I am getting the following error on a Windows 7 PC.
Windows Boot Manager
Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer
This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.
If you continue to receive this error message, contact the hardware manufacturer.
Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred.
The only USB devices plugged into the PC are a wired keyboard and mouse. Nothing will get rid of the error.
I have seen some fixes that recommend repairing Windows 7 by booting up on the Windows install disk and repairing or reinstalling Windows. If this is the fix for this issue, what are my options if I have a Windows 7 DVD, but the PC does not have a built in DVD player.
Any other recommendations for a fix?
