IDE 80 GB internal drive, model ST380011A
Did diags, 100% functional.

Driver corrupted? When I run the system in safe mode, it now stops at the file above. After 10 minutes of attempts to boot, system finally succeeds.

Here is where th SAFE mode stops each time:

/drivers/agpcpq.sys each time

Dell Dimension 3000, 80 GB IDE drive internal. XP Pro, 512 MB RAM.

Suggestions?

From what I can find it appear to be the vido driver. Check the Event Viewer in the Administrative tools.

Thanks. I loaded a new video driver earlier today, and that had no effect on the problem.

Related problem below ?????

I have run all hardware diags, chkdsk, and hours worth of tests. I cannot get defrag to run. It simply shows an hourglass for 5 seconds, the application comes up and says " Not responding ".

Thoughts?

Run scandisk (checkdisk)

Make sure you have the latest version of the bios

Thanks again. Already ran chkdsk before I attempted defrag. Defrag did not work, " NOT responding ". Don't think this is going to be solved by a BIOS update. I wish it were, but don't think so.
