Then that is not a Windows problem. That is a computer hardware problem. I
asked for more details, but you didn't tell me any more than in your first
What make and model is your computer? Is it still in warranty? Do you have
the owner's manual, which might tell you how to get into the BIOS on this
If you mention the make of your computer (Dell? HP? Home-built, like
mine?) then we may be able to help you. If you won't even tell us that,
then there's nothing we can do for you.

"VFAT" (the path references a floppy disk drive, a hard disk, or an
FTL-formatted Linear Flash PCMCIA card (Flash File System)
Are you using InCDv4010?
If so, look here:
"Minor issue - for some reason 4010 will not install in Win 98SE.
Obviously I have Un-installed old, etc. Tried install in Safe Mode, etc etc.
After installing 4010 I get the BSOD "An exception 0E has occurred at
0028:E816F14A in VxD ---. This was called from 0028:c1c346c0 in Vxd voltrack
(04) + 00000430 It may be possible to continue normally......... etc"
Taking any action from this point goes nowhere - system does
not continue to boot and stops at a blank screen.
I have re-installed v 3.5.24 - without a problem. I can use InCD
3524 I do not HAVE TO HAVE 4010 in win98se.
If however you know the cause of the problem, please let me know.
Thank you for your email.
Apparently there is a bug in the program. In the meantime, please stay with
the old version until Our Engineers can resolve this issue.

"Fatal Exception 06 in VXD VFAT(01)

Config.sys file points to Previous Version of Ifshlp.sys file. (Windows
automatically loads this driver when you start your computer.)
There is another Fatal Exception with VFAT when you copy WIN95/98 from a
FAT16 Partition, to a FAT32 partition. This is due to 16bit clusters verses
32bit clusters. If your WIN operating system was FAT16, and you got a new
hard drive, it must also be formatted FAT16 for the BOOT partition. Use the
FAT32 conversion program that comes with WIN98 to upgrade to a FAT32
operating system, do not partition copy a FAT16 partition to a FAT32
Use Google and search for "vfat (01)", " VxD voltrack (04)" and also check
with the MS Knowledge Base.

Can you boot into Safe Mode? (Usually by holding down the ctrl key
during bootup until you get to the Start Menu and choose Safe Mode).
If so, once there go to Start, Run,type msconfig and press the Enter key.
Select Selective Startup and uncheck Process Autoexec.bat and Config.sys.
Close out and reboot Normally.
Still no luck?
If this just happened (last 5 days), try a Registry restore.
Boot to the Safe Mode Command Prompt Only by once again going to the Start
Menu (if possible):
At the C:\ prompt type scanreg /restore and pick out the newest date
just before the problem happened and follow the on screen instructions.
