Hello guys. I've been trying to set up a clean 98SE install in one of my built rigs for the past two days and -not-rarely- have come a not-so-litte inconvenience which is honestly driving me nuts. 😁
More specifically, a Kernel32 error which appears every single time Windows loads.
'Kernel32 caused an invalid page fault in module <unknown> at 0000:00000003'
The system in question is a 1400-S on an ASUS P3B-F 440bx board with 256 Megs of PC133 C2 RAM, and a 40gb IDE disk paired up with a Geforce3, a Matrox M3D in slot 2, a 12mb V2 in the third slot, an Intel 1000/GT nic in the fourth, a Montego Vortex 2 in the fifth and an AWE32 CT3980 which is in the bottom ISA.
Already tried removing cards one by one, re-installing Win with the /p i switch, running scanreg, reallocating IRQs and disabling programs on start-up with no success. The fun thing about this error is that most of the time I am able to continue straight to the desktop without any issue, but Oh yeah. Ever need to boot into safe mode and better forget about it. Error message, and bam that's it. Windows won't even attempt to draw the taskbar. 🤣
Enough rant, probably've been spending like 8 hours straight with this. 😵
Any suggestions? Thanks!
