Preferred Solution: physical memory not detected, windows cannot boot up

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Please...be exact when reporting error messages.  They are important clues, which...if not properly reported...lead down the wrong path.

I recently upgraded my Windows 7 laptop from 4GB of physical memory to 8 GB. The Bios immediately recognized the added memory but it appears the Task Manager physical memory has not changed and only recognizes ~3.5 GB of available memory. Is there a way
to have Task Manager recognize the added memory? Is the fact that the Task Manager does not recognize the added memory mean other functions are not recognizing the added memory?

A:Avaiable Physical memory = 12mb, Physical memory total = 1gb

It's been a while since I had to troubleshoot an XP system, but I'll give it a shot. it sounds like you have a memory leak, which means a program that uses more and more memory. What process in Task Manager is using up the memory?

A:Dumping Physical Memory - Boot Problems

I think you're right about Norton and I'd suspect that the download on day 2 failed. If you can get into Safe Mode and untick all the Norton/Symantec entries in msconfig you could have a chance of getting back to Normal Mode. If you can't get as far as Safe Mode, put in the XP CD and ignore the first "R" option, go ahead agree to the EULA and accept the second Repair option, which should make any necessary adjustments to the Registry. Your other installed programmes and data shouldn't suffer as they would in the first Recovery option. Then untick the Norton entries from Startup tab in msconfig, then go online and download AVG or something.

Do you have XP Service Pack 2? If not it would be a good idea to install it straight after the repair.

It is on a separate partition.

No, it didn't. In fact I have been using both Windows 7 and ubuntu for over a year and it works fine. The issue appeared few days ago.

Hi guys,
I know you're likely sick of Physical Memory Dump threads, but I'm completely stumped on this one.

Windows XP Pro, SP3: physical memory dump every time I start the computer. First "fixed" it by simply running only one of the two sticks of RAM, but now it dumps even with just one.

Windows 7 HP: works just fine.

Clearly, the hardware seems to be just fine. Otherwise, the Win7 partition wouldn't work - right? If this is something you could help me with, please let me know if there's any other information I can provide to aid in the troubleshooting. Thanks!

I just installed XP on a separate partition on my hard drive, but soon realized that the proportions were really messed up and that I didn't want to use XP anymore. I had to download vistabootPRO to get Vista working again, and then I cleared the partition that had XP on it. After I did that, all of the space (3.3GB) is now "Unallocated Space". Though I guess that isn't the real problem, as soon as I log into my account (I just checked this when I restarted, before starting any applications) my physical memory shoots up to about 75%. I am guessing there are still some remnants of the XP installation somewhere, and I have no idea how to clear that up. Any ideas?

A:No Physical Memory Left after Uninstalling Dual Boot

where are you getting the physical memory info? One thing I noticed about vista is when you start it, it puts most of your memory into cache and then use it as needed. This means there will be very little left under free.

Winxp should not affect the running of vista since it was in a different partition/drive. It makes no difference whether or not its installed or uninstalled.

You can get back the unallocated harddrive space by formating it.

I am running Windows XP Professional. I tried to install some new ram I just bought. ( DDR 2100 256MB ). The bios shows that i have 256 megs of ram but as soon as windows gets up I get a physical memory dump with the message "Registry Error". Is there any way to find out what the problem is and/or would doing a clean install of my system solve the problem? Any information would be very helpful. Thank you!

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests (located at this link: Hardware Diags ). They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:

Quote:




H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link) - Test ALL of the hard drives.

Also, please run one of these free, independent online malware scans to ensure that your current protection hasn't been compromised: Free Online AntiMalware Resources (read the details at the link)
There are also free, bootable antivirus disks at this link: Free Online AntiMalware Resources - Bootable Disks




FWIW - I suspect a malware infection, so please run the antimalware scans and post back if it finds anything. We'll move on from there.

In task manager I can see the process svchost.exe taking up anywhere from 5-25% of my CPU usage, and much more of my Physical Memory usage (constantly between 70-90%).

I used process explorer to open up the threads for svchost.exe and I can see multiple instances of ntdll.dll!RtlUserThreadStart using up to 10% of my CPU and having very high "Cycles Delta" numbers. Not sure if that is the source of my problems or how I would fix that if it is.

