Windows 7 Fails to mount VHD: error message " A virtual disk support provider for the specified file was not found "

Q: Windows 7 Fails to mount VHD: error message " A virtual disk support provider for the specified file was not found "

I've tried frequently documented solution regarding FsDepends where
changing the start reg key from a value of 3 to 0.... doesn't work as this is a common symptom to a different problem.

When using partdisk or the disk management gui I get the error message: "A virtual disk support provider for the specified file was not found"
eg partdisk select vdisk file=c:\my.vdh
There are some statements that some Intel Management Control Software might be knobbing this feature... does anybody know what this installation is doing so that the process can be reversed?
Any other suggestions?
Cheers
Simon

How can I work around the following rror message "cannot copy file. cannot read source file or disk". I'm using Windows XP on a Gateway GT 4016

Get a new disk or provide a whole lot more details about what you're trying to do and what program(s) you are trying to do "it" with.

Hi,

We have a script file that excutes following code snippet:-

var gOledbProvider = "Exoledb.Datasource"
//var gOledbProvider = "MSDAIPP.DSO"

var oCon = CreateCOMObject("ADODB.Connection");
oCon.ConnectionString = sURL;
oCon.Provider = gOledbProvider;
oCon.Open( sURL );

The URL is valid, can be browsed successfully from IE. The last line throws an error for either of the providers. Error is as follows:-

"Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed" Error -2146824582

This piece of code excutes successfully if exchange is hosted on Windows 2008 and application using above code is also hosted on WIndows 2008.

However, if Exchange is hosted on Windows 2003 and application using above code is also hosted on Windows 2008 (64 bit), it fails with above error. Tried with both Office 2003 and Office 2007 in this case.

To add up, this code snippet is in a script file, no IIS required.

A quick solution is really appreciated.

Yesterday when I switch on my computer, it automatic diskcheck on my E disk. I have 3 HDD, which is C: (My main partition, installed Windows on this HDD), D: is for all my game files (Installed games) and E: is for all my music, movies, game installer, software etc.

So back to the point, when I switch on my computer, and get to the "Windows is Starting", and it stuck right there for about 5-10 minutes. Firstly, I have no patient so I restated the computer, and second or third time also have the same problem. So I choose to wait patiently, after 5-10 minutes, it have a black screen for about 1 to a few minutes, then it started the disk check on my E drive.

Once the process started ( I have total 234240 file record as shown on the disk check ) and continue to file record 800, it started to give me message stated "File record segment 800 is unreadable, File record segment 801 is unreadable" and so on, and sometimes it continue to go smoothly without the message, but not long or sooner it will appear again. Almost the whole process I get these message which worried me, and I wonder if my hard disk is failing badly and unable to recover.
It continues to finish the process and attempt to fix the bad sector. And after that it successfully log onto Windows, so I can use it normally again.

But I notice my E: HDD cannot access and the "My Computer" screen is loading very slow, and sometimes goes unrespond. One thing very weird is that after I few hours ... Read more

A:Hard disk is failing? Error message"File record segment is unreadable"

The "File record segment xxx is unreadable" error is an indication of failing hard drive. You should backup the data from this drive before it's too late.

Next, run some diagnostic testing on the failing hard drive; most HDD manufacturers have the diagnostic software available from their website. Software from Seagate will work with most brand.

If this drive would be mine, I'd just get a new one, the drive certainly will not get better...

Hi there!
First of all thanks for the great toturial and the forum.

I tried to do the in-place upgrade from Windows 10 (build 1607) in order to "repair" my system (there are some quirks I want to get rid off) using a freshly created USB (as per description), but it fails with the message "make sure that there is enough disk space available in your PC" (rough translation from german; see attached screenshot) without any further information.

It then automatically cycles back to the question on how to install (i.e. with keeping data and apps or without) and then back into the above mentioned error message.


