My Gateway G6-233 Pentium II posts the message" While initializing device CONFIGMG: Windows protection error. You need to restart your computer." I can boot to Safe Mode and/or Safe Mode with Network Support. After days of trying to circumvent the problem, I resorted to reinstalling 98SE, but still have the same problem, but probably compounded by the reinstall. The computer is too old to install Windows 2000 Pro, so I'm at a standstill. What does configmg.vxd do, and how can I regain control when I can't boot to Windows?

Hi and Welcome to

This behavior can occur because Windows Setup flushes the L2 Cache as it initializes the PCI-to-AGP Bridge on a Micro-Star International MSI-5169 motherboard.
