IE v5.00 cause cold boot (BIOS mem check restart)
Posted on 2001-08-04
Running Win98SE 4.10.2222A
Start IE v5.00.2919.6307
Mem 64M SDRAM
During page construction of some pages the PC is cold started (ie BIOS mem check appears).
Peripherals: Matrox M2 AGP v4.11.01.4330
Intel 21140 10/100 v5.01
I have run Norton AV latest on all files
I have run SFC and it reports all OK
I have run scandisk and it finds nothing wrong
I have cleared the IE History & Temp files
I have manually removed IE Temp files missed by above
I have found some pages cause a cold reboot and others are OK. Those that are OK are always OK and those that cause a reboot always cause a reboot.
If I do not use IE then it does not reboot. If I use Outlook2000 all is OK until I click on a link in an email to a website and then depending on the page I will get a reboot.... everytime it does a reboot I see the memcheck so its more than a 'restartt' its a cold start.
Anyone any great ideas on the problem?
