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.

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.

Win 7 64-bit Bsod When Playing Wow Game - Ram Issue

I've been getting windows blue screen of death for some time. I thought it was one of my ram because after swapping them in and out of every slot and even one at a time. One of them was the one that was causing the bsod while the other one was stable. So i replaced both with 4 new sticks and now i'm getting bsod even more often. Like every 30 mins. Before i used to only get it when i was playing a game like wow when i had 2 sticks of ram in and i could go days without crashing. With 1 stick it was constantly stable. Here's are my 2 most recent errors:

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?

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?

Shockwave Error When Playing Games Online Or Watching Movies

Okay, i am having a huge issue with my windows 7 operating system. I recently upgraded from windows vista to 7 via the disk dell sent me. I got my operating system free because i purchased after a certain date. Everything worked fine for the first week then i started experiencing error that i cannot seem to find if anyone else has had similar problems. Now i had to do a system roll back, but guess what i still have the problem.

I rolled back to when my shockwave player was working and it continued to not work. Everytime i try to play an online flash game my shockwave fails critically. Even on movies sometimes i am using a dell studio xps 16, with a mobility radeon t9550 at 2. 67 ghz processor speed. There are no problems with my graphics card for it worked for maybe 20 minutes then messed up again. I reinstalled shockwave and still problems. I don't have a virus, i use kaspersky internet security 2010, and it works fine.

Bsod 0x1e When Playing Media

I'm using win7 home premium 64-bit. About 80% - 90% of the time i try to play a media file my machine goes bsod with code 0x1e. This happens with all types video formats when played in vlc or window media player locally, and when playing streaming video online using either explorer or firefox. It's even happened a few times while surfing and downloading.

Winamp plays mp3's and shoutcast tv with no problems. The last 8 crash dumps all indicate stop code 0x1e with 0's in all 4 parameter fields, however, the source varies: hal.dll, ndis.sys, ntoskrnl, and dxgkrnl.sys. When i was using winxp and win7 rc with the same hardware i never had a problem. All my 64-bit drivers and applications are up to date. Any ideas?

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.

Bsod When More Than 2gb Of Ram Installed

Customer brought in a toshiba portege m800 laptop. Problem it is having is that on a clean install of windows 7 pro 64bit, it will bsod with 0x7e, 0x0a, or 0x1e when there is more than 2gb of memory installed. It boots perfectly fine with 2gb or less.

Motherboard, processor, hard drive, and memory have been replaced. I've tried using different brands of memory, different speeds all with the same problem. All memory that has been used has passed every test thrown at it. The bios reports the correct amount of memory installed no matter how much is installed. The computer can handle up to 8gb of memory.

I know vista had a similar problem, but i was not able to find a hotfix for windows 7 and of course the vista hotfix will not install on 7. Any ideas on solving this problem?

Upgrading Ram - Which Type Of Ram I Would Need?

Currently i have a windows vista 32 bit, and am going to go to windows 7 64 bit. I only have 2 gigs of ram right now but i want to upgrade to 4 gigs.

Current specs:
Intel core2 duo t9300 2. 5ghz
2. 00gb ram
Windows vista 32 bit

1- i was wondering how to find out which type of ram i would need. (Btw, this is a laptop)

2- is there anywhere that can give instructions for self installation (i heard it was easy to do myself), or if its even wise to do it myself.

3- would it would benefit me to install the ram before or after i did a clean install for windows 7

Ps- any reliable companies that you would suggest that make ram.

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.

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.

Playing Itunes On Media Player

What is the procedure for getting my itunes to show & play with windows media player? Some albums are visible and i have no problem playing them or sync-ing them with my cell phone that is running 6. 5. However the majority of the albums i can not figure out how to get them and all of their songs to be visible in wmp. In some cases, only 1 or 2 songs out of the album will be visible.

I have searched and can not find any distinction between the itunes albums/songs that are visible in wmp and those that are not. I have tried everything that i can think of in terms of sharing and folder/library settings, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Problem Recording & Playing Sound

I have a gateway nv53 notebook with windows 7 home prem. I installed ventrilo, and i sounded choppy to everyone. This set off several weeks of trouble shooting and tinkering with every possible combination of settings i could find, and nothing helped. I was sure there was some problem with some setting on vent, but i decided to try using the sound recorder under accessories and playing it back with wmp. Every recording i made (10 total, about 1 min long each) came through horribly choppy. I would sound normal and clear for about 5 seconds, then there would be a quick clicking sound where you couldn't hear anything i was saying, and after that i would sound extremely low. Then another clicking sound and i sound normal for a second before another clicking sound puts me back low or sometimes ridiculously loud. I tried my external mic, which works perfect on other computers, and the built-in mic on the notebook. I don't know where to go from here. I don't know if i should be trying to update some drivers or codecs or what?

Assassins Creed 1 Not Playing Full Screen

I have an amd 3. 2 quad with a 5770ati graphics card all my gaming graphics is great, and all my other games run to full screen with no boarders (stretch from graphics card is ok). Oh an windows 7, great. My problem is only with assassins 1 which seems to run with a windows boarder of some type that i don't recognize, it has in the top left corner a white rectangle with a small blue square in the middle an to the right of that the name assassins creed.

The bottom also has the task bar, the best i can do to make it full screen is right click on the top bar an hit move then just click the bottom bar an the task bar disappears but the top one remains.

An if i go to close to the top during a game with my right mouse button on the move box comes up again. I don't know if this problem is with the game or a windows setting, i'm not very good with my new computer or windows yet.

Explorer.exe Freeze Playing Logoff Sound

I want to take my machine in for service and want to be able to make sure the repair person knows what they're doing before i let them mess with it. I have had my dell xps studio 64bit for less than a month. Have installed minimal additional programs besides what it came with and when using explorer it has frozen on several occasions forcing me to shut the whole computer down and then displays this error with the only option to force the program to close. (Waiting for) explorer.exe playing logoff sound.

What exactly is wrong? And how can it be fixed? Thank you so much for your help. As you can see i'm very frustrated and concerned that i just spent a lot of money on something that is not working properly.
