I just moved my XP Pro SP2 hard drive (with system) from an MSI motherboard/Graphics card system to an Intel MB (on-board Intel video). I did an XP Repair as instructed on numerous boards. All is well except for 2 really annoying issues:
1. Upon bootup, just after the Windows desktop appears, I receive the "Error loading nvgpio.dll" message followed (upon clicking the OK button) mostly blank dialog box with a string of "?" and 2 buttons, both with "?" in them. I can click either of the buttons and both boxes disappear until the next boot. I've done everything in every post I've read including using the Driver Cleaner Pro in Safe Mode and going through the Registry using Search to find every reference to nVidia. I still get the popup on boot up.
2. Whenever I shutdown Windows, the system doesn't shutdown, it reboots.

Any help on either of these would be very, very appreciated... esp on #1!

The Logon tab lists all startup items, files and registry entries. You can delete or disable any item by unchecking it.

I'm not sure this would help but you could UNregister the dll.

Here is a page with instructions.


The Autoruns program looks pretty good as well.
