Get a CHM editor and try to play with the files a little, that might solve the problem

What happens if you use use 1.6 firmware ? I hear it was reasonably robust.

Most ereaders are not capable to handle all files well. The forte of the M92 lies in rendering PDFs and Epubs well/very well.
The company producing the device have their hands full improving things for these formats.
Aren't chm files Windows help files? May conversion into epub is an option.

CHM isn't developed anymore since 2003 or so, there is no point to waste time on making them work better. Convert them to ePub with Calibre.

That means you can play with the file and convert it easily in any other convenient format like someone suggested above.

Sorry, didn't see you made a new thread. But I think the suggestions of other users above could solve your problem. Or you could just do what I mentioned in another thread.

I just played with mine, used a couple of chms and the reading is better than for PDFs. No annotations though
