The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
DMICall

I was reading about another person that had this problem, but the threads ending in 2009 with no real resolution.

I have a Sony laptop VGN-FW300, and it boots to safe mode ok, but it hangs with a blank blue screen after most of the boot process is finished. I checked the system error log and get the first line of this email.

Might have Malware specific to Sony laptops?

Thanks, Steve

Actually, I have solved the problem myself. I did not mention that I was getting past the login screen before getting the blank light blue screen. I ran across an article where the solution was said to be boot into safe mode, run MSCONFIG, disable the Windows Event Collection, and the Windows Event Log in services, (also stop other erroneous start-up programs), then reboot into normal mode, rename the c:\windows\system32\winevt\logs\system.evtx to *.evtxOLD, and then run MSCONFIG again, re-enable the 2 Windows services and it is fixed.

Further, I then tried installing Adobe Acrobat 6.0 again, which is what I was working on when the problem started, it still would not work, so in an effort to get AA6 working I uninstalled it for a 2nd time and had the same light blue screen freeze up until I went through the above example to fix my laptop again using MSCONFIG.
