Hi from Missouri,
I'm new to the computer world and I need some help.
Not sure if it is hardware or software so I'll post here.
Three times today I was trying to get into "Alumni.net" and my system crashed with this message:talkback caused an invalid page fault in module talkback.exe at (then a bunch of letters and numbers).
Then it tells me to contact program vender (who is that).
If someone could help e-mail me at email@example.com Thanks Wayne

if you could post more info, it would help more. such as the exact error message. i had a guy talk to me about an issue with his laptop. it seems he deleted the talkback.exe program from his harddrive and that was the reason for his problems. since i didn't look at the computer, i suggested to reinstall the program. unfortunately, it wouldn't uninstall so he could reinstall it as the registry needs to be edited. needed the .exe file to uninstall. however, if the registry is edited correctly, winxx won't know the difference and he could then reinstall.
anyway, post back with the message and we'll see what we can do.

hm, jim. sounds like a driver issue, could be directx related, too. what video card do you have?
if you want, e-mail me with the full list of faults, and all of the hardware. need model numbers, too. brands, etc. since you haven't included the video card in this list, it's hard to tell. need driver versions, for it, too.

Hi Win, thanx for your reply to my posting; I'm not sure I have all the info you requested and don't know how to find some, but here's what I do have. My video card is ATI RAGE128 SD AGP, driver-ati tech-enhanced 6\18\99. Generic cdrom 36x,MS 5-11\98. Plextor 12\10\32a burner MS 5\11\98, Komodo 17'' monitor MS 5\11\98, Creative SB Live Value Creative 8\20\1998, Iomega Zip 100 standard disk drives 5\11\98. Am not sure what direct x I had but upgraded to directx 8 yesterday. Here's the list of error messages and blue screens of death that I rremembered to list; 1) fatal error exception oe@0028:c1563b7e in vxd utdi(01)+0000024e 2) fmempro win 32 error code 1157 can't find one of the library files to run application 3)exception oe @0028:c15b16e7 in vxd called from 0028:c000ab74 in vxd (froze while burning cd) 4) fatal exception oe@0028:d35250d2 in vxd 5) fatal exception oe 0028:d35257b4 (#4-locked up when switching off modem to get offline, #5 Locked up using cd player on the net, high pitched beep till restarted) 6) exception oe @0028:c15bob5c in vxd esdi_506(01)+000111c.called from 0028:c18310e8 invxd vol track (04) +00000a18 (when cd is ejacted, the computer quits and has to be restarted). Pc game freezes sometimes also come with a high pitched continous beep till restarted. Hope this helps, Jim
win's response: hi. from what i can see,the errors are related to either video, or the drives, possibly and probably the cd's. i went through freezings when i had the wrong driver installed for my video card. i had one that was customized for games, but wouldn't work properly in other programs like internet explorer and office. i had to use the correct driver. ati never worked on my machine, hehe, a hardawre thing, but it's because of the lousy drivers. can you find or e-mail them about updated drivers for the video card?
as for the error codes, 0028:xxxxxx is related to disk controller; a.k.a drives, so the drivers may not be installed correctly or you may need an upgraded driver.you might have to play around with bios settings, too. but don't do it yet. there should be some help out of the web sites from the manufacturer, and the news groups that specialize in cd burning. the esdi_506 relates to drives, too. the numbers after the 0028: are memory address. that's where the oe (output expected) is being called from.
anyway, i really think the cd's are part of the problem, but the video card could be it, too. um, if you have another video card, non ati, and drivers, try uninstalling the ati and installing that one. see what happens. cd burning is new, and still has bugs in it, you might want to try another progam for cd burning. so start with the video card, then unplug cd by cd until your problems go away. there's where you start. then you have a better idea what to do. process of elimination.
e-mail me and post back on trish's board as to the results. i'm sure others that may like this info, would appreciate knowing what to try and what resolved your problem so they can help you, and also help themselves.

my computer is in bios and i carnt get out of it have you got any suggestions
|Posted on Tuesday, September 25, 2001 - 6:40 am: |
are you getting any error messages while your pc is booting, before you get to the bios setup? if you can't see what's going on because of the windows logo,try hitting the esc key,that should temporarily get rid of the logo to show whats going on behind the scenes.pressing the pause key will pause the screen so you can get a chance to read ( and note down)any msgs,if it's passing by to quickly.
it may be that a setting needs changing
