Could I be fighting a "To much memory" problem?

I've been running my P5W DH Deluxe with 4 gig of ram for the last year and I
have been running into some strange problems that I think may well be a
conflict with the excessive ram I have installed on my mobo running XP
(32bit). Such as:

1) When I want to start my Hauppauge HVR-1800 tuner on my secondary monitor
I get a memory access error and the program errors out. It starts fine on
the primary monitor. I can drag the open window over to the secondary
monitor with no problem at all. But I must drag it back to the primary when
I exit the program or the next time I start the program it will error out on
the secondary monitor again.

2) I just upgraded my dual-monitor setup (Analogue VGA) with two Samsung
T220's (Digital) and when I move the MagicTune Premium program from the
primary monitor to the secondary monitor the program errors out with a
memory access error.

I have a feeling that the problem is the set-aside memory used for
exchanging data between the cpu and gpu in upper memory is conflicting with
the installed excess ram. I also believe this problem is due to sloppy
programming or resource calls to said memory that is causing the problem.

Does anyone have any ideas on this? Am I crazy or sound on this idea?

Help

What happens when you lower RAM to 2 GB?
I assume you have tried this.
