    Windows Event Log fails to start with Error 126: Specified Module could not be found....


    Normally I would look in the Event Log Viewer if a service fails to start but since it's the Event Log Service itself that fails to start, I don't know exactly where to look for what the missing Specified Module is.I ran both dism and sfc /scannow without any problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would create a MS support ticket but because Windows Event Log service isn't working, it caused cascading failures including the Network Location Awareness so the Get Help app keeps insisting it's not connected to the internet.

    computer failed to boot - disk error event id 153 + 98

    Hi, suggest you try Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) - gives a great quick analysis (SSDs too).

    Please post the results.

    Event ID 153:
    This event may be an indication that the specified drive may be failing soon. This is especially true if the event is recorded regularly. The first step is to run the maintenance utilities related to hard drives, starting with CHKDSK and the utilities available from the manufacturer for that specific brand.
