Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any Windows updates you might need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardwareor software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restartyour computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Method 1 :

Perform System File Checker (SFC) scan which will help you in resolving the issue.
To determine whether the issue that you are experiencing is caused by one or more system files that are used by Windows 7, run the System File Checker tool. The System File Checker tool scans system files and replaces incorrect versions of the system files by using the correct versions.

Follow the instructions in the link below to run SFC scan.

Method 2:

HAL initialization failed usually is hardware so have you added any new hardware lately? If a PC maybe a card
has become unseated. It is possible though not likely that is it driver related so have you added or changed any
drivers lately? Check in Windows Updates to see if any drivers have updated (assuming you can get in).
Also it is possible the problem is antivirus or other software related though rare.

Can you access via Safe Mode - repeatedly tap F8 as you boot. If not do you have a Vista disk or can you borrow
one from a friend? You can also use the utilities below to make one if needed.

If you get into Windows see the generic bluescreen troubleshooter and the driver update methods in next message.


This tells you how to access the System Recovery Options and/or with a Vista Disk

Try StartUp Repair from Recovery Options
