“It seems that this problem is because the wdf01000.sys file itself has somehow been corrupted. All you should need to do is obtain a copy of the file from a working install of Vista. It is located in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers. Just copy it to a CD or USB drive. Boot your computer from a Windows Vista repair disc or from your Windows Vista Installation DVD. On the second screen select Repair. Skip the automatic startup repair and click the option to open a command prompt. Now change your directory to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers and rename your wdf01000.sys to something like wdf01000.old. Now copy the wdf01000.sys file from your CD or USB drive. Exit the command prompt and reboot the system. You should now be up and running. NOTE: Make sure the version of Vista you get your file from is the same version. In other words don't copy the file from a 64bit version to a 32bit version etc.”
Here is what I got after a Google search with “HP Pavilion x360 m3-u103dx “: https://www.laptopscreen.com/English/mod...-Compaq/PAVILION~X360~M3-U103DX/ and HP’s website: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Replace-cracked-screen-on-HP-Pavilion-x360-m3-Convertible-m3/td-p/6226153 with the actual part number and the service guide which you should download. Hope this helps.
When you say "turn on" do you mean for the power light to come on or the booting up to Windows? If booting up to the Windows desktop then either Windows is corrupted and needs a re-install or the the hard drive is defective.
If the cause is a corrupt drive then the driver must be completely uninstalled. This means using one of the third party uninstallers and registry cleaners (or manually in the registry if you know your way around). I use IObit Uninstaller for software part, Windows Device Manager for the actual core driver (but this does not get all remnants such as settings, etc) and so then PrivaZer or Ccleaner to mop up. IObit ASC can sometimes help as well. Then reboot and run the cleaners again. Then reboot and let Windows 10 find the drive then reinstall the HP biometric scanner software from their web site. I’ve had this problem with video drivers and touchpads. Some of the above may be ‘overkill’ but I like to error on the side of caution. The above has always worked for me. Only once was it defective hardware and so, of course, did not work. But I was then 99% sure it was hardware. As for the1% ? Well you never know!
I’m assuming your model is the one with the eMMC SSD which is embedded (soldered in). You could add a large SD memory card for more storage. If yours is the hard drive version of the Inspiron 14-3452 then just upgrade the drive to a larger capacity. People please, use the Internet BEFORE you purchase something. There are a lot of products out there that are impossible to repair or upgrade. Do us all a favour - don’t buy them or the situation will not change. Money talks.
This is from Wikipedia: “Cyanoacrylate-based glue has a weak bond with smooth surfaces and as such easily gives to friction; a good example of this is the fact that cyanoacrylates may be removed from human skin by means of abrasives (e.g. sugar or sandpaper). “ Let us know how it goes.
Sounds like a driver issue. With the PS4 controllers unplugged go into Device Manager, in Windows, and unistall the Controller. Reboot the computer and then plug in the controllers once Windows completely finishes booting up. Let Windows discover and load the driver. Let us know how it goes.
Take out battery and plug in the charger with NO battery. Video on how to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJxQAGIp... Close up with battery out and turn on with just charger plugged in. If it works now then the battery is defective and so replace. If not then the charger may be defective. Have a techie friend check the power supply voltage with a multimeter. Let us lnow how it goes.
