I have the Zboard Fang. Running WinXP Pro SP2.

Ever since my computer rebooted on its own one time while beta testing a game, now I have a problem. I will list in images to help.

So why, if I uninstall the drivers, and then "rescan" and everything is good, then I reboot, I have to do the same thing again to make it work. I have uninstalled the software all together and reinstalled. The same with the drivers. The same problem happens again.

Have you checked your Event Viewer for errors related to this problem? Go to Start...Run...and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Check both the Application and System log files for errors. If you find any related to the malfunction, double click on them to get the details.

Checked it and all it says is a drive failed to load from BOOT.

I get lots of issues with my USB. Sometimes it will not run at HiSpeed and other times, it will say "This device can run faster if plugged into one of these HI SPeed hubs"....even though its plugged into one of them now.

Ok, I think I might know what is going on and why I have to un-install and reinstall the device.

This is what is in my Event Viewer, under Application -

Windows saved user NAME\NAME registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the user's registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in either the LocalService or NetworkService account.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

(I put the "NAME\NAME" to cover my computer name, etc.)

So, just thinking common sense, my guess is that something is not letting Windows XP "save" the changes in some areas after shutdown or restart. How can I find out what would be causing the problem?

How sure are you that this error is related to the zBoard Fang? This is actually a fairly common error and I generally recommend this free tool as the first step in fixing it: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en

It can also be caused by a program not terminating properly during the shutdown process - so you'd have to look for other information (around the same time) about that (look in the Warnings and Information messages for this).

What was the exact message about a drive failed to boot?

Did you have the USB issues before using the Fang?

Beta software can hose a system faster than malware - it all depends on how it was written. What was the beta that you were using?

Sorry for the long delay. Life issues.

Well, I cleared up a lot of issues in the event log. Now I have no errors in either System or Applications. The Fang board is the only one messing up as per the original post shows the thing doesn't like to come back after a reboot or shutdown. And the weird thing is that when I go to device manager, there are no problems there. (Even under "Hidden"). But here's the kicker. After I installed the Hive repair program from M$, if I do the uninstall, it will now lock up the computer. All but the mouse for some reason. Like a device IRQ conflict even though its on USB. So, for the time being, I unplug the Fang before I reboot or shutdown then plug it back in when I power on the computer. The beta I was doing was for a game and its still in beta and I cannot tell you the name per rules I "signed", sorry.

"Beta" is computerese for "not ready for primetime, if you have problems, don't blame us."
