Page Fault with 3Com network driver installed

0 Likes

Problem:

Using SoftICE 3.2 on Windows 95 or NT.  During the startup process of windows the program entered SoftICE and there was a message

"Break due to page fault(0E0). Fault==0000"

The Cursor was in line 0028:c0144E0 and the header was"VPICD_PHYS_EOI 0002"

When I pressed C to continue , a character mode screen appeared with a single line :

"Window protection Error ,You need to restart your computer."

My network card is a:

         3Com Fast EtherLink XL 10/100Mb TX Ethernet Adapter.

Resolution:

SoftICE is picking up a bug in the 3Com driver.  3Com has documented this and the fix can be found in their latest driver set.  You can download it from their FTP site at:

ftp://ftp.3com.com/PUB/nic/

or from their web site at:
