SURT WIN7 64bit

Q: 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.)

Preferred Solution: SURT WIN7 64bit

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.)

A: SURT WIN7 64bit

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.

Hi every one,

i have this machine which is causing too much headache for me,

this machine was having Windows XP 64 Bit,
and it had a lot of BSOD crashes, then i just decided that it's the time to make the move to Windows 7 for this high performance machine, since i was not able to upgrade to Windows 7 because of some applications just working on Windows XP 64 Bit, but now there is a copy of it,

Any way i'm still having those BSOD crashes,
I have replaced the SSD 500GB hard drive with another regular hard drive with no results,
tried to remove and install nVidia Driver,
tried to install a different version of that driver with no results,
tried to remove McAfee AV and installed Kaspersky Internet security 2013 also no result,

now i have grabbed all the data using SF Tool, and i really hope that u can help me with that issue.

thank you

Hey,

I purchased the Win 7 Pro Upgrade 32bit via digitalriver, but I've been doing some reseach and probably should have selected the 64bit version.

- Any ideas how I can get the 64bit version?

- For those who ordered the 32bit back-up disc kit for the extra $15 and have received it, does it come with both 32bit & 64bit?

- I've already installed and activated the 32bit version, but when I go to install the 64bit version, will I need to / is there a way to deactivate my initial 32bit install or will this not matter?

Thanks for your advice.

Camo15, Welcome to SevenForums
The first two questions call Digital River about a refund and reorder. Have heard that some have had success with that. No need to un activate however if you decide to try to use that Key again then you will have to call MS and talk to them to make it work on another pc if that is your intent. Good luck to you and enjoy!

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?

A: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).

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

A: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 all,

Hope all is well. I just purchased a Toshiba Satellite P855-S520 laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), SP1 already installed and would like to upgrade it Windows 7 Ultimate.

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.

A: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.

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?

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.

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?

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?

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

Hello and Welcome !

You have excluded few files from the folder. Please add them and attach it back.

Seems like one of the cause for the crash is AtiPcie.sys i would recommend to uninstall your Display Drivers completely and reinstall from a fresh download. If that didn't fix it go to C:\Windows\Drivers and rename AtiPcie.sys to AtiPcie.old and reboot the System and see if that makes any difference

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I recently started having lots of bluescreens that seem to appear randomly. I tried some things but still don't know the reason, therefore I need your help.
As I stated, there is no apparent cause of the bluescreens, seeing that they appeared while watching a video stream (youtube.com and own3d.tv), playing a game or just anything I can think of.

First of all, my system:
AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Processor 3.60 GHz
16GB DDR3 PC-1600 RAM (4x4GB)
AMD Radeon HD 6950 2048MB
Gigabyte GA-880GMA-UD2H, AMD 880G Mainboard

I first thought it might be a driver problem so I updated them with no effect.
Then I suspected my RAM and ran memtest86 over night, and it indeed revealed some errors. I have included 2 photos with the results.
Yet, I'm not sure if it really is the RAM so I wanted to ask if you guys could confirm it or deny and find the real cause.
I also included a photo of my last blue screen, stating that dxgkrnl.sys was involved (perhaps pointing to video card issues?).
Lastly, I included the 2 recent memory dump files from c:/windows/minidump.

Here is the link to the bluescreen and memtest photos as well as the dmp files:
File-Upload.net - BlueScreen.zip

Thx in advance,
Topologe

A:Many Bluescreens on Win7 64bit

Hello,

Judging from your Memtest86 results, you have either bad RAM or a bad motherboard. Try taking out all but one stick and running Memtest on just that. Repeat for all the other sticks, and see if you can pick out which one(s) are bad.

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)
GTX480
OCZ ssd
SB xfi

Cheers
Chris

A: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?

I been having an issue with random BSOD on my pc. I've had 7-8 BSOD in the past 2 weeks and most seem to occur when the pc is idle. 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.

A: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).

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

A: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:

Dave Hi and welcome

Yep just a few BSOD's eh. well did a quick analysis and it seems most of the chreashes are caused by memory. A couple were caused by the dierectx driver (which still could be a memory issue) that being said I would

download memtestx86 and run it for at least 5 passes. yes its a long time. you need to so that you can tell if it is a memory issue or a heat issue

I would also run a system file check. type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow

If you are overclocking stop

let us know the results

Hi. It's your firewire driver causing issues.

Right click the 1394 driver in the device manager. Update driver software. Browse my computer. Let me pick.

Then choose the one with Legacy in it's name. Install that. Issue resolved and you are good as new. (I run this driver myself for 1394.)

A:Win7 Pro 64Bit - memdump

Link to a how-to: WinDbg Analysis Report

Unfortunately, the Windows Debugging Tools aren't able to access symbols for your operating system files (in particular Win32k.sys) from the Microsoft Symbol Server - so that makes debugging them difficult if not impossible.

Please do the following (this will not affect the analysis of the current files - but it may help later files that are acquired):
- activate/validate the Windows installation at Genuine Microsoft Software
- run sfc.exe /scannow to replace any problem files
- open a support incident with Microsoft to see if they can fix the missing symbols issue ( Support for Windows 7 technical problems and troubleshooting )
- If that doesn't fix it, then wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows
- don't use "leaked"/torrent builds (if this is the case we may never find a fix)

So, let's try some old-fashioned detective work.....

First, please provide this info: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

Please update your ASACPI.sys file immediately. The 2005 version (which you have) is a known cause of BSOD's.
Go to this page: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support- download_item_mkt
Enter your OS in the dropdown box
Scroll down to the Utilities section and download/install the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Win7 32&64-bit " - it's the 15th item down in the Utilities section

I have been lately getting BSODs. They happen usually when I open the computer for first time in a day. The computer can stay on for like 3 hours when I have got like 5 crashes. System specs are in my profile and dumps are attached on my post. I couldnt run the perfmon /report. My W7 is full retail and is the original OS on the system. The age of my computer is like 2yrs and the OS is the same age.

Edit:Because of the crashes I ran Memtest86+ on my old memory (same as my new but 4GB) and it gave about a million errors. I bought new memory and the computer still gets BSODs.

Edit2: Attached 1 dump file, going to attach more some time

Edit3: Added more dump files

A:Win7 64bit BSOD very often

No dmps in upload try this method

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:





Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

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.

A: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.

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.

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

The first step would be to see if your computer has the specs for 64 bit. Go to Microsoft.com and use the Windows Upgrade Advisor. If you do have the required specs, you should be able to install.

If you can install, wipe clean, do not give your key, when asked, just continue with the process. After installation use it for a while, if satisfied install programs. After you know that you are good, supply your key number. At this point make a system image and put it in a safe place. You will be set, now. If a problem ever occurs you can use the system image to get up and going again.

hi

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

thank's in advance

A: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.

Clean install win7 home prem. CPU usage is at a constant 100% - 32bit runs smooth but I needed 64bit for all 8g of my ram. Everything I do is so slow, windows is unusable in this condition. All processes/services are normal - I've not did anything to it other than clean install. USB drive won't even reconize in 64bit when it does in 32. This happens from boot, it's slow as soon as windows starts to load. Im just idle on the desktop with task manager open with 100% CPU - all non Microsoft services turned off or on makes no difference.

Here is what I am running:
