Plug & Play Configuration error on Startup

Q: Plug & Play Configuration error on Startup

I have a Dell 8250 running XP. I haven't installed anything on my computer lately; however, when I started the computer this morning, I got 3 plug & play configuration error lines followed by the f1 or F12 option.

When I go into my device manager, both the NVIDIA Geforce 4 MX420 display adaptor and the VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller say they cant find enough resources and are giving a code 12 error. Can anyone help me get this straightened out? Liike I said, this started out of the blue, without me installing anything new.

Thanks!

Hello all,

I was wondering if there was any way to solve the Dell Plug & Play Configuration Error on startup. I've read that it has to do with the IRQ, the CMOS battery or maybe even a bad motherboard.

I've got a monitor/color problem. It's tinted green and it's dull. Could this be a symptom?

I'm pretty tech savvy but I don't know much about editing the BIOS.

Does anyone know if this can be fixed? I'm going to reformat the HD anyways. Do you think that will help?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

I resurrected a Dell 8200 and it was working fine until I tried to connect a ViewSonic 23" monitor. Suddenly I got the "plug and play configuration error, strike f1 or f2, etc." Can't make heads or tails out of it so I powered off then back on then hit f12 when the Dell logo came up. I am now at the DOS prompt as I'm sure something can be done from here. Anybody have a recipe I can follow to get this thing booted up? I really need this old machine to work as it is the only computer I have that will talk to my Konica Minolta color laser printer, but that's the subject for another thread.

I cannot download TSG SysInfo on a computer that won't boot.

I'm hoping that I just misunderstood what you typed and you weren't connecting the monitor while the PC was powered ON. If not, lesson learned. Aside from Plug and Play hardware, don't connect/disconnect anything while the PC is powered ON.

With that said, try manually clearing the CMOS. If you need step by step instructions, they should be available on the Dell website.

i've had a heck of a time getting my PC to work properly since i accidently loosened my PCI tray when trying to install a new video card. because of that, my original modem quit working. i've since finally got the video card working and my other modem working by juggling PCI slots and re-installing drivers.

but now every time i start my PC, i get a nagging "plug and play configuration error" that won't let me get into windows until i push f1 or f2. i tried f2 once, but couldn't make heads or tails of the technobabble.

today i tried removing the onboard video card from my system, but now my PC is trying to reinstall it! no means no! aside from that, i'm still getting the erros.

where and how do i fix these errors, and make my PC quit trying to reinstall hardware i don't want it to use? as far as i'm concerned, when i shut something off, my PC should OBEY and not argue with me.

i searched all over to find where i could turn that darned card off as win 98 won't let me remove it in control panel>display (which should LOOK like a control panel and not a toolbox which is why i can never remember what it's called) which also has a second driver for my new video card as i made the mistake of installing the driver before the card the 1st time. maybe THAT is the error, but i can't find anyplace to remove video drivers like i could for modems.

by the way, why won't win 98 let me send a shortcut for my control panel... Read more

A:plug n play confg erro at startup

I would suggest taking a look in the config.sys and autoexec.bat files first ( for your plug n pray configuration error ). Also look in the msconfig as well since there might be something over there as well..
Now when it comes to unknown pci network controller- question: did you check and see if you don't have onboard nic controller ? It's possible that when you "reset" the BIOS , enabled the nic controller as well.
One other thing. Did you look inside the puter and make sure you don't have another nic card?

Hi all, can anyone help- i have the following errors.

1. Bluescreen - details attached

2. I tried to download amd overdrive (stupidly cos i didnt realise it was already part of catalyst cc which is installed). Installation caused the computer to bluescreen and since then it will not boot up unless the boot cd is in. Power on- goes to first screen showing amount of ram, etc...; second screen appears titled hardware configuration (as normal) but instead of moving on to boot windows it just sits there with a flashing cursor. rebooting and sticking the cd in causes it to ask 'boot from cd/dvd?' i just ignore it and then i can get in fine.

Any help mucho appreciated.

I have an older Dell pentium 133 that works perfect except for one thing, every time it boots up I get a plug and play configuration error. I can hit F1 to continue or F2 to enter setup. I have no cards in any ISA slots. the only card in it is a PCI modem, everything else is onboard. I have gone to "device manager" and the only component that it shows to be PNP is the sound card. I have removed it in device manager but Windows reloads it on boot as Sound Blaster 16 PNP. I have no conflicts in any resources and there is no place in CMOS setup that refers to plug and play devices. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks pandg60

have a HP a1710n running windows vista home premium. Occasionally the computer will act like I am plugging in a removable device (with the low-high 2 tone sound indicator) and then unplugging it (again, with the high-low 2 tone sound indication).

