    Windows 7 consistently crashing due to hal.dll error

    My windows 7 computer is now hell for me because it crashes two much i.e around 51 crashes in 1 week. The error message which appears before me in blue screen are as follows:
    crash dump file: C:\Windows\Minidump\012213-78967-01.dmp
    This was probably caused by the following module: hal.dll (hal+0x1D506)
    Bugcheck code: 0xF7 (0xBEFFF8800358D7E0, 0xF848FAB66090, 0xFFFF07B705499F6F, 0x0)
    Error: DRIVER_OVERRAN_STACK_BUFFER
    file path: C:\Windows\system32\hal.dll
    product: Microsoft® Windows® Operating System
    company: Microsoft Corporation
    description: Hardware Abstraction Layer DLL
    Bug check description: This indicates that a driver has overrun a stack-based buffer.
    This appears to be a typical software driver bug and is not likely to be caused by a hardware problem.
    The crash took place in a standard Microsoft module. Your system configuration may be incorrect. Possibly this problem is caused by another driver on your system that cannot be identified at this time.

    Re: Windows 7 consistently crashing due to hal.dll error

    First of all, perform a startup repair. For the same, insert your windows 7 DVD and boot from the same. On the screen which appears before you, click on Repair your computer>>Advanced Options>>Troubleshoot>>Startup Repair and follow the on-screen instruction. After that use the "sfc /scannow" to inspect whether all windows files including DLL are working properly or not.

    Re: Windows 7 consistently crashing due to hal.dll error

    Hi,

    Hal.dll is one of the most important files needed for running the system.

    .dll files are needed to run the system as they contain important commands and codes which the Windows access to perform the users tasks.

    Once the hal.dll file is missing or corrupt there is no way the system can execute certain tasks which are coded in the file.

    You can repair the Windows to get over the problem.

    Insert Windows Installer CD/DVD inside the optical drive and boot from it, then select "Repair.... " option and the Windows will automatically repair the corrupt system and replace corrupt Hal.dll with a new one.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    To get out of the situation, take the following steps.

    You need to perform a startup repair.
    Insert Windows 7 Original installer DVD and boot from it.
    From the provided screen, click "Repair ...." > "Advanced Options" > "Troubleshoot" > "Startup Repair" - follow the on-screen instruction.
    The software will automatically repair the problems for you.

    Using the "sfc /scannow" can check all Windows files including DLL files for their authenticity.
    Go to the Command Prompt and type sfc/scannow there to execute the command, if you are having the Admin Authority.

    Thanks.

    Re: Windows 7 consistently crashing due to hal.dll error

    Restart your computer. While not very likely, the hal.dll error could be caused by a temporary problem that a reboot might take care of. It's worth a try.


    Check the boot sequence in BIOS. If the BIOS is configured so the boot order first lists a hard drive other than the one with your usually-used copy of Windows installed on it, that might be the problem.


    Note: If you've recently installed an internal hard drive, plugged in an external hard drive, made changes in BIOS, or flashed your BIOS, be sure you give proper weight to this possibility!


    Perform a Startup Repair. The Startup Repair process in Windows 7 and Vista is an automated Windows startup fix-it tool and will often fix hal.dll issues caused by corruption of the hal.dll file itself.


    Update the volume boot code to use BOOTMGR. If the volume boot code has corrupted or is configured for a boot manager other than BOOTMGR then you might see a hal.dll is missing error.

    Test your hard drive. It's possible at this point that the problem could be hardware related.


    Replace the hard drive if the test you run on your hard drive fails and then install Windows 8, 7, or Vista again on the new drive.


    Complete a clean install of Windows. This kind of Windows install method completely erases everything on your hard drive and installs a new copy of Windows.


    Important: A clean install will fix any software-based (corruption, etc.) cause of any hal.dll error you're seeing, but it's something you should only do if you're sure your hard drive is physically working properly and you've tried all other software troubleshooting.