This is what I already tried or made sure of prerequisites needed:
I have made sure that there is definitely enough disk space available.My C: partition (where windows resides on) is 106 GB large and has currently over 58 GB of free space available.The system partition that is supposed to be 350 MB is still 350 MB (I read something about this potentially being reduced to 100 MB by other tools ...).I have deinstalled the Kaspersky anti virus tool (reinstalled it now after several tries with no success).I have disabled (i.e. fully decrypted) the disk encryption bitlocker on all disks.

My partitions (as seen from "Mini Tool Partition Wizard" and "Disk Manager"):
Do you have any ideas on what else could be wrong?
What intrigues me most is the fact that there is no further information in the error message on what or where is missing... Read more

Here is my problem, my wife was trying to download pics from her memory card of her camera (sd card) to my computer so that she could burn the pics to a cd. My computer (Gateway GT5016H) has a slot to insert the memory card into the tower of the computer. She inserted the card, retrieved the pics and proceeded to burn them to a cd. When she was done, she shut down the computer.
Now evertime i start the compuer i get an error message pop up "windows-no disk" "there is no disk in drive. Please insert disk into drive." I also must click cancel multiple time to get rid of the error message. Gateway tech's could not help resolve the problem and told me to contact the manufacture of the sd card because they believe there is a compatability issue. I have windows XP if you need to know.

Yet from the same partition i'm able to boot into a "dual boot type install" of LUbuntu which im using just fine right now
On my other hard drive with a windows 10 install. check disk reports NO errors

Trying to boot from the windows 7 install dual boot begins booting but almost instantly kicks to an old style loading bar then goes to startup repair
and it fails with the problem being "bad hard drive"

but somehow it LUbuntu has no problem booting when i select to boot from it instead of windows 7
all of my data MUST be intact because otherwise i wouldn't be able to boot at all. and i can see all the files on my drive just fine

When I tried to boot in safe mode. it stopped after a few system files were loaded then went to startup repair. I dont remember the file it stopped at.

Ok, I built a PC a month ago and everything seemed find no problems of any sort. The other night I defragmented my hard drive and shut it down and turned it on today to a memory test and the message "Disk Boot Failure, Insert system Disk and press enter"

The computer has access to the XP pro w/ sp2 disk only as a boot device but it will not recognize it now.

I have set Cd-rom as 1st for boot sequence then hard drive I have no floppy drive and the bios has been configured to know that.

I am not sure if this means anything but in the bios the IDE Channel 0 Master says none and when I try to turn on auto detection it wont detect a hard drive.

The HDD is fully connected and has not been touched since I installed it a month ago.

I have this awful feeling that I fried the HDD when I defragmented it last night.

Any help would be very much appreciated. But please be simple this is my first build and my knowledge at this sort of thing is very very sketchy at best.

Hello, TSG!

Just yesterday I was using the computer normally until I got a Blue Screen. Getting a blue screen is usually something normal that occurs to my every so often, so I didn't mind it and rebooted the computer normally. However, I got two more blue screens within the next hour. The 3rd time rebooting, my computer starts to act strange as if it had a virus. Upon powering up the monitor would just display a black screen with two lines about something --- which I don't remember, sorry --- and stayed like that unless I plugged out the power cord or held on the power button to shut down. Then when after a few tries it boots and displays a message "Floppy Disk Failure" and "Drive 1 not found: Serial ATA, SATA-1" (and the same message for Drives 2 and 3) show up. Also it asks me to continue loading by pressing the F1 Key.

When Windows loads the first time, it displays a message saying a bunch of hardware has just been installed and ready for use. Also, my internal clock resetted itself back to Monday, November 07, 2005 (Which, if I recall, is the date when I got the computer) and my speakers do not work.

TL;DR Version
3 blue screens within a short time
Floppy disk fail
Drivers 1-3 not found: Serial ATA, SATA-1-3

A:Error message "No drives found" on boot up after new build & install

Unplug it from SATA 6 G_2 & plug it into SATA 3G. The Marvell driver / port is pretty much useless anyway.

