The memory diagnostic tool is built into Windows (at least from Vista and later versions). Thus the usual way to run the diagnostic, if Windows has loaded, is to search for mdsched.exe (Click on the Start button in Vista and Windows 7 or type memory from the Start Screen on Win8). Otherwise get a Windows install (or upgrade) disc or your system repair disc, boot to the CD/DVD (or tap F8 between the BIOS POST and the OS loading on some machines with Windows Recovery pre-installed) and go to the Repair your Computer option. View Advanced Options (after the initial recovery attempt fails) and choose the Windows Memory DiagnosticTool. If you don't have a system install or repair disc, try to find someone who does. (Windows User Group members often have these discs.) Otherwise, try a different memory test that can be used as a LiveCD. MemTest86+ is a useful tool: http://www.memtest.org/ . I hope this helps.

I'm using a vista premium SP 1.. So I did got the above errors.
What i did was, explore the disc-->right click setup.exe and click properties--> compatibility tab--> select run for win xp 2 and under admin.
Then when I installed I choosed a MINIMAL install option. If you the the above step yet choose full the error comes up.
Should work :))
Its annoying to insert disc everytime when you wanna play because of the minimal installation option but i figured to 'burn' and .iso image to my hard disk and use a cd/dvd image mounting tool. This part is purely optional tho:P
Download "Hiren's Boot cd".Burn the ISO images in a disc.Set your BIOS to boot using that disc.Select Mini windows XP.There you can have all the repairs tools pre-loaded.If none of the tools able to fix then you can always backup your important files and doa new re-installed.
Here is the link of lastest Hiren's Boot cd http://d2.hirensbootcd.net/Hirens.BootCD.10.1.zip
You try to remove all the program during startup using that disk with "msconfig" command.
Solution to get GPS Navman N40I working with Windows Vista. I solver the problem (most of it) by uninstalling the old activsynk witch was delivered with the manufactory CD. Then I downloaded from “http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/device-center.mspx” Windows Mobile Device Center. After installing this software I connected my Navman N40I to my PC and waited to for the Mobile Device Center application to load. When it tried to gain partnership with my GPS I removed it. Voila, and the SmartST Desktop 2006 SE application was able to communicate with my GPS. Hope this will help you! Kind regards Mega A
I just had same problem while trying to load 2008 maps onto N40i . This I unfortunately discovered once I had already removed the existing maps as instructed part of install.
SmartST2006 isn't so smart! It kept saying I wasn't connected to internet when it was registering my product key' despite it most definitely being connected and I had temporarily disabled my AVG firewall just in case it was blocking.
I found an alternative way of registering the maps on the Navman website where it is required to enter the Navman serial number and the maps product key in order to get a code but that didn't work for me either, it didn't recognise my Navman serial despite having been fully registered when new.
My final (desperate) solution worked - find a computer with Win XP install SmartST2006 and hey presto! It took quite a while to load the maps though.
Proof to me that SmartST2006 is not compatible with Vista, if only they had put a slip in the maps box warning of this possibility.
The 'latest' pan Europe maps which are labeled 0408 actually appear to be 1106
Forgive me if you've tried this already, but the Navdesk options only seem to all appear when the unit is connected to the pc. (via USB) Without the unit connected you get about 4 options in the menu down the right side of the sceen. As for the traffic. I had the same problem and still have..! I only get traffic info about 10% of the time..I called navman support and they suggested i download the latest update. its on the navman web site. (about 145Mb). I haven't tried it as yet. I reckon it's either the reception or the unit is naff..
hope this helps..
Are you not able to run the activesync program despite the Vista warning? Did you try running it in compatibility mode? What happnes when you try to connect with sync center (what happens...any error messages)? Regarding the mobile device centre...did you check that McAffe and windows firewall is not blocking it from internet access?
