    Video problems

    I have a Pentium III machine running 98SE and a few weeks ago I got the folllowing blue screen error that says," A Fatal Exception 06 Has Occurred at 0000:0000001B." After much work I finally got it to come up in the lowest resolution. When I change the resolution, it restarts and gives me someting likee "Windows protection error in loading vmouse." and tells me to restart and takes to sfe mode. I have a restore/rcecovery disk on order but won't get the until Friday. Is there another way I can fix the problem?

    You could try a repair installation, where you reinstall Windows overtop of itself to repair and replace any damaged or missing files. You simply insert the CD and run the install program as if you were installing for the first time. Go here and scroll down to Part 2 for instructions with screenshots. HTH

    Your data will remain and all your programs should be un affected by this. However, it is ALWAYS good practice to backup your data. Never do any major system work until you have backed up any data you care about.

    I did that last Monday, but it didn't ask me for the key or the name of the computer, etc. I will try again.

    Thanks Doc.
