RAM (Random Access Memory) - "Shared Memory" , Windows shows less RAM.

Q: RAM (Random Access Memory) - "Shared Memory" , Windows shows less RAM.

hello madame and sirs,

Ihave got 128 mb ram on my pc. when i start my pc it shows 32mb shared memory. windows shows 96mb ram. i am not able to install some applications which require min.128mb ram.(windows 2000 pro)&(windows98se)

i once used KNOPPIX LIVE CD and then created some swap file as prompted..... which i deleted later on. i dint notice the ram showed my windows then. incidently i have even formatted my c: drive lateron .... but windows shows 96 mb ram

I want my ram to be fully utilised.. pls help

Preferred Solution: RAM (Random Access Memory) - "Shared Memory" , Windows shows less RAM.

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: RAM (Random Access Memory) - "Shared Memory" , Windows shows less RAM.

128 - 32 = 96

Shared memory means that a part of your system memory is used by the video card and is not available for programs. You should be able to adjust the amount of shared memory in BIOS setup. Note that you will never be able to get the full 128MB unless you get a proper video card.

Not knowing which graphics adapters they are makes it really hard to know which to recommend. A ton of video memory on a very low end card or low end integrated GPU isn't going to help much.

I have a user in the domain that had access to her network shares (mapped network drive and H:\users\usershares\*username*) and now she is getting "Access Denied" errors. I have checked to make sure that she has the correct permissions and she does. I know that she can connect to that server because she can access other shared drives on the same server. She is also the only user in the domain that has this issue. If I log on as her on my PC she DOES have normal access to all her shares. She is running windows XP pro sp3. The domain controller is Server 2008.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hello guys, the last week I've been strugling with these nasty BSODs. At first I thought it was my HDDs as ntoskrn.exe somewhat hinted towards that from googling it. My HDDs have been causing a lot of trouble earlier as well due to their somewhat long years of service. However, I've recently reformated my computer and installed W7 on a brand new Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD hoping the BSODs would go away, they didn't.

I googled BSOD and I stumbled upon this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. I'm somewhat desperate, as I need my computer working for both work, school and amusement.

I've been trying to run Memtest in order to test my memory but without any results. I'm also currently running on only on 4GB chip instead of two, to see if the problem still exists. Also, without any results.

This is the second time I'm writing this thread btw, I was just about to post it and my PC crashed.

Here is my two logs + dxdiag (last crash didn't generate a log oddly enough).

Here is additional hardware/gear that I use:

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
Razer Naga
Logitech G19
Logitech C920 (Webcam)
Corsair 750W PSU

My temperatures are also good. Both CPU and MB idles at around ~25. GPU's all good too. I'm also using a Corsair 650D chassi with dustfilters at both air-income so dust is minimal. On top off this, I use airpressure to clean away dust somewhat regularly and I also did exactly this 2 days ago when I reinstalled the pc.

Well... I never thought I'd see the day when I actually need others' advice on figuring out computers errors, but here I am! First off, a big thanks to all of the great advice/suggestions on the forum. I think I've narrowed it down, but I figure I'd let the experts take a quick peak and either confirm or deny my suspicions.

Background: Built this machine in spring of last year. Basic specs: Q6600 2.4, 4gig (4x1) memory, Gigabyte mobo,Nvidia 8800GT gfx card. Ran fine under windows XP 32bit. Never any BSOD or other issues.

Several days ago, I purchased and installed student version of Win 7 64bit. Although the clean install went fine and it supposedly found all of the correct drivers... that made me nervous so I installed the latest NVIDIA 191.07 drivers and the ones for the realtek sound/eithernet from the motherboard manufacturer (Gigabyte).

Since the install, I randomly get maybe ~1-2 BSODs a day... in rate of time we're talking maybe one every 2 hours or so, although I've also had 2 in quick succession.

Following the advice I read on the forums...

