Ati2dvag seems to have a problem with XP SP3
I don't know if you have SP3, but if you do, try rolling back to SP2

Method 1: Use the "Add or Remove Programs" item in Control Panel
1. Open the Control Panel
2. Select Add Remove Programs
3. Click to select the Show Updates check box.
4. Click Windows XP Service Pack 3, and then click Remove.
5. Click Finish to restart the computer after the removal process is complete.
Method 2: Use the hidden $NtServicePackUninstall$ folder
1. Click Start, click Run, type c:\windows\$NtServicePackUninstall$\spuninst\spuninst.exe in the Open box, and then click OK.
2. When the Windows XP Service Pack 3 Removal Wizard starts, click Next.
3. Follow the instructions on the screen to remove Windows XP SP3.
Method 3: Use the System Restore and select a restore point prior to SP3

THERE'S GOT TO BE A SOLUTION TO MY LAPTOP PROBLEM,I KEEP GETTING THIS MESSAGE, "THE COMPUTER RESTARTED UNEXPECTEDLY OR AN UNEXPECTED ERROR. WINDOWS INSTALLATION CANNOT PROCEED TO INSTALL WINDOWS,...


The problem is caused by a damaged Windows installation CD.
There are some files that cannot be read from CD, so Windows gets stuck.
It tries to restart to continue with installation, and keeps doing this on an endless loop.

Solution:
Get a goos Windows Installation CD and start from scratch, (format and load the new copy of Windows)

Ati2dvag infinite loop how do I fix this


This seems to be a problem with the video card driver as ati2dvag is a part of it. What you could do is go into safe mode. Insert the drivers disc for your video. Reinstall the driver for your video card.

To go to safe mode just restart the computer and continuously pres f8 until you see the advanced options menu then press the arrow keys to highlight safe mode. Then press enter.

Original setup was interrupted


press F8 key (just after BIOS screen) at the next cold reboot and you will see a DOS screen with 3 or more options. Read each of them and I think you will see one option is to resume setup. This option places the system at a safe entry point to continue the setup. Another option may read "cancel setup and restore previous system"...this one may be used if you cannot get the "resume setup" option after repeated tries.

Ati2dvag caught in a loop


These kind of problems can be caused by a number of different things, from software to dodgy ram, PSU etc etc. I'll assume you've already done a virus and adware scan-if not, do it now. If that doesn't work, let's start with the easiest to diagnose and fix-the device driver itself. Download the latest version of the Ati catalyst driver from Ati. Uninstall the existing driver(Assuming you're using Windows XP, Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, then find the Ati graphics driver on the list and remove it), remove the grapics cards entries from Device Manager(Start>Control Panel>System>Hardware>Device Manager, then click the cross next to "Display Adaptors", right click and choose "uninstall"), and reboot into safe mode (tap F8 at POST screen). Run drivercleaner in safe mode (you can download it from here): http://www.driverheavendownloads.net/ then reboot, cancel the "Found New Hardware Wizard" which pops up when you restart windows, and run the new driver installation program.
