Question about Averatec 3200 Notebook
I got my computer over 2 years ago...no problems until now... the original AC adapter broke...I got a new one...and since then the laptop is heating so much that the plastic around the AC power cord is melting...
I touched the jack in the computer and I burned myself... any way to fix that?
Okay, the driver for the system fans (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 system fans application that is using the driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will automatically reinstall the system fans driver, and the problem will be fixed!
