Blue screen after installing software

I have a PowerBook with the Intel processor running 10.7. I recently, using bootcamp installed XP. After a while it crashed on me. I tried reinstalling and it came up with the error that the HAL.DLL was either corrupt or damaged. No matter what I tried, I kept getting the same message.
The only option was to reformat the partition and reinstall, I was informed. This I did and still got the same error.
So I tried to remove that partition, reinstalled OSX. The partition remained. I wanted it off. Then I reformatted (erased) the Hard drive and reinstalled the software.
Now this is where it becomes interesting!
Since then I can only reboot in safe mode.
I have tried all the repairs and verifications and they all report OK.
But I still get only a blue screen on normal startup.
Any help to sort this will be gratefully received.
