looks kinda like a virus(or viri in parris language), Try a virus scan with any scanner you have, and if you dont have one try avg free edition.

It's the infinite loop error. Has to do with Video Drivers.

Update your BIOS Video driver (AGP) and then also update your Video Card drivers. Or reinstall the Video Card drivers.

I had this happen to me. It's a real pain. It was a different senario but it all tends to do with the AGP driver of the MoBo and the Vid Card drivers.

Yours could be a variant of this error. Are you using any Symantec/Norton AntiVirus software? If so disable it, turn it off and reboot to see if it stops. There is a problem with the virtual video adapter driver that is used by Symantec. It's used by Symantec's PCAnywhere but I had the problem with the AV proggy. Anyway...

Oh yeah, the old 256_1 error. Had the same thing, all the documentation I found points towards videocard drivers.

When I had that error, the only way I could get rid of it was to move my sound card down a PCI slot. I guess with my motherboard my pci 1 slot was sharing resources with my agp slot, and creative and nvidia were not sharing nicely.

Since I moved my soundcard, never had it happen again. YMMV.

Yep... There was a thing, a weird thing with Sound Blaster cards and the first PCI slot. Something to do with the first slot being a master slot and having some sort of conflict with the video card slot. I remember that SB actually had a update sheet in their retail boxes pointing this out.



@ zeke... :mad: Smart ass... I want a refund! :rolleyes:

ok i found the culprit. well im just giving info so that incase some one else gets that error they know how to fix it. Ive fixed with forceware, gart, smbus u name it. norton, sblive. well the reason i have give: forceware, agp drivers, norton, sblive is because those are the top 4 reasons of that error. I have done them all. yet another 5th one is: ram. yup2 thats right. thats the one that fixed for me. just take out ram, start machine, let it beep, put back ram and whambam thankyoumaam...it works fine now guys...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
