  • 1. Formatting a large drive as FAT32
    Hi, I recently got a new 80gb hard drive, and I am trying to format it fat32. I know fat32 is *supposed* to only be for drives 32gb and under (I think), but I have another 80gb and I somehow forced it to format fat32, and no problems at all. The only problem is that when I formatted the first 80gb, it was under linux using some graphical drive tool. Right now, I don't have linux installed anymore, and I was wondering if there was a way to do it in windows. When I tried the normal way of formatting drives (administration tools, computer management, drive management), it said the drive was too big. Also, I want this drive to be fat32 because I also run FreeBSD on my computer and want it to be able to access the drive. I am running Windows2000 and FreeBSD. Thanks ahead of time, Mitty :) ps. Sorry if this is in the wrong group, I couldn't really find anything else.
  • 2. Problem with inverted commas and the @ symbol.
    Ok, I apologise in advance for asking probably the most stupid and dumb-ass question possible. I also apologise for asking a question which I imagine has been asked for the last five years repeatedly on usenet, but if it has, then after fifteen minutes trawling I haven't found it. Which I guess means I'm just stupid. Pretty simple. Whenever I want to type this: - @ I get this : - " and visa versa. So to get this - @ - I'm doing shift + 2, and for this - " - it's shift + '. which makes no sense. How do I swap these around back to the way they ought to be??! Thank you.
  • 3. Spurious right button clicks/context menu
    Hope someone can help with this frustrating windows problem. On my father's laptop, he sporadically gets spurious context menu popups, as if he had pressed the right mouse button even though he has not. Sometimes all is fine for days, and then it happens only a few times, but sometimes it happens every 5 seconds for 30 minutes before going away, making the machine temporarily unusable. We've tried the following, all with no effect: 1. Upgrade to Windows XP SP2 (to fix other gremlins) 2. Thorough virus and spyware check, in case of hijacks 3. Disabling click zones and the right button itself on the touchpad (Synaptics), in case it was a physical button problem. He sees it mainly in MS Word, but since that is really all he uses that does not say much. Machine is a Dell Inspiron 2600 notebook, about 2 years old. Any suggestions? Thanks, Martin

Error Message: "Program too big to fit in memory"

I am running Windows XP at home and have Office XP installed.  The
problem is that I need to use equation editor and it is not displayed,
but I found a fix.  The problem is that when I try to run setup.exe
from the command prompt off the CD, I get the error message referenced
above.  I have checked and there seems to be enough memory.  Also, I
having seen references to an old virus that gives the same message
(green joker), but my virus scan doesn't find any viruses.  Any
suggestions of what I should do.  I really need equation editor.

Thanks

Ok, I'm not exactly sure what the problem was but it works now.  For the
record, I restarted the computer, hit F8, and set it to boot for the 'last
known good configuration' and it worked.  Thanks anyways,

4.'program too big to fit in memory' error

Hi all,

I can't seem to figure this out.  There's a game I have on CD that I
installed perfectly on this computer (Windows XP Home) perhaps two or three
weeks ago.  Now when I try to run the setup file (same CD) I get the error
message, "program too big to fit in memory" in a console window.  Then it
closes.  I checked out Google and the groups already but no-one ever gave an
actual answer as to what the problem might be.  My specs are as follows:

Windows XP Home (with Service Pack 1)
512 MB DDR RAM
Pentium 2.4 GHZ
80GB Hard Drive (13 gigs free)

I don't understand it.  The CD works fine on another XP machine, but this
one I get that error message.  I can't recall installing or doing anything
major to this PC since it worked last  Does anyone have ANY suggestions?
Thanks,

    Matt


5.MS-DOS error: Program too big to fit in memory

When I try to open practicaly ANY program, the black MS-
DOS window open and in a blink before its close I can 
see:Program too big to fit memory. No program will start. 
I havent changed ANY settings recently. I tryed to fix it 
by maxing the parameters in Properties of programs, and of 
cmd.exe. Nothings work.

I deinstalled Windows XP, reinstalled it, its the same. 
Its the first time this ever happen to me...

Anybody know on what MS-DOS actually rely on? If I format 
my computer, will it be fixed?
