    cannot find device file that may be needed to run windows or a windows application.
    the windows registry or SYSTEM.INI file refers to this device file,but the device file no longer exists.
    if you deleted this file on purpose,try unstalling the associated application using its uninstall or setup program.
    if you still want to use the application associated with this device file try reinstalling that application to replace missing file.
    hit any key to continue
    i am a beginner can you tell me what i need to do or did i mess somthing up bad,
