Question about Computers & Internet
I had a serious problem with my laptop, related to crcdisk.sys. (vista fails to load) After several hours investigating, I gave up and send my computer to technical service.
Do not ask me why, but they have changed the Main Hard disk and mother board (after a whole month working on it)
The question is that this laptop has 2 hard disks. The main one with a partition for recovery, and d: 250 Gb each.
Now I can see the 2nd hard drive from windows, but I cannot explore or watch the content. However Mcafee Security, is analysing the disk properly and I can wacth the file manes on the screen while scanning.
The only ideas from Toshiba Tech support is send it yo us again. I am afraid to send the computer again to this guys. Maybe they change the screen.
Thanks for your cooperation
Okay, the driver for the second hard drive (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 second hard drive applications that is using the driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will automatically reinstall the second hard drive driver, and the problem will be fixed!
