I have a problem where every time I try to start windows I get an error saying that a critical windows driver is missing... put in a windows disk. It started of with mv61xx.sys which was no problem because that is a marvel raid driver. However the problem did not persist if I pressed escape on the error screen and then just pressed start up windows normally.

However after 2 such boots the drivers for my mouse and keyboard disappeared and I could not get them back. So really it seemed like the drivers where disappearing but I could boot anyway. So I decided to format the HDD and reinstall windows. Everything worked fine for 3 boots and then the same error message keeps popping up.

I am hoping it is a software problem but with the format.... so I am guessing corrupt HDD. Would this be a correct assessment? Or could it be bios, motherboard or something else?

Download a copy of the diagnostic tools for your hard drive from it's manufacturer's website. If you can get into Windows you can run the Windows tool that they have. If not, then you'll have to make a bootable disk to run the tools from - the instructions are commonly on the same page as the tool.

When you formatted and reinstalled the OS, did you reinstall all the drivers for the system? To check, go to Start and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Look for any devices with red x's or yellow !'s. Let us know what you find.

If there are missing drivers, please provide the exact make and model of your system so that we can try to locate the drivers.

Alright heres the f'ed up news. My laptop died, powersupply/battery just stopped working so I managed to get everything up and running after a few days, buy the dvd and when its time to do the disk check my desktop workes fine. I have rebooted the stupid matchine now about 10 times and every single time its a ok. I have no clue of what changed. Disk check obviously shows nothing.

Well thanks for the help

on a side note I saw an article saying that one of the updates to vista was causing drivers to become corrupt. Could it be this that my PC was suffering from and that it downloaded an update when I started up the computer last time?
