W95 - machine slow - often crashes System indicates failure with yellow circle
Posted on 2000-03-17
PC AST Bravo MS-T 5133 working with W95 and within a TokenRing network. The PC is definitly working, but slow some times.
PC indicates failure in the setup: System units; Maincard extension for the PnP BIOS. Units in conflict. The PC is rather slow and often crashes - needing reboot. System Info ver. 1.8.1 gives "LoadFailed" for ndis2sup.vxd, ebios, vshare, EBIOS, and NIOS.vxd. Possible reason: corrupt EBIOS-chip (if there is a such chip in the PC?)
Yellow circle with exclamation suggest memory areas in conflict as to the use of the ATI Graphics Pro Turbo (mach64). Had once an incident with black lines crossing the screen using graphics in Excel. Downloaded and reinstalled new videocard driver and the problem was solved. Installation not perfect? Areas specified: 0000 0000-0009 FFFF, 0010 0000-01FF FFFF, 000F 0000-000F FFFF, 4000 0000-400F FFFF and FFFE 0000-FFFF FFFF. The whole VMM system and some vxd-s not as they should be?
Thanks in advance. acefanno
