Almost got my old scanner working w/Win7 64bit

Question: Almost got my old scanner working w/Win7 64bit

SO close! Help me get this ball across the goal line!

I have a old "Microtek ScanMaker E3" scsi flatbed scanner that originally came with an ISA scsi interface (to give you some idea of how old it is). I connected it to my PC using a equally ancient Tekram 390F pci SCSI card (c.1995) that I've been using with 32bit WinXP Pro for years.

The scanner has an 8-1/2" x 14" scanning bed, 9600dpi and 48bit color reproduction. It works great and I see no reason to spend a few hundred dollars to replace it just for Win7 compatibility, so I'm trying to get it to work with the 64bit version of Windows 7.

To complicate things, the company that made my SCSI card (Tekram) went out of business years ago, so the 32bit XP driver was the last they made. But after MUCH Googling, I found a 64bit Win7 compatible driver for another card using the same chipset, and low & behold, Windows 7 recognized it! It then "detected" my scanner for the first time, but didn't have a driver.

Again, after much searching, I found a Vista 64bit version of Microtek's "ScanWizard" scanner software with 64bit driver, and now 64bit Windows 7 detects my scanner! Yeah!

But when I try to access the scanner, I get an error telling me I "must install Color Matching System first" for the scanner to work. I don't remember any such software being needed to use the scanner with XP, and there is no such program in the ScanWizard software I just installed (searching online suggests I will also need to run an "ICC Color Profiler").

Anyone have any ideas? So close yet so far! (I love doing things I was told were "impossible".) Help!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Almost got my old scanner working w/Win7 64bit

That Microtek ScanMaker E3 scsi flatbed scanner ... didn't even work well with Windows XP... and the cost in time and components to attempt to make it work are much higher than a decent Canon or Epson scanner which can be had fof $40... Less if used...

On what system are you runny SCSI ?

My mom gave me her old printer, since she got a new one, and I want to see if I can use it on my computer that I recently installed Windows 7 64bit on. It's a HP Photosmart 7350. I looked on the HP site for drivers but it seems there aren't any to download seeing as Win7 has a printer driver download thing built in. So I looked for a driver specifically made for Photosmart 7350 but there aren't any. When I looked for it on the web, apparently there is an alternate I can use (Deskjet 5550), which I installed from the "Add a printer" menu in the Devices and Printers window. It detected my printer but it doesn't print. When I try printing something I get errors. So I came here to see what I could do to fix this. I'm not sure what the problem is. Could I be using the incorrect drivers? Or is it something else?

Recently I learned of the free upgrade to windows 10. I was supposed to click on an icon in the task bar that did not appear. I was instructed to check to see if my Window updates were up to date. I went to windows update and it did not function. I followed the update steps listed in the post and had the following results;
Ran SURT, it successfully completed
ran sfc/scannow as Admin, got the following error: 'Windows Resource protection could not perform the requested operation.
Tried windows update, got error 80070246
CBS Folder (zipped) is 36 MB and will not upload. Is there something in the folder that is needed specifically? There are some big .cab files in there. I've zipped and attached the CBS.log file

I don't know when update stopped working as I haven't checked it in sometime. Perhaps two months. The update history shows updates to MSIE and not much else.
I have used CCleaner to clean my registry regularly but never saw any bad effects.

Hello. Hopefully someone here could shed some light on this problem that have been messing with my mind since yesterday when I bought this printer. I have e-mailed Lexmark support but honestly don't expect that much from it.

So. I have this S505 all in one device. I connect it with USB, NOT Wifi. Note that it works fine when connected with USB in my Laptop, which uses Vista 32bit.

The software and driver installation seems to go as it should, and windows says the printer is ready to use. When I try to print something (Tried Paint, Wordpad, Mozilla, Notepad...) the document shows up in the printing monitoring window, but nothing happens, it just gets stuck there. If I try to cancel it, it changes status to cancelling, but doesn't go away. I get the error "Communication not available, the printer cannot communicate with the computer". This also happens when I try to update the firmware. Sometimes the firmware installer doesn't even find the printer although it shows up as ready to use in device manager. Here's the weird thing though: I have actually managed to print a few documents at what seems to be random occasions. Then it just stops working again. The printer itself works fine aswell, when copying or printing the test page.

