Occasionally I get an error message that says "Unable to find/load vmm32.vxd. Strike any key to continue" when I start my computer in the morning. When I do hit any key the computer shuts down.  I restart it and it asks me if I want to start in "safe mode."  I do so and after everything is loaded I shut it down through the start button and power up again.  Then, the computer starts as it should.  Any help?

This problem started just after I installed a SCSI card and software to operate a scanner.

VMM32.vxd is a virtual device driver for memory management. it has got nothing to do with your scanner. either the RAM chips in your system have an error or your registry has some errors. preferably try to repair your registry.

that should solve most of the problem. in case u can overwrite the vmm32.vxd with a copy from a friends system that sd also make it work. or uninstall the printer drivers n reinstall them.

I also found a solution on the web site of the manufacturer of the scanner (Umax) that may help.  I am testing both.

Thanks
