Problem with referenced memory

Hi,

Every so often when I start my PC a pop up box appears with the following message....
The instruction at "0x77f623cf" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "written".   I then have to click ok.   The machine then shuts down IIS.  
This does not happen every time, but once in around every fifth time I turn on the PC.


Does anyone know what might be the problem?

Hi daithid2000,

This could be caused by bad memmory. Try a tool like: http://www.memtest86.com (if this tool doesn't give any errors doesn't mean the memmory is good)
If you have more than one stick of memmory, pull one at the time out.

Greetings,

LucF

Hardware inside your computer, as in for the internal memmory is there 1x 256MB or 2x 128MB or whatever configuration. If there's more than one stick in your system. You can test your memmory by taking one out. If the probelm doesn't happen anymore, you found the culprit.

This failure is either through bad RAM, or through a badly written program, I don't think IIS is one of those badly written programs.
