windows failed to load critcal driver is missing or corrupt...help!

Question: windows failed to load critcal driver is missing or corrupt...help!

hi, basically I have an Acer Aspire 5738Z notebook it was going a bit slow recentley so I decided to wip it clean and start again, before I even had the chance to think about rebooting it the wholoe thing shutdown and failed to boot. I thought this was my chance to wipe the whole think clean (using Alt+F10, acre Erecovery management) so I started doin it and after 17 long hours of the progress being stuck on 82% I decided it was time to turn of the computer and try it again, which I did and the whole thing was completed fine but when it restarted it came up with the message "windows failed to load a critical driver is missing or corrupt" and attempted to restart and try again only to be greeted with the same message again!

I have no windows 7 DVD but after a few hours of scratching my head I realized that my brother has the exact same laptop so I made a system repair disk from his laptop to use on mine... only to find that "startup repair cannot fix this computer automatically" and now it boots up but gets stuck on the windows logo screen and I've currently been there for almost 3 hours!

Can anyone help me please the laptops only a year old and I can't really afford the cost to get it fixed professionaly any help would be greatky appreciated... Thanks in advance guys!

Scenario:
CMOS battery died. XP got corrupted somehow. I d/l'd Windows 7 Ultimate ISO from MSDN and made a bootable dvd. Installed Windows 7 from the DVD. When I boot up now, I get the following error:

Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing or corrupt.

Status: 0xc0000098
File: Windows\system32\DRIVERS\ql40xx.sys

Can anyone shed some light on how to resolve this?

Thanks,

Answer:Windows failed to load b/c driver is missing or corrupt

: QLA40XX iSCSI Host Bus Adapter
Description: QLogic iSCSI Storport Miniport Driver
Company: QLogic Corporation File size: Various

Go to website of that company and try to download driver.

You may have to use another compter and download to a finger drive etc.
Once you have it, you can boot from the Windows DVD and try to install.

Alternatively, you can go to device manager, under view, check show hidden drivers. If you find one with a yellow marker, you can try to dowload from there.

Answer:windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing or corrupt

I have a few questions:
1. Do you have a repair disc?
2. If not, does the PC have a recovery partition?
3. Can you boot from a live CD (such as Puppy Linux)?
4. What were you doing before the problem started?

Hi everybody,

This is my first post on this forum. I've recently come across a problem with my computer. I'm running Windows Vista 32 bit. I shut the computer down one day, and the next day turning it on I came across this problem.

File: \Windows\System32\Drivers\nqgbwc.sys

Status: 0xc0000225

Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

I have no clue what this means. It said insert windows installation disc and repair computer. I did this, self repair found nothing. I then tried system restore and it could not initialize which is a pain in the ass. My last resort is to reinstall windows vista but I think I'm going to lose everything.

If anyone has any advice or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Kevin

Answer:Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

First see if you can boot into Safemode without it giving you that error. If you can, first try searching for that driver to see if its even in your system32 folder.

I recently just checked my computer and it is not in mine by default, which means its a file relating to a third party program/app that has been installed on your machine. If you can figure out what the abbreviation for NQGBWC is from the list of installed applications on your computer, then you can isolate which program on startup is causing the failure on booting windows due to the missing system file.

As you may have already tried, i cannot simply google search nqgbwc.sys as it gives me just THIS post only. If you cannot find the problem, then the only thing possible from there is to reinstall your OS but of course BACK UP EVERYTHING IMPORTANT FIRST.

I've been getting an error message every time I try to upgrade my Win7 Pro install to Win10. When I researched the issue I discovered that somehow my system partition was only 37MB instead of the usual 100MB that Windows creates when installing. This probably because I cloned the drive from a 1TB mechanical to my current 256GB SSD a year ago.

In any case, I attempted to resize the system partition by using Partition Wizard to first shrink the OS partition, then expand the System partition to fill the extra unallocated space. Everything went smoothly with the resize, but now I can't boot Windows - I just get the error in the title of this thread every time. I knew it probably wasn't a good idea to mess around with the beginning section of the OS partition, and I'm really kicking myself in the pants right now for not doing a disk backup first like I knew I should have.

So far I've only tried the bootrec commands and system repair, but neither have worked. Can anyone provide some additional methods I should try?

