My PC with recently installed XP Home will not recognize the cd-rom drive anymore (after a system error from trying to install a sound card driver).I tried doing an uninstall, reboot, reinstall, update driver, etc nothing works! It always comes up with something about not finding suitable drivers for this device.Is there any easy way to get the drivers back again? I only have a single Windows XP Home cd which is meant to be installed on a new Dell PC, but worked ok with my somewhat generic PC. Someone told me it was just a recovery cd, but it did the full installation.
My Hewlett Packard Pavilion ZT3000 notebook was running fine but then Windows wouldn't load and the message, "system32driverstfs.sys is missing or corrupt" came up. I'm using Windows XP.Only two things happened prior to this occurring, the lid got shut a little hard but no damage and I downloaded Servicepack 2.
I ran a HHD self test and it tested ok, all the help screens, etc. come up fine but not Windows.I have an operating disk and a recovery disk but neither seems to help
XP pro computer tells me this when i turn it on. Offers to load in safe mode first, then tells me its lost/broken this file, push r to repair. Push r and it restarts. Cant work out how to fix this problem, and not liking the name ntfs in the error at all.
I had a bug that deleted the mouse and keyboard drivers when it executed. I restarted the computer but cannot use the mouse of keyboard at all. therefore cannot use the computer. i have tried using the 6 disk setup for xp sp1 but when i select 1 for the drive it stops. i also cannot boot from the xp cd. i can however access the cd-rom using a boot floppy. but i do not know the actual names of the drives i am trying to reinstall.
My Network adaptor screen identifies a problem (yellow exclamation mark) saying NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller - McAfee Core NDIS Intermediate Filter Miniport and WAN Miniport (IP) - McAfee Core NDIS Intermediate Filter Miniport ive lost internet connection and hence can surf the net or email. Does anyone know specifically how to download the correct drivers and then install on the PC. PS I have a lap top and a portable harddrive
Both cd-roms: LG cd-rom & Liteon cdrw have stopped reading disks. Both are plug/play, using xp drivers. They are recognized by explorer,no issues according to the device driver. Both spin up, but won't read disk. In win explorer, selecting the LG cd-rom produces a red X: E: is not accessible,incorrect function The Lite-on did the same thing, until I downloaded/installed the firmware from the mfg. Not it acts like it is at least looking at the disk, but it doesn't see anything. Is there anyway to re-install the xp drivers (remember I can't read a CD)? Do you think I could re-install the xp drivers
basically i got this very old and cheap brandless webcam, it came with a mini-cdr which holds the drivers, when i place the mini-cdr into my dvd drive, it made a load ###scccrreeeaaaccchhhing### noise, then the installer runs and i got the error shown in the top of the pic, as i continue the installation i got another error, shown at the botton of the pic, now i know maybe the disc is corroupt or something, so i decided to use device manager to install the drivers manually.
when windows did found the driver on the disc, it turns out to be a notepad file, which was strange, but i continue to install anyway, but windows pops up a message saying the driver isn't signed or could be harmful or something like that, i cancel the installation and uplugs the camera. i thought it made sense since the mini-cdr could actually be a coaster or a badly burnt disc, as the installer states there's an error, but should i try anyways? i was thinking if i click yes when device manager ask me and continue to manually install the drivers would i damage my pc? when i place the mini-cdr in my dvd drive, it made a very load screeeeaachhhing noises, did the disc damage the lens or the drive?
I come to boot up the computerwhen booting in normal mode or safe mode I get the message system32/drivers/ntfs.sys is missing or corrupt please insert original windows disk and press 'r' on the first screen. so i put in the disk and it says boot CD but then after a while it just comes up with the same message telling me to insert original disk.I have tried this now with 2 different windows disks, iv changed to boot settings and this still does not work.
video card on my laptop messed up somehow, i can see a exclamation mark on the device manager in the display drivers tab... now im searching to update my driver but cant find any sources that would suit xp windows now everything is very laggy cuz it shows im not using any video card or something like that anyway?
I purchased a SIIG PCI firmware adapter. It has no drivers and says that it will use Win XP drivers. Well I installed the board and booted the pc, Win XP recognized the hardware but could not find any drivers. I tried unplugging it manually, installing it in another card slot with no luck. I took it back to my pc dealer and he plugged it in his system and had no problems. I decide to try another brand, an IO Gear GIC1394.
A friends HP Media Center PC m7077c crashed. Had no recover disk, etc. Installed XP Pro SP2 and I need drivers (according to Device Manager). No sound is obvious but video controller is not. Video seems okay. Where do I find drivers for this machine. XP Pro, Home and MCE are different OS's ... as far as my experience. The drivers are not the same.
