Vwin32(01)+00000714 to device "0009" Service 1

I receive the blue screen message Invalid Vxd dynamic link call from VWIN32(01)+00000714 to device "0009" service 1 when trying to start Windows 98. Their answer is to run setup again. That doesn't work. Can you tell me how to fix this problem and what caused it.

It will start in safe mode. I have removed every single device. It won't add all of them them back because of the error. It still starts in safe mode.

Inside of safe mode, you will need your Windows 98 CD, do the following :
Note : Try system after each step

1) Start->Run and enter SFC.  This will run the System File Checker.

2) Run Scandisk inside of Start->Program->System Tools

3) Reboot to the Command prompt only, <ctrl> after memory post.  At the prompt enter SCANREG /FIX

4) Inside of Windows 98 Safe Mode, Start->Run and enter MSCONFIG.  This will run the configuration utility for Windows 98.  Inside of here start by clicking advanced and set the VGA mode to standard 16 colors.

Other then above, I have no other suggestions.  You can play inside of MSCONFIG and disable other items until it boots normally.

are there or were there any SCSI devices involved?    does  device 0009   ring  any  bells?

m4000Author Commented:
I really don't know if any scsi devices were added. I haven't seen signs of them but it is possible. I don't know what device "0009" is. If I did I probably would know what it is.

I meant like a SCSI  hard drive, cd rom or scanner that has  an internal  card  or  some  thing  that  would  require  a SCSI  ID  #  (  i belive  that  they  are  #'rd  0 through  7  but  maybe  as  high as  9....just  a hunch....have  you  tried  reloading  from scractch?  ( i.e.   re fdisk  and  format  the HDD  and then reinstall  98 )......just  wondering

There are no scsi devices.
I want to find the problem, if just to help others with this problem. Repartition,reformat and reinstall is a last resort but it may come to that.
I have run SFC with no errors.
I have run scandisk with no errors.
I am running scanreg /fix.
It has been stuck on 95% for about an hour.

couple more questions....
were there any bad sectors on the HDD at all?   have you  tried the scanreg  with  the /restore switch?  it may offer different results....I recall a procedure that we used  at the Proteva support job I had  called Fortec...If  I recall correctly  it is run off  the windows/system directory It is done similarly to scanreg except it installs the first copy of the registry that was made...I was told this is what enables OEM manufactures to install all sorts of software yet not have to fill out the consumer info upon the initial boot-up......try searching the 98 disk for fortec and it has to be run from safe mode:command prompt only, I belive.   something like C: windows/system/fortec/fortec~1

  Sorry,  I know  I am grasping at straws here..if you would like I will get the exact instructions for the fortec procedure  ..I do know  it is better than  almost any other method of restoring the registry
let me know

There were not any bad sectors.
I ran the scanreg /fix. It came back telling me I had uncorrectable errors in my system files. I went back into safe mode and reran sfc with no errors. Now I'm rerunning scanreg /fix. If this doesn't work I'll try the other ways and see what happens. I'll get back to ya'll.

Just to let you know.
After running sfc and rerunning scanreg /fix It gave me the same results of system file errors. I took your suggestion of scanreg /restore and it worked. I went back to a previos registry. I still don't know what solved the problem but I do appreciate your assistance. Thanks a bunch.

No problem...glad to help...I'm still curious what the mysterious device 0009 is....( we may never know )...back in your original question you stated " their suggestion was to run setup again"  is  "they"  Microsoft?  because they of all peaple should be able to decipher their own error mssgs.  and at  least narrow down the issue.....anyway,  Glad that worked
