I occasionally get the following error message.

application error.
0x771c741a referenced [email protected] 0x00163920 memory could not be read.

I have had other codes as well but not made notes of them. Can anyone tell me if its anything to worry about. When I click the OK box nothing seems to happen. And nothing seems to be wrong. However i'm worried something is not being stored correctly.

I am quite new to computing so please excuse the lack of info.

Thank you in advance..

P.S. If you're johnwill many thanks..

Is this with just one application, or many applications? It's not a good sign, that's for sure. As to data getting corrupted, it really depends on the specific application and where the error occurs.

Thanks again Johnwill

It has happened with more than the one application.
Most recently, today with. msimn.exe. it said 0x77f82e55 referenced [email protected] 0x0000002c memory could not be "read".
click OK to terminate program.
Thanks for your reply but you now have me quite worried.
Any ideas on how to sort it out?:confused:

If it's more than one application, I'd probably suspect hardware first. Time to do a check-up on the innards of your case, and it probably wouldn't hurt to pick up a memory test and run it. The one I use boots from a floppy and does a pretty complete test, I've had good luck with it. MemTest86

I have run a memory test . This showed no errors.
Also tryed testing my hardware and could'nt find any errors but i'm not sure if the test was done correctly. Can anyone explain the best way to test hardware?
