Preferred Solution: SFC /SCANNOW shows opencl.dll bad

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hey guys long time lurker here, usually i find solutions on my problem but this time around, i have no idea what to do!

Short story: ran sfc /scannow and got the message "found corrupt files but cannot repair," specifically regarding Opencl.dll. Can i fix this w/o doing a reset?

Long Story (in outline form):

-It worked, and thru the desktop i transferred files from my old HDD to the SSD
-tried to format the HDD thru my computer, did not work, got some error
-proceeded to format the hdd through w10 installation usb - worked
-changed the boot order so SSD load first
-got an error saying no OS is found
-plugged in w10 usb and did "repair my computer" - worked
-able to access desktop, play games, etc.
-decided to run sfc /scannow to be sure, and got that error
-did a disk cleanup and then ran sfc again, still the same

Perhaps not, even if you were to do a clean install at this point - see here: SFC some corrupt files can not be fixed

Normally, folks would advise that the next step is using DISM to repair this problem but, if you check the thread I linked above, you may decide you don't want to reinvent the wheel.

I have Win 10 Pro 64 bit on a Dell Vostro 3460 with Intel Core i7, 8 GB RAM and Crucial 1TB SSD. All Dell diagnostics pass, Windows fully updated.
About 2 weeks ago (April 2016), the Windows Update for Version 1511 finally arrived and it is now at Build 10586.218
A few days (2 or 3) before that, IE 11 and Edge started to misbehave. It's possible that some final pre-upgrade-to-1511 upgrade did this - it is equally possible just a co-incidence.
The symptoms are that IE11 will open up but the address bar does not get populated and after a few seconds, it just disappears again. Edge does similar. When this happens, I sometimes try Firefox but that takes a long time to start - at least it starts. Chrome usually starts within a short time. There is no sure way to get IE and Edge back again. Rebooting sometimes does it. Usuallly, I have to use Turn Windows Features on and off to turn IE 11 off then on again (which given a restart is needed both times is timeconsuming).
I have tried clearing caches, Inetcpl.cpl, in place repair of Windows 10 and sfc /scannow. scannow blames a corrupt opencl.dll according to http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/sfc-scannow-report-opencldll-bad/4209b042-1b7b-4fa2-a720-2c0e489d137b?page=5 which - if that thread is to be believed is something to do with Windows not treating the NVidia driver correctly or vice versa.

I have some problems in my windows. I recently did a sfc/scannow on my laptop and stored the sfcdetails file with it.. The log file showed that the spsys.sys file was corrupted..What does this file exactly does?

how can I repair it or what needs to be done..

Help wanted

Answer:SFC/Scannow shows spsys.sys error

That is an actual system file found in the Path: %SYSTEMROOT%:\WINDOWS\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-s..ive-blackbox-driver_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_656773dac187bca2\

The information is found on several sites usually selling some program however as to where it is located. One site pointing the DLLSuite wanting you to download that to replace the file does have a bit on this file to look over however recommending a good security sweep with possible malware infection as the root cause. Fix spsys.sys error for Windows 7 Enterprise Edition 64-bit | DLLSuite

Despite that being Enterprise edition named there it is also found in the Ultimate edition by simply running the search for the file once you reach the "C:\Windows\winsxs\ " folder where you will find an endless list of AMD64- items. The search in the text box will run the search automatically to display the results.

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to help in advance.

I am having issues on my computer. Within the last week my windows 7 has gone white and not responding to the point I have to cut power to the laptop. Also I have had 2 updates that completely fail to install KB3126587 and KB3080079 for quite some time now. I have ran sfc /scannow several times always with the same result. That there is corrupted files that cannot be fixed. I'll attach the report for it.

I have tried different things to try and resolve my issue I am having to no avail (maybe I'm doing something wrong). All the different fixes I have tried can be found on this MS site.

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2509997

The methods I tried are 1, 3, 4, 5, and an attempt at 2, and 6 before I stopped out of fear of doing something bad to my computer. None of these succeeded. Some things did get fixed but not all (although I'm not quite sure what was fixed). I have searched the forums on here and other sites but figured it would be best to post my own post and not hitch a ride off of someone else's. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I'll do my best to provide further answers if needed.

