Also, to help determine what drivers you will need, please download Everest Home Edition HERE. It will tell you all we need to know about your computer. Install Everest and run it then attach a copy of the log to this thread.

That's normal for that to occur since those are locations in memory and items are not processed in the same part of memory each time they are used.

Please download and run the program I listed in my previous post.
