BLUE SCREENS?

By glen_ross97 ·
I AM ADMINISTRATING A NETWORK WITH MULTIPLE SUBNETS. THE ONE SUBNET IS A PEER TO PEER, WINDOWS 98 PLATFORM AND RUNS ON NETBEUI. THE PROBLEM I HAVE IS THAT ONE MACHINE PERIODICALLY GIVES ME BLUE SCREENS, A VXD ERROR NORMALLY IS THE ERROR THAT APPEARS, IT NORMALLY OCUURS WHEN THE OCCUPANT IS IN PASTEL WHERE LARGE "CHUNKS" OF INFORMATION ARE TRANSPORTED AT ONCE DOWN THE NETWORK. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING I KNOW INCLUDING: UPGRADING NETWORK COMPONENTS ON THE PARTICULAR SUBNET, ADDING ADDITIONAL RAM (FROM 64 TO 96), I HAVE EVEN RE-INSTALLED THE MACHINE AND FINALLY EVEN ALTERED THE SWAP FILE. MY THOUGHTS ARE THAT THE MACHINE'S SWAP-FILE WASN'T ABLE TO HANDLE THE LARGE CHUNKS OF INFO AND WOULD THEREFORE HANG CAUSING THE BLUE SCREEN, THAT IS WHY I ALTERED SWAP FILE!!!
ANY ASSISTANCE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
THANKING YOU

Is there a reason that you are running NetBEUI as opposed to TCP/IP... as i recall NetBEUI has some limitations with respect to data transfer of large files. Try switching to TCP/IP and see if that changes your transport problems.

Try changing out your memory. Memory is
natorious for blue screens. It's usually a
timing problem. Go for the fastest
memory you can.

Good luck

Run 'sfc' (goto start>run and type sfc).
also change the network card of that computer.
still didnt help try moving the NIC to different slot.
Also check all hardware on problem computer, Start by removing all devices and add one at a time. Make sure the Power supply is ok, make sure the fans work good, Try different memory.
