Invalid page faults & fatal exceptions- why?
Posted on 1997-07-16
All too frequently I'm stopped dead in my tracks by invalid page faults, often (but not always) related to module KERNEL32.dll. In more extreme instances, I get the dreaded Fatal Exception blue screen & I must reboot. Then, sometimes when I reboot, I get a Windows Protection Error (cannot initialize device CONFIGMG). So then I go back & forth to safe mode, which sometimes gets me back to normal mode, & other times I just turn the system off & go get some coffee until everything cools off & I can usually get going again.
I notice a considerable number of other users get these problems, but have found precious little useful information that explains what causes these errors & how they can be avoided. Can anyone enlighten me? Are these software problems? Device conflicts or other hardware problems? Lets see, I'm using a Supermicro HX motherboard w/ 64 mb EDO, Windows 95, Future Domain PCI SCSI controller, 2 recent Seagate HDs (set as primary master & secondary master) & one SCSI drive, NEC SCSI cd-rom, SCSI zip drive, sound card, and #9 imagine 128 video. I've reformatted the primary master drive, pulled all the peripherals & reinstalled them after reinstalling Win95, set my mouse & video to standard serial & standard VGA (to try to isolate a device problem), ran BurnIn to try to identify hardware or memory problems (it didn't find any). I'll pay all my points for an answer.
