hello.

A Fatal Exception 0D has occurred....

The system.ini folder BOOT contains the line DISPLAYDVR=PNPDRVR.DVR.

The driver PNPDRVR.DVR does not exist on the system and it is this line that seems to be causing the P/S2 keyboard system crash problem that has plagued this system from the first day I received it.

By clearing it's check box in MSCONFIG.EXE the system becomes very stable hence this letter. BUT the 256 at 800X600 is, well I'm not getting any work done!

I have since replaced this line in the boot folder with DISPLAYDVR=IALMDVR.DVR from the installation CD that came with the D845GBVL. The result was more and even faster crashes.

Having tried more than 150 different boot settings from within MSCONFIG.EXE, the only change that stops the crashes is when the system.ini boot line DISPLAYDVR=*******.DVR is removed or disbled.

This is the test that I carry out

1. Restart your computer in Safe mode.
2. Click Start, click Run, type "msconfig" (without the quotation marks), and then click OK.
3. Click the System.ini tab, double-click the [boot] branch to expand it, and then right-click Display.drv=Pnpdrvr.drv.
4. Click Clear, click OK, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart your computer.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3.
6. Click Select, click OK, and then click No when you are prompted to restart your computer.
7. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
8. Double-click Display, click the Settings tab, and then click Advanced.
9. Click the Adapter tab, click Change, click Next, and then click "Display a list of all the drivers in a specific location, so you can select the driver you want."
10. Click Next, click the intel 845g/gl driver.
11. Click Next, click Next, and then click Finish.
12. Click Apply, click Close, and then restart your computer.

1. Open a new notepad text window.

2. randomly type at high speed to fill text window.

3. two full screens without a crash is OK

I have just restarted the computer with the Control Panel/ display/ settings /performance/ hardware acceleration reduced most accelerator settings. I have also reduced the colour resolution to 16 bit. Seems stable, however no good for what I need.

I have just then reinstalled the settings from the OEM monitor disk, which changed the display settings from default monitor to the Hitachi CM721F monitor. All still stable at optimum frequency setting 1024x 768 at 16 bit hi colour.

Changed screen to 1024x768 32bit colour.....crash. Changed screen back 1024x768 16 bit....crash. Restart, all OK again at 1024x 768 16 bit.

Changed display fequency to 75 hz and it crashed at 1/2 a screen of text. :-(

tried 1152x864 at 16 bit, crashed on first line of text.

Crashed at setting 1024x 768 at 16 bit hi colour at basic accelerator settings, half a page of text.