Whenever i install drivers on my pc, (i've tried graphics card drivers and wireless network card drivers) my pc stops working. When i installed the graphics card drivers, i tried testing the graphics on a game (counter-strike) but as soon as i got into the game, the pc flashes a blue screen, and reboots. I cant see what the blue screen says because it flashes on and off again to quick for me to read it. I decided to uninstall the graphics card drivers, and the game worked perfectly, but the graphics were REALLY bad. So i thought i might need to update some other drivers, so i tried to install my wireless network card, but when i finished installing the drivers when i had to restart my computer, it flashed the BSOD.... AGAIN! I need help urgently as im going to a LAN gaming comp called "rezidue" and its on in 2 weeks, i need my pc fixed by then! All these problems started when i upgraded my CPU. Everything was running smooth, and i was happily playing along on my computer, when i was asked what my FPS was in counter-strike, and i was all "mine are 65!" and there like "wow that sucks, mines 130" so i set out on my epic quest to get better FPS then everyone else and MAN THAT WAS A MISTAKE. I upgraded from my celeron 2.8ghz cpu to a P4 3.0ghz HT cpu, and thats when things started messing up on me. My entire system is as follows (incase it can help someone help me) P4 3.0ghz HT CPU, Microstar P4 motherboard, 128mb Nvidia Geforce mx4000 AGP x8 graphics card, 256MB ddr ram (recently brought new 1GB ddr ram off ebay just for rezidue! should be here soon!) TP-LINK 54mbps wireless network card) And last but not least
I just recieved an IBM laptop while downloading some software, it was suggested by the site that I should download all the updated drivers. I am very wary of this advice because I don't want to fix something that doesn't seem to be broken, but at the same time, I would like to be up-to-date. I am running XP Pro, how I should proceed? And where I might safely download such drivers?
Is there anybody who can tell how I can add a driver so that windows Xp recognize this and does a unattended installation of the hardware device (a example is a USB mouse) But the Windows XP is alreay installed so, I am not really looking for a sysprep solution?
I recently reformatted my computer, after it went FUBAR on me, and now I am having some glitchy scrolls whenever I scroll down web pages, and I have no sound, it's the same thing that happened the last time I reformatted it, and it was like 5 months ago, so I can't remember the damned names of the drivers. Any help? I have windows xp home edition, and my graphics card is an ATI.. I remember something on the lines of CCC Catalyst Control Center.
I accidently uninstalled the drivers for my Sony CD-RW CRX160E and Samsung CD-ROm SC-148C players. I have tried to roll back the drivers but there was no backup. Since my Windows XP was installed by my work and I no longer work for that company I am a bit stuck as to what to do.

I have a problem with an application starting to load and then a message coming up stating that there was a problem with the "ntdll.dll" file.
I even located a copy to download, placed that in the WindowsSystem32 folder and each time I continue to attempt to launch this application, it partially starts up, then hangs and then gives me the error message.
Is there something I am not doing correctly? Any suggestions? It had been working just fine for the past year or so and about a month ago, BOOM, this error message came up.
I am Running XP home and has a corrupt ntdll.dll. The person I am helping tried reinstalling wimdows to a different directory to bring the computer up. How to replace the nt.dll file from the initial install.
it all started when i went on my second partition which had windows vista beta 2 installed on it, well, i started fooling around and i messed something up, so, i went back into my partition 1 which had windows xp pro on it, so i went into a program on my computer called partition manager, and i deleted partition number 2, or i think i just formatted it again, not really sure, but, then i started downloading the vista beta again cuz i needed to reinstall, so then after the download finished, i restarted the computer and came across an error, windows boot manager wasnt allowing me to go into my first or 2nd partition, when i tried to go on my first partition with winxp pro, it said that ntldr.exe was corrupt, and when i tried on my 2nd, the one i supposedly formatted or deleted, it said boomgr.exe is corrupt, so what i did was installed windows xp 64 bit edition, but i am having problems booting into that as well because my monitor is blank and all it says is output signal out of range change to 1280 x 1024, so im running 64 bit edition in safe mode right now, but what i need help is booting into my winxp pro partition
Today while booting up my computer I was came across a serious problem. Each time my computer begins to boot up It comes to a black screen saying: Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:system32driverspci.sys I have no idea how this problem occured. My computer has been running fine and this is the first time ive ever encountered a problem like this. Problem is after I hit R to repair and it goes to the black screen with just C prompt

I am running a dell Dimension 4600 that came with windows XP installed from the begining. XP worked fine with no problems at all. All this changed however when i installed Windows 2000 prfessional. It was installed on the same hard drive and on the same partition to XP. Windows 2000 runs without any problems but now i want to remove it. Windows XP now fails to boot if picked from the boot options. Here is the error "Windows 2000 could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: Windowssystem32configsystemd Startup options for windows 2000, press F8.You can attemp to repair this file by starting windows 2000 setup using the original setup floppy disk of CD-Rom. Select `r` at the first screen to repair. "
Win XP Pro, unknown SP. The computer belongs to a friend, Jo. Someone cloned Pat's HDD to an identical HDD, IDE, Western Digital. Upon boot, Jo was greeted with c:windowssystem32configsystem is corrupt. Problem onset after someone the cloning. As far as Jo knows, the source / original HDD was working fine prior to the clone.
