Unable To Create A Virtual Memory Pagefile.sys

Since i upgraded from vista ultimate 32-bit to windows 7 ultimate 32-bit i have been unable to create a virtual memory pagefile.sys. Everything was fine before the upgrade but no longer. If i try and specify new vm parameters on the vm dialogue everything appears fine. The new drive and size specification are accepted without incident. I click ok on all the parent dialogue boxes until they are all closed. If i then drill down through the same dialogue chain, when i return to window where i originally entered the details, they are nowhere to be found. My previous location and size specification are gone.

Win 7 Virtual Hard Drive To Install In Ms Virtual Pc

I test using microsoft virtual pc and virtual hard drives to emulate multiple operating systems and ie browsers on one machine. This is a core function of ensuring my products are can be supported on a wide range of environments. My company is not going to upgrade to windows 7 for some time but i expect many of my clients will upgrade soon. I'd like to tell them that i support windows 7 but i cannot find a virtual windows 7 with ie8 hard drive to install and test. Is microsoft going to make one available and if so, when?

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.

Win 7 Games

In all of the games that came with windows 7, the cards randomly flash next to my cursor (the one nearest as well as the cards adjacent). Also, and more importantly, my menus all flicker in transparency(but still work) until i open an option and try to change it, then when i click "ok" or "cancel" the window does nothing (appears to freeze) and requires me to "x" out of it, so i cant change any of the options such as difficulty or appearance. Is there an update/download/fix for this?

Win 7 And Games

Having just spent loads of money on a new computer with windows 7 on it i have now found that most of my games (even ones with games for windows on the box) will not install or let you get so far into the game, then stick it to you with "error shutting down" some examples of the games are, panzers cold war (game for windows ha ha) anno 1701, cossacks 2 battle for europe, imperial glory, faces of war, and numerous other games, as i only really have a computer to play games, and only have a basic knowledge of computers, i was wondering if i was missing something or was going to spend the rest of my days pulling out what little hair i have left because i bought a programme that doesn't want to play my games with me, please tell me know i didn't waste my money (ps this comp is a vast upgrade on the one i used to play the games on in terms of graphics cards ect so cant see the problem there).

Have To Open Games Twice

Why do i have to open my games twice? I'm having trouble with my games. I have to open the file two times to play the game. When i open the first time (double click or enter), the mouse icon indicates that it is opening the game (it turns to be a spinning blue circle), but then nothing happens, and the cpu usage gadget is rising to about 60 %, usually it's just running at 2-25%. At the second time i open, the game is opened, but the game is so lagged (i wonder if it's because the cpu usage is becoming so high).

So is there anyone can help me? At least tell me what is this problem i am facing. Those games are fable : the lost chapter, gta iii and need for speed underground 2.

Mouse Trouble In Games

Ok, i recently installed windows 7 and received a new computer. When i am playing this online game, which i have played before on my old computer, one of the attacks requires you to hold the right mouse button down for 2-3 seconds. You can also hold the mouse button down for an infinite amount of time after the 2-3 seconds until you release it, which initiates the attack. Now on this computer, when i try the attack, the system releases the mouse button for me, even while i hold down the right mouse button. I am wondering if it is the system, or something windows 7 is reading.

No Mouse Cursor In Games

I have recently installed windows 7 rc and update all drivers up to latest direct x, but for some reason when i play certain games eg. Mass effect, or dow2 the mouse cursor will not show up and i have to guesstimate where it is to do anything. I have tried the program in vista sp2 compatibility and xp sp3 and even run under admin privileges is there anything else i can do to get this working. The specs of the pc are amd turion64 x2, nvidia 8400 geforce go, and 3gb of ram, and it worked fine when i was running it on vista

Games File Problems

I've inserted 2 shortcuts to websites in the microsoft games file. (The one with solitaire, chess etc)

Neither of them work (they did in vista)

Now i can't get rid of the logo's !Right clicking does nothing. I can seem to move them but they remain locked in the games window. Any idea how i can get rid of them ?

The other problem i have is that i can't seem to move the games into the order i want. I know i can reorganise, but why can't i just click and move them like i used to ?

Microsoft Games Keep Disappearing

Some of my microsoft games (e.g, freecell, solitaire, etc. ) Periodically disappear from my desktop - usually after the computer wakes from sleep mode. When that happens, i also cannot open them from the control panel. I've noticed that others seem to have this problem too. I've tried the check/unchecked games trick discussed in the forums. This doesn't work. I've been able to use the system restore, but it is tedious to keep doing that and i'm afraid that i might lose some programs or work one time doing that. I've run anti-spyware and anti-virus programs but they haven't found anything. Anyone have any suggestions?

Games Wont Load

When i click on the game (minesweeper, for instance), the computer indicates that the game has loaded but then it never runs. It says it ran, but the game never pops up. Chess titans gives me a directx3d error, although the computer is brand-stinking new so i do not know why it would not have all of the .dll files it needs for a pre-loaded microsoft game. I am running an acer 5534 laptop with an amd athlon 64 x2; ati radeon hd3200 graphics, 4 gb mem and 320 gb hdd.

I know this is a trivial issue, but it shows a lack of quality for the supposedly "improved" windows 7.

Vista Games Explorer

My games explorer on vista home premium 32 bit loads up slow. I open it up and it takes between 30 seconds to a minute before it loads in. In this time the laptop seems to hang till it loads. Does anyone know why or how to fix? I think it's a problem other people have had looking around the net on forums but no solutions i have found as yet. Once opened up subsequent openings tend to respond quickly until the next re-boot! Although it can recur in the same boot session if i do quite a bit of stuff such as play a few games and then try and relaunch the games explorer. Can't understand why it's so slow to open. It wasn't always like this!

