We introduce two general hybrid iterative approximation methods (one implicit and one explicit) for finding a fixed point of a nonexpansive mapping which solving the variational inequality generated by two strongly positive bounded linear operators. Strong convergence theorems of the proposed iterative methods are obtained in a reflexive Banach space which admits a weakly continuous duality mapping. The results presented in this paper improve and extend the corresponding results announced by Marino and Xu (2006), Wangkeeree et al. (in press), and Ceng et al. (2009).
