Default Memory read/write error

My computer (after the CD-RW drive burned out) started returning
"Mem read write error, something 0002E50F, expected 00002782
Decreasing system memory"

and I have no clue what to do to fix it. It decreases the system RAM from 192 to 128 MB. It makes no difference in performance when I run X-Plane 5.52 or NASCAR Thunder 2003 with my high detail mods.

Almost sounds like you had a power surge that caused or was caused by the CD burner dying on you and it the process one of your ram chips burned out.

If you don't use a surge protector it may be that or you had something go wrong with your power supply or the voltage regulators on your motherboard. If you have a surge protector then I'm thinking there's a problem with you bios or the motherboard itself.

this reminds me of a time when I bought this fuck POS of a motherboard. anything that was over 32MB it would subtract 16. The soundcard on it had the left and right channels flipped. No options in the BIOS or no dip switches or anything. It was fucked up.

Yeah. I'm kinda hoping i won't have to take out one of the mem-sticks just because an old ISA-port sound card fucked things up. It may have fried the motherboard. At the time of writing, the comp is running right now, A.O.K, but it's running at about .9 as fast as it is capable of, from what I can tell. Oh, and when my brother tried to fix it, it feels like he fucked it up worse, because it's now doing it at every startup. When I said, "something 08054565", I meant, "read 08003938". The only problem with the CD burner is that it stopped reading discs last night.

Try this, run SFC on the dos prompt. It may be your CD burners fine but a sector on your hard drive that has a system file that runs/ controls/driver for the CD burner is in a bad sector and not only causes the CD Burner to not run right or at all but is so corrupted that it causes error in your ram to.

It'll attempt to read the disc, but it just won't. Huh. May be a dirty lens, or shit's f'd up in the System folder.
