Hal.dll – Hardware Abstraction Layer (Level of hardware abstraction). The Winodws system manages all the equipment connected to your PC or laptop.

For this reason, you may notice that when you connect some devices, nothing is displayed and there are no calls associated with this device. HAL is the level that lies between the hardware and the rest of the operating system. Hal.dll includes low hardware features that the OS can call with the DLL. This in turn enhances security. Sometimes you may encounter an error on the blue screen of death “HAL INITIALIZATION FAILED 0x0000005C”. This means that one of the devices could not start correctly.
