Dos 8.0

Continuously blue screens when launching programs. This started when running Diablo (which ran perfectly for a long perod). Now the error comes up when trying to launch any application.
The error that comes up the most is:
VMM (01) + 0000DC99 Error:OE:0028:C0000EC99

After running diagnostics there were memory errors, so I removed the ram and went throught the sticks. One tested without errors, the others are removed and it is down to 128 mb of ram, but still getting errors. Please help!

If the memory problems are not in the same location the other option to check will be the power supply,check to make sure that it is working properly and not causing a heating problem which could the effect cpu processor to.

ok first completly defrag your hard drive. THIS IS IMPORTANT! After a right click on My Computer and go to properties. Go to the performance tab. Then go to file system and then virtual memory. Uncheck the box that says let Windows specify my virtual memory settings. Specify 350 megs to 600 megs ... ignore all the Microsoft warnings about how you shouldn't do this blah blah blah.... and reboot.

After you reboot go back tpo the virtual memory settings and re-check let Windows handle my virtual memory.

What has probably happened is that you have something corupt in there. By following the above steps you will recreate the virtual memory areas on your hard drive and eliminate any error that may have planted themselves in the sectors Windows was using. YOU MUST DEFRAG FIRST TO GET THIS TO WORK RIGHT!!

Hope this helps....

Thank you as well, but this wasn't necessary. The system got so bad we had it taken in to have the hardware checked. It was a bad motherboard.