Answer:Windows Failed to Load - Winload.exe Corrupt or Missing

I finally got this issue resolved! Not sure what did it other than pure dumb luck. I kept at it with System Repair and the bootrec commands. It was strange that I kept getting different results each time. Sometimes System Repair would crash, sometimes it would say no problems can be resolved, ect. The bootrec commands were the strangest. At the very end when I would run "bootrec /scanos" it said 0 OS detected. For the hell of it I decided to do fixboot, fixmbr and rebuildbcd one more time and it seems to have worked!

My OS is back online and the System partition is a solid 300Mb. Time to do a disk image and then try the Win10 upgrade again!

EDIT: It seems I spoke a little too soon. I can boot in to my OS now and log in, but ONLY when my USB flash drive is connected. It seems that bootrec put the boot configuration on that drive instead of using my System partition on the SSD. When I run bcdedit within windows it says "device partition=I:"

Since I can't run the bootrec commands within Windows, how should I go about changing this? See the attached image for details.

My problem being that when i attempt to boot the vista home premium sp1 system I'm working on i get the following error...status 0xc000000f "windows failed to load because the nls data is missing or corrupt"

Now I've been down all of the standard repair routes and no joy, although i have heard i can possibly take another vista install nls files and copy them to a usb drive for use in the problem machine. This seems to be above my skill set so any assistants you can offer would be warmly accepted.

Answer:Windows failed to load because the nls data is missing or corrupt

Do you have a bootable vista dvd?
if so
1. Put the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.

Well, this one is a doozy. I have installed Vista x64 on a new hardrive after formatting it. Everything runs great until I Windows Update installs Service Pack 1.

I've been getting the same as a previous thread here, Boot Manager Failed to load - ntoskrnl.exe, but I'm able to use Auto Recovery with the Windows CD to get it working again.

Question: is the Service Pack 1 bugged from Microsoft.com? I have installed 3 times to get the same result.

Is there another mirror to get SP1?

Hello,
I've broken my desktop pc and I've tried to sort it but my skills are pretty minimal so it would be great if anyone could give me a bit of advice or point me in the right direction.

Here's a description of what happened:
After using my pc I went to turn it off as normal but I switched off the socket too soon, as the pc hadn't finished shutting down.
When I went to restart it, it seemed to be ok but before it booted up properly i got this message.

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM
You can attempt to repair this file by starting windows setup using the original setup CD-ROM.
select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.

Unfortunately I dont have the original setup CD-ROM, but I do have a copy of windows xp home.
I booted the pc from this disk and I pressed 'r' which took me to the recovery console, I'm well and truly stuck here, I dont know how to operate the recovery console.
Does anyone know how I can repair my pc from here or is there anything else I can do?
Many thanks in advance,

Trying to help out the grandparents, who just returned home from a trip. They tried setting up their computer and it is giving them the message about the file missing or corrupt (something similiar to this- I may have the order wrong: c:\windows\config\system 32)
We printed off the directions from Microsoft for the recovery console. The first two files to copy regarding system and software indicate they "cannot be copied" however, the last three were able to be copied. I stopped my efforts there since the first two didn't work.
I noticed a prior post indicated I could ignore the first two copy commands, is that correct? Or can I try a repair in the reinstall option? What should I try first? Unhooking the printer/speakers? Hardware issue? If that fails, try F8 and use last known configuration? If that works, do I do a system restore? When would I use "safe mode?"

We are at different houses w/o wireless so I am trying to get all info I can before heading back over there. Thank you!

File: windows/system32/Drivers/gjofl.sys

Prior to this, I had received some sort of virus that microsoft security essentials claimed to quarantine. I also ran malware bytes. After the scans, my computer accidentally became unplugged and died (the battery is shot). After trying to restart, I received the error msg.

I have tried booting up in safe mode and it doesn't work.

Hi everyone. I was hoping some of you could help me whit my windows 7 installation problem. Apologies in advance for my english skills. I couldn't find a topic for my problem so I started a new one.
 
I was meddling whit my old Computer and tried to clean install Windows 7 from CD using Sandberg external dvd drive. I set the correct boot order and booted from external device.  Windows files started to normally load files, but after it was finished I got an error message of a missing or corrupted file. I tried to boot the Computer several times and everytime  error message is the same but the missing file is different. I tried multiple boot options and also tried to restart Windows in safe mode. It just says that there is no operating system installed no matter what I do.  I've had some problems whit USB ports on the old Computer before. Could this be causing the problem?
 
