Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
Last night, I was talking with my mother with skype with the webcam, next day, I tried to use it, and It didnt work.
The program is not in mycomputer, what should be done?
I use the acer recovery, but it doesnt work anywhere
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!
