I am running a laptop with Windows 8.1. Every time I start the laptop up, I get an error message pop up which says RunDDL error and the specified module windows\SysWOW64\xpvga.dll has not been found.


I have tried Googling this file name and got nowhere. 


Does anyone know what this message means and more importantly, how to stop it from keep coming up?


Thanks for your help in advance.

Well SysWOWell SysWOW64 refures to Windows 32-bit on Windows 64-bit which allows you to run 32bit application on a 64bit system. I haven't seen an xpvga.dll  in windows 8.1 before and I have found it on http://www.dll-files.com/ so, quickest fixis to back up your data and re install window 8.1

You were given good advice at Windows Eight Forums, why haven't you done what they suggested?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