Im clueless what to do next. Thanks for help in advance.

Answer:Windows 7 failed to load because a file is missing

Since you attempted a clean install...just use the Windows install disk to delete current existing partitions...then try again.
 
Before attempting an install of Windows...it's basic to ensure that the drive on which Windows will be placed...is without problems.  This can be done by attaching said drive to another system as a secondary...then running the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic.

Hi -

Boot up your system into recovery using the Vista DVD or the recovery partition (most systems = F10 key during boot).

From recovery perform a Windows System Restore; if not able, choose the system repair option.

This means that your windows OS needs to be reinstalled.

Press F8, choose repair my computer and then choose Toshiba HDD Recovery.
Maybe this option is available.

If not then you would need a Windows installation disk?

I have had a Satellite Pro A60 for about 3 years without problems.

Last week the Toshiba in Touch screen developed bleeding vertical lines and I got error message 'Windows XP cannot start because of missing or corrupt driver isapnp.sys'. I have tried using recovery disk but this loads OK but then fails to make any difference. Hard disk appears to work OK as slave to another computer.

Any suggestions wil be much appreciated!

Thanks

Answer:Satellite Pro A60: Windows XP cannot start missing or corrupt driver isapnp.sys

If there is a file that has been corrupt, then using the recovery disk should fix this.
Make sure the whole disk is formatted and try the recovery again.

I have just recently built a new computer due to my old laptop freezing now and then while using Windows 7. After putting together the build I first loaded Windows XP and then shortly there after installed Windows 7 RC1. Trouble was I was getting random BSoDs that related to the memory. So I ran memchk and everything was fine. This lead me to believe a random driver was causing the problem. So instead of trying to figure out which I decided to take an offer from my University that allowed me to install Windows 7 RTM a day early.

First thing I did was burn the ISO to a CD using imgburn at 8x burning speed the verification said it was good. So I go to install from in Windows RC1 and first thing I notice is that the option to format the drive and set up new partitions was missing. So I figured okay, that's MS' way of getting people to upgrade/completely reformat.

So I restart my computer and it loads everything from the CD and looks like Windows installation is about to start when random it stops and goes to a screen that has the following:


Code:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
To fix the problem:

1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer.
2. Choose your language settings and click next.
3. Click "repair your computer
If you do not have this disc contact your system administrator or system manufacturer for assistance.

I am truly at a loss as to what or where to start with this. I don't think it's a faulty hardware as I am able to run XP just fine.

Anyway I am truly perplexed any and all help would be appreciated.


We have seen many problems with burning the ISO to DVD at higher than 2x speed. You will get errors, then somewhere in the install process it will fail.

Re-burn at max 2x speed.
Or, use a 4GB USB memory key, there has been a lot of successful installs this way and it's fast.

I upgraded my Toshiba laptop automatically from 8.1 to 10 when the software came out (months ago) - have had no issues with it.
Then I was using my laptop it flashed blue and turned off. It now comes up with with recovery - your pc/device needs to be repaired (see image) - I'm able to access the recovery settings - have tried refresh, system restore, automatic repair, nothing works and seems to get worse. I've searched for the last day forums and most people seem to have boot/bcd errors and so don't work for this problem. I have a lot of personal files/photos that haven't been backed up for about a month and want to save them! Please help. I've downloaded the Windows 10 iso to a usb - but have only get semi regular access to a Mac so unsure if it's bootable. Any help would be greatly appreciated - sorry if this is the wrong place for the thread.

Answer:Windows recovery, missing/corrupt critical driver error 0xc000000d

First option.
Try to get a live linux boot disk and boot from that to make a backup of the files you need.
(Always have this option open to recover files in cases like these.
You can try elementary OS or Ubuntu :
Download elementary OS
Get Ubuntu | Download | Ubuntu

Once you get them, Follow instruction available, Make that into a USB, boot from it, Live save your files to where you need and then you can proceed with windows error fixing or clean install with out worries.
Tool to make bootable linux usb :
UNetbootin - Homepage and Downloads

You can also use the live disks to replace the missing/ corrupt file inside your windows directory.

