    Could someone help me please???? When I start my computer everything seems to load up fine. When I enter my password I get a box that say Registry Problem
    Windows encountered an error accessing the system registry. You should restore the registry now and restart........
    and it has a button at the bottom that say restore from backup and restart. I am unable to click this button. I tried to restart my computer and change the boot sequence to start from the A drive and it will not. I have a floppy rescue registry disk but I do not know how to get the computer to read it. Can anyone help me fix this problem?:confused:

    Sorry to hear that.

    What is the exact text of your fatal exception?

    Bad RAM can cause both that reg error and the vcache error. Go here and Download Doc Memory, Run it to test your RAM or try swapping it out if you have more than one stick of RAM to isolate the problem.

    Vcache vxd errors are often caused by faulty RAM.

    Try checking with DocMemory or a similar app.

    Other things to try are:

    - Disable external cache:

    If your CPU utilizes external cache attempt to disable it temporarily to verify if it is causing your GPF error messages. If available you will be able to disable your external cache through CMOS (in the BIOS).

    - lower your Video Resolution a little to see whether that makes a difference.

    Good luck,
