BSOD fatal exception question

By twilazoned ·
I may lose my grip on sanity if I don't figure out how to fix the BSOD that states "A fatal exception error
has occurred at 0028:C0006E7E in VXD VMM(01) + 00005E7E". I am working on a compaq pc (deskpro 4000) and need to transfer programs from it to a new pc. it has no medium for transfer, so I added a usb hub. It's an OPTi 82C861. It says the drivers are installed, then returns with the big yellow ! sign on device manager, follwed by the BSOD. It's a windows 98 pc, and i don't have a windows 98 CD. HELPPPPPPPPP MEEEEEEEE PLZZZZZZZZ!!!!

Your main concern seems to be transferring a few programs to a new PC.
You cannot do that unless they are DOS programs. Otherwise, you have to clean install the programs in the new PC.

However, if you need to transfer any data, consider the following.

1. Connect the old HD temporarily to the new PC
2. Install a CD-R temporarily in your old PC

If you want to keep using the old PC, you need to take care of the BSOD.

1. Uninstall the USB hub. If it is USB 2.0, replace it with a USB 1.1.
2. If the problem is still there, something else is causing the problem. It is most likely Video or RAM issue. Try a different video card or RAM(s).
