Mysterious Error Message
I have just got a new computer with Windows XP installed on it. I have had the usual password problems but it also does not disconnect after receiving/sending mail although I have told it to do so. I also get an error message when I shut down from outlook express – “the instruction at ox 77fs2004 referenced memory at oxo 7f4608 the memory could not be written.” Any idea what this means please? And how I can make it disconnect until I get broad band?
This typically means you have bad memory in the computer. You can download and run a great memory test program for free from www.memtest86.com.
If it detects bad memory, you’ll need to have that memory replaced.
