    I've already posted one thread about this a couple of weeks ago, and got a couple of replies, neither of which have been successful.
    I can sometimes boot up ok, but most of the time, I get the error message. I looked at the bootlog.txt and everything seems fine except two lines which reads:-

    [00132AA3] Dynamic load device nuwave.drv
    [00132AA3] Dynamic load failed nuwave.drv : [00132AA3] File not found

    How can I find what program of piece of hardware or software needs this drv, and how do I cure it?

    I suspect it could be my zip drive. My problems started after installing software for it, but it still happened after I removed it. Could it be in my registry?:confused:

    I believe the Nuwave.drv is a SoundBlaster file.
    As you said, it could be in the registry.
    Try clicking on Start, run, enter Regedit and click ok.
    Search the registry for "nuwave.drv".
    If it is found try deleting the entry. You can export the entry before deleting it if you are nervous about messing with the registry.
