Hi, The other day my brother in law phoned with a problem with win 98. On start up it gives a "fatal exception error" and will only run in safe mode. As he knows even less than me and live's some 350 miles away up-north I got him to try the usual. System file checker, Registry checker and scanreg /restore from DOS. None of this worked. Any ideal would be very helpfull please. Thank you, Dennis

It could be one of a number of things. Direct him to click here as this is the most comprehensive help site. Are there any numbers/letters identifying the error?

Hi GANDALF <|:-)>, He is not on the internet. It says "fatal exception error at 203f 000 00316" Thanks, Dennis,
I have to go off line for a while as I have just moved my computer to fit some new speakers and found a mains plug with no top to it. Good job my little dog can't fit round the back or he would have got a bit of a shock!! Pays to check now and again.
