ERROR: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device. I'm not sure what is causing this error, but I have tried Windows Updates as well as uninstalling the driving and installing it again, but still no luck. I have even gone as far as "troubleshooting" the problem, but no luck there either. Might anyone have a solution or any solutions to the error mentioned above?
