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.

Bsod After Installing 8gb Ram On Win 7 64-bit

My computer has been running fine on 4gb ram. I installed 4 more gb of the exact same type of ram and the system has been unstable since, getting multiple blue screens of death, etc. I have uploaded the .dmp file here if anyone could take a look at it.

Blue Screen Error On Startup With 8gb Ram

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. If i switch the system off then back on it seems to start up just fine. I have done every kind of memory test on all sticks, hardware test and even some crying. Every test comes back perfect! All drivers are up to date along with the bios and all firmware.

Errors i get from bsod:
If i leave microsoft security essentials installed i get-

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?

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.

Shutdown Errors & Support

This seems to be a recurring theme on all the win 7 forums, the machine won't shut down properly. Select shut down, screens goes to the "shutting down" view, but the circle icon freezes after a few seconds and the machine hangs.

When i reboot, windows does not report a failure, it just boots normally and works fine, but come shut down, problems again.

This is happening everytime i use the machine, though sometimes i get the odd bsod thrown in at shut down as well, just for good measure.

I have used the internal checking within win 7 to try to find the issue, but nothing works, i don't want to have to re-install win 7 ultimate, a couple of weeks after installing it, but that is looking like the only option and that is not guaranteed to fix the issue.

I have tried to contact microsoft through their online "help & support" forum, but they say my version of win 7 ultimate is not activated (yes it is), then when i enter my product code, it says because i am not registered, i have to pay £45 for 1 hour of support.

Me pay them to have them fix a problem with their software! I thought vista was bad, this is just vista 1. 5 with bugs, should l have stuck to vista.

Anybody got any ideas on what is causing this, as lots of people are seeing this issue, yet no support answers seem to give a resolution

System specs are

Win 7 ultimate
Quad core processer
6gb of ram
2 x 512mb nvidia graphic cards working in sli mode
2 x 1tb sata hdd
28" hd monitor

Update From Vista Has Errors

I have updated to windows 7 from vista. I now have problems where the cpu turns itself off in the middle of working. I have had the cpu checked for electronic problems and was told that the installation to windows 7 did not clear the harddrive of the vista program. It appears there is bits of both programs trying to vie for usage. I was informed the only way to correct the problem is to totally reformat the harddrive (as indicated when upgrading from xp) and reinstalling.

As the instructions on the windows 7 home premium please spread the word of this major 'glitch' in the installation of windows 7 to a vista environment. I have a hard time keeping the cpu on as it has a tendency to shut down from 30 seconds from turn on to 7 minutes and getting shorter. It is a major problem.

Error messages-some postscript specific settings(interpolation, calibration, encoding) will be ignored since you are printing to a non post script printer. -Result print of 1/2 inch of 4 by 6 print, print about 25% of specified size, no print etc.

On hp932 and hp deskjet 9800.

Hp9800 and hp932 printers, hp scanjet 4470 all worked perfectly well on old windows me- i know they're old, but are there no fixes for these issues for a computer user without great technical knowledge. Or is the cure the dumpster for all my old peripherals?

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.

Hp Photosmart C4280 Device Failed With Errors

Local printing to the hp photosmart c4280 all-in-one device fails with errors in the error log.network printing from the macbook pro to the same printer shared from the windows 7 machine works fine.

The errors are:

The print spooler failed to load a plug-in module c:windowssystem32spooldriversx643unidrvui.dll, error code 0xc1. See the event user data for context information.

The document microsoft word - references.doc, owned by michael, failed to print on printer hp photosmart c4200 series. Try to print the document again, or restart the print spooler.

Data type: nt emf 1. 008. Size of the spool file in bytes: 65536. Number of bytes printed: 0. Total number of pages in the document: 1. Number of pages printed: 0. Client computer: \rivendell. Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 2147500037. Unspecified error

Restarting the print spooler does not fix the issue. Installing the latest software and patches also does nothing. Setting permissions to full control for everyone on the unidrvui.dll also has no effect. Unchecking "enable bidirectional support" on the ports tab of the printer properties doesn't work either. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Blue Screen - Bccode Errors Start With 3b, 24, 11, 1

I have a computer that's been running vista completely fine for two years. I bought a new sata hard drive and installed windows 7 on it, removing the hard drive that had vista on it. With 7, i'm getting bluescreen errors two or three times a day, each one with a different bccode and error report. Windows and my own knowledge led me to believe it was a ram issue, so i did some troubleshooting (i've had ram go bad before) with swapping out sticks and running memory tests, with no difference detected. I was getting bluescreens regardless of which memory stick i used.

I've since put back in the drive with vista and taken out the drive with 7 and all of my hardware works fine. I have no idea what's causing 7 to crash constantly on this system. Does the cmos need to be cleared? Is there some memory somewhere that's corrupting everything? Not to mention when i install 7 it gets me all the updated drivers. I've troubleshot a computer before, but i'm totally lost with this one. Some bccode errors start with: 3b, 24, 11, and 1. Those are the ones i can remember right now.

Facebook Email Login Problem / Errors

I have had a problem logging in to facebook and my e-mail, i found a way to get into my mail. Once i was able to do that i was able to contact them. They sent a request for a screenshot of the login page and what it said and i did that, however it will not go through with the e-mail address they used when they sent the request. I was able to attach their e-mail to my to my screenshot.

I did that because my screenshot would not attach to their e-mail. So i set up my final e-mail to them and it will not go through. The e-mail page that came up is microsoft, i filled everything out and hit send and it came back saying something about my server not being microsoft and it didn't go through! If i can use yahoo to send e-mail and my service provider is not yahoo why does it go through it and not microsoft?

Blue Screen Errors 0x00000019, 0x0000003b

Dell 720 Printer Printing Errors

Windows and dell say that windows 7 (32bit)is not compatible with 720 printer but, on another forum, people say that they have developed a simple workaround. Many people have used this and reply it works great. The procedure is:- 1. Download driver r149368 - i have done this. 2. Open up r149368, however when i go to c:program files/dell720/drivers/ and open it i find nothing resembling r1493678 but many files with strange endings (forgotten word that should be here) such as dlbcaglk. Ou_ , dlbccdrv. Cat, dlbcjswx. Ex_and so on and nothing that calls itself setup.exe that one is supposed (step 3. ) To set to defaults.

Trouble shooting the printer shows nothing wrong, no compatibility problems etc. , But eventually i get to error 0x00000006 which i can find no reference to. If i try to print i get the message "the handle is invalid" with no error number. If i try to sign in to the main home page for windows help there is a drop down list for "state/region" - nothing for canada or ontario.
