Fatal exception 0E...

By bonglegro ·
My friend has a Umax AD-350, with an AMD-K6 proc w/mmx,an Ati 3D Rage Pro 2x video card,64MB Ram, with Win98SE OS. He gets the fatal exception 0E at 0028:FF06DB70 in Vxd kmixer(05)+0000A490 no matter what program is running, or none at all. It seems to run longer after restart if it's been off for a long time. Both fans(power and cpu) are working fine. Happens with either memory stick in pc. Some other error and exception warnings come up periodically also, and a few times after a restart I would get "no signal input" to the moniter. He took it to Best Buy where it's under warranty, but they say it's a software problem, and that he has some files that aren't win98 compatable. I just don't buy that for a reason, and don't see any files that might cause this. Is it a heat problem? It doesn't feel hot(the cpu or video card). Or could it be the driver? We've also reinstalled win98 once. It does happen quicker with graphics intensive applications ie: games. Any advice?

Run a check on the hard drive to see if its going. Is the drive close to being full or is there alot of things loading at start up? Is the main board good go to the website and see if they have a diagnostic for it. You can wipe the drive compleatly and reinstall but I would not try it if you have not done it befor.zlito@aol.com

In Windows, search for a file called kmixer.vxd and see which application, program or game it is associated with (it may be in the programs folder or hunt for other clues that give the association). Then uninstall the program and reinstall it. If it still happens after reinstalling you may have bad software to return.

Running a quick search on the Microsoft support site gives a couple of possibilities.

The first is that the OE exception errors can be caused by McAffee anti virus software. Check out this link for more info:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q302/8/33.ASP (remove any spaces)

Other causes for OE errors, tend to be either memory related (you say that it occurs with either memory stick in the pc, so this is less likely) or some software packages can be problematical. Havea browse around the MS site to see if any of the articles there help.

The last resort thing to do, which I know is tedious but will pinpoint the problem area, is to re-install a clean Win98, then install each package one at a time until you startgetting the errors again. This will tell you which piece of software is causing the problem, and then contact their support for updates. It could be something as simple as an outdated driver file.
