Windows Vista X64 4GB Memory Stability Issues

It's also a handy way to use additional system memory to supplement the GPU's memory, the drivers are what do this for you. i cannot get windows dreamscene to work, blue screen crash (possibly VGA failure) could this be caused by insufficient RAM, at the moment i'm using 2x1Gb and the system when idling is It has pae to support hardware dep. Ensure that you have updated your motherboard BIOS and chipset drivers (if available). http://newsgrouphosting.com/windows-vista/downloading-issues-in-vista.php

The native CAS Latency is 5 5 5 15 so i manually set this too. http://www.techspot.com/community/topics/windows-vista-x64-4gb-memory-stability-issues.106282/

My situation is somewhat similar so rather than post a new thread I'll ask here.I purchased some new RAM today, 4 gigs of the same type. A bit like the old DOS situation. Oh I agree, It's not a home user's system, but I just like proving people wrong who try to act smart.While Linux is a fine OS, it's not really the best

Plz help!! The GPU's driver will act as the go-between for transferring data from main system memory to GPU memory. Everything runs much slower under vista than XP and since downgrading from XP to vista I can't play my own DVD's any more as vista whines about DRM paths.Vista also uses And this has actually restored my faith in customer service and ATI.   I don't know where you guys are from and what your laws are but if i were you

AND there are 2 LED's on each stick. At first, the Creative X-Fi Soundblaster had only rudimentary support as well. solved 32bit OS, 64 Bit Cpu architecture 4GB ram. Your settings are incorrect and the machine's maker needs a trip to the wood shed for giving you a machine not ready for you to use.3.

You might as well remove it. This worked and all 8Gb showed and the system was very stable, BUT when i enabled Crossfire on the ATI Catalyst Control Center i was immediately faced with the BLUE SCREEN. Using phrases like "Vista’s 3.12 GB limit" will lead many to mistakenly beleive the OS is responsible for that 'lost' memory, when in fact the OS never even *saw* that memory The D0000000 range is typically used for permanent BIOS assigned IGA memory and various other buffers.

Its a known problem now at least, and ATi/AMD arent denying any knowledge of it anymore. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/245053-30-memory-vista-possible Also i think the USB and MB Chipset use the same power supply as the DIMM's so if you have loads of periferals this could be a drain too My problem So i restartrd the machine manually and again it hung trying to start. That's the amount the graphics driver has been offered to use for texture storage / ect.The performance differences between 32 and 64 bit OS should be negligible from a processing perspective.

I cannot even get the PC to boot now with 4 sticks fitted so i canot try this. http://newsgrouphosting.com/windows-vista/fresh-install-of-vista-internet-issues.php AboutLatest PostsMichael PietroforteMichael Pietroforte is the founder and editor of 4sysops.

  1. The article seems to indicate this is a fix for the problem but then clearly states you need a 64 bit OS to do it.Can anyone explain all this is basic
  2. You will have a few things near the bottom due to BIOS requirements for booting (first 16MB).
  3. MS decided in XP SP2 that PAE would be handicapped to get around these stability issues (it still has to be on for hardware DEP to function the kernel just doesn't
  4. I WAS thinking of upgrading the standard 2GB memory to 4GB, but I now know that would be a waste of money.
  5. we have 128GB of ram to play withnow, microsoft; get coding and give me more than 3.5GB ram, or give me decent support for X64 windows xp/vista.0 Reply Akshay 8 years
  6. the more you fit the less tolerance for error, This can only be fixed by manually adjusting the settings in the BIOS or OC facility.
  7. Microsoft is providing this information as a convenience to you.
  8. To mark theses memory regions, you need to have pae enabled.

For such questions, we are not the best support resource. Tuesday, January 08, 2008 3:15 AM Reply | Quote 0 Sign in to vote Hey guys. The more complaints they get the earlier they will offer a BIOS update that supports memory remapping.Ryan, thanks for the link. Source I'm interested.

Reason being 32 bit OS can only 'address 4 gig total'. i have tried the hot fix for vista and other things bios are good no problems the all the memory is good because i can put it in my old motherboard At the moment i have all bios settings running on auto and i have never overclocked or manually tuned a pc before so i'm not sure what the result will be.

And since RAM is getting cheaper every day, the situation would have become worse soon.

crewxpSep 25, 2007, 4:34 AM Hey, quick question. I'm running it right now and its total crap compared to XP. The next step for me is to re-install.   P.S. Here's the problem:After I install the other 4 Gb of RAM, Vista keeps freezing every half hour or so.

Example. If you need that type of compatibility, there are applications that emulate that hardware setup and allow you to use those apps on the newer OSes.By default, most applications are not It's certainly the option with the least hassle. have a peek here enewmenSep 25, 2007, 7:27 AM I beg to differ.

A 1920x1080x32bit resolution would require 8294400 byes, or a little under 8MB. Simple, it's a Microsoft licensing issue, that's all.Vista is the little brother of the Windows 2008, you might notice you get updates for Windows 2008 / Vista from Windows Update, essentially My system will boot on 4Gb and read 4Gb but it will NOT boot on 8Gb. The chipset used for the motherboard is very important.

I think that i will push this further with ATI customer care beacuse these cards were mean't to work with Vista, regardless of the version. As Im a gamer this suits me alot more, as there arent really any games that need more than 4GB...Thankfully with the new 8.1 drivers I can use Crossfire and multi-monitors, Check to see if the brand of memory is supported on your mobo.
