Question about Cars & Trucks

2 Answers

I just built a computer with 16Gb of DDR2 RAM. What OS should I put on this baby so that I can actually USE all 16GB of RAM? I was going to go with 2008 Server but someone told me Windows 7 would support it. Is that true?

    I use tons of graphic /publisher files, and I have to cut and paste constantly back and forth between several programs, sometimes having as many as 60 files open at the same time. My 4Gb system was slow once I past 35 or 40 files..Not horrible...monitor my memory constantly showed i was using close to 90% and i started getting disk cache to the hard drive. Simply figured 16Gb would give me much more memory access before cache to hard drive would begin to slow me down again.

    I'm curious what you think you're going to do with 16GB's of Ram! You won't even get close to using 4!

You've got to go with a 64 bit OS, NOT 32 bit.
While Vista will support it, I'd definitely go with Win7 Pro or Ultimate.
I'm using both now and love it!

  • Vista Home Premium 64-bit: 16 GB
  • Vista Business/Enterprise/Ultimate 64-bit: 128+ GB
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 16 GB
  • Windows 7 Professional 16 GB
  • Windows 7 Enterprise 192GB
  • Windows 7 Ultimate 192 GB

    Testimonial: "Adding the memory for each version of windows was a very nice touch! and most helpful. I was looking at 64bit windows 2008 server but rather go win7"

    Hi,

    Thanks for using Fixya.

    Wow, 16gigs of RAM... thats alot!
    Well, for you to be able to get full use of your 16gigs ram. You need to be using a 64BIT OS. Windows Vista and Windows 7 has 64bit versions. The main problem that you will encounter with using 64bit OS is driver compatibility with your devices. Hopefully all your components have 64bit drivers. I hope this helps.

    Thanks and have a nice day.

    Latest Questions
    Are flagship devices always the best mobiles in a brand's lineup?
    Flagship literally means the flag bearing device, meaning the cream of the lineup with best features available. However, that does not make it the best device in the entire lineup as a lot of factors come into play. While it may be the best performance wise, it may not make sense to many from value for moneyperspective. So, the best mobile in any brand's lineup will be the one that would perfectly meet your requirements, it may or may not be the flagship. But, if budget is not an issue and you're a big fan of a brand, you should go for its flagship. All said, flagships certainly push the time to replace your phone too far (if you're a ********* mobile user). But again, you need a phone, not a jet pack. As an average user, you need photos of your friends and family or record exciting moments of your life. An average smartphone camera is enough to handle that. Professional cameras are there to take care of the rest. The same applies to your other needs. Keep your data in the cloud, why you have to carry a 1 TB storage in your pocket all the time. You don't need iMAX, a Full HD screenis enough. The gap between mid-range and premium phones is reducing with time.
    Which is the best mobile for me?
    KillerFeatures is designed to help you find the best phone as per your budget. You can either use the Phone Finder tool to find your new phoneor simply search as per your budget from top search. On any search page, you can filter down the results by selecting your price range and features. Further, you can sort the results by key features like performance, camera, battery, screen, user ratings, RAM and more. Simply select the phone that suits your requirements. But make sure to check the reviews in detail as it gives first hand feedback of a phone.
    I want the best mobile in the market, how do I go about it?
    The starting point should be your budget. If budget is not an issue, you can opt for any of the best flagship mobile from premium brand like Samsung, Apple, Google, HTCor OnePlus. However, it's best to understand your preferences and select the handset that best matches your requirements. To start with, you have to decide how much are you willing to spend on a smartphone thus narrowing down the choices. Next step is to determine whether you will be using it just to be active on social media and light gaming or you will be doing almost everything on it with excessive multimedia and gaming. Having decided these two factors, you can see clearly what features you would want to have and zero in on a perfect device.
    I am a heavy user looking to buy a good performance mobile. Which features are must in a top mobile?
    Make sure to find answers to these before you decide: how long it can stay charged (battery), how long it takes to charge ( quick charging feature), which screen size is comfortable to use - whether I'm mostly a single hand user or use both hands (display size, high PPI), are movies on my mind (VR Compatibility), loves to shoot frequently (OIS, Selfie camera), good processing power for multitasking (2- 3GB RAM, Snapdragon SOC) and OS (Android / iOS).

    How to install baby seat in 1988 mazda 121 hatch


    Most vehicles built before around 1995 were not equipped with baby seat anchors as standard equipment.
    Baby seat anchors are also not something that is normally covered in service and repair information. You need to look in your Owner's Manual. If your Owner's manual does not show any baby seat anchors, then there are kits available at your local parts store or dealer to install some. There shouldn't be any need to "weld" anything.

    Is there wiring for the interior lights under the hood on a 1995 Dodge Ram? The interior lights don't work and the fuse is okay. My son put in a new steering column and the dash lights are not working.


    Not sure about the 95's, but on my 04 dodge ram the interior lights went out, and the dash lights, and I about pulled my hair out trying to figure it out. After a year of driving around in the dark I finally brought it to the dealership. It needs a whole new instrument panel. There is a module built into the instrument panel that controls the lights. When it goes bad you need to replac the whole damn thing. Heres the kicker, the mileage is also built into the instrument panel, so the dealer charges about a grand to get the part with the correct mileage and fix it. You can get one on ebay cheap, but its illegal to tamper with the mileage, which is also built into the trucks computer. Installing a new part will not sync the mileage. On the other hand, your is only a 95, you may be able to just replace the dimmer switch, I did that on a 94 hyndai excel and it worked. Hope this helps. If anything get a tough light and some duck tape.
