It happens regulary that, when I want to open Internet Explorer after having
done some other jobs, that I get a blue creen with following text :
Filename : VCACHE (01) + 000015A4 Error : OE : 0028 : C004EC40
Can someone explain me what causes this blue screen ?

That error message is the Windows Me format for what in earlier
versions of Windows (95/98) would have read:

A Fatal Exception 0E has ocurred at 0028:C004EC40 in module VCACHE(01)
+ 000015A4

The only documented instance of a fatal exception 0E error in module
vcache is attributed to defective RAM. The article describing that
error uses a different address that what your error is reporting.
However you should still run a good memory diagnostic just to be sure.
Download one of the following free memory diagnostic testers and run
it overnight to test your RAM:
DocMemory http://www.simmtester.com
Windows Memory Diagnostic http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp
Memtest86: http://www.memtest86.com/vxcz

Good luck

Sometimes, removing and reseating the memory modules will help.......heavy
on the 'sometimes.'
Heirloom, old and worth a
try

Ron,

I downloaded windiag.asp of microsoft. I created a startup disk (that
contains only one file named WINDIAG with 247 kB).
When I reboot my pc with this floppy disk, I get the message : DISK I/O
ERROR.
What is going wrong ?

Reformat the diskette and then try the disk creation again.

Good luck

Ron,

With a new formatted floppy there were no problems. Thanks a lot !!
A first pass detected no problems. Will try the extended test later.
