Is this what you are asking about?

Human Interface Device Access [SP2 Terminology]
HID Input Service [Pre SP2 Terminology]
Service Name HidServ Process Name svchost.exe -k netsvcs
Default Settings XP Home : Disabled XP Pro : Disabled
Microsoft Service Description Enables generic input access to Human Interface Devices (HID), which activates and maintains the use of predefined hot buttons on keyboards, remote controls, and other multimedia devices. If this service is stopped, hot buttons controlled by this service will no longer function. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
Dependencies Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
Real World Description If you have a peripheral that uses the items mentioned in the description above this is what lets it work.
Is this service needed?

Possibly


Recommended Setting:


Manual
Note Updated to reflect SP2 changes.

Do you have XP Pro or XP Home and has it been updated to SP2?

I don't know if either one of you are still having a problem with this, but I've just recently had the same issue and I solved it today. It's a registry key issue. I found the service wasn't working and when i tried to start it, I was getting the "Error 2" message saying the file couldn't be found. There are two registry keys that point to the hidserv.dll file. "HKLM/SYSTEM/CONTROLSET001/SERVICES/HIDserv/Parameters" and "HKLM/SYSTEM/CONTROLSET002/SERVICES/HIDserv/Parameters". Each should contain an "Expandable String Value" (REG_EXPAND_SZ) with the value:

%SystemRoot%\System32\hidserv.dll

I found that out by looking at the same entries on another laptop of mine that could start the HID service. The key entries were missing from the one that wouldn't start the service, but after I added them back in, the service started just fine.

I have xp home, updated to sp2 long time ago.

I put %SystemRoot%\System32\hidserv.dll into "HKLM/SYSTEM/CONTROLSET001/SERVICES/HIDserv/Parameters" as "Expandable String Value".
What is more strange, is that I do not have "HKLM/SYSTEM/CONTROLSET002
at all. I have 001, 003, 004 and current controlSet, but NOT 002 ???

I still get the error 2 message when trying to start HID

Best regards
Steffen