Bootup & see if that gets you in. If not you can always reverse it.

Hi,

After trying to upgrade to Windows 10 from 8.1 on my Inspiron 7000, my Windows install would freeze during the start up process - the Dell logo would appear and the loading icon would stop. I had Linux installed on a separate partition so I went into the BIOS and moved Ubuntu ahead of Windows - this was the mistake. After exiting, I get the error message "Operation System not found". When I start up, I see the options F2 Setup and F12 Boot Options, however I cannot access either - the text will become bolded to show that I have selected it but I always get brought to the same screen which says "Operation System not found".
Any ideas on how to proceed? I don't mind losing the files and folders on the device, I just want to be able to use the laptop again.

Thanks.

A:"Operation System not found" error message on Inspiron 7000

It looks like the MBR or GPT that tells the BIOS/UEFI where to start booting has been messed up.  If you created restore media before upgrading to Windows 10, I'd use that and start all over.  If not, you can go here to download or order your recovery media.

I'm experiencing real difficulty in trying to delete a sub-Folder from Pictures. No matter what I've done, including taking ownership of it, I am continually getting an error message that says "Item not found" as below;

It continues to show as part of my Admin/Pictures sub-Folder tree, and hasn't budged even after a couple of reboots.

I've also tried to delete it from the thread shown in the panel above, but again without success, and with the same error message.

I just want to be rid of it as it no longer performs has any useful purpose or storage value in Pictures.

I was trying to play Neverwinter Nights 2 on my laptop. The install went fine, but when i tried to play the game i gave me the error message "no direct3d compatible device found". I updated direct X and the driver for the video adapter. My best guess is that i need to get a better graphics card to get it to work. I looked around a little, and from what i hear the best choice for this laptop is to get a Nvidia geforce go 7400. the problem with that however, is that i have yet to find anybody who actually has one. I checked newegg, amazon, ebay, and of course with Nvidia themselves, but the only one i've found is already installed in a laptop.
Specs:
My computer is a dell xps 1210 running windows 7 pro. The processor is a Intel core 2 duo T5600 1.83GHz. The video is onboard (Mobile Intel 945 Express Chip Set Family). It has 2 GB of RAM. Let me know if there is any other information about my specs you need to help me with this. Any help or advice you can offer would be appreciated.
 

A:Error message "no direct3d compatible device found"

Double check your laptop manual but when I checked it, I saw no way to add or change the graphics. You will have to live with what you have.

I finally managed to get my laptop running on Windows 10. All was fine. But then the Windows Upgrade assistant informed me that I'm on an outdated version of Windows 10 and that I should update. Apparently it is pretty massive, so it's treated like an "upgrade".

Well... after 45 minutes of all this "progress" and work, the process simply FAILED. Windows was successful at "restoring the previous version." OK... but... after this, NO INDICATION of what went wrong. Launching the Windows Assistant for updating is all enthusiastic about helping me "update to the latest and most secure version of Windows 10"... with nary a clue that the previous attempt failed.

I'm AGHAST at how incompetent Microsoft has become. This is the absolutely most terrible O/S upgrade experience I've ever had, going from 8.1 to 10 and now 10+. It's atrocious to see so many "hoops" that need to be leaped through without Microsoft taking the initiative to make this process an efficient and productive one. I absolutely CANNOT IMAGINE how anyone who is a novice or with "general" Windows experience could manage this, without resorting to hundreds of dollars in support fees. It's disgusting.

Nevertheless... painful as it is, I'm on Windows 10 and would like to be "more secure" with the latest. Any clue as to what I can do to find out what CHOKED Microsoft on this and how to get over it?

Hi everyone, my first post.

Just bought a used IBM T41 Thinkpad, which I have to say I'm more than satisfied with. Everything seems to be working fine, however I've yet to have it working on wireless lan. The signal is there, with the little ball swinging it's heart out in the icon tray. Problem is, I get this message coming up all the time saying: "No Certificate has been found". I thought at first that it just meant that I needed to put my DSL code in, but it appears that's not enough.

