error code initilization failure

Q: error code initilization failure

I am getting this error code 5D0030009

device initilization failure unable to to access USB

I am running Windows XP on a Dell E521 PC with two gigs of RAM

I cannot get my PC to recognize and install CH products flight sim yoke or CH rudder pedals pro into Microsoft Flight Simulator X

My radio control flight sims won't recognize the flight controller USB devices either
I have no yellow question marks or exclamatin points in device manager

I have one device that is "unknown" shown under game controllers in device manager

Is there an easy fix?
Will a registry cleaner and repair program fix this and if so, which is the best?


Preferred Solution: error code initilization failure

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello all,

I have a problem with Windows Update agent on Windows 7 SP1 enterprise.
We are using Configuration Manager 1606 and Windows 7 SP1 and about 140 computers works without any problem.
On the other 10 computers I got the following error message in the windowsupdate.log:
WARNING: SyncUpdates failure, error = 0x8024400D, soap client error = 7, soap error code = 300, HTTP status code = 200
WARNING: SOAP Fault: 0x00012c
WARNING:     faultstring:Fault occurred
WARNING:     ErrorCode:InvalidParameters(7)

I've tried several actions although none does any help. Here is the list of actions:
- upgrade windows update agent to the latest version
- windows update agent reset by this instructions https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/971058/how-do-i-reset-windows-update-components
- empty Temporary Internet files
- check the rules and blocked traffic on windows firewall and physical firewall between server and workstation vlan
- sfc /scannow

It looks like significant Windows 7 error, although reinstalling is not my option.

Thanks for any help!

I can't seem to find help in finding and fixing a problem I'm having with XP Professional on my Dell PC.

The error is Security Accounts Manager Initilization Error: the handle is invalid
Error Status: 0xc0000008

Please click OK to shutdown this system and reboot.

I have tried rebooting in safe mode and get the same message which won't allow me to do anything and the system reboots.

I have also tried the selections in the safe mode ..... Last know working Configuration and command line etc. with the same results and nothing works.

Any help to resolve this would be much appreciated.

Recently, my computer got infected with a virus, so I booted in safe mode, ran Malywarebytes to get ride of it. I repeatably went into safe mode, scan, log into windows to see of the virus was still there

When it seemed that I finally got ride of the virus in safe mode, I rebooted and received this error message

***STOP 0x0000007B (0XB84C7524, 0x000000E, 0X00000000)

I know 0x0000007B means a boot issue, but I have no idea what those numbers afterwards are.

If someone could point me in the right direction of what this error message means, since I don't want to guess and check, I would be grateful.

That should help you out a little. Honestly if you just removed a virus I'd say a system critical file may have been altered or deleted. Try using your OS CD to run a repair install, GL.

IE 10 update fails to install.

What I've done so far:

Ran selective startup thru msconfig and attempted install to no avail
Installed SURT
Ran sfc /scannow

I tried reinstalling windows no joy, so it had to be my PSU right? Even though my 2-3 year old Corsair HX850W with it's 7 year warranty (guess what, I can't find the receipt!) is supposed to be bullet proof. So, new PSU purchased. An Antec Earthwatts 650w. Still the same problem.

I checked the RAM, 4X 2GB sticks, one by one, they all failed on Test 7 of Memtest 86. As did two brand new sticks. A google revealed that that version of Memtest fails on Test 7 regardless. I tried the latest version of Memtest 86+ and all the sticks passed.

I checked all 3 hard drives with Seatools - all 3 were fine.

I have searched for 3 days for an answer to this problem. I have talked to folks at HP, Tiger Direct, Geek Squad, you name it everyone agreed at first, now I get different answers!!!!! So I come to you.
I have a HP Pavilion dv6324us notebook bought in late 07 with Vista Home Premium, last week I got an imminent hard drive failure, but before I could do anything it just croaked. I had not produced the recovery DVDs. I checked the bios and could not run the HDD test, the answer was no ide detected, also the only boot option was for the DVD drive, no hard drive showed up, (this was the point everyone agreed on, the Hard drive was dead and not being recognized by the system). I bought a new hard drive from Tigerdirect and bought a recovery DVD from HP. I installed the new Seagate Momentous 120 SATA, inserted the recovery CD and things started to happen, Ahhh Bliss, as soon as I click the yes button to install the works WHAM a box with
ERROR CODE 100a if this code persists contact HP. I did, now they think the hard drive is OK, it's the mother board thats bad, or the connector, or the software. I hooked up a usb Drive to see if it reads in the bios and it does. ONE thing I do notice is the new hard drive does not get seen by the bios, so could it be the mother board or the connector? I would really appreciate any help that can be given, I don't want to keep throwing good money after bad, but even better would be to finally get an answer. Thanks

A:Hard Drive Failure and an error 100a code

Hi gw122, welcome to the board.

