  • 1. ZIP drive ejects 750MB disks
    Hi, list Can anyone tell me what's up with this? For several years, I've used 250MB disks to store files. Never had a problem. Well, stuff keeps piling up so, today, I came home with a new 750MB disk. But...my ZIP drive automatically ejects it! What's up with that? It acts like a baby that just got a spoonful of stewed prunes. Yuck! I'd appreciate anyone's advice. Mark Mark E.

  • 2. XP User Profiles - Weird
    Have set up a new profile for my son, but when he goes into settings, he cannot change the desktop picture. The list of available pix is there, and they appear in the preview screen but when he clicks OK his desktop remains a blue screen. My account is fine. Everytime I try to create a new account, same prob occurs. I wonder if there is something locking this in the default user profile. Have tried to look in Local settings etc, but when I click to view all/hidden files, the option defaults back to Hide hidden/system files. I wonder if someone has put something on my system to alter default User profile, and has banned me looking at hidden files so I can't easily delete this. Any ideas??

  • 4. replacing disc drive on IDE0
    Forgive me if I am asking a real dumb question, but how do I replace the IDE0 drive (C) without reinstalling the whole damn lot again. I have two copies of WinXP installed - on two different drives, and can boot from both. I want to replace the IDE0 drive. How can I copy the IDE0 onto the other drive and copy back. DO I need Norton Ghost ? Thanks Colin Jones
  • 5. Problems with Windows 98 startup disk
    I have had a problem getting my computer to boot because of the antivirus software that I have loaded on my computer. I was told by a technician that I need to run a Windows Startup disk. But the problem is, I can't access windows 98 to create a startup disk. So, I used my XP computer to create a startup disk and now it will run my MSDOS prompt when I have the disk in. The problem is, I still can't get windows to start. I was given the information on what to do to recopy the msdos.sys file. But when I got to windows/commands and type attrib c:\msdos.sys -s -r -h, it says that it is not the correct msdos version?? Does this mean that I should only create a startup disk with a windows 98 computer? If so, is there I way that I can create on online without going into Windows 98? (Obviously I can't right now) I have a windows XP cd that has an ISO image on it to run. It will run nicely on my XP computer but will not boot with my windows 98 computer, it seems as though the cd drive can't read it. I would much rather just upgrade from boot to windows xp. Anyways. I would like to just access windows 98 for starters, if anyone has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it!!!! Thanks!

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?
