Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
Okay, the driver for WiFi (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 WiFi application that is using the driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will automatically reinstall the WiFi driver, and the problem will be fixed!
