Looks like your harddrive may have a fault. Find out the drive manufacturer (should be easily accessed in the base of the laptop) and then download/run the manufacturer's diagnostic program.

Are you trying to boot to a different hard drive that came out of another WinXP computer?

Look at the link below for help with that error. HAL stands for Hardware Abstraction Layer. That is a necessary file to configure the hardware.
