Fatal Exception error involving VCOMM
Posted on 2000-01-19
Ever since Y2K, my computer has been giving me problems. First my Quicken software was running very slow. I logged on to this site and found out that others were having the same problem and that Intuit and Symantec had patches to fix the problem. Well now my Quicken software runs fine. I also updated my Windows 98 software with those recommended by Microsoft.
The problem I am currently having is that when my computer first boots up I receive a Fatal Exception error. The specific error message is "fatal exception (0E:Page fault) has occurred at 0028:C0280607 in VXD VCOMM(04) + 00000B67. Sometimes I just get a blank screen come up after my opening Window is shown. I have Norton Utilities running so the Crash Guard message comes up. If I hit the escape key Windows will finish loading. The numbers listed in the error message are not the same when I turn on my computer at other times.
In regards to my Palm IIIx, I am not able to Hotsync anymore. When I get into the PDA software to try and work in the Hotsync Manager portion, the fatal error message comes up again. Again hitting the escape key will get me back to Windows.
Anybody know what is going on and how I can fix it?
