I followed these instructions for fixing the ati2dvag infinite loop problem, and it did nothing for me. I have a Dell Dimension E510, and as of last night whenever I turn on my computer it goes straight to a blue screen saying that I've got a ati2dvag infinite loop error. I really want to fix this! My computer is practically brand new. I'm in safe mode right now. :thumbsup:

Right click-mouse over My Computer
Properties
Hardware(Tab)
Device Manager(button)
Click [+] next to System devices
right-mouse on CPU to AGP Controller (or whatever your controller is called, mine was SiS AGP)
Update Driver(button)

Select Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)
Next(button)
Select Don't search. I will choose the driver to install.
Next(button)
Select PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge
Next(button)
Finish(button)
Reboot.

If you have a Dell:
Instead of looking for the CPU to AGP controller, look for
"A2801 PCI bridge"

Did you install the latest driver from Dell?

I forgot to mention that I did go to PCI bridge, instead of AGP Controller (which wasn't there) and it still didn't work.

Any tips?

The infinite loop is a general message that posts to your system.
The message is directly related to your Video Card adapter-driver but it is not specifically just one issue.

Do you have the most recent drivers for your chipset?

See if Dell has a patch available.

Also get the newest drivers for the video card - the drivers on the cd that came with it may not be the newest ones.

Be sure to uninstall your ATI drivers before you install the newest versions.

Your video card.

Some may have a second wire connecting them.
