I am so tired of these Fatal Exception Errors. I use only Windows 2000 or XP and never get the F.E. Errors so you can see my frustrations... These operating systems have an 'event viewer' that can tell you exactly what is occuring and not cause you to restart your computer.
First off, all I know is that you are working with either win95, win98SE or winME. These are the only OS's that come with Gateway 2000 computers that I am aware of. Unless you changed the Operating System....
Your error message is a little unusual. Usually, you will see the error code start with something like OE 0028:blah blah...
This would lead me to believe that you recently installed software (could even be 'freeware or shareware') or hardware that is now causing the computer to have problems. It is best to think on a timeline and figure out what has recently changed to your computer before you started getting the error messages.
How 'bout Microsoft World Atlas? Do you have that installed? That can cause an error message very similar to what you are getting. You indicated 'is closing the current application'. What were you in?
Did you error message end like 'in VxD IFSMGR'? If so, they you do have Microsoft World Atlas installed.
1)Click the Start button, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2)Double-click System, and then click the Device Manager tab.
3)Double-click CD-ROM, and then double-click your installed CD-ROM device.
4)On the Settings tab of the CD-ROM Properties sheet, clear the check box next to the Disconnect option.
5)Click OK or Close.
6)Restart your computer when you are prompted.
You will have to post back a be a little more specific to what your error message is saying, your computer configuration, and what application your are running when you get the error.
