I'm having a problem with my Windows 7 64bit installation.
First a bit of history:
I bought my computer 3 years ago with Vista64 installed. I wiped the HD and installed XP Home and had no problems with it. I recently purchased Windows 7 to have a dual boot system so I could run som 64 bit programs and take advantage of increased memory capabilities.
My first attempt a installing Windows 7 failed until I removed all but 2 GB RAM. I now have Windows7 64 bit installed; but it won't start up if I have more than 3 GB RAM installed. As soon as the startup screen disappears I get a BSoD. This doesn't happen with 3GB or less RAM.
I've run the Drive Sweeper app and installed the latest drivers
for the video card; I run the Windows Startup Repair tool but nothing seems to work. There's no sense in me using Windows7 if I'm limited to just 3GB of memory.
Acer Aspire M1100
AMD Athlon 64 x2 4000+ dual core porcessor
3GB DDR2 PC5400 RAM (originally came with 2GB)
ATI Radeon HD 5570 with 1GB DDR3 memory. (came with onboard graphics only)
I've replaced the PSU with a 400W (factory installed was 250W).
I've run out of ideas on what to do (short of buying a new motherboard & CPU). Everything I've read about upgrading and my system specs says I should be able to install 8GB of RAM; but I can't.
Included are the Memory dump files and a picture of the BSoD.
