I have problem with some games (like BladeRunner, NBA Live 2003...)when starting games i get error something like 'Invalid Page Fault ... kernel32.dll'(NBA Live 2003). That kernel32.dll i meet when playing BladeRunner too. I tried everything, I formatted windows lot of times but error was still there when playing these games.If anyone knows how to fix this please tell me!!! frown

Is it a bug with the game in its incompatibility with XP (or whatever OS you're using? I am assuming you're using XP because that seems to be the standard these days)...

Have you tried looking for a patch for those games also and installed them?

I will try games with patches, but I think the problem is with my virtual memory.
Thanks

Its mostly a Windows 9x based problem, do you ahve alot of programs running in the background or in the taskbar ie antivirus software, quicktime, realplayer and all the other add junk that Kazaa and Morpheous install along with it?

check Start>Run>MSCONFIG

Is it an XP computer? If it is you could try using compatibility mode and doing things Inferno recommends like turning off advanced text services.

Polo is talking about actually opening up your computer and replacing one of the sticks with a spare if you have one available.

Another thing you can do is download memtest86 and let it run its tests overnight.
http://www.memtest86.com/

You run it from a floppy. It has its own little OS that fits nicely on the floppy and it doesn't matter whether you're using DOS, Win 98, Win XP, or Linux on your computer because memtest86 doesn't use your hard drive. It checks your memory for you.

It could also be some kind of incompatibility between your OS and your hardware. Is your mother board correctly installed? (Are your motherboard's drivers certified for Windows ME?) Do you see any warnings in the Device Manager?

Ultimately, you could try another Windows version. ME is probably (IMHO) the worst OS you could ever have the misfortune of being unable to avoid using. laugh

I used Win98, Win98SE, WinME and Win2000 and error was still there. I'm going to try this memory test.

Aye the memory sticks, check em to see if they may have just failed... if you get it on all OS's then chances are its hardware...

I will check them. I'm sure that my hardware is not working OK.

Thanks for helping
