Please visit the following link to solve your problem:
: I have been thinking about this question, and I have a few suggestions:
: If this is a new system, how do you know it's not a hardware problem? Are they overclocking the CPU (meaning they sold you a 300 Mhz processor but are clocking it at 350) some people were having problems with this.
: Are you running a minimum system? meaning only win98 and minimum hardware?
: It would be better to go to a point where it doesn't crash much, and move from there to figure out what it is that is crashing your system.
: Could be a faulty card, or loose IC chips on the motherboard.
: : Hope subject is readable & not too long.
: : Will repeat here just in case....
: : Win98 crash due to fatal exception at 0028:C0240286 in VXD VMM(0E) + 00001286.
: : I get very frequent 'blue screen' crashes (several times an hour) which seem unrelated to hardware temperature because they sometimes happen immediately after boot-up on a completely cold machine.
: : I'm running a 350MHz AMD K6-2 with 64MB RAM. Motherboard has sound and 8MB AGP on-board. Using USB flat-bed scanner and HP 600 colour printer.
: : I have re-installed Win98 from CD several times on top of the existing system, but to no avail: crashes still occur.
: : Can you help please?