Here's what I've tried so far:
- Installing software and drivers from the CD that came with the printer
- Installing software and drivers downloaded from Lexmark support
- Not installing anything (all previous ... Read more

After lot of hours, I have finally found a workaround to my issue... The SL500 doesn't have a Lenovo Windows 7 image (see here), so I have used my own licence of Windows 7, which is supported on this machine (see here). The issueSo, after I used ThinkVantage System Update (TVSU), which I use and recommend as best practice for many years now, we found we could no longer connect to our Virgin Mobile Broadband (an Australian WWAN provider)with my internal Wireless WAN (WWAN) card, Ericson E3507g .  When I used the USB WWAN Modem that came from my ISP, it worked fine, so I knew the issue wasn't with my provider. The hard work I tried rolling back drivers and software, no change. I kept getting either errors about not being able to authenticate the WWAN connection or that the provider couldn't be found. After pulling my hair out, I made an complete backup to my server using Rescue & Recovery, and installed a vanilla copy of Windows 7 Professional 64bit, wiping the HDD clean & disabling Windows Update in the process. I then installed only the requirements for the latest version of ThinkVantage Access Connections (TVAC), see here, but still I had the same issue. Again, went back to a clean vanilla copy of Windows 7, and installed everything as before, except the older WWAN drivers from here, but still no success.  Now it appears the newer version of TVAC can't work with the older version of the WWAN drivers.&nb...

I've been trying to solve this for some months now.I bought my lenovo G460 with nvidia M310 (with hdmi) this year and have not been able to get the hdmi port to work. I have two lcd displays one in our lab and another one at home (LG 2361V-PF) which have hdmi connections in the back.In the beginning I was able to get my notebook to work on the display in our office. However, now both displays (work+home) are not working. I have tried to reinstall latest nvidia drivers as of 2010-11-02 (ver. 8.16.11.8990) from lenovo, completely restore Operating system and tried different hdmi cables. I have even tried to use original drivers and also downgrade that to a lower version all with no luck. I have even taken my LG LCD display to the LG After Service Warranty office and have found no issues wrong with the Monitor itself. I am sure I have taken all the trouble-shooting methods into consideration so a simple question is...Is the hdmi port defective?I will take my laptop into the Lenovo After Care service center this week, but before then is there anyone who has had this issue and solved it?  -->or is it just a hardware problem easily fixed with warranty replacement parts. Thank you

- try to flash bios update if you didn't
- connect the cable first, then start-up your computer and lcd.make sure cable works and you can also try "windows + p" ( or fn + f3 )
make sure also function keys working.

Hello,

I am owner of a Tecra S10 and using Vista 64bit as operating system.
Unfortunately Toshiba is not really supporting this OS version, because the offered drivers have to be collected over different products which are using same hardware.

Does anyone knows wether Toshiba will start sharing drivers for Vista 64bit soon and what's about Win7?

I think Vista 64bit drivers will run under Win7 as well, but **** when will they officially release drivers for Vista 64bit or Win7?

Any info would be interesting.

Thanks in advance.

> I think Vista 64bit drivers will run under Win7 as well, but **** when will they officially release drivers for Vista 64bit or Win7?
Why you don?t contact the Toshiba and ask the guys for this info?
Then you could share this info with us? I mean this is a user to user forum and I doubt there are some official guys from Toshiba?

But I?ve got a own theory; I think the Win 7 drivers will be released after the official Win 7 release. At this time you can get only the Beta version Win 7.

Regarding the Vista 64bit OS drives;
I checked the Toshiba European driver page and the 64bit Vista drivers are available so where is the problem?

Answer:Macrium Reflect: Restore Win7 32bit to Win7 64bit?

NO -- a clean install is required to move from one to the other. IF you restore an MR backup over an install, it replaces the entire contents of the partition. So basically, you would be going back to the version that you saved to backup.

Hello

I have purchased and downloaded both 32 bit and 64 bit Windows7 Professional (no CDs or media here only download version)

I sucessfully upgraded from Vista 32 to Win7 32

Then I upgraded my hard disk (140Gb 500GB) and RAM (3GB to to 4GB)

Now I would like to go from Win7 32bit to 64bit

When I try and run the Win7-P-retail-en-us.x64.exe file it upacks the box then stops with this error:"We are unable to create or save files in the folder in which this application was downloaded. Please check the folder properties to make sure that you have security permission on the folder to write flies and that that folder is not read only"
I am the System Admin and I have full rights, and have moved the exe and the setup box files to My Documentsand I have modified the directory properties/attributes but I still get the same error over and over.

