You could use the spare 4 GB of RAM to create a 4 GB RAMDisk (that's what I've done in XP on my PC).

@ K745 did you read and understand my post # 10?

Your Start Up items aren't to bad. I suggest at this time just having you security programs checked marked.

Remember that when you uncheck something doesn't mean it won't work when needed.
It just means it will not start at boot and run in the background when not needed.


Example:

Adobe Reader if unchecked will still when you or Windows needs them to run.

If you tick on Adobe Reader it will just start like it should.
When you close Adobe Reader it will just shut down and wait for your or Windows 7 next command when it's needed again.

@Layback Bear

yes i've read ur post #10 but I don't have any idea with what u were talking.. please explain wat should i do..

Yep I know that about checking/unchecking the start up item.. thanks.. Ok now, so the start up programs are not the ones causing the 'not responding', are there other things u can think of causing this?

You system specs.
You only want 4 gig of memory install on a 32b system.

How did you do that??
You would have to install a RAMDisk program.
I use a program that came with my external HDD.

Here are a couple of links:

Some RAM drives when used with 32-bit operating systems (particularly 32-bit Microsoft Windows) on computers with IBM PC architecture allow memory above the 4 GB point in the memory map, if present, to be used; this memory is unmanaged and not normally accessible. Software using unmanaged memory can cause stability problems.

L745 already has the ram installed and it would cost nothing to clean install Windows 7/64 using the all ready paid for COA.
