Unstable - Invalid Page Faults
Posted on 1997-02-19
Help! I recently bought a clone machine for my mom & stepdad. It will
not run Win95 without frequent crashes and is driving me nuts!! I think
it's likely a hardware glitch of somekind, but can't figure what!
Crashes frequently - often during the startup process. Explorer is
often the program that hangs, but many others will show up too,
especially if it makes it through the startup and I try to run any
program. No matter what program causes the crash, the error message
ALWAYS refers to an invalid page fault in module <unknown> at one of
The system is a P166 Triton III motherboard with Trident 1M video card,
32M RAM and a WD32500 drive.
What I've done so far:
I tried to remove or disable everything
extraneous to get to lowest common denominator. I've removed all the
extra cards, disabled the CD-ROM & floppy (and the 2nd IDE channel the
CD-ROM is attached to), changed back to standard VGA video driver and it
still exhibits the same problem. I've pulled out the 4 8M SIMMS and swapped them - problem remains the same. Is not even stable in safe mode. BTW,
I did install the driver upgrade for the Intel 82371 IDE controller -
made no difference.