I have an Macbook Pro with an Intel processor, which I have partitioned as a dual boot and have Windows 7 Ultimate X64 installed. This setup has ran fine until last week. I installed an old Guitar DVD course, and the default video player was Windows Media Player. For some reason the videos would only play sound but no video. The videos would play fine if I went to the folders and used a different media player, but within the lessons software it by default used Windows Media player. I tried updating all the codecs to play avi files but with no luck. I read where it was a known issue with WMP 12, and rolling back to WMP11 usually solved the issue. I found an older version of WMP 11, but I think it was infected with malware, and I was caught in an infinite boot loop where Windows wouldfind a problem, try to repair it, and couldn't, and reboot only to keep doing that over and over. I ran /fixmbr and /fixboot and managed to get out of the boot loop, but now I keep getting an error "Windows is unable to start due to a missing or corrupt file Windows\SysWOW64\Drivers\SZKG64.sys From researching some it seems to be a driver from an antivirus\spyware program I have installed called StopZilla. I've looked everywhere for some way to get past this but can't seem to find a solution. Also I have ran three different rescue cd's and nothing has shown up. Any advise? Thanks.

After getting my laptop (esystem) back from a charlatan that wanted to charge me 80 quid for getting rid of my bios password, i found the password and found that windows xp had been installed on it! the os was vista, i tried to reinstall vista but to no avail due to a message saying : windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing or corrupt staus 0xc00000e9 file: windows\system32\drivers\acpi.sys
ican't get past this
any help would be appriciated, thanks.
 

Answer:Critical system driver is missing or corrupt staus 0xc00000e9 file: windows\system32\

hm ... I think that is referring to your HDD drivers. If you don't have a drivers disk already, then:

1.) Enter your BIOS
2.) Write down the make and model of your HDD
3.) Download the drivers for your HDD from it's manufacturer's website.
4.) Burn the driver to a disk (a jump drive might work, I can't remember)
5.) Your Windows installation menu should have a "load drivers" option some where.

EDIT: Nice catch, Archean! My tired brain didn't pick-up on that time-saving possibility.

From reading the following post I can tell that I need to uninstall Super Utilities Pro however, I am unable to get past this error message when windows boots up. I downloaded my copy of Windows Vista from my school and so I do not have a boot disk...the files are on the hard drive.

If someone can help, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

I am seeing several of these Warnings in the Event Viewer, Windows System logs. These are Event ID 219, Source Kernel-PnP.

That said, I am not experiencing any crashes, freezes, BSODs, and everything on my PC seems to be functional. So perhaps I can safely ignore these warnings, but I prefer to get to the bottom of something in case it will lead to problems in the future.

I have done some online research on this event, and none of the suggested fixes seem applicable to me. I have been vigilant in keeping all drivers on my machine up to date. I've checked, and there don't seem to be any newer drivers available for any of my hardware. I also have the Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework service set to "automatic" startup.

The details of this event are below.

Any suggested action to remedy my problem? Thanks!

CD is clean and do not have any errors, cant even make new installation. Tested it on other pc there it goes, and tested other win XP Pro version on this PC it stopped. Booting with Kanotix a modified KNOPPIX (bootable Linux live cd) boot without problems, so cd device has no errors, i think.

Hi,

Since the 11/18/2012 event viewer (Event ID 219, Task Category 212) has been posting a warning:

The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device WpdBusEnumRoot\UMB\2&37c186b&0&STORAGE#VOLUME#_??_USBSTOR#DISK&VEN (followed by name of USB device)

It only occurs on start up if I have a USB memory device plugged into a USB port. The USB memory device functions perfectly and the error never occurs when I plug in and out a memory device after boot up.

The error only occurs for memory devices like memory sticks, external USB hard drive does not cause this error.

Checking back to around the 11/18/2012 I see nothing that I have changed/installed that might indicate something that has caused this. No other Windows 7 failures or issues.

Booting a second hard drive with windows 7 on the same system (I have this second installation for testing faults etc), the issue does NOT occur.

From checking forums and searching I have found a few others with this issue and a few articles on its cause

WUDFRd failed to load for the device

Event ID 219 is logged after you install Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

I was just curious as to why it would suddenly start occurring after a particular date when as far as I can tell I have not made any changes to anything around this date.