Things are not going well for me. Multiple system issues are being reported in the Reliability Monitor although these are not obvious while using the OS.

One of the things I have now tried is sfc /scannow from a command prompt in both normal and safe modes. It reports some errors. I'm reviewed the CBS log it writes to (I have not included the entire log, as it is 11MB) and I see countless entries along the lines of the ones below:

Running windows 7 64 bit home premium, my WMP would not sync w/ my mp3 player so I ran the sfc /scannow. It showed that I had a corrupt file. I got the CbsPersist_20151016160319 .

I did have a backup image from a few months ago so I reinstalled that and now the WMP sync is working again but when I ran the SFC/ Scannow it still shows that I have a corrupt file.

The CBS file is 500 mb so can not post it here?? But here are the last few lines if that helps? Could if be something to do with windows 10? I did that downgrade by mistake and quickly realized it was not for myself and upgraded back to win7

sfc /SCANNOW shows no errors
My metro shows the Desktop Tile and the store tile. and the store tile doesn't work. There are no other tiles.
Under another login i have some colored tiles and some with symbols , all are dead/they don't update and the store doesn't work either.

i ran the go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=271185
AppsDiagnostic.diagcab

an it said i needed a microsoft live account and i had corrupt files
is there any command to restore the app files and fix my store and re-install metro?
if sfc /SCANNOW doesn't detect corrupt files then what?
A refresh is out of the question as i am not re-installing all of my desktop apps.
with a clean sfc /scannow there must be a fix.
I already tried this and it fixed the sfc /scannow problems with the command below
DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

is there a variant of the above command to fix Metro?

In the event viewer i do see this error

Unable to start a DCOM Server: Windows.Store as Unavailable/Unavailable. The error:
"2"
Happened while starting this command:
"C:\Windows\System32\WWAHost.exe" -ServerName:Windows.Store
I have read that if i got the store to work it's easy to restore your apps.
I have never purchased any apps i just wanted the default apps back.
My charms still work. Luckily i have enough sense to have a start button alternative!

Imagine No Metro and No Start Button!

Answer:My Metro Has Died.A sfc /SCANNOW shows no errors.see below

Hello DrHaze, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Other than to refresh or reset Windows 8 to fix this, the only other thing that may would be to do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

This is rather annoying, I have been updating a few computers to Windows 10 the last week, with only one computer seeming to have this issue.  The system seems fine, just seems to take a bit longer to load up the keyboard driver at login.  To cover basics I ran sfc /scannow in Admin cmd, only to have the following after Verification completion displayed as results: "Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.  Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log."  by the looks of it, the 'corrupt' files seem to be just 44x44 png files for MicrosoftEdge.  Running DISM also fails with error 6800.  Attaching both log files to this post - any help is appreciative.

Hello, recently I used my SatatoUsb to backup my files from my 1st PC to my 2nd computer, then proceeded to format the 1st PC. After format, I then used SatatoUsb again, took out my hard drive from 1st PC, connected to 2nd PC and "Cut" the files ( I know, dumb.. should've copied ) and pasted into the 1st PC's hard drive.
I double checked on the Hard drive to make sure it sent, it did, so I safely ejected it and inserted it into my
1st PC.

The thing is, I had my PC on sleep before taking the hard drive out... Anyways, I check, the folder properties
shows 0bytes together with no files in the folder that I did a backup on...

After countless attempts using recovery programs and such, they failed to find it. Now when I check the folder,
it says 1 file exists adding up to 51 bytes but nothing is showing in it.

I also tried Chkdsk and SFC/SCANNOW, but SFC/SCANNOW takes only 2 minutes when my hard drive is 223GB.
I believe it could be corrupt but isn't scanning it fully. I also tried scanning it in boot up without any success except it finishing extremely fast and finding nothing.

Here is a sfcdetails.txt attached below, not sure if that helps?

