How to Fix Referenced Memory Errors

By LaoA

Computer users who utilize Performance Logs on their Windows machine may get an error message similar to: "The instruction at "0x77f41d24" referenced memory at "0x00000000." You tend to get this type of error when you put an end to a counter log or insert an alert regarding use of your physical disk, then reboot your machine. However, if you learn how to add more virtual memory to your laptop or desktop, you can fix referenced memory errors.

Step 1

Go to "Start" and right-click on "My Computer." Navigate to the "Advanced" tab, then click the "Settings" option.

Step 2

Click on the "Advanced" tab once more under "Performance Options" and then click on the "Change" tab under "Virtual Memory."

Step 3

Go to "Start" and then "Control Panel." Click on "System" to determine the amount of RAM the computer contains. Configure the size of your virtual memory to one and a half times the amount of RAM shown.

Step 4

Reboot your laptop or desktop to complete the process.