I searched the posts and some people stated one needs a clean install others say you can upgrade from any version so I am trying the upgrade here especially since the upgrade from Vista 32 to Win7 32 was smooth and did require all the extra work of a reinstall.

Can someone help me here?

Thanks

Answer:Win7 (32bit) to Win7 (64bit) upgrade install error

I believe to go from 32-bit to 64-bit, you will have to boot off the DVD. The installer is a 64 bit application that won't run under 32-bit. Find instructions to create a DVD if you don't already have it.

Good luck!

Hi folks.

I have searched through the various threads that deal with this topic but have not seen anything that deals with this specifically.

I have a custom built computer I put together last year. I installed Win7 32bit at the time because I didn't want to bite the bullet and reinstall everything. That time has now arrived.

My computer has:

i7 Core 960 2.67GHz
8GB Ram
1TB HDD (Win7 32bit installed)
600GB HDD

I purchased an OEM DVD of Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and an Intel 180GB SSD drive.

I want to install the SSD drive on the computer and install Win7 64bit OS as a DUAL BOOT. This way I will be able to choose to migrate my applications at my own pace. As I install a 64bit version of my Photoshop CS6 for example, I will delete it in the 32bit OS once I have all my settings, brushes etc. moved over.

Should I ?

1. Install the SSD and get it recognized by the BIOS and the 32bit OS.
2. Boot from the DVD of the 64bit OS and choose the SSD as the location of the installation.
3. Reboot the computer after installation complete

and at that point I should get the dual boot screen?

The above is how I understand the process based on some tutorials I've seen for dual booting XP and Vista. Does this work for Win7 32 and Win7 64?

Answer:Dual Boot Win7 32bit and Win7 64bit on a second SSD drive

Easy - install the SSD and disconnect all the HDDs. Then install Win7 on the SSD and make the SSD second in the boot sequence (first should be the CD/DVD reader). Then reconnect the HDDs.

When you want to boot from your 32bit system, temporarily change the boot sequence (usually via F12 at power-on).

I had already purchased a retail version for Win7 Ultimate before (the full version not the upgrade) and would like to use this for the upgrade.

I looked around the forums for some advice and found some very useful stuff but I would appreciate if someone could help with the following. My apologies if the answers were posted already. Must have missed them.

1. I read about the Windows Anytime Upgrade feature. Will AU work with the full Win7 Ultimate retail key or does it specifically work with an upgrade key?

2. If I use the AU and it is successful, will the new Win7 Ultimate key be converted to an OEM version as well? The full-version retail key I have gives me the right to install this to 3 computers. I do not want to lose this right since I may use it for different computers in the future.

3. Is it better to go for AU or a clean install of Win7?

Since I just purchased the laptop, I have no personal data or programs installed so I do not have to worry about losing data. However Toshiba has certain software installed with the laptop. My understanding of a clean install is that everything will be wiped clean and then necessary software e.g. drivers, etc... need to be installed again. On the other hand, once I upgrade to Ultimate perhaps some of this software will becom... Read more

Hi,
I'm presently running Win7 Pro 32bit on an Intel Core2Duo 2.4Ghz 775 socket.

I've just purchased a i5 760 processor, an Intel H55 chipset Mobo, and 8GB of ram.

My copy of Win7 Pro 32bit was acquired through the college I was attending.
I have the installation disk and the license number.

When I reinstall Win7 Pro on my new set up, what do I need to do to make it a 64bit install?

I plan to use to the same installation disk and license number.

thanks
Mitch

OEM SSD Win7 64 bit on C: I installed a new SSD with Win7 64bit to use as a test drive, but I can't boot to it. I can see the new SSD drive when I am in C:. It is labeled as E: I never gave it a drive letter. Does Win7 issue drive letter sutomatically? When I go into the BIOS at boot up I can't see it. I can boot to it if I remove the power to the C: so it can only boot to the new SSD.

I am working on a Dell Studio 1745 running Win7 64 Home Premium. I need to run a piece of hardware (Tascam US122) that is incompatiable with the 64bit OS. My plan is to partition the drive and install Win 7 32bit on the new partition so I can run the mentioned hardware. I've done this on another machine (Dual Boot XP and Win 7) and ran into a problems with the bootloader. I learned to install older OS FIRST because of that. I'm wondering if installing Win7 32bit on a current Win7 64bit machine will cause a similar problem with bootloaders? I'd rather not have to mess with the bootloaders, but I really need to run this hardware. And, since this is a Dell, with touchscreen, and most IMPORTANTLY, a friend's computer I want to be 100% sure I'm not going to cause issues I can't fix.

