Understanding and Repairing DLL Errors 

Understanding and Repairing DLL Errors DLL stands for Dynamic Link Library, and a DLL file is essentially a file that multiple programs can use to learn how to get around your PC. While DLL errors are common, they are not horribly easy to fix. Here are the two most common DLL error messages as well as introductory steps on how to fix the problems. Missing/corrupt hal.dll

1. First try restarting the computer, because sometimes this message appears when there is no problem.

2. If you have recently worked with your BIOS or your boot order, this could have caused the problem. If you don't know what that means, it is probably something else.

3. Re-install/replace the file using the CD that Windows XP came on.

4. Do a System Restore to a point before the problem began.

5. Reinstall Windows, but only if nothing else helps.

Invalid page fault / error in Kernel32.dll

1. First try restarting the computer, because sometimes this message appears when there is no problem.

2. Remove any dll files from your desktop. They can interfere with programs opening.

3. Scan for viruses, as sometimes viruses result in DLL errors.

4. Isolate the cause: if the error appears only when you open a specific program, try uninstalling and reinstalling that particular program, and make sure you have installed any updates available.

5. If the error appears when you use a certain device or hardware, make sure that device's drivers are up to date.

6. Reinstall Windows, but only if nothing else helps. Keep in mind that these messages sometimes appear in error, so following step #1 is important before you make any changes to your computer's configuration. There are many more DLL error messages that you receive, but these two are among the most common. Even for these, there are more in-depth steps that experienced PC users can take to address the problem before you resort to reinstalling Windows.
