Feb 1, 2009 #19 JellyBrain TS Rookie Posts: 21 Just passing by.... Another case just today, I have a 40GB drive that I have Vista Ulimate 32bit installed on and use it for troubleshooting, this drive was left in the trunk of my TechSpot Account Sign up for free, it takes 30 seconds. I'm using 32 bit vista. http://upxpress.net/windows-vista/windows-vista-boot-help.php

The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down. If you're not already familiar with forums, watch our Welcome Guide to get started. in that case i probably just tried using too much right?

Thanks. When the physical RAM in the system exceeds 16 GB and the /3GB switch is used, the operating system will ignore the additional RAM until the /3GB switch is removed. by R. So frustrating!!!!

Last thing to do is push one of your new chips in one at a time to see if it boots them all take it out and place a new one It appears that I have a more recent version then the one listed. 5) Used MsConfig to modify the max memory to 4096. Latest BIOS always applied as soon as systems were put together, I quit since Nov 08, haven't built or setup many since! Source BTW, are you running the 64-bit version of Vista?

If you have submitted the RMA on line and have not got a reply!

It's showing a status: 0xc000014c and an info message "windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt Report aswin- Sep 25, 2014 at 06:30 AM restart At this point these are my only options, unless you have any other ideas for getting new modules. Such opinions may not be accurate and they are to be used at your own risk. I confirmed that this chipset is supposed to support 4GB(or 3.25 since its on Windows Vista 32 bit).

All the ram works and and all the ram slots work, i even tried installing 2X1gb and 2X512mb and that did not work either. Have to have 64bit to access more. have a peek here How should I go about fixing this?

I brought it in yesterday and it would not load, I could not even re-insall or do a repair install, it always froze, even safe mode. firstly, you need make sure that your computer motherboard support to 4Gb RAM, If ok, you have two methods to install 4Gb RAM.
