Perhaps you can help me. This is a different issue. I downloaded Itunes and
it said it was not installed correctly on my Vista 64 operating system. I
reinstalled it a total of three times and even did a "repair" install from
Microsofts "install/delete" control. Now it will not install at all. Any
ideas?

Hi,

If I recall correctly, Itunes' software is not 64-bit compatible. Until they
release a version that is, you cannot use it on an x64 system.

I have 4GB of physical RAM, windows vista shows only 3326MB. Does it really
help with performance if I have 4GB or should I just install 3GB memory? I
just bought the additional 2GB memory (had 2GB before) and wondering if I
should exchange for a 1GB one. Thanks.

Okay. I'm having the same problem. I just installed 2 more gig on top of my 2
gig on my rig and not only does vista say that it is 3.5 gig, but it keeps
crashing and is acting really odd. I've gotten the Blue screen many times. It
isn't the new ram because bios loves it and my mobo supports up to 8 gig.
Dxdiag tells me that my geforce 8600gt xxx has 1774 mb of ram when I have the
4 gig ram installed but I'm still crashing. I even took out one of my 1 gig
sticks and I am still crashing. I am running 32 bit vista ultimate and can't
exactly afford to go out and buy a 64 bit vista. I have tried all the updates
with no results. So what is a solution to my hangups? Thanks in advance.

Since you don't say what hardware your using, esp which mobo and what memory
modules, the only advice is to go to the mobo manufacturer's website and
review the information on tested ram and any limitations of the mobo. There
should be a user forum on that website devoted to your mobo. This is
probably the number one issue on those forums because it is an issue often
seen here. There are many threads on your issue already started on this
newsgroup and you should review those.

Colin,

It is a pleasure to see you back... I really mean that.

I hope you are doing well, and I hope you plan to stick
around.

Take care,

Michael

I'm so happy to hear that, Colin.
Absolutely thrilled to see you back.

Please, pardon the bragging;

Folks, Colin is one of the most helpful MVPs you will
ever encounter. He helped so many of us through
the Vista beta period and through the the early months
after Vista's RTM. Knowledgeable in so many areas, too.
He's also brilliant with using various virtual machines/vhds.

Maybe interesting would be for notebooks!
If my notebook only has 2 slots, and I have 2GB stick installed, and wished
to increase RAM should I install 1 stick of 1GB, or 1 stick of 2GB?
If I would install 1GB, I'll have more then enough RAM, but the question
would be, would it still be Dual channel compatible or something?

If I'd install a 2GB stick, would my notebook use considerably more energy
then using only a 1 Gb stick?

I have experimented with my 2x1GB/2x512MB DDR PC5300 SODIMM Memory sticks,
and the benchmarks told me that my system was faster using 1x1GB then 2x512MB.
Also my system was faster using 1x2GB instead of 2X1024MB.
Now I want to know if it'll be faster using 1X2GB, or 2X2GB.
Ofcourse the LARGE Memory benchmark tests show that 4GB will be better then 2.
But in many cases the LARGE benchmark tests are not-real life, unless you
do video/photo editing, or play lots of games on your laptop.

That's not the case with me, I just want the smaller applications to run
smoothly.
By adding a 1x2GB RAM stick, I've been able to increase my VISTA experience
from 3,0 to 3,1 (since my videocard uses 64MB shared memory), and yes I know,
it's an 'older' laptop.

So all of the tested memory was Kingston value memory; DDR, on a Sony Vaio
notebook.

I don't have any explenations as to why; but these where just but my
observations.
I would like to know what this 'Dual channel DDR'-theory is. (I'm just
running a 32-bit processor, and am not thinking about upgrading it to a 64
version).