On further checking in the WLAN properties menu there is a certificate listed with the name "C&W HKT Securnet CA Root", with an expiry date 16.10.2010. When I try to uncheck the button that's next to it, it won't allow me.

Does anyone have any solutions for this?

Many thanks.......!

Hi, I am currently based in Germany and cannot work out why I cannot access 2 associated websites:
Virgin Blue Airlines : www.virginblue.com.au
Velocity Rewards (reward program of Virgin Blue Airlines): velocityrewards.com.au

Error message always received when I try to get onto the above 2 sites:
?DNS error occurred. Server cannot be found. The link may be broken.?

For reasons that I cannot understand, I have never been able to log on to them from my laptop at home in Germany.

However, when using the same laptop in Australia with a different internet service provider, there is no problem with accessing the above sites so I know that I can reach the websites with this laptop.

I have tried many things including calling the airline directly to see if they have an IT help desk or if they are experiencing website problems. No to both. I have tried typing in the addresses directly into the URL field, clicking on through a link etc and nothing works. As far as I can see, the websites aren?t blocked by my antivirus software. I do not have problems accessing any other websites.

Hi there,

Sometimes ISPs block certain sites. It may be worth checking with them to see if there is a block on it for some reason.

You could also try going onto a proxy surf site and accessing it from there incase the site has blocked your IP for some reason.

I have an IBM ThinkPad that has a cdrw/dvd drive. When I use the cdrw/dvd drive for dvds, I get a "0 not found" error message. The dvd does start to run on windows media player (and Interactual DVD player when I try it), but the error message pops up and stops the player. The movie is still showing behind the message box and will resume when I click on the OK in the message box, but just seconds later the error message comes back and stops the movie again. As long as the OK is clicked the movie will play and sound is present.

I can use the cd player without any error messages, but the dvd player always brings up the error message.

Any ideas as to what is going on ????

Other backups have worked OK. I have seen a long thread on the Microsoft site with lots of people saying they have the same intermittent problem, but no solution. Anyone know what causes this?

inserted (32gb stick) (later found out is illegal windows 8 version, that is not removable.) SD-extreme, 32gb. list on toms HW, as winner of all, (and is useless for this app)
so i pull out my very old SD cruiser glide, 32gb (old , slow and not win 8 cert (a good thing)
yes all 32gb extremes are mapped as HDD not removable media and is doomed. (known on all forums)
but same error. (humm) the cruiser shows up i device manager under removable media....btw
but i want to find out why the missing files error.
i have a HDD and SSD, with latter mirrored. both the orig, HDD fails and SSD fails. same way.
i parked the HDD , and run only SSD. but both fail... (my guess is , upgrades 8.0 to windows 8.1 is cause)

now the screen,

my simple questions, how can i find the log of these errors, it's not in event viewer.. oddly
sfc/ scannow works. as does chkdsk, and restore (create) works,. and system is Fast a lightning.
all HP apps works, cept there version of create disk for same reasons,

please help me. thanks for reading.
ps, my HP create recovery now works on the GLIDE. (old very old 32gb stick i had laying about)
so now im thinking HP? blocks the MS create so you will use theirs?

but id love to know this, what files are missing....

How can you have a brand new laptop with an "illegal" 8 ?

You may be right about HP affecting the recovery drive process. Possible they have linked to their own version of recovery drive creator or similar.

Also possible your winre.wim isn't registered.

Hey everybody

A few days ago a friend of mine gave me a notebook, he had no use for anymore. It is a "Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Xi 2528" and he had Windows XP on it. So he gave it to me and I wanted to install Windows 7 on it. When I came to the part of the installation when the system asks to choose a drive to install the OS, there was an error message:

"No drives were found. Click load driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation."
(Or something similar)

It asked me to look for drivers on a floppy disk or to browse on the computer. Anyways I dont have any Floppy disk, nor any CD that came with the notebook (Like a driver CD)
. Is there any way to fix this problem and install W7? Has anyone had the same problem?

