I just recently upgraded my sons system from a pent75 to a cyrix m2 333 system i pulled all the components out of his old system including the hard drives and the old 2x cd rom. I installed several new components as well including a ati rage 128 16 meg video card a soundblaster live value audio card and a generic lucent chipset modem. I installed all this in a brand new barebones case with a Microstar ms5169 ver 2.5 mb.
the problem began after i installed all the components into the case and booted up the existing hd's with the previous installation of win 98 from the old system almost immeidiately I got general protection faults as soon as windows booted then i would get windows protection faults upon reboot then i finally reformatted the hd and reinstalled win 98 almost immediately after windows started detecting hardware i got a fatal exception error message od at 013f:00000b22 i keep creeping farther and farther along with each reboot I installed a cd rom driver in dos which might be part of the problem but ive never had that conflict before HELP

This should clean it up without all the hassle.

Win95/98 Registry Rebuild

Rebuild the registry itself with REGEDIT. To do this, restart the computer
in MS-DOS mode-REGEDIT will do only what you need it to in DOS mode while
the registry is closed.

1) Export the current registry into a text file by running the following
from within the Windows directory: REGEDIT /L:SYSTEM.DAT /R:USER.DAT /E
FULLBAK.REG This will force REGEDIT to parse the registry and dump its raw
contents to the text file FULLBAK.REG.

2) Make a backup directory and move your USER.DAT and SYSTEM.DAT into that
directory so REGEDIT cannot find them. (This step is just a precation. I've
never seen a situation where this trick doesn't work, but there's alway a
first, and now you'll have a backup.)

3) Recreate the registry and running the command: REGEDIT /L:SYSTEM.DAT
/R:USER.DAT /C FULLBAK.REG

4) Reboot and voila! A registry free of corruption (but not necessarily
free of dead wood).

You can also in Win95 export the entire registry and later double click it
to install it. But this only works on an already running machine.

If you are doing this on a network, you can use your NT Server to backup
the registry via NET USE, then AT (time) REGEDIT /L:SYSTEM.DAT /R:USER.DAT
/E FULLBAK.REG
copy fullbak.reg to your backup area and copy it to tape or CD.

generally, when changing motherboards, it is best just to go in and install windows over the top of itself.....
just put in the cd and run setup normally.....this will overwrite all of the important stuff and leave your data alone.  usually this will take care of all of the fatal exceptions....
also, the live could be giving you some of this trouble because of the cyrix processor.  Those processors had a problem with the FPU (floating point unit)...in other words, they just won't handle all of the math involved in doing 3D sound and graphics.

It's not your motherboard that is the problem, its the windows settings.  New motherboards have TONS of settings that can cause conflicts if setup incorrectly.  When you switch them out, you can expect at least one or two settings will conflict with older ones.  The best idea would be to install Windows on the drive after formatting it.  However, you may not want to deal with that much work, so you can install Windows over top of the current install to keep all old programs and settings while updating hardware configurations and settings.

actually i may have stumbled across the problem myself. recently i switched the mb cpu voltage settings on a whim apparently the processor im using supports two seperate voltage settings
i had it set to the lower of the two when it gave me all the problems switching to the higher voltage seems to have solved the problem,
thanks all who tried to help.
