Question about Computers & Internet
Hal.dll is the core of Windows' Hardware Abstraction Layer, which allows applications to access devices in the system without knowledge of the specific protocol used by any one device.
Although drivers for most hardware are contained in external files, core drivers (which are required to support the kernel) are compiled into Hal.dll.
The Windows 2000 and Windows XP CDs supplied by Microsoft have a tool called the Recovery Console which can be used to repair errors that prevent Windows XP from starting using the command line. OEM versions of Windows XP, including computers that were supplied with Windows XP preinstalled, may not have this utility, so the following steps may not work:
ATTRIB -H -R -S C:\BOOT.INI
BOOTCFG /REBUILD FIXBOOT
EXPAND D:\I386\HAL.DL_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\HAL.DLL

If the dll file is missing, use a search engine to find dll files. You can replace it. I have had to do it several times and its harmless to your computer.
