"O x76081203"

The first character you typed is a capital o .
There is no capital o in a memory address.
There are no spaces in a memory address.

That should probably be:

Memory addresses of faults are almost always unique to your own computer, and therefore, useless for searching on the web with.

When I search using: 0x76081203
I get only one "hit" , so obviously that's not a specific location a lot of people are getting an error at.

Is there any OTHER message on the screen when you get that error.
STOP: 0X000000xx (we don't need the stuff in brackets beside that)
A specific file may be named on the screen, often at the end of the info.
There may be a link to "more info" or similar - if so, click on that, if it names a specific file, tell us the name of it.

"Above error appears with error sound "

A standard Windows error sound that you also get for other errors, or an oddball sound that you get with only this Hoyle game when you get this message mentioning 0x76081203 ??

If the latter, or in any case, sometimes bugs in sound drivers / software can cause errors in other programs. Try temporarily disabling your sound adapter , playing the game, then exiting the game.

Control Panel - Sounds and Audio Devices - the first screen you see shows the name of the sound adapter - copy that down.
RIGHT click on My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager .
Open up the Sound, Video, and Game controllers category by clicking on the + before it.
RIGHT click on the name of your sound adapter and click on Disable in the list that pops up to Disable the sound adapter.
Answer Yes to the message that pops up.
Close Device Manager by clicking on the X top right of it's window.
Try the game, and exiting the game.

If you no longer get the error, you could try loading newer sound drivers.

If you still get the error, you could try un-installing that particular Hoyle game, and installing it again.
If it requires you must enter a code to play the game the first time you play it, make sure you have the code you need before you un-install the game.
Control Panel - Add Remove Programs - Un-install the listing for the game, reboot at least once.
Install the game.
