Windows 7: Win 7 wont go past expanding!!

23 Apr 2010   #11

Windows 7

So....i went home anxious of not managing to acheive my goal... Cause the wife needs facebook etc etc... and i am away for 5 days.....

Outcome. The windows 7 dvd i had i successfully installed on 2 notebooks. you can choose 32 or 64 bit. Does not need a loader. so one would think that it should work on my pc. However i took from work our windows 7 just straight 64 bit and put in the cd drive...... hey presto no problems what so ever....

Strange thing is 7 sees 4gb ram but can only work on 3gb. presuming that 1 of my sticks is dodgy. i am then assuming that this is the reason the original dvd would not install.

Wife happily on facebook...however moaning that have not spent much time with her....cause trying to fix computer....they have no understanding. ahhhhh!!!!! should have let her do it.

Thank you to Jonathan King
