Tell us a little more about the device (keyboard) that you installed.  Model, etc?

6.  After upgrading to XP you get the message cannot find the file \\.\DRI_KBFiltr when booting HP laptop.
If your keyboard is supported by XP, try uninstalling and let XP detect it. If you do not get the error message when you reboot, you do not need to do the below. But you may need to reinstall the software to get the buttons to work.

This is related to the keyboard.

Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, remove HP One-Touch Buttons
Go to Control Panel, Keyboard, Hardware tab, select your keyboard and click
Properties button.
On Driver tab, click Update Driver.
Select the "Install from a specific location", click Next.
Select the "Search for best driver in these locations" option.
Uncheck "Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM..)", folder after the upgrade.
After clicking Next, it should find the drivers, install them, reboot.
Check HP's web site for more fixes.

skiid40003......if u have isntalled the keyboard drivers form the CD and also installed it's Software.....then first uninstall the keyboard software....then goto Device Manager and uninstall the kyboard drivers....reboot......Windows will install the drivers for ur keyboard again......check if this time that error is coming or not.....if NO then don't isntall the software and drivers from the multimedia keyboard CD......coz some multimedia keyboards are not compatible with XP.
That's the reason i never isntall my keyboard drivers from the Installation disk or CD provided with the keyboard......XP is a Universal OS....it will automatically install the required drivers for ur multimedia keyboard.

GOOD LUCK :)

i spilled red wine on my toshiba satellite 1900 laptop...:i cleaned up the mess (completly)but the only way i can open windows properly...is when my keyboard is unplugged! i get a beeping signal when my keyoard is plugged....i did not lose anything hardwre/software.  About 8 keys are still not functionning....i was wondering if it was possible to reconfigure only the keyboard? and why when my keyboard is plugged i need to press f2 to get access to windows?
