I seem to have a problem with NVIDIA NDIS IO Control Driver failing to start at boot up. I've not noticed as it hasn't done harm to the computer yet, but I noticed this error when I check on the event viewer. Now I've tried searching the internet for a possible solution but so far have not found one.

The description says The NVIDIA NDIS IO Control Driver failed to start due to the following error: The system could not find the file specified. I've check the file location in C:\WINDOWS\system32 and it is there but how does it not start? :thumbsup:


The Help and Support Center has this as I check on a possible solution, but would like some sound advice from here. I'd be grateful for it.


Details
Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 7000
Source: Service Control Manager
Version: 5.2
Symbolic Name: EVENT_SERVICE_START_FAILED
Message: The %1 service failed to start due to the following error:
%2

Explanation
Service Control Manager (SCM) could not start the specified service, probably because the service is not configured correctly.


User Action
Do one or all of the following:

Review the error information displayed in the message.
Verify that the service password has not expired.
Verify that the service is in the correct location.
Verify that the service is not infected with a virus.
To display the WIN32_EXIT_CODE error that SCM encountered when trying to start the program, at the command prompt, type
sc query service name
The information displayed can help you troubleshoot possible causes for the error.

If the WIN32_EXIT_CODE is zero, then SCM did not attempt to start the service because the error was detected first.

How often does the error occur? If just on bootup - I'd suggest leaving it alone (since it's not hurting anything). Otherwise, I'd suggest downloading a fresh copy of the nVidia chipset drivers to see if that cures the problem.

I noticed it was at every boot up as that was what the event viewer shows and that got me wondering why. I'll try doing that but somehow don't know which driver chipset to download? NVIDIA GeForce2 which is the display adapter driver or the nForce which is the audio driver? Please advise.

What's the make and model of your system? If it's a custom build, what's the make and model of your motherboard?

Thanks for your suggestion and I've checked the services, all were in order. Although it hasn't solved the problem. I'm thinking of ignoring it if it doesn't have any adverse effect.
