Try uninstalling the existing driver per the following (this is an email from HP in 2003 where I couldn't reinstall the drivers following some printing problems), then reinstall :-} This was in reference to a HP5150 deskjet, but I believe the 5550 uses the same driver, possibly others in the 5xxx series. I'll apologise in advance in case the format of the email goes a little screwy :-} --- Thank you for contacting HP Total Care. When attempting to reinstall the printer driver using USB connection, the 'Looking for new hardware' screen will open and the computer will fail to respond under the following conditions: * Attempting to install the printer driver after an unsuccessful installation.

Does the message specify any particular dll? If you could copy the dll?s exact name and repost this question it might help the community in finding you a better fix. The best I can do considering the situation is refer you to the HP site, to a page there where you can download the relevant drivers: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=304431&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=9&submit.x=11&lang=en&cc=us download the driver that fits your operating system and follow the instructions. Usually installation doesn?t require much computer savvy, just repeatedly pressing the ok button. Offcourse if you still have the original installation CD that you got with the printer then check to see if the driver is already there. Good luck

Mss32.dll missing on my pc


There are several different ways that mss32.dll errors can show up on your computer. Here are some of the more common ways that you might see mss32.dll errors:
  • "Mss32.dll Not Found"

  • "This application failed to start because mss32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

  • "Cannot find [PATH]\mss32.dll"

  • "The file mss32.dll is missing."

  • "Cannot start [APPLICATION]. A required component is missing: mss32.dll. Please install [APPLICATION] again."

Mss32.dll error messages might appear while using or installing certain programs, when Windows starts or shuts down, or maybe even during a Windows installation.
The context of the mss32.dll error is an important piece of information that will be helpful while solving the problem.
Cause of Mss32.dll Errors Mss32.dll errors are caused by situations that lead to the removal or corruption of the mss32.dll file.
In some cases, mss32.dll errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus or malware issue or even a hardware failure.
How to Fix Mss32.dll Errors Important: Do not download mss32.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of mss32.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source. Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the mss32.dll error.
  1. Restore mss32.dll from the Recycle Bin: The easiest possible cause of a "missing" mss32.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it.
    If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted mss32.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover mss32.dll with a free file recovery program.
    Important:Recovering a deleted copy of mss32.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.
  2. Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system: Some mss32.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the mss32.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.
  3. Use System Restore to undo recent system changes: If you suspect that the mss32.dll error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, a System Restore could solve the problem.
  4. Reinstall the program that uses the mss32.dll file: If the mss32.dll DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file.
    Important: Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the mss32.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.
  5. Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to mss32.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file mss32.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.
    Note: The mss32.dll file may or may not be related to video cards - this was just an example. The key here is to pay very close attention to the context of the error and troubleshoot accordingly.
  6. Roll back a driver to a previously installed version: if mss32.dll errors began after updating a particular hardware device's driver.
  7. Run the sfc /scannow System File Checker command: to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the mss32.dll file. If this DLL file is provided my Microsoft, the System File Checker tool should restore it.
  8. Install any available Windows updates: Many service packs and other patches replace or update some of the hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer. The mss32.dll file could be included in one of those updates.
  9. Test your memory and then test your hard drive: I've left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer's memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause mss32.dll errors as they fail.
    Note: If the hardware fails any of your tests, replace the memory or replace the hard drive as soon as possible.
  10. Repair your installation of Windows: If the individual mss32.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.
  11. Use a free registry cleaner to repair mss32.dll related issues in the registry. A free registry cleaner program may be able to help by removing invalid mss32.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error.
    Important: I rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners. I've included the option here as a "last resort" attempt before the destructive step coming up next.
  12. Perform a clean installation of Windows: A clean install of Windows will erase everything from thehard driveand install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the mss32.dll error, this should be your next course of action.
    Important: All the information on your hard drive will be erased during a clean install. Make sure you've made the best attempt possible to fix the mss32.dll error using a troubleshooting step prior to this one.
  13. Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any mss32.dll errors persist. After a clean install of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.
Applies To The mss32.dll error message could apply to any program or system that might utilize the file on any of Microsoft's operating systems including Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.

Still Having Mss32.dll Issues? Let a community of computer support enthusiasts help out! Post the details of your mss32.dll issue in the PC Support Forum. Be sure to let us know the exact mss32.dll error message that you're seeing and what steps, if any, you've already taken to fix the problem.

Windows system 32 hal.dll error after restoring e-machine


There's actually a number of reasons why these annoying little DLL errors happen, but the most common, is caused when new programs are installed over all old ones and the old ones are not completely uninstalled 100%, causing registry pile ups and of course, getting a .DLL error messages.

Another reason, is damage that's been done by malware/spyware/adware programs, attaching themselves to your PC and wrecking havoc, deleting crucial DLL files from your PC.

The hal.dll file is created during install from 5 other dlls. HAL is the Hardware Abstraction Layer and it's the interface between the system drivers and the actual hardware.

Copying hal.dll will not resolve the problem.

A lot of times the file will be reported missing due to corruption of the boot sector or of the file system

Causes of the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error include, naturally, a damaged hal.dll file or a hal.dll file that has been deleted or moved from its intended location.

Additional causes may include a damaged or missing boot.ini file or possibly a physically damaged HDD.

Suggested remodies-

1. Restart the PC. The hal.dll error could be a fluke.

2. Check for proper boot order in BIOS. You might see the hal.dll error if the boot order in BIOS is first looking at a hard drive other than your main hard drive.
Note: If you've recently changed your boot order or recently flashed your BIOS, this may be what's causing your problem.

3. Run Windows XP System Restore from a command prompt. If this doesn't work or you're receiving the hal.dll error message before you're able to complete this process, move on to the next step.

4. Repair or replace the boot.ini file. This will work if the cause of the problem is actually Windows XP's boot.ini file and not the hal.dll file, which is often times the case.

5. Write a new partition boot sector to the Windows XP system partition. If the partition boot sector has become corrupt or isn't properly configured, you may receive the hal.dll error.

6. Restore the hal.dll file from the Windows XP CD. If the hal.dll file is truly the cause of the problem, restoring it from the original Windows XP CD may do the trick.

7. Perform a repair installation of Windows XP. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.

8. Perform a clean installation of Windows XP. This type of installation will completely remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch.

Note: While this will almost certainly resolve any hal.dll errors, it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

Important: If you can't gain access to your files to back them up, understand that you will lose them all if you continue with a clean installation of Windows XP.

9. Replace the hard drive. Finally, if all else has failed, including the clean installation from the last step, you're most likely facing a hardware issue with your hard drive.

10. Perform a new installation of Windows XP after installing the new hard drive.

I have not tried it - but HERE is a free program purporting to fix the error.

Do you have a Lexmark printer? I found this dll file and many of the comments about it relate to Lexmark printer issues. Click the below link and it will download your missing dll file. I searched for "wiafdrv.dll" and there were no hits for this dll, but there was one for the dll file "wiafbdrv.dll". Make sure before clicking the link below, that this is the correctly named dll file you need.

Extract this file and place the dll file in the correct location as specified by the error you're receiving.
