Default Behavior

Intel SoC GPIO Controller Driver is a kernel device driver. In Windows 10 it is starting only if the user, an application or another service starts it. If Intel SoC GPIO Controller Driver fails to start, the failure details are being recorded into Event Log. Then Windows 10 will start up and notify the user that the GPIO service has failed to start due to the error.

1. Run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

2. Copy the command below, paste it into the command window and press ENTER:
