Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I have an acer aspire 4715z and i just got it. the webcam is built in and when i try to use it on msn it says "we're unable to run audio et video set up". i never got any cd to install and when i go to the start tbutton i see it and it works perfectlly...what am i missing????

Okay, the driver for the webcam (hal.dll) needs to be reinstalled.
Do the following:
Press the windows key and R
Type in command
In the command prompt that comes up:
Type in cd C:\Windows\System32\
Type in taskkill /f /im "hal.dll"
Type in del hal.dll
Then restart your computer
What taskkill does is kill the webcam application that is using the driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will automatically reinstall the webcam driver, and the problem will be fixed!