I have unplugged all of my USB devices, and only my monitor, keyboard, mouse, and audio system (which does not use USB) are still plugged in. none of these items flicker as though they were being unplugged. I have noticed that the *remove hardware safely* indicator will appear on the quick bar, and when i attempt to see what is being ''plugged in'' it looks like a USB mass storage device, but no such device is currently plugged in. The device page shows its plugged into port_#0008, hub_#0002, which i have NO idea what that means...

This is only a minor annoyance during normal use, but when I am running resource heavy software such as digital editing or games, the frequency of the error increases, and it will cause whatever I am doing to stutter. This not only is very annoying causing hiccups in sound and video pieces i'm creating, but most dreaded of all it is causing lag while playing online games.

This is literally driving me up a wall, and has cost me a keyboard and a decent lamp. Has anyone run into this before?

Hi,

Welcome To TSF.

This is from Microsoft


Quote:




Code 3
The driver for this device might be corrupted, or your system may be running low on memory or other resources. (Code 3)



Recommended resolution


If the driver is corrupted, uninstall the driver and scan for new hardware to install the driver again. To scan for new hardware, click the Action menu in Device Manager, and then select Scan for hardware changes.

If the computer has insufficient memory to run the device, you can close some applications to make memory available. To check memory and system resources, right click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings in Performance field.

You may have to install additional random access memory (RAM). On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.




You should also re-install the sound driver, but do not install drivers that are not for your sound card. If you tell us what make the sound card is or do an EVEREST test and give us the results we can help you further.

This started happening exactly on January 11th, 2014. I should have asked for help earlier, I know, but it hasn't gotten this bad until now. When it first happened, it gave the "Windows must now restart because the DCOM Server Process/Plug and Play terminated unexpectedly" or something along the lines of that every 5 minutes or so, and forcibly restarted my computer. After installing MBAM and running a few quick scans, I cleared all the threats that came up, and the Plug and Play error ceased to exist. However, the DCOM error still popped up every 1-4 hrs (it was very random, and rudely interrupted me in the middle of writing an essay or something.) After a few months, a new error popped up saying "Windows will now restart in 1 minute." It basically had the same effect as the DCOM error. Just today, it has started popping up 5-10 min after boot, and has been VERY annoying. I downloaded Kaspersky's TDSSKiller and scanned my computer, and a suspicious file came up saying "Dcomlaunch". After finding the file location, it was rpcss.dll from the Windows/System32 folder. The only thing I can infer from this is the dll must be corrupted or infected. I don't know what to do with this.  Please help me fix my computer ASAP!

alright well now this is a problem im used to fixing but there is some major problems i cant seem to fix. first i was rather stupid and installed a new op on a OEM dell dimension 8200 desktop. i reinstalled all the drivers and there was no errors running just fine. then almost a month ago i tried to raid a hard drive but the hard drive seemed dammaged and would not partitsion. so i removed it and put back in my older one that im curently using, but it would not boot so i went through the basic steps ive fixed these types of problems all the time but almost nothing worked until i performed a IDE configuration check then it found the hard drive and was able to boot.
but then when i got it to boot all of my system drivers were uninstalled, such as system board and sound card and graphics card along with the intel chipset. i managed to reinstall most of the drivers such as the system board and sound card and of cource graphics card. then i reinsalled my plug n play for my moniter and it works fine. so the comps running fine except that is tells me found new hardware to reinstall (PCI Imput device/Multamedia sound card) these devices. but thats my sound card and graphics card port but there both running so i have no bloody idea how to fix it ive tried every thing i know.

SOMBODY PLZ HELP DELL IS HELL. lol hope i can fix it.

As the title says, I am getting Plug and Play/DCOM error, forces restart. Also I was having random ads pop up but I believe they are being blocked by my adblocker.
At first I was not sure if it was an infection or a corrupt file or maybe miscommunication between my two SSDs.  After looking into it, from other peoples same issue, it looks to be an infection. I am running windows 7.
It seems to happen at random times, sometimes 20 minutes after log on sometimes 4 hours.
I checked other posts to see the same problem, it appears that the solution varies per case, so I figured I should post.
I have Malwarebytes installed, I have used it for a long time now but it shows nothing as far as an infection goes, I have also tried the tdsskiller as it was recommended in other threads but that also yielded no results.
I have a few things going on here but I did my best to make sure my post is to the terms. If I need to add anything else, let me know. Thanks in advance.
I should mention that as of recently, passed few days its only the DCOM error and not the plug and play one, it all started tuesday and the dcom only started maybe around friday.

