Default Win XP system, Foobar2000 and Boom problem

In my Win XP system Foobar2000 and Boom do not work while all other similar applications do. Getting the error message for MP3: "Decoding failure at 0:00.000 (Unsupported format or corrupted file) Unrecoverable playback error: The parameter is incorrect. (0x80070057)"
Wrong codec?

I wrote some DJ music player software for my PC.
Worked well for many years.
Then one day it started to fail.
Spent hours debugging software and couldnt find the problem.
I then noticed PC started going wrong with other programs.
I reinstalled Windows and it was no better.
I did hard drive and DRAM checks using debug software.
They said they were fine.

In desperation I removed one of my DRAM modules but still no better.
I replaced it and removed the other and suddenly everything was good again.

I wasn't convinced there was anything wrong with the DRAM module as I hadn't had it long.

So got the motherboard manual out.
Apparently if you fit two DRAM modules they must be in same colour slots.
So I put the "faulty" DRAM module back in to the right coloured slot and its been fine since.

Not saying that's your problem but problems can in one of many sources.

Thank you for responding. I use 100% reliable Micron memory modules.
Not a big issue, I was just a little bit curious about that unnecessary dependency. It can be a missing registry key. In my system, most unused items have been removed.

Probably my last question: why is Foobar2000 so popular?

@N101N

to quote Byron...

"Mediocrity is achievable... this may explain its popularity"

There, may be my last answer too...
shields up, takes cover... slopes off to a Linux box... lol folks... don't take life too seriously..

I have not expected such a philosophical explanation. I agree that popularity is a poor measure of quality.

Yeah, I've been using Foobar2000 for many years, and that's running Win7-64. Can't believe someone's still using XP.
