If you know the make and model of your TV Tuner card, I suggest going to the manufacturer's website to download your drivers and reinstall them.

When I boot I get at times <Windowsroot>\system32\hal.dll. how can I cure this


If the system tells you the the HAL.DLL file is corrupted or has been modified in any way, run a simple repair installed.

HAL stands for Hardware Abstract Layer. It's a blueprint of the hardware installed in your computer at the time Windows is installed. It was one of MS failed attempts at stopping people from ghosting their OS installations to other computers, but the fail part is that all you need to do is run repair install and it will create a new HAL.DLL file with a new image, negating the issue entirely.

When I try to boot it simply says windows rootsystem 32hal.dll missing or corrupt, replace the missing file. How to go about it.


HAL stands for Hardware Abstraction Layer. As it's a hardware related file it is not wise to copy from another computer. You need to reinstall by a bootable cd. try an external Cd drive if you don't have one.

or Restore your PC to the time that it worked well

All Programs-> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore

then check 'Restore my computer an earlier time" and select the date your computer worked well

and next next next next finally Restart your computer

Having problems with windows rootsystem32hal.dll. what the big problem is i dont know if it came with windows xp home edition or if you can reinstall bujt using f12 or do i need a cd?


One of the key design features of Windows is that it supports multiple hardware platforms without the need for complete different versions of the OS. This support is accomplished through the Hardware Abstraction Layer(hal.dll)
You can extract the hal.dll from your Windows Xp Installation CD to the System32 folder through the recover console.

My emachine will not boot up


In the removal process, you may have removed the hal.dll file. The system configuration has changed and Windows is looking in the wrong place for it.

If Windows XP, use the XP installation CD. Change the boot order and boot from the CD.

First, try to restore the hal.dll file from the Windows XP CD. Boot your system without the CD.

If that doesn't work, use the Recovery Console which should fix the problem.

If not, more extensive work, such as Windows Repair or Clean Install would be necessary.

Hope that helps.

Windows system 32 hal.dll error after restoring e-machine


There's actually a number of reasons why these annoying little DLL errors happen, but the most common, is caused when new programs are installed over all old ones and the old ones are not completely uninstalled 100%, causing registry pile ups and of course, getting a .DLL error messages.

Another reason, is damage that's been done by malware/spyware/adware programs, attaching themselves to your PC and wrecking havoc, deleting crucial DLL files from your PC.

The hal.dll file is created during install from 5 other dlls. HAL is the Hardware Abstraction Layer and it's the interface between the system drivers and the actual hardware.

Copying hal.dll will not resolve the problem.

A lot of times the file will be reported missing due to corruption of the boot sector or of the file system

Causes of the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error include, naturally, a damaged hal.dll file or a hal.dll file that has been deleted or moved from its intended location.

Additional causes may include a damaged or missing boot.ini file or possibly a physically damaged HDD.

Suggested remodies-

1. Restart the PC. The hal.dll error could be a fluke.

2. Check for proper boot order in BIOS. You might see the hal.dll error if the boot order in BIOS is first looking at a hard drive other than your main hard drive.
Note: If you've recently changed your boot order or recently flashed your BIOS, this may be what's causing your problem.

3. Run Windows XP System Restore from a command prompt. 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.

4. Repair or replace the boot.ini file. 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.

5. Write a new partition boot sector to the Windows XP system partition. If the partition boot sector has become corrupt or isn't properly configured, you may receive the hal.dll error.

6. Restore the hal.dll file from the Windows XP CD. If the hal.dll file is truly the cause of the problem, restoring it from the original Windows XP CD may do the trick.

7. Perform a repair installation of Windows XP. This type of installation should replace any missing or corrupt files. Continue troubleshooting if this does not resolve the issue.

8. Perform a clean installation of Windows XP. This type of installation will completely remove Windows XP from your PC and install it again from scratch.

Note: While this will almost certainly resolve any hal.dll errors, it is a time consuming process due to the fact that all of your data must be backed up and then later restored.

Important: If you can't gain access to your files to back them up, understand that you will lose them all if you continue with a clean installation of Windows XP.

9. Replace the hard drive. Finally, if all else has failed, including the clean installation from the last step, you're most likely facing a hardware issue with your hard drive.

10. Perform a new installation of Windows XP after installing the new hard drive.

I have not tried it - but HERE is a free program purporting to fix the error.

Hal.dll error after booting


HAL - Hardware Abstraction Layer (hal.dll)
HAL is Microsoft’s abbreviation for the Hardware Abstraction Layer, the technology and drivers that let the Windows NT, 2000, and XP operating systems communicate with your PC’s hardware. HAL is one of several features–along with the NT file system (NTFS) that replaced the much less secure MS-DOS–that make NT-based operating systems more secure and reliable than Windows 95, 98, and Me.
HAL.dll prevents applications from directly accessing your PC’s system memory, CPU, or hardware devices (such as video and sound cards)–a method that can prevent many device conflicts and crashes. Unfortunately, HAL.dll sometimes also slows or stops DOS games and programs, which need to load their own memory managers or control hardware directly for better performance.
With HAL.dll in the way, developers must rewrite or even abandon their older software in favor of newer, HAL-compatible versions. Microsoft has pressured hardware makers to provide or support technologies such as MMX, DirectX, and 3D graphics language OpenGL, all of which allow fast but indirect access to the advanced high-performance features of video, sound, and CPU hardware. Such access also makes for a better visual experience when using Windows for Web and productivity applications; improved graphics performance is evident all over Windows XP’s new user interface.
XP also offers some new compatibility-mode features that let you run programs meant to run under earlier operating systems, but, frankly, most DOS-based and even some Windows-based games simply won’t work with the new OS.
