    When my computer starts up sometimes fatal exception messages come up, like this one:

    A fatal exception 0E has occurred at 0177:BFF9DBA7. The current application will be terminated.

    I want to know what is the problem and how can i fix it?

    I also want to know if anything like this has ever happened to you.

    Oh and i forgot to mention, my computer is
    An IBM Aptiva
    Windows 98
    Pentium 2

    It has happened to me before, but I'm not sure what causes it. I believe it's called Windows98

    Try to reinstall Windows. If that doesn't work follow the following steps:

    1. Back up your data
    2. Format c:
    3. Install Windows (or an other OS )
    4. Enjoy a fresh installed system after you've put back your backup(s)

    If THIS doesn't work, you've the following options:

    1. Try running FreeBSD, Linux or an other OS that does like your computer.
    2. Throw your PC away and buy a new one

    Good luck!

    You might like to run the System File Checker to check if any system files are corrupted.

    Open System Information (Start Menu > Programs > Accessories > System Tools). Then click on Tools | System File Checker.

    If it doesn't work try reinstalling. You don't have to format your drive to do this; just run Setup.exe on the root of the Win CD and let it do its thing.

    If its is happening up on bootup you can do this. The problem is most likely a corrupt driver.
    <UL TYPE=SQUARE>
    <LI>While it says "Starting Windows 98..." and before the splash screen shows up, Press F8.
    <LI>Select Option 2 (logging).
    <LI>If the System fails reboot and press F8 again. This time choose command prompt mode.
    <LI>At the command prompt type "attrib -r -h -s bootlog.prv&lt;enter&gt;" and then type "edit bootlog.prv&lt;enter&gt;". The failed driver will be the last line in the file. Delete the file and reboot. If the device is plug and play it will be reinstalled on bootup. If not then reinstall the drivers.
    <LI>If it does boot up then go into Start -&gt; Programs -&gt; Accessories -&gt; System Tools and run System Information.
    <LI>On the tools menu of System Information there is a listing for "Automatic Skip Driver Agent". Run that and let it find the problem for you.
    </UL>

    There are also tools to verify system files to make sure they are valid, temporarily disable startup items, and other features in System Information.


    If none of this works, reboot your computer from your Windows 98 boot disk and insert the Windows98 Cd into the drive. Make a directory (md win98) and change into it (cd win98). Then type "copy d:\win98\*.* *.*&lt;enter&gt;", where d equals the letter of your cd-rom drive. Once its down copying, type setup /is and let Windows 98 run. It will take about 15 minutes but will all repair your system files.

    If you still need help email me.

    You can also get to System File Checker by clicking Start, Run, then typing "sfc" without the quotes.