And that is a problem why? win 7 usually has far more processes than that, and it puts some of its memory in a fast cache for when you need it.

It is perfectly normal

Our desktop computer had slowed to a near stop. I checked task manager. No applications are running. I checked memory usage. 93% physical memory is being used. The largest portion of that, well over 1,000,000, is being used by explorer.exe. Again, I tested it after I had closed all programs (which took forever and kept blacking out the screen) and windows. We have an external drive that has been working fine and suddenly is not being read by the computer. Don't know if it is all part of the same program. Were running a diagnostic on it and the diagnostic quit. No processes for the dianotic were still running to cause the high memory. Help!!

A:Windows 7 93% physical memory usage by explorer.exe

Hi jmatdrama,

What is the brand/model of your computer? Did this problem recently started happening? Have you installed any programs recently? Boot your computer to safe mode and try running a virus scan. Another thing you can do is to run a check disk repair. Here are the instructions on how to perform a check disk repair on your computer: Check your hard disk for errors

Hope everything works out well for you.

My total physical memory (64.00MB) is less than my available physical memory (126.73MB).

That's what System Information is telling me. What gives? "Total" should be more than "available."

I've an old Dell running WinXP which I only use for wordprocessing and email.

A:Total physical memory LESS THAN available physical memory?

Total physical memory is the amount of RAM you have. (64 mb)

Windows xp automatically uses hard drive memory as if it is RAM if necessary. This is called virtual memory.

Sooo...you have 64 mb of ram, and an additional 64 mb of "virtual" ram from your hard drive.
There is nothing wrong...this is simply how windows xp works.

I can only run it now on safe mode and it looks like its a memory problem. The task manager shows 0 Free physical memory although barely any programs are running. Here are some screenshots to show in more detail. I'm not sure what to do, I've run Malwarebytes and removed all the objects that it detected but it hasn't salved the problem. I am thinking of reinstalling windows but I've read in other similar posts that didn't help.

A:Windows barely runs, 0 free physical memory problem

Memory is not your problem as you can see right at the bottom in the status bar it says "Physical Memory: 18% to 22%" that implies your memory is not even half used. The "Free" status is nothing but zeroed memory, it means nothing. "Available" is the important item you should be looking at. In either case Memory is not the cause of your problem.

I noticed that if I leave my PC on for a long time, and even if I don't open any application, that the RAM (Physical Memory) Usage, as reported by the "Performance" tab in Windows Task Manager, will increase as time progresses. I'm curious what will happen if I leave my PC turned on indefinitely without rebooting (several weeks, months), will the RAM usage eventually go to 100% or over, forcing windows to shut down? Is this a system design flaw inherent to Windows OS? Thanks.

A:Physical Memory Usage phenomenon, Windows design flaw?

What you're seeing is a "memory leak", an occurrence where a program claims more and more memory as it runs, but never releases it back to the OS. It's difficult to tell where it comes from, but have a look at the task manager, look for the memory usages of different programs and try to find one that increases memory consumption over time without going back.

But the problem itself may be located in a program you're running (even hidden), in a faulty driver, or even it may be a virus. I doubt that it's a problem with Windows itself, but it's not impossible of course. I leave my computer on for long periods (days, if not weeks) and never had a problem with RAM memory going short, and the few Windows-based servers that exist out there are in fact running always-on for years, with maybe a reboot once in a while, but generally no other problems.

As a routine, try a virus scan to see if you've got something nasty to discard the problem, or try safe mode and see if it repeats there.

Start ruling things out. Is there another computer you could try the disk on? If it works then, you have eliminated the disk as a possible problem. Keep eliminating things it could be and that will lead you to what is causing the problem. Hope this helps.

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

I have moved your post to it`s own thread. This will save any confusion.

I find multiple culprits in your minidumps.

You are running two antivirus programmes. AVG and Symantec/Norton. This is not a good idea, because it can cause conflicts. You should uninstall Symantec/Norton and see if your computer becomes more stable.

I also find the the footprint of Zonealarm. Again, this may be a conflict with Symantec/Norton.


If after uninstalling your Symantec/Norton security product you still have problems, please attach more minidumps.

As for your ram errors on test 8 with both sticks, this might be caused by a ram incompatibility issue, or possible a ram timing issue.

Make sure your ram isn`t overclocked in any way.

Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

my laptop uses alot of memory. around 50%. how can i lessen the big usage? i have 2gig ram.

A:My laptop uses a big part of my Memory (physical memory)

This is normal for windows 7, it uses the memory in order to prevent un needed read/writes from the drive. This is actually something you want with a laptop because unless you have a solid state drive, laptop drives are traditionally very slow.

I don't understand why people get so upset when their memory is actually being used, that's what it is there for.
If you open a large program that requires more resources windows will unload nonessential processes from memory to the pagefile while that program is active.

Windows 7 is much better at managing memory than it's predecessors.
1 gig of used ram is pretty much expected.
This is why 1 gig is the minimum required per microsoft's specifications.

Sir
I do have a question?

We have a space in harddisk ,called virtual memory.  In addition to DRAM ,Operating System  uses this  virtual memory to store and run applications. Virtual memory makes up for the need of space required.

I think that the physical memory DRAM is not needed. Virtual memory inside the hard disk is  sufficient. 

By avoiding DRAM we  can save the cost of  physical DRAM. We can also save lot of time that is involved in associating the pages between DRAM and Virtual memory.

Of course , virtual memory provided by the hard disk is slow. But  in current trends we can research , to increase the speed of magnetic drums being used by the harddisk to store data. 

Thanks ,
Ramkumar.

If I choose to rais the amount of virtual memory the system uses does this meen that the computer will not show as much Physical Memory or not be able to utalize it?
 

A:Virtual Memory And Physical Memory

Virtual memory is actually not memory. It is simulated memory area on the HDD. When you are using a lot of virtual memory, your system will actually run slower. HDD access is considerably slower than RAM access. The OS will page memory out to the HDD to make more physical memory available to itself or applications, as needed.

I can tell you what is probably causing your problems. AVG.
When you are looking at memory, do not sort by Working set, sort by Hard faults.
Hard faults is what causes things to slow down. Plus you have plenty of memory not to worry about usage.

How do I go from there? Thanks a lot ppl...I really need it...
 

A:How do I get rid of physical memory..

That is what we refer to as a BSOD(Blue screen of Death) The cause could be one of many. If you care to wait it out, your machine should eventually reboot after dumping the contents of RAM to a file(hense the message about memory dump)
Many times you might get one of these and not see another for many months, other times you may get one that is related to a problem with a new piece of software or a device driver and will keep coming up till you remove the program or update/rollback the driver. They can also be related to pieces of hardware conflicting with eachother, missing or corrupt files, virus infections, and just about anything else you can imagine.
More info on the exact error message might be helpful in determining the cause of your BSOD. Also, any recent changes to the system(software and/or hardware) would be very helpful.

Why usage of the physical memory doubles to 2 GB when the machine is idle and after msconfig has been cleaned? Thanks

A:physical memory

'Cause it is Vista which has known memory management issues. Killing the startup processes in msconfig does not even begin to stop all the junk Vista is doing behind the scenes. Defragging, indexing, etc.  If you install all the Vista Service Packs and perform these tweaks: http://www.pctuneuptips.com/tips/vista_tweaks/ You can almost make Vista as clean and stable as Windows 7.

Hello guys,

I installed a Windows XP x86 on my PC. But when I open the system information window in the System Summary tab, in the right-hand pane and at bottom the following are written:

Total Physical memory 768.00 MB Available Physical memory 270.41 MB !!

Why Available Physical memory is 270.41 MB please?

PS: My system is very slow and also very slower when start up. Isn't that less Available Physical memory the source of that slowness?

A:Available physical memory

every program and process uses RAM theres thousands of back ground tasks going on which will all take tiny amount away. which is why you dont have much avaliable.

the fact that your system is slow is because you have such a low amount of ram in the first place. even back in 2001 1gb was the minimum most people had.

nower days 4gb+ is considered the minimum and 8gb+ is recommended for most users other than web browsers and email users.

basically more ram is your friend. its cheap and cheerful these days and an easy thing to upgrade.

I have a laptop that says It has a 4GB RAM. But when I check the specs out it says 3GB Physical memory only. What does it mean? I'm concerned about this because I'm trying to use Autocad Civil 3D which requires 4GB RAM. But it keeps hanging up, so I'm guessing this is due to that "3GB Physical memory" note. So I'm planning to use Civil 3d 2009 which requires 3GB RAM. But in the system requirements provided by Autodesk for Civil 3D 2009, it says to use the 3GB switch for 32-bit OS's. What does that mean? By the way I'm using windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit.

