:thumbsup: Ok, I really did it this time! I work at a school with no technology person right now...so guess what...me with about 1 yrs. (home) experience is the inhouse "expert" long story short. I updated my principal's wndows 2000, he needed 35 critical updates, also updated his microsoft office 2003. Now, here's my problem. Whenever computer starts up (without clicking on a program etc.) here's message:
"06000208a referenced memory at ox003d06b7 the memory could not be written"
Please help me save face (and job!) any advice?

I can sympathize with you, bkaren. I'd like to help, but I'm no expert.

You might know about this feature of the windows operating system. Since a version of Windows2000 is involved, this info taken from my windowsXP probably doesn't apply exactly. It might help in some way to see it. I'm hoping someone with win2000 experience will see it and correct me. :thumbsup:
So an error message is shown on screen. One kind will be followed by a second box, which gives you an option to get more information about it. There are several other types. Since many actions done using the system can potentially be listed as 1 of 3 kinds of events,
  • Information
  • Warning
  • Error
you might find more information about any of them by using the Event Viewer built into winXP. An easy way to get there is Start-->My Computer-->right-click select "manage" and you'll see this. Three lists are maintained constantly, Applications, Security & System. Each should be checked for information. All events are dated, so that's often the way to focus on finding a particular error. Locate it, and right-click the highlighted line to get more info. Click a link here to get even more at Microsoft Help & Support Center. I'm not sure how familiar you are with this service, but you'll see the details of the particular error this way. Read the details and then perhaps follow through with the link to the Knowledge Base Articles below the details. At least you can give it the "old college try". Communicate back to us what you find, or questions that inevitably arise when getting Microsoft-style supprt & help.

This could be a driver conflict. Try download and installing all the latest drivers for the video card, sound card, modem, network card, printer etc.

As this is a school puter and is prob" a legit copy, I would be emailing MS and asking them for some support, Take a screen shot of the error and send that as well.

Just my 2 cents worth.

If you have a pair or more RAM, you can have them switch places on the motherboard.
