  2. This usually applies to USB mice and Joysticks. Have you made sure your
    device drivers are up to date? Also, go to Device Manager and look for any
    red or yellow warnings as these may indicate which device is specifically
    causing the problem. Open Control Panel, open System, go to the Hardware
    tab, click Device Manager.

    Hi Bob,

    The following error will occur if any of the three files (hidserv.dll,
    mouhid.sys and mouclass.sys) are missing.

    Could not start the Human Interface Device Access service on Local
    Computer. Error 126: the specified module could not be found

    Extract hidserv.dll, mouhid.sys and mouclass.sys from drivers.cab in the
    Windows XP CD to "<Systemroot>\Windows\System32\" to fix the issue.

    1.Insert Windows XP Setup CD.
    2.Browse to <CD-ROM>:\i386\drivers.cab
    3.Double click the drivers.cab file. The compressed files in the Cab file
    will be listed.
    4.Copy the three files to <SystemRoot>\windows\system32\. Reboot the
    computer.

    The Human Interface Device Access service will then be started.

    I had the 126 module not found problem and tried everything without success, until I found a solution for my case, the value of the registry key had an empty space before the actual data, wrong value: " %SystemRoot%\System32\hidserv.dll" and the correct value should have been " %SystemRoot%\System32\hidserv.dll" that's why the system couldn't find the .dll, I have no idea how that happened since it was working fine and then stopped, I guess it's just Microsh*t for a change.
