    Hey whats up hope sumone can help lol.


    Okay so my system freezes about 5 min after I log into windows and then I get a Blue screen saying that the perm2dll.dll has caused the error. So I looked 4 an update 4 my GC witch is a piece of poo lol Creative Labs Graphics Blaster Extreme (not Exxtreme). Can't find any so then I tried to maybe get a new .dll file didn't work.I recentry installed SP2 but I thought that was the problem so I unistalled it. Nothing changed. I can run my system fine is safe mood without it freezing can anyone help.


    My system is a P3 733, 256 ram, XP PRo, Graphics Blaster Extreme

    Have you tried un-installing and then re-installing the video card through Device Manager?

    It makes sense that Safe Mode works, as the driver for your video card aren't loaded in that mode.

    You could try turning down hardware acceleration first. There typically is a performance loss while doing this, but since your video card is low grade you probably don't perform many hardcore tasks anyways.

    To adjust hardware acceleration, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
    2. On the Settings tab, click Advanced, and then click the Troubleshoot tab.
    3. Move the Hardware Acceleration slider to None, and then click to clear the Enable Write Combining check box.
    4. Click OK, and then click OK.

    Note This procedure prevents the display driver from programming the hardware incorrectly, but you may lose some display functionality and performance. Although you can increase the hardware acceleration settings higher than None to regain functionality and performance, these settings increase the chance that the issue will occur again. For maximum stability, leave hardware acceleration off.

    Although you shouldn't have to, have you rebooted after the acceleration?

    Might also want to run a test on your RAM...

    Ya I got the reboot prompt screen and I restarted. Well my comp was being funny with the floppy so I used a different Mem test it found no errors with my mem.
