Atisgkaf.sys halted boot sequence

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?

Cheers,

Please send response to adumitre@wm.com because my only consistent access right now is my blackberry.

    I was asking for a solution without the recovery disks, but thanks anyway.

    Did you ever get back into safe mode? I can't seem to get any boot disks to work on my emachine, which is having the same problem described in this thread. The only boot disk that works is the recovery disk that wants to format the drive.
    Any advice?

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.

Boot to safe mode with networking, download the Kaspersky Removal Tool at : http://support.kaspersky.com/1464, remove Kaspersky, reboot and reinstall. Question, What Antivirus did you have originally? Did you use the Anti Virus Removal Tool to remove it before installing Kaspersky? Most Anti Virus use a Removal Tool, obtained from the makers website. It's advised to remove Anti Virus completely with the Removal Tool before installing another.

The boot sequence of the laptop runs through all the options that are set as available in the Bios. The fact it is pointing to the PXE Rom means that it cannot find an operating system on the laptop on the hard drive. Your system restore has failed, possibly because some files have been badly corrupted, potentially the sys.ini file. I'd hazard a guess that this was due to a virus, or similar.
Did you perchance accidentally install something like "antivirus 360" or "windows 2012 antivirus"? These are known malware programmes.
As a solution, your safest bet is to perform a repair install using an OS disc and REPAIR the Windows installation when prompted. If that fails, you should then reinstall windows, which may mean you will lose your data (one way to recover your data prior to this drastic measure, is to remove the hard drive and set it as a slave to another computer and pull off the data, or use a docking station to transfer your files). IF you succeed with the repair as described above, delete the system backup files and run an antivirus to check you have no traces of a virus left. DRWEB can be downloaded from the internet to do this.
IF you have to reformat the drive, google for a freeware file recovery utility, and use this to search for any files that you may have lost in installing windows.
As an alternative, to rescue files, obtain a live Linux CD, which will run from your CD drive and this will allow you access to the files on your hard drive, which you can then recover via a USB flash drive or similar

I have a problem with my laptop acer travelmate 550. Display an error number 0280 previous boot incomplete default configaration used press F1 to resume, F2 to setup


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

Had a virus.put on kaspersky internet security 2011 and now it runs slow


If you had antivirus prior to installing Kaspersky then that could be the issue. Having more than one antivirus causes issues since they scan files that are in use. So when one antivirus scans a file, the other does and they loop causing your computer to slow down.
If that isn't the case, I'd recommend booting into safemode, installing Malwarebytes Antimalware and doing a full scan after you update it. Malwarebytes is free and very good. You can boot into safemode by pressing F8 during startup.

What would make an hp laptop w/windows vista not turn on ,even tho its fully charged


So many things. Does it turn on at all or it just won't boot into Windows? If it doesn't turn on at all, remove the battery and run straight from the power cord. Make sure you are getting power to the computer.If you are getting power and the system turns on, but won't boot into Windows, trying booting into safe mode or using a recovery disk to start at a command shell. Remove the hiberfil.sys file and try to restart. The hiberfil.sys is a hidden system file so you'll need to use the following commands;
attrib -r -s -a -h hiberfil.sys
del hiberfil.sys

Try that. I just fixed a laptop last week and I had to delete the hibernation file in order to get the laptop to boot.

Can someone provide me online recovery disk of gateway 7330gz


You must set the boot sequence of the system to cd/dvd rom first which will enable the system to look for booting files in the disc in the first instance.

In your case your system is booting direct from hard disk. Boot sequence can be changed ib the bios setup of your system.

In some laptop models the restore files can be accessed by pressing function keys while system starting.

I am trying to install Kaspersky and I can't because it is asking to remove the program named AVG8. I tried to with the advice posted on your website but it still is not working.


The first thing you should be aware of is that running two (or more) anti-viruses is often a receipe for disaster. Never install Kaspersky without uninstalling previous installations of anti-virus software, it's not recommended by Kaspersky:http://www.kaspersky.com/faq?chapter=17070...p;qid=169326413.

General removal instructions:

1.Uninstall the anti-virus(es) you have installed via add/remove programsin the controlpanel, then reboot after the uninstall is finished.

2.Next you delete the folder most likely left behind after the uninstall,use explorer to open "Program files" and delete the folder of yourprevious AV, if you get a "In use by other persons or programs" thentry to use a program called Unlocker(free), simply rightclick on the folder and choose "Unlocker" for youroptions to appear. Very useful tool for difficult files/folders btw.You can also use "Search" in Windows to hunt down & delete anyfiles/folders still there after an uninstall. Another thing you coulddo at this stage, is to run a tracks-eraser to remove files not usedand just using HD space, two free tools are: CCleaner (both builds with the Yahoo toolbar and versions without this)

3.Now would be a good time to use a registry cleaner, there are manydifferent vendors, but the one which i find most thorough and safe is RegSupremerun it (use normalmode only, not aggressive), when finished scanningyou rightclick and select "All", then you click "Fix" at the bottom, itwill ask you if you wish to make a backup and you do, just to be safe.

Mostvendors make removal-tools for use after removal via add/removeprograms to remove registry entries/folders, you can contact thesupport of the AV in question for a copy.


Removing Norton (even when it is already uninstalled via add/remove programs)

Nortonremnants is often a source of problems when installing Kaspersky, theseproblems can vary from small and perhaps unnoticed by the user tryingKaspersky for the first time and therefore thinking that it is normalfor Kaspersky to be a little heavy because this is what he/she reads onsome forums, to very severe slowdowns prompting the user to perhapseither contact support or post here at the forum.

Well, the goodnews is that Norton make some very good removal-tools and if you followthe suggestions below, even if they may seem overkill to you, then abetter experience with Kaspersky can almost be guaranteed and withbetter overall system performance to follow in most cases too!

The"bad" news is that you have to uinstall not only Norton AV, alsoSystemWorks, firewall and antispam if you use any of these (these canbe installed again when everything is done, just not Norton AV ofcourse!), however your patience and hardwork will be rewarded with amuch better systemperformance.

If you had 2003-2007 installed you will need the Norton removaltool. You download the tool from here.

You are also encouraged to use a general registry cleaner like RegSupreme,this will find and remove a lot of things so don't be alarmed if thenumber of problems found after the scan is several hundreds, thisnormal, most of them is harmless, but there will also be some which isfrom old installations uninstalled long ago, just let it fixeverything, it will ask if you want to backup and you want this, justin case. Download a fresh copy of Microsoft Windows Script for XP .......or Microsoft Windows Script for W2000 (Vista users should skip this step), Norton sometimes messes with this during an uninstall, so you may as well update this too.

1. Now you uninstall Norton via add/remove programs in the controlpanel, then reboot after the uninstall is finished.

2.Next you delete the folder most likely left behind after the uninstall,use explorer to open "Program files" and delete the folder of yourprevious AV, if you get a "In use by other persons or programs" thentry to use a program called Unlocker(Free), simply rightclick on the folder and choose "Unlocker" for youroptions to appear. Very useful tool for difficult files/folders btw.You may find folders from programs you have deleted long ago, you mightas well delete them while you are in there anyway. You can also use"Search" in Windows to hunt down & delete any files/folders stillthere after an uninstall

3. Now you run the Norton removal-tool.

4.Run RegSupreme (use normalmode only, not aggressive) and fix what itfinds. (rightclick after scan is finished and select "All", then click"Fix" at the bottom or rightclick again & select "Fix")

5. Reinstall Microsoft Windows Script and reboot. You're now finished and can install Kaspersky. (Vista users should skip this step)