So, again, will installing Win7 32bit on a new partition of a Win7 64bit machine cause problems with the bootloader, or any other foreseeable problems?

Thanks a bunch!

I am trying to upgrade from Win7 32bit to Win7 64bit. A tech? instalked a new HDD for me and put Win7 64bit on it. I have another drive that has Win7 32bit on it that I would like to put Win7 64bit on. I have the new 64bit cd and can read directions, I just have no directions to tell me how to do it. The HDD I want to install on has been formatted Win7 32bit, however there is nothing on it of value now so I am ready to do this thing. I have read the directions on how to do a clean install but have no way to know if this would be classed as a clean install. I may not be the brightest bulb on the tree but I am very careful. It's been a few years since I've had the hood up on a computer but I do know my way around inside, even know what some of those things are in there. If there is some one out there that can set me on the right road to do this thing I will certainly appreciate it. Thanks DonS

Answer:upgrade from win7 32bit to Win7 64bit

Hello Don, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Is this going to be installed in another computer, or are you having both hard drives in your current computer to dual boot?

Do you have separate product key number for the second installation?

If it's going to be installed on a separate computer and you have a second key to activate with, then yeah you could do a clean install with it like in the tutorial below.

Answer:Win7 Pro 64bit to Win7 32bit

You cannot downgrade from 64-bit OS to 32-bit. You have to back up data and clean-install 32-bit OS. Your programs have to be re-installed. Even standalone programs, if designed for 64-bit, have to be 32-bit.CoolGuy

Hello!

I am currently using Windows 7 Home Basic 32bit. I acquired Windows 7 Professional 64bit through MSDNAA and was wondering about how the OS change will go.

What I'm worried about are my files. I currently have about 200gb worth of data on my drive and I have no extra harddrives to make backups.

Because I'm going from 32bit to 64bit, I read that a clean install is required for this type of change. My question is, will my files be placed in a "windows.old" folder? Or will I be required to buy an external drive and transfer them all in order to keep them?

Are there any other things that I must keep in mind?

Thank you in advance for any help and responses!

Answer:Win7 32bit to Win7 64bit

If you're doing a clean install then you will lose all data. I would highly reccomend an external HD to back up your files

Hello all,

I upgraded my system to Windows 7 32bit (from Vista) back when there was the student discount. And am regretting it now since i work in Photoshop all the time and need more RAM to suppose the work i do. So i'm looking to upgrade my system to the 64bit equivalent of what i already have (Home Premium).
I understand you can't use the Windows Anytime Upgrade for a 32bit to 64 bit upgrade. I also understand you need to do a clean install, which is no problem.

So what my question is, is what product should i buy exactly? Can i get away with an upgrade only? Or do i have to buy the full product?
I still have my Vista CD, so i could re-install the 64bit version of that, then buy the Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit upgrade?
Or is there a simpler way?

Cheers.

Answer:Win7 HP 32bit - Win7 HP 64bit

Welcome!

You can buy the Upgrade key because you have a previous OS already (Windows 7 32-bit).

You don't need to do anything with Vista, however. You can do a clean install with the upgrade copy. Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

I've had the 636 for a number of years now and it has always worked flawlessly for me. I recently got a new computer that has Win 7 64bit as the OS along with the Adaptec 29320LPE SCSI card to connect the scanner to. I can't seem to find a driver or application that will allow me to use the 636 on this new computer. When the computer boots, it does see the SCSI card and the scanner. I couldn't find anything on the Epson site that gave me the impression this was still supported.Hoping someone will have some ideas on what I can do. Thx, Bob

Since they haven't written Win7 drivers...and probably will not your best bet would be to try the Vista drivers and see...they have to be the 64bit drivers though...Worst case scenario you'll be shopping for a new printer...PS...do you have a Shelby ? ?

I currently have 4GB RAM on my Lenovo Thinkpad T500. I've been using Win7 32bit but decided to dual boot with Win7 64bit, mainly to see if I see a diference having on OS that uses all 4GB.

I'm not a big user of CAD or other memory hungry apps. I've read that 64bit is more secure. Is this true? I appreciate any advice you may have.

