: Isn't it nice how they make these errors human readable? Like something else is going to read them...
: Too bad it didn't tell you what device that was. Sounds like you may have a bad connection to a card or something. Any chance you can remove your cards and clean the connections with a CLEAN pencil eraser? I mean if you have that ability that is, don't mess in there if you don't know what you are doing.
: Also a slim chance it might be a IC on a card that is "popping out" meaning it needs to be pushed back in it's socket. Is the motherboard very old?
: You could also start up in safe mode (press the F2 key as it boots or the F8 key) and do a step by step start up and see where it starts, that might tell you what card is causing the problem (if it's a card).
: Let us know if this works for you.
: : I have a 200mhz Gateway using win95 as operating system
: : In the morning when I start up, win95 begins to load