I ran the system file checker... that was fine.
I have also included my info from MSINFO32.exe (see below with the minidumps).
I started doing some minidump analysis
I have only included the last 3 minidumps below, but I've had a few before that. Each time it is slightly different, HOWEVER, there is a common theme which appears to be hardware. The crashes are always with some sort of windows related exe such as C... Read more

Here's a description of the STOP 0x3B error: BSOD Index
Here's a description of the STOP 0x50 error: BSOD Index

I'd first suspect your video drivers. In order to check this, download the latest version of the nVidia drivers from this link: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers

Then uninstall the current video drivers from Control Panel...Programs and features...Uninstall a program.
Then install the freshly downloaded one's and monitor for BSOD's.

I'd also wonder if there's a hardware issue with your video card - but the only way that I know of to check that is to try another video card. Do you have another video card that you can use as a test?

If both of these tests doesn't work out, please post back and we'll talk about using Driver Verifier to help force a crash that will point out the problem driver's name.

I'm having ALOT of problems right now...
Most annoying and disrupting problem are the random BSOD's. I downloaded Whocrashed and alot of crashes seem to be "memory management" . Sometimes it's 3rd party programs..

The BSOD lasts for 1/2 a second and computer immediately reboots so it's hard for me to say what it was about. I checked in event viewer the different errors but i'm at 1000+ error/warnings.

At one point, as i was downloading Leagues of Legends ( game ) and Crysis 2 from Origins, while my uTorrent was actively downloading and Firefox was opened, i got an error from uTorrent saying "windows ran out of memory".

What do I do. My computer keeps randomly crashing and i've been looking online for solutions, it's just too complicated for me to find anything related to my problems.

The BSODS often occur on a reboot of the computer after installing/uninstalling a program. Right after entering my user password , 2 seconds into loading desktop, it immediately crashes. Not always but i've noticed it happens often.

now i'm getting problems with applications. Its crashes after crashes after crashes.

I have origin installed for Crysis 2 and BF3.

Crysis 2 and BF3 though are a very big problem. Both applications crash non-stop. i can't even play for one second. BF3 has a browser launcher, when i try to launch a game, before even opening it says " Battlefield 3 has stopped working ". In the Event Viewer, it seems to give me something ... Read more

A:Random BSODS (mostly "memory management"), often on startup

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.

Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.

Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.


If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.

Let us know the results, with the subsequent crash dumps, if any.

Hello everyone
I have this problem for more than 3 months for now...

The INSTRUCTION AT "0x00a96ce0"referenced memory at "000000000" couldn't be written".

That's always what i get when i restart my computer,just before screen goes dark.
I believe that it has to do something with Microsoft updates.The reason i believe this, is that i once reinstalled my PC and didn't have any problem until i didn't update my PC.
And i posted here that thinking my problem was solved but unfortunately i was wrong.

Please if you have any tips on this one let me know it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I'm installing a new laptop for a user whose old laptop is starting to break down. He needs Access 97 in order to be able to look into an old database that is not in production use anymore, and that we have been unable to correctly migrate to a later version.

I installed Access 97 from the original CD with the original product key, and the installation as such runs smoothly, but then when I try to run Access it immediately throws up an "insufficient memory" error (or rather, its equivalent in Dutch). Right after that it says that a system error has occurred or there was insufficient memory to run Microsoft Access.

On his old laptop, that has the same version of Windows XP, Access 97 does run properly.

I've tried running Access 97 in Win95, Win98, WinNT or Win2k compatibility mode to no avail.

Any ideas?

I really hope someone can help on this.

New build. MSI H81i mITX MoBo with Celeron G1840 (Socket 1150) and 1 stick of Corsair 4gb DDR3-1333 memory. 300watt PSU. One 500gb HDD and 1 DVD drive (both sata-3)

When I switch on the computer, all I get is 3 long beeps. No display. Nothing.

MSI uses the AMI BIOS, and according to their website: "3 beeps - Base 64K memory failure - bad memory".

Memory is fine (brand new and tested in another build). I removed and reseated it to be sure. Memory is in DIMM1 (of 2) closest to CPU.

