failed to initialize HAL!
I never had that message till I upgraded to 8.04 Hardy Heron.

Did the update wizard and freeze and exit by itself? I think it did. On facing the same problem, I backed up my data and went for a Hardy clean install.

I've seen this with the upgrade. Most are uninstalling the hal and reinstalling with success.
You could try:
sudo /etc/init.d/hal restart (see if you get the hardware abst layer restart message)
You'll probably end up reinstalling hal anyway.
Hope this helps.......

Or before doing a clean install, you could at least browse this link (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=291130) for a solution regarding the Hardware Abstraction Layer error.
