    Hi everyone,

    I am having problems with invalid page faults in Windows 98 ( 4.10.1998).

    I have pasted some of the error messages below, along with what I was doing when they occured. The problem does not seem to be program specifiic, and it's erratic and not consistent. The computer seems to be working fine otherwise, it's just annyoing getting all of these messages, and when the error message box is closed, it will close whatever folder I had open.

    I recently installed an updated version of "A squared" trojan scanner, but I think I had the probelm before that.

    I was recenty having the same problem described by "keytech" at this forum link...

    http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=81916&page=12

    I changed the AutoExec.bat file per AuoCADS instructions at their link here...

    http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/item?siteID=123112&id=2878545&linkID=2502464

    I made all of the changes recommended at the Autodesk link above, and it seemed to take care of the problem. The programs I have are old and unsuported, plus I don't know if its related to the AutoExec.bat change anyway. I have pasted a text copy of my AutoExec.bat file below, just in case.

    The aforementioned changes are the only changes I made recently, and the only thing I can think of off hand that may be playing a role in the problems.

    I would appreciate any help or advice anyone can offer as to what this problem might be, and how I might fix it .

    Thanks for your help.

    Sincerely,
    John

    Hi everyone,

    Well, now it seems I have made this proglem worse. I tried a registry cleaner called registry mechanica and it had a feature to compact the registry. Like a fool, I clicked on it to see what the options were, but then it said I had to restart my computer. I did not see any other way to proceed, so I restarted and the windows registry checker began to rebuild the registry. It did not work and I had to restore and older but good version of the registry and the computer seemed to work fine (other than the original error message).

    However, when I restarted the computer again, the windows registry checker took over once again. It said "repairing system.dat file", then "looking for valid registry keys" then, "checking system registry structer", then "rebuilding registry" which took forever. It does this everytime I restart now, and once the thing starts running, it seems to run OK, except that the system resources seem low and I have the same error message as before. It takes forever to start though, and I don't know how much longer it will keep going unless I can find a way to help the situation.

    After it was done, it said it found an error in the system files that it was unable to fix. It said I could uninstall some files from the windows directory (it did not say which ones) to see if that would help, and if that did not work, I would have to reinstall windows in a different directory.

    Is there some way I can keep the registry checker from starting and rebuilding the registry every time the computer starts ? I don't know why it is doing that every time it starts.

    Also, How do I install Windows in a different directory ? What do I do with the original copy in the original directory ? Do I have to uninstall and/or reinstall all of my software if I do this ?

    This has turned into quite a nightmare, I really needed my computer over the next few days to meet some deadlines and it has started to fail me just when I needed it the most.

    I would hate to have to reformat this computer, I would really appreciate any help or suggestions on how to deal with this short of reformating.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Sincerely,
    John

    Hi everyone,

    I purchased a new emachines T6528 computer today for around $430.00. Perhaps not the best brand, but I needed something at a reasonable price and I needed to get a computer quick for some work I needed to finish up. It seemed to me that this was better than continuing to fool with the old windows 98 computer. It seemed to me a reformat was probably inevitable ?

    However, I now need to transfer some of my old files to CD and then put them on the new computer. The problem is, I am getting an error message when I try to burn the files to CD.

    The error message is "missing win-aspi file" " no adapters". I downloaded a winaspi file from http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?winaspi and put it in C:\program files\ahead\nero\winaspi32.dll but it did not help. Ahead Nero would not recognize it.

    I also tried burning a cd with the program "deep burner". Both programs failed.

    I have my most important documents already backed up to CD, but I would really like to get other information, emails, etc.. transferred to the new computer.

    Is it possible to get the computer / CD burner working decent enough just to transfer the needed files to CD and then put them on my new computer ? After that, I could reformat the old computer and/or turn it into a Linux box.

    In the future, I will probably be responding via the new computer, and I will have to connect the LCD monitor to the old computer to attempt to fix the CD burning problem, and transfer the needed files to CD (I only have one monitor). It takes about 15 minutes just to start the old computer because of the aforementioned problems.

    Thanks again for your help.

    Sincerely,
    John

    Hi,

    I was able to uninstall ahead nero, then reinstall it on my old computer. After the reinstallation, Nero worked without the error messge. I was able to transfer all of my data from the old computer to the new one. The old computer kept running out of RAM durning backups, & I had to keep rebooting which took 15 minutes each time, but I finally got all the backups done (took all day and most of the night).

    Even though the new computer is not top of the line, it's much better & faster than the older computer. It's much more pleaseurable to use.

    Glad this nightmare is over.

    Sincerely,
    John
