I had my master card replaced (Pentium Explorer 2 VX) but now when I am in windows 95 for a few minutes, I get a message (Traducted from  french)Protection error in windows, press a key to re-start. I can't see anything wrong. Have any idea where to look. My sytem is a Cyrix P200+, 32 mgs ram. Alro

Do you have a 3COM nic card?  If so get the new driver from 3com and see if that corrects your problem.

I assume master card = motherboard?

Did you get the motherboard swapped for an identical one? If not, this could be the problem. I would guess that the problem is at motherboard level...

Look at control panel, system. Are there any unknown devices?
If there are, try first an autodetect new devices. Even this won´t  work examine what kind of device is shown as unknown and install the driver for this device.

Restart the computer and get into the setup of the bios, on in there goto load setup default values to correct any memory timing issues and or cache settings.  A windows protection error most of the time can be traced back to incorrect bios settings.

Did you reinstall windows after the new motherboard? If not then do it. Also make sure that the drive cables for the HD are good and secure. I have the same problem and I found that I had a bad ide cable to the hard drive.

aszure, yes, but I am thinking that the motherboard it self has a problem, I re-formatted the hard disk and re-started a new, all kinds of probems arrived, so we will return to the store that did the job and have him repair. Alro
