A colleague mucked about with my laptop and the following error has occured:-
Cannot find a device file thay may be needed to run windows or a windows application.

The windows registry or SYSTEM.INI refers to this device file, but the device file no longer exists.

If you deleted this file on purpose, try uninstalling the associated application using its uninstall or setup program.

If you still want to use the application associated with this device file, try reinstalling that application to replace the missing file

msodisup.vxd

The OS is windows 98, but I have no disc because I brought of a friend a couple of years ago.

Please help if you can!!!

This is what it is-maybe someone on the forum can give you some pointers-Windows ODI to NDIS Mapper.-means nothing to me.

I have downloaded the vxd but don't know what to do now!!

unzip it and copy it to the folder c:\windows\system32

Then reboot. Its a networking file

I have done the above but it won't let me change the pixels (currently 640 by 480 instead of 1024 by 768) and the colors are only 16, what now?

Have a look in control panel, System, Device Manager, Display adaptor, and see what graphic card you have.

You may then be able to find the driver set for this on the web, and re-install.