A:BSOD on boot - Plug and Play detected an error

Remove any USB external drives attached when booting or power them off.

USB devices attached (other than mouse or keyboard) have been known to interfere with XP boot process, as XP recognizes that something is there but cannot account for it because the USB drivers are not yet installed (that's how I think of it).

Same thing can happen with flash drives and card readers, I think.

Once booting is complete, then power the devices on.

My computer keeps giving me an error message that the scanner is not plugged in when I try to scan something (USB). So I unplug it and plug it right back into the same port and it works like normal. Then I'll go to do another scan not one minute later and it give me the same error message. Un-plug and re-plug and it's fine again. Then the error message... you get the idea.

So currently I have my PC connected to the printer with a USB cable and my 10 year old printer works just fine. I'm turning my desktop into a wireless desktop for the time being and going to install a WiFi pci card in the tower. Once I get my computer connected online wireless. So if I take the printer USB cable from the back of the PC tower and plug it into the back of the router will the printer work right away or do I have to setup the printer within the routers 192.... page ? or will I have to install any extra router software programs on the PC to get the printer to work ? I'm just wondering what my steps will be.
 

A:So if I plug my printer to my router will it be plug&play ?

It really depends on your router. Some routers do have that functionality and are "smart" enough to realize what to do with a printer attached via USB ports. Some may require you to configure it on the router's setup, and others may not let you network your printer at all that way. You should probably count yourself lucky if your router does it at all... my router has USB ports, but they're basically only good for charging a phone... they planned a firmware update to do more with them, but it never came through.

The most foolproof way to network a printer is to get a model with an Ethernet port or a Wi-Fi card built into the printer that's just designed for networking. Any computer on the network will then "see" the printer and be able to install drivers for it without the router having to be smart. Failing that, you might have to plug the printer's USB cable into a computer of some kind... but the catch is, it doesn't have to be very powerful or large. A $5 Pi Zero or a $30 "print server" off Newegg would do the job. Basically, any old computer lying around with USB ports could most likely work as a print server if it can be configured with CUPS and the appropriate version of Samba.

Basically, I have a HP Pavilion laptop, only 4 months old, pretty good specs, running on windows vista. At first, it was working like a dream, and I didnt believe what I was hearing about problems with vista. However, recently, I have noticed that anything I plug in2 any of the usb drives (be it ipod, external hard drive, or even a brand new printer) isnt installing. They are recognised alright, but instead of installing automatically, I am prompted for a disc, and even for things which I do have the disc (eg printer), it still does not work. Things that were used before this problem cropped up, eg another ipod, another printer, a mouse, are working fine. I have spoken to HP, Microsoft, the printer manufacturers, tech guys, everyone, and the best advice I got was to backup my data and wipe everything and start again. But seeing as I can't use an external hard drive, this could prove tedious and frustrating. I would be eternally gr8ful to any1 who could offer me anything to help me out of this bind!

Whenever I plug in my Sansa e260, my speaker configuration settings switch from stereo to headphones. This wouldn't be a problem, except for the fact that in headphone output, all bass is zeroed out and treble is maximized. The change happens more or less instantly.

A:speaker configuration changes when I plug in an mp3 player

I have an Audigy SE sound card installed in a Vista 32 bit system and there is no problems with using headphones with it. The EQ (Bass/Treble) does not change using headphones.

Do you have the latest Windows 7 64 bit Creative drivers? If not install them and see what happens. If not you may want to reinstall what you have and see what happens.

Do you have the correct front panel connection to the Audigy SE?

Finally, how do you connect your Sansa E260? Is it connected via USB? and if it is, it is probably setting itself as the default playback device.

My problem is much the same as that of a poster in a previous, now closed, thread.

Unlike the poster in the other thread, my computer is a PC, not a laptop, and I have Windows XP Professional, if that is relevant. Also, when the error message appears, at the same time, a small black box with a toolbar at the very top of it, labeled "Oblivion," appears at the upper-left-hand side of my screen.

