To minimize chance of data loss, EMM386 has halted your computer... I was running the abandonia boot disk on a 500mhz computer with 512MB RAM (2 256 slots). I've already tried replacing the RAM, but the computer still crashes. I've also tried running Memtest x86 just to be sure it wasn't the RAM, but the program crashed with a long (like, REALLY long) error message.

Troubleshooting MS-DOS 6.xx/7.xx and EMM386.EXE 4.49/4.95 If you encounter unexpected behavior (for example the system or a program hangs) when using EMM386.EXE 4.49/4.95, use these troubleshooting steps: 1.

Just run SYSEDIT, go to CONFIG.SYS, and find the line that best resembles this: device=c:\windows\emm386.exe .... and add "REM " to it, like this: rem device=c:\windows\emm386.exe .... (Don't do it if you still use many DOS-based programs) -PJ Reply With Quote March 27th, 1999,04:31 PM #4 Miless View Profile View Forum Posts HWC Technician Join Date Mar 1999 Location Ga. Posts 1,289 If you are planning on useing Dos for anything then you better leave EMM386 alone.In the avent that you need Dos then reboot into Dos.At the dos prompt type MEMMAKER,if you do not have a super VGA moniter then select custom, answer yes in the advance options where asked if monochrome region(B0000-B7FFF)select default settings unless you know that a default is not correct for your system t
display and want to conserve memory. 2.4 Using MemMaker with IBM LAN. 2.5 MemMaker and Adaptec SCSI devices. 2.6 Running MemMaker on a computer with PC Tools RAMBoost. 2.7 EMM386 detects an error in an application. 2.8 MemMaker no longer aggressively scans upper memory by default. -Top- 2.1 Intel Expanded-Memory Driver (EMM.SYS) If you use Intel's EMM.SYS driver with Aboveboard, use EMM.SYS version 4.0 revision E if you an ISA system, or EMM.SYS version 4.0 revision D if you have an MCA or other system. Contact Intel for a free upgrade. 2.2 Running MemMaker on a Computer with PC-NFS If you use PC-NFS network software, carry out the following procedure before you run MemMaker: 1. Open your MEMMAKER.INF file by using any text editor. This file is in the directory that contains your MS-DOS files. 2. Add the following line to the file: *NET 3. Save the file, and then run MemMaker. 2.3 You have a Super VGA display and want to conserve memory. If you use Microsoft Windows on an 80386 computer with extended memory and a Super VGA display, you can use the MONOUMB.386 file, in conjunction with MemMaker, to conserve conventional memory for running programs. To conserve memory if you have a Super VGA display: 1. Open your Windows SYSTEM.INI file, and find the [386Enh] section. 2. Add a DEVICE command for the MONOUMB.386 file, which is located in your MS-DOS directory. For example, if your MS-DOS files are in C:\DOS, add the following line to this section: DEVICE=C:\DOS\MONOUMB.386 3. Save the file, and restart your computer. 4. After your computer starts, run MemMaker by typing MEMMAKER at the command prompt. 5. Choose Custom Setup. On the Advanced Options screen, answer Yes to the question "Use monochrome region (B000-B7FF) for running programs?" Follow the instructions on your screen. 2.4 Using MemMaker with IBM LAN Before you run MemMaker, you might need to make adjustments to the parameters specified for your IBM LAN support driver, DXMC0MOD.SYS. In your CONFIG.SYS file, make sure that the DEVICE command that loads DXMC0MOD.SYS includes one of the following before you run MemMaker: o The first three parameters, as in the following example: DEVICE=C:\DXMC0MOD.SYS 400000000001,D800,1 o No parameters, as in the following example: DEVICE=C:\DXMC0MOD.SYS o Some parameters and enough commas to fill in the first three parameters, as in the following example: DEVICE=C:\DXMC0MOD.SYS 400000000001,, 2.5 MemMaker and Adaptec SCSI devices MemMaker is compatible with Adaptec SCSI devices. However, if you use the ASPI4DOS.SYS driver to support your SCSI device, MemMaker by default will exclude this driver froNo related pages.

A Windows error is an error that happens when an unexpected condition occurs or when a desired operation has failed. When you have an error in Windows, it may be critical and cause your programs to freeze and crash or it may be seemingly harmless yet annoying.
A stop error screen or bug check screen, commonly called a blue screen of death (also known as a BSoD, bluescreen), is caused by a fatal system error and is the error screen displayed by the Microsoft Windows family of operating systems upon encountering a critical error, of a non-recoverable nature, that causes the system to "crash".
One of the biggest causes of DLL's becoming corrupt/damaged is the practice of constantly installing and uninstalling programs. This often means that DLL's will get overwritten by newer versions when a new program is installed, for example. This causes problems for those applications and programs that still need the old version to operate. Thus, the program begins to malfunction and crash.
Computer hanging or freezing occurs when either a program or the whole system ceases to respond to inputs. In the most commonly encountered scenario, a program freezes and all windows belonging to the frozen program become static. Almost always, the only way to recover from a system freeze is to reboot the machine, usually by power cycling with an on/off or reset button.
Once your computer has been infected with a virus, it's no longer the same. After removing it with your anti-virus software, you're often left with lingering side-effects. Technically, your computer might no longer be infected, but that doesn't mean it's error-free. Even simply removing a virus can actually harm your system.
Reimage repairs and replaces all critical Windows system files needed to run and restart correctly, without harming your user data. Reimage also restores compromised system settings and registry values to their default Microsoft settings. You may always return your system to its pre-repair condition.
