Gator, do you live in Ft. Myers? I'm in Cape Coral.
Well I am not that intuitive as most but I have to say not having the BIOS available is very odd if not downright suspicious.
Have you updated at any time??

The fix for the mapi32.dll error in the SFC report won't do anything for the USB issue.

Download DriverCleanup.zip
Extract all from the compressed folder - just select the default location provided in the extract window
A new explorer widow should open showing the extracted files
navigate to the x64 folder
Right click on DriveCleanup
select Run as administrator

Author's anchor to DriveCleanup
Quote:
DriveCleanup removes all currently non present "Storage Volumes", "Disk", "CDROM", "Floppy" USB drives and their USB devices from the device tree. Furthermore it removes orphaned registry items related to these device types. Since V0.8 it removes WPD devices under Vista and Win7/8/10.

Started with parameter -T (like test) it shows which devices it would remove.
DriveCleanup -T

Started with admin privileges and without a parameter it does its job without further inquiry.

To remove certain types of devices there are the parameters -U -D -C -F -V -W and -R.

Sample to remove abandoned registry entries only:
drivecleanup -R

Under x64 editions of Windows only the included x64 version works.

Admin privileges are required for actual cleanup, without it switches into the test mode.
Scroll up to the top of the command prompt window and make sure it did not run in test mode. If it says test mode, then your did not Run as administrator. please try again. You can close the command prompt window.

Then please post a screenshot of Device Manager showing
any unknown devices
any devices with error icons

These should be easy to spot, the device category should already be expanded to any device that meets that criteria (unknown or problem)

See: Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

I'll probably want to see another one showing the Universal Serial Bus Controllers, but I'm not sure which ones to look at - there are probably quite a few entries in that category.

Let me see what I can see and I'll try to figure out the best way to get more information.

Thanks

Bill

John, it's an HP - they lock the user out of BIOS to protect them. The default settings work for the most part, but it gets frustrating when someone asks you to change a BIOS setting and you can't.

I spent quite a while trying to figure out if my machine was configured AHCI or IDE. The HP documentation did not help until I dug way down and learned that HP sets the default to AHCI - makes perfect sense, but they should really tell us up front what the settings are.

You make a good point about the BIOS version - it might be something to look into and a BIOS update might force the USB ports to be recognized.

I'll gather some information and try to work out the steps.


@CrabbyRightNow: Since John asked about the BIOS, it would be good to know about that and other aspects of your machine.
Please follow this tutorial to provide the current operating environment of your machine.

Ok Bill didn't know that about them (HP) - thought all BIOS's were accessible

I think your point re other aspects of the machine would be good too.

As Gator says, this is hardly a critical system file - and I don't really see it causing your problems. I can see no other significant errors in the CBS background data.

I'll post a fix protocol for it a little later.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. Should I run the drivercleanup.exe now or wait for Noel's fix?
Yes, this is a bloat-filled HP notebook.

I've uploaded a file - crnaa.zip - to my OneDrive at Noel's OneDrive
Please download and save it.

Right-click on the saved file and select Extract all...
Change the target to C:\ and click on Extract
Close all windows (it would be a good idea to print these instructions!)

Now reboot to the Repair Environment - as soon as the machine restarts, start tapping F8 - this should bring up the Advanced Boot Menu, at the top of which should be the option 'Repair my Computer'
Pick that
You'll have to log in with your username and password.

Pick the option to use a Command Prompt
At the prompt type
DIR C:\crnaa
hit the enter key - if you get a 'Not Found' error try
DIR D:\crnaa
or
DIR E:\crnaa



The drive letter in use when you find the folder will need to be substituted (for<drive>) into the following command...



XCOPY <drive>:\crnaa <drive>:\windows\winsxs /y /i /s /v /h



(e.g. XCOPY P:\wfire P:\windows\winsxs /y /i /s /v /h )



run the command (it should take almost no time) and when the prompt returns, type
EXIT
and hit the Enter key to exit Command Prompt - reboot to Normal Mode Windows.

Now run SFC /SCANNOW in an Elevated Command Prompt
then reboot and upload the new CBS.log file to your reply

Do Noel's patch first, then DriverCleanup and the other things I requested.

I do want to verify the model number though. I posted links to the NR model, I'll double check HP to see if there is more than one model for your machine, but there's usually a link in your start menu or bookmarks that take you directly to the support page.

The HP assistant might also give you that information or link - it's HP bloat, but it has at least one good virtue.

edit: searching HP for DV7-7012 only turned up the NR model so I probably have the right links.
