AMD Radeon Adrenalin release date, new features, compatible graphics cards
Hi my computer keeps showing low memory, yet l have used less then 10% of my space, have had it reformatted and still the problem exists, it stops me from opening windows media player which gives the message the instruction at "0x591c28e9" referenced memory at "0x595c3f78" the memory could not be "read" and l'm yet again sick of trying my technical support l have done everything they have asked and still no joy maybe you guys can help me. also it stops mail from being opened, and can not use incredimail at all, is it a graphics problem?
and is it XP -
are you using older programs which tend to grab all memory available
Select its Short cut - right click - select properties - compatability - select 'windows 95 mode' - tick - 'run in 640X480 screen resolution' - tick - 'disable visual screens' - and tick - 'turn off advanced text screen - then selected short cut tab - advanced - 'tick run in sepperate memory space' click apply -
Yes it sounds like you might be confusing Hard Drive space and Random Access Memory (RAM).
If you have only 10% of your Hard Drive filled and are getting error messages relating to memory it is referring to RAM.
You will need to know how much RAM is in your PC ie, 128Mb, 256Mb, 512Mb etc.
You will also need to know which programs are running using msconfig or a third party app like Belarc Advisor from click here
It would also be useful if you could tell us which operating system you are using ie, Windows 98, WIN 98SE, Win ME, Win XP Home or Pro, Linux etc.
Hi Indigo 1 l'm running xp professional, its 512mb, l downloaded the thing what info should l be looking at? the hard drive has loads of room but and l am a novice so please be patient with me it says on memory module 480 megabytes installed memory slot 0 has 256 and slot 1 has 256 does this help you to help me? thank you
Hi Andy and SethHaneil, thankyou for your responses l have hardly any programmes on my pc as after reformatting have only got msn, internet explorer, incredimail, media player and microsoft office oh and my modem of course.. have tried your suggestions to no avail any other ideas would be much appreciated. thankyou
is the error message saying you have not enough
From another helpline:-
When I go to open WMP, I get the error message: An internal application error has occurred. Once I click ok to close, this message appears: The instruction at "0x591c28e9" referenced memory at "0x595c3f78". The memory could not be "read"
Can anyone explain? I've tried to re-install, but it just tells me that I have the latest version.
Maybe sharing a memory allocation????
try for an earlier or later version as player to see if that helps
OK that's fine, you have 512Mb total Memory, 480Mb free to use, and two "sticks" each of 256Mb.
So it is not a RAM problem.
I suspect that one of the windows applications is causing the error and as Sethaniel says it is possible that it could be Windows Media Player.
Media Player will temporarily write files to your Hard disc while playing in a section called Page File or Swap File, if this is set too small then you will get memory errors as there won't be enough space for the task.
Sorry but I can't help any further as I am not experienced in this area but at least we narrowed it down a little and hopefully someone with more knowledge will be able to pick it up from here.
Don't worry it can easily be dealt with.
What's your Operating System?
