  • Read this link which also has some solutions :

    Description of Code 10-related errors that Device Manager generates in Windows-based computers


    Do these to clear corruption and repair/replace damaged/missing system files.

    Start - type in Search box -  CMD     find at top of list -  RIGHT CLICK  -  RUN AS ADMIN

    sfc /scannow

    Then run checkdisk (chkdsk).

    After the above :
    ontrol Panel - Device Manager - SOUNDS - look for HD Audio - Mine says RealTek High Definition Audio (that is an example and yours may have an entirely different name/maker).

    Write down description make and model - double click on it - drivers tab - write down version. Now Click UPdate Drivers which may not do anything as MS is far behind certifying drivers. Then RIGHT CLICK on it and UNINSTALL - REBOOT - this will rebuild the driver stack.

    1st go to system maker's site and look for latest driver Download - SAVE - go to right click on and RUN AS ADMIN (This is your fallback.) REBOOT

    Then do same for Device Maker's site.

  • Hello,

    The Windows Desktop Perfmon and Diagnostic tools forum is to discuss performance monitor (perfmon), resource monitor (resmon), and task manager, focusing on HOW-TO, Errors/Problems, and usage scenarios.

    As the question is off topic here, I am moving it to the Where is the Forum... forum.
