Windows Vista Will Not Boot With 4gb Of RAM

Just finished doing all the updates, going to re-boot, put the 1GB back n and post back with 3GB! thanks! Read up on it here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/108393 Note that Vista isn't listed here because it uses BCD Boot Configuration Data rather than a boot.ini file. I was able to get my computer to start ONCE with all four sticks of RAM, and you are correct, it was maxed out at 3.5 GB. http://midsolutions.org/windows-vista/windows-vista-installer-will-not-boot.html

if you have the box ticked you can manipulate this setting. I also bought 4 pieces of Corsair 1Ghz FSB speed memory and it turned out a piece was bad. If you bought 2 x 4GB, there's the problem, you should have gotten 4 x 2GB. And with either module? __________________ Ram Guy Contact me via our Support Center Below!

And everyone does NOT want to use all the memory in the system all the time (98% of us crave all the ram we can get). Sign up now.

in that case i probably just tried using too much right? See more My hp laptop will not boot... and yes, i am running 64bit vista. his comment is here Already have an account?

I will try it as soon as I get home! If not, it's pointless to run more than 4GB RAM.http://support.gateway.com/s/deskto...http://www.crucial.com/upgrade/Gate...EDIT: another thing, if you have a 1066MHz FSB CPU, you should be running DDR3-1066. This setting is where the system is told how much memory to use.
