The Cardex service failed to start????

Dell / Gx260

Specs: Windows XP, 3.2
I am trying to locate a problem with one of my hardware, I think. In my Event Viewer there seem to be an error on sartup saying....
The Cardex service failed to start due to the following error.... Cannot create a file when that file already exits.... event code 7000

I tried finding this hardware, in my command prompt sc query
I think this may be a hardware problem but can not be for certain as there are quiet a few item on the screen.
Is there any better way to isolate this error down so that i can correct it.
My PC was having some issue before and now since i have completely reformated the third time round, this has now come better, however said i do still have some issues intalling some basic item or software that I needed when i was trying to reload this PC.
What I am doing is try to understanding what has casue me some much grief in the past with this machine.
Also please note this machine is not a GX260.... It is now a different PC GX620 dual core with SP3 installed.
Can anyone give me some more helpful suggetion to norrow this item down.
There has to be a better way

Yes I have google it but little has shown up. Nothing to specific. Microsoft has a trouble shooting website but it is very vague? It does specify a few item but way to broad to isolate this perticular problem.

To those who ever have this perticular problem I have finally located this error. It was the software for my video driver Expertool which i unistalled this and it has fixed the problem.
I will leave some links to another posting that I was using to resolve this issue for future reference to whom ever has this similar problem with their PC.
Please read below.

Hi Onin,

Please check if you are using Gainward Expertool especially ver 3.29.
There are many websites which point to this error and advice removing the same due to some or the other issues.

Would advice the same as well.

Meanwhile will try to look out for some more on this.

Good Luck.
