Question about E-Machines M5305 Notebook
Just installed Kaspersky antivirus on my laptop and after deleting the "first" suspect file, the machine kept trying to reboot and failed. When I tried to boot to safe mode, it stops at the "atisgkaf.sys" in the load sequence.
Am I toast?
Can I correct the problem without unearthing my recovery disks (if I infact have any ... I seem to recall the info was on the harddrive but I may not have created any disks ... oops).
Is there a boot disk I can find which will use the info on the machine?
Please send response to firstname.lastname@example.org because my only consistent access right now is my blackberry.
I'm working on the same problem.
The ati sys file is the video driver for the ati graphics card.
Not sure if we can remove it and let windows manage the XGA with a generic driver.
Some posts metion problem with the onboard non-removeable memory modules. My BSOD says something about beginning dump of physical memory no matter what chip I put in and also with no chip (just onboard).
Since laptops have heat issues and sneaky weak soldering on the ram and video chips it's bound to be a bad video or onboard ram chip.
Should be a workaround. I'm going to try to renaming or disabling the ati driver and see if it boots. Problem right now is getting back into safe mode. Will try to boot with CD support after I restore the registry files.

Recovery or restore, after unistalling the Kaspersky antivirus.

Possible that PC is hanging up as there is fault on the OS ( operating system) or a virus in the OS. Also it is possible that the back up( CMOS) has low voltage or the memory card is a suspect. In this case you need to check the voltage and also try and swap a memory card. If not the OS is a suspect.
It is best to go for a paid antivirus software which you can get in a package. Personally we are not recommending any particular company but you can try with Avira, Antivir, AVG, Kaspersky. It is always best to install the antivirus when the installation of the OS is done.
Now before this you can open the internet options in the browser and clean all the cookies, temporary internet files, defragment the drives and RESTORE the PC to an earlier set date.
You can use a registry cleaner like Advanced system care. Download from the site and check you system for corrupt files. Also use a good antivirus software which is active to keep your system performing without an attack on the OS. Remove all unnecessary programs installed which you do not use all the time and clean up the drives. This will free up the space and make your system faster.
If there is no response but the PC tends to work slower and occasionally hanging when a program is being executed then you might have to install the OS once again. Install the OS and then an antivirus before the drivers of the PC is installed.
Thank You for using Fixya
