VxD Error (BSOD) on Reboot

By K.Grass ·
Upon restarting my machine after any installation of software and/or system updates it refuses to boot normally and sometimes boots into Safe Mode. This is most aggravating. Now I can pretty much figure out for the GPF message that it has something to do with a memory address and a video driver but that's about all I can get from it. Any input would be most appreciated. Here is the error text from the BSOD;

"An exception OE has occured at 0028:C1960E1 in VXD DRVWPPQT (01)+ 0002F9**. This was called from 0028:C196EE33 in VXD DRVWQ117 (01) + 000E483. It may be possible to continue."

*Press any key to continue...
yada, yada, yada...blah, blah, blah

Some helpful specs:

System Information
Windows 98SE v. 4.10.2222B
30GB Maxtor 7200rpm HDD (3 Partitions)
512MB SDRAM DIMM CL2 (two sticks@256MB) in mem slots 1 and 2 (Compaq Presario 5000)
SMC 10/100 Ethernet FastNic
HSP v.90 Modem
ATI Xtasy 9200SE 128MB DDR AGP

Again, any help is GREATLY appreciated! TIA -- Ken

It seems as if you are having problems with the following vxd's


These are for Tape drives ... so unless you have a Tape Drive then you should be OK to just rename these files to something like:

Renamed both files with the .old extension. Seems to have done the trick, everything is fine so far, thank you Mr. G.

A few things, boot into safe mode and delete the video driver and reboot. It will try to reinstall the driver, ether use the driver you have or download a newer driver to use. You can buy a video card with drivers and try it. Or back up your files and reload windows, you could have problems with programs that were loaded and system files. You could remove new programs and go into the registry to remove entrys but that is non productive.
