View Full Version : Fatal exception

12-03-2001, 11:59 PM
I keep getting these messages in a blue screen: (usually when i was doing something with IE or Windows Explorer)

A fatal exception OE has occurred at 0028:C004DCCA in VXD VFAT(01) + 0000BC52. The current applicaiton will be terminated.

then i need to restart the computer or it even hanged.

other 'figures' include:

OE 0028:C029953A in VxD VWIN32(05) + 00002062

OE 0028:C000BD1D in VxD VMM(01) + 0000AD1D

OE 0028:C167C3AE in VxD MSTCP(01) + 000061FE. This was called from 0028: C164E575 in VxD VTDI(01) + 00000185.
It may be possible to continue normally.

and some other figures...

sometimes when i was surfing, it suddenly restart my computer without any error messages coming up in advance.

Could any one tell me how i can get rid of these blue screens?
Are these messages telling me that there's something wrong with my computer?

The so called 'dredded blue screen of death'. They are like colds, you can never be totally immune from them, just do your best to prevent them from appearing. I have just had a replacement computer and an upgrade to Windows Me and are experiencing heaps of blue screens at the moment. As for the cause, it could be anything but if your computer has a technical support line, take a note of the error messages and give them a call. I have noticed whenever I get blue screens, my system resources are at around 54%. normally, it operates around 86%. Take a note of these things and see how you go.

You could try copying the error message into a search engine (apparently www.google.com is the best for this) and see what replies you get. There is always Microsoft support and their Knowledge Base service might have the answer.

Now you know why people love to hate Microsoft and Windows.
Practise good housekeeping. If all else fails try 'underclocking' your CPU, ie run it at a lower frequency, there could be some combination of hardware that is causing the problem, or possibly flaky memory
