When you use the "Repair" option of chkdsk, it uses as much memory as it can to repair the disk as fast as possible. You should only use the repair option if the disk actually needs it, nor should you be using the computer while running a chkdsk.

The limitation is that this *must* be provided for in your programs and drivers in order to work. If your mailman only looks at the '1234567890' but never looks at the street name, then he can and will sometimes deliver a letter to the wrong place. The same thing is true of PAE - If/when then individual program haven’t been coded to look in multiple tables for the needed memory locations in addition to the numerical addresses, messages can and will often go to the wrong place. In Windows, this is a called a “memory access violation”, and results in a blue screen. Additionally, individual programs under PAE can still only use up to 4 GB. Kernels and drivers can be made aware of PAE, but they can still only use 4 GB ranges at a time.
I came across another forum where this was posted. Where did you get this from? It is simply not how it works.
