The problem could be registry issues. Did you made any changes with the hardware or drivers recently? like did you remove or delete any unknown files from your computer? or did you install any new hardware? First restart your computer and try to boot into "Last Known configuration" by pressing F8 while it boots up (keep tapping the F8 key on the keyboard once you it's started restarting) and select "Last Known Configuration" using the up-down-left-right arrow on the keyboard, and press "enter" to proceed. That will revert the changes you've made recently and your problem will be fixed.

If you've just installed a driver or updated any drivers, run the "Roll back" by right-clicking the device name in the Device Manager.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Seems like the registry for your Dvd-Rom is corrupted. Try disabling and uninstalling the driver, then enable and wait for windows to clean install its driver.

Code 19


Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. To fix this problem you should uninstall and then reinstall the hardware device. (Code 19)

Try these options:
•Click Uninstall, and then click Scan for hardware changes to load a usable driver.
•Restart the computer in Safe Mode, and then select Last Known Good Configuration. This rolls back to the most recent successful registry configuration.

Hope it helps.

Code 19 DVD DX not working


  • Open up your Device Manager where you'll see your DVD DX Hardware Device that no longer works correctly. Click it, and then click uninstall. Once uninstalled you can reboot, or click 'scan for new hardware'. Either way Windows will find your Device again and reinstall the driver and probably fix the registry entries.
  • If that does not work, reboot your computer holding down F8 and select 'Load Last Known Good Configuration' before booting into Windows again. It'll restore your settings back when it didn't detect any problems.

Code 19 Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. To fix this problem you can first try running a Troubleshooting Wizard. If that does not work, you should uninstall and then reinstall the hardware device. (Code 19) Recommended resolutions

A registry problem was detected.

This can occur when more than one service is defined for a device, if there is a failure opening the service subkey, or if the driver name cannot be obtained from the service subkey. Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

Uninstall and reinstall the driver

Uninstall the driver from Device Manager and scan for new hardware to install the driver again.

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. However, sometimes, it will open the New Hardware Wizard which may ask for the driver. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.
  1. On the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Uninstall. Follow the instructions.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. Open Device Manager, click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes. Follow the instructions.
