AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH! (hair falling to ground)
Meh. I ran memtest+86, and everything was great. Spinrite doesn't do ntfs drives.
At this point I'm just venting, but I'm on the road driving around to find specified target stores to install signs on, using my trusty 29 with mapoint, and the damn thing won't let me do anything but turn on gps position with a 3mi zoom (I can pan, but that's it).
If I try to "find" an address, zoom out, zoom in, or turn on trail or auto center, it crashes. Hell, just sitting there tracking my movement it will pop up a little "out of memory" and "would you like to send an error report to m$" windows.
I've tried adjusting, turning off, and (returning) to automatic virtual memory.
I've tuned down services.msc, and msconfig startup items (both of which I"m pretty dern familiar with)
Cleaned the pc with ccleaner, glary, and even the built in drive cleanup.
I *am running a sata hitachi 160gb with an adapter, but that has been running awesome since I put it in. I even reseated the board and what not when I swapped all my accessories over to the MK2.
Streets and Trips had similar behavior in my MK1 after the wifi shield fell off. After the shield incident, S&T 2007 and wifi never worked right. So I swapped the HDD, bat, ram, dvd, and gps to this mk2, and now everything else is running great, except the constantly crashing Mapoint 2009 (newer version of S&T). I just new it had to be the wifi or ram, but it's a different wifi card and the ram just checked out! I'll try a different drive when I get home in a couple weeks. This is just bothering the shite out of me.
FWIW: MK2, customtoughbooks gps kit with ublox6, kingston 1gb ram, hitachi 160gb w/sata adapter, xp (from butchered mk3 oem disks), sp2, toshiba 8.5 BT driver (but only on when I fire it up), S&T 2009, xport, Office XP, Foobar 2000, CCleaner, Glary utilities, vistaswitcher, powermenu, soft right click, audacity, palemoon, and vlc.
Mind you, that this is all the same software that I have been running on my mk1 for 2 years, except MP2009 instead of S&T2007, and none of it had any problems until that damn rf shield fell off and rattled around in my mk1.
It's not often that I can't figure something out, and this is super frustrating.
Thank you, again!
