I am getting this error when I try to boot:
While initializing device VKD:
Windows protection error. You need to restart your computer.
I am using Windows 98SE. This occurs on normal startup and on safe mode as well.
I can start in command prompt mode, but not step-by-step.
After reviewing similar problems, I have tried these things:
Using scanreg to restore the registry to an earlier known good time.
Using scandisk to check the disk.
Removing and shuffling the three memory modules.
None of these have any effect.
I have not recently installed anything.
Another, probably useless, piece of information: trying alt-ctl-del after this message sometimes
restarts and sometimes doesn't. Sometimes a restart results in a dimming of the monitor, and
sometimes results in the standard garbage from memory/display memory overlap. My graphics
card is a NVidia PNY Verto GeForce 4 MX 4000 PCI.
Any help would really be appreciated.
