Q: "0x00a96ce0"referenced memory at "000000000" couldn't be written".

Hello everyone
I have this problem for more than 3 months for now...

The INSTRUCTION AT "0x00a96ce0"referenced memory at "000000000" couldn't be written".

That's always what i get when i restart my computer,just before screen goes dark.
I believe that it has to do something with Microsoft updates.The reason i believe this, is that i once reinstalled my PC and didn't have any problem until i didn't update my PC.
And i posted here that thinking my problem was solved but unfortunately i was wrong.

Please if you have any tips on this one let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys. This morning I got a really strange error code. When I tryed to update Steam on my PC, this error message popped up;

"The instruction at "0x00172058" referenced memory at "0x00d1004". The memory could not be "read".

Click OK to terminate the program.

Lately, I have'nt been able to install WoW either, I install it all the way to 100% and then when I try to launch it, I obviously have to re-download all the patches but it prompts me that I have to install it again, even though it is all there.

Tryed downloading the full game digitally off of wow-europe.com too, I click run to get it started, nothing happens and then this message pops up.

"The instruction at "0x00182058" referenced memory at "0x0f070014". The memory could not be "read".

Click OK to terminate the program.

I don't know what's up with it. My freind told me to run a CHKDSK /R to see if there was anything wrong with my drive and it ran smoothly, although I must say it took about an hour or so.

So, that was complete, tryed to do it again and I still kept getting these error messages. But I saw something on my desktop that wasn't there previously. It is an error log. Here is the error log;

Hi there,

Is your computer a desktop or laptop computer? What is the brand/model of your computer may I ask? Please provide your computer specs when you get a chance. By knowing your computer specs, we would definitely be able to troubleshoot your computer issue more efficiently. Have you installed any software or updates recently?

Try this, download "MEMTEST86+" and put the program onto a bootable media(e.g. CD). Afterwards, reboot your computer and boot your computer to the Memtest86+ CD. Then, follow the on-screen instructions, and scan your computer memory for any errors.

Did this error come up all of a sudden? The error titles "Application Error", possibly a program error conflict somewhere.

Not much in your log, but you should have a security analyst look it over

In the meantime, Run the System File Checker to see if it resolves your IE issue.

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not reconized) (Note that there is a space between sfc and /scannow)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.


In all likelihood you will be prompted to insert the Windows XP CD.

I recently had a virus on my computer. During the time of cleaning and removing infected files my computer came up with a error message that I can't seem to find help on. When my computer starts up, the first thing that pops up is an error message stating that there is a rundll32.exe - Application Error. The message says, The instruction at "0x010017f1" referenced memory at "0x01000003c". The memory could not be "read".

I have downloaded and run just about every program that I can find to attempt to fix this error. I have searched my computer and registry for any of the numbers in the error message with no results. I have installed and run multiple antivirus and maleware removal programs, but have not been able to remove this problem. I sure hope you can help me with this final problem in cleaning up my computer issues.

Thanks in advance for all of your assistance.

Hi Chuck McD and welcome to TSF.

When did you first notice the issue? Is it the same when you start in Safe Mode (tap F8 repeatedly when starting up your computer and choose Safe Mode from the options. It could very well be a program that you have recently installed that caused the issue.

Geekgirl had some good advice on this forum for another user that may help here. Can you try some of the advice that she gave and report back

I would also suggest you start a new thread in the ' Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help' section and give then all the details they require to help you as you had a prior infection that may not have been fully resolved.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:




Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:





I'm not the only person to have this problem. I received a private message from a member of another forum where I posted about this problem several weeks ago. That person also has the same problem with the duration field.

Hello guys, the last week I've been strugling with these nasty BSODs. At first I thought it was my HDDs as ntoskrn.exe somewhat hinted towards that from googling it. My HDDs have been causing a lot of trouble earlier as well due to their somewhat long years of service. However, I've recently reformated my computer and installed W7 on a brand new Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD hoping the BSODs would go away, they didn't.

I googled BSOD and I stumbled upon this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. I'm somewhat desperate, as I need my computer working for both work, school and amusement.

I've been trying to run Memtest in order to test my memory but without any results. I'm also currently running on only on 4GB chip instead of two, to see if the problem still exists. Also, without any results.

