  • 1. Reboot after Win98 boot menu
    Hi One of my users has a machine with 2 hardware profiles on his Win98 laptop. When he selects a hardware profile it just reboots and takes him back to the boot menu. I have booted the machine in to Safe Mode and tried copying one of the profiles to a new one, then rebooting the new profile, but the same thing happened. Back in to safe mode, and I exported then deleted HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Config to try and remove all of the profiles, thinking that it would then recreate a brand new one. However, upon reboot after removing these the same entries are still in the boot menu, and when one is selected the same thing happens. Boot in to Safe Mode again, and I though perhaps I need to remove the entries from the boot menu in case they are trying to start hardware profiles which no longer exist, however I can't find a boot.ini?!?! Any ideas? This has got me stumped! Thanks Mark

  • 3. OpenSCManager failed error
    Last night I went to log on to my home machine (Win98) and was presented with this error: OpenSCManager failed error LastDIError=120. By killing a running process called RunOnce, I could finally get to my desktop. Hmm, spyware or virus, no doubt. Antivirus is up to date, but let's run it anyway. Sure enough, picked up 5 infected files, but the infected files were either healed, or were junk in the TEMP folder. Cleaned everything, ran Spybot & Ad-Aware, and rebooted. Still got the error! I've done a bit of searching and not come up with any good answers. I suspect one of the virus gremlins did something, but that's just a guess. Any thoughts? WT
  • 4. Media Player & MP
    I'm trying to rip a CD to an MP3 format without the annoying 2-second gap between tracks. I'm using Media Player 10 under XP Pro. Can I do this with MP10 or do I need other software?
  • 5. Layering Data
    While reading up on how to wipe a hard drive clean, I read the following quote regarding the process: "it's like a pencil mark on a wall that you cover with a coat of paint. You can still see the mark, so you cover it with another layer of paint and it's obscured some more. That process is called wiping, shredding or file wiping. In fact, it's adding layers of data on top of other data." Why is this? A byte can only hold one value at a time? How could you "layer" data on top of data? Thanks, Dave

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?
