    With Win98 you can do a "Dirty" install of the os without losing your data.

    Just change boot priority in the BIOS to the CD or DVD and restart with the W98 disc inserted.

    I've done many dirty installs of 98, to do it in XP is a tedious, or rather not as simple as 98

    If this don't work, post your system specs, mobo, ram, etc

    1. Try to locate and install the latest chipset drivers.

    2. I've had a few W98 machines CRASH from doing a Windows "Update" .


    Quote "768 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory"

    3. 98 will only support 512mb RAM without a sysedit or registry mod, I forget which.
    Remove enough to get down to 512 if you didn't do that.

    What generated the first message?

    What is the plug and play setting in the BIOS? BOIS or OS?
    Just a shot in the dark.

    I know for a fact, too much memory, on some boards with Win 98, can mess thing up.
    Years ago I tried 768 on Win 98 and the sound card went berserk.
    There where other problems, that escape me at the moment.

    It looks like a drive for the BIOS???
    Chip set driver, makes sense to me.
    Then if it has no symptoms, it could be an anomaly, you don't have to worry about.

    I also found this thread, it looks like it is connected to memory, among other things.
    Resource Conflict - Invalid Memory Range (Win98)
    Several other sights I found Googling (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\enum\BIOS\*PNP0C01\07), mentioned memory also.

    1.) 768mg RAM works fine ! Symantec System Works, Smith Micro Check-it,Belarc-Advisor & Microsoft Device Manager ALL indicate MEM OK! also this problem occurred when RAM was original 128mg!

    (the barrier that you are referring to is resolved with a BIOS UPGRADE(ESUPPORT.COM)

    2.) I have not been able to find an isapnp.vxd Update Driver which I feel would resolve this issue!

    I'm not having any problems with my on-board Sound Circuitry(C-Media CM8330) & My Dvd-R, CD-RW Burns CD"s without any problems!

    2.)plug and play setting choice in Upgrade is both BIOS & SETUP

    3.) Since all my Devices are working Fine! I agree with your remark - " it could be an anomaly, you don't have to worry about"

    4.) I was hoping that I could locate an update driver or hot-fix for isapnp.vxd
    which I feel would resolve this issue!

    Yes, most of us know about the BIOS tweak.
    Believe me, most that come here, for help, would have no idea though.

    I didn't think you where have sounds, problems, it was just an example.

    I think I have the oldest equipment on this board, and even I quit Win98se 3 years ago, because of the increasingly unavailable drivers.


    This is where I find drivers, when they are not available anymore.
    DriverGuide - XP Drivers, Windows 7 Drivers, Printer Drivers, Audio Drivers, CDROM Drivers, Network Drivers, USB Drivers, Device Drivers, Driver Downl
    I think they still have free limited download speed membership.
    At least My 10 year old free one still works.

    Of course you have to know what you are looking for, and I'm not sure what it is.

    98 has not had an update in years, so if it is MS software, I think you are 2 blocked. (SOL)

    As a retired Millwright, I have come to understand, the importance, of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

    Unless you are bored, like me.


    Do you have any ISA cards, if you don't, I'd say that you REALLY don't have to worry about it.

    ISA wasn't/isn't really plug and play anyway.


    I know that tweaks were made that made them plug and play, for a few devices, like network cards.
    They would fool the computer, into thinking a printer was just plugged in, and would plug and play from there.

    Stroyal;

    AGAIN I Agree with you about "if its not broke, don't fix/break it!"

    The Problem Device description specified the Driver Files so I was hoping that before Microsoft Killed Win98SE 7/11/06 that there might have been an Update version of isapnp.vxd which I'm sure would resolve this ERROR CODE 27 (0x1b)!
    Like you said about no available Drivers for Win98SE! I guess this is just another example!
    I don't even use the ISA PORT & don't plan to. But I can't disable the ISA DRIVER BECAUSE ITS ALSO RELATED TO MY ON-BOARD C-MEDIA CM8330 SOUND CIRCUITRY, WHICH i ALSO CAN'T FIND A MICROSOFT WHQL APPROVED DRIVER FOR!

    Is windows update still available for 98?

    I know, I could still update for 98, long after they stopped support.
    If you can still get to it, I would thing it would have the last sets of drivers supplied.
    I know it was a pain, wrong update programs on the old disk, and wrong version of explorer.
    It was still possible though.
    Sorry, that's all I got.

    Have you tried your mobo's driver site for chipset drivers, this seems to be a common solution for some.?

    alternatively, I don't know for sure but WhyME isapnp.vxd drivers may work

    Anyway the ISAPNP.vxd file for W98SE is located in the base5.cab
    Windows 98 SE File Location Directory
    The CABS Are Located On Your Original Windows 98se CD In The Win98 Folder
    Use Your Browser's Find In Page Command To Locate The File You Are Looking For

    Here's Microsoft's Take on Stop Code #27 [They also suggest mobo drivers for a fix]

    Code 27

    Click the Resources tab, and then select the basic configuration for the resources this device uses. To see which resources this device uses, see the documentation for this device.

    This code means that the portion of the registry describing possible resources for a device does not contain valid entries
    For example, the device is marked as configurable, but the configuration information in the .inf file is set to hardwired.

    To resolve this error code, use Device Manager to remove the device and then run the Add New Hardware tool in Control Panel.
    If the device still does not work, consult the hardware manufacturer for updated drivers or further assistance.

    An afterthought here.

    If none of the above works, you may disable or temporally remove items that may be messing with the registry, even though all the signs indicate a driver issue with hardware.

    Such things as your "Belarc's System Management" and the tweak you did to run more RAM

    Tell us what you tried that did did NOT work for you.

    Have you located and installed the newest mobo chipset drivers ?

    BTW, a German Company found that Norton AV allows the virus to be installed to your HD before giving you notice.. I worked for Southern Company for 33 years and this caused a uproar.

    Be aware that Norton may not be your best Av Software choice.
