Re: ATI2MTAG.SYS error in windows xp

This issue might occur if a system thread generates an exception that the error handler does not catch. This exception can be caused by any of the following:
  • If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup or after Setup is complete, the computer might not have sufficient hard disk space to run Windows XP.
  • The computer BIOS might be incompatible with Windows XP, or it might have to be updated.
  • The video adapter drivers might be incompatible with Windows XP.
  • A device driver or a system service might be damaged.
  • If the issue is associated with the Win32k.sys file, it might be caused by a third-party remote control program.

hi,
I think I found the solution.You must uninstall graphic card drivers from manufacturers site. Use Driver Cleaner 3 and do it in a SAFE MODE!Next, you have to mod CATALYST 8.6,They are stable on ours Windows XP SP3. It works ok now,ASUS should change these drivers on their site.

Re: ATI2MTAG.SYS error in windows xp

If you have updated the video adapter drivers and the problem persists, or if you cannot start Windows in safe mode, the problem might be caused by a different, unsigned driver. Remove all drivers.if removing unsigned drivers does not resolve the issue, try moving all third-party driver files from the %Windir%\System32\Drivers folder to a different location