Also I wondered if there was a fix to stop this, other than removing a memory stick before boot up!

Any thoughts?

Answer:The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device... error

I just started getting this exact same error message logged in Event Viewer when I plug a USB stick into a USB port. It happens with two different sticks from two different manufactures, but it does not happen every time I plug them in. It seems that it may mostly happen the first time I plug a stick in after I have booted up my PC.

Have you been able to find a solution to get these error codes to stop logging?

Full event error: The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device {C5A047D8-CB5B-40E9-B9E3-316AB06B5A18}\WirelessKeyboardFilter`

Driver environment:
Windows 10 x64 desktop
I have a wireless Microsoft mouse
I do not have a Microsoft wireless keyboard
I have the associated transceiver that should work for both (if installed)

This problem started when my Microsoft wireless mouse driver was updated to version 1.0.102.0 (dated 3/16/2016).
This driver update also appears to be responsible for a few other device errors as well:

I believe this new driver assumes you have a wireless keyboard (without checking) and just tries to load a driver for it.

My temporary fix is/was to rollback the driver to the previous Microsoft version 10.0.10586.0 (dated 6/21/2006):

Anyone else run across this condition or have a known solution using the latest driver?

Thanks,

aardvark

Full event error: The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device {C5A047D8-CB5B-40E9-B9E3-316AB06B5A18}\WirelessKeyboardFilter`

Driver environment:
Windows 10 x64 desktop
I have a wireless Microsoft mouse
I do not have a Microsoft wireless keyboard
I have the associated transceiver that should work for both (if installed)

This problem started when my Microsoft wireless mouse driver was updated to version 1.0.102.0 (dated 3/16/2016).
This driver update also appears to be responsible for a few other device errors as well:

I believe this new driver assumes you have a wireless keyboard (without checking) and just tries to load a driver for it.

My temporary fix is/was to rollback the driver to the previous Microsoft version 10.0.10586.0 (dated 6/21/2006):

Anyone else run across this condition or have a known solution using the latest driver?

Thanks,

aardvark

Hi,

I'm been having issues a looong time with different sorts of BSOD's but I've been able to cook it down to this last one after replacing both graphics card and Logitech headset.

Latest error which occuring at least once per day:
The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device SWD\WPDBUSENUM\{01539fd4-4f12-11e4-824c-806e6f6e6963}#00000000007E0000.

This happens very random and I'm really lost here.

Thanks! / Micke

*** Problem has reappeared, so this is NOT a solution ****
It worked for 5 reboots, so strange it reappeared

Been searching for days to find a solution for this problem (including fresh installs of Windows 10 etc), and today accidentally found it ... for my Asus Maximus V111 Formula at least, but it may also work on other motherboards

In BIOS, ensure that the XHCI Hand-Off is set to ENABLED (default is disabled)

I changed this, and now I can boot the system with USB devices inserted, and not get any Kernal-PnP warnings

At Windows 10 startup this Warning appears in my Event Log as Event ID: 219.

The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device SWD\WPDBUSENUM\{a1c931b2-3b00-11e5-9c14-806e6f6e6963}#0000000008100000.

I know why this happens. The device in the message is an internal SATA AHCI hard drive. All AHCI drives, even internal ones, are considered removal or hot swapable. It even causes the safely remove icon to appear sort of like it was a USB drive. It happened on Windows 8.x. Don't remember if it happened on Windows 7. I can't make any changes in my BIOS to make it not hot swapable as there is no option for this drive.

The fix to get rid of the message in W8 was to modify the Service 'Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework' Changing the Startup type from Manual to Automatic fixed the problem. However, on Windows 10 this method does not work.

I can't disable the Service as it's needed for other devices. Just wondering if anyone found a nice clean way to get rid of the warning message like in W8?

Hi,
Hope anyone can help with this?
Acer Aspire 5336 Laptop running Win7 Home Premium OA.
At boot, windows fails to load giving the above error. Tried to restore factory settings but fails at 52% stage with i/o error. BIOS shows SATA Port0 Disk status=frozen.
I have a 'boot any non-loading system to win xp' disc which i tried and loads the 'mini' xp system and Disk Management shows the C: drive as healthy.
Not sure whether this is a case of replacing the hard drive or whether it can be recovered ok...if its a new hard drive i've got more problems as there is no recovery disc!
Any ideas would be most welcome & thanks for looking.
 

