Default Behavior

The HyperVideo service is a kernel device driver. In Windows 8 it will not be started until the user starts it. If HyperVideo fails to load or initialize, Windows 8 startup proceeds. The error details should be added to Event Log without notifying the user.

Restore Default Startup Configuration for HyperVideo

1. Run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

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

sc config HyperVideo start= demand

3. Close the command window and restart the computer.

The HyperVideo service is using the HyperVideo.sys file that is located in the %WinDir%\system32\DRIVERS folder. If the file is corrupted or deleted, you can put it back in there.
