I have a Dell Dimension 8300 running at 2.8Ghz with 532Mb Ram. When I attempt to boot up I get
the "Blue Screen" with the following message:


A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: Ati2dvag

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, Restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
The device driver got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates a problem with the device
itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly.

Please check with your hardware device vendor for any driver updates.

Technical Information:
***Stop: OX000000EA (OX82866570, OX828BD7A0, OXF8A9DCBC, OXO0000001)

Ati2dvag
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.


I can only boot up in "Safe Mode" and cannot access the internet or devices such as
printer, scanner, etc..

I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP ANYONE CAN OFFER! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
