  1. When finished, take the CD out of the disk drive, shut down and restart your computer.
  2. If the problem is not fixed, repeat steps 1 to 4 and when you receipt the command prompt, enter:

EXPAND D:\I386\HAL.DL_C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\HAL.DLL

As always when finished, reboot your computer.

 

Hope this helps you fix Hal.dll errors with your computer.
