Re: WinXP hangs after loading giveio.sys

My problem is quite similar:

When I start Win XP in Safe Mode it hangs and then restarts after half
a minute after reading giveio.sys.

When I try to run "Windows XP Repair" from the windows CD it stops when
achieving "Examine the disc". This happens as well when trying to
reinstall windows. I.e., I'am not able to format the disc!!

When coupling the disc to another PC (as a slave), the PC will not
boot. It boots windows as normally in the start (from the Master disc),
but then in the middle of the boot sequence, it starts to read the
Slave, and the PC just hangs.

My disc is a SATA 7200 Seagate 200G. When trying to run Seagate
diagnostic tools it hangs when trying to read the disc.

Rest of my system is: MSI KT6V Mainboard, AMD Sempron 2200, Sappire
Radeon 7000 Graphics.

All this started when I moved the cabinet fan from the "cabinet fan
connector" to the "north brigde connector" on the mainboard. I have
tried everything (I thing though...), removing the fan (of cource),
disabeling all that I can think of in the bios, resetting the bios,
removing all unnessesarry hardware etc. I know this is not a windows
system file. Probably it originates from Speedfan or one of the MSI
tools that is being installed.

I realize this is a bit of a bump, but i too am having this problem.
The difference for me is that i hadnt changed any hardware or
anything. I was minding my own buisness usin XP and it suddenly locked
up entirly. I reset it and when it got to loading windows i loaded for
a while and then blue screened. When i tried from safemode it died
after giveio.sys as well.

But logicaly, if it loaded giveio.sys isnt it more likley that the
problem is the next thing it woul load? how could i find out what file
this is?

I ran CHKDSK off of Hirenís Boot CD and it gave back alot of errors in
the NTFS system but once it had corrected those it was able to mount
the NTFS system under DOS.When i tried to run windows again, however,
i still get the same problem.

Any, way im gonna try deleting the file from outside XP and if that
doesnt work ill have to do a repair install. Ill edit this once i have
an update.
