  1. Hello,
    I turnt on my laptop and this error came up
    RTHDCPL.EXE- Illegal System DLL Relocation
    The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occured because the DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\HHCTRL.OCX occupied an address range reserved for Windows systems DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.


    Does anyone know what this means?. There seems to be no difference to anything on my laptop yet so im not sure what it affects. Is it saying i should take my laptop back to the shop i bought it from?

    RTHDCPL.EXE is part of the Realtek onboard sound software. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the software from add remove programmes in your control panel.
