and Error Messages
Last updated: 7/20/01
Q. When I boot up, the Win 95 screen comes up,
then goes black and the message "Windows protection error.. re-start
your computer." Where can I find information on fixing this
A. Windows protection errors are usually caused
by a hardware problem, but not always. Leading causes are bad memory,
IRQ conflicts, and motherboard problems. Click
