  • Hi Rick,

    Thanks for your help, and sorry for the late reply.  I know I didn't give you enough info, so when I went to Best Buy (with more info), I was told the reason was likely my MSN gamesbar, and the fact that it took up a lot of RAM...sure enough, when I deleted the gamesbar, the error code completely disappeared.  Thanks again and take care!
