I have loaded Win95 as clean as I can. No CD Rom, No Sound Card, and No Modem. Once I proceed to add software or install one of these devices, the computer gives one of two of the following message at boot up (After the Win95 Blue Sky Screen):
1) "Windows protection error. You need to restart your computer" At restart I enter Win95 in safe mode.
2) "While initializing V86MMGR an error occured. Insufficient memory to load windows. Quit 1 or more memory resident programs or remove TSR's in autoexec.bat and config.sys."
Computer: P-100 in a Tyan Titan III w/256 cache
32MB EDO RAM. Award BIOS.
So far loaded the system with virtualy nothing and it worked fine until I attempted to load MS Office or the modem or the sound card.
I also tried removing autoexec.bat and config.sys and the system worked fine until I installed the modem.
Please help as I have loaded Win95 many many many times and have never encountered this problem.
