I have a new Pentium II 300, Asus P2B Motherboard (BX chipset), 128M SDRAM PC100 memory chip, Maxtor 7G hard drive, Mitsumi 1.44, Toshiba 32x CD, and Matrox MGA PCI video card. No other cards are installed.
When installing Windows 95 OSR2.1, at the point where it normally says something like configuring items in control panel, I get an error that says "Regsrv32 performed an illegal operation." Details said "regserv32 caused an invalid page fault in module oleaut32.dll at 0137:7ff0fd18"
I clicked ok and the install continued normally. Then I installed the PIIX4 patch program. The first time I tried to run the patch program, I got an error that said "Access violation at address 0041586F. Read of address 00AB13A8." Without doing anything else, I ran it again and it seemed to work. Now I can't get into control panel or device manager at all. If I right click on My Computer, I get "rundll32 caused an invalid page fault in module shell32.dll at 0137:7fddb9a0" If I use start, settings, control panel, or double-click on control panel in My computer, I get "explorer caused an invalid page fault in module shell32.dll at 1037:7fddb9a0"
This is the 4th time trying to install 95 on this computer. I am getting so frustrated. I need some fresh input on this problem. I need to get this computer working by Saturday.
