Question about Acer Aspire 5315 Notebook
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 web cam application that is using the driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will automatically reinstall the web cam driver, and the problem will be fixed!
