When I start it in safe mode command prom. It stops at driver agp.440 and goes blue screen on me. Is there a way to side step this diver. I rigth in thinking this is part of the AVG anti-virus program. If it is this 2nd time it has done this to this computer. I need a good and free anti-virus. I know I was able to side step the loading of the AVG the last time but, can not remember how I did it.

HELP!

Are you able to boot into normal mode at all?If so then run the AVG Removal tool in the link below,

Then install Avast free.

Hello -

Problems when Windows XP tries to load the Agp440.sys service

Please read this Full explanation above from Microsoft - It is not a problem with AVG -It relates to the Graphics system file for XP -

Thank You -

Hello again -
You can also try a chkdsk /r scan, but this may not repair the problem fully, as the agp.440 driver may be corrupted or missing.

Do you have, or have access to your XP CD ??
You will need the same version as the version you have installed (XP Home / Pro / Media Edition) the Service Pack update is not important for now.

To replace the Graphics driver agp.440, it is on the CD, and can be repaired with a sfc /scannow
Type, or Copy/Paste sfc /scannow into Run Box, click OK or press Enter, and insert the Genuine XP CD when requested.

This will run a System File Check, and should replace / repair the Graphics driver agp.440 -

Any further questions, please post back -

Thank You -
Extra - There may be other methods if a CD cannot be located, but the above method is the way Microsoft say to do this -

Yep tried that.... the PC just acts like there is no CD/DVD drive. I seem to remember that the drive had failed on it just before I stopped using it. I have not use or should say no one has used that PC for 6 mth or more. Just tried to get it back up for some games on it, pic's on it and for the 7 year old to use. Her older sis has a net book and she is left out. Is there any way other than using the cd drive.

Hi -
I will see if there is another way around this for you -
I need to go to my "Real job" for a few hours, so someone may drop in, or I will get back after that --

Thanks -

Hi - Back from a long callout last night -
It is almost looking like a Repair install, as I am almost out of other ideas :huh:

One often followed tutorial from Admin @ GeeksToGo >>
http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/138-how-to-repair-windows-xp/page__view__findpost__p__489

Or create your own Repair CD from this link below >>
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic450649.html/page__view__findpost__p__2671214

If none of these are usable, we need to update all drivers via your Device Manager -

Are you able to please post a snapshot with Speccy ??
Publish a Snapshot using Speccy =<< Directions

Regards -
