Windows Detected An Add-on Trying To Use System Memory Incorrectly


As soon as i logon to my secure work webmail account, i get a pop up = ulead mp3code v1. 0. 18 ulead system (www.Ulead.com). I then get the message noted in my question title and i am forced to exit windows. Thus, i am never able to check my work email from my new computer that uses windows 7/explorer 8. This never happened on my previous windows xp computer.

I was told to disable the 'sound' that plays when new email arrives. I have done this and it has made no difference. Digging deeper into the problem i read about dep which is getting far too complicated for me. What the heck is going on and how or who can fix this?

Printer Formatting Issue - Alldata Prints Incorrectly

I have new computer with windows 7, i use quick books v9, alldata, and alldata manage, also excel. The win 7 computer is the server to an xp based machine. Excel will not display correctly and will not print correctly. Alldata manage prints incorrectly. Looks like formatting issue because the print lines are cut in half horizontally.

Some parts of some print lines are misplaced vertically so that the horizontal line is choppy. Excel is same with displaying and printing. Quickbooks no printing problem. Also no problems printing from the xp machine using same programs and printer through the lan. I have attempted to download a new driver for the printer, but dont know how to check what version is installed.

Win 7 And The Shared System Memory

I have a nvidia go 7300 graphic card in my asus laptop with 4gb of memory, i installed windows 7 rc and like vista i can use only 2. 87gb of my memory because the rest is been used by the shared system memory for my graphic card. It's a bit stupid that anyone with 4 gb of memory can't use them. Windows should use the 4gb of memory and if necessary allocate more memory only the amount of memory needed and when isn't already needed free that memory so windows 7 can use the full 4gb. It's possible to fix this in future releases? Or is there a solution for this problem?

I have windows server 2008 installed in another machine with a ati x300 with hyper memory and windows uses the full 4gb even with a 1, 7gb allocated for shared system memory why windows 7 doesn't do the same?

Shared System Memory Question

I'm new to window 7, infect i just booted it up today. My question is, when looking at my gpu, knowing that it has a 1gig ddr3 module on it, why does windows automatically allocate 1789 mb twords the  graphics memory.

In other words:
Nvidia 9500gt 1 gig ddr3
4 gigs system memory
Shared system memory = 1789
Dedicated  video memory = 1024
Total available graphic memory = 2813

Why does the system allocate so much memory, and how can i decrease it, or remove it, so that the memory that is being allocated can be used by the system and not by the video card. Or if i'm misunderstanding the changes that have happened from xp, could someone explain it to me.

System setup:
Gigabyte p55
I5-750 2. 66ghz
9500gt 1 gig ddr3
4 gigs corsair 1066mhz

System Freezes During Memory Diagnostic

Built system 5 months ago. Worked fine for 4 months. There were no changes to hardware or software.computer freezes at all points of operation randomly. Will not complete windows memory diagnostic, will freeze anywhere from 5% to 20% completion of pass 1 of a 2 pass test. Tried all settings: basic, standard, extended, cash on cash off it didn't matter.

Please help, my components have warranties, is one of them bad. It wont complete any diagnostic without freeze. Is there any other way to identify the bad component or is it a setting that got screwed. I don't monkey with bios settings and generally haven't had any problems. This is my 3rd build and the only one i have had problems with. Running win7 x64.

Oh almost forgot this tidbit. Occasionally it wont reboot after freeze. I have even had to reinstall the cpu to get it to restart. Taking all proper precaution as far as not reusing the same paste properly cleaned etc.

Error - System Memory - When Play Game

I have frequently used the free cell game that came with vista on my pc. Suddenly started to get a "critical error" message when attempting to run it: "the system has run out of memory. Try closing some applications and trying again. ". The other game (solitaire, hearts, etc. ) All seem to open just fine, but i don't use them. Any suggestions as to how to troubleshoot, repair or reinstall?

System Error Memory Dump Files

Upgraded from xp to win7 using custom advanced option. Install went ok. I have an 80gb hd w/2gb ram. The hd is about 1/2 free space. After opening a windows session for several hours, system error memory dump files occupy more than 35gb hd space creating the low disc space warning. In order to correct the problem i must restart using the chkdsk/f utility. When chkdsk/f is run step 4 of 5 takes a long time apparently repairing errors. When the reboot is complete the free space is again available.

