  • 1. Keyboard only works in admin mode? Help!
    I have a windows XP machine and the keyboard will not work unless I'm logged in as admin. I don't understand this. I've never experienced anything like it. I've switched it with different keyboards that I know work on other machines, and the same thing happens. In fact, if I log in as admin, then go to log off or switch user, and again click on Admin, I can't even type in the admin password. All I can do is reboot, and then it works fine. If I log in as user, and switch to admin, same thing, I can't even enter the password. Anyone have any ideas what could be wrong? I don't even know where to look, except the device manager/keyboard driver, and everything looked fine there.
  • 2. Windows XP randomly freezes, then goes back to normal
    Hi everyone, Just wondering if anyone knows how to solve this: I have Windows XP and it freezes every other 10 minutes for about 30 seconds, then it goes right back to normal like nothing happened. Anyone had this before? Thanks, Yossi
  • 3. Norton Anti-virus not working on XP PC
    I have Norton system works/anti-virus 2003 on a windows XP PC, and the autoprotect won't stay on. Symantec's page says that there should be several processing running at startup, and when I look for them, they aren't even listed in msconfig. They suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the software, but I've done this twice and it still does not work. Does anyone know what else I can do, besides ditch the faulty software and buy from some other vendor? (I'm so tired of software that doesn't work...anyone else with me?)
  • 4. repeated notifications for the same Windows update
    I have consistently used Windows Update to install WinXP fixes, and for the last several days I repeatedly (at least daily) am notified about an update that is available to be installed, and it's the same one that I have already installed (several times). The update is Security Update for Microsoft Windows (819696), and it says that once it's installed, it cannot be removed. When I view my Installation History, it shows I have successfully installed this update multiple times (at first I didn't realize that it was the same update). Anyway, does anyone know why I get these repeated reminders? Thanks for any help. Mike
  • 5. boot problem
    I am having an issue when my system boots up in Win XP Pro. If I have the XP Pro cd inserted it will boot up, recognize cd and then go on to boot off hard drive. If XP cd not inserted, system will not boot from hard drive. I have tried using the recovery console with fixmbr, fixboot to no avail and have even tried re-installing system. This has occurred on two machines I have bilt from scratch with brand new hard drives. Any clues on how to approach fixing this issue?? In BIOS is everything fine!

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?
