Angry 9800 Pro prob!!!

Hey guys, I am having a big problem with my 9800pro 128MB. It is made by sapphire. I guess the driver files messed up. The pc wont boot to windows, after the line with the load bar, I get a blue screen (of death) that says windows couldnt start (or run) ati2dvag. It also says that it has gone into a loophole and cant start windows. I have unistalled my drivers (in safe mode) and tryed to install new drivers without any luck,...same problem. I am running winXP SP2. HELP!!!!

Did you get your drivers from ATi or Sapphire?

Sapphire's drivers are not as up to date as ATi.

You are having a problem regarding the display drivers, however that doesn't mean it is the actual drivers itself. There is a conflict happening. Have you recently installed SP2?

No... Don't get Sapphire's drivers. Regardless if they are the manufacturer, get your drivers from ATi directly.
