System freezing

My system freezes up, no keyboard control or mouse movement. After much diagnostic testing the only way I can get it to function properly is to remove "system.drv=pnpdrvr.drv" line from my system.ini file. Can anyone help?

Hi

Get current drivers for your video card. Then change the video driver to the Standard VGA driver with 16 colors. Reboot. Install the correct drivers and you should be home free.

SFC may not restore pnpdrv.drv, because the list that SFC check is small.

Huseyin1, he doesn't have any problem with video.  The problem is in pnp detection for  changes in the system.

George, you may want to look at the BIOS PnP setting and set it to the opposite what you have now to see if it would work for you, before replacing the PnPdrv.drv which as I stated in my earlier post that it may be corrupted.

I'd like to thank all for thier input. I have tried your suggestions, most of them before I posted the original question, however none of them corrected my problem. But I think I may have stumbled on to the solution. I was researching this problem on the internet and found an issue with some similarity, while reading through it it suggested that I remove "PCI BUS" from my device manager and reinstall it, stating something to the effect that the pci bus was hogging my memory. So I did it and WALA my system is working fine. I'm going to extensively test it further to make sure but things look good right now.
Thanks Agian
George

FYI: when I reinstalled the pci bus it asked if I wanted to keep the current file, I said no so it would load a new one from the CD.
