Driver Error code 3 with not working devices also on Virtual Machine
Hello to everybody,
I am trying to post a help request here since is much time i try to solve this problem without success.
What brought me to post the help request is the new fact that i get the same error after ported my
system in a Virtual Machine.
I explain better.
Several years ago I purchased an HP Desktop P6228it equipped with Q8300 CPU and 6Gbytes of RAM.
It came with Windows 7 (don't remember if Pro or Home) and I updated it with Windows 7 Ultimate.
It worked fine for long time when suddenly the DVD stopped to work.
I supposed to be an hardware failure so i didn't cared to much, it was not essential for me.
Then also the audio stopped to work. It was neither essential too, so i didn't cared.
Then I realized that some other "exclamation points" was showed in the Device Manager.
I have at moment a "code 3" for the following devices:
Audio, Intel ICH10LPC, Intel QuadCPU, Display, CD-ROM.
I tried to install a PicoScope device and also it have now a "code 3" error in the device driver.
Recently i virtualized all my systems as sort of backup procedure.
Also this PC has been virtualized and tested.
During the test of the virtualization on a completely different computer i surprisingly noticed that
also on the virtual machine the same errors was listed.
So i realized the computer has not hardware problems but completely software problems.
I would really appreciate an help about this "code 3" error.
I followed a number of hints and procedures i found around, but none of the ones i applied
Of course I could re-format all, but obviously it is the my last option.
Help please... i think that having this problem solved would help many others.

I finally managed to solve it!
I have finally found this link:
windows 7 - Several devices in Device Manager have Code 3 error - Super User
The instructions are related to Windows 7 32 bit.
I exported a REG file of a Windows 7 64 bit machine I also have.
I imported in the defective o.s. and IT WORKED!
It has to do with a wrong setting of the file: wdf01000.sys
My registry was rather different than a working one.
It should look as:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
I hope this info will help others!
