System

Win98SE
Celeron 400
320 Mb

Sometimes (getting more often) when i bootup i get as far as showing my desktop wall paper and get this BSOD

Fatal error

0E at 0028:co280f04 in VXD VMM(06)+00004f04

So far i have done:

Scandisc - no problems

Run SFC - no errors found

SCANREG - no error found

SPYBOT system internals - no problems

I run AVG, spybot s&d, adaware SE1.05, spyware guard, spyware blaster, so i am pretty convinced no problems there. These have all being running alonside each other for sometime so dont think the problem is there.

Sometimes it take multiple reboots to make it work. Any ideas?? or is this a terminal problem.

Hi,

Usually blue screen errors are related to RAM.

Try replacing the RAM in the machine and see if it helps with the problem. If so, then you know that it was the RAM that was the problem.

Else, if you have the time, try testing your memory.You can use a memory tester such as Memtest86 found at http://www.memtest86.com/ if you have a CD burner to create a bootable CD, or http://hcidesign.com/memtest/download.html if you do not have a CD burner.

Regards,

Dave.