Any help is appreciated, even if you can help me via Teamviewer, pm me. I'd greatly appreciate it. I really want to get my files back, the backed up file is only like 20Gb anyway, and the files I really need from that backup take up like 2GB.

Thank you.

To repair SFC.EXE /SCANNOW errors - repair tcpmon.ini
How? I really don't know - it's most likely through Windows Update
It won't hurt the system to leave the error for now (unless you can't print).
We can come back to this after we fix the BSOD's

So let's see about the BSODs.......

You have OCCT installed - have you run it against your video card yet? If so, what were the results?

The BSOD's hint at (but don't definitely blame) Kaspersky.
Please do the following:

Anti-Virus Removal:
Please do the following:
- download a free antivirus for testing purposes: Free AntiVirus
- uninstall the antivirus software from your system (you can reinstall it, if so desired, when we're done troubleshooting)
- remove any remnants of the antivirus software using one of these free tools: Antivirus Uninstallers
- IMMEDIATELY install and update the free antivirus
- check to see if this fixes the BSOD's
NOTE: NEVER run more than 1 anti-virus, firewall, Internet Security/Security Center application at the same time.


You have a driver (afc.sys) that dates from 2005 - and it's likely to not be compatible with Win7.
It is an Arcsoft ASPI Shell program - and it likely belongs to an older CD/DVD program that you've installed on your system. Uninstall it immediately.

If the above steps don't stop the BSOD's, please zip up and upload any new memory dumps with your next post - and we'll see what we can figure out from there.

I have multiple files that will not update with windows update.

1.) .Net framework 4.5.2 is failing in both windows update & I manually downloaded and it will not install.
a.) When I do a manual install it says the windows installer is not installed correctly.
b.) When I researched this I ended up running sfc/ scannow
i.) I get the message windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
ii.) I'm going to attempt to attach my log from sfc /scannow

2.) Microsoft Silverlight will not install from windows update or manually download install.
3.) The Malicious software removal tool says that it installs fine but when I restart the computer is it in windows update again. This is a never ending cycle. I don't seem to be able to find KB890830 in the installed updated either?

Question: Missing OpenCL.dll

Hi All,
So, I upgraded to Windows 10 a day back using the media creation tool, and the install went fine. After I restarted the PC for the first time, I got an error saying that OpenCL.dll is missing. I searched online forums and it said that it might be due a problem with your graphic drivers. So, I updated the driver with Device Manager, but it said that the driver is upto date. I still get the problem after every restart.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks everyone.

Hello! I work and study in CAE/mathematical modeling field. Now I'm trying to use OpenCL on my laptop. According to all the utilities I've tried I have no OpenCL support, although I know that it should have, at least early versions. E.g. FurMark didn't even recognize my dicrete card. It simply stated that I only have the Intel HD Graphics.GPU Shark says the same.GPU-Z tells me that I have both, but no OpenCL support on either of the devices.At first I could't even start a simple example in OpenCL, because the "Getting started guides usually suggest to look for a cl.h header in your $(AMDAPPSDKROOT) folder". I have that environment variable set to an existing folder, but it contains no libs, headers or anything close to it.I've installed Intel SDK for OpenCL to check the available devices through OpenCL API. It says I can use only CPU. Hardware: AMD Ati Radeon HD 7670m; Intel HD Graphics 4000; Intel Core i5 CPU;BIOS info: InsydeH20 Setup Utility Rev. 3.7; f.12;The device manager recognizes both devices correctly (from the first glance). According to it both devices' drivers are 8.982.10.6000 from AMD.I have been studying this problem for a couple of days already and found only two direct statements that it IS possible to use OpenCL on my Radeon card:https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/system-requirements.html (Call me Mr. BrightSide, but I assume they should have tested it)andhttps://community.amd.com/thread/162244The reasons ...

OpenCL: Parallel programmers' new best friend.

If you are interested at all in multi-core programming, this tool (Open Computing Language) could become the standard for years to come in "what may be the best solution so far to the general problem of parallel programming." It does both task-level and data-level parallelism (aka SIMD) and some parallel-programming languages can't do the latter.