Repartition Memory Stick / Memory Card

How to repartition a memory stick or a memory card? So, i bought an 8 gb memory card and figured i could create a couple or a few partitions on it; perhaps exfat and fat32 ones. I fired up the disk management program only to find out that the flash memory disk has the shrink/extend/delete volume controls greyed out. I did manage to shrink the volume using the disk-part command line program but couldn't use it either for creating new volumes.

Where does this seemingly ridiculous and pointless restriction stem from? I only found a couple of instructions on how to partition a memory stick using some shady third party programs.

Installed Memory Versus Available Memory

I have installed windows 7 64 bit as a clean install on a second disk in a system with windows vista 32-bit running on the 1st disk. The install went fine, and the system is running well. However, when i check the system resources i am told that there is 4 gb of memory installed but only 3. 49 gb available. Is this because i have the windows vista disk in the system. The mbr shows both systems are bootable, and the windows boot file and winload.exe are located on the vista disk drive.

This leads me to believe that i have inherited the 32-bit memory restriction on windows vista. On another system, a new laptop that came with windows 7 64bit pre- installed, also with 4 gb memory, the system resources show that there is 4 gb of memory, without any restriction on what is available.

Joystick Not Detected

I'll describe the situation in detail. First, i upgraded to windows 7. When i had installed my games, i tried to add my joystick. I discovered windows 7 doesn't support standard gameport devices, only usb. No problem, i have a converter cord that lets me use my gameport joystick on a usb port. I plugged it in and got nothing. No sound effect, nothing. I tried looking for it in the devices menu, the game controller menu, even the device manager, but it appears nowhere. It's as though it's not connected at all.

I thought it might be that the joystick is too old and not supported, but it's a microsoft sidewinder 3d pro, and it is apparently supported. I thought perhaps the usb port was faulty, but i have the same problem regardless of where i connect it, and other devices work normally on all the ports. I thought perhaps the adaptor was faulty, but my gampad works using it.

In the end, i went out and bought a saitek aviator usb joystick. I connect it and nothing. Exactly the same problem as the sidewinder. The drivers are up to date. The port is operating, the joystick works on my old computer, the adaptor works with the gampad, and all of them are supported by windows. I'm at a loss. What else could this be?

No Network Detected

I recently installed windows 7 on a brand new hard drive and it went fine. However, when i try to connect to the internet, nothing happens. I have downloaded the correct driver, i think, but it still doesn't work. In fact, windows doesn't even recognize my home network. There are no devices listed under device manager. I actually just got my pc back from the geek squad. They "fixed" the problem i brought it in for, but they forgot to plug my hard drive into my motherboard. I had to do that.could an unplugged cable to my network adapter be the issue? If so, what am i looking for?

Usb Devices Are Not Detected

I've been reading a lot of posts in this community and in similar ones and i tried all sorts of things suggested there with the hope that my problem gets solved. Unfortunately it hasn't happened so far, but at least i know i'm not the only one frustrated. I have a toshiba satellite l30-10t laptop, running windows 7 home premium, clean install after vista home basic oem.

After installing 7, my usb devices (wd 320 gb external hard drive, usb hub, mp3 player, flash drives, mobiles phones, digital camera) worked fine for a few days, then all of a sudden were not recognized anymore. I don't get any error message, the devices are powered (lights on, disc spinning), but drivers fail to load. I've already tried the following (the list is randomly ordered) with little or no succes at all:

- Reinstalling the os
- Updated bios
- Trying to update the usb drivers
- Uninstalling the usb controllers/reboot and let windows find them again, both in normal and safe mode.
- Shut down, unplug from main power supply (with the battery taken out as well), left it overnight and then boot again
- Erased all the installed usb devices in device manager using the "show hidden devices" feature
- Deactivated the usb selective suspension in the power scheme settings and the "allow computer to shut down device to save energy" (my windows is in italian, i'm sorry if not getting the right names in english) in the usb hub's settings - solved the issue for a few days.
- Deleted the upper and lower filters in the registry as suggested in one post - this only caused a blue screen each time i tried to reboot.
- Installed the latest driver for the ati chipset (or at least i think this is what i did)
- Used this tool http://www.Zhangduo.com/udi.html to find any unknown devices, it found a couple, usb controller and usb hub, but i couldn't get any drivers.

I've seen a solution that seemed to work for some, though it was for xp, change the disableselectivesuspend value in the registry, but i couldn't figure out exactly how since my registers look a bit different than described in the post.

