I recently received the following error. The installation at "0x50128c50" referenced memory at "0x68316463". The memory could not be "written".

I took my hardware down and rebooted using recovery discs. That was on thursday. today i received the error again. any ideas??

Hi Rizado and welcome!

That's almost always caused by a 'bad' application that's trying to write to a part of RAM it's not allowed to use - hence the write failure. I used to get it regularly till I removed Adobe Pagemaker some years ago. Usually happened at shutdown during "saving settings" process. never seen it since I removed that app. It was just an annoyance, nothing more. I ignored it for months without any ill effects on the PC - no crashes or any other problems, just that.

You can either safely ignore it, or painstakingly find the the 'bad' application by a process of elimination (uninstall each third-party app. one at a time, run PC for a while. Do that until the error never appears. The app. you removed last is the culprit. Then you'll have to decide if you can live without that app. or just ignore the error it causes.