-- Tom
 

Answer:OpenCL: Parallel programmers' new best friend

Some of the parallel processing examples are best described as *way cool* (I don't drag out such language for the average stuff ).

Don't know what Nvidea's plan is with both CUDA and OpenCL support. As both do broadly the same thing why are they pushing their solution so hard? Anyone know any good tutorials for OpenCL (or CUDA for that matter, but there's more out there).

It'd be a shame to write two programs for two different machines.

A programming language: https://www.khronos.org/opencl/





OpenCL defines an application programming interface (API) that allows programs running on the host to launch kernels on the compute devices and manage device memory, which is (at least conceptually) separate from host memory. Programs in the OpenCL language are intended to be compiled at run-time, so that OpenCL-using applications are portable between implementations for various host devices.[12

Nvidia Mulls Over Porting PhysX to OpenCL - X-bit labs

"Nvidia May Allow GPU PhysX to Work on ATI Hardware

Nvidia Corp. said that it could eventually port computing of physics effects created using PhysX middleware to OpenCL application programming interface (API) and capable hardware. This may actually enable acceleration of physics effects processing on graphics chips to work on ATI Radeon hardware.

At present PhysX middle-ware is used to make physics effects on various platforms, including video game consoles and personal computers. In virtually all the cases processing of physics effects is performed on the central processing units ? x86 chips in case of PC, Cell in case of PlayStation 3 or PowerPC in case of Xbox 360 ? however, there are handful of games that can take advantage of physics computing on Nvidia GeForce graphics processing units (GPUs) that support CUDA technology. The latter is virtually Nvidia?s proprietary API and is naturally not supported by chips developed by ATI, graphics business unit of Advanced Micro Devices. Due to such limitations not a lot of game developers are implementing GPU PhysX and enabling acceleration using DirectCompute or OpenCL is one of the best ways to popularize processing of physics effects on graphics processors.

?In the future it is a possibility that we could use OpenCL, but at the moment CUDA works great. [Our GPU] architecture allows for acceleration by other things like OpenCL. Nvidia works very closely wit... Read more

Now you can use OpenCL, CUDA, DirectCompute, Physx (enable it in CP) and nVidia GPU Acceleration for Adobe Flash Player (install new 10.1 beta 2 flash player by adobe)

This inf is optimized for DEV_0A74&SUBSYS_FF401179 g210m.

Other drivers don?t support such protection and the usage of such drivers can cause an higher temperature which could affect the GPU chip?.

Is this the behavior after removing it from the sealed packaging and immediately plugging it into your tablet, or have you done anything with it in between?

One possible explanation is that there is more than 1 partition on the drive and Windows is only seeing the first, 200 MB partition. But it is unlikely to have come from the factory in such a state.

Can you post a screenshot of what the Windows disk management (diskmgmt.msc) shows for allocated space?

Alternatively you can try reformatting it with the official SD card formatter

Today I actually noticed that about 1 hour after being at 100% charge my battery life showed 5:23 remaining. Put down the computer for a bit and came back and then the battery life showed what I'd expect to see, over 11 hrs remaining?! What is causing this behavior? Is it the gpu switching? I want so much to keep this device but the battery life is not even close to advertised. I'm averaging less than 5 hours after receiving mine on day 1. In addition, I have NOT been doing anything other than browsing, video and office... purposefully.

have been seeing this pop up across multiple clients locations, which have nothing in common industry wise.
 
Webroot support so far says its not an issue "according to logs", but I beg to differ that this may be something that has yet to be detected.
 
So far I have deleted it from the users folder and the registry and seems to come back on reboot
webroot detects nothing and neither does malware bytes which is more concerning.

I have a Satellite P205D-S7802. The DVD drive shows as D: and the CD shows as C: Should both be D?
Neither works but the DVD was the last to do so.

If they should both be D: how do I change it?
My system is Vista 32 bit.

Any help is appreciated.