Answer:Win7 fails to load - oxc000000f - nls data missing or corrupt

The drive may be good but the Windows 7 files may be corrupt. In any case, you will have to have a way to load Windows 7 again

genuine Vista Ultimate SP2

My wife's laptop is currently suffering from this issue and I am having real trouble solving it. I have googled several pages and tried several methods but sadly nothing is working.

I have even tried downloading a new propsys.dll but don't know how to get it into the system

I can boot to a screen which gives me the logonui.exe failed to load box. tapping it several times and it gets to the login screen. I write the password but the failed to load box appears again several taps and it starts to load but to a black screen. I can start taskmgr via CL+ALT+DEL and open a few programs but I cannot get anything of help to work.

I have run scf \ scannow and got "found corrupt files but unable to fix"

I can't access the log file as it's not found and the browse doesn't work either


I have tried a start up repair , restore (none found) and scanned with malwarebytes in safemode via tskmgr= Mbam.exe

I do not want to do a clean install and I can only wonder if there is a solution or perhaps I need to upgrade to W7 which I would hope would solve the missing propsys issue??

Any assistance most welcome


Richard

Answer:logonui.exe failed to load propsys.dll missing

I'm posting this in the Vista forum because this has never happened with Windows 2000 or XP.

I bought two exact duplicate models of hard disks. I set up Vista Ultimate on one of my systems. I used Acronis True Image 10 to clone the operating disk to the factory-new, never-used, same model disk as a backup drive in the event the first disk failed. I put in the clone to be sure it runs; but, I get the error mentioned in the title of this thread.

Now, if the second disk is supposed to be a clone of the first, why does this happen and how can I fix it?

I'm not married to Acronis for this job so I would use any disk cloning tool that makes a sector-for-sector copy. I use Norton Ghost 2003 for making sector-for-sector raw image (forensic) copies of PATA drives; but, these are SATA drives and Ghost 2003 simply sits there like Tarbaby and he don't say nuttin' to no SATA drive.

2. Tried updating through device manager (scan for hardware changes)
3. Reseating the GPU

Answer:Nvidia driver install failed win 10 corrupt registry? Error 0x800703f1

How, specifically, did you "uninstalled old drivers and other nvidia related software"?

Do you have a System Restore Point that is dated before you started trying to fix the problem?
You might try a System Restore before a reset.

Have you tried to install the newest nVidia driver package, choose custom installation, and check the box for "Perform a clean installation"?

Has anybody been able to fix this warning message that came with W8? Every machine I have running W8.1 gets a couple of these warnings at boot time.

Updating the driver didn't pan out, neither did uninstalling and rebooting (driver installation failed on reboot). Drive was working before.

Resently I  was given an old ''Dell Dimension 2400'' purchased back in 2003, without the origonal xp disk to reformat or restore. I didn't care because I have a ' w7 32 bit ' I was planning on putting on it, if it ran well. I cleaned it up, ran all the updates and put more ram in it.. it ran great...for two weeks. It has both a cd and dvd drives and has a pentium 4 processor.
 
Now when I boot up it says - windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: system 32\drivers\pci.sys - you can attempt to repair this file by starting windows using the original setup cd-rom. select ' r ' at the first screen to start repair.
 
Googling I found that this computer has xp partitioned on the hard drive and it came  two disks called "recovery" and  "resource" to be used when you need to repair or want to restore instead of coming with a wxp disk so one could reformat.
 
Does anyone know how I can fix the missing file issue?
 
So far what I have tried is, I bought a  '' automatic drivers recovery for dell dimension 2400'' disk. It did nothing.

Answer:Missing or corrupt system driver pci.sys

Can you boot into Safe Mode?
 
If you can I would suggest that you run chkdsk /r, this will repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information.
 
Click on Start, click on Run and type cmd in the box and press Enter.  
 
You will see an image similar to the one below.
 

 
Type in or copy and paste chkdsk /r
 
You will get the following message:
 
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process.  Would you like to shcedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts?  (Y/N)
 
Press the Y key, then press Enter
 
Restart your computer to run the scan.  This has five sections and will take some time.  Please don't try to use your computer while this scan is running.
 
 
There is a file titled i386 which contains a copy of the pci.sys file that you can overwrite the corrupted one with.  
 
