Summary0000429: Mouse and keyboard show no reaction in DOS applications running grafic mode
DescriptionIf I start a DOS (yes I mean DOS :-) application that switch to grafic mode then mouse and keyboard show no reaction in that application. Terminating Speedfan do not fix the problem: I have to reboot (without Speedfan).

I found this problem on 2 systems (running WinXP SP2):
1) MSI K7N2Delta-L (AMD 462), NVidia GeForce2 MX, Winbond W83697(T)HF ISA
2) ASRock K7S41GX (AMD 462), OnBoard SiS 741, Winbond W83697(T)HF ISA

I have deactivated SMBus in options menu.

This is Speedfan information of system 1:
Win9x:NO 64Bit:NO GiveIO:YES SpeedFan:YES
I/O properly initialized
Linked ISA BUS at $0290

Remove or rename GIVEIO.SYS file in c:\windows\system32 and restart SpeedFan.

What does GIVEIO.SYS do and can I remove it without getting problems with other software ?

for my part, i removed giveio.sys, restarted and still get the message in the log windows, "GIVEIO:YES", so I still cant start my dos programs in Full Screen. Only resolvealbe with deinstalling speedfan. Besides, it is v4.28


ps: hope this can be resolved, speedfan is a great program!

ps2: when installing, i get the message: giveio service alrteady running", although it is for 100% not started.

Steff, some other tool must have installed GIVEIO.SYS somewhere else in your system.

Run SpeedFan with /NOGIVEIO command line switch.
