Cheap SCSI and protection faults
Posted on 1997-11-28
Although ive checked and double checked IRQ´s, memory areas and DMA settings, my SCSI card acts flakey and keeps giving me protection faults when w95 accesses the CDR2600 attached to it during boot-up. Often booting to protected mode and then rebooting solves the problem, but the slightest configuration change knocks the card over and i have to re-install. The card does work if i give it some "space" in my crowded system by de-installing various components, but strangely it doesnt seem to matter _what_ i de-install (as long as its an ISA component).
1)What is happening when W95 gives a protection fault during boot-up?
2)Any suggestions as to how i can avoid this (given that all "usual" conflicts are apparently cured??)
3)I picked up a similar problem in a NG, and the solution was "adding /d:x to win.com". Is this an idea, what does this do and how do i add this?
