A Fatal Error Has Occurred in VXD VMCPD

I'm using an AMD K2 300/
why do I get "A Fatal Error Has Occurred in VXD VMCPD" after system is booted and at various times?
1 Solution
The VMCPD handles Floating point exceptions when a coprocessor is present. This error may indicate a problem with your processor, especially if you have overclocked it.

Check these 2 Technet articles on this Error.


You may want to install DirectX6 on your system, or reinstall it if you are already using it.


Hope this helps,
