Protection errors are common when adding memory and new things to windows. which version are you using 95,98 or me? if you added more memory try removing the new and rebooting.

There is no memory added. My OS is Windows 98.

The cause of the protection error very much depends on what the error itself is. You say that you get Windows Protection errors...do you mean GPF - Genreal Protection Fault, IPF - Invalid Page Fault, or fatal exception errors (blue screen of death).

The best place to look fo help I have found is the Microsoft support site.

For GPF/IPF related erros check out:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q286/1/80.ASP

For fatal exceptions check out:
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q150/3/14.asp

If these aren't specific enough, try searching the support site for the specific error you are getting.
