When I tried to run Team Fort2 today winXP crashed and gave me the error.
"RAID Services US English Resources encountered a problem and needs to close."
List of current related symptoms
-No sound. WMP won't open. Winamp gives error "Bad DirectSound driver. Please install proper drivers... Code: 88780078"
-Can't run system restore, get this error "System Restore is not able to protect your computer."
-Computer doesn't acquire an ip address when booted, need to type ipconfig /renew.
- Can't run windows update, says i ned to fix update.inf/cryptographic.
-Can't install nFOrce motherboard/raid/sound dirvers. Get some error.
-Can't get into Disk Managment, get error "RPC Server is unavailable."
-Minimized windows don't go to the task bar. They min to the desktop right above the bar.
(everything above is a new problem as of today)
I've tried booting the computer with Nvraidservice.exe turned off in msconfig but it didnt help. I'm currently trying to plug a sound card in to see if it works (network, sound, raid are all built into the motherboard).
I don't have the windows xp cd but this install is from my original genuine disk.
Any ideas? Anything at all?
