Errors With 8gb Of Memory

So i have had windows 7 now for several months and immediately after the release date i have been reviving problems with my computer crashing saying system memory is to low. I am not sure which update has caused this and there are several since then.

It occurs usually when playing gta iv which is a high memory task, but also occurs when watching a simple dvd keep in mind i have 8g of memory and have already tried turning page file system off. In the past that's how i ran vista 64 premium with zero problems.

I ran memory test in bios yesterday and all is well, curious to know if this is an update that microsoft has released which is now crashing my computer, or furthermore a graphics card update error. I went on an update frenzy right about the time of the release date. Learned my lesson there one update at a time and check for errors. I am considering at this point removing all updates. I am up for any suggestion's. Except clean install because that at this point is not an option.

I will say i was in love with windows 7 for almost a year during beta testing, zero errors during my whole testing period, and now have become more frustrated than ever.

Cf Card Only Shows System Reserved Partition When Plug Into Card Reader

My company uses industrial computers for controlling equipment. These computers use 16gb cf for hard drives with windows 7. If i remove the cf and plug it into my laptop using a card reader, all i see are the files on the system reserved partition. The other partition which holds the windows 7 files is blank. If i put the cf back in the industrial computer all of the files are visible. Any ideas on why i can't see the files thru the reader? Thanks for the assistance.

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

Tried all settings: basic, standard, extended, cash on cash off it didn't matter.

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.

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?

Blue screen error on startup with 8gb ram but not 4 gb ram. It seems that when i install only 4gb ram all is fine. But when i install the next set for a total of 8gb ram i will get bsod on cold boot.

All drivers are up to date along with the bios and all firmware.

4105 Mb Of 8gb Ram Assigned To Hardware Reserved

4105 mb of 8gb ram assigned to "hardware reserved" with 64-bit windows 7, why? And how do i fix it?I managed to run out of memory today with only firefox and ms publisher running. Given that i invested in 8gb of ram and a 64-bit operating system, this was completely unexpected. I've verified that the system type is 64-bit operating sytem and can see installed memory (ram) 8. 00 gb (3. 99 gb usable).

Given how much on-board memory is on both my cpu and gpu, it seems like very little memory should be "hardware reserved". What might be causing this issue and how can i investigate it? Searches on the internet all just talked about how 32-bit windows couldn't read the other memory, but i don't have 32-bit windows.

System info:intel core i7 860, 2. 8 ghz8192 mb ocz platinum ddr3 1600 mhz ram (ocz3p1600lv2g) in 4 sticks of 2gb ea, installed in matched pairs asus p7p55d pro mobo (which i despise and predict this is some retarded bios issue or raid 0 issue - running version 1207 bios (12/7/2009))evga geforce gtx 260, factory super-clocked at 602 mhz with 896 mb memory (the gpu is older than the above hardware)2 150gb western digital raptor 10, 000 rpm hdds running in raid 0

Missing Ram - 8gb Bought 6gb Installed

I have a new dell computer with windows 7 pro. I purchased 8gb of ram. In system information and anywhere else i can find a reference to installed ram i am being told that the installed physical memory is 6gb ram. I have taken this up with the dell partner that i bought the computer from but they have not come back to me. I have posted on the dell forum and been told to look in the bios but i am not a techi and i do not know how to do that. Now a moderator on the dell forum is telling me to post on a microsoft support forum as they think it is a win 7 problem. So can anyone help please?

Bsod Related With Dxgmms1 When Playing Games Using 8gb Ram

I just built a brand new computer when a fresh install of windows 7 home ultimate 64 bit. This computer has never had any other os on it. I am having an issue when playing dragon age origins that the computer with bsod when i have 8 gb of ram in the computer. With only 4 gb in, the computer is rock solid.

I have tested all the ram in memtest86 overnight with no issues. I have tried different sets of the 4 gb and they all work fine. The problem is when i try to use 8 gb. I think the are the most important components. I have installed all windows updates, have the latest mobo bios, and the latest video drivers.

Dell Xps 710 - 8gb Ram With Win 7 64-bit

Unable to get to 8gb ram on x64 dell xps 710 windows 7. Less than 6 works fine. Notice asymmetric vs interleaved and sdram speed listings change. Dell xps710 did clean install of windows 7 x64 from xp. All went well and things worked fine for a while. Decided i wanted to get more out of my x64 machine so decided to upgrade the ram from 4x1gb to the system max 4x2gb. I originally ordered the wrong ram (pc2-6400 800mhz) and when i installed them the system wouldn't even turn on.

