Windows 7: The classpnp.sys

27 Jul 2010   #11

Windows 7, 64-Bit

Even with the system restore (i did get to it, and allowed it to complete repairs) it still don't want to know.

*edit i think the only solution is to drop this unit off a bluddy building....none of the aforementioned works at all.

System restore failed to extract file classpnp.sys from the restore point as it was damaged. ???
I'm confused. Are you trying a Recovery or System Restore? Two quite different things.

At this point I would do a Repair Install... This will show you how to do a repair upgrade install to fix your currently installed Windows 7 and preserve your user accounts, data, programs, and system drivers.

Windows 7, 64-Bit

Hi again.

Just a mention to repair installs....I couldn't get into W7 anyway, so it wasn't really of any use to me.

The recovery you suggested to me I tried. I got the boot sequence, went to CD, took a while, and tried the options. Nothing. I know for certain - after failing on all restore options (recovery AND system restore efforts) that even reinstalling the OS fluffs up at Expanding Windows Files (0%).

Next course of action is formatting the partition. It's a 1TB drive, with the fault on the smaller W7 section (100GB) with all my data, games, music blah blah on the other partition. (D: drive.)

I'll see if a format/deletion of all directories kicks it into life.

Hi Devilish
When you say "went to CD, took a while, and tried the options." What "options" did you get?
Also when you say "that even reinstalling the OS fluffs up at Expanding Windows Files (0%)." Am not sure wgahat this means. The OS fluffs up is not a term I am familiar with!
Are you trying to Re-install Win 7 over the top of an existing copy or have you formatted and re-installed?

Lol, sorry for the bad terminology.

What I meant was, the installation basically failed at that point.

The option I did get was a System Repair. And the screen went black; and nothing happened at all.

Currently, the HDD has been quick-formatted; and a fresh re-install of Windows 7* to see if this can do any better.
