Boots up then locks up

by ryhed / June 3, 2004 12:14 AM PDT

Getting an error code says windows performed an illegal operation when windows 98 loads on my emachine 633is. I think it is out of memeory. How can I get it running? I don't have any disks it was and hand me down computer.

Re:Boots up then locks up (an no 98 CD or any other CD to fix it)

Frankly, you need to get a spare tire for that car too.

This isn't going to go far.

If you didn't understand the analogy, it's this. Without a Windows 98 CD or the CDs that came with the system, repair is uncertain and most likely impossible.

1. Getting an error code says windows performed an illegal operation when windows 98 loads on my emachine 633is.

a. Since we cannot see a members computer from here to ascertain what exactly is or has been installed, we must rely on the question content to attempt a qualifying response. Many unclear or questions void of useful information may get skipped.

b. In order for us to analyze a potential problem and offer tips, a question should state the exact system error(s) - spelled, spaced and capitalized just as it is shown on the display -- used to inform a user of a problem.

2. I think it is out of memeory.

Give reason for your assumption?

3. How can I get it running?

I agree fully with what Bob mentioned. However, if you boot the system while holding down a Ctrl key until you see the Windows Desktop -- little if anything should be showing in the Tasktray --, what happens?

''Fatal Exception 0d Error Messages''

1. To get a basic understanding of why is it unimportant to report or to understand the Registers, Stackdump, and Memory Segment listed on the monitor when an error is rendered or recorded in the Faultlog.txt file, please read the section titled "Low Memory Below 1 Megabyte (MB)", in the article titled, "Troubleshooting Insufficient Memory Errors". The gist is, It's always changing and won't necessarily be the same location in memory. So, it is really unimportant to know, ask about, and saves on pasting it into a question somewhere.

2. Please refer to this TechNet article and the title "Using Automatic Skip Driver Agent."

3. Please read the Microsoft Knowledge Base article, subject "Definition of Fatal Exception 0d Error Messages."
