I'm unable to load more than 44% memory with Giga3. Get the BSOD with the EW.SYS file. Was looking in Task Manager when loading samples and it occurs when 1 GB of memory is used. This has happened multiple times at this point. I'm using Windows XP SP1 with MIDIoverLan as the only other app installed and running.
I've also received the same BSOD (EW.SYS) with only 10-20% memory filled only playing one instrument at a time with and without GigaPulse loaded. I'll be playing a sound and boom, blue screen. These are with the Vienna sounds which are quite small and undemanding. I have yet to try Giga with a full sequence as I can't get the thing to run for more than a half hour before getting blue screens.
Here's a rundown of system:
P4 2.8c CPU
ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard
2 GB DDR 3200 RAM (Kingmax - all matched CS 2.5)
ATI Rage Pro PCI video card (latest drivers)
80 GB Maxtor EIDE drive - program drive
200 GB Seagate SATA drive - sample drive
Echo Darla 24 Soundcard
I've run system test, memory tests and stress tests on the system with no errors. The stress test used all 2 GB of memory with 100% CPU utilization overnight with no errors or overheating. So the hardware doesn't appear to be the issue.
No other tweaking has been done on the system except basic XP tweaking for performance. No memory tweaks have been done.
Anyone else having issues loading more than 1 GB? I've seen a couple other posts here with issues loading more than 1 GB and getting BSOD's but no particulars on what file was crashing.
