    I lost all functioning of hotkeys, such as on my scanner, and keyboard. One button scan, email etc... internet and audio buttons on the keyboard. I think I tracked it down to the human interface device module, which windowsxp says "the specified module cannot be found." Anyone have any ideas on cause and solution here.......

    Thanks

    Maybe try.....
    start> run. Type in SFC /SCANNOW. This will check your system files for corruption and replace if necessary.

    What brand/model of keyboard is it? Have you tried reinstalling the software for the keyboard yet?

    Ran sys file checker before, no luck. The hot buttons on none of my peripherals work. Scanner, or keyboard...

    event viewer description: "human interface device failed to load" specified module could not be found.

    Go to start>run. Type in services.msc
    Scroll down to Human Interface Device Access. Under the startup type......is it listed as disabled ?

    I agree with mtbird. I was just disabling some services last night using the guide from black viper and here is a quote from that page. "Human Interface Device Access ~ you may not have any peripherals that require this service. If one of yours magically does not function anymore, set it to automatic. Namely, scanners with function buttons (fax, copy) or even an "Internet" keyboard with volume or play controls."

    I had visited viper's site long ago and followed his recommendations on what services could be disabled. Although "human interface device" has always been set to automatic... I never disabled it because I new hotbuttons relied on it. I think I'll try reinstalling the scanner software, but I'm fairly certain somethings a little funky with windows...

    You can do a Repair installation of WinXP Pro. When you boot to your cdrom it will detect that you already have an OS then give you the option of doing an upgrade. Choose this option, you will not lose any of your data or settings. It will also repair anything else you may have wrong but don't notice.
