Win ME Blue Screen System Lockup

  drmk 13:58 01 Jan 2005

I have installed Win ME & Win 2000 on my computer. Win 2000 runs perfect & faultless.

In win ME I had the following Error Message

- when trying to intstall programs
- when trying to restart
- when trying to shutdown

Fatal Error: Biosxlat 02

000001DF :00:0028 :C022EC3F

or 0E :28:L0030D12

What does it mean and how can I correct it.

I am not sure what it means, however I had this porblem (don't know if the error was exactly the same) and I just re-installed windows over the current one and didn't lose ANY files doing this... However, I would suggest backing up your files incase something goes wrong!!!!

if ME is on the C: drive and you then installed 2000 it could have altered the startup inf needed for ME. For example years ago when I dual booted ME and Win 95 a system restore of ME stopped 95 from loading and it had to be reinstalled.
