How can I get hal.dll?

Recommended Posts

I sometimes get the error message that the file hal.dll is missing from a WinXP installation. Where or how can I find it?

Think he means hal.dll is missing or corupted (bluescreen).  I think that its a hardware malfunction or a driver issue.  Could also be bad memory/  Hal means hardware extraction layer Thats the only time I ever see that error. sometimes if i have a corrupted CD when I am installing windows ill get Hal errors but its generally not the blue screen type.  Anyways Roffen thats a hard problem to fix without being able to diagnose it my self and recreate it myself in person I cannt really say.  But I don't think you would be able to fix that.  Only thing you could really do is try to reinstall windows if it was a big problem on that computer and try to find stable drivers.  Thats a massive headache for you too probs.