This is the second time I'm writing this thread btw, I was just about to post it and my PC crashed.

Here is my two logs + dxdiag (last crash didn't generate a log oddly enough).

Here is additional hardware/gear that I use:

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
Razer Naga
Logitech G19
Logitech C920 (Webcam)
Corsair 750W PSU

My temperatures are also good. Both CPU and MB idles at around ~25. GPU's all good too. I'm also using a Corsair 650D chassi with dustfilters at both air-income so dust is minimal. On top off this, I use airpressure to clean away dust somewhat regularly and I also did exactly this 2 days ago when I reinstalled the pc.

Good evening, everyone.

I just started getting the following error message today:

'Explorer.EXE - Application Error
The instruction at "0x71ab6a55" referenced memory at "0x71ab6a55". The memory could not be "written".'

It happens on startup, and if I choose to click on something, several programs such as NOD32, my firewall, or my Creative Volume Panel may close. I used the computer earlier today and did not install anything in between this morning and when I got home. I also updated Windows XP, but it did not do anything.

Does anyone know what I can do about this? A Google search of this error did not return much.

Plan A:

Try to reinstall your Operating System,..i think some important Files of your OS has been corrupted,.

reason: computer is not properly shut down
some files are infected by a virus

Plan B: Try to download Fedora11 live CD using a torrent down loader. http://www.picktorrent.com/download/...1-x86_64-live/

And burn it to a CD-r and boot it (don't install) it's a Live OS on a CD.
then check you Hard Disk Drive if all your files are still there.

Plan C: Open your laptop (if you have a knowledge to open it properly)
and try to put your Hard Disk Drive to another computer and check it
if you Hard Disk Drive is still working properly or damage

Browser (IE7) will frequently redirect to a page with a message "Sorry we couldn't find "http://www.atdmt.com..." or "http://ad.doubleclick.com" or other various tags (though these are most common).

Web pages will often not load at all or will redirect while reading a webpage without any user action.

Occasionally it will simply say unable to load "actual web page trying to visit". Also oddly - problem seems to occur much more frequently in the morning than evening. This makes me wonder if it is a internet provider issue.

Problem has been occuring over the last 2-3 weeks.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

If I am logging in without setting password, and I am logging in network with "Public" profile, then will any other user, who can see my computer, be able to enter my computer and check the contents on my computer ?

I am connecting to a network and there are 6 other users connected to this network. In the set network location window, if I select the netwoek as "Home", does it mean that other 6 users will not be able to see my computer on network and if I use "Public", then all other six users will be able to see my computer on network ?

Ok so I'm using a custom visual style made by another user however I don't really like the buttons used that I mentioned above. The creator states it is acceptable to change the theme to however you like as long as you don't redistribute it anywhere.

Ok so I opened up the .msstyles file (using Restorator) located in the theme folder of this VS. I went into the images directory and located what seems to be the images used for the buttons. Intuitively, it seems like it would make sense to replace those images with different ones (perhaps from another visual style) and it should change them. However, would this actually work? Could the theme get messed up in some other way (like proportions or something if the new button images are smaller)? I don't know of any other way to change them that would be easy.

But I did run into another problem. For some visual styles I can't even locate those buttons in the images directory. Where else would they be?

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!

Problem:

Everything was running fine until yesterday, when my PC crashed with the BSOD giving me the "IRQL not less or equal" error. I ignored it and carried on- which resulted in the computer crashing with "Memory management" blues whenever I started something that was not the browser (It later started crashing on browser start too).

I first thought it was the temperature - Memtest95 and GPUtemp said otherwise.

So I started testing the RAM (taking one DIMM out) with Memtest86- It passed 4 cycles, so I shut the PC down and put the other DIMM in.

When I turned the PC on again, there was no signal sent to my screen, and none to my keyboard (and the HDD light on the front of the case did not start blinking like usual). The fans were running, so I figured something might be wrong with the DIMMs I put in. I removed the graphics card and plugged the screen into the motherboard.

Now the screen gets a signal, background lighting starts up, and then it shuts down to hibernation again. This repeats itself until the machine is shut down manually.

I got no idea what to do.

If I click on "Ok to terminate program" or "Cancel to debug", my computer stops responding.
