Fatal exception OE error message when shutting down WIN98SE

Hello,
I'm getting this message when shutting down my WIN98SE system:
A fatal exception OE has occurred at 0028:C02987A8 in VXD VWIN32(05) +00012D0
I have downloaded the WIN98SE shutdown supplement from Microsoft and looked for solutions on the Microsoft site but found none.
This may be a graphics-related problem but am unsure.
I have a WIN98SE multimedia update system, a Pentium 4 1.8 GHz processor, 256MB SDRAM, and NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8X graphics card.
Please help. Thank you.

chattan,

Look at the following link for shutdown and bootup problem.

The problem is usually a corrupted video card driver or sound card driver. Uninstall and reinstall these drivers.  The Fast Shutdown problem is also an issue with Windows 98.

Your running a motherboard that uses 8X AGP and SDRAM?
What make/model is the motherboard?

hi:

if stil no joy,Restore a backup copy of the Windows 98

-Start your computer, press and hold CTRL, and then choose Safe Mode Command Prompt Only from the Windows 98 Startup menu. If you are running Windows Me, start your computer with the startup disk.
At the MS-DOS prompt, type cd\windows\command, and then press ENTER. Where windows is the name of the folder in which Windows is installed.


-At the C: prompt, type scanreg /restore, and then press ENTER.
Select the previous registry you want to restore, and then press ENTER.NOTE: A properly working registry has the word "Started" next to the date.


q


-When you receive notification that you restored a properly working registry, press ENTER to restart your computer

It sounds like Start-Run-SFC may help the situation.

I have a Gigabyte Technology 8IDX motherboard.
Hope this helps.

Your motherboard has a 4X AGP slot so your video card is running at
4X instead of 8X. That's not where the problem is though, 8X cards are
able to step-down to 4X. The motherboard does run SDRAM...133MHz.

Adding a line in the config.sys file may help.

Microsoft says to add
MinSPs=4
but you should make it
MinSPs=12

You also want to ensure there is no spyware on the system. Spybot will scan and eliminate spyware.

Make sure you use the update feature before you scan.

If that stuff doesn't provide a cure then post your scan.log from HiJackThis

there may be some BHO programs effecting you there.
