    Hi

    Every now and then I get an error message that a GPF has occurred in GDI.exe at 0001:0001bn9.

    The usual enter to return to Windows then brings up a series of similar error messages, always ending in having to shut the system down and rebooting. I am running a 433 Celeron with 384 MB RAM and Me.

    GDI.exe handles graphics related resources and functions. It rather sounds like you may be running something which is depleting graphics related system resources and causing the error. These particular resources are fixed and independent of the amount of ram installed. You can monitor system resources by placing a shortcut to the resource meter in your programs/startup folder. I think it's best to try to keep it above 25% when running. But you should have 85-90% free at boot up.

    This conflict with HP printer drivers may applly to WinME as well:
