Sounds like a good plan.

That's exactly what I don't get. I mean, if one really needs a 32bits system (who knows), why then install 16GB of ram? Unless he already had a single 16GB stick. A 4GB stick would provide the maximum memory the system can handle.

@thiago.eec - if you read through the thread deback hinted that at the time he built his system he ran into a roadblock that 'forced' him down the 32bit narrow path.

I understand that he might need a 32bit system. I just said that if a person wants/needs a 32bit Windows, then this person could save a few bucks and use just a 4GB memory stick.

@deback, install Calibre 4.2 and then run in safe mode to see if it works. Maybe it's something you run.

The only problem I have is about once every month or so, the screen will freeze for a few seconds and will have yellow squiggly lines. The system will either restart itself or will recover within a few seconds. I haven't been able to find what causes this problem, but it might not have anything to do with the video card.

All I can tell you is this computer runs very well, is very fast, and the only problem I've had with Calibre is the slow File Preview window after I upgraded to 4.0 or later. This doesn't occur with 3.48. I don't believe the problem is with my video card or with the 32-bit OS. I believe it has something to do with the code in the software.

As I previously said, when I built this system, I used the Samsung Migration software to copy my original hard drive to the new Samsung SSD, so I did not install Windows after I built this system.

I had installed the 64-bit Windows a few months before I built this system, and after the installation, the OS was not working properly. After not being able to solve the problems I had after the 64-bit installation, I reinstalled the 32-bit Windows, and then the computer worked fine.

The bottom line is that this little problem I'm having with the slowness in the File Preview has nothing to do with running Windows 32-bit or with my video card. It has something to do with the code in version 4.0 and later. I'm perfectly fine with using version 3.48 from now on.

Try my safe mode suggestion just to rule out anything you run on start up.

She wasn't concerned with saving a few bucks when she bought the 16GB of RAM. She bought the 16GB of RAM for future use.

I'll try that, but first, I'll try it after closing out all programs that I have loaded at startup (after I install 4.2 again). If the problem still exists, then I'll try Safe Mode. Thanks.

Tests just done:

Closed out all programs that were open (at startup and after startup). Installed Calibre 4.2. First edit: Took 5 seconds for the File Viewer to be fully rendered. Subsequent edits: Took 3 seconds for the full rendering.

Booted in Safe Mode, with no networking: First edit: Took 5 seconds for the File Viewer to be fully rendered. Subsequent edits: Took 3 seconds for the full rendering.

Booted in Normal Mode: First edit: Took 5 seconds for the File Viewer to be fully rendered. Subsequent edits: Took 3 seconds for the full rendering.

Next step is to downgrade back to Calibre 3.48. First edit: Will take 0 seconds for the File Viewer to be fully rendered. Subsequent edits: Will take 0 seconds for the full rendering.

The performance you are seeing is actually quite good. And the next version of Calibre will be even faster. So don't give up on 4.2 just yet.

Thanks, but I have to give up on 4.2 now, because in the last week, it has crashed (editor window disappeared) two or three times while I was editing epub files. I've gotten in the habit of hitting either F4 or F9 to save the file after each edit or after every couple of edits, due to crashing problems I had months ago, so I usually don't lose much every time it crashes, but it's still very annoying when the window I'm working in disappears suddenly with no warning.

I have 3.48 installed now (which hasn't ever crashed at all that I can remember), and I'll just wait until more bugs have been fixed before I try it again. In 3.48, editing takes zero seconds for the rendering to be complete, and the text in the File Viewer window doesn't move at all after each edit. I prefer to use the no annoyances-no distractions-no crashes version of Calibre.