Answer:Satellite P205D-S7802 - DVD drive shows as D: and the CD shows as C

Hi mate

In my Computer you should see the HDD and CD /DVD drive.
Usually the HDD or the partition of the HDD is listed as C and the CD/DVD drive should be listed as D or other letter.

Everything depends on partition created on the HDD because every partition is assigned to an certain letter.

However, the letters can be changed in disk management of Windows OS.
Right click on My Computer -> manage -> disk management
Here you can change the letters.

Regarding the CD/DVD drive:
I recommend removing the CD/DVD drive from the device manager list.
Simple delete it and reboot the unit.
After new reboot, then OS should recognize the ODD again?

Hi guys. I just upgraded my processor to an AMD 8350. It replaced my Phenom. This is the 3rd day the new processor has been in the computer. First two days everything went fine. Ran Prime 95 and IBT to make sure i was up and stable. This morning (3rd day) got up, turned on the computer, and now i have less usable ram than i had last night. No matter how many times i restart, it shows less in windows than what bios shows. It says either 4,6, or 8gb usable ram (it changed just about every time too). I have reseated all the ram. I have moved them around. I have reseated the processor. I have clean installed windows 7 home premium x64. Does anyone have any ideas? This is the first issue with RAM i have ever ran into. Also, when i am in bios, and i go to the RAM settings, everything shows up like it is supposed to. Details, options, timings, etc. Not really sure where to go from here.

Answer:12gb ram shows in bios, only 4,6,or 8 usable shows in windows

In most AMD CPUs, the memory controller is on-die in the CPU. Maybe your FX-8350 is malfunctioning.

Also:

- Do you have the correct voltage for your memory set in BIOS?
- What kind of memory is it? (brand name, model, and speed)
- Have you tried putting the Phenom back in to see if the 12GB memory comes back?

Hi, Recently i've noticed my system is only using 2gb of ram and is running really slowly. I run a Rampage III Motherboard with 6gb of ripjaw ram. However only 2gb of ram is being used for some reason.
I read a bit about going into the bios and looking for a "memory remapping" setting but there was not one.
I also unchecked the box for max memory in msconfig > boot > advanced options.

Any suggestions would be great!

I just reinstalled Windows 7 64bit after a crash. I reconnected my second HDD to the machine where prior to the crash I stored all my photos and music.

The problem is that there appears to be no folders or files visible in the drive, despite it showing over 300GB of used space. See the attached screenshot for a better view of what I am talking about.

Drive F is the first partition on the drive
Drive G is the second partition on the drive

--Both should have a ton of data on them, but I can't see any folders.

Am I missing something stupid? I'm not panicked yet, but drive F is really important to me.

Hi All,

I have an L450-13L which my company supplied to me with 2Gb of RAM, this was about 2 years ago now...
The notebook has been very good but it has been gradually slowing down with the aplications that have been installed and continued operation
so I recently decided to upgrade the RAM.
From web searches I found that I can install 2 RAM cards each a max of 4Gb which is what I have done.

The RAM is IN2V4GNXBFX DDR2 4GB 800Mhz SODIMM

Now what I have noticed is my notebook is a little bit faster but not a great deal

if I open the control panel\system the general information tells me that I still only have 2Gb of RAM
if I open the BIOS it tells me there is 8Gb of RAM

What have I done wrong or what do I need to do to get the RAM working properly

I have tried just putting 1 RAM card in and again control panel\system shows 2Gb and Bios shows 4Gb
I have tried swapping the 2 cards between the slotts

Any help much apriciated

Answer:Satellite L450: RAM Upgrade: BIOS shows 8GB, Win shows 2GB

Hi mate

What chipset do you have?

The notebook with the Mobile Intel(R) GL40 Express Chipset supports max 4GB RAM. This means that you can use 2 x 2GB RAM modules

The notebook with the Mobile Intel(R) GM45 Express Chipset supports 8GB RAM. In such case you can use max 2 x 4GB RAM modules.

Furthermore it would be interesting to know what Win 7 version you use. 32bit recognize max 3.2GB RAM. The 64bit version would recognize the full RAM.

