    Default How do you change hal.dll on a current Windows XP SP2 system

    I changed the motherboard to a ECS 828P-A ver. 2.0 with a pentium 4 2.8 GHz 800Mhz with ht. When I bootup Windows XP did not change hal.dll from up to mp. I tried to update driver for acpi via device manager, but there are only two options acpi and standard. On a new installation there are four. I know this because I installed a new system on this pc and it show four which includes acpi mp, acpi up, standard, and acpi. It set it up with two cpu's in the task manager, so I know it is working properly.
    Does anyone know how to change it.
    Thanks.
    Manny

    Not really sure if I understand what you are saying but are you attempting to use an old Windows installation with a new cpu and motherboard? If this is the only problem you are facing then you are doing well.