Windows 98 hangs on boot screen at plug and play then when you reboot again it take you into config screen. Does this mean that the plug and play is disabled and need to be enabled. How concerned should I be in here I'm afraid I could mess things up. Then it asks for you to choose F10 and select yes to save changes!. OH BOY!
 

A:Plug and Play

d.a.,

You could mess things up, but you won't if you don't mess with what you don't know about.

And if you DO change something and get scared, then DO NOT SAVE. If you exit without saving, then 'No Harm, No Foul'.

At this point, I'm not sure what the problem is, but LOOK through the BIOS...it will be a good learning experience...and when you find the entry that says, "PnP Op/Sys installed" it should say Yes. Win 98 is a PnP Op/Sys.

One unanswered question on my mind is when did this start to happen and what did you do or change JUST BEFORE it began?

I recently put a new 30 Gig harddrive on an old pieced together computer. When I loaded windows on it, it didn't find any PnP devices and said that it was missing drivers and for other devices. I took the same hard drive out and put on another computer and it worked fine and located all my PnP. What's worse is that my old 6 Gig harddrive that i was replacing will not boot up anymore except in safe mode. I tried replacing the motherboard with a new one as well with no success. Same results. A tech said when he looked at it that the IDE cable was not plugged in correctly. He turned it around and said it would be fine. Needless to say, it is not. It now gives a blank black screen. Would windows have installed with the cable in wrong and why did my board recognize it? Any ideas???
 

A:win 98 se and plug and play

Had the cable been in wrong, then no it would not have recognized it, would not have therefore allowed you to install..and then subsequently boot into safe mode...

It appears that either the tech lied because he/she didn't know much or if the tech did put the cable on wrong then I fear for the current state of your sys. board...Most new cable connectors are such that they will only go on one way...Otherwise, they would have to be forced and would break/bend pins...
Was this warranty work? I would contact the manufacturer and the authorized service center manager that sent that tech. regardless of whether your cable is on correctly or not because the simple truth is that it was not repaired and the services were paid for...BOL

Does anyone have any thoughts about the below statement? It's from MS Windows XP Inside Out by Bott, Siechert and Stinson. I'm getting conflicting information. In XP Annoyances by David Karp, it says just the opposite---make sure the BIOS is set to Plug and Play.

Any comments or insight would be greatly appreciated. When in doubt should I enable PNP or not?

"After verifying that you're running the most recent BIOS version, use the BIOS setup program to select the "non-Plug and Play operating system" option. This advice may seem counterintuitive-after all, Windows XP is indeed a Plug and Play operating system. However, this setting was intended for use with earlier Windows versions, and if it's set incorrectly it can prevent the Windows XP boot loader from accessing devices at startup. "

A:Plug and Play

Chances are it will make no difference. XP overrides many BIOS settings, IRQ's, and memory resource assignments.

I would tend to think that setting Plug and Play active would prevent conflicts between what resources were assigned if the BIOS' assignments differed from XP's preferences.

If there is ever a booting problem such as he described, just enter BIOS setup and try it the other way .

This is an update to my last post, since then, the system crashed and have only just got back on line.
I have an IBM Thinkpad 240, model 2609-21U with Windows ME and am using a Micro Solutions Backpack bantam CD ROM external drive model 181100, parallel port connection.
Some months ago I attempted to load Office XP, this did not fully install and "unrolled" itself. This action somehow corrupted the registry and would not reboot even into 'safe mode.'
I finally got into DOS and ran scanreg. Then I ran configsafe, this has got the machine running but will not read the parallel printer port LPT1, USB or the IR ports. All else seems OK.
When I reload the backpack driver, it loaded in the control panel under a SCSI device manager with a conflict, when I rebooted using the 'safe mode', the control panel seems correct, but then I am in 'safe' mode and cannot access the CD-ROM.
At the moment the backpack driver loads into it's own folder in device manager, not under cd-drives, there is no cd-drive folder.
When I try to print, the paper keeps feeding through the printer continuously without printing.
The only conflicts I can find are :-
IRQ Holder for PCI Steering Device ID PCI\IRQ Holder\60 error code 22
I was also getting :-

When I was installing Windows XP SP3 on this computer, I received a notice that the installer couldn't find a specific file, but I was able to skip over it and resume installation. I received this notice when I installed Windows on another machine but this time looked it up and was able to find the file on the CD (don't remember the file name...).

