Forgive my ignorance, I'm more of a Mac guy and still learning the ins and outs of XP. I've been having various and sundry problems with the system, I'll spare you the whole list and try to keep it relevant. I recently replaced my boot drive and reinstalled windows, and several of the problems seem to have been solved, the culprit was apparently a faulty control board on the dirve. However, I'm now running into a problem while trying to format an external firewire drive, which is:
I get an error message (red circle, white x) saying, "The instruction at '0x77f5215c' referenced memoryt at '0x00000000'. The memory could not be 'written'. Click on OK to terminate program"
Does this error message indicate a problem with my RAM, perhaps a bad memory stick? If so, I have two of them, so to figure out which one it is, I guess I should pull one and reboot. Does it matter which slot the remaining one is in? Or, is there a better way to test for this problem?
