if you are running a lot of ram the first thing I would suggest is to up the ram voltage a bit and see if that will give you the stability

Hi there! Are you sure you have 9GB of physical RAM? Check if your RAM modules are properly seated on the motherboard. Have you checked the computer for malware,spyware or viruses? When was the last time you did a scandisk or a defrag?

According to this page http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5NE_... your motherboard only supports a maximum of 8GB of RAM. the fact that it only shows 6 and it crashes all the time is an indication that you may have bad RAM or a bad RAM slot. Download a RAM test-memtest86 or Windows Memory Diagnostic, or the Ultimate Boot CD, and test your RAM individually. If you don't find any bad RAM, repeat the test in each RAM slot on the board and see if you find a bad slot.

Windows is reporting the correct amount of RAM=6g. It reports only what is installed in the ram slots. It does not include video RAM in that amount shown. You might start by setting all bios values to default. Is the ram all the exact same brand and model number. What is the brand, size and model number of your RAM? You may have to set the timings in the bios manually. What size and brad is your power supply? What type of crashes are you getting BSOG, shut downs or what? Did the problems just start or have they been ongoing? If they started recently, what changes were made to the system? Have you run and virus scans? Please provide these answers so we can figure out what is going on.

He has 6 gb ram, look at his dxdiag he posted. He must have been confusing virtual memory. If you get a bsod it says what caused it.

Yes that sounds about right. Win 7 will slow down some apparent actions on your PC. Take a look at this and try a few of the suggestions (http://www.computingunleashed.com/speed-up-windows-7-ul...). Changing the visual settings will help a lot; shutting of indexing also will give you a speed boost. As you know your system hardware is a few generations old. It will run Win7 with no problems but you will have better performance if you do not use some of the eye candy and "features" built into win7.
