Error Code 19 RRS feed

  • Question

  • There is an error code 19 which states "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration is incomplete or damaged"  What does this mean? And have I destroyed my new laptop by accident?

  • You haven’t ‘destroyed’ the laptop, but a device isn’t working. Go to Device Manager and click on the icon for Scan for hardware changes.