Sounds like either bad SATA cable, bad connection or port. Have you try a different post? Also, replace SATA cable. Other possibility is your PSU went unstable which causing mb damage. PSUs in all big computer manufacturers are questionable in quality. So HP may be right about the mb is being bad.

Hope this helps.

I can not for the life of me get SP1 to install. It always gives me the 80070002 error.

I've done what the microsoft help says to do which is clear out my updates list after stopping windows update in services then starting them again but it just produces the same error code.

I've run the system update readiness tool as well as a sfc /scannow and heres the CBS zip, a zip containing all the cbspersists(so I get them both uploaded under the limit) and a screenshot of the error.

This is starting to affect my ability to play newer games giving me 3B bluescreen errors and the like.

I have a new laptop running Win7 Pro SP1 64-bit as its operating system. It came with IE8. I've been applying the dozens of Windows updates that keep showing up, and they all seemed to apply successfuly until I reached the IE11 update/upgrade. That's when things got weird.

-It kept saying that it had failed, with an error code of 9C48.
-If I restarted, it tried to reinstall the update (which failed) and then when I would re-run Windows Update it would show the IE11 update as an important pending update to be applied.
-However, when I would launch IE and check the "About IE" info, it showed that I was running IE11 not IE8. It was as if it was sort of installed but not fully.

Through internet searching, I stumbled on a couple of your threads. I hadn't read the warning about "don't try acting on advice given to another user" yet so I tried some of the suggestions as follows:
- I installed and ran the System Update Readiness Tool. The CheckSUR and CheckSURpersist logs both show "no errors detected."
-I ran System File Checker (sfc /scannow) and the result was that "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations." (If I had known about "verify only" I would have run that, but this was my first exposure to this tool.)
-I doublechecked a list of IE11 update prerequisites, and it looked to me as though all the required updates were installed.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64-bit Operating System. My issue is that last night I received 8 important updates though Windows Update to install (Windows Update is set to download updates but let me choose when to install them). When I installed them, only 6 were installed. Two of them, Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3088195) and Security Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB3097966), will not install. I have repeatedly tried to dl and install them through Windows Update and both of them fail, with "Error code 80073712".
When this batch of 8 updates showed up last night, I downloaded all of them and Windows Update only showed it was downloading 6 of them. These last two (KB3088195 & KB3097966) will not download. However, they sit in Windows Update as "2 important updates are available". Windows does not keep trying on its own to download them though, neither at shut down nor does it remind me that I have these 2 updates available to download. They just sit in Windows Update as  "2 important updates are available".
I have tried to figure this out for a few hours, but I am not the most computer savvy person. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you getting that error for every updates or when installing a specific update ? . Before trying any repair attempts,  uninstall your antivirus software and see if it helps. You can re install it later. 
If that didn't solve the issue, please follow the below steps.
1 ) Make sure Date, time and region settings are correct.

I presented this Windows Update problem, error code 80070643 to the forum about 18 months ago, and at that time I decided to reinstall W7 as it was the least complex option. The problem I have is a Windows Update failure loop which leads to the failure of all subsequent Windows Updates and also disables System Restore, and the update failure always starts with the .NET Framework update. When this problem started, it occurred every 6 months, so I had no major issues reinstalling just to correct it. Now it is occurring every 2 months, making re-installation unsustainable.

My question is this ? Microsoft kb976982 states that an MSI fix, Microsoft Fixit 50123, should be used first to try to resolve the issue. When I tried to run it, I got the message

?Windows Installer ? this action is only valid for products that are currently installed?.

Visiting Microsoft Help for more info about the Fixit50123, there was this System Tip -

?This article applies to a different version of Windows than the one you are using. Content in this article may not be relevant to you. Visit the Windows 7 Solutions Center?.

Even though there is an MSI.DLL file in W7 system 32, does that mean I do not need this Fixit50123 at all? If so, I can then go ahead and try the uninstall / reinstall the .NET Framework, secure in the knowledge that I did not miss one important step i.e. the MSI Fixit50123.


