Helo i try to play a game and i get nmi memorry parity error blah blah, with a blue screen.


There are number of things that can cause an error like this. Faulty memory, a bad harddrive, a failing motherboard, or a corrupt OS.
If you get this error every time you power on your PC than follow the below steps
It probably meant the installation itself was corrupt, not the disk you were using.

To test your memory try Windows Memory Diagnostic Test
http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp

The Windows Memory Diagnostic tests the Random Access Memory (RAM) on your computer for errors. The diagnostic includes a comprehensive set of memory tests. If you are experiencing problems while running Windows, you can use the diagnostic to determine whether the problems are caused by failing hardware, such as RAM or the memory system of your motherboard. Windows Memory Diagnostic is designed to be easy and fast. On most configurations, you can download the diagnostic, read the documentation, run the test and complete the first test pass in less than 30 minutes.

Or you can try memtest

To test your hard drive for corrupt/bad sectors find the manufacturer of your hard drive and run their Hard Drive Diagnostics Utility.

This will give us a foundation to work on and will (should) eliminate two possible sources of your problem.

Want it 2 be main hard drive on desktop,


Hi,
There seems to be a misconception here. The virtual memory is a part on the Hard drive that your computer uses similar RAM. It only uses it once you have utilized most of your RAM so increasing it would not do much value at all. I suggest you upgrade the physical RAM sticks. (the memory physically attached to the motherboard of your computer). For your Seagate, it would be used just as a storage for data and not as memory. and since it is external, you could also not allocate some part of it to be used as virtual memory.
you could go to a computer store and ask them what memory (RAM stick) would be compatible for your computer if you want to do an upgrade. I'm sure you could also ask them to put it on for you to have the result or your desired amount of memory installed to your computer.
hope this helps.

HP Pavillion dv6700 - black screen


Do the following without the battery inserted.

Let the computer sit with no battery for 24 hours. Do not put the battery in at all. Try using your original memory stick ONLY, with no hard drive and see if it will POST. If it does, insert the hard drive and try again. Could be the new memory...

Another thing you can try is reseating the processor. Turn the ZIF screw, take the processor out (WATCH THE PINS!!) and put back in GENTLY. Leave the memory in the computer, hard drive removed, try to power on.

These models have been known for bad motherboards. Contact HP and arrange to send it in. If you do enough digging on HPs website, you'll find the service advisory.

Hi,

The inpage operation error actually refers to an error going between the drive and your RAM. Try the drive on a different computer, if it works the problem may be in your RAM, if it doesn't the drive is corrupted and can't be read under normal circumstances.

If it does work, let me know and I'll link you to a memory diagnostic program to test your RAM. If it doesn't work on the other computer, let me know your Country, State and City and I can refer you to a nearby Data Recovery team.

In this situation I would start by testing the hard drive then the RAM.
For the hard drive find out the manufacturers name and download their test program.
For the RAM test I have used a free program call memtest86 with very good results.
If the problem is the hard drive, you may be able to install a hard drive of the same size and using an imaging program copy the old drive to the new drive. Re-run the recovery program. My suspicions are that the old drive has developed bad clusters near the beginning where the operating system is and some of the files have become corrupt.
If the RAM fails the test replace the RAM and try again.

How much ram can i install on a hp compaq d220mt?


Laptop Computer Memory Desktop Computer Memory Printer Memory Memory Applications All data processing and execution takes place within the memory module(s). The program's directions are replicated into memory from a hard drive, external drive or from a network. The processor then extracts the directions from the memory and puts it into the circuit for analysis and execution.
Memory is so important that it cannot be wasted. RAM is allocated by the operating system and programs, and then released when not needed. Errant applications can grip RAM and not release it, which results in a diminishing amount of memory available as you load and use more programs.
If you could actually look into memory, you would be astonished. By watching how much and how quick data and commands are written in and out of it each day, you would realize it is a marvel that it works so we
