Have an HP PC1-1113w desktop that has now giving us low memory errors when scanning more than 2-3 pages. It has 6 GB total RAM on a 2GB card and a 4GB card. Through Windows 7 Task Manager usable RAM is showing around 800 Meg, even though available RAM is almost 4GB.
Got desperate for any solution, even simply tried swapping Memory cards in their slot locations. Actually worked for about 10 minutes and showed all the available RAM as being usable. Then, back to the BS it was doing earlier.
The HP branded BIOS is nearly useless for making real changes, and no chipset/RAM adjustments are even listed.
The scanner is a Canon MFP Imageclass unit. Could it's software be holding some memory hostage? If so, it's not obvious by examining Task manager performance and application screens.
This is a 64bit Windows 7 system.
Thanks in advance
