In win '98se I get
"While initiating devie IOS
Error Real mode system memory allocation failed".
Another prompt comes up suggesting
"An internal stack overflow has caused yhis session to be halted. Change the
stacks setting in your config.sys file & then try again".

This happened after I tried switching agp video cards and had to put the
original back.
I can boot to safe mode. I ran scandisk and sfc. SFC indicated
there was a difference in user.exe and another dll. Should I replace these
files? Do I need to re-load my video drivers?
Any suggestions? Thanks.

The first thing that I would try would be to run Scanreg /restore to go back
to a registry from before you made the change that failed.

How to Manually Restore the Windows 98/Me Registry
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=221512

Do not use SFC to extract user.exe. Extract it manually if you still have
the problem after going back to the earlier registry. See this article:

System File Checker Tool Extracts Incorrect File Versions

Every once in awhile, you get lucky and someone gives you legitimate working
advice. Scanreg /restore worked. Thanks.

Do you have any idea of how the "real mode error" happens?
