SYMPTOMS

After you upgrade certain Compaq computers that were shipped with Microsoft Windows 98 or Microsoft Windows 98 Second Edition preinstalled and have a digital video disc (DVD) drive to Windows Millennium Edition (Me), you may receive the following error message:
A fatal exception 0E has occurred at xxx:xxxxxxxx in VxD SCSI1HLP
If you click Cancel, your computer may stop responding (hang).

The Idecdvsd.vxd file that was supplied by Compaq to assist in operating the DVD drive causes this issue. The file is version number 1.0.0.0 with a size of 8.22 KB.
