Re: PT unable to require hardware

ALL? Really? Then roll-back to a known-working boot drive image. If you don't have an image, then clean install of Windows.

Re: PT unable to require hardware

To troubleshoot, I'd actually un-install all 3rd party plugs, run CCleaner free version reg & clean passes, and reboot.

Re: PT unable to require hardware

Take boot drive images as you go along...
