XP: This happens when i FIRST BOOT the PC

marcolopes
Hi.

When i BOOT the PC for the first time (after some hours OFF) i get this:


The description for Event ID ( 108 ) in Source ( ati2mtag ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: \Device\Video0, display, ati2dvag.

STRANGE is, once i reboot again, EVERYTHING is FINE!
SAME thing happens when i RESUME from overnight Hibernation...

Any ideas WHY this happens when the PC comes back to life after SOME hours?

    battery losing CMOS data - it'd help to know the operating system and hardware in use and what the devil a at12mtag is - from the title I'd assume this to be something to do with an ATI graphics card that needs special drivers to display anything at all - sometimes happens with laptops.

    I'd also check the Device Manager to see what it has to say about the video card. You could also try reinstalling the video card drivers, or getting the latest from the manufacturer and installing that - it may fix the problem.

    Make sure S.M.A.R.T is enabled in BIOS. Run a diagnostic on your hard drive - these are available from the Hard Drive Manufacturer's site. You may also have picked up spyware or a Trojan Horse.
