  • 2. Windows Won't Install Updates!
    In Windows 98 the Windows Update originally allowed me to install the critical updates, but now when I try to install non-critical updades when I click on ADD the "total items selected" remains at Zero, so when I click review and install nothing happens. BTW I reinstalled IE 6 and now there two critical updates to install and when I click on "review and install" nothing happens. What's wrong? Thanks, SJH
  • 3. Explorer and main toolbar
    hello, I have a problem with my Explorer that doesn't display the main toolbar anymore. Only if I do not display the address bar, I can see the main toolbar, while if the address bar is displayed (and always is) I cannot see the other. Operating system is ME, but up to yesterday all was fine. Thanks and kind regards Fulvia
  • 4. Can you "Send to" via a web email program? Can you have multiple "Send to" options?
    I use both Lotus Notes and a Gmail account. In Windows, right-clicking on a file brings upa context box that allows you to send the file via an email program. Question 1) Is there any way to have the "Sent to" open my Gmail account and attach the file? Question 2) Is there any way to have multiple "Sent to" email programs available. Such as a menu item that lets me "Send to" via Notes and a menu button that lets me "Send to" via a web email account? Thanks.
  • 5. Screensaver not working
    Other than viruses, what kinds of things can cause a screensaver not to turn on? I bought a new PC (Windows XP) and sometimes the screensaver won't come on. I've set it to activate after only 2 minutes of inactivity. It seems that after I start or restart my PC, the screensaver turns on the first several or few times, but after a while, it seems to not come on more often that it does. Any help? Thanks.

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

Postby mrwawa » Thu, 25 Sep 2003 09:27:37 GMT

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?
