Try to boot to the safe mode, when use the splash screen of your system press f8, you will be able to choose there safe mode or safe mode with networking. Make sure that there is no virus or spyware.
Check in Task Manager and see how much physical memory is being used.
Then check your PF Usage, the problem may be a lack of virtual memory.
Go to System Properties > Advanced and under Performance Options click Settings. Then click on the Advanced tab and click Change under Virutal Memory.
-Click Custom size and set the Initial size to 384MB and Maximum to 768MB.
Then try to reboot and then defrag,reboot again.

The first thing I would look at is a memory problem. Go to CMOS and see if the PC is showing the correct amount of memory. If your PC has more than one memory module, I would take one out and boot the PC, if it start, then it is that module. If it doesn't start, try the other memory module.
Make sure you power off the computer each time before you remove the memory.

If and when you are able to start the PC, go to msconfig and see what you have loading in start up. I would remove anything that is not needed at start up.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: lsass.exe system error insufficient system resources exist to com

You probably have been hit by a virus that is attacking your Local Security Accounts Windows file and is using all your system resources. You may not be able to perform a system scan to fix this issue do to the lack of system resources. Now if you have another pc with a good and upto date antivirus application you can take the hard drive out of your computer and plug it into that other computer and scan it and remove the infection and while you have it in their go to the command prompt and repair the windows files by typing:
chkdsk E: /r
The E: is the drive letter of your infected drive you will know what this is when you go into my computer.
Also use a spyware program like Adaware that is up to date to scan the drive as well.
This all assumes you want to save the drive, Windows, and all your applications. Now if you don't care about those things then try a system restore to go back to a working point in your computers history.
Otherwise repair mode for windows will work also.

What it means "insufficient system


the problem is caused by the fact that the Windows kernel power manager doesn't manage to find a block of contiguous memory to hibernate. This happens occasionally on pc with 2Gb of RAM. just search "Hotfix" and download. It will fix the problem.

Insufficient system resources exist to complete the api


The computer occasionally does not hibernate and you receive an “Insufficient System Resources Exist to Complete the API” error message in Windows XP with Service Pack 2, in Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005, or in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. Apparently, the problem is caused by the fact that the Windows kernel power manager doesn’t manage to find a block of contiguous memory to hibernate. This happens occasionally on laptops with 2Gb of RAM. It can be quite annoying when you put your laptop to sleep, pop it in your haversack, then some time later find a discharged battery and a VERY HOT laptop bag , it’s nice that they solved the problem, HOWEVER, you can’t actually download the hotfix, but have to contact Product Support Services for it. I’m not sure if there’s a fee to be paid for it, so I just Googled the hotfix and found a copy elsewhere.
Here’s a copy if anyone wants it: Download here: http://www.u-g-h.com/content/binary/WindowsXP-KB909095-x86-ENU.exe