Thanks a Lot.

That is not a most welcome message.

I would immediately backup the most important personal data and run the DOS version of Manufacturer's Diagnostic Utility. If it passes without any event reported, fine. But if it finds bad sectors and even if it repairs it, be wary. Not to be taken aback by any catastrophic failure that may occur unannounced, always backup all your personal data and also image your system regularly.

Hi, I'm having some trouble in the GIMP, especially when opening or saving files. Going to the C: drive goes fine, but when I go to a following directory, I get the "No Disk" error message, telling me to insert a disk into "the" drive. Whichever that may be.

If that were all, it wouldn't have been a great deal. But whichever button I press in the error message, it just pops up again. And again, and again, and again... This is seriously bad for one's nerves. Of course, I tried to click very rapidly, and eventually it does stop, if you're lucky enough not to click once too many. Because chances are you click on the save or load dialog, then the message pops up, and you can start all over again! I tell you, it's only a matter of time before I have a mental breakdown.

I was actually uncertain as of in which forum to post, as I suspect this could be a Windows problem as well. You see, whenever I stick a USB stick into my computer, the drive letter assigned to it isn't the next one unused. Instead, it skips one. So perhaps my computer thinks there's one more drive - one without a disk in it - while there really isn't. That's just an idea though.

I'm using Windows XP SP2, GIMP 2.2.10 and GTK 2.8.9. Both are the latest version, and there is no mention of a "No Disk" message in GIMP's Bugzilla.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, of course!

But this time I thought I fixed it but now I get this new error: "A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". After I press Ctrl+Alt+Del it takes me back to the same error massage "A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart". Need help please. This is a Dell Desktop, Windows XP.
Thank you.

Hi All,

I'm having some issues with WinDBG and a crash dump analysis for a Windows Phone 10, so I hope someone could answer this question here.


Background information:
Recently I bought a brand new Lumia 950 XL Dual SIM phone which keeps restarting over and over on a very random basis. After reading several threads it turns out that many people are suffering from the same issue and generic remediation steps are not working
at all. This includes using Windows Device Recovery Tool, turning off certain features such as WiFi & Bluetooth, SD card usage, etc.
After troubleshooting this issue for a while I decided to get on with Field Medic application which clearly indicated a 000000F9 crash. Unfortunately this didn't tell anything too specific so I captured a minidump from the phone and went straight to WinDBG
for further analysis.

Now my issue is that although I can load the crashdump into WinDBG, I'm unable to get the appropriate symbol files as WinDBG is constantly complaining about not finding the required files. I've changed the required sympaths as necessary so I've been trying
to use the official MS online repositories but WinDBG just doesn't want to cooperate and get the files. Unfortunately I couldn't find an offline symbols repository for Windows Phone 10 and therefore I'm stuck with the analysis. The symbols would be required
in order to nail down the root cause making the 0000009F crashes. So far I can only see that this is possibly a driver re... Read more

My computer persistantly displays this error message saying "Windows - No Disk: There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive." When I look at the My Computer screen It shows my floppy drive, my C drive, the unknown Removable Disk Drive (D:), CD drives E and F, my other internal drive (G:), my external (H:), the second partition on my internal drive (I:), a DVD drive (J:), and then finally the second unknown Removable Disk Drive (K:). I have no idea what these Removable disk drives are or how they got here but I think they are causing the problem. Windows thinks there is a disk mounted but there isnt. If it helps the applications I was using at the time of when the incident first began was Azureus, my DVD drive, Divx Player, iTunes, and maybe some more random stuff. This error message pops up whenever I open multiple programs such as iTunes and Azureus. I could REALLY use some help with this as it is starting to become very annoying!

