Windows 95 2.1GHz CPU Limit BROKEN!


 Share

Recommended Posts


What's the exact model and number of the Sony laptop? That might be able to tell us something. 12 years old would be about 2003-2004 so it could have a few issues but nothing that we probably couldn't figure out. As for the fix, I don't think there would be a limit to the actual fix. I had to use the fix on my virtual machine and when I did, it worked just fine after that.

Sony PCG 9G3M. What I cannot understand is that the laptop loads in safe mode presumably using the same processor speed as a normal load yet it will not load in normal mode. Seems weird to my simple mind. It seems to suggest something in the programs or installation. I have installed the Fix 95 CPU and the VMM... follow up. Both seem to load OK. I established that my Win 95 CD is the B version. I could not use the floppy in dos so I installed the original version and then used the floppy in safe mode to reinstall Win 95 and then reinstalled the fixes. This made no difference.

Your confidence in finding the answer is very reassuring. Thank you again.

Does it print any errors when trying to boot into Normal mode? If so, what are they? If not, can you describe the crash and how the machine proceeds up to it in more detail?

 

How much RAM is in the laptop?

 

Try a "Logged" boot into Normal Mode and then post the contents of C:\BOOTLOG.TXT here.

It looks like standard RAM is 256MB and the max is 512MB. I thought Windows 95 was a bit different than Windows 98+, wasn't it 384MB that caused Windows 95 to have problems or am I remembering that wrong?

I can't say 100% for sure about Windows 95RTM/95A, as I have never used it, but 95B/C OSR2 handles 512MB just fine.

RAM 256. The error message is the same - Windows Protection error. A logged boot results in the same error message so I get no results. I could try reinstalling but my 95 version is B and the 95B download will not work in dos. So I have to install using the first 95 download and then try to amend it from safe mode. This seems suspect?

I have realised I needed to extract 95B download and have now reinstalled correctly. I have the same problem. One of my devices shows an error - PCMCIA controller. Cannot update driver from safe mode. Just in case it is relevant.

Does the Windows Protection Error list any specific files or give further info?

 

The purpose of the logged boot it to produce BOOTLOG.TXT, a file that lists the startup process of Windows 9x and lists drivers and modules as they are loaded. It wasn't supposed to cure the problem, it was to provide the log so we can examine it and see if it will help determine the problem. You need to copy or attach the contents of the log here.

 

What do you mean the "download will not work in DOS"? What are you trying to download? Or do you mean copying the SETUP files to the system? If you're having problems copying files in DOS it probably indicates a problem with hardware or the SETUP files themselves.

 

The PCMCIA controller should not keep the system from booting properly, but I have no experience with PCMCIA.

Windows protection error gives nothing but one line saying Windows Protection Error - Restart computer

When I select Bootlog startup it simply goes into the same Windows protection error so I cannot get a log.

The DOS problem was with the 95B startup download (top of page 1 of this topic) which I solved - I just needed to extract the files from Windows.

As a test I reinstalled the original XP onto the Sony and that loads fine so it does not seem to be a hardware problem.

In safe mode the CD Rom is not recognised and the process for correcting this seems to be rocket science. I wondered if I could manually load the drivers from the original XP CD but they are too big for a floppy?

The BOOTLOG is still created even when the machine crashes with the Windows Protection Error. You will need to choose a logged boot, allow the system to crash, and then retrieve the log either in Safe Mode or with a Live CD of some sort.

 

If you had trouble downloading the FIX95CPU package, here is an alternate link. You can't just extract the same set of files from Windows because the old versions inside the Windows SETUP CABs are bugged and have to be replaced with the updates inside FIX95CPU. If you're trying to use the same versions from the CABs, then no wonder you're still crashing.

 

XP drivers cannot be used under Windows 95, for PCIMCA or otherwise.

Thank you for your patience and for staying with my problem.

I have downloaded and extracted form the link you gave and reinstalled FIX95CPU. The result is the same the files are copied and the message tells me win95 will now load. But I get the same error message and can only load in safe mode.

I have now copied the Bootlog - here it is.

Hmmm.. well I don't see any load failures in the BOOTLOG except a font failing to load. I've seen this before but I don't remember whether or not it caused the system to crash completely as yours does.

 

Unfortunately I'm running out of ideas.. I had hoped others might be able to help once you posted the log, but it doesn't seem to be very helpful in this case.

 

Try going into the laptop BIOS and disabling every "extra" device that you can such as Audio, LAN, Modem, USB, FireWire, etc, and once you have everything disabled that you can turn off see if you can boot normally.

I noticed there are 2 bootlogs and I have checked the fails on the other one (prv). CDMKE.SYS fails - several items under that heading . No other failures. Very limited options in bios but I have disabled the dcrom at startup. No effect. I noticed the font but cannot find it on a search in the fonts so I don't know why it is trying to load it. In safe mode my cdrom is not recognised and all my efforts to correct that have failed. I thought if I had a cd I could try loading some drivers from the Sony install cds which have all the drivers. Any other thoughts? If not I will have to give up which I find very frustating. In that case I thank everyone who has tried to help me.

CDMKE.SYS? That's a DOS driver... (BTW it might be useful for getting the CD Driver recognized in Safe Mode). Where did that come from? Are you using a bona-fide Windows Install source? In any case, read this, you seem to need mkecd.vxd...
