How do I fix these errors while trying start Virtual Box?


I commanded 'vagrant up' on my terminal, to login my virtual CentoOS7 server then,I got these errors.

Just before I tried to up vagrant, I was customizing my vim editor on CentOS7 server on my vagrant. and then, I sat some important document. maybe it caused this error... and I found similar question on the web but I couldn't fix it.

There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant
for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below.

Command: ["startvm", "6f113832-832d-4fd6-ba87-af003b3dddce", "--type", "headless"]

Stderr: VBoxManage: error: Could not open the medium '/Users/yamadaasuma/VirtualBox VMs/MyCentOS_default_1551371079969_97354/centos-6.8-x86_64-disk001.vmdk'.
VBoxManage: error: VD: error VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND opening image file '/Users/yamadaasuma/VirtualBox VMs/MyCentOS_default_1551371079969_97354/centos-6.8-x86_64-disk001.vmdk' (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND)
VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component MediumWrap, interface IMedium

And these are the logs from my Virtual Box. Please help me anyone.

I would try to run the following command in CMD as administrator:

sc start vboxdrv

According to this forum post:

A complete reinstall of VirtualBox fixed the issue for some users.
