Hello,

I can't boot up into safe mode because the system hangs upon loading mup.sys

I'm using WIN XP and I'm going to add some new hardware soon. Since I can't boot up in safe mode and remove all of the drivers of my old hardware, I want to know if replacing Hal.dll is ok? I replaced this file accidentally once only to find out that WIN XP had to re install of my hardware again including the drivers. Can I replace it again or is it a no-no to do replace this file.

P.S. if anybody knows about the hang up in safe mode loading of the file mup.sys, tell me!

Did you try to search Microsoft's support database for this problem? They have an excellent record of error messages and solutions.

I'm not familiar with hal.dll, so I have no idea what it does. If your computer starts saying "Stop, Dave, my mind is going," then you might be in trouble though.