I've had the familiar hal.dll missing or corrupt on starting XP SP1 on a mainboard NameMSI KM2M Combo (MS-6738).All I did was to take out the 1 Gig of SDRAM I've used OK for months and fit a new 1 Gig DDR module. A year or two back I had STOP errors through merely changing a RAM module, the simplest upgrade usually, so I kept switching RAM until it went with no STOPs. I resent having to reinstall an OS for a five-minute RAM refit! Obviously the hal error is caused by the new DDR module, since I'm now using the old SDRAM. Is there a way around this apart from the dreaded reinstall of OS? In the rare event the DDR could be faulty does anyone know a non-windows DDR test utility please?
I have an OEM copy of WinXP Pro. I got it in 2002 so long before SP2. Anyways, I'm trying to reinstall Windows due to some problems I'm having and it's saying one of the files on the disk is corrupt. It required me to abort the installation before it even started and I didn't bother to write down what the offending file was because I believed it.I've treated the CD poorly and I wouldn't have been surprised if the drive couldn't read it at all. Basically I'm wondering if I have any options for getting a new CD cheaply since I already own one or if I just need to go buy a new copy of Windows XP? Thanks.
I was smart enough to execute a file i THOUGHT was a .jpg, but it was in fact a shortcut (lnk).The file executed a large amount of commands in dos, and it took me about 1.5 seconds to close the program. I later found out that this "virus" was designed to delete system files from my system32-folder I don't know how much damage the execution did to my computer, but here's my question Is it possible to check if my version of WinXP is still "intact" or corrupt, if any important files really were deleted (without in fact rebooting)? I just want to find out if it is safe to reboot, so I don't need to backup my files and reinstall. I think win982000 had some kind of Systemcheck-tool, but I haven't heard of such a tool in WinXP
when accessing any application or programme from my hard drive I get the following error message "The file or directory c: is corrupt and unreadable. Please run chkdsk utility." I then click to get rid of the error message and the utility works fine. I have run chkdsk several times but it does not shift this error message.
I restarted my computer today and right after it started booting from my C: drive, an error came up that said something like "Windows cannot find the file C:windowssystem32tfs.sys because it is missing or corrupted." It suggests that I use the recovery disk to fix it, but I don't have the recovery disk, so I'm kind of in trouble. Luckily, I had some Linux LiveCDs laying around, so I used one to boot up my system.I think that this might have something to do with me trying to change my boot screen, but I didn't mess with that particular file, so I'm not sure. Also, I haven't done anything to the RAM lately.
Minutes ago I attempted to copy my HDD to another HDD. And I got this message: "Could not copy the file NxFsMon." It IS an XP system driver.Now, I don't know for a fact that this file is corrupt. But let's assume that it is. In which case deleting it and replacing it would, one would think, be a logical approach to the problem. (I fear such an assumption does not always apply in dealing with computers.). Assuming, of course, the file is on the CD. But it's in System32, so would that not be a fair assumption?If the file is corrupt, then there's an XP Repair install or a clean install option. But tell me, could not a copy of the file be taken from the XP CD and used to replace the same file on the HDD. It would seem a quick and much easier solutionthan a repair or clean install.
My PC always reboot... anyway, when trying to reformat or to repair, this error found "INF file txtsetup.sif is corrrupt or missing, status 4096. Setup cannot continue.Press any key to exit." is this a virus? im using OS (windows xp sp2). Is there a way to retrieve my files using repair? because i have a lot of files there.
my existing W2K Pro has become corrupt and needs to be reinstalled. I have the original disk but I use the 4-floppy boot set instead. Tried to do reinstall without fdisking first and all that resulted was a blue screen. Should I clean-up the drive completely first with an fdisk then do a reinstall? If yes, what would be the best way to initiate the fdisk procedure?
This is not your typical Hal.dll file is missing or corrupt. I've tried all the fixes, and am getting nowhere. This is a Windows XP Pro install.I tried chkdsk /R in the Windows XP Recovery Console first, and while it did complete, it reported that "the disk contains one or more unrecoverable problems." I also should note that Recovery Console did not ask me to identify the windows install, nor did it ask me to enter the Administrator password.Next, I tried bootcfg /rebuild and got "Error: failed to successfully scan disks for windows installations. This error may be caused by a corrut file system, which could prevent bootcfg from scanning.Use chkdsk to detact any errors."