You will need to go to Start, then click on Run.  Then copy and paste the appropriate command below.
 
 
If this computer does not have SP3  copy and paste this in the Run box, press Enter    copy c:\windows\system32\dllcache\pci.sys c:\windows\system32\drivers
 
When you are asked if you want to overwrite the existing file respond in the affirmative, you should get the message 1 file(s) was copied.

I checked my device manager and it says error 39 (driver is missing or corrupt). I did the troubleshooting and tried unistalling and reinstalling, but it didn't work. Is there anyway to fix my usb ports. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
 

Answer:USB port error (missing or corrupt driver)

Welcome to TSG.

Probably is some way of fixing that, but right now we only know that you have a laptop.

We don't know the make and model
We don''t even know if you run Windows, and if you do what version?

You probably need the motherboard drivers to be loaded, the above info would help in locating them.

With a 2006 Gateway desktop computer running Windows Media Center Edition, with service pack 3 installed, and using just a standard PS/2 wired connected multi-media style keyboard, device manager says that it cannot load my keyboard driver because it is either corrupted or missing. And yes I did try updating the driver as well as uninstall device from within the Device Manager, and then re-booting, but still did not fix this issue. I did find a rather old multi-media keyboard driver at the Gateway site, and downloaded and installed it, but no success. This problem started just after uninstalling Webroot Spy Sweeper program, and I deleted any remaining registry keys with that application's name. That program does uses a key logger spyware option, and so may have modified original keyboard drivers. So where and how can I find basic standard keyboard drivers to install, Microsoft ?

Hello. I am back seeking help for a friend...

She was in a word doc when a blue screen popped up saying something about win32k.sys and dumping memory or files to some disk and then it started counting what it was dumping.

She restarted her PC, but now it just goes to DOS and says there must have been a software change and then asks which mode you want to start in (safe, safe w/networking, etc). It won't start in any mode saying that system32\driver\ntfs.sys is either missing or corrupt and that you need to have the original setup disc and push r. Later it said system32\drivers\isapnp.sys was missing or corrupt and to do the same thing.

Well, she doesn't have the disc. HELP!? Is there any way to fix this w/o the disc? Is all her work lost forever?

Both of us are pretty computer illiterate so dumb down your responses please

Thanks.

Answer:system32\driver\ntfs.sys missing or corrupt

Hi,

I have an old Acer Aspire 5672 WLMi with these specs

Windows Vista Business x86 SP1
Centrino Duo 1.66Ghz
2GB 666 Mhz RAM
Mobility ATI X1600 128MB

The laptop had been experiencing heating problems so I stopped using it for a while.
After I finally decided to clean up the cooling fan months later, it would appear that the OS got corrupted while sitting there...

I'm getting the following error:

File: \Windows\System32\Drivers\pvkqm.sys
Status: 0xc0000098
Info: Windows failed to load because a Critical System Driver is missing, or corrupt.

I know that a recovery disk might do the job, or I could simply reinstall a fresh copy of Vista/Win7.
The problem is, the optical device of this laptop is also broken. I cannot even access a bootable DOS
disk...

Is there any way for me to get around this problem without using a CD/DVD of some sort?

Hello sevenforums, I am greatly needing your assistance. Earlier today I uninstalled avast! antivirus as it was hogging up more RAM that I wanted. After restarting the PC to my dismay it would not boot up, going into a system repair which would then fail.

I looked at the details regarding the failed repair and it said \windows\system32\DRIVERS\ACPI.sys is corrupt

I went into the advanced options and it would not give me a restore point or restore image to use.

I googled for hours regarding this issue and tried several fixes using the command prompt including chkdsk, bootrec, and finally I found this which seemed to pertain to where I was at in regards to fixing this myself:

"If the Bootrec.exe tool cannot locate any missing Windows installations, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it. To do this, type the following commands in the order in which they are presented. Press ENTER after each command.

Bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

Bootrec /rebuildbcd"

-It did find a windows installation when previously it wasn't, I crossed my fingers and restarted and still nothing.

Now when it attempts to boot it does not go into a system repair, instead, it immediately says:
-File: \Windows\system32\DRIVERS\ACPI.sys
Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

It no longer gives me the option to go into system recovery, so I can no longer get into the command prompt, it would never boo... Read more
