My laptop Dell 1501 Insperion computer is giving the following error when I restart it (sometimes).

 

0X7750cc86 error at memory location 0X02841090 It says I have a APP error memory could not be written

 

I have run the memory tests I can find in the BOOT menus

 

 

Do I have a real problem?

I pulled them out and made sure they were clean, when I put them back I used a velvet hammer to gently insert them.

 

There is a memory test that we use here at work. Let me see if I can find it.

Look here for a download.

 

MEMTEST86 use the CD option.

 

What OS are you running?

 

My guess is that it is an app that's failing on restart due to a registry/startup (stuff automatically started by windows) error. Install anything new just before it happened? Download any WMV or AVI files? Have you tried rolling back to a restore point? Failing that it could be a trojan virus.

At what point in the startup does it occur?

 

Have you run multiple AV programs in Safemode? (AVG, AVAST, STINGER etc.).

It shows up when I am restarting, before the computer shuts down. Right at the point when the blue screen appears, the message comes up.

 

When stuff is reloading, there are no errors.

 

By the way this has been going on for several months.

 

And it is not consistent, it does not show up every time I restart

 

I am running XP svc pack3

svchost.exe is a prime XP target for viruses. It could also be from a failed MS-Update. Take a look at Task Managers process tab and reorder the list by CPU usage to see if any process (including svchost.exe, wsus.exe etc..) is grabbing a large share of the cycles. I would try the free down loads for virus scans that I mentioned in safe mode.

Do you either have a registry maintenance program or do you feel competent editing your registry?
