There is a program listed in you "Start up" that is causing this. You need to run MSCONFIG and see if you can find which one.

High definition audio controller This device cannot start. (Code 10)


If you run into the error "This device cannot start. Code 10 (often followed by a driver identifier, for example "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver"), here is what it means.

The Windows error "This device cannot start. Code 10 or "This device cannot start. (Code 10)" is a hardware error that most commonly means that you have a bad, missing, or incompatible device driver. So, for example, "This device cannot start. Code 10 in audio driver" means that you have a bad or missing or incompatible driver for your sound card.

The technical explanation for this message, according to Microsoft, is this:

"If the device has a FailReasonString value in its hardware key, that string appears as the error message. The driver or enumerator puts this registry string value there. If there is no FailReasonString in the hardware key, you receive the following error message:

This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

What does that mean in plain English? It means that if the device which is throwing the error has added its own custom error text to your Windows system when the device was installed, then when the device encounters an error, you will see the custom error message specific to that device. But if it doesn't have its own custom error message, then Windows uses its own generic error message for devices, which is "This device cannot start. (Code 10)"

Microsoft recommends that when this happens, you click "Update Driver" to update the drivers for the device. You can also start the Windows troubleshooting wizard by going to the general properties tab of the device, and clicking on "Troubleshoot".

Before doing this, be sure that you have the correct and most up-to-date versions of the driver(s) for that device. You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the device, using the disk which came with it.

Finally, you can go to the website of the device's manufacturer, and check their downloads or support section for current, up-to-date drivers.
Go to Toshiba support site look for Toshiba Satellite A135 drivers, download the one for your windows 32 or 64 bit install, restart and off you go. Regards, Mike

I click on Nitro Pro 8 and it says my computer has been backdated


I Received a Message About Backdating. What Do I Do? If you receive the message below it means that your computer date has been changed to a point in the past. Either the date was set forward and you just fixed it, or it was set correctly and you just moved it back. In both cases you will receive the following message:backdated.png
Express is designed to protect against backdating, as it causes major database integrity errors. If you received the above error, you should:
  • Move the computer date to today's date, or
  • Keep the computer date as today, restore your database to the backup made on what the computer thought was today's date, and re-enter all transactions and changes made in the database between the date that the computer thought was today (probably yesterday or the day before) through current.
For example, if today is August 23 and you discover that the computer thinks it's August 24, you will need to fix the computer date, restore the database to the one made on "August 23," (which is actually August 22) and put in all the transactions that happened between the time the backup was made on August 22 and right now.

Ntdlr error messages


If your pc is showing a error before starting windows it means your system is corrupt or damaged. This can be fixed with chkdsk or a repair windows install or a clean windows install.

That is something you cant prevent from showing. It will always come up when there is a problem with the operateing system.
