Insufficient System Resources???

Post by James Robert » Wed, 21 May 2003 03:33:43



After lets say an hour and a half (times can vary) of
having the computer switched on, a message starts
appearing when i try and open pretty much any program...
this message is "Insufficient System Resources exist to
complete the requested service"
I have tried defragmenting the disk, remvoving
unnecessary files etc (about 6GB) and also purchasing
some more memory.
my computer spec is 800mhz, 768 mb ram (sdram) 30GB hard
disk.
if anyone can help please post a reply...this has been
going on for about 6 months now and no one seems to know
whats going on..
cheers
james

This could be a single misbehaving application that is not
returning memory to the system pool after use . Make a note
of each application you use - avoid using each one in turn
and see if the problem abates . Alternatively, press control alt delete
when you are running out of memory and click the processes tab
to see which application is hogging the memory

come up even if i dont load any programs after a certain

Download Adaware from http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/ and use
it to remove parasites.

Have you installed any memory boosters or the like?

Hope this helps.
