The 0x00000002 or DEVICE_QUEUE_NOT_BUSY error is a rare one, and it usually indicates that a device installed in the system is malfunctioning. This error is typically associated with Windows 2000.

How to fix:

  1. Check Installed Hardware: Identify any hardware that was recently installed in your system. If the error began after a new piece of hardware was added, that could be the root cause.
  2. Replace or Reinstall the Hardware: If you’ve identified the problematic hardware, try to replace it or reinstall it. Ensure that you’re installing it correctly and that the hardware is compatible with your Windows system.
  3. Update Device Drivers: Outdated or incompatible drivers could also be the cause of this issue. Make sure all your device drivers, especially the one related to the identified problematic hardware, are up-to-date.
  4. Use System Restore: If the error persists even after trying the above methods, you could use System Restore to roll back your system to a state where it was functioning well.
  5. Seek Professional Help: If none of the above steps resolve the issue, it might be best to get assistance from Microsoft Support or from a professional technician.

Again, ensure that you have a recent backup of your important data before attempting to troubleshoot this error, to avoid any potential data loss.
