Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
When starting my Vista box I get RegisterDeviceNotification Faile: 1066. I get this twice. I've checked the PNP service and it won't start. Checked the System Error Logs -
The Plug and Play service terminated with the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified. and I have a bunch more like it or service didn't start because of dependency services didn't start. I started looking around....and my device manager is completly blank. I'm not sure of what might have caused this. Nothing was installed that I know of. Just booted one morning and walla....things are in disarray.
Somehow you've lost at least one dll file that Vista needs to load. This could be due to a bad sector on your hard drive, or something like a virus might have maliciously removed it.
The first thing I would try is to repair your Vista installation from the install CD. Boot from it, follow the prompts, and it will re-copy all of the essential system files. Reboot after the repair, and anything that was missing should now be there.
In any case, let me know how it goes.
