  • "this device cannot start (code 10)", which means code 10?

    I was alarmed because I could stop my computer because of a 'message' came onto my computer and I was able to get off. So he would'nt stop. I was installing some new drivers with my Scanner Driver Uniblue, when this happened and so I Google'd up Uniblue to see if I could know what I could do about it, and I found there an investigation on the system cleaners and uniblue was last on their list of 5 questioned, and there were a few bad reports on this subject. I also had on my system, cure of Parelogic pilot, who had slipped completely under my guard through an email from the author of 'Math better explained', an e-book that I had downloaded some time ago and I have now seems to be a fake email because when I looked towards the top of Parelogic there was so many complainants and we even said that they do absolutely nothing positive and in fact that their objective is to implant the computers people and they must be reported to the FBI.

    In any case I finally understood how to disable the offending message. But now I'm worried about 10 network cards that have yellow triangles with! "s with the message"this device cannot start (Code 10) ". It's probably just because I have no network connection, but I can't be sure until I have find this code 10 means,.

    Thank you for your trouble,


    Hello calico.ghotmail,

    My apologies for the delay in the response to this topic.

    Code 10 means that a device could not start.

    If there is no network connection on this computer, then this might be a possible reason for this error.

  • Microstoft ISATAP adapt: this device cannot start (code 10)

    I've had no internet access for a few weeks - a day that worked and then the next day no wi - fi or Ethernet connection. Someone on the MS Community suggested to install driver updates, but the laptop in question has no access to the internet and has been updated automatically anyway. Today, I tried to reinstall the drivers on the adapters wi - fi and broadband from the phone itself, which seemed successful. But when I got to the ISATAP Protocol would not do the same thing and it comes up with the error message in the title of this post.

    I read a few posts, which suggest to uninstall the adapter and then put it back, but as my laptop has no way to connect to internet, I don't see how it will work in my case. I don't seem to have the Win 7 CD either, unfortunately. So, where do I get a new adapter or update the driver, or whatever I need to do?

    Thank you


    Hi Snarli,

    Thanks for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are unable to connect to the internet and that he wants to know if you will be able to re - install ISATAP Adapter without an internet connection or not.

    I suggest you to run the troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    Hardware devices do not work or are not detected in Windows:

    You will be able to install base drivers to restart the system after installation.

    If you have any other computer where you can download the driver and the copy to an external hard drive or USB key, you can go ahead and uninstall the driver and restart the computer. Is it does not automatically get installed, and then try to install it by using a USB key.

    You can consult the advice given by Vinod N replied on 26 April 2011.

    I hope this helps to solve the issue. If the problem persists, get back to us. We will be happy to help you.

Therefore, we recommend that solve you these problems with emphasis on device drivers, configuration of device problems and hardware compatibility issues.

  • We get an error "this device cannot start" Code 10 on Windows 7.

    Original title: USB not recognized verified work storage device

    I have a 8 GB USB Flash drive that has, until recently, worked perfectly on several OSes including Windows 7 and 8. Recently, the player does not seem to want to work on one of my installations of Windows 7 on a PC (HP EliteBook 8470p).

    I tried to reinstall the drivers for it on my machine specific windows 7 that does not work on. Device Manager gives me "this device cannot start. (Code 10) "even after reinstalling the drivers and reboot several times. I use also some virtual machines in Windows 7 and 8 on the same PC, and when connecting virtually the USB key to the virtual machine to Windows 7, I can't detect it. When you connect the device to the virtual machine from Windows 8, I can access the files and even format, so the USB ports on my computer are all functional.

    To summarize, the device works in Windows 7 and 8 separate facilities of this computer, but does not work on 7 on my TI, if the main or virtualized operating system. The VM of Windows 8 on this computer can recognize the device.

    Thanks for the answer, except that I discovered the problem. I checked upward in the disk management window, and I saw that the reader, for some reason, was not assigned a letter. After you manually assign the drive letter, all data on the disc is now available. Thanks anyway.

  • Headset (headphones and microphone) USB - this device cannot start - Code 10


    I just bought a USB headset today and tried to use it.  I had a driver error message when first plugged in.  The help system has proved to be unnecessary.

    After doing some research on this forum, I checked the Device Manager and found that the indicatses of properties of USB audio device "this device cannot start. (Code 10) ".  Forum entries suggests that a lot of people have similar problems.

