It is actually not the coding but mostly configuration question. I have :

  • Windows 7 x64
  • ASUS P5KC motherboard
  • Intel Core Quad Q6600
  • GeForce 6800 GT
  • RAM 4GB (then 8 GB - when i added 4 GB more even memory remapping does not help)

Previously i had 2 slots of RAM memory by 1GB and all worked fine but then i replaced them with only one slot of memory of volume 4GB and now each time i started file upload using Java servlet on any web page my computer hangs without any error / rebooting / record in Event log... For example this site causes hanging - when i try to upload something.

Temporarily i fixed this by disabling "Memory Remap" option in BIOS but this causes limitation of RAM memory to 3GB.

Java forums do not answer my question so i do not know what can be the reason of such behavior, maybe someone knows the answer which update / fix should be installed / done to fix mentioned issue?

Update 1:
Not only Java can cause hanging but FlyLinkDC++ client for local networks too. All memory test ran fine, without any error (Memtest86+, GoldMemory, PCDoctor and other run fine)...

Update 2:
Java servlet on any site forces my PC to hang, site like was taken just as an example ...

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Your computer hangs when you upload a file from your computer to some Java servlet in Russia? Do you really think that servlets have anything to do with this problem? If it's a hardware or windows configuration problem, Java has nothing to do with it, and you won't find any answer on Java forums. – user62916 Jan 1 '12 at 15:45
Turn memory remapping back on and boot with a memtest86+ CD. Let it run for a few hours. If you have any errors, it's a hardware or BIOS setttings issue. If you don't, it's most likely a software issue. Let's start by splitting the problem space in half. – David Schwartz Jan 1 '12 at 15:55