Usual causes: Disk corruption, insufficient physical memory, Device driver, Indexing, Resident antivirus, backup, defrag programs, Disk/Drive failing/failure

I would deal with these first
Memory-- download memtestx86 and run it for at least 5 passes.

System files- run a system file check
(type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow)
Let us know these results.

If that doesnt fix it we will get more aggressive

The system gives me a sound tone when I remove the cable and plug it back in, but no message box comes up. I have plenty of alternatives for scanner drivers, etc. but you can't install a USB scanner if the system can't see it. Again, it worked with the BETA!?

So...
I Plugged My Normal setup (Logitech X-540 + Mic plugged in keyboard, and Headset plugged into the Logitech Control)

So, at first, people couldn't hear me on Ventrilo and stuff, so i had to play with all setting available on Win7 (Messy stuff).
And finally, put my mic on Boost +20 db.. So the quality isn't really there, and when i play css, it sounds pretty horrible.
And now new problem, I'm playing Heroes Of Newerth, and as soon as I get on the game, people on Vent can't hear me anymore, if I want to talk, i have to alt+tab out of the game, say what I have to say, then comeback on the game (which sucks).

I tried running both programs on administrator mode (which didn't worked)
I tried to play on windowed mode (which didn't worked either)

I Have Win7 64 bit
Onboard sound card
Razer Lycosa (which I plug my mic in)
Razer Deathadder (PTT button is set on Mouse4)
My headset sound is plugged in the Logitech X-540 Control thingie
And I have a Steelseries 5H V2

What is wrong with Win7 ?
It doesn't recognize my headset, it says not-plugged

Is the problem with the quality of the headset? Does it work on another computer? What if you connect it directly to the computer and not through the Logitech remote?

With game programs Steam, Origin, i absolutely don't want to download them and with the games. Just copy BF3 etc folders? I've had this problem before (nothing to do with windows), where it would want to download all of the games, but i already have them installed etc.

Win7 activation keys aren't specific to 32-bit or 64-bit.  They are only specific to the version of Win7 (e.g. pro, home, ultimate, etc).  However there is no way to easily upgrade from win7 32-bit to win7 64-bit.  You have to back up your files, format your HDD and install 64-bit OS from scratch, re-install your programs, and then restore your files.  I don't think Lenovo will provide you the media for an OS that didn't originally ship on your computer.  If you were to find an retail OS install DVD on your own, I don't think the OEM key on the sticker on the bottom of your computer will work.  It definitely won't activate online - possibly you could activate it over the phone but I don't know for sure (you would need to ask Microsoft about that). For what reason do you want 64-bit OS?  Do you have 4 GB of RAM in your system?

Went to do an offline defrag of system files on reboot and it hung just before the login screen. After forcing a shutdown and booting backup Win7 gave me the option to do a restore (which may remove applications in the process...message stated) or to repair. I went with the repair as I the message on the restore option seemed flaky. The repair failed. I submitted the report to MS as that was an option.

After rebooting again there was an attempt this time to do the offline defrag but the message went by to fast to read the failure. Looked like it couldn't gain access to the hard disk.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:Perfectdisk 10 and Win7 Pro 64bit

You do not have to do a Offline Defrag anymore with Win 7 X64. It defrags it every time you do a normal defrag. It sure does make life a little easier.

Question: Win7 64bit games

Hi guys, I am thinking about re-installing Win7 with 64x to take advantage of a few things such as stability and access to my extra ram beyond 4 gig.My question is..as I understand it most games are 64bit compatible such as farcry 2 , crysis 2 etc.. but would I need to re-install those games for them to work as 64bit, as apose to running emulated in 32bit mode if I don't reinstall them?As I understand it these games don't have seperate 64x installers so I was wondering if they will just function as 64bit games....?Thanks for your input.

Answer:Win7 64bit games

There is no upgrade path from 32 bit to 64 bit Windows 7 so you would need to do a clean install of the OS. That means backing up and restoring your data and reinstalling all applications.

This maybe a stupid question, but since I have only ever had 32 bit operating systems I don't know - right now I have Windows7 32 bit and have some older stuff like a digital storage oscilliscope and some other things working just fine with it - would that stuff work on a 64 bit Win7 system - would they install ok?

