Memory Issues

Every once in a while I get these stupid pop-ups telling me that the "memory couldn't be written to" or read from, and it crashes the program. I've had two of these today, one writing, one reading. Does this mean there's something wrong with my memory, or is this XP's version of a BSOD?

Hi

Not sure of the XP's BSOD....
but have you removed the memory [check the contacts....R they clean?] and re-seat it, sometimes its just a poor contact.

One other thing, is it set to the correct voltage [i.e 2.5, 2.6, 2.7v?], my ASUS allows these three settings!

HTH

Wild guess, but is it possible the program is doing something XP don't like? Try running the program in compatibility mode, like win98.

Just taking shots in the dark.

It's seemed to go away, but I will investigate in the morning.

XP's version of a BSOD is a BSOD. The "memory couldn't be written to/read from" is pretty much the same as a General Protection Fault. (Actually, it's identical!)

Generally caused by either a buggy application, corrupt data, or possibly bad memory/disk system.
