This may not be the place for this issue, but since it is already started, I'll continue.
I have the same problem everytime I boot; the i8042prt driver
fails to load. Running a bootlog confirms this failure, yet I can find the driver
in the folder it is supposed to be. I have had it for a very long time, but I do not really think it is causing any problems. Would like to get rid of it at some point anyway. My guess is it appeared at a time I could not get my Bluetooth keybord to work when trying to log on. Had a PS2 keyboard and logged on with that; it has now gone for recycling and I am dependent on bluetooth. So, by today, I am a wizard on bluetooth keyboards, and always manage to log on, no matter what. Last time I got it running by hitting it with my head.
Anyway, ever since, I have had this error when starting. It has puzzled me, as I cannot find this driver for any of the 5 (!) mysterious keyboard entries I have in my Device Manager (2 HID Keyboard Devices, MS eHome MCIR 109 Keyboard, MS eHome MCIR Keyboard and MS eHome Remote Control Keyboard keys). None of them seem to be using the failing driver.
If I show the hidden devices in the Device Manager, an entry "Terminal Server Keyboard Driver" turns up under System Devices. This one use i.a. the i8042prt.sys driver. This also show in the dxdiag (thanks for the tutorials helping me find it).
So what is the "Terminal Server Keyboard Driver" and anybody having a suggestion how to fix the error?
alexanderd, are you still around, and did you find any solution?
