    The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device ROOT\WPD\0000?

    I am seeing several of these Warnings in the Event Viewer, Windows System logs. These are Event ID 219, Source Kernel-PnP.

    That said, I am not experiencing any crashes, freezes, BSODs, and everything on my PC seems to be functional. So perhaps I can safely ignore these warnings, but I prefer to get to the bottom of something in case it will lead to problems in the future.

    I have done some online research on this event, and none of the suggested fixes seem applicable to me. I have been vigilant in keeping all drivers on my machine up to date. I've checked, and there don't seem to be any newer drivers available for any of my hardware. I also have the Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework service set to "automatic" startup.

    The details of this event are below.

    Any suggested action to remedy my problem? Thanks!

    Go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc, right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags? If so, these devices need drivers installed. Usually your video card driver.

    Thanks for your reply and the info. Not sure why I didn't find that article myself.

    Good info. I don't see any yellow flags in Device Manager. nVidia video card driver is definitely installed. Looking at the Event Log, it appears these warnings always occur at system startup. Per the article, "this event happens randomly at times due to latency issues associated at system boot up." Given all that, it seems this is nothing I need to worry about.

    Thanks again

    Check out this MS answers exchange: it is focused on USB stuff (you didn't provide basic error message description text in your original posting, so I'm assuming it could be but isn't necessarily related). Does sound like a root hub discovery/drive loading error, though... The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device - Microsoft Community