I have a strange problem with this computer running windows vista home premium x64.

If I go to C:\Windows and do a right-click on the "SchCache" folder and select properties,
the size of the folder shows 40.7 GB used.

If I try to open that folder, there is nothing in there. I have "show hidden files and folders" checked
and "hide protected operating system files" unchecked, so it's not a matter of simple hidden files.

Now it gets interesting...if I go back and try right-clicking again on the SchCache folder and select
properties, it no longer shows 40.7 GB used! It says zero bytes!

If I reboot the computer and repeat the whole procedure from the beginning, the folder properties will
return to showing a large number of gigabytes used the first time I select right-click-properties, and
then shows zero afterwards...

Hello and welcome Kishor now I have gut feeling that drive night have been damaged by the sudden power failure it could have affected the platters themselves or the controller unit.
Now I think you need to test the drive using this SeaTools for Windows | Seagate or a purely physical surface test see this Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition. run it and see my pic on how to set that up. It tests the actual surface of the platters and to some extent the ability of the read / write heads.

Answer:Satellite A100-1AI shows CD drive but Device Manager shows DVD drive

Just one question;
Can you read and burn CDs?

Regarding the unknown devices:
These devices are supported only by Vista and therefore there are no drivers for Mass Storage Controller.

Check this:

+This device is likely the Turbo Memory former Robson module.+

Hi there, I'm in the midst of troubleshooting abruptly poor graphics performance on my Y510p and have already posted one subproblem to another thread. This post pertains to the crux of the issue. Starting 2 weeks ago I am getting very poor graphics performance (suddenly unplayable FPS in diablo 3; hearthstone is barely responsive).  I have done the obvious stuff: run applications using high nvidia gpu; set power preference within nvidia control panel to highest performance; updated nvidia drivers; confirmed that application shows up in notification.  I have also tried a clean install of windows 8.1 and, more recently, a onekey recovery followed by manual upgrade to windows 8.1. Recently I have taken to watching both nvida inspector and HWmonitor during my testing to try to understand the problem.  HWmonitor and nvidia inspector show dramatically different things when testing games.  nvidia inspector shows dynamic cpu clock and usage, with clock typically ~900mhz and usage ~50% (usage never hits 100%, even when I'm experiencing poor performance) while HWmonitor shows lower gpu utilization and a stable, unchanging, 405mhz clock. Can anyone help me make sense of this conflicting information? Additional data- My CPU seems to like to run at 3.3ghz when not in use- Shortly after starting a game, it throttles down (event manager says that the clock has been reduced by firmware).  This seems to happen when it hits 80C, which it d... Read more

Answer:HWmonitor shows low gpu clock but nvidia inspector shows high clock?

Sorry you are saying that NVIDIA inspector show dynamic CPU clock and HWMonitor shows GPU clock.
Ideally, you should be looking at same stats in both applications.
 
First, I think you should uninstall NVIDIA inspector and only use HWMonitor. It is sufficient and provides accurate data.
Then, while playing a game take and post a screenshot of what HWMonitor shows, You can log that data to a file and see how high or low the CPU/GPU clock goes.
 
This can related to throttling but only those file data can provide enough proof.
 
Now, check these questions -
1) Have you ever set to lower you clock or show warning when your CPU reaches a specific temp in any application?
2) Are you playing the game on battery or plugged in?
3) Do you have SLI or single GPU? What is the driver version?
4) What is your power setting? Can you check in Advanced power setting about your CPU performance mode?
5) Is your laptop properly ventilated? What precautions are you using to keep it cool?
6) Since when do you own this laptop?
7) Have you messed with the BIOS. Can you check if you see something modified in your BIOS? (That is restricting your CPU)

Ii's probably this. Boot into safe mode (tap F8 on boot up), and set the resolution to 60-65Hz. Then reboot as usual. The new monitor probably cant handle the res it is set at now.

If that doesn't work, come back.

Hello,

I just did a clean install on my laptop after installing a new SSD. I installed the drivers that I had to install manually, and then I did a Windows update for anything else. After getting everything setup I ran my first Windows Experience Index.

