Hello,

May have posted my question to the wrong area before or
now, but this is a puzzle and I could use an expert.

Four failed installs of a Creative Audigy 2ZS sound card
has really screwed up my OS or Registry or both.

XP will ONLY load fully if I run ChkDsk c: /F(ix) on each
startup. Otherwise the boot process gets to the black
screen with the XP colored flag logo and then simply
starts rebooting all over again. BUT, it doesn't just
reboot, it acts as if the power was turned off and then
goes to a check disk. THEN it loads fully. Weird????

In my start up list is an entry I'm not familiar with nor
have I seen it on any other system that I use at work:

KERNEL/FAULT/CHeck - %systemroot%\System32\dumprep 0 -k -
HKEY_LM\RUN

What is this and why is it in my start up list? Hope
someone can shed some light. Thanks.

Thanks Wes,

I have tried the settings you have mentioned and I'll let
you know if it improves the weird boot up process I'm
experiencing with chkdsk being necessary to load the OS.

I have posted this in a slightly different form in
another forum which I see that you respond to. Thanks
again.

The fix for turning off Dumprep.exe did not work. I
restarted the computer, it got to the Windows XP Home
progress bar page with the colored flag logo and then
tried to restart. I hit the reboot button and it loaded
to the blue screen check disk, scanned, found no errors
and then loaded the OS and I'm online now with no
apparent problems.

This all seems to be a result of a horrible and failed
install of the SOundblaster I mentioned. I've read
responses from people about failed WinXP Repair
Installs,and I'm not sure about trying that.
What do you think about this? Thanks.

I think you have a shutdown problem. Go to www.aumha.org and find the
section on Shutdown issues and go through those. Your Soundblaster
device driver is very likely not allowing Windows to properly shutdown.
When you reboot, Windows insists on doing a chkdsk because Windows was
not shutdown properly. If you can get this device completely removed,
then you should be able to shutdown properly.

One suggestion more. You can enable nonpresent devices in your device
manager. To see nonpresent devices in Device Manager, open a command prompt:

C:\> set DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
C:\> devmgmt.msc

Then "show hidden" and your nonpresent devices will appear. You can then
delete nonpresent devices like your failed sound card.

To put this environment variable into XP permanently, open System
Control Panel, Advanced tab, Environment Variables button, System Variables:

DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1

Now when you show hidden in device manager, you will see your hidden and
nonpresent devices.

Hi Kent,

This does make some sense to me. I have to tell you
though that when the Audigy install failed, I reinstalled
my PCI512 card and the updated XP drivers anyway.

But I'm doing something wrong with command prompt. Don't
use this much. I click Run/cmd/ then typ in c:\> set
DEVMGR . . . this is not recognized. I'm typing too many
characters. I'm still not wise to everything. Please tell
me EXACTLY how to do this.

I did go to device manager and checked Show Hidden . . .
Doesn't seem to be anything unusual in there. My PCI512
and the MIDI/Joystick SBLive! Gameport.

I never had these problems before I tried installing the
Audigy, so I don't think it could be the 512.

I will check your link about shutdown problems and let
you know. Please tell me how to type in the command
prompt correctly. Thanks much.

Kent,

I checked the site you mentioned. Excellent. Then it
dawned on me that this is not a shutdown issue. It's a
start up issue. Windows XP WILL NOT load completely
UNLESS I run a check disk/Fix. Otherwize it gets to a
certain point in the load process and then restarts.
There is something missing from my start up. I can take a
snapshot of what's running at start up, but you can't
show images in here. I'll wait for a reply first. Thanks
again.

If you can't type it, then cut and paste it into the command window.
Ctl-P won't work, you have to right-click and select paste in the
command prompt window.

Your old drivers could still be installed.

Follow my previous advice first and eliminate that possible solution
before you follow this path.

I understand you about cut and paste. I'm saying the
command "DEVMGR_SHOW . . ." pops up an error message
saying "Windows can not find . . ." You've instructed me
to type in: C:\> set DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
C:\> devmgmt.msc

When I type it as you've represented it, I get an error.
If I just paste in from DEVMGR over, I get the error.
That's why I said tell me exactly because I don't use the
command pronmt that often.

So, I click Start/Run then type in (exactly): - - - - - ?

I can open the Device Manager and show hidden devices
though. Is this what you were suggesting?

I really do appreciate your help. I'm on the edge of
total frustration with this, though. Sorry.

DeeAitch.

You have to open a command prompt first. Do not type or
paste the info in the Run box.

To open a command prompt....
Start | Run | Type: cmd | OK |
A window with a black background and a white cursor pops open.
Now enter the info Kent posted.

Exactly so. I'm sorry I didn't explain the difference between Run and
command prompt window. The two commands have to be in the same window
for the environment variable to affect Device Manager.
