    When I try to boot in safe mode windows hangs on windows/system32/drivers/amdagp.sys. I did a search here first and found a possible solution. A poster stated that if you just delete the file it will fix the problem. I hate to admit it but how would you go about deleting the file. Is there a program that will boot and allow me to access to my NTFS C: drive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    www.boodisk.com should have a file for you to boot to 'DOS'

    But instead of deleting it, rename the file to amdagp.old

    The boot disk worked and I renamed the file, but it just hung up on another file. I renamed that one too, but it just hung up on something else. Anyone have any suggestions.

    Why are you trying to boot in safe mode
    (ps noticed the error, should have been www.bootdisk.com)
