Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
1. Restart your pc if you haven’t done so already.
There is always the remote possibility that the Code 39 error you’re seeing was caused by some kind of fluke or temporary issue. If so, a simple reboot might fix the Code 39.
2. Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before you noticed the Code 39? If so, it’s very possible that the change you made caused the Code 39 error.
Undo the change if possible, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 39 error.
Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:
• Remove or reconfigure the newly installed device.
• Reverse the registry changes you made.
• Roll back the driver to the version prior to your update.
3. Delete the UpperFilters and LowerFilters registry values. A common cause of Code 39 errors is the corruption of two registry values in the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class registry key.
Note: Deleting similar values in the Windows Registry could also be the fix to a Code 39 error that appears on a hardware device other than a DVD/CD drive. The UpperFilters/LowerFilters tutorial linked above will show you what you need to do.