    Mine is a new installation of 64-bit Windows 7 on a new hard drive, but on older hardware of the PC - Asus A8N SLI Premium.  Someone at - it had suggestions as to the resolution of the problem.  Note that a normal headset worked fine yesterday (but I broke it) plugged into the jack Sockets, but I wanted to use a USB headset to avoid having to continue to go to the back of the computer to replace my system 2.1 speakers.

    Thank you


    The Code 10 error code is generated when the Device Manager has not enough information or error that spread upwards by device drivers is not recognized by Device Manager. In addition, this error may occur if one of the pilots who needs the unit does not start. If multiple drivers are used by a particular device, it can be difficult to determine which failed.

    I suggest you follow the steps in the link below and check if it can help solve your problem.

    Please reply back and let us know the status of the issue.

    Description of errors related to the 10 Code that generates the Device Manager in Windows on computers

    Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total
    a process that solves the problem.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
    Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
    RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue

    Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a coward
    cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both
    ends. Remove and replace, do not just tight. For laptops, you can often clean power and
    contacts data with a pencil eraser.

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
    manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.


    Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD
    Burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 operational so that other parts
    do it right.

    Did you follow the Troubleshooting Guide for the reader who still does not work? There are
    the entries in registry that the troubleshooter does not solve and those who "might" be the cause.

    Check with your Maker system and a device for the two possible firmware updates and
    the correct registry entries for your car.

    Here are the keys that I of course are those in question - for the subkeys of the CD/DVD drive
    as there will be other subkeys in these keys. Do not forget to ask specific keys involved as well as
    the parameters.

  • This device cannot start (Code 10) - high definition Audio Device AND opening. VHD files.

    Just upgraded from Vista professional to Home Premium 7.  (Which means that I couldn't have the installationl UPDATE and had to go for CUSTOM).  In hindsight, not a good idea!
    1. no sound from speakers.  I tried updated driver.  Problem is with the Microsoft high definition Audio Device.  Using T9404 of advent, Intel R, HD 400 G, 1 G of RAM.  Speakers are not muted and sound card worked fine with Vista.
    2 had a full backup in Vista immediately before moving to 7; But - guess what - can't open. VHD files for the look, or use it!
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    His problem solved.  For the benefit of others in the same boat, that's what I did.
    After trying everything I could think of, I had another look at the system clean.

  • This device cannot start (Code 10) - referring to the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM internal drive.

    Since yesterday I get the message above regarding my internal CD on my Acer laptop drive.

    The PC is barely over a year old & the Cd-Rom works fine up until now.

    I recently moved from Windows Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional (about 2 weeks ago) and the CD-Rom drive has been used successfully to restore all my backup files that W7 is a new installation (not an upgrade).

    I removed the CD-Rom drive (a device slimtype DVD ADS8A2S Philips - Lite-on according to its label) and have re-connected it, but it still does not work.

    Windows seems to see the device when I say add a device, but when he tries automatically configer it I get the message "there is a problem with the driver for Slimtype DVD A DS8A2S ATA Device. "Reinstall the driver may resolve this problem" and gives me the ability to "Apply patch" or "jump the fix. When I choose "Apply patch" I finally get the message "device driver software not properly installed" - Please consult the manufacturer of your device to help... »

    Someone at - it ideas why all of a sudden I get a problem with my CD, I can not restore to any previous backups that I need a CD-Rom drive to do? In the meantime, I'll do a search in the site of compatibility of Windows to see if I can find a match for my camera and what he said about it.

    PS. the only thing different (new) I did just before I lost my CD-Rom has been thast I had linked to a conversion cassette tape via a USB device that my wife wanted some songs from an old tape of copy on CD. Tape copied OK and was transferred to the software iTunes on the PC, but when I said that I wanted to "Burn" the selection in College, I noticed that my CD-Rom (player 'E') show is no longer on my PC configuration, only on disks hard "C" and "D". If this has an impact on my problem, I don't know - it could just have been a co-fact?

    The following MS KB article may help:

    Try the auto fix (Mats - Run.dvd.exe) and if that doesn't work try following the steps for Windows Vista, which should also work for Windows 7.

    These measures, to remove the UpperFilters and LowerFilters, values if they exist, in the registry key named can help.

    Create a System Restore Point beforehand and restart the computer later.
