    Help!!
    In trying to resolve a conflict with the Windows 2000 pro OS (resulting in a reduced screen size) I have managed to disable the existing vga setting. The result is a blue screen and this error message:
    "STOP: 0x000000B4 The Video Driver Failed to Initialize".

    Although the computer appears to boot up, that's as far as it goes. It then states that it's dumping physical memory - turns off and then starts to boot up again.
    I've pressed F8 at start-up and attempted to return to last known good configuration, I've tried safe mode, vga mode the lot, but I can't seem to break the 'cycle' mentioned above.

    I'm reasonably literate, but not a techy...can anyone make a suggestion?
    Thanks:)

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/240369 seems to fit the bill???? Apart from the not working in safe mode either, but.......... worth a try.

    You might have to disable the Port on a Laptop as you may not be able to change the address in the BIOS.
    You should be able to re-enable it once the drivers are back properly if you need it.
