I am working on a system Avado Celeron 400 with a 8G Western Digital hd, 32M. It start having a problem when booting up; Error:Himem.sys has detected unreliable xmx memory address at 00c10c06.
Himem.sys is missing. Make sure that the file is in your Windows directory.
I verified the file was there and I also replaced the file with no luck. I even reinstalled win98 but then Windows protection errors occurred which would lock the system during bootup. I finally decided to start from scratch and fdisked and formatted the drive and placed Fat32 on hd. I boot the system from the win98 cdrom (second edition) and reinstalled windows. It ran though installation and then it required system to reboot. When it reboot it came up with an error. MSGSRV32 This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down. In the details section is said MSGSRV32 caused a segment not present fault in module MSGSRV32.exe at (memory address). I rebooted the system and it ran though scandisk and found an error which it said it repaired but now the blue screen of death appears An exception OE has occurred at 0028:25206325 in Vxd--This was called from 0028:c000b511 in Vxd---It may be possible to continue normally and it locks there. When i try to go into safe mode that himem.sys error occurs. Himem.sys is missing. Make sure that the file is in your windows directory. Windows has stopped. Press ctrl+alt+delete to restart your computer. How can i install windows without any probs.