Hi and welcome

Nope they wouldnt. In win 7 32bit ist can handle some older (16 bit apps) but in win 7 64bit it can onky handle some older (32bit apps) There is another option if your machine is able to. In win 7 there is "XP mode", basically a virtaul XP machine. Comes in very usefull if you use older apps. You can find out if your machine can do both 64bit and virtual xp mode by running a third party app called secura. you can find it for free at GRC.com/secura.

Let us know if you need help with any of this

Good luck Mate

Question: SURT WIN7 64bit

The pc is definitely backleveled since I had to restore. It has all updates up to 7/12. While I have had any problems with updates (so far) I thought that it might be wise to install the SURT. My only concern is whether that would create problems with updates since I am so far behind.

thanks

(I could not find an answer for this question which may well be a dumb question.)

It only corrects any problems it finds - it doesn't install anything new.

Unless you're seeing problems with updating or the like, then there should be no need to run the tool.

Hello. I've been constantly having this BSOD for 3 months. Never had such persistent problem before so i'm looking for some input.I started having problems when i attached a WD passport hdd to my pc - it would constantly crash, i couldn't overclock my cpu and i couldn't put more than 4gb of ram. Then i found out there's an option i had to disable in bios for it to work right and the problems seemingly stopped. I could overclock my cpu and put more ram but shorty after problems started occuring again, i rolled back everything i did even reinstalled my windows but 7f still happens. I'm currently removed the hdd and waiting to see if it happens again. The problem is i have no idea what could be causing it if the hdd is not the problem, and if it is i have no option of not using it - i have a lot of files on it.I've downloaded a program called blue screen view and here's what it shows:==================================================Dump File         : 041912-17487-01.dmpCrash Time        : 19.4.2012 г. 02:06:19 ч.Bug Check String  : UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAPBug Check Code    : 0x0000007fParameter 1       : 00000000`00000008Parameter 2       : 00000000`80050031Parameter 3       : 00000000`000406f8Parameter 4       : fffff800`0308fec8Caused By Driver  : ntoskrnl.exeCaused By Address :...

You have RAM issues...on top of OC'ing making things harder to diagnose...DLoad and run MemTest from a bootable CD...let it run minimum 1 hour...Any errors at all you have a bad/mismatched stick of RAM.I'd also suggest undoing any clocking until we find out what the issue is.

Hello
I have had a recurring BSOD problem since I built this machine.
It is very odd as it will occur 1 or 2 times every 3-6 days then it will be fine!
Normally it is Memory Management but it sometimes other things like Bad Pool Header
Seems that every pc I build has a little "quirk" like this and im a bit fed up with it

Anyhow, I have uploaded the last 2 dmp files that I cant read.
Could someone please have a look and tell me what they think could be my problem?
I have all my drivers up to date as far as I know.
My system is:
I7 950
Gigabyte ga58-ud5 Rev 2
6gb of OCZ platinum ram (triple channel)

OCZ ssd

Answer:BSOD win7 64bit - can someone tell me why?

1. Do you have any overclocking of your processor or RAM?
2. How old is the system?

I want to lean towards faulting memory modules.

I suggest running Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool. Download it, burn it to a CD, boot from it, and run it overnight AT LEAST. Each pass will take a couple hours. Report back if you have any errors reported.

If that doesn't work, try running the machine with only 1 stick at a time for a few days each and see if you have issues. If they work fine separately, try using two sticks. Also try different slots, if your board allows it.

Also: You say you had this problem since you built the machine. Did it start from day 1?

Sandboxie - very useful for trying out unknown programsFirefox - best browser out there...also consider the NoScript addonPrivatefirewall 7 - never heard of itAvast! - best free AV out there (in my opinion)Threatfire - you shouldn't be running two active protection anti-viruses at once.

Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding Th... Read more

Relax the timing to JEDEC defaults, which should be 5-5-5-18 IIRC. Try standard 1.8V or even 1.85V and see if that helps.

I am building a new system using a Phenom II X3 720BE. I plan to install Windows 7RC 64 bit and 8GB of DDR3 1333 RAM (4x2GB). After ordering the parts I discovered the following information on the OCZ support forums (http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=50927):

"4 memory modules when run with a Phenom II CPU are only supported at 800 MHz. Size does not matter. 4x512, 4x1GB, or 4x2GB ram modules will be run at a max speed of 800 MHz."

We don't have much to go on. Right off the top of my head, I suggest that you check your graphics card and sound card drivers. You may have to experiment with the drivers to get the right ones.