A:Keep getting error message saying "There is no disk in the drive"

right click on my computer then manage. click on disk management and see what it specifies K:\ as. you can right click and goto properties to get a list of drives attached and maybe it'll give you more specs on this removable drive.

is is possible you installed some software from a removable disk (like a usb key) and the software you are running is looking for the source media? it's possible this new drive has nothing to do with the windows error

Your post is confusing. Reads like your device is running an Android OS -- ICS. But, ".exe" files are MS Windows files, not Android. They're generally executables but can also be self-extracting archives Either way, they will do you no good on a machine running Android.

I really hope some one can help me with this. I have tried everything I know. Everytime I go to shut down or even log off, this error pops up. I press return, and it carries on as normal but its just really annoying.

I have tried reinstalling XP service patch 2, scanning for missing windows files, looked at the leven manager but it tells me nothing, looked at task manager nut there are no running applications, tried resitry cleaning tools, disabled erro reporting.....but nothing has worked.

I think...think...this may have happened after a virus was found on my pc and I chose delete but since then, I have deleted the anti virus program and used another one.

Does any one know, how I can either turn off the message or better still track what file its trying to find. Any help would be most appreciaed.

Welcome to SF,

Firewall might be the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone".

A while back I successfully upgraded my Windows 7 to Windows 10, and then reverted back to Windows 7, with no problems. Today, I created a new partition and attempted to do a clean install of Windows 10, using a flash drive. Install failed, with the message "This PC's processor doesn't support a critical feature (NX)." Has the Windows 10 installation changed in the meantime? What's the problem? I checked the BIOS, and could find no mention of NX.

A:Install fails my computer "doesn't support NX"

Use a utility such as CPU-Z to determine the model of your CPU and which features it supports. If it supports NX, then there should be somewhere in BIOS (see CPU features or similar) to enable it. It could be referred as PAE or DEP or other name. Just enable all CPU features to make sure.

EDIT: I just ran it to see about my CPU (Intel Core-i3 3220 3GHz, 3rd generation i3), but these is nowhere clear that is supports NX. Use Aida64 instead. Go to motherboard -> CPUID and you should see all supported functions.

I've seen posts (e.g., this one) about getting the error message "This file is not in a recognizable format" when trying to open files in Excel. Apparently this can occur for various reasons, but an online search didn't turn up an answer for my own situation, so I'm posting the solution I came up with.

In my case, the error message appeared when I installed Excel 2007 on the same machine as Excel 2000 and tried to open 2000. To eliminate the problem:
Close Excel.
Go to Documents and Settings > Application Data > Microsoft > Excel > XLSTART. The folder contains a PERSONAL.XLS and PERSONAL.XLSB file.
Assuming Office 2000 and Office 2007 have been installed in separate directories in Program Files:
- Move the PERSONAL.XLS file to Program Files > Microsoft Office > Office > XLStart
- Move the PERSONAL.XLSB file to Program Files > Microsoft Office 2007 (or however it's named) > Office 12 > XLSTART.
Don't just copy the files--move them. The original folder should be empty.
Restart Excel 2000.

 

A:Solved: Excel error message: "This file is not in a recognizable format"

Thanks for that, but Microsoft recommends you do not have two versions of Office installed on the same computer - then the error would not occur.

There is a box (from MS Edit) with buttons "retry" "cancel" "help". I clicked on help and this information was displayed:

Edit is unable to create or access the specified file, which might be due to the following reasons:

» You may be trying to overwrite a file that is read-only.
» You may be trying to access a file that is locked by another user or program.

All of a sudden I could not find my sent mails in the Sent Items Folder. I looked for help from the forums and got a suggestion to create another profile to test whether I can see my sent mails there. I followed the instructions but there was not enough to lead me through so I don't think I completed creating a profile. Then I got another suggestion to purchase the Registry Booster to clean up my registry. After I did that I was able to see my sent mails again.