Surprising, the graphics score was only 5.0, but I am almost sure it was higher with the factory installation. I am runnng Aero but with most of the visual effects turned off. I viewed the assessment details and it showed this:



If you notice, the DirectX version is 10. But when I run dxdiag the version number in the report is 11. Here is my configuration, and please let me know if more information is needed. Thank you very much.

Answer:DXDiag shows DirectX 11 but Windows Experience Index shows DirectX 10

I believe that WinSAT only test for DirectX 10 and 9, not 11. That's why it only shows DirectX 10. If your card fails to do the DirectX 10 test, then WinSAT will only display DirectX 9. Don't worry about it. If DxDiag shows DirectX 11, then your card can support it.

Here is the fix for sfc /scannow asking for XP Professional CD2. Which as far as I am concerned is just an error on the os creation side of Microsoft as there is NO Win XP Pro CD2. Unless you consider WMediaCenter the second edition of XP Pro. This error is caused by Windows Media Center OS.
This afternoon I searched for the answer and here is what worked for me: EDIT REGISTRY WITH CAUTION< BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN YOU DO
Start, run, regedit, Hkey Local Machine/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Current Version/setup, when opened, look for the last item which is Source Path, open this to edit it and as it was not reading my C: for a repair, I had to redirect the path to D: or whatever letter for the cd drive that has your original os cd, once changed, hit retry and then SFC will read that drive and finish correctly. Leave regedit open so that you can change the letter back to C: or your windows drive for future functions.

Obviously you would not like it to look for a repair in the C: drive as this is where it has found errors, so it is best to direct it to the cd rom original files. And as someone pointed out they copied i386 to C so it could look there, it won't, because sfc is not designed to look to C for repair, it wants the cd rom drive.

I had to assume that sfc is designed that way after looking at alot of computers that had the source path already on C:

Question: sfc /scannow

I want to run sfc /scannow on my XP Pro 64 bit but am told to insert the Service Pack 2 CD-ROM before it will continue.  Just what kind of CD is this and where or how do I get one?   I have the XP Pro 64 bit SP 2 .exe file in a folder on my HDD and have burned it to a CD but the scf utility tells me that is the wrong CD. 

Answer:sfc /scannow

There are a couple different forms of SP2. Microsoft mailed SP2 to registered corporate customers many years ago and I got 2 of them. My guess is that its looking for a target file on that CD and there is a naming mismatch of some kind. For SP2 there is the Microsoft update method as well as the System Admin Network install of SP2, as well as the SP2 CD that Microsoft mailed out to registered corporate customers who requested the CD.It might be a matter of making sure the SP2 file is a specific file name and not a variant such as the Network System Admin SP2 download might be a different named EXE than the service pack 2 exe that came on the CD. Matching the file names might be the fix.Lastly... if this is a bootleg of XP 64bit it could be broken in which it will never find SP2. If this is the case then you need to get a legal copy of XP 64bit off of ebay etc.

Question: Sfc /scannow

On : sfc /scannow, what and when and how do you use this application? Thank you very much. YOYO.

Answer:Sfc /scannow

The System File Checker will compare the file versions of "protected system files" on your system with your original installation media - and will replace those that don't agree with the version on the installation media.This then requires a visit to Windows Update to ensure that you haven't "down-dated" any of the protected system files that were updated by Windows Update.Also, it's not a friendly tool - it won't tell you when it's done and won't suggest anything but to insert your XP CD.It's the step that I take just before recommending a repair install of XP. I haven't found a list of the "protected system files" but suppose that it's easy enough to locate.Remember that the "protected system files" are only a sub-set of "system files" - so that it won't fix all problems. Also, if these files were "protected" in the first place - how did they get changed? (just food for thought).Here's a HowTo about it: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43051/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files/

Please help!... I can't run 'SFC.EXE. /SCANNOW on XP Pro SP3. My AV doesn't find any viral content, and I have never had a problem running before.
Here's what is happening: From 'CMD'- 'SFC.EXE /SCANNOW', progress bar pops up, then a window pops up asking for the disk, install disk and a window keeps popping up with the retry-continue-cancel note. That's it! When I try to cancel, I just keep getting the Yes/No query. Can't get out, unless I restart the pc. When doing this, it takes forever to reboot. The reason I decided to run the 'sfc /scannow' is because when I log on in the morning, all of a sudden some of my desktop icons have lost their 'logo', and I have to go to properties and do the change icon thing. I do have an icon file (ico) in My Documents where I keep them. There are a few other minor system nuances going on, also, from time to time.
Thanks for any help!

