Suwin error when upgrading to widows 98.

By mberg ·
I am tying to upgrade from windows 95 to windows 98. I am recieving a Suwin error when windows prepares to copy files. The exact error is "SUWIN CAUSED A GENERAL PROTECTION FAULT IN MODULE SETUPX.DLL AT 0003:000015F8" I taken the seupx.dll from aworking PC and overtyped the driver I had tried to delete the driver out and still every time I try to upgrade the PC is still gives me the same error. Any help on this would be greatly appriciated.

Do you have a Soundblaster Live card? If so, look here:

Hi !
Two questions for you:
1) Do you have disabled virtual memory in Win95 ? If yes, enable it and retry to upgrade.
2) Are there many true type fonts on your computer ? If so, keep about 50 ttf's and retry the setup.

Did you check your configuration for virusses ? Good luck

This behavior can occur when any of the following conditions exist:

- There are incorrect Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) settings for a built-in peripheral device on your motherboard (for example, cache settings, CPU timing, hard disks, and so on).

- Your computer has bad or mismatched random access memory (RAM) or cache (for example, you are using EDO and non-EDO RAM, or you are using different RAM speeds).

- The motherboard in your computer is not working properly.

You can try the following:
I would say the easiest is to remove anythin unnecessary to start the system. Su just make sure you have Video, memory (if more than one module remove other) CPU.
or try these options here...

To work around this issue, try to slow down your computer by changing the BIOS
settings. For information about how to change these settings, consult the
documentation that came with your computer or contact the hardware
manufacturer.

Make the following changes one at a time.After each change, save the setting, quit the BIOS, and then try to run Setup. If one step does not resolve the problem, try the next step, and so on.

1. Modify the bus mastering setting.

2. Modify the external/internal cache setting.

3.Modify your RAM setting.

4. Modify other settings that are specific to your BIOS and that contribute to
the speed at which your computer runs .

5. Disable the Level 1 and Level 2 cache from the BIOS Setup tool for the
duration of Setup.

6. Disable the Ultra DMA setting (if applicable) for the hard disk and/or CD-ROM
drive. For information about how to change these settings, consult the
documentation that is included with your computer.

If the error message still occurs after you perform these steps, the hardware may
be faulty. Contact your hardware manufacturer for assistance.