A:W7 Update failure loop, error code 80070643

The type of error message you got often means that you've downloaded the wrong bitness of installer - however, I do mot think that's the case here (as far as I know, there is only one Fixit50123 file)
What I suspect is that there is a failure in dll registration somewhere - and you need to fix that before attempting anything else.
Are you seeing any other symptoms, besides Windows Updates problems?
try this KB article - How do I reset Windows Update components? use the fixit from that and see if it helps (or gives the same message!)

A:Error code 2000-0146 internal hdd read failure

Your hard drive has died, I hope you made backups.
If the machine is still under warranty Dell will send a replacement.
You may be able to hook up the drive as a slave in another machine and access the data but it can be hit and miss, there is third party software that can locate data from failed drives but it does depend on how bad the drive is.
The only other way is to send the drive to a lab that specialises in data recovery, but it can be expensive

A:A new Windows Update KB2937610 failure; error code 800B0100

Windows Update error 800B0100 - Windows Help

Read other 5 answers

I have a DELL XPS8500 desktop and I have this error code: 2000-0142. I know it means that the HD needs to be replaced. When I chose to boot in partition, I do see the C disk so I'm still confident to be able to recover personal datas at some point but that the Windows booting partition is damaged....
I don't have any recovery nor Windows hardcopy but went from Windows 7 to 10 a few months ago.
I downloaded the Windows Media to create a Windows.ISO on a DVD or USB drive.
I tried to boot from the DVD but it failed to reactivate and reinstalled Windows as I guess the Internal HD is really screwed.
My questions:
- If I install a new HD, should it be straight foward to reinstalled Window by booting from the media DVD?
- Could my damage HD could be access as a ''standard drive after'' as I guess that it may be hopefully just the Windows partition that is damaged.......
Does Dell can supply a Recovery with my Service tag and Express service code?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.


If you've already activated 10 on the system, you can reinstall it at any time.  You'll need the same version (10 or 10 Pro) you had - you can get the ISO from Microsoft and put it on a flash drive to do the installation.  Once 10 is activated, you have a digital entitlement on the system that allows reinstallation.
It is better to remove the faulty drive from the system and reconnect it once you have WIndows reloaded - to try and copy the data.

Hi, I am getting repeated failure of installation of the above package, necessary for the Windows 10 update next month. Every night the package tries to install, and then fails, reverting the changes and restarting a few times in the process. After Windows finally boots, in "Update History" it is shown as failed, however when I look at the list of installed updates it is there! But still regardless of this Windows Update tries to download and install.

What I have tried so far:

1) Uninstalling the update from Control Panel > Windows Update > List of Installed Updates
2) Uninstalling and re-installing .NET 4.5.2 (I saw this advice on a previous post)
3) After this Searching for updates again and installing

Unfortunately the same update failed and the same error code was reported.
I have downloaded the update file from Microsoft and was considering doing a manual install after uninstalling it again, but I'm not sure this is going to work, and it is frustrating seeing as the attempted install/failure/revert process takes about 30 mins. So I thought I would post here for help.

Here is a dropbox link to the CBS logs zip. (it's too large to attach)


In addition, here is a link to the C:\Windows\windowsupdate.log file should you require it:


Any help would be gratefully received!

Windows Update has been trying to install the same 9 updates now since yesterday. Prior to that it's updated with no problems. It goes through all the motions, including having to restart the computer to finalize the updates and it goes through that also, then the Update window says it failed and the error code.
WU then starts the whole thing all over again. Right now it's still on my taskbar and the restart button on the pc has the WU icon ready to finalize after restarting.

I've followed the directions in the Windows UPdate Posting Instructions.

Error code: 80070308

I cannot upload the CBS.zip though. I've tried several times and it's not completing. After a few minutes waiting while it says 'File uploading...please wait' the little window goes from that file attachment to a generic page saying

Personally I set my updates to let me know they are available and I look at them before I install anything. But it is a personal choice my thoughts are that given updates can cause problems I like to know what I have downloaded and then can go back to dedicated update points get rid of problems. see pic

A driver is in an inconsistent or invalid power state. Typically occurs during events that involve power state transitions, such as shutting down, or moving into or out of standby or hibernate mode.

The specific driver cited as the cause of your issues is accelerometer.sys and it belongs to Hewlet-Pacard software.

