Windows 7: Atipcie.sys locking up on Safe Mode Boot

Atipcie.sys locking up on Safe Mode Boot

Decided to do some scanning in safe mode as it is mentioned in Troubleshooting Windows 7. I have noticed it before but never took the time to ask. When loading in safe mode it stops at the AtiPcie.sys loading for a long time.
I am wondering if this has anything to do with my problems of not consistently loading and locking on a cold boot start?

I have done more research on this problem and found that the specific file is dated 1999. I have tried several AMD updates that add Catalyst Monitor and none have replaced that file. The latest legacy update was from 1/21/13. Also it still hangs up in safe mode start.
Safe mode sfc /scannow have not showed any issues. Is there a way to uninstall it and get Windows to grab a replacement?
Thanks for any assistance!

Windows crashed. Now can't boot, even in repair mode or safe mode.
Let me open by saying I'm too old to understand most of the jargon and directions found in a technical forum like this. I've been trying to fix this myself for about two weeks, and have made so many changes, I've probably made a complete hash of it. The latest thing I did was to attempt a...
