|Subject:||Shutdown/Restart ORA-01033 and IO Errors|

I have inherited a vendor supported database.
Environment is :
ORACLE V126.96.36.199.1 - Production vsnsta=0
Windows 2000 Version 5.2 Service Pack 1, CPU type 586
The database is constantly giving me an "ORA-01033 ORACLE initialization or
shutdown in progress" regadless of what I try.
The folks who turned it over to me had been trying to rectify the problem by
rebooting the machine repeatedly.
I have attempted to shut it down by using oradim with the immediate option.
Upon looking in the alert log I discover the following:
Tue Nov 07 05:00:12 2006
alter database open
Tue Nov 07 05:00:13 2006
Errors in file D:\oradata\pcpw\LOG\pcpwLGWR.TRC:
ORA-01110: data file 12: 'D:\ORADATA\DBNAME\DBNAME.DBF'
ORA-01114: IO error writing block to file 12 (block # 1)
ORA-27072: skgfdisp: I/O error
OSD-04008: WriteFile() failure, unable to write to file
O/S-Error: (OS 5) Access is denied.
Wondering what steps I might take to rectify this.
Thanks in advance for your helpful advice.
