PC Won't boot
Posted on 2004-10-22
Have a pc on a network that won't boot up. It just keeps making an error message beep over and over. I booted in SAFE mode and got the following messages.
"Could not find any compatible DIRECT3D devices"
"DWWIN.EXE application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0cx0000142)"
"DRWTSN.EXE application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0cx0000142)"
I clicked OK on them and nothing happens.
Some background info that may be related but I don't know how. 3 days ago, I found out there was a worm/virus called I-worm/bagle.n on the PC and I downloaded aa2 to get rid of it. There were over 6000 files infected. I also cleaned it up with the usual collection of adware removers. The computer has been running fine for the last 2 days until this morning.
