    required device isn't connected or can't be accessed


    Hi guys,

    I'm having an issue with a pc im fixing for one of my customers. I reflowed the gpu and removed some viruses but now everytime i restart the pc i get this message which I can fix with the installation media. But everytime i fix it, once i turn the computer off again after using it normally for whatever amount of time, when i turn it on again, i get the blue screen again. Any ideas whats causing it to happen everytime?

    Thanks in advance

    Try to do the Dism repair, to see if that fixes the issue. DISM - Fixing Component Store Corruption in Windows 8

    cheers for the sugestion but no luck im afraid. It said it had repaired the corruption but immediately after restarting, i'm getting the same error again. Could it be the hdd failing? and its just repairing the system onto bad blocks over and over?
