hal.dll Error when installing WINDOWS XP!

How to Fix Missing Hal.dll Errors

  1. Restart your computer. It’s possible that the hal.dll error could be a fluke.Note: Since hal.dll errors appear before Windows XP is fully loaded, it’s not possible toproperly restart your computer. Instead, you’ll need to force a restart. See How to Restart Anything if you need help doing that.
  2. Check for proper boot order in BIOS. You might see the hal.dll error if the boot order inBIOS 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.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.

Getting Sleepy while reading or falling asleep while reading? Then take a look at these tips.

Time It Right If you’re already sleepy, staying awake to read is more of a challenge than normal. Our natural patterns of sleepiness and alertness, known as circadian rhythms, play a role in timing your reading assignments. Your body naturally gets sleepy between midnight and 7 a.m., with another sleepy period midafternoon. You’re more likely to feel alert between 6 and 11 p.m., according to the National Institutes of Health. Since not everyone’s circadian rhythms are the same, you should tune in to your body’s specific rhythms to identify your alert times. When possible, time your reading to when you’re … Continue reading Getting Sleepy while reading or falling asleep while reading? Then take a look at these tips.
