PCI.SYS corrupt? Hi. i just installed a new bios for my mobo. i restarted it and it comes up with an error. File pci.sys corrupt. It doesnt let me get into my windows xp home OS. I researched the topic, but they all say that i need windows xp setup cd. unfortunately, i bought my hard drive with xp on it. is there another way? i have a seperate windows xp professional cd, but when i try to boot with that, nothing happens. WHAT CAN I DO?!? if need be, i can wipe my hard drive, i already have everything backed up, but not sure if that will work or how to do that.

    no. i disconnected all of my pci cards(pci, pci-e x16, everything) i even switched out my 2 ram modules to see if it was a ram problem. but nothing so far. i have my laptop rite next to me rite now. is there a way i can copy the pci.sys from my laptop to the desktop hardrive? if not, i mite as well just "borrow" a copy of xp professional from the internet and reformat.

New motherboard GA-p67x-ud3-b3 no video on boot


  1. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
    * For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot.
  2. 1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x8 (PCIEX8)
    * The PCIEX8 slot shares bandwidth with the PCIEX16 slot. When the PCIEX8 slot is populated, the PCIEX16 slot will operate at up to x8 mode.
  3. 3 x PCI Express x1 slots
    (All PCI Express slots conform to PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
  4. 2 x PCI slots

I have installed a P5KPL-AM IN/GB Motherboard from which it will not install Windows XP from CD. It Boots up normally then stops with a message "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down...


this could be a wealth of issues. check to see if all the hardware is compatible with the new mobo. if you're not sure try disconnecting different bits of hardware to see if you can get past the system error.
go into the bios and make sure the cd drive is listed as the first device in boot priority

PCI-E recognition issue on intial start up ASUS P5GC-MX/1333


To solve this problem you have to do the following things in the series.

first remove all the extra cards and then connect to the onboard vga connector. then start the sys and go to bios settings. if you know the advanced adjustments then
correct them as follows. otherwise just select load optimized settings.

first go to the video card selection in advanced
and then set the setting to pci/pciinternal or pciint/pci ext

then set the pallette snooping to yes.
shutdown system

place graphics card and then donot change any setting. then you'll get the display.

i have the same motherboard and i also faced this once. it is not a problem it is just misconfiguration.

Unexpectedly lost graphics, but theres a story to the issue.


You mentioned that you disabled the on-board graphics card using the device mamager.
You should disable the on-board video card in the BIOS.
Go to the BIOS config and disable the Video.

So..


Hi tmomonet, did you install you're PCI-E video card in the correct slot? Open you're manual to page 2-18. Once you have gone over that part of you're manual you will need to enter the bios to check some settings so you're video card boots with the system. (Please make sure you're PCI-E video card is installed fully into the PCI-E blue slot). (Some PCI-E cards also need extra power, if youre's does it will have a power connector on the rear of the card).
Once into the bios, open you're manual to page 4-20. Open PCIPnP. Than go to page 4-26. At the bottom of the page you will see, Primary Display Adapter. Change to PCI-E & not to PCI.
Save & exit the bios. You should gain video display. Once windows finishes loading, install your video card software.


Good Luck!
Mike

I can see you getting an error with pci.sys but not with pcy.sys.
Did a full system scan in a working WinXP Pro & found not such animal within the system or regestry. After looking through microsoft I did come across pci.sys and what may creat such an error. I would point to your onboard VGA. If intergrated into the board as I suspect. It is a pci device. During install windows found something wrong with it hence your error & blue screen. Suggest using your PCIE card & set bios to same disabling the VGA. Your install should no longer fail.
Good luck & please vote!

Did you insert the sata driver disks when prompted in the first stages of installation? I think it's mentioned as scsi drivers.
