I had no choice but to turn off the computer.
After I restart got "windows experienced a serious error", etc, and the following error message in one of those "send error reporting to Microsoft" options. I copied what was in the message and it is as follows:
BCCode: 10000008e BCP1: C0000005 BCP2: 8053cF57 BCP3:B158199C
BCP4:00000000 OSVer: 5_1_2600 SP: 1_0 Product: 768_1
REPORTING DETAILS: This error report includes: information regarding the condition of Microsoft Window when the problem occurred, the operating system version and computer hardware in use, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer.
I should also mention that the computer has been making a funny noise at times during operation, sort of like a loud humming.
I don't know how to turn off caching... I went into setup (F2) and couldn't find the option for it. I did a search on the error message and came up with the following:
(although I wasn't doing a windows setup)
(I did upgrade my RAM to over 1500K from the original 256K about 4 months ago)
I also found the following from the link:http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/his/htm/_sna_lua_secondary_return_codes_lua.asp
An unexpected return code was received from the OS/2 DosLoadModule function while attempting to load the user-provided encryption or decryption dynamic link module.
PLEASE ADVISE AS TO WHAT TO DO!!
