floors-squeeky wood floor

In my house, along a inside wall in a small room the floor squeeks when walked on. The floor is vinyl on top of 3/8" particle board screwed (in approx. 6-9" intervals) to 3/4" tongue-in-groove plywood. The plywood is glued and nailed to the floor joists. The joists are 2x8 spaces at 16" and span about 8'. The joists are fastened to a 2x12 with joist hangars (using 16d nails) on the side that squeeks. However, between the 2x12 and the hangar is 5/8" wall board(drywall). Any ideas on how to fix this? I can easily get under the floor through the crawl space. Thanks