Microphone Sound Not Detected

Microphone issues i recently got a hp computer with windows 7 installed on it, i got the updates, installed skype and when i went into a call, the other person couldn't hear my microphone, i know these things: it's not a problem with skype. It's not my mic, as it worked on the previous computer. Yes, the mic is unmuted, and plugged into the correct jack i've looked at all of the troubleshooting guides, and the only result i have received from any of them is a loud screeching sound from my mic when i click "listen" in the control panel>sound>recording>microphone area.

I've downloaded and installed any updates that the trouble shooting guide suggests i do. Yet still nothing. All i'm getting is the same screeching noise that i wasn't getting before, i checked all the mic settings and it's enabled, unmuted, and the computer says it's getting the signal from the mic, i even did a troubleshooting check and it said it found no problems. And again, i know for a fact it's not the mic itself because it was working on the previous computer, and while i was changing computers no damage was done to the mic.

Hp Deskjet 1000c Is Not Detected

Windows 7 professional is being used. The computer is a dell studio xps 9000. The usb cable is a sabrent "usb to parallel (printer ieee1284) cable". The printer is the hp deskjet 1000c. This computer does not have a lpt port. When the cable is attached to the computer's usb, the cable is recognized but the printer is not. I tried to print a word and an excel file and neither program could detect the printer. I also tried to use the virtual pc utility, in xp mode, with some works files and got the same results.

The windows 7 compatibility list did show this printer as being compatible. Do i need different drivers, a different cable or what?

Usb Adapter Not Being Detected

Okay, here's what i'm having a problem with. I purchased a mayflash n64 duel port adapter, which is supposed to be "plug and play". It says compatible with windows 98, me, xp, and vista. But my pc isn't even acknowledging that i've plugged something in! Is there something i'm missing here, or am i just out of luck because i bought into windows 7?(I've never had trouble using older programs/devices before. And i was really excited about using the n64 controller with the n64 games. )I searched for drivers, but since it's "plug and play" i couldn't find any.

Secondary Display Not Detected

I have two monitors on an nvidia 8600gts running windows 7. 1 is a generic dell 19" lcd that came with my room mate's computer, and the other is a 22" lg flatron. For a long time i had both running fine, primarily using the lg, and putting up documents on the dell. I disabled the dell to get a game to run, since it would not run with both monitors enabled, which was my first issue. Then, about 2 weeks later i shuffled my machine over a bit. One of the monitor plugs came loose, and now windows will not detect my lg screen.

This had happened before, and then came back about a week later, however both screens were enabled at that time. Now i cannot get the lg to be even found on my computer. I've tried the windows display settings, the nvidia control panel, even the hardware manager. I cannot detect the monitor anywhere. So, how can i get it back? I've got up-to-date drivers for the card, i've tried rebooting, unplugging and replugging, changing inputs, scanning for hardware changes, and everything else i could possibly think of. Please someone help me get both my monitors running.

Display Not Detected In 64-bit

Intel i5 750 2. 66 ghz gigabyte ga-p55m-ud2 matx 4gb ddr3 ram, 1. 5v 13333mhz corsair 450w vx series psu500 gb western digital hd nvidia 8600gt

I've ran into a problem after i reinstalled windows:previously i had 2 monitors connected. The pimary is a 23 inch monitor connected via dvi, the secondary is a 32 inch lcd tv connected via vga. Before the reinstall both monitors worked fine although the secondary (vga) display would show the startup (bios, starting windows etc) before switching to the primary (dvi) when the desktop appeared. When i reinstalled windows this time i disconnected everything bar the primary monitor, mouse and keyboard.

Now the primary monitor is working fine (and is also showing the startup process) but windows can't detect the second tv. Using control panel > display  > adjust resolution and clicking detect i get the message 'another display not detected'.nvidia control panel also fails to recognize the 2nd display. I've removed and reinstalled the latest nvidia drivers but the problem persists.

Intermittent Usb Not Detected Problem

My problem is the following: i have a genius traveler 315 laser mouse which i brought last summer and it worked perfect on my laptop. Recently i have bought a new laptop, on which the mouse does not work anymore.

The problem is very awkward, because the behavior of the mouse on the new laptop is completely random: on several occasions it actually worked perfectly when plugged-in, but most of the times (e.g. After restarting the os or unplugging the mouse and plugging it back) it didn't. This behavior is even stranger because on my old laptop and several others the mouse still works perfectly.

