  1. I had this problem. Did you make sure you formatted your hard disk and THEN installed Win7? If you didnt, it just installed Win7 on the space you had available.

    To do this: put the DVD in your DVD ROM and restart, booting from the DVD. Select the hard disk you want to install to, click "more options" and select format. When it is done, THEN install Win7 (obviously make sure you back up important files).

    Hope this helps.
  2. I believe that to play ultimate gaming computer graphics like in the movies you will probably be required between 6-16 Gigabytes of Random Access Memory for 64-bit color technology.
  3. I believe that for 64-bit color technology would actually require between 3 & 8 Gigabytes of Random Access Memory.
