I keep getting this errors and don't know what is causing them. I think they are ram (memory) errors. They go something like memory at address (xxxxxxxxxxx) in reference (xxxxxxxxxxxxx) could not be read. Also instead of the word read, sometimes it says they can't be written. The funny party is Prime95, Sandra, 3dmark, PcMark, nor other testing programs don't seem to give me those errors. All big named programs like Nero, Microsoft Office, Photoshop, Games, and of course all the others I have intalled execute fine and work good. Its the small programs that give me this error all of a sudden when executed, don't even let me run them once since intallation. So I was thinking, what the hell, why only some programs at differnet memory ranges, but funny part is sometimes its not different memory ranges, its the same memory range and same reference. Well anyways, if you know what can be causing this, let me know. I am running windows xp pro sp1 (not interested in sp2). Startup is running zonealarm pro suite 5 and Motherboard Monitor 5.
