vftd.vxd failed on boot (Windows Protection Error)
Posted on 2000-02-17
My problem follows, if you can help great, if not no worries
I'm unable to boot normally, I can get in via safe mode or step-by-step confirmation. When I boot normally it gives me : "Windows Protection, failed to open vrft.vxd. You need to restart your comp" So I rebooted, and went to step-by-step confimration, and hit 'Y' to all confirms except vftd.vxd , and it works fine then. I've used all the utilites I could possibly think of to fix it, but nothing worked, so I went in to the registry, and disabled all 'vftd.vxd' tags (I saved a back up of it first, which I still have), I restarted and it worked, kinda... I don't get sound from one sound card, and I can't reboot the 'proper' way (Start menu, restart gives me the blue screen of death, and then hangs at a black screen)...
Any help at all? Know where I could find help, or the vftd.vxd?
I appreciate your help, even if you can only point me in the right direction
