I think you mean you want x64. x86 is 32 bit, and x64 is 64bit

It would be much easier to just pull out sticks until it works. If none of them do, try some others. As a system builder, he might have some.

Glad to know! It is a great OS, and my favourite ever.

I initially assumed that this might be a problem with my newer hardware not being compatible with XP so I upgraded to the Windows 7 64-bit RC. It again worked extremely well for awhile before it started to get stuck in a continuous startup repair loop. I received advice on another forum that the problem might be with my power supply so I replaced my Rosewill 500W with a Corsair 750W about a week and a half ago. The computer has been working flawlessly until early this morning when it started giving me consistent BSODs even in Safe Mode. I ran a disk check which found no problems and then performed a system restore which didn't fix the problem. The BSOD error messages also seem to be different every time. At first it was IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR EQUAL = a BAD DRIVER - Unsigned has been this way since Whistler and then it followed up with various ones including BAD_POOL_HEADER and PAGE_FAULT_IN_A_NONPAGED_AREA = normally this mean you have crosslinked files & or bad sectors in the hdd.. With the exception of critical Windows updates I made no recent changes to my system before this started happening. Anybody have any idea as to what the problem may be?
I do hope this helps. and you do know how to fix these problems? YES.
If you need more help we shall try 1 fix at a time.

1. Windows 7 has one of the best MEMORY Diagnostics built in.
2. Windows 7 has one of the very best HDD diagnostics and repair utilities built in.

So why does he need to find and download an burn on a disk...?

I didn't say he needed to download anything, I was just telling him becuase he was thinking he needed x86 for 64bit. I was simply correcting him so he didnt get anything in the wrong format if he were to get anyhting.
