Invalid Page Fault - Ddhelp.exe in Kerne

By D'anno ·
A networked Win98SE box (Netware client) continues to receive Invalid Page Fault error cause by Ddhelp.exe. Per MS's tech site, I have installed DirectX v. 7.0, but didn't fix. The Ddhelp file is a DirectDraw helper file and seems to fire/lock when this PC's screen-saver is called?? So far, selecting NONE for screen-saver has eliminated the problem, well, at least until some other app. invokes the Ddhelp file. Anyone out there encountered this and have a fix?? Tried to fix with upgraded video driver (Trident Cyberblade i7). Happens with OpenGL scren-savers and some web pages.

Is anything else causing Kernel errors?
I had somewhat the same problem a few weeks ago when I started getting various Kernel errors. Page faults were jsut one of the errors.
I finally jsut said screw it and reinstalled Windows. Hopefully someoneelse will have better adivce :)

Thanks, I figured I would get the common fix for Window problems - 're-install'. At least I have one MS tech working on the incident :)

I hate to start out this way, but i've had the most problem with Trident video cards both in ISA (486 type) and PCI as far as compatibility and smooth running with most software or graphics modes/options. They work great in some systems and not in others.

Be sure you have the latest drivers from the mfg website or wherever you can get them. The one with the card in the box could be 6 months old or more or the mfg or chip maker may have posted a fix since the card was shipped.

Kernel errors are usually a result of corrupt windows files. Microsoft's advice is to reinstall windows from scratch or load a previous working backup of windows. Best method is to delete the entire windows directory (use deltree c:\windows command from a bootable system disk with cd rom support) and reinstall from scratch to guarantee success. Installing on top of existing can still leave the "other" files that may be corrupt or "bad".