However I still continue to see the Outlook Data File Popup with the message "This data file has not been configured. Select an existing file to configure or try the name of a new file to create". After I clicked "OK" then I got another pop up to prompting me to choose a file from the Libraries.Documents directory. I clicked "Cancel" then I got another pop up with "Properities for this data file must be defined prior to use". I clicked "OK" and then I got the Outlook Data File Popup and the same subsequent popups again. After clicking through I was able to start my Outlook but when use the registry Booster to scan I got more error messages. So apparently these errors from Outlook is mucking up my registry. Anyone has any idea about this problem? Please help. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Helen.

A:Outlook 2010 Error message "This data file has not been configured"

Hi Helen,

Firstly, you certainly do not need any registry boosters to solve Outlook data file issues - was this a recommendation made by someone, or was this suggested to you by an automated pop-up? If its the latter, is there any chance you could be infected by some sort of malware?

To solve the Outlook issue, do you know where your Outlook data file is being stored? Can you do a search on your computer for all files with this extension:

.pst

Post back here with your findings. Also, can you tell us about your current system : what anti-virus software are you using. I'm a bit concerned about this Registry Booster : generally speaking, in most cases you really do not need/want to be mucking with the registry at all.

I have gone through the proper installation method by using Driver sweeper/fusion to remove all related AMD components, restarted, then used ccleaner to scan the registry and fixed all found solutions, restarted once again, and then ran the AMD exe file of the latest beta drivers.

I used all default options and locations that the wizards suggests.

It should also be noted that I have been using microsoft's default driver as the previous version of amd drivers (13.4) also gave the same error.

Dear Fellow Members,

It has been some time since I have been able to get back on line, even briefly. Let me begin with a description of the circumstances which prompted this post.

I received a series of 32 .rar downloads (made using a good, high speed connection and under optimal conditions), which contain what I believe is a full DVD (sent as an .iso file) of a cultural event from the person who made the recording, of an event in which he was a participant, and for which he owns the rights. This does not relate to any sort of illegal file sharing.

When I tried to extract the .iso file, the file extracts fully and (apparently) completely (the counter goes up to 100%), but at the end (only after the file has extracted 100%) I consistently received the following WinRAR error message:


"CRC failed in the encrypted file xxx.iso (wrong password?)."


The password was correct (I have had experience that when the password is actually incorrect, the opening sequence will not initiate in the first place); the resulting .iso file (saved because I asked WinRAR to "keep corrupted files") is the full size of the file which was sent. According to what I have been able to read on line (and, again, from past experience), WinRAR should be able to indicate which of the files is corrupt during the extraction process (I have subsequently tested the archives several times in an attempt to find what is wrong), but no problem with any of the files has been i...

CRC error means that the file is unreadable and or corrupted, probably just the last tidbit. You can try to open the ISO file with MagicISO but if Alcohol didn't open it, this probably won't either.

1)I don't know if my Windows XP Home edition is OEM Installed, if it is will this stop me being able to perform the manual steps in the guide?
2)Will following the manual steps to recover route delete any of my personal files/folders/pics?
3)I'm concerned about all my personal files/folders/pics etc being deleted or overwritten, obviously I can't start my laptop to access them now to perform a backup to external hard drive, is there a way of performing a back up before I do any of the manual steps to recover?

Thanks in advance

I'm trying to repair Windows XP on my laptop (because I got the blue screen of death and a bunch of my drivers don't work) by booting it from the original Reinstall Service Pack 1 disk that came with my laptop. I click setup, and then repair, get partway through and get the "files asms needed" message.

I tried this fix, which was posted on one of these forums previously:
"The machine is not communicating with the CD-ROM.
When the message appears, type: Shift+F10 to enter a command session.
Type: regedit.exe at the prompt.
Highlight the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE entry.
Go to the File menu and choose Load Hive.
Then, load %Windir%\System32\Config\System.sav
Give it a short name that you will remember, like "Test".
Then, find this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Test\ControlSet1\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Delete UPPERFILTERS and LOWERFILTERS keys.
Do the same for ControlSet2 and any other numbered ControlSet keys you see.
Exit regedit."
I do the first five steps, no problem. My problem is that when i look for the key, under ControlSet001, there is no such key -- no control or class folders, just a services folder. I make the changes under controlset002 and 006, then exit regedit. The error message remains. I click Ok and nothing happens. I click "cancel" and it gives the setup a fatal error. I've also tried changing the drive to d:/ or e:/, with no luck.

