  • 1. Printer port LPT1 not working
    I have tried various printers/cables and apropriate drivers, now cleared off, printing produced nothing from the printer. Wondering whether the port was at fault I went to Dos C:\>DEBUG-D40:00 which showed the line 0040:000 F803(com1) F802(com2) E803(com3) E802(com4) BC03(LPT1) 7803 7802 Co9f. Does the BC03 indicate any problem

    Hi all, Does anyone know how to list/capture printer information in batch mode instead of clicking the printer properties one-by-one ? The machine is running Win2000 as the OS and there are more than 100 printers installed/defined. Thanks a lot, Ambrose
  • 3. Help- have security settings problems printing with XP
    Many times when my wife is printing a webpage, it won't print because a modal dialog has popped up- but she doesn't notice it because for some reason, it doesn't have the focus and its not in the foreground. This is the message: spoolsv is attempting to change or view this computer's internet protection settings It has a check box "Don't show this message again"- however, checking it does not prevent it for long. Please help get rid of this- She always forgets to look for the dialog box and thinks the printer is broken- Thanks, Steve V.

  • 5. Cursor doesn't move beyond right 25% of screen; why?
    Hi, folks. I've got a weird symptom: The cursor on my daughter's computer (which uses Windows XP, Home edition) won't move beyond the right 25 percent of the monitor screen. It's as if there was a vertical line up and down the screen that it can't cross. I can't even get to the start key. Anyone ever experienced this? Solutions? Mark

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?
