I'm Adam, I'll be helping you solve this issue.

Only hit the Accept button if my response helps resolve the issue, otherwise reply and we'll continue.

 

 

Since this started happening fairly recently, lets try this first:

Click the Windows Logo button (bottom left of screen) >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> System Restore. Follow the prompts to pick a restore date and time you are sure the issue wasn't on your computer (you may need to check the show more restore points box). Finally, restart your computer when it prompts you to.

Please let me know if the issue persists after the restoration, you will not lose any files rather this restores the settings that were on your computer before you had the issue.

You can come back here anytime to continue when you are ready - go to www.justanswer.com, and then click my questions (upper right) to get here again.

 

PLEASE HIT THE ACCEPT BUTTON IF THIS HAS HELPED YOU!

He always had a Antivirus on it and the program expired in April so he updated it (Norton). Now that is installed. When he also turns on the system the system always says New Hardware found. And PCI need
to be reloaded? Is this part of the Status 14

That did not work when the system cam back on I got another screen that says : System Config Utility. This is a pop up screen that wasnt me to answer okay or not.
Expert:  Cris replied 3 years ago.
That message is fine it's from the system configuration letting you know that you have made changes. The box appears when you start your PC. There is a box box at the lower left hand corner but a check in the box and hit OK.

Until you do that you will get the receive the box when you start up. However that is not a message indicating a issue just letting you know you made a change.

Did you receive the message you were getting before about INF file Txtsetup.sif ?
Expert:  Cris replied 3 years ago.

I have been getting this Inf message for several months accoring to my husband. I did not check the box on the lower left of the system config box. Is that something I need to do?
Expert:  Cris replied 3 years ago.
Yes, when the PC restarts put a check in the box and the message will no longer appear.

After I had you remove the check marks on the system config box and you restarted.