A:Physical Memory?

A 32-bit operating system can only access 4GB worth of address space. Into that, we need to factor in I/O devices and any other hardware. The result is that actual physical memory that can be used will range from 2.75GB to 3.25GB, dependant on the hardware.

A:Available physical memory, XP

You have only 1Gb of ram installed on the motherboard and XP is using 768Mb which isn't leaving much over. You need to install more ram. It depends on what you are using the computer for but I'd say you want at least 2Gb ram.

Your PC has a serious corruption of the Operating System it would seem.

You don't mention what the OS is, but generically speaking for NT/2K/XP you should put the OS CD in the drive and reboot.

It should boot from the CD, where you should get an option of "repair"

When I go to the System Configuration drop down on my computer with Win XP, I notice that I have a total physical memory of 512MB. However, the next line tells me that I have only 112.7MB of memory available. So what gives? Is there an adjustment that I need to make to gain more use of my 512MB of installed memory that I have?

A:Physical Memory

Hi RADSHOPBOB and welcome to TSF !

Are these the figures you got from the performances tab in the task manager (press ctrl+alt+del) ? If so it only means that Windows XP and your other running programs are currently using 400 MB of your RAM and that 112 MB remain unused. It's not unusual for XP to use as much as 300-400 MB on its own and there's no point in trying to have the maximum of free memory.

Though 512 MB or RAM is considered a minimum for XP so if you hear the hard drive working constantly or if you see that the peak value is always higher than 512 MB under comit charge in the task manager (still in the performances tab) then it means that your applications would probably work faster if you added some more RAM.

Hi, not sure if this was the correct place to put it.

Anyway, I go into Taskmanager and I see three numbers that represent the following:

1. Processes
2. CPU Usage
3. Physical Memory

Now, I understand what the first two are, but what does Physical Memory mean?

On a side not, I also was experiencing crashes with Oblivion after the CPU usage shot to 50%+ for no apparent reason.

The task manager may not give accurate total readings.
If you want to verify what shows as installed and what is being shared by your video card download Everest Home Edition V1.51 from oldversion.com
(you will find it in the utilities section. V1.51 is the last freeware version of Everest that has a software module which is very helpful, so get that and not later versions.

By the way, running XP on a computer without SP2 opens your computer to myriads of unpatched exploits. SP2 is primarily a security update and is critical for you to have installed.

Microsoft no longer supports computers running anything below SP2 so the absence of it means you also do not have subsequent critical updates.

I'll tell you one thing: I wouldn't want my email address to be in that computer!

Why is Win7 using 50% to 60% of the physical memory when I'm just surfing around? Sometimes it's that high when the pc is at idle. AVG and a spyware program are running in the background.

A:Physical memory

where do you think the OS actually works from?

it works from memory. you don't state how much ram you have but your stat looks pretty normal to me

you do understand that as far as windows is concerned you will never run out of memory.

Out of curiosity, how much available Physical Memory do you have?

I have approximately 1804.

A:Available Physical Memory

Depends on the time of day and what is currently running. Btw: there is a better way of looking at it in Resource Monitor (click the button on the bottom of the Taskmanager Window you show and go to the memory tab).

A:Available Physical Memory

George,

You seem to have overlooked the Key Operative Word (KOW) !!!

"AVAILABLE"

Those values you are quoting represent the amount of Physical memory not currently being used. That value will generally be changing constantly as the computer runs.

In most cases the best thing that M$ could do is to put those screens under Lock n Key!

Guys, I'm running a Win7 pc with Intel E7500 2.93GHz and 1024MB memory..
From last two days am getting slow processing speed, and today when I checked the memory utilization in taskmanager its more than 60% of memory is utilized even at idle state.

Is that normal or some problem is there in system?
I have attached this screenshot of taskmngr.
Thanks!

Hey Every1,
I would really appreciate anyone who could help me on this.

I have a laptop 'ASUS A9RP series' which runs windows xp, which says it has 384 megabytes of RAM-, Physical Address Extension'. I recently purchased a program which i loaded onto my Laptop but i cannot run it because when i go to it says i need 500 megabytes of Physical memory!

