this is a very broad question...

what is it referring to when the error box (this is xp home) says "the memory could not be read" ...

or ... "the memory could not be written" ...

the reason i ask is, i play about 8 different games and either get this message or they just simply exit to the desktop at random times.. i cant even play Pinball or Internet Backgammon for crying out loud!

i have found that turning off the sound completely or lowering the quality delays/helps this problem.. i have a creative SB 16bit.

im wondering if possibly the "memory" that cant be read is from within the soundcard?

my video card is a ti4200 g4, im almost sure its fine...

not sure about the DDR i put in there, but the harddrive is for sure fine as well.

---> any thoughts on this would be great, please post even if your not for sure!

thanks in advance to anyone who posts thier thoughts!

Is your memory check that is done finding all of the RAM installed when you first boot up? If so at least your RAM is OK.

to me that sounds like a ram problem. if you have two sticks of ram, i suggest to take one out, see if the problem exists, then swap it with the other one and take note if the problem exists. if you dont have 2 sticks, then see if you can get ahold or one, or exchange it for a new one. it's probably bad.