My first opinion was that the problem is with the usb or mouse drivers, but when i tried another mouse and an external hdd on the new laptop, they both worked fine. I even copied the usb-related drivers from my old laptop to the new one, hoping i could solve the problem that way, but the outcome was the same (on both laptops the os is win 7).

Another possibility was that one of the wires in the mouse's cord was broken, but i crossed that out, too, because i tried twisting the cord as much as i could while it was working on the new laptop and it still worked fine. The usb sockets on the new laptop are all working (i tried them all).

I know that the easy solution is to buy another mouse, but i rather figure out what is wrong with this one (or with my new laptop) than to spend money to replace a mouse that i know it is functional because i feel that that money would be wasted, i have no guarantee that the new mouse will work (if i'd buy a new one i'd still go for a genius) and, besides, i would be really glad if i could solve this awkward problem.

Dvd Rom And Rw Drive Not Detected

I installed fresh copy (no upgrade) of windows 7 last night and after the installation finish, i notice both drives were missing from my computer.

Dell dimension 9200
Missing drives - pbds- dvd+-rw dh-16w1s and tsst corp dvd-rom ts-353b

Under device manager - they appear with an !Exclamation! Over them, there is no window 7 drivers  on the dell support website for my computer. I have attempted to do the firmware upgrade but tsdnwin reports drive not found. I have deleted the drives from devices manager and shutdown then disconnect and reconnect the cables and boot, and the problem is still here. I have try diagnostics built into windows 7 and it didn't work. Drives are showing up in my bios, while booting. Is there anything else i can try?

Usb Storage Device Not Detected

I am using a 2gb "memory stick pro duo" plug into a "memory stick pro duo" to "memory stick duo" adaptor, this is then plugged into my trust "all-in-1 card reader" which is plugged into my computer. The computer however does not recognize that anything is plugged in and no error message shows up. In device manager i can see 2 "generic usb hub" which i know signifies the "all-in-1 card reader", but no other devices related to my memory stick show up.

I've tried this on two other computers and they both have the same problem. When i plug my memory card into my camera it can easily see the pictures stored on there. I was going to try to reformat the memory stick but if it can't be detected at all, how would i do that?

Usb Devices Not Detected - Bsod Driver_power_state_failure

I am using a toshiba satellite a505-s6025 running windows 7 pro 64-bit, 4gb ram, nvidia 310m graphics card. Things have been working well for a couple of months until yesterday, after i installed a western digital mybook world edition (1tb) and the most recent windows updates. After these installations, i have been having 2 problems:
 
1. ) First thing i noticed is that shutdown takes forever, and ends with a bsod with driver_power_state_failure message.
 
2. ) Secondly, none of my usb devices are being recognized anymore. Sometimes when i have these devices plugged before turning windows on they get recognized properly, but if i plug any usb devices after windows loads i do
Not get any recognition at all.
 
I've tried updating to the latest video drivers, bios, and uninstalling the programs that came with the wd drive (mionet and wd anywhere backup) but the problems haven't gone away.
 
Analyzing the memory dump led to this message:
 
On thu 5/13/2010 2:28:10 pm your computer crashed

This was likely caused by the following module: ntoskrnl.exe

Incompatible Program Detected Live Mail

I installed windows 7 about 3 weeks ago. Windows live mail worked fine. The past week when i click on windows live mail to open, it won't open unless i left click and go to troubleshooting. Then it tells me there is an incompatible application. I have to do that every time i want windows live to open. I can't seem to find where to correct the problem. It is very frustrating. I am not very experienced in computers and this is aggravating to have to open it that way all the time.

I can not find anywhere to email windows live and get their help! I keep sending them the error message but it does no good as the problem still exists! Is anyone else having this problem with windows 7? Does anyone know a phone number for windows live or windows 7?

Sb Audigy Detected But Live 24-bit Onboard

Windows 7 detects that my soundcard is a sb audigy but my msi k8n diamond motherboard has a creative ca0106 chipset and this was supplied with soundblaster live! 24 bit drivers. The drivers for the sb audigy work fine in producing sound but i would like to use the karaoke player application which came with the original soundblaster live! Software, and that worked fine in windows xp. How can i tell windows 7 that i have a live! 24bit soundcard not audigy sound-card?  I would then be able to reinstall the creative eax console program which was supplied with the motherboard and i will be able to sing karaoke again!
