Windows 7: Dataram Diskram -2147217407 generic failure

Dataram Diskram -2147217407 generic failure

Hi all.

Well i got a really big problem here. Today i wanted to use the program called Diskram from the company Dataram. As i see it supports almost every version of windows, even windows 8 now. The strange thing is when i launch the program i got this error message:

Error Number= -2147217407 generic failure

If i run it in compability mode & as admin then error wont show up, but it will fail at creating the diskram.

I have tried to restart but that caused my laptop to show a black screen. The screen wasn't 100% black, it was turned on but in some way it wouldn't really connect. The win7 start sound came and all that stuff. I managed to start the laptop with the screen showing. Took me almost 30minutes to fiqure out how to fix this.

Do anyone know what this error could be caused by? I cant really find people with that kind of a problem. Its just soo weird

I hope someone can help me :)

Thanks in advance

I tried just to search on the error code and i managed to open it without any errors.
I saw a guy had some problems with some VBscript, and he told that he had a intel graphic card(integreted) and a Nvidia graphic card. I had to turn it on auto-select, instead of nvidia all the time. It must be some problems with gfx ram and normal ram :)

Using Dataram RAMdisk
Mentioned recently I swapped my hard drive for an SSD, then increased RAM to 8 GB. Installed RAMdisk (512 MB) and trying to send all the temporary files I can think of. So far sending the cache for Google Chrome and IE, also redirected TMP and TEMP folders to RAMdisk. Anything else?
