V86MMGR Error

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.

Thank-you

The V86MMGR is the file that is the virtual 8086-mode Memory Manager.  What is happening is that a driver is not being recognized by the base element of your system.

Go to Microsoft's home page  --  http://microsoft.com  and choose the support option and download  Article ID: Q137335  and  ARTICLE-ID: Q140441.  The first will explain in great detail about what is happening and the second will show how to determine the proper solution for individual situations
