Dear Fabrizio29, This answer is an addition to Denco-ga's fine comment, which I hope helped you a little to understand your problem. All OE problems are problems in the memory, usually created after adding a new software or hardware to the computer. OE:016F BFF7B018 is an error message, which appears when the memory cannot be accessed, because of definitions problem. One solution is to reinstall ME and everything else you have there. TonV from Microsoft Windows ME help offers the following: "Check your bios settings 1. Memory settings CAS latency (use 3) 2. If you have a HPT bios and UDMA drives be sure set BIOS the of harddrives to None. 3. Turn of UDMA-controller if you don't have UDMA-drives. 4. Switch off in the Bios the memory hole 15-16M. 5. If you don't have ISA-cards switch off all ISA-stuff in the BIOS (delayed transactions) 6. IDE HDD block mode, should be enabled for modern HD 7. Force update ESCD to reset the extended system configuraration data."

You could also read another solution from Microsoft themselves: http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;301963 - this answer regards RealPlayer or AOL (which are probably *not* your problem), but the problem and solution are the basically the same.

Howdy fabrizio29! It appears that it might be a memory problem, but it might not be of a "physical" (RAM) memory, but rather a problem with memory allocation. According to the Kronos Technologies Inc. NoCrash Bulletin Board entry at: http://www.nocrash.com/ncbbs/msgs/122.shtml "... these OE errors are memory allocation type errors returned by the processor to the OS." "... it is safe to assume you have recently changed a driver, installed a program, installed new hardware, or changed something in the Operating System." Their suggested solution: "Try disabling particular items in the startup list (Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Information, then go to the configuration tool in the Tools menu). There, you will be able to 'un-check' startup items." They have some other tips on the above page as well. Another post on the same site: http://www.nocrash.com/ncbbs/msgs/220.shtml Says to try "the 'step by step confirmation'? You should try this instead of safe mode. This will ask you (y or n) to load each item individually. You can do this and note each item that is being loaded until you get the blue screen. The item just before the blue screen is the one that is causing it." Another fix tip (scanregw) that might help with this problem, as well as make your system run a bit smoother in the future, is suggested at another post at the same site: http://www.nocrash.com/ncbbs/msgs/2956.shtml For a full, step by step tutorial for the "scanregw" utility, go to the PuterGeek.Com page on it: http://www.putergeek.com/scanreg/ Search strategy: BFF7B018 ://www.google.com/search?q=BFF7B018 I hope this Comment helps solve your problem and if you have any questions or need any clarification, please feel free to ask! Looking Forward, denco-ga