Picked up the correct pc2-5300 667mhz 4x2gb units and after a clean install i put 2x2gb sdrams in with 2x1gb original sdrams. Machine shows 6. 0 gb installed and lists them as 667mhz and dual asymmetric. Everything works fine.

If i installed 4x2gb sdrams, the system says 8gb installed but lists them as 800mhz and dual interleaved? Won't make it through startup. Will try to do a repair but nothing works. Go back to 6 or 4 gb and things are fine? Any ideas?

Explorer Will Not Copy 8gb Iso Image File To External Drive

Windows explorer will not copy an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space says file is too large for the destination file system. I tried copying an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space and windows explorer keeps giving me the message "file is too large for the destination file system".

Then i tried copying the same file to a separate partition on my hard drive and it worked smoothly. I also tried copying a folder containing the sae content and about the same size and it also copied easily. I don't understand why it will not copy the 8gb iso file. By the way i am using windows 7 ultimate.

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.

Live Tv Shows No Signal But There Is

Windows media center tv hangs after re-installing windows 7, quite naturally i had to re-tune tv within windows media center. It appears to have download all the channels and schedules, but it states there is no tv signal when i know there is. In the past it has looked for a tv signal and just hung. At least i get a message now stating that there is no signal. All the channels are there complete with channel numbers and programs. I decided to re-tune, but how can i do that? Would a file delete be in order?

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.

Pop Up Shows Recovery Drive D Full

Recovery drive d full, i have a dell inspiron 545 laptop that came with windows vista and i upgraded it to windows 7. I just bought this computer in november and ever since i installed windows 7 i get pop-up messages every few minutes that say recovery drive d is full click here to free up space. Every time i try that, it doesn't work. I had a new hard drive g set up and also my c drive has lots of space but when i try to send folders or do anything with them, it says that i need administrator permission.

It also won't allow me to change and allowances because i need administrator permission. I have looked at other answers to the same question but these answers don't work for me. I have tried the following steps:

1. Click the start button.
2. Type diskmgmt. Msc in the search box and press enter .
3. In the disk management window, right-click the recovery partition.
4. Click change drive letter and paths.
5. Click remove. When i try this, i get two messages that stop me from being able to select remove.

The first one is from disk management and says, "some programs that rely on drive letters might not run correctly. Are you sure you want to remove this drive letter?" I click yes because it does not let me close out. After i click yes to that, i get one from virtual disk manager and it says, "assigning or removing drive letters on the current boot or page-file is not allowed. "What do i do? Please give me an answer that is not the same! It doesn't work for me!

Computer Shows Usb Device Is Connected When It Is Not

Recently i started up my computer and plugged in my ipod to charge it (as usual). The charging worked fine, but a window popped up saying that it failed to install the proper software. It also started looping the sound played when it finds a new usb device, despite the fact that my ipod had remained plugged in and apparently connected the whole time.

Naturally, i unplugged my ipod. The computer kept giving me the generic error message (device software was not installed, or whatever; no specific error number), as well as playing the sound every 10 seconds or so. I tried restarting my computer, to no avail.

When i look in my device manager, it shows that there is two unknown devices present. But there is nothing connected to my usb drives. I tried uninstalling the unknown devices; the sound continues to play, and after a minute or so the unknown devices reappear in my device manager. I also tried uninstalling all of my usb root hubs, but this did nothing: the sound kept playing and the unknown devices reappeared.

I'm out of ideas and i haven't been able to find any info on the internet pertaining to this problem.

My computer is an hp pavilion dv3t-2000, running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. Also present in my usb controllers menu is:

 - Intel(r) ich9 family usb universal host controller - 2934 through 2938
 - Intel(r) ich9 family usb2 enhanced host controller - 293a and 293c
 - Usb root hub (x5)

Let me know if you need any more details on my set-up. I'm no pro with this computer stuff, but i'm relatively able, in most cases, given the right support to refer to.

Clean Up All Programs Shows In Start Menu

I am going from xp to 7. In the start>all programs listing all programs downloaded is listed. In xp i could go to "documents and settings", create folders and put files listed in all programs into separate folders. This resulted in very few folders containing the downloaded files. For example, i had files listed as "business", "security", "internet" etc. How do i accomplish this in 7 so that my all programs listing is primarily folders and all the downloaded programs. I hope i made myself clear.
