  • 2. Can't change screen size; passwords disappeared
    When I started up my PC today, my Wallpaper had disappeared and all the icons were so huge that they wouldn't all fit on the screen. (I can't scroll right to access the ones that are missing.) I went into Control Panel/Display to change the screen area, but when I restarted the computer the display was exactly the same (640x480; 16 colours). Two other strange things have happened simultaneously -- I don't know if they're related: 1. When I log in, after entering my name & password, I get a message saying "Set Windows password. Please confirm the password you entered. This will be used as your Windows password." 2. When I try to connect to the internet, my dial-up password is no longer saved and I have to re-enter it. I check the 'save password' and 'connect automatically' boxes every time, but whenever I try to connect again, the password has disappeared and I have to re-enter it. I have run a full Norton AntiVirus scan. Any thoughts much appreciated. PH

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?
