This usually happens when the computer is running the Storport miniport driver and is using a controller that uses 32 bit DMA. The solution is to update the board to the latest BIOS.
This discussion reminded me of the advantages of installing a 64-bit version of Vista. Your system can make use of larger amounts of memory (see Microsoft KB article 929605) and generally perform faster.
Right now I use 32-bit Vista.on my notebook. Since my Centrino Duo processor is capable of running a 64-bit version of Vista, I have thought about making the switch. However, I have been chicken to switch my laptop to 64-bit Vista, because I have been afraid that some of my programs might not be compatible. Has anyone else made the switch? Did you have any compatibility problems with a favorite game or other application?
i did have a similar problem before and the quickest solution i found was to install it with just 2GB, run windows updates and then install the remaining memory.
Sorry I am new to this and didnt know where to post...
Somebody was telling me that if I have my processor a Core 2 Duo or a Core 2 Quad then I can install the 64-bit versions of windows...Is is true that all those processors coming under those two family handle 64 bit versions of OS no matter windows or Linux?
Please clarify or direct me somwhere...
