    if I am 'lucky' i get this:
    the instruction at "0x13355cf0" referenced memeroy at "0x0000001d". The memory could not be "written".
    Click Ok to terminte the propgram.
    Click Cancel to debug the program.

    (if I click cancel - the HD lite blinks for a few minutes
    then system is ok for a while


    If I am NOT lucky - weird things
    like programs will not open
    rt click on icon is corrupt
    hitting start icon is corrupt

    passed all memtest+ tests

    ideas

    You might check system temps first.


    Use Everest or Speed Fan.

    I get this at work sometimes with F@H running on one client and high temps. And the Dr. Watson log never points to the same program, and never malware.


    I honestly have never found any reason why it happened to me other than high temps on a Intel.

    Post (or check) the event log and see if it has any more details, like what program had the execution error.

    From other posst this is supposed to be a memory issue (timing too tight, oerclocked etc.) so it could be the ram or the memory controller.

    Off to the mothers day gig is not a reference to a gig of memory. :laugh:
