Question about Computers & Internet
Hi there. Had problems recently with my laptop where Windows wouldn't start, saying hal.dll fault. I took it to be repaired but now my wireless switch crashes the laptop when it is pressed. Do I have to re-install Windows using recovery cd or is there a way to change a setting? I've already been in device manager and update the driver but still no luck.
From the pattern shown for the Sony Vaio systems, I recommend a concerted effort to get an answer from Sony or the Wireless card manufacturer. The issue has to be in the implimentation of the Wireless N for that card.

I am going to start with the assumption you have already tried to reboot, then next choices from there go kinda like this...
Run windows XP restore from command prompt. (From
safe ,mode type C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and press Enter. If
this doesn't work or you're receiving the hal.dll error message before you're
able to complete this process, move on to the next step.
Replace the boot.ini file (run msconfig) This will
work if the cause of the problem is actually Windows XP's boot.ini file and not
the hal.dll file, which is often times the case.
Note: If repairing the boot.ini does correct the
hal.dll issue but the problem reappears after a reboot and you've
recently installed Internet Explorer 8 in Windows XP, uninstall IE8. In this
specific situation, IE8 could be the root cause of your hal.dll problem.
Right click on c: drive, click
on properties, then tools, click on the error checking button, the put a
checkmark in each box, Click start and it may say it needs to run on next
reboot click OK the reboot. The physical
part of your hard drive that stores any part of the hal.dll file has been
damaged, you're likely to see errors like this.
Run a repair install of the operating system. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.
