I'm afraid not. You need to be running the 64bit version. 3GB is all you can cram in using the 32bit version...

Hmm.... from the error messages supplied (thankyou by the way) it might be worth checking your chipset/motherboard drivers are up to date..
Do you know the make and model of your motherboard?

not sure actually, would that be something that is stated in control panel systems ??

i hope this helps, if its no the correct information, plz let me know how i can get it, and i will supply it

Hi Kalestral,

if you check this page here:

Acer Europe - Service & Support, Drivers & Utilities, Downloads, Desktop, Acer Aspire M1640/M3640/M5640

You'll see various drop down menu's for drivers and bios. You need to update everything on the list for vista or vista SP1 depending on what your using.

If you need any more advice, please post back.....:)


I´m having the same problems with a blue screen appearing now and then. I´ve reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate X64 several times (after completely cleaning my HD). Two days after the last install, the blue screen appeared again (I installed the drivers from the asus disk (including asus update) and downloaded the driver for the graphical card from (version 197.45, 143.18MB), I also downloaded and installed AVG 9 free. I believe the blue screen appeared just after installing winzip x64 and trying to unpack some .rar files.
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
MB: Asus M4A87TD
memory: GeIL GV34GB1333C7DC (2x2GB) did memtest with both memories 'installed', this resulted in some errors appearing. Did memtest with each memory apart from each other and no errors appeared. Changed the memories from the light blue slots to the black slots.
graphical card: XFX GeForce GTS 250 1GB DDR3
HD: Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.C
Once the blue screen has appeared windows restarts and almost no program works normally (even internet explorer, mozilla, windows verkenner, etc. (sorry, can't come up with the translation))
Messages like this appear over and over again; this makes the PC unuseable (plain translation :p):
"Internet Eplorer doesn't work anymore.
You can search online for a solution."
option 1: "search online for a solution and close this program"
option 2: "close this program"

Thanks to anyone who can help me out with this problem(s)

Hey ff1904. Please try uninstalling AVG. In my experience, that is the number one cause of all bsod on Windows 7. More so of memory management errors. Please use the tool to remove it found here and then install MSE as a replacement and your machine should be well.

AV Uninstallers - Windows 7 Forums

TorrentG, thank you for the suggestion. I will try uninstalling AVG (do I first have to uninstall AVG by the 'normal' procedure and after that use the tool ?) and install MSE. I'll let you know what the results will be. BTW, I see a lot of BSOD-messages in combination with Win7 if I search for this on google, but I haven't found one general clear solution for the problem... Hope mine is fixed by uninstalling AVG :)

I would uninstall it normally then use the tool. I've never had AVG installed before, so I can't say for sure which is best. We will have further things that are close to guaranteeing that your machine will be bsod free. At this point though like I said, uninstall AVG and the please tell us how it's going. Based on your response, we will move forward or celebrate lol. :)
