At least twice recently, I have encountered the following type of error: "The instruction at "0x1234567" references memory at "0x000007D0". The memory could not be read (or sometimes "the memory could not be written to this address". (NOTE: the numeric references are not real, just made up.)

I understand what this means - that the memory address that the particular program is trying to write the particular instruction is probably being used by other software.

My question is: What do I do to solve the conflict. Reinstalling the program doesn't work. Is there a utility, within or separate from WIN XP to re-direct the instruction to a vacant memory address and, if so, how is this done? Anyone?

This is usually caused by incompatbilities in hard drivers and/or shoddy programming in an application. Does the error tend to happen wtih a certain app?

You may want to try updating all the drivers for the hardware on your machine and see if that helps
