I have a AMD K-6/2 w/3d Now Technologies system, 256 Mb of PC-100 SDRAM, Voodoo3 3000 AGP video card on a Soyo motherboard, and constantly get BSOD’s. The situation: I had problems with my last motherboard and power supply. Since I have rebuilt my system and verified the correct operation of my hardware, I installed Windows 2000 Professional (which worked with no problem), but when I found that it was did not support the version of Boot Magic that I have, I decided to format the drive and put Win 98 SE back on it. Now, on a rather frequent basis (multiple times per hour), I get tons of BSOD’s referring to invalid VxD’s. It worked correctly for one day prior to getting these errors. Other problems include: instant loss of network connection from (don’t laugh) AOL. Doesn’t even give me the common courtesy of saying “goodbye”. 🙂 Certain software, like ICQ, performs an illegal operation EVERY time it is initialized.
Any ideas? At this point, I am willing to try anything. Thanks.