There are separate Beep Codes for "memory", so I'm wondering what "Base 64K memory" is? If it were the CPU, that has its own Beep code as well, so I don't think it's the cpu cache.

I'm trying to build a HTPC for Mother's Day, so time is of the essence. Please help! TIA.

I see this error pretty frequently, with different addresses.

Everything was running fine until yesterday, when my PC crashed with the BSOD giving me the "IRQL not less or equal" error. I ignored it and carried on- which resulted in the computer crashing with "Memory management" blues whenever I started something that was not the browser (It later started crashing on browser start too).

I first thought it was the temperature - Memtest95 and GPUtemp said otherwise.

So I started testing the RAM (taking one DIMM out) with Memtest86- It passed 4 cycles, so I shut the PC down and put the other DIMM in.

When I turned the PC on again, there was no signal sent to my screen, and none to my keyboard (and the HDD light on the front of the case did not start blinking like usual). The fans were running, so I figured something might be wrong with the DIMMs I put in. I removed the graphics card and plugged the screen into the motherboard.

Now the screen gets a signal, background lighting starts up, and then it shuts down to hibernation again. This repeats itself until the machine is shut down manually.

I got no idea what to do.

System specs: http://pastebin.com/DQwejZLx
I can not post the Minidump folder, since the PC can't start and I did not back it up. Sorry.

Thank you for your help.

So, that was complete, tryed to do it again and I still kept getting these error messages. But I saw something on my desktop that wasn't there previously. It is an error log. Here is the error log;

what to do in this case ""Windows-virtual memory low""

pl advise

A:""Windows-virtual memory low""

Double the values at least until you get more ram

Run sysdm.cpl and go to the location in my screenshot.

Be sure to click the "set" tab after making the change.

The default is typically 1 1/2 times installed ram. But if you have a lot of ram, this rule of thumb may not apply.

You may also benefit by running msconfig and selecting the startup tab.

There you can disable many programs from starting that are not always needed -- such as media player startups. Choices are easily reverseable.

Hi all,

Sorry to repeat a question I see a lot of instances of, but none of those seem to be addressing my problem correctly.

I have not done anything new to my computer in recent days, so this problem has caught me off guard (I see most instances of this problem come after upgrading to Windows 7, I have had Win 7 installed for a while now).

Here is a summary of my problem:
1) My computer recently got stuck on the "Starting Windows Screen." So I manually held the power button to reboot.
2) On reboot, it said there was a need to run a startup repair, which I did. Everything checked fine, except for the last one which said "System Volume on Disk is Corrupted," which it claimed to have successfully fixed.
3) After rebooting from repair, the system gets stuck on "Starting Windows Screen" for a good 10-15 minutes, after which it runs a registry check. After it completes that I get hopeful -- but the screen then gets stuck on an all black screen with just the mouse cursor and nothing more.
4) Additional note: Attempting to start the computer on "safe mode" leads safe mode startup to become stalled on "DRIVERS\CLASSPNP.SYS"
5) The lastest attempt to repair yielded this message: "Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

A:Stuck on "Starting Windows", Repair Shows "System Volume on Disk is Corrupted"

Hi Stan, Hopefully I can help you out....or at least lead you in the right direction. From my experience, the symptoms you are suggesting sound like perhaps a dying Hard drive.

1. Do you have the windows 7 boot disks that came with your computer or when you bought the Operating System? If so, you could try and insert one of those and boot from it, and attempt to repair the installation. (this won't affect your data, only the windows system files).

2. If that doesn't fix it, you could try a fresh reinstall of windows 7, and see if that works.

3. If neither of those work, its likely that because of the fact that when windows is repairing itself, it is generally putting copies of its system files in the same physical location on your disk. Because your disk is obviously not completely dead, ie....its still loading to the windows 7 startup screen, its just copying files to the bad sectors on your hard drive and gets stuck when loading. This is especially my guess because you said Safe mode is having same problems, even after attempting to repair. In the past, I've tried and salvage a disk by reformatting it and only leaving on partitions which do not contain the bad clusters. This takes some time, and some guess work.....and really this is only a "bandaid" fix because once the disk has bad clusters, its only a matter of time before these things give out. You wouldn't want to trust your important data on it anyways....

