By jmiker ·
an end user, windows me, receives this blue screen message when he tries to boot up his machine, this also happens in the safe mode. Any ideas? I am thinking, maybe run setup again?

An i/o subsystem driver fail to load

This can be caused by bad or loose memory chips. You can check the status of them in the BIOS setup (CMOS) when you first turn on the machine. If they show as okay, try this:

1. Restart the computer and press the [F when "Starting Windows 95" appears in the upper-left corner of the display.
2. From the Startup Menu choose 'Safe Mode Command Prompt Only', and press [ENTER].
3. Type [CD\WINDOWS] and press [ENTER].
4. Type [EDIT SYSTEM.INI] and press [ENTER].
5. Locate the VCACHE heading, and insert the following line: MaxFileCache=6144. E.g.,
[VCACHE]
MaxFileCache=6144
6. Exit, save your changes to the SYSTEM.INI, and restart the computer.
7. Upon restarting the OS should load normally
Best of luck.
