computer stalls when modem dials

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win98.gen_discussion (More info?)

Everytime I try and connect to the internet, when the modem dials, the
computer stops responding and after 15 seconds I get the blue screen of
death? Any Help?

    Your responses will only be as good as the information
    provided. You did not even provide critical numbers from the
    BSOD. Responses will be just as misleading.

    Without any more information, I'm left with suggesting looking for any
    updated modem drivers then uninstalling then reinstalling your modem. Did
    anything occur prior to this problem, e.g. installation of any HW or SW, had
    to hard reboot due to something else giving you a BSOD, recent storm, etc.

    I just recently updated to Windows 98 from Windows 95. I have a Packard Bell
    P 100mhz 16mb and 1.6gb hard drive. The BSOD says " A fatal exception 0D has
    occured at 0028.C000 B25A in VXD VMM(01)."

    This guy is known as Mr. Electro Troll. He likes to get longwinded and
    disrupt intelligent conversation. Pay him no mind.

    Immediately, the message says declares a problem with the
    Virtual Memory (VMM). C000 is the address of the video
    controller suggesting that video memory may be problematic.
    Entering "fatal exception 0D" into an internet search engine
    should result is waves of information and possible solutions
    from Microsoft and other parties. Just one reason may be the
    graphics accelerator for that video card is not set to proper
    speed - depending on what is being used as a video card.
