  • 2. Windows 2000 over WinME install?
    Greetings, I have a computer which has Windows ME currently installed on it. I have a license of Windows 2000 sitting around doing nothing, and I'd like to install the Win2k over ontop of the WinME. Will I have to wipe out the WinME completely and start from scratch on the Win2k install, or can I safely install the Win2k over the top of WinME? Thanks in advance, -Geoff

  • 4. Windows closing to desktop ?help!
    When I am browsing folders, occasionally they all unexpectedly close and reverts back to the desktop! To give more detail this only happens rarely to random folders, but last night it happened to the same folder (containing 20ish JPGs) five times in a row. Each time I double click on the folder to open it, all the open windows close down (but not applications), windowsXP sends an error report to Microsoft, and reverts back to the desktop. Any open applications and internet windows remain unaffected and the PC still functions normally afterwards. However, the same problem happened within Dreamweaver software when I was browsing for images to place, which closed down Dreamweaver with no Error message whatsoever and lost all my work. The problem only happens rarely and Id say the PC is 90% functional. I have run Spybot, Hijack This, Adaware, Norton Antivirus, and apparently have a clean system. My system is: Win XP Pro, Service pack 1 with all updates. (I did install SP2 last year, but uninstalled it shortly afterwards because this problem started occurring and I thought SP2 was the cause of the problem apparently it wasn't. I am really stuck and annoyed because I cant find any solutions! Any suggestions welcome, please!! BENJ

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?
