Equium A60-181: Win XP does not start successfully - the BSOD reboot


I have an Equium A60-181 which has an operating system problem.
Loads of XP logo at the beginning, when it happens to show the log on screen, it is a quick blue screen of death error, and it restarts.

I tried to go into safe mode, but it blocks on atisgkaf.sys.

Is that what I can do to save the operating system?

How can I start to diagnose if it's a hardware problem?

Thank you, Lawrence


The atisgkaf.sys file belongs to the graphics card driver.
But as Akuma has proposed, the Windows operating system does not load 3rd party in safe mode drivers.
This is why the ATI graphics card driver should not affect the start-up procedure.

However, this is only my personal hypothesis and believe me; nothing is impossible, so a hardware problem might be possible.

But just a question;
Have you tried to reinstall the OS?
The installation process goes smoothly through the unique installation steps?

I think that the new installation of the operating system is a good idea to find out if it is a hardware or software problem.
Maybe you should try it

  • Win 7 does not start on the Satellite

    So last night, I was using my Toshiba Satellite laptop.
    I know a lot of details because I'm not very good with laptops. Here is where the problems start.

    So after I finished I stopped him.
    The next morning I wake up, he would not start windows.
    I am currently using windows 7. Anyway, he tells me to stop. I start again, and then it gives me only 2 options: Startup Repair or run windows normally.
    When I try run windows normally it says "starting windows", but it never starts.

    Then when I try the startup repair it will attempt to repair and I do for 8 hours and no luck. It is said a recent move of hardware or software can have him cause. But I got nothing except the charger is connected.

  • Problems with my installation of Windows XP and my computer does not start on the CD.

    original title: HELP for the installation of Win XP.

    Hi Jorge,.

    So the only thing I can think is that it is a sort of master/slave thing.

    Your IDE HDD will be a Knight, probably alongside where the power cable is inserted, to dictate whether the player will be considered to be a master, slave, or cable select. Assuming that it is the only HARD drive in the PC, make sure it is designated "master". Then, in the BIOS, make sure that the boot order is specified as HDD0 first (as opposed to HDDx where x is greater than zero).

    In addition, assuming that the data cable is the new type of Ribbon with strands of 80, make sure that the blue connector of the IDE data cable is in the motherboard and that the end of the black connector is in the HARD disk and, if it is a two-disc data cable, do not use the gray connector.

  • Computer does not start after the screen of the bios, Compaq Presario SR1023WM

    Ok. Trying to fix a friend's computer and seem to have met a strange barrier.

    Problem: The computer does not start after the bios screen.

    Details: When you turn on the computer, the compaq logo with intel inside is and has the < F1 Setup > and < F10 System Recovery > options listed as well.  And that's it as far as the computer becomes.  After that the computer just locked up, no work of buttons on the keyboard lights keyboard ect ect.  I tried the puree on the F1 key, as soon as I turn on the computer and I can handle so he can say * entering setup * but it freezes again after this point.  I already tried to eliminate the possible sources of the problem, removed all expansion cards, HDD and Dvd Rom module only disconnected, only memory (256 MB ddr 2700), power, vga and keyboard connected.  Ive also used the jumper on the motherboard to clear the cmos, hoping that would solve the problem without success.  I tried using a different memory stick and different memory as well...  Tried to use both a ps2 and a usb keyboard... Ive even tried pulling the rider for the protection of the bios password (even if she did not have a password on it, just try everything I can think of).

    The installed bios version is 3.1, and that's all that I know on the computer at this point, except that the website tells me to him.

    http://h10025.www1.HP.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=411354 & LC = on & CC = US & DLC = in & Submit.y = 5 & Submit.x = 3 & lang = to & CC = US <-link to the Web page for the model #.

    I'm basically at a loss on this one, so if someone feels scroll line-by-line of their brains on this one, I'd be very happy.

    I have a pretty strong understanding of computer repair, so feel free to give me something to try.

    If you need more information out of me, let me know as well.

    Try to clear the CMOS again but this time remove CMOS battery and hold the power button on a few seconds. Replace the battery, then try to start back to the top.

    At the back of the pc is the condition of the PSU led green or flashing?

  • Satellite Pro L300-21F does not start and the screen remains blank

    L300-21F is aged 18 months, so out of warranty. When you press the power button, you can hear the fan and a "click" but the hard drive does not start and the screen remains blank. The power and the battery on the headlight LEDs, but the switch light does not work. I checked the power supply and it is 19.3V and substituted a good known. Removed the battery, tried with just the power cord and still nothing. Pressing ESC or F2 when you press the button power does not bring to the top of the screen of the bios or any other message. I have concluded there is no power the jury. A friend he had its technology take a look and he concluded Council is probably a friend.

    So my questions are:
    1. He's probably right?
    2. is it a common problem with an easy solution?
    3. what else can do before shelling out for a new Board of Directors?
    4. is there a link where I can find how to disassemble the case?

    Any help appreciated


    > 1. He's probably right?

    Yes, it looks like motherboard failure

    > 2. Is this a common problem with an easy solution?

    If it's a motherboard problem, the whole motherboard is replaced. Quite expensive part...

    > 3. What else can do before shelling out for a new Board of Directors?

    I don't think you can do anything with fried mobo

    > 4. Is there a link where I can find how to disassemble the case?

  • Computer does not start after the screen goes blank &amp; Compaq.


    A few weeks ago, I turned on my PC and it showed at the Compaq screen and then went to a blank screen & would not respond. I held the switch button to turn it off and after 4 attempts, it start fine. Next time, it took 20 attempts to initialize and now it does not start, it will be maybe if I try like 100 times he can do... The problem is when the Compaq screen comes up it comes only for like a second so I know that it does not start, if the Compaq screen stays for a few seconds as 3 + I know it will load windows and start.

    History > the computer originally had XP and has been replaced with VISTA memory was 2 * 512MB, but it was a bit slow and I was advised to upgrade. I bought 2 * 1 GB memory and put it in my PC a few months there may be 5 + had no problem so far.

    I tried the following:

    Remove the memory and replace it. Remove the 2 * 1 GB of memory and its replacement by the Moose 2 * 512MB to check if the memory is at fault.

    Cleaning of the dust around the fan (at this point, I removed the fan over the CPU and cleaned the thermal compound from the CPU to make it nice and shiny, only tried to start one time after that for a few seconds heard blowing fan and turend it took off. Depuis_lors, I realized that it wasn't just muck and had a purpose na derwiche put a little more on)

    Remove the battery of the BIOS for half a day

    Move jumpers CMOS from1, 2 to 2, 3 positions

    I can not get into the same if BIOS start and hold F1 he will show me the BIOS for a second and then go to a black screen.
