Device Io Fail

  Willfixit 22:35 21 Sep 06

Can anyone advise why I get the following message when windows Xp pro starts.

DeviceIoControl Fail(GET_VGA_CLK_FREQ)

After installing windows XP PRO plus motherboard and graphic card drivers, if I continue to install more software the system eventually bombs out and refuses to start altogether then I have to start complete reinstall.


System details
Gigabyte GA-8NSLI Royal motherboard
Gigabyte X800XL PCI-E 256 DDR
P4 3.4 Ghz
2 x 1Gb DDR2 memory
Liteon DVDRW + DVD
Maxtor SATA 300Gb
