 0E : 016F : BFF9B3D4, windows ME and my new GeForc Post a Reply  
From: Togashi on 12/01/2002
Hi, I've recently installed a new GeForce 4Ti 4200 (with 4.13.01.4072 drivers) into my Dell Demension 4100 (a P3 866 with 512 RAM and running Windows ME). Also, I've recently updated my OS to the current version (it had gone unupdated since late 2000) which includes IE 6.0.

Periodically, my PC will go into 'fits' of having explorer crash/hang (not IE, but explorer). This is typically associated with me attempting to launch a browser or open the 'my competer' icon. When this happens, my browser will not finish loading the page, and will hang. I then must 'control-alt-del' and kill explorer (which may tell me it's not responding, depending on how long I wait to do this), once that is done, the browser loads the page, though I must then click on 'restore my active desktop'. The cycle seems to repeat itself ad nauseum for some indeterminate amount of time, and then goes away for periods.

These issues were not present before the hardware/software upgrade/update.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Over-installs of operating systems (ie, windows XP upgrade without removing previous operating system) can cause these types of problems. You may have the remanants of an older driver in your system and it is conflicting with a newer version. Make sure to completely uninstall older versions.

It is quite possible that this may be a result of something different. It is unlikely but possible. I have actually never seen this particular variant of the BFF error message. Expecially with the 016F prefix.

Sorry I was not much help.

I am getting the same problems wil an ATI 9000 Radeon card (new install). Latest drivers don't improve matters. Lots of problems with explorer and opening extra windows on IE. Any suggestions welcome !

Sorry, I was sick yesterday and I guess I was a little harsh.

The error message is related to your video card. By Windows 9X, I mean Windows 95, 98, 98SE, and ME. They all exhibit the same error message (starts with 'BFF').

I am not sure if anyone has really been able to find an exact source of the problem. Some theorize that the card does not get enough power at times but I am not sure that theory is accurate.

I would try the newest driver you can find. If that does not work, try to lower the performance of the card. If that does not work, return it and get a new video card (not a GeForce-type card).

Ahh, thanks, guess I thought there would be a difference in solutions as I am running ME, not XP and have a GeForce 4 4200, not GeForce 2 MX400.

Sorry for the extra post,

Read the board.

Need new video card or better drivers. As a matter of fact, the post just below yours has the EXACT same problems as yours. This problem directly stems from the GeForce 400 series video cards and Win9X operating systems.

Check this out before you post, please.
