    Need help with this one..Help

    Got a system to fix for a friend.
    Abit BE6
    PIII 450
    128 sdram
    TNT PRO AGP vid
    SB16 pci
    USR OEM modem
    Cheap Case and 250w PS
    Here is the prob. I get it to load Win 98 and loop 3D Mark 2000 for about 5 hrs. Does that fine? but restart Windows and get error message...
    While initalizing device VKD:
    Windows protection error.You need to restart your computer.
    Ok then I format a couple more times and get the same message while installing Windows when it reboots the first time, it just stops there at that message.
    Is it the cheap o power supply or what?
    thanks Ramr

    Start windows with a boot log. To do this, hit f8 somewhere when it says starting windows 98... thing. Then select the option to create a bootlog.txt. And then see on which driver it fails. Post it here, so that we could think of it, if you won't get the idea on the problem.
    Also, does it boot in safe mode? Might be a driver problem, if it does boot.

    We know that the same thing would happen. We want to know what info is in the bootlog.txt file so we know what driver/device is failing.

    If you have a copy of Win95B(or C) or Win2k Pro laying around, use it instead. More stable...also, NT-base systems will give you a STOP message with 4 hexadecimal codes that can determine exactly what's wrong with it.

    Are you sure it wasn't a PEBCAK error?
