I recently had a recommended update to Intel® Iris™ and HD graphics Driver for Windows 7/8/8.1* 64 bit version 126.96.36.199.3345 (10.18.10.3345).
Upon the reset, I got stuck in a loop of the compute trying to solve a problem, which it later determined it can not identify. After about an hour of begging, I managed to get my computer to run by disabling the driver signature enforcement. At this point, it seems to run perfectly fine. But it does not reset normally. I need to go through this boot process every time I try to turn on my computer. So I go online, and eventually I find out the "Root Cause" of the problem is that Boot Critical File has been corrupted. (Namely, C:\Windows\System32\drivers\hpdskflt.sys is corrupt. This here is as far as my skills can go. I tried changing the driver, it had no effect. I'm stuck with this corrupt file, but hopefully not permanently. I think I read that it could be the registry, but I have literally almost zero idea what that means.
Can anyone help?
I am sorry to hear that have had issues after updating to the latest video drivers.
I see some forums point to hpdskflt as a HP file for the hard drive. I recommend trying to load the latest video drivers by performing manual installation. See here for instructions:
Also check with HP support for additional information about hpdskflt file.
