Question about Computers & Internet
So I have an HP mini and when I boot up it says "Failed to initialize HAL!" After this I can't connect to wifi or use any USB ports or access system configuration
Best I could find is on this site, as you didn't specify what operating system you are trying to use: http://www.reviversoft.com/blog/2012/12/hal-initialization-failed/info. This usually only happens if you are using Linux or Windows 8.

Did it came across blue screen of death or BOOTMGR is missing/ NTLDR is missing ?
Use Last Known Good Configuration
You can also try to boot the operating system with the LastKnown Good Configuration feature.
This feature will allow you to undo anychanges that caused problems in the CurrentControlSet
registry key, whichdefines hardware and driver settings. The Last Known Good Configuration
featurereplaces the contents of the CurrentControlSet registry key with a backup copythat was
last used to successfully start up the operating system. To use the Last Known Good
Configuration feature, first restart the computer by pressing [Ctrl][Alt][Delete]. When you
see the message Please select the operating system to start or hear the single beep, press
[F8] to display the Windows Advanced Options menu. Select the Last Known Good Configuration
item from the menu and press [Enter].Keep in mind that you get only one shot with the Last
KnownGood Configuration feature. In other words, if it fails to revive your WindowsXP on the
first attempt, the backup copy is also corrupt.
If the method above can't help you, you can learn how to recover data when windows won't start
