    Hallo. I've been having frequent blue screens whenever i start my win98. The errors that occur vary, e.g "A fatal exception OE has occurred at 0028:c0033d27 in VxD VFAT". I've tried changing the VGA card, and still i get the same problem.

    Hi and welcome.

    Can you post your startup items?

    Start button, run, then type msinfo32 and hit ok...go to software, startups, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste.

    I had that same problem with my very very very old system. People told me that I could be my memory and that I should replace it others told me I had a bad install. Others told me it could be my vid card at any rate I ended up braking the thing.

    The system had a cyrix 6x86 mx chip with 32 megs and a voodo3 card. I did not have any problems when installing the vid card. This problem just started hapening at random.

    How about doing a memory test using DocMemory as instructed here...

    http://www.simmtester.com/page/products/doc/download.asp

    Have it run a couple of "burnin" loops before pressing esc to terminate. A fail will definitely indicate problems, although passes are not always conclusive.

    'sometimes' - reloading the bios defaults will help with that sort of thing.

    Kamah, could you give us a more complete look at your startup configuration using the StartupList application from the site below. Just download, unzip and run it. Then copy/paste the results to a reply.

    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/

    And could you tell us what you know about this installation?

    WinVNC Registry (Machine Service) "C:\PROGRAM FILES\REALVNC\WINVNC\WINVNC.EXE" -service

    If the problem is due to software conflicts, this is something I would expect to be a loose cannon.

    You might also want to uncheck this in msconfig > startup for test purposes:

    onictask.exe

    Give us a Startuplist post first though.

    Hallo again, I managed to download the startuplist application file, but when i try to run it, i get an error message "a required .DLL file, MSVBVM60.DLL, was not found." I have unistalled the winzip that i'm using and installed a latest version, but still i get the same error. I ran the same startuplist file on another machine and i get good results- its responding.

    Regarding the installation of WinVNC Registry (Machine Service) "C:\PROGRAM FILES\REALVNC\WINVNC\WINVNC.EXE" -service, its a program i'm using VNC for remote access to another machine. The program is working fine- not giving me any problems. While installing it, i got an option to register the program as a machine service i.e in the registry, which i accepted.

    I've noticed that when my PC's casing is closed, the whole PC over heats and suddenly the errors occur. I've undertaken a couple of tests, whereby i leave the casing open for the whole day and i don't get this problem. I've checked the cooling system and its working fine.
    Now i don't know whether its a hardware problem or a software problem. Your help will be highly appreciated.:confused:

    As for the the overheating problem, i think i'll follow AcaCandy's suggestion...for now... before i install an additional fan. Please look into my startup list, maybe something is a miss. Thank you good people for all you help.
