AutoCAD 14.01 and Windows 95

I have had AutoCAD 14.01 on a Windows 95 machine.  This machine is a Gateway Destination Pentium 233Mhz.

AutoCAD has been there for the past 6 months and since last month, it has been crashing out everytime.  When I say crash, I mean a blue screen comes up saying the following, "A fatal exception OD has
occured at 0137:00005EB7. The current application will be terminated."  (It blue screens at the same address everytime)

I've tried a clean reinstallation of AutoCAD there(clean meaning uninstalling first, deleting its AutoCAD folders, and installing it again).

I was going to attempt to install Windows NT on this machine because I know ACAD is more stable with NT.  Problem is that a lot of the stuff that comes with the Destination system such as the TV tuner does not have NT drivers.

Any suggestions?  Thanks.

Ok, uninstall ACAD.
Delete all files in c:\windows\temp
Delete Temp internet files
Run Regclean (www.download.com)
Run Scandisk (Std. then Through)
Reinstall ACAD.

Thanks for the comment.  I haven't had a chance to try your suggestions because the Destination is constantly being used.  However, I did run a Full ScanDisk on the machine and it came out with a clean bill of health(no file problems nor disk errors).  I'll keep you posted.

Just wondering, do you get an e-mail notification like I do when I or somebody else post a comment?  Thanks.

My guess is that you have developed a memory module error.  Unfortunately AutoCAD WRITES TO THE SAME MEMORY ADDRESS EVERY TIME IT IS RUN.  My first thought was to have your memory modules tested (which includes a replacement if necessary), second install Windows '98 (this is a I hope it works solution).

Yes it sends an e-mail.
Another thing to try is ctrl-alt-del before installing ACAD and remove everything except systray and explorer. (also before running ACAD)

Sorry that it's taken so long, but it looks like caddex, you're right.  All I did is I replaced the memory module and it hasn't crashed.  Thanks.