On the first computer, it seems like a lot of plug and play functionality doesn't work...specifically when I hook up my Creative Zen (MP3 player) or even Blackberry. I am unable to transfer files to or from these devices through Explorer like I can the other computer in which I did a thorough installation of Windows. I am also unable to update Windows Media Player, which could or could not be related.

Is it possible the file I skipped over is what's causing this issue? Is there any way I can repair Windows or do I have to re-install?

A:Plug And Play BIOS

If your motherboard and BIOS are up-to-date, than it probably is PnP compatable. Check to make sure the USB2 card is PnP, because sometimes it is the hardware.

If that is not the problem, download the newest driver for the USB card. If the newest doesnt work, try an older one.

That's all I can say here because I don't own a USB2 card...

Hi guys I'm hoping you can help me.

I am operating on Windows XP Proffessional and recently my computer would only get as far as the blue welcome screen.

I was advised to go msconfig and go through the startup services to find out which one was causing the problem.

I discovered that the only way to get my computer to load up properly was to untick plug and play.

However by doing this I have now lost sound on my pc and my printer which is plugged via a usb. Also my pc does not recognise any usb devices.

Any ideas on how i can either fix these problems?

Many thanks

A:plug and play not working

The Plug and Play service is responsible for loading device drivers so it's probably a bad or incompatible third-party driver that's actually causing Windows to freeze at the Welcome screen, not the Plug and Play service itself. By disabling plug and play you are effectively preventing drivers from loading (including the bad driver) which is why Windows is then able to start.

If Windows is able to start up in safe mode but not normal mode, that's a further indication that it's a most likely a third-party driver problem. Most often it will be a driver that you have very recently installed (and remember, most third-party firewalls and antivirus applications also install drivers). If you can remember the last driver you installed, uninstall it then try restarting Windows normally.

Hello all,
Could I please trouble the experts here for some advice, I'm at my wit's end!
Thank you in advance for your time and help!

The issue:
Portable USB devices (have tried with three different pen-drives, and an iriver mp3 players) will plug in, and light up as 'connected', and their drive letter will become visible in explorer, but they are inaccessible. Explorer will look as if its loading (and the device's 'busy' signal will usually come up), but eventually nothing will appear, or the window will freeze. Right clicking on the drive is impossible, explorer will simply freeze.

All of the devices work fine on other pcs. Meanwhile, I have other USB devices plugged in such as usb mouse/keyboard, external seagate expansion drive and external usb soundcard/mixer which all work fine, (though the mouse can be slow to respond on startup). It seems to be a a problem only with plug'n'play devices.

On many occasions, the stick will actually work the first ever time its plugged in to this computer, it will install drivers normally, etc. Then once I'm in explorer, usually after loading a few files onto it, the computer will freeze up, and the stick/drive is not accessible any more.

I haven't had this pc long (maybe half a year), and it did used to work fine at first but the problem arose a few months ago.

We updated all of our XP Pro computers here at work with SP2 and have had plug and play driver issues since. We have had a USB drive not be recognized in our systems, but in other system just fine. I extensively tested that and resolved that it was due to the XP installation. Just today I had an Adaptec SCSI adapter card not be recognized by XP, it was plug and play, and the website said XP comes with the driver. I uninstalled SP2 and the device was found right away. Does anyone know anything about this? I am not the one who did the upgrades so I am unsure if the tech who did the upgrade did something weird, or if this is a widely known problem.

The PCs we have are Dell Dimension 4550s. They all run XP Pro with SP2 currently. Can anyone shed some light to this issue?

I'm running on windows XP but have tried it on windows 2000 and it does the same so I know it's not a problem with my machine. It used to work great before!
Please help, I have some very important files on that drive.

Thanks in advance.

So I recently just fixed a BSOD error and haven't had a problem since.
Now I get this message that randomly comes up saying "Windows must now restart because the Plug and Play service terminated unexpectedly." I have no idea where to even start with this.
Just in case I have attached what a BSOD error post would include (the zip folder).
My system specs are down below and all drivers are up to date as far as I know it to be.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

This message that you got only happened once as per the logs... and the precursor to that was the MSI_supercharger......

If the error appears again... then try disabling it and checking

About i week ago I booted my computer and noticed that it was running extremly slow. I opened task manager and found that services.exe was running up my CPU. After going through msconfig and using trial and error, i found that it wouldn't drive it up if i had Plug and Play unchecked.

So my problem is that Plug and Play is causing services.exe to run up to 100% CPU.

I have tried multiple scans and all of which have no affect on the problem.

Help is much appreciated.
