 Blue screen on loading Win98 017F:BFF72170 Post a Reply  
From: Joe on 04/21/2003
Booted the machine this morning and everything seemed to be loading fine. Typical Window Screen shot with the blue/white bar scrolling across the bottom of the screen and then just when Windows should complete loading I get fatal exception 017F:BFF72170 Any idea what is could be?

Did the 3 finger solute, machine booted in safe mode, then shut down and started again fine.

I never had this problem and I am a little worried since the machine is about 3 years old and I run it 13 hours a day 6 days a week. It is a 300Mhz with 2 SCSI drive and 512K of ram.

Hope to get a new PC in another month or two with XP Pro but need this one to last me a little longer. Any help / insight of what is with this fatal exception would be appreciated.

Windows 98 is famous for this problem, and alot of other OE exception errors. An 0E exception is a Windows Page Fault and relates to memory. A page fault also occurs when a paging protection rule is violated (when a page retrieve fails, or data retrieved is invalid, or the code that issued the fault broke the protection rule for the processor).
This indicates most likely an invalid instruction was encountered, which can be caused by just about anything in the system. It's like asking what makes a car crash? Just as there are many causes for a car crash, there are many possible answers for a fatal exception error.
First, try a scandisk or checkdisk. If you have alot of music or photos on your computer or programs you don't use frequently, remove them through the Control Panel. Then, defrag your system.
