You do need to include detailed information so we can aid in the diagnosis of the problem.

excerpt from 'HalFAQ';

HAL is *not* concerned with how to use the hardware, nor is HAL concerned with configuring the hardware. However, HAL can be used in applications that needs the hardware by providing the list of devices and space for storing configuration values. One example is configuration files for display servers.