PamHello teddy249100, This message appears to be a warning that the hard drive is failing. I would backup my data as soon as possible. You should also have a set of HP Recovery Restore disk, since if the hard drive fails, you would need these Recovery disk set to reinsatll the operating system and all your software that came with the HP system. Here  is a link that has some information on this issue.

Hi I am new here, sorry if I am posting this in the wrong area.

I recently purchased an ASUS G1S and been getting bluescreen with the Error Code 0x09F DRIVER STATE POWER FAILURE. This has happened three times already. But every occurrence happens after I switch my laptop out of sleep mode.

1st time
After waking up my laptop I played a DVD in Window Media Center, but after the first 10-15 min, i received a bluescreen.

2nd time
I put my laptop on sleep mode while a DivX video on stage6 was playing, after waking the laptop up the video continued to play, but after 10-15 min the same bluescreen with a DRIVER POWER FAILURE error occurred.

3rd time
I thought it was the nVidia display driver, so I decided to go to laptopvideo2go.com and installed the latest WHQL driver for Vista 32 bit which is 167.43. But after putting the laptop to sleep with Divx video actively playing the same bluescreen appears after 10-15 min of waking the laptop.

In regard to the DivX videos I found out that if I initialize them (play them) after waking my laptop from sleep mode no bluescreen occurs but if I put the laptop to sleep with an active DivX video the system would crash after waking the laptop.

Now another strange things was during the first 10-15 min of video playing the audio was distorted and skipped in some part, like playing music from a scratched CD. In every situation about a few second before the bluescreen the audio would repeat itself, kind of like when a video free... Read more

I'm having trouble installing my authentic copy of Microsoft Office 2007 Ultimate. I use Windows Vista Business, and everything else runs ok. The install fails approximately 20% into the process, and shows the message:

Error 2203. An internal error has occurred. (C:\Windows\Installer\986af5.msi - 2147287008) Contact Microsoft Product Support Services (PSS) for assistance. Following this message are some instructions on how to contact PSS.

I have noticed the file name changes each time - might this mean that setup gets a little further each time I attempt the installation?

Would appreciate any assistance on this matter. Thanks in advance!

Please i need help on how to fix the problem. thanks

A:how to resolve unhandled exception catastrophic failure error code 0x8000FFFF

That message usually means the hard drive partition is "dirty" (ie contains errors).
Run the error checker to detect and repair errors to the file system.

Right-click the hard drive icon & select "Properties".
Click the "Tools" tab.
Click "Check Now".
Tick both options, then click Start.
If the drive is the system drive (ie has Windows installed on it), you'll need to click "Schedule disk check".
Now restart Windows & the disk check will run before Windows loads.

.NET 3.5 is part ofWindows 7 - so we can't use the usual trick of uninstalling/cleaning it out.

There are a mass of what appear to be simple download failures in the update log file - but nothing informative in the CBS.log file
These failures relate to updates as early as KB2862973.

Please run the CheckSUR tool, and post the CheckSUR.log file

Please download and save the CheckSUR tool from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821
(you'll need to look in the details for Windows 7, downloading from the Microsoft Download Center)

Run it - The tool can take anywhere from 5 mins to a couple of hours to run (or 'Install') depending on how much it has to do, and may exit silently - it may appear to freeze for most of that time, but be patient.
The result is logged in the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log file - and an archive …\checksur.persist.log file

Then zip the CheckSUR.log and upload it to your reply.

You're trying to do a PXE boot (which is boot from a network server) and you don't have your network cable connected.

Are you trying to PXE boot? If not, you usually can completely disable PXE in your BIOS. If you don't need it, disable it. If you do, make sure that you are plugged in to your network before turning your computer on.

I am working on a computer for a friend, VPR matrix 1.8 GHz with onboard everything (-minus graphics) 512 RAM, windows XP home, and lots of startup problems. It has service pack 1 installed as well.

She had been using dial-up, but now wants to switch to using broadband. Only problem is that Windows won't allow any DHCP server to give her an IP, and she has to be able to obtain it automatically. (college system).

The network cable connects, and shows status lights, and Windows recognizes a connection for as long as the thing is plugged in. However, the IP Address is When I go to repair it, "The following steps of the repair operation failed. Renewing the IP Address, refreshing all DHCP leases and re-registering DNS names."

Well, I happened to have another network card laying around, so I put that in, disabled the onboard, no luck with that.

I checked Microsoft about it, the closest I came was http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;812335
which talks about SYMTDI dependency if Norton has been unistalled. Well, norton is still on the system.

Any suggestions?
