Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
My dell laptop started recently to shutdown after booting with error messages that dll and exe corrupt. also, noticed the fan is stopped. how to sort out the problem?
Easy solution is there :
Check the fan with external power (12v. DC). If damaged replace it. Give a clean windows installation when the fan is OK.
If your mainboard does not supply power to the fan than you have a major problem with mainboard. Replace mainboard.

The fan probably needs to be replaced or at least the rotor. I don't think the blades are faulty, but it wouldn't hurt to check.
about the files ... it happens a lot. the best way to fix it is to repair the operating system via CD, if not possible, you might need to reinstall os. before you do anything, i suggest you take the disc and get someone to hook it up with his computer and extract data you don't wanna lose.

I am going to start with the assumption you have already tried to reboot, then next choices from there go kinda like this...
Run windows XP restore from command prompt. (From
safe ,mode type C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and press Enter. 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.
Replace the boot.ini file (run msconfig) 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.
Note: If repairing the boot.ini does correct the
hal.dll issue but the problem reappears after a reboot and you've
recently installed Internet Explorer 8 in Windows XP, uninstall IE8. In this
specific situation, IE8 could be the root cause of your hal.dll problem.
Right click on c: drive, click
on properties, then tools, click on the error checking button, the put a
checkmark in each box, Click start and it may say it needs to run on next
reboot click OK the reboot. The physical
part of your hard drive that stores any part of the hal.dll file has been
damaged, you're likely to see errors like this.
Run a repair install of the operating system. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.
