Default Error code on reboot

Every now and then I get this error message when rebooting, just as windows is shutting down it comes up with this error:

The instruction at "0x76e425c8" referenced memory at "0x76e425c8". The memory could not be "written".

Everything freezes here until I kill the main power A little help plz!

Could be anything really.

Most likely some program has not shut down and caused the error to be thrown because other hardware is no longer responding to it, or something like that.

Only general suggestions can be made.

Make sure, drivers and windows is up to date, malware and virus scans (Malwarebytes).

Close all programs before shutting down.


Start>Run>regedit>hkey current user>control panel>desktop

Double click the entry that says "autoendtasks"

Change the value from 0 to 1.

99% of the time when you see a error in reference to a error in writing to memory that means that there is a issue with the RAM. run MemTest86.

Memtest86 - Download Page

download the ISO and burn it to DVD with ImgBurn.

Restart the PC with the MemTest disk in the tray and let it run for a period of time and report the results of the test.