Please fill out your system information. Go to your User CP at the top of the page, look in the left column and click on Edit system specs. Filling in your specs will help us help you.

Hi All
I have purchased 8gb of ram upgrade to help speed up my home video work. I am currently running Win7 Home Premium in 32bit mode. I have read that 64bit handles larger ram over 4gb better.

It appears from what I have read that if I install 64bit from my existing disk it will do a clean start and wipe out all the existing installation. I want to avoid doing that a back up never seems to catch everthing and it can be a real pain setting it all up again.

SO if I purchase Win Ultimate Upgrade can I install it using the 64bit option without wiping out all my files?

OR is there any other way of doing it?

Thanks for any advise offered.

The PC was overclocked, but I put it back to stock and still have the same issue. I've updated all the drivers and bios. Memtest did 9 passes w/o errors. Doesn't seem to be a cooling issue, PC idles at about 30 degrees and peaks about 60.

I really don't know what else to check at this point and hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. thanks for the help.

Answer:BSOD on WIN7 64BIT

Nice work! You've done a lot of our work for us!

I'm not familiar with Ceton tuner cards - but have had issues with Hauppage cards in the past. Are you certain that the card is Win7 compatible and that you have installed Win7 drivers for it?

The perfmon report shows that the Hauppage WinTV device is disabled. If you're not using it, please enable it and then uninstall all drivers/software for it. Then physically remove the device from the system (you can reinstall it after we're done troubleshooting if you want to).

The perfmon report shows that Windows Update is disabled. Please enable it and ensure that you have all Windows Updates (to include Service Pack 1). I'll get more info on this when I look at the systeminfo report.

The system info report shows only 34 Windows Updates and no Service Pack 1 installation. So please do the following in this order:
- enable automatic Windows Updates
- visit the PC Manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers on your system.
- visit Windows Update and get all available updates
- visit WIndows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under "Important Updates")
- visit Windows Update and get any remaining updates.

MSINFO32 shows 6 BSOD events with no particular pattern (including at STOP 0x124 error). This is usually indicative of a hardware problem, but can also point to compatibility issues, malware problems, or low-level hardware driver problems (I wonder about the Hauppage device because of this).

Question: Win7-64bit BSODs

Hi,

My BSODs continue. Starting to wonder if it could be a motherboard issue. Have been running many memory tests and none reports issues with the memory.

All components are less than 5 months old. I have re-installed Windows from scratch several times and I dont have a antivirus software installed. I have replaced the OS disk with a completely new one, since I thought at some point it was related to the hard drive.

Please, any help would be really appreciated!

Regards
Wilhelm

Hey guys, I need to migrate Win7 64bit from one SSD to another SSD, but the original drive has MBR and I want GPT on the destination drive.
Anybody knows a free or with trial period utility that can do this?
I don't care about data on destination drive (its new). I have acronis true image HD 2015 license from crucial, but its very limited in functionality (several functions are locked, e.g. "Acronis universal restore" not available).
Thank you.

Answer:need to migrate Win7 64bit from one SSD to another SSD

You haven't mentioned if you have a Laptop or Desktop. To use GPT your BIOS MUST be UEFI.
I never done it before, so I don't guarantee it will work. Try this:
Detach all other HDD and SSD and leave only the new SSD.
On BIOS set:
- SATA=AHCI (Or RAID if you have a RAID array)
- OS=Other
- Storage Boot and PCI device to UEFI only
- XHCI Hand off to disabled
- Fast boot to disable

- Boot your Win 7 installation on UEFI mode (important), go to install, custom, advanced, delete all partitions, create a new one (Win will create 3 partitions) and ABORT (don't proceed). You have created a GPT disk with 3 partitions. One UEFI -100M FAT32, one MSR - 120M raw and one large NTFS partition.
Now you have to copy your C: drive to the new disk on the large partition.
To do so you can do an image of C: drive and restore it to the new drive.
Once restored, detach all other HDD and SSD and leave only the new SSD.
Boot your Win 7 installation on UEFI mode (important), and launch start up repair.

Alright. Bear with me as I have a couple questions for you and a few things you can try.

Have you installed any new hardware recently? If so what was it?

What are you doing at the time this occurs?


A couple things I would consider doing first is running Chkdsk /R in a command prompt, Running MemTest86+ for 5-10 passses and if you have any negative results from either, let me know.

Also, update your graphics card, lan, wireless, and audio drivers to their latest stable versions and report back if that has had any success or failures as well.

