ROM-DOS Fatal Error! Stack Overflow (6E47:000B)! System Halted... I have an agebra fx 2.0 plus and have this error message..what can i do to fix this?


The Stack Error message is sent if the calculations are so complicated that overflow the stacks for numerical values or the stacks for commands.
  • Simplify the formulas to keep stacks within 10 levels for the numeric values and 26 levels for the commands.
  • Divide the formula into two or more parts.
If you are running a program you created, avoid recursive function calls, if they are two deep you may exceed the 26 level limit.
If you are nesting parentheses try not to nest them too deeply (maximum 10 levesl).

NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction. CS:0000 IP


One reason this could happen is that you are trying to run an old DOS based, or simply an old incompatible, program. These are usually old games. If this error only happens when running old games written for an older operating system, the only solution is to get an updated version.

Hello.
Looking at your specs, I assume that a Pentium 4 is not enough to run these kinds of games, so the overwhelming amount of data going through the cpu may have been causing your system to overheat.
Do these steps:
(1) Uninstall and then re-install your graphics card driver, if problem persists, go to number 2
(2) Try playing around with the ATI Catalyst settings, set everything there to default
(3) If problem still persists, then I -am- sure that your PC and/or graphics card is way too overheated, in this case:
(a) I recommend getting a heat-monitor (doesn't come cheap though) for your PC, to keep yourself notified of the temperatures of your PC
(b) Try buying more fans and if you can afford it get a water-cooling system

Above all, if you can afford a better -Gaming- PC then I'd suggest that, because your system isn't really that great for new games.

Good luck!

Mother board is ak77 pro 133 vt8233 will not run xp proI


Hi,
The BSOD (blue screen of death) usually means that a computer component has failed. This could be a hard disc drive, a memory module, the cpu, or the motherboard. I would start by checking out the hard drive first. See if it is spinning and not making any clicking sounds. Try replacing it if you have another one. Then check memory and cpu. Some people actually like having an old computer hanging around. They install Windows 98 in it so they can play old dos games and games that don't require a blazing fast processor! Good luck...Hank

Frogger for Windows 97


As far as I know, the music does not play on a SATA drive, or on a NT based operating system. It seems to only run on the DOS based operating system, like Win 95, 98, 98SE, and ME. Frogger works fine (with music) on my older Pentium 4 with Win 98SE.
