I tried to load a game CALL OF DUTY last night and as usual it failed to run, freezes. I did all the usual, new drivers, closed everything, changed resolution etc etc. In the end I uninstalled it. However I am now getting illegal operation with outlook and opera.
The text is
"Opera caused an exception 03h in module NVIEW.DLL at 0187:10001001 and then it list a few registers.
The thing is that NVIEW is for the new video drivers!! I am using win98se, 700e pentium111,since nov 99 and have religously kept it up to date. Is there anyway I can fix this illegal operation without a total re-install?
I am using AVANTI just now and as yet it has not closed!!
thanks for replies, it is GEFORCE256 32MB, 384MB RAM but I had lots of trouble with UNREAL TOURNAMENT, loads of crashes so I gave up on games. Got a second hard disk and thought I would give COD a try but no good either. Maybe PC is too old. Probaly needs a good clearout but I have laods of bits I bought over the net like OPERA, ADAWRE. MUSICMATCH, TROJAN and no doubt a few others, plus all the drivers I have updated. It would take me a week to re-build and I got loads of grief when I installed ADSL modem., in fact I get a lot of groef at times.
I tried that link and it is saying I new new video drivers but I downloaded new last night!!
Anyone who can suggest a tweak that will get that game going will be my hero but I think I am dashed.
