Hi out there, sure could use some advise on these three missing files. I must have deleted them by accident.

When running my MCAFEE first aid. It tells me that these are critical Problems. All three of these files are missing

1. cwbase-sys
2. cwbwdm-sys
3. cwbaudio-bin


Also I am not sure if this is related or not but when I shut down the system and reboot. I get a black screen and up in the Upper left corner it states
" Operating system not found " I have to turn it on and off several times to be able to get it up and running. Kind of scary.

This HP has been quite a workhorse for me I have only replaced the power supply in the time I have had it.

Appreciate someones help on this.

Thanks !

These appear to be files associated with your sound card.
After finding out the above info. I will be better armed to help you with this problem.

Also I am not sure if this is related or not but when I shut down the system and reboot. I get a black screen and up in the Upper left corner it states

Nothing to be scared about, but it is a good time to backup all your important data, could be HDD starting to fail.
Enter the BIOS and set the defaults.
Run Scandisk & Defrag.
Find out what make of HDD you are running, most HDD manufactures offer diagnostic tools on their websites you can run to test your HDD.

To enter the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) & Reset the Defaults:

Turn on the PC and press the F1 key repeatedly at the first logo screen. "Entering Setup" should appear on the screen.

Using the Arrow Keys:

Navigate to the Right to Exit>Down to Set Defaults>Exit Saving Changes

You are still running the factory sound card so go to the Device Manager.
Right Click My Computer>Properties>Device Manager>Go to Sounds>Click the + >Right click and remove the sound devices and reboot the computer and let it reload the drivers from the Driver Cache.

If a window appears stating that it needs help finding particular files, browse to the following pathnames, one at a time, until the file is found:

C:\Windows\inf

C:\Windows\options\cabs

C:\Windows\system

C:\Windows\system32

I appreciate the input, but at this point the computer was exhausted and would not get me beyond the Error message of not finding the Operating System. It just wouldn't boot. So I have opted for a new system. Thanks for the assistance.

Well I guess they are just like everything else, there comes a time to just upgrade to a newer model. :thumbsup:

I guess you have one to experiment with now. :flowers:

Sorry we didn't have a strong enough defibrillator.
Hope you enjoy your new one.
