View Full Version : error on startup

12-07-2002, 07:43 AM
I am receiving the following error message every time I start my computer

While initialising device configmg:
Windows Protection Error. You need to restart you computer.

After restarting it a few time it eventually goes. However the speakers and printer (usb port) are not working. There are yellow exclamation marks under the Sound video & game controller and usb controller in the device manager.

There is another error message about the Himem.sys file that comes up sometimes. However I cannot replicate it at the moment to get the exact wording.

I use the Windows 98 software on a Hp Pavilion 4410 machine.

What should I be looking for to fix the problem?