I had the same issue on another computer running vista so it seems to be common.

Crashes On Sims And Hp Games

I have played sims 3 and hp games on my vista without any problems until recently. I installed the new sims 3 ambitions and it worked fine. I let my 12 year old sister on to play and as soon as she got on, it crashed (just sims). I figured it was a fluke and started sims again, she was able to play without any problems. Unfortunately, she left sims on my computer for 6 hours while we were out and i didn't find out until later. The next day, i got on sims and after about 15 minutes it crashed on me.

I tried again, same thing. I restarted my computer and tried again. Now, after about 3 minutes on sims the entire computer shuts off. I figured it was just a sims thing and tried to get on my hp games. After about 5 minutes on that my computer shut off. This only happens on games and i am afraid that the video card is messed up.

Games Slowing Down Computer

I played command and conquer 4 on my very old computer. It can be played but the graphics are bad and it is very slow. If i continue playing the computer might crash. So i planned to play on my new computer. But my parents don't allow that. Reasons are games may have viruses. Viruses may hack my computer and get information, such as bank accounts. (I have installed bitdefender 2010 internet security) games make my computer unreliable and slow.

Can you check for me whether these reasons are true. I know too many games running at a time will make a computer slow. But what if my system requirements satisfy the minimum requirements for the games, will it slow the computer down? Also, i defrag and cleanup my pcs regularly so don't include that my computer will get slow over a short period of time (1 year).

Installing Xp Games For Win 7

Ok so i recently upgraded to windows 7 and problem is any game i try to install on it that worked flawlessly on xp now won't even install it just freeze. Like for example fable  and yes i've tried the whole troubleshooting/compatibility for anyone about to suggest that. I've even looked at the possibly of trying the xp-mode  but one problem. I am running the home edition 64-bit and am sure as _ not to spend more money upgrading to the professional. I'm about ready to just wipe the damn win 7 os and put xp back on unless someone comes up with some answer!

Mouse Issues While Playing Games

I used to run windows vista 64 bit home premium on this laptop, but ever since upgrading to windows 7 64 home premium, i've noticed issues with my mouse. Primarily while i'm playing a game, it will have these moments where the mouse will either become completely unresponsive, or while i'm turning ((usually in first person games)) that it'll look like my screens clipping horribly, i can't control it. It tends to happen every 2 to 3 minutes or so, it's very consistent, but it only lasts for about 3 or 4 seconds. Even in this short window that it happens however, it ruins whatever i'm doing at the moment, it's extremely frustrating. Has anybody else had this issue or does somebody know what i can do to rectify this issue?

Game Information In Games Window

The games window is a pretty nice feature of vista. And since service patch 2 my customizations are no longer being 'forgotten' which has resulted with me actually using the games window.

A nice thing about the games window is how it automatically organizes and groups games based on genre. For example, the game oblivion gets nicely tucked away in the 'role-playing' category. Warcraft 3 finds its way into the 'strategy' category. Windows does this automatically. It's helpful.

However, i can't find any way to change how vista organizes these games in the event i feel vista hasn't categorized a game properly. For example, quake 3 sits in the category called 'unspecified. ' i assume that perhaps since this is an older game vista can't find information about it to properly categorize it. Is there a way that i can categorize it? I've tried drag and dropping the icon for quake 3 to the 'action' category but that doesn't work.

A more recent title that doesn't properly categorize itself is a role-playing game called drakensang. Currently drakensang sits in the 'unspecified' category. I'd like to re-categorize this as well but i can't seem to find a way to do it.

Getting Games To Run Full Screen

I bought this new toshiba satellite laptop last week. It has windows 7. None of my games will run full screen. I never had any problem with them on either of my other computers or systems xp or vista. I have w7 home premium.

I am just sick with trying to figure this out. The only option after this is to simply return the new laptop and buy a used one that runs on xp or vista. If there is anyone who could help me, i would be eternally grateful. I am so upset with all of this. I own a gaming site and none of my 33 games will work now with the windows 7 program.

Game Icons Missing In Games Folder

I am having an issue in the vista games folder. I have a few games installed on my computer that disappeared from the games folder. When i went into the actual folders from the game and moved the .exe file for the game to the games folder all i get is a low rez copy of the file. Not the nice picture with all the info from the game that the others have. I've tried a bunch of stuff and looked forever for a solution. Anyone here have this happen to them and know how to resolve the problem?

Tcp Error - Unable To Play Games

Tcp errors. Currently my tcp ports on my computer do not work for any of my games when i ping the game specifically byond.com it shows a connection within 80 sec the fastest time. I run on windows xp iv tried port checking with multiple sites and all answer the same with port refused connection. I have went through multiple processes to fix the problem by going to internet provider and my router provider. I run on several different ports that i opened through port triggering with netgear and none of them work but the udp does.

I was wondering if anyone could have the answer on how to solve this problem with my tcp ports so i can go back to my game programing.

0x00000007f Bsod Downloading Games Using Internet

I just updated and rebuilt my pc and have reinstalled win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a bsod while using the pc. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet. From the program blue screen viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769.

I can not find any solution to fix this issue, i have updated drivers, i have ran the microsoft memory checker, i have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, i even changed motherboards, got the errors on both ssd and hdd. The only things i haven't changed out is the ps and cpu, since i am using the pc to write this i am ruling out the cpu as the issue.

I have used memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and cpu, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. It seems to be software/driver issue but i can not figure it out.