So no matter what i try or do i cant run this Program. I was wondering if there is anything internally on my laptop i could do, or if there was anything i could purchase or download to increase my physical memory to its required level?

Apreciate any help from Any1!!!.

Hello, I am looking for some advice on physical memory. My new laptop (inspiron 640m) takes a while to boot and programs are also slow loading. I have 1 gig of RAM and task manager shows :

CPU usage 4%
Memory 823mb
Physical memory 80%

Do this look ok or is there something I could do to change the performance.

Hello

I run on 7 home premium 64bit 6gb ram and lately, my physical memory usage has skyrocketed to 99% for an unknown reason and my laptop is now unbelievably slow... It started out about a week ago and I haven't changed anything in my computer for this to happen(at least not that I can think of). I tried to find the answer on the net, but nothing. I ran a full scan with Kaspersky internet security 2011, malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Ccleaner, speedupmyPC, but apart from cookies and temporary internet files, nothing was wrong. Tried to kill a few processes here and there but before I break anything I want to have a second opinion Here are some screenshots of ressource monitor and process exp.

Thanks for your help

Jonathan

p.s. sorry for that french writing if you need me to translate anything just ask

A:99% physical memory 6GB ram help!

Can you please run task manager and select the processes tab ( Right click Windows Task Bar>Select "Start Task Manager" ), expand it fully to include system tasks, and stretch it to reveal everything, hopefully it will all fit, and take a screenshot and reply here. If you can please arrange the task manager by memory usage.

It's probably not necessary I already suspect a serious memory leak that isn't being shown, but just to be sure.

My computer has been running slower and seems that programs seem to crash a lot. I get the error message that the program is shutting down and always click "don't send" and start it back up. I looked at my system information today and it says "physical memory 256 m....available memory 39.47 m" this is with nothing but Windows XP running. Virtual Memory is 770.48 with 409.94 available. Is this a/my problem?

Hi Guys,

I have recently bought an Acer timeline 3820T with i3-350M, 2.26GHz, 2 GB Ram running on Windows 7 Home Premium.

I realised that when I boot my laptop and without any application running, the task manager shows 78 Processes and Physical memory is at 50% usage.

Just like to check if it deems normal for the physical memory to be at 50%. While my windows xp pro laptop memory is at around 30% with only 1 GB Ram.

Thanks.

A:Physical Memory at 50%

Windows 7 does use more RAM. Not to mention when you first log in, the computer is still starting various services and programs. Are you using 32-bit or 64-bit. It sounds about right for 64-bit to me.

The system crash at July were related to zonealarm. you did not re-install zonealarm when you re-build windows. The problem occurs recently is related hardware. Most probably it is bad ram. One of the your minidumps crash with at ntfs. It may be related to bad file pointer. Run chkdsk /r. If it still crashes, replace the ram. However your windows only crashes two times at Aug . If I were you, I would tolerate the BSOD.

Several times a day my computer jumps to a blue screen and says it is dumping the physical memory and counts from 1 to 100 and reboots. Just aggravates me to death. I am a senior citizen and not too swift on the computer operation, but I try. Elementary help would be greately appreciated. Thanks, Jim

I am currently working on a Win2k.
The computer boots into the Windows OS, then the icons start popping up on the desktop.

Then i get a blue screen that comes up with a message similar to this:

"Physical memory dump beginning." Followed by an error code.

This happened 3 times in a row, then the computer was just shut off, then the next day when it was turned on - it worked fine and is currently working good.

However I want to know WHAT caused this and what to do next time this occurs. I would just like to understand whats going on when this situation arises.

Thanks guys.

Hello,

I uploaded a copy of event viewer errors that are happening on this PC. Windows pro XP. Dell Dimension. I have had this issue for a while, and I am not sure what else to do or how it started. It is intermitting though. Sometimes works and sometimes not?? When writing PICS, or copying movies, my system goes to bluescreen. Several errors have occured. 0x0000008E, 0xC0000005, 0x806E694F, 0x985E4ED4, 0x00000000m, 0x00008086. These are random errors and do not always discply together when the physical memory dump begins. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

IMO...the best approach would be to try to see if any clues are in the .dmp files on your system.
