Windows 95 hangs with blue death screen :

"An exception OE has occured at 0028:C00IE476 in VxD IOS(01)+0000113A.
This was called from 0028:CII465IC in VxD HSFLOP(03)+00000CD8. It may be possible to continue normally."

when i trying to access, copy or format floppy disk. Even if I boot in command prompt only, computer hangs when trying to copy files from floppy disk.

Computer is 486DX2 80Mhz, 16Mb of RAM and 540Mb Quantum SCSI HDD, SCSI Controller Always 2000 with floppy disk controller,CDROM Wearnes CDD 110 with controller.

I added another floppy disk controller, changed floppy, changed cable, but computer dont work with floppy disk.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This could be caused by some corrupt VXD-file or other. I would try to remove the HSFLOp VXD-file and remove the floopy from the list of devices in Control panel - System and then restart the PC and see if it installs a new floppy and new "non-corrupt" VXD files.

Hope you find something in there,


It's a hardware problem.

Did you also try a normal ide floppy?  Did you try to connect it to the fdd port on your motherboard?  Are you sure that the cables are firmly connected and that they are seated in the right way?  Did it used to work before?
