Book Explaining GPFs and Windows 3.1x Errors
Posted on 1998-04-04
My neighbor is running Windows 3.11. A few weeks ago I was able to get his Netscape
Communicator to run, but only after the Microsoft cryptic message, "An error has occured
in your application.......CLOSE or IGNORE". If he clicks IGNORE once or twice or sometimes
3 times (launching Netscape) the dialog box disappears and Netscape runs.
NOW, his mouse won't work during any Windows session. I worked on this
computer from hell before and I believe it is a memory problem, possibly doing
a "waltz" with a COMM port conflict.
I guess this is 2 questions.
Does anybody have any thoughts on what's going on with either the frozen mouse or the
Netscape error message as described above?
Is there any book LEFT out there in the world which will describe, in gory detail,
what causes G.P.F.s and these other cryptic messages and helps correct these
problems(other than Microsoft's standard answer, "Upgrade to Windows95.") ??
