Hello my mentors...

Once again I find myself in a quandry with my windows 98se system PIII, 733 mhz

I periodically (more often than not) get the following error:

DDHELP ERROR:

DDHELP caused an invalid page fault in
module NVDD32.DLL at 016f:b00b713f.
Registers:
EAX=e3967000 CS=016f EIP=b00b713f EFLGS=00210282

along with another error i receive referencing run32dll... but i have misplaced my copy of the error. My apologies for not having it to supply to you now.

Basically, my registry appears to be pretty screwed up but I am not familiar with what or how i should go about this and hope you had some advice.

I looked under resources on Bleeping... and did a search but really didn't seem to find the answer I was looking for... thus my need to post.

I appreciate you all always and look forward to hearing from you.

NVDD32.DLL relates to your nvidia drivers, have you updated them recently? My advice is uninstall and either re-install the original drivers that came with your card or download the latest from your card manufacturer or take the latest from nvidia.

Boot into dos and type the following scanreg /fix then scanreg /opt this may correct any problems you have in the registry.

As part of good maintenance for your PC I'd also update and run the following:

Spybot and Adaware plus do a full virus scan of your PC.

I agree with stidyup about the original drivers. Many times with an older system and OS the latest and greatest driver will cause problems.

thank you both. I did update the drive for the nvidia card and got that in place but unfortunately i am still having many lock ups often.

i have run AVG 7.0, Symantec Security scan, Panda, & Trend Micro -
Spysweeper, spyblaster, spybot, spyguard, a2 squared and adaware... each found a little something but when i went to PC Tools site... (found it on Major Geeks) and ran PCTools.com a registry cleaner, checker, restorer etc.. program, well it said i had 683 listings that were amongst the categories on they check.

i was gonna try to subscripe to the program this weekend to get thsi stuff fixed. i see that cnet highly recomments this program and a few other as well but i have never seen this program addresssed on bleeping except in advertisement.

please advise if you have any experience with this. i am kinda stuck and could really use your assistance.

thanks, Patty Burrier

DDHelp is a Direct Draw file so lets check that out. Go to Start and click Run. Type in dxdiag and click Ok. At the bottom of the first tab on the box that comes up it will show your version. Let us know what that is. Run through all the tabs and do all the tests and look at the bottom of each tab for any errors reported. If you get any let us know what they are.

So we need to know your version and any errors reported.

along with another error i receive referencing run32dll


If you see that one again let us know the exact wording of that too.

Okay, I was finally able to get to run the dxdiag the version is:
DxDiag 4.09.0000.0904 32 bit

I checked each tab and each showed no problems.

I dont' believe I have received any errors today of the dll sort but will certainly keep you apprised.

I think that is all you requested from me.

Please know I am grateful for all your help, unfortunately I am one of the numerous Americans that is broke as hell too. I have vowed in the past to make a decent donation to Bleeping if my head is ever above water.

Until then... please know that I feel very blessed to have found you all.

Hope you day is great. Patty Burrier

Try this. Go back to dxdiag and under the Display tab look for Direct Draw Acceleration and click disable. Then go to Windows updates and see if you can get any. After that is done re-enable Direct Draw Acceleration.

Okay, I was finally able to get to run the dxdiag the version is:
DxDiag 4.09.0000.0904 32 bit


Does it not say DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c (4.09.0000.0904 32 bit)?

YES IF THAT IS WHAT DXDIAG BLAH BLAH BLAH MEANS THEN I SUPPOSE IT DOES.

DOES THIS ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS REGARDING MY SITUATION AND AM I FINISHED OR IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD DO.

I DO APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE WITH ME ON SOME OF MY QUESTIONS... BUT I AM KEEPING COPIUS NOTES FROM YOU ALL'S RESPONSES.

I TRY NOT HAVE YOU DO DOUBLE WORK, I JUST NEED THE GUIDENCE TO KNOW WHEN YOU THINK THE PROBLEM IS SOLVED.

I MOST HEARTILY THANK YOU.
