help : GPF in idapi01.dll


I hope someone can supply me with the answer to my problem. A customer of
mine uses a Delphi 16 application on a NT network. For the past few months,
everything has been working ok, on all types of (windows95) computers.
Recently they bought a P100 notebook, and when they tried to start the
application, the error

        General protection failure in idapi01.dll at xxxx:xxxx

was generated. Even after multiple re-installs of the BDE, nothing has
changed. Does anyone know what is going wrong here ?

Thanks in advance,
