    Re, Epson Perfection 1250U scanner.

    My friend is receiving this error message.

    Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration (in the registry) is incomplete of damaged. (Code 19)

    How do we overcome this problem?

    Yes, we removed the drivers and re-installed them, and the scanner worked fine.
    But when you restart the computer, the scanner folder is missing, and you get this error message again.
    Someone told me I might have to rebuild the registry, but this sounds like a nightmare.
    Any ideas/help/information would be greatly appreciated.

    Can you turn the scanner on first before booting? Here's a link to a possible solution. It says cd drive, but somebody else said it fixed a Zip drive problem.

    Thanks,

    We did boot the computer up with the scanner on, but it didn't seem to make any difference, I'll try again just in case.
    I've got the same scanner working under Win Me and never had a problem.

    Great comment on the thread (Refresh Rate), made me laugh.

    XP will not recognize any peripherals if they are not switched on at startup unlike Win9x os's. ;)
