    Error Code 8007312

    On 7/30/07 I asked a question that did not get answered 'disk managment
    computer mangment'. Now I am getting error 8007312 and windows update will
    not run.
    I wrote on Monday
    "Unable to Connect to Virtual Disk Service
    diagnostic

    I have a Vista Home Pre. Pc that had a sata data drive go bad so i removed
    it and ordered a new hard drive. While I am waiting for the disk I need to
    press F1 to by pass the disk during boot up. After Vista starts I see all my
    other disk thruough windows explorer but if I check them through computer
    mangment/disk managment I get Unable to Connect to Virtual Disk Service.

    I do not know if Vista is damaged or I need to start a service or even the
    bois F1 is effecting it but I thought I better ask. Is there something I need
    to do to get disk managment working? Also can I run some type of diagnostic
    that will tell me what else is wrong?

    Thanks Jon"
    Please point me in the right direction if you can not answer.
    Thanks again Jon

    I think there is missing digit in the error code, they are usually 8
    digits long.

    Given that the System File Checker found errors
    that it couldn't repair, a re-install of Vista may not be such a bad thing,
    in the long run.

    You can re-install Vista, using the Upgrade option.
    This will maintain your user settings and programs. See
    "Upgrade procedure" in this article:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/918884

    Insert and start the DVD from Your Desktop (don't boot the DVD), that is,
    when you are Logged On to Windows.
    When confronted with the "press any key.." prompt, after the computer
    restarts, don't press any key, and Setup will continue...

    Well, the fact that the System File Checker ground to a halt after such a
    short time, indicates, to me at least, more problems down the road.

    You could try the fix for Windows Update, offered here:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/931712

    If that fixes Windows Update, then try the sfc /scannow command again (Run
    as Administrator)....

    I did the reinstall "upgrade" and the Windows update works and disk manger.
    The only thing wrong is my sound is off, which was not a problem before.
    Device manger see my sigma sound but the sound link say No devices available.
    I tried to uninstall and reinstall but it did nothing in device mgr also
    tried to updating the driver. Any ideas?

    Well, it seems as if it's not one thing, then it's another. Bummer. Try
    this first. Right-click the Volume icon, and choose Playback Devices. On
    the Playback tab of Sound, right-click an empty spot of the window, and put
    a checkmark next to "Show Disabled Devices" and
    "Show Disconnected Devices". From there, if Speakers shows up, right-click
    the Speakers icon to enable.

    Then Double-click the Speakers icon. On the Enhancements tab, put a check
    next to "Disable all sound effects", then click Apply. On the Advanced tab,
    click on Restore Defaults, and make sure both check-boxes, under Exclusive
    Mode, do have a check mark. (Apply, OK).

    If none of that pans out, or there is no Sound control panel at all, post
    back your Computer make and model names, and the name of your sound device
    in Device Manager, along with the version number of the driver.
