Windows 7: W7 install experiences the past 2 days!

24 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit
W7 install experiences the past 2 days!

Hi all

First, thanks for all the great advice this forums puts out!

I was struggling to install W7 64 bit (freezing at 'Welcome') but 32 bit installed OK. I upped the video RAM in BIOS and removed one of the 2 * 2GB RAM cards. 64 bit installed clean at that point...!

I reinstalled the RAM only to find that W7 behaved very strangely - sometimes grey-screening, disabling Ethernet adapter, speakers etc and generally misbehaving, until I removed the 2GB RAM again. All OK.

THEN... In find I can't disable the tapping feature of my mousepad (annoying - too sensitive) even after downloading the Synaptics driver (no tapping page presented so can't disable the damn thing!...)

ANY advice welcomed. Thanks!

You are the third person today to post about this RAM issue (I probably missed a few in the other sections).

See this: Works fine with 2gb but doesnt work at all with 4gb?
