Ok, here's a problem I've been dealing with for 2 years...that's when i first built this my machine....aka, Frankenstein. When I boot up, everything is going fine until I get to the "network password" screen. Sometimes things go along smoothly...I hit enter, and things go just fine. Other times, old Frankenstein just freezes, and a black line appears at the top of the screen. If I hit enter at that point, I get the blue screen of death with the following message: " A Fatal Exception OD has occurred at 0028: 00000086. The current application will be terminated. hit any key to continue or cont/alt/delete etc. etc." When I hit any key, nothing happens, but if I do the control/alt/delete twice, It reboots. Sometimes it will run fine, others, I get the same failure. The problem is, the hanging does not happen all the time. I can go many days with no problem, then suddenly it starts again. I am running windows 98 on a amd 1000mz with a abit board. I am about to build a new machine, but I would love to solve this problem, as I hate to be outwitted by a bunch of circuits! Help me out!