Answer:Can't Run SFC /SCANNOW

Lot of places we can go here.

Are you running it from command prompt that you started as "run as administrator"?

In some situations, especially in Windows XP and Windows 2000, you may also need access to your original Windows installation CD or DVD.

Question: sfc /scannow ?

Some time ago while recommending One member to run sfc /scannow
I run it myself.
it told that it found integratiy violation but couln't fix it..
And logs in Windir\logs\CBs\cbs.log
I tried to access it but access was denied..

ok, I got access to it. (not important)

and only error I can see is:

Error CBS Failed to process single phase execution. [HRESULT = 0x800f0816 - CBS_E_DPX_JOB_STATE_SAVED]

any ideas what it is?

Answer:sfc /scannow ?

Try again, it may have found another error, also, it cannot fix all at the same time.

If that does not work, do the repair install,with the windows DVD. That will probalby work.

I'm sorry if I posted this on a wrong part of the forum. I've ran sfc /scannow on Admin's mode in CMD. All it shows is this:

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. Details are included in the CBS.log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log

Answer:sfc /scannow can't fix

Check your HD.
1) Boot DVD, & Press Shift+F10 (for command prompt)
2) Boot DVD, & Command Prompt at Startup (for command prompt)
Open an command prompt.
In the command prompt, type chkdsk C: f/x/r/v and press Enter.

Question: sfc /scannow

A few months agao I had to reinstall windows xp from the Dell disk. Everything is now working perfectly, but on running sfc /scannow i get a message to insert windows installation disk and copy files to dll cache. Is this because these are files taken from the Dell reinstallation disk and not an original xp disk. Do I ignore this problem or I read somewhere that I can reregister the files so that sfc reports no errors, I would appreciate some advice please many thanks

Answer:sfc /scannow

You can ignore the problem, I think it will be because your Dell XP is SP1 and your windows has been updated tp SP2. You can slipstream the SP2 onto a disc if you want.

So I love the sfc /scannow command, but usually when I run it on a computer, it will say it found errors but couldn't fix them, probably because the computer is using them. So I tried on one computer to boot into the recovery console and run the command, but it just says a repair is already pending and the computer needs to reboot.

How can I use the sfc /scannow command to fix Windows files without having to do a repair install?

Thanks

Answer:Need sfc /scannow Help

Welcome
The SFC command is limited to what it can fix. If errors are found and not fixed, run the SFC several more times. If they are not repaired SFC cannot fix them.

Hi Jscolt, Welcome to SF,

To see those the best way is to run from command prompt

Start > cmd > Right Click > Run as administrator
There type in SFC/ SCANNOW
After the scan it should show the Log

Hopr this helps

I try to run sfc /scannow and I get the instruction to insert a Win XP Service Pack 2 cd into the drive. I do this. Then I get the window that says the wrong cd is in the drive. No matter how many times I put the requested cd in the drive I always get this message.
I checked error logs and got this message:
The system file c:\windows\system32\adsiis.dll could not be copied into the DLL cache. The specific error code is 0x000004c7 [The operation was canceled by the user.] This file is necessary to maintain system stability.

I have been trying to get to the bottom of this problem for a long time. I did a recent fresh reinstall of WinXP in my computer, and sfc /scannow still will not run.

Question: SFC /scannow

Just left the above running while I took a break, got back and it must have finished.

Which event log will I find the result in?

Also, I went into command prompt as admin, but it said it didn't recognise the SFC command. I ran it from Run OK though. Is that right?
