    Now none of my 26 scheduled tasks will run in Win2000. Not a single one of them even after deleting/recreating them using AT commands. HELP! No errors, no messages in event log, they literally do not run; I can't even manually run them! HELP! Phil
  • 2. Data Transfer to New PC
    Can anyone suggest the easiest way to transfer files from an old PC to a new one? Although the new PC has a much larger HD (120G compared to 15G), I would like to transfer everything the way it is on my old PC. I would like to install the same OS, and simply transfer everything from the old PC - via a cable connection if possible. I considered yanking the old HD and making it a slave HD in the new machine, but would prefer to simply transfer, if possible. Thanks, P. Watkins
  • 3. Win2k Virtual Memory resets itself
    I keep getting an Application Popup: Windows - Virtual Memory Minimum Too Low : Windows will now increase your VM paging file size. The system is running Win2k SP3 with 384Mb of RAM. The Initial size is set at 573 and the Max is 896. I have tried to set it to Init of 768 and Max of 1000. However, when I recheck the settings after the system has rebooted, the settings are back to 573 and 896. What do I have to do to keep the settings where I set them and why does the system keep getting the low VM warnings anyway? Steve

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?
