Windows cannot start this hardware device. (Code 19)

A registry problem was detected.

This can occur when more than one service is defined for a device, if there is a failure opening the service subkey, or if the driver name cannot be obtained from the service subkey. Try these options:

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard. Click Uninstall, and then click Scan for hardware changes to load a usable driver. Restart the computer in Safe Mode, and then select Last Known Good Configuration. This rolls back to the most recent successful registry configuration.

    For one on my VISTA SP2 machine I have no "troubleshoot" option from the "General" tab for the device. So this "solution" is useless.

    I have Vista Home edition. When I click the "Check for solutions" button all I get is "Could not load driver" window. It doesn't give me any solutions to correct this problem. I've already done a system recovery reboot. The furthest date goes back 1 month. I still have this same problem.
