I have formatted about 6 times. I changed a setting in msconfig to make my startup faster, but I accidentally checked a box that the guy didnt check on the tutorial.
This is what I did that caused all of these problems.
I accidentally checked the box that said "Maximum Memory."
Thats when all this crap started happening.
Ever since then, Everytime I start my pc I get this error. mem.png picture by AlmostArtafact - Photobucket
I have formatted tons of times and the error is still there.
Also it jacked up something in my ram. I cant have like skype and msn open at the same time, photoshop and msn, vmware open at all, anything like that. My screen resolution will go from the highest (1920x1200 for a tv which is what I use) to like 480x whatever. My pc is super unstable now. Chrome crashes atleast 10 times a day.
A guy had me turn the pc off, take out the ram, turn it back on and wait for an error. Then turn it off, put the ram back in and see what happens. This actually worked, he said it flushes something or something idk. But it worked and I could have vmware,skype,msn and ,photoshop open all at the same time and it wouldnt crash lol. But anyway, after I restart my PC or it goes to sleep, same crap happens again, crash after crash :\.
Also, I have pretty much nothing the startup and when I turn my pc on, it idles out at about 3/4 memory usage.
I have tried resetting my bios, and formatting.
Anything else you suggest, like a super format 3000 or something I dont know about?
Also, I tried creating a system managed page file, it worked a little, not much though.
I thought if I formatted and reset my bios to factory settings it would fix it. Like I said nothing works.
Also, here is about where my Memory idles out at as soon as I turn it on.
Like I said everything was perfectly fine until I changed that setting.