Help! How do I get past this?

I'm using version 2004. A friend sent me two files (generated by someone other than him).
When I tried to open the files in version 04 (which is what I use)... I've got the same error message (drawing file is not valid).

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi LesageJo, and welcome to TSG.

There is no guarantee I will have an answer, but it would help if you told us exactly what software you are using. A version number, without a name doesn't help us much.

HELP!!!

Every time I download a winamp skin from their site it comes up with the error message stated in the subject after it has downloaded 99% of the file!

When downloading, the file is temporarily placed in here:

"C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\6j8XMZO1\filename"

Is it just because I am not logged in as an administrator, or is it something else???

How can I overcome this problem???

Cheers )

A:Error message "Access to the specified device, path, or file is denied" when download

It is indeed probably because you are not logged in as the Admin. When you download skins for Winamp, they self extract and install to the proper directory. Sounds like the skin is coming down OK but when it goes to extract and install, it stops as you don't have access.

Hello,

I've been having this issue for a few months now. I thought my daughter had downloaded a virus because suddenly my sound quit working. All hardware has been inspected and is working fine. The system shows the sound driver installed & up to date. I tried loading new drivers. When I went to open, it gave me the message "Specified module cannot be found". After three downloads and many hours...I gave up.
A few months later, I tried to download a virus program to see if that would fix the issue. Downloaded successfully but when I open it up, I get the same "Specified module cannot be found" message.
Even trying to go into the REGEDIT screen. I go to Run-Regedit- and what I get is, yup! You guessed it! "Specified module cannot be found".
My internet works fine. I can access all of my programs just fine. But if I try to delete/uninstall a program, it tells me that the program is not fully installed or may have already been deleted and to contact my 'support personnel'. ???

This is completely frustrating. If I had an external drive, I would just dl everything on to that and wipe this comp clean. But at this point, I'm afraid I'd just be transferring over another issue. Any help/suggestions please!
I use Safari but still have Internet Explorer as well.

A:Windows XP "Specified Module Cannot Be Found" message for EVERYTHING I look for!

Oh and I also tried to install the XP disk and it tells me it can't find the specified module when I do that!!! ARG!!!!

Does your version of Acrobat reader or pdf reader support the document's format?
Can you attach the pdf file to see or does it contain sensitive data.
Have you googled for this error?

I am experiencing a problem that only recently started occurring. While connected to the internet, it works fine for the first 2.5 hours. After that time my internet connection dies, and when I click on my wireless adaptor utility to check the status I get the following message: "The IPHLPAPI.DLL file cannot start - Check the file to determine the problem." - and can no longer connect to the internet unless I reboot. Each time I do reboot, however, it is fine for another 2.5 hours and once again the internet connection dies.

I have tried removing and reinstalling my network adapter and software (Syntax USB-400), renamed and reinstalled IPHLPAPI.DLL, scanned my system using SpyBot, Ad-Aware and Norton Antivirus (which are all up to date) and found nothing wrong. I have also followed the suggestion in the MS support link article 823256 which pertains to this issue (although the 'symptoms' in this article refers to 'installation of MS broadband networking hardware') but this has not helped either. It reacts as if there is a set timer causing it to crash every 2.5 hours. Otherwise the system functions perfectly. Is there a resolution anyone can think of that I may be overlooking?

Please advise as this issue is becoming very frustrating.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Whenever I try to open one of my "Quark" files, I get the following error message: "Bad File Format [-70]". Does anyone know any tricks on how to recover this file, or is all hope lost in this case? I've done a little research, and the concensus is that this is possibly a serious error message, with little to no hope of recovery. I just wanted to know if anyone else has come across this, and if so, what you did to fix it, if anything. Thanks guys!
