|Apparently drivers are trying to load but not finding the correct ESS chipset. Could be you simply have the wrong drivers. Was it working OK before with 98? If so, did anything change between the last time it worked OK and the first time it didn't?|
That message may be coming from attempts to load dos drivers in config.sys and/or autoexec.bat. You can disable those files. Run MSCONFIG from safe mode, choose 'selective startup' and uncheck the loading of those files. Save, exit and reboot to normal mode and see what happens.
