I have been experiencing lots of blue screens of death, with si3112r.sys driver implicated. I am able to boot up in safe mode, but in normal mode there is the BSOD before I get chance to change anything. Now, I was advised that the problem was with the driver, and it should be replaced. In device manager, if I try to reinstall the driver I get the message that the existing driver is ok, and I cant work out what to do. Do I uninstall the driver first?. I tried renaming the existing (corrupt?) driver xxxxxx.old and copied the driver over from a floppy, but the result was my machine wouldnt boot up at all in either safe mode or normal. Can someone please advise me what to do. Thanx. N.

    si3112r.sys is SATA HDD driver. It looks like you have a problem with your HDD. Try to use another SATA cable or another SATA port. Try to check HDD on another comp.

    Hi Thanks Silentez. I have transferred the drive to another PC, and it wont boot at all (It appears as master on channel 5 in the bios at start up). I have tried exchanging cables, and using another port. I have tried system restore, and that fails too. Eachtime I boot I get as far as the final seconds when the desktop appears for a second or two, and then the blue screen. I got my data off it by setting it up as the second drive in another machine. All went well with the data transfer. Thanks. N.
