System HaltedA DOS error message that means the computer could not continue due to a hardware or software problem. It can occur if a memory parity error is detected or if a peripheral board goes awry. A program bug can also cause this as well as a virus.
Testing memory, testing for viruses and removing peripheral boards one at a time are ways to isolate the problem.