I hope this leads you in ... Read more

Not much in your log, but you should have a security analyst look it over

In the meantime, Run the System File Checker to see if it resolves your IE issue.

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not reconized) (Note that there is a space between sfc and /scannow)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.

In all likelihood you will be prompted to insert the Windows XP CD.

I recently had a virus on my computer. During the time of cleaning and removing infected files my computer came up with a error message that I can't seem to find help on. When my computer starts up, the first thing that pops up is an error message stating that there is a rundll32.exe - Application Error. The message says, The instruction at "0x010017f1" referenced memory at "0x01000003c". The memory could not be "read".

I have downloaded and run just about every program that I can find to attempt to fix this error. I have searched my computer and registry for any of the numbers in the error message with no results. I have installed and run multiple antivirus and maleware removal programs, but have not been able to remove this problem. I sure hope you can help me with this final problem in cleaning up my computer issues.

Thanks in advance for all of your assistance.

Hi Chuck McD and welcome to TSF.

When did you first notice the issue? Is it the same when you start in Safe Mode (tap F8 repeatedly when starting up your computer and choose Safe Mode from the options. It could very well be a program that you have recently installed that caused the issue.

Geekgirl had some good advice on this forum for another user that may help here. Can you try some of the advice that she gave and report back

I would also suggest you start a new thread in the ' Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help' section and give then all the details they require to help you as you had a prior infection that may not have been fully resolved.

Hi there,

Is your computer a desktop or laptop computer? What is the brand/model of your computer may I ask? Please provide your computer specs when you get a chance. By knowing your computer specs, we would definitely be able to troubleshoot your computer issue more efficiently. Have you installed any software or updates recently?

Try this, download "MEMTEST86+" and put the program onto a bootable media(e.g. CD). Afterwards, reboot your computer and boot your computer to the Memtest86+ CD. Then, follow the on-screen instructions, and scan your computer memory for any errors.

Did this error come up all of a sudden? The error titles "Application Error", possibly a program error conflict somewhere.

Hi there,I use a few programs from Oracle and Bentley (Microstation-CAD) which all recommend enabling the "Lock Pages in Memory" privilege.  All instructions to change this are either done using gpedit or secpol - neither of which are installed by default in Win 7 Home Premium.  ( in this case its the 64 bit flavour - 16G RAM - Quad Core CPUs )  Is there a supported means to do this on Win 7 HP?  If not - could I make the changes on a Win 7 Ultimate desktop (recording all changes to the registery) - then simply merge the relevant changes into the registry of Windows 7 HP?  I'd rather not as it may cause issues down the track if for some reason it is enabled in a future service pack/fix.The other option is to either boot up into a Vista partition and/or use a VM - but I suspect that would negate any possible benefit of enabling the privilege. Thanks in advance.GB

Hi Netwar,
I do not use Oracle, but I find an article for how to enable large page support for Oracle. It introduces how to enable large page support via Local Security Policy and Registry. I don’t know if they are step 1 and step 2 or two different methods. Please check it below:

When I boot my computer Windows freezes at the "Windows is starting..." screen but I can still move the mouse. This just began today. It does this same thing when I boot in the last good config and safe mode. So basically, Windows won't get past this screen no matter what mode I use.

Also, I can't reinstall XP because I get a technical error blue screen that says I may not have adequate disk space, a driver may need to be disabled, or I may need to change the video adapter whenever I try to boot from the install CD. The message also says "pci.sys."

I've had this computer for 1+ years with no problems. The only thing I can think of is that I was downloading a movie when I accidently turned off the computer at its power source earlier today. So the computer was turned off abruptly at its power source and has NOT gotten past the "Windows is starting..." screen since. Could this have ruined both of my memory cards?

I'm a beginner at the technical stuff on computers so help is definitely needed and appreciated. A step by step is preferred.
