Problem with hpdskflt.sys
The problem is on the HP Elite Book 8730W with Windows XP pro.
I cannot start it , and to contact you , I use my very old laptop ( with a lot of problems on the screen , ( white bars , and I cannot read what is under that big white bar , not easy ... ) ).
I cannot start the laptop " normally " .
and the ctrl+alt+del does not work .
I had to press the power button on the laptop to shut down .
When I start , I press F8 .
Safe mode does not work .
It goes till hpdskflt.sys , then it freezes there .
Safe mode with prompt :
It goes till hpdskflt.sys , then it freezes there also .
Last known good configuration
does not work either
it goes to windows and windows freezes ( Windows logo screen , the blue bar slides across
) .Browsing Internet for information , I got this :
hpdskflt.sys is a driver
description: HP Disk Filter
file path: C:\Windows\system32\drivers\hpdskflt.sys
product: Mobile Data Protection System
This device is a sensor that monitors movements of
the laptop and reduces system failures caused by accidental drops and shocks .
and it can be triggered by several events ....
could it be a virus ?
before it happened , there were suspicious actions .
what should I do now ?
I cannot launch windows
(and I do not have the XP Pro installation disc
Would you be so kind as to help me with some useful advice so I could try and fix the problem .
Thanks in advance for your time and attention .
P.S. I hope I gave enough details , and sorry for my clumsy English