Thanks!

Hi,Just purchased a T520 with Win7 64 bit. I am anticipating problems with this as we use quite a lot of engineering software (often old) and would be better if we had a 32bit version. Can I get a set of disks from Lenovo for this?

i have 4G memory on Windows 7 64bit
why i only see 3.24G ?
what i can do ?

thank's in advance

Answer:why i see only 3.24G memory in Win7-64bit

Look in the BIOS for something akin to "Memory Remapping".
The hardware must also be able to address beyond 4 GB, as well.

I have a Google redirect bug I have been trying to get rid of for a couple weeks. I have gone through a lot of how to's without any luck. Kaperski TDSSkiller doesnt find anything.

i'm getting the error while trying to update to service pack1:
ERROR_MOD_NOT_FOUND(0x8007007e)

tried to download the SP1 and then install it, the same error.
as suggested by MS tried with my Kaspersky off with no luck, too.
Disconnected all cameras and printers - the same error...

could you please advice of any other solution to this problem.

Answer:Win7 64bit SP1 not installing

To be clear here, did you manually download the standalone, full Service Pack 1 and save it or was SP1 downloaded via Windows Update ?

Have you tried to run the System File Checker ? - How to Repair Windows 7 System Files with System File Checker

Have you run the System Update Readiness Tool (CheckSUR) for Windows 7 x64 yet ?
If yes, then please zip up and attach one of the logs that it created when it ran.
They are located at and named

Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log
Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.persist.log

If not, then please click the above link, download, and save it.
When the download completes close all open programs and web browsers.

With the system connected to the internet ( so that cab files can be downloaded ) run CheckSUR, and restart if prompted to.

CheckSUR may not be able to resolve this specific return code, 0x8007007E. The issue is most likely related to either Kaspersky or a missing/corrupted system file.

Let's see what one of the logs looks like first before someone recommends a Repair or Clean installation of Win 7.

Answer:why i see only 3.24G memory in Win7-64bit

From task manager, you can access the resource monitor. There you can see where all your memory is allocated. Likely it is due to Hardware Reserved memory.

Hi,

I'd like to know if it's possible to read the contents of a dll file on a Win7 64 bit installation?

Thanks.

Answer:How can I read a dll in Win7 64bit?

Yes, it is possible to read the contents of a dll file with the appropriate software. But why do you wish to do this? DLL's contain binary data that has no meaning except to an advanced programmer. To anyone else it would be a series of meaningless numbers.

I am thinking of getting the Windows 7 Professional 64bit Upgrade edition cheap from software4students.At the moment I am using Win 7 Premium 32bit and also have a copy of Win Vista Premium 32bit in case it's needed.Am I right in thinking that I could use the discs to install Win7 64bit from scratch doing a custom install without the need for any messing about checking previous operating systems.I did this when I upgraded from Vista to Win7. Just popped the disc in and did a clean install, no hassle.

Answer:Win7 64bit Pro upgrade?

Yes, should be OK for a clean install with the Upgrade version as you have a previous qualifying version in the form of the Home Premium version (click here for more details if required).But please be aware that you must also be eligible for a Student/Academic licence - read the relevant FAQs at click here.

Hi,

I tried to uninstall IE9 several months ago because I was told it was conflicting w/ Firefox. After I uninstalled it through control panel the folder and its contents were still on the hard drive. I manually deleted everything but the IEproxy.dll. I could not remove this because it was in use by windows explorer. Now I want to re-install IE9. The install starts but then I get the message that some files were in use by WE restart the CPU to use IE9. After restart all that is in the IE folder is the EIproxy.dll and a folder called SignUp. In that folder is a couple of Icons and nothing else. I have tried installing in safe mode. I can not do a restore because I have no idea when the first change was made and I have installed far to many programs to turn back now. I have tried FixIt which does not help. Is there a way to disable the IEproxy so that the IE install can proceed. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Russ

Answer:Can not re-install IE9 on Win7 64bit

Hello Russ and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's possible that by manually deleting files from Windows 7 some system files may have become damaged or corrupt and are now preventing the installation of IE9. Try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and reboot the computer after each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If there are no integrity violations you should be able to proceed with the IE9 installation. The suggested install method (including prerequisites) is outlined here:

How do I install or uninstall Internet Explorer 9?

If IE9 still won't install you may want to review these troubleshooting steps:
