This article may help. Vista apparently likes to not add an upper limit to its System Restore function... but only sometimes.

Low memory or hard drive space


Sir this error is probably give to you during the installation of Windows Vista Ultimate.
Probably the problem lies in the fact that your system's specifications might not be meeting the required for Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate.
  • These are the minimum requirements to run Windows Vista on your computer:
  • [*]800 megahertz (MHz) processor and 512 MB of system memory
  • [*]20 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space
  • [*]Support for Super VGA graphics
  • [*]CD-ROM drive


But it is recommended that you use the requirements needed for smooth running of Windows Vista, that are:

[*]1 gigahertz (GHz) 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

[*]1 gigabyte (GB) of system memory (512 megabytes (MB) for Home Basic)

[*]40 GB hard drive with at least 15 GB of available space (20 GB for Home Basic)

[*]Support for DirectX 9 graphics with WDDM and 128 MB of graphics memory (32 MB for Home Basic)

[*]DVD-ROM drive

[*]Audio Output

[*]Internet access

How to reformat..?


These steps are for formatting your primary drive (normally C:\) in Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and Windows 7 and to reinstall the operating system.

The easiest way to format your computer is by locating your operating system CD. Look for a CD or DVD that specifically says "Operating System" or "System Restore". Insert the installation disc into your CD or DVD drive.

Restart your computer.

When your computer is restarting, you will be prompted to "Press any key to boot from CD". Simply press any button on your keyboard when you see this message. If you do not see this message when you restart your computer, you may need to reset your boot disk sequence. *

*To reset the boot sequence, go into BIOS mode. To do this, restart your computer and while restarting press the F1, F2, F10, or maybe the delete key (your computer screen will say "To enter setup press xxx". You only have a few seconds to press the correct key, so if you miss it you will need to restart your computer and try again. Once you have successfully entered the BIOS mode, look for your boot sequence options. Set the CD ROM drive to be the 1st in the boot sequence. Save your changes and exit.

The CD will load a blue screen, then after a few minutes will ask you to press Enter to set up Windows.

You will then be prompted to select where to install Windows. There will be a box on the lower half of your screen that will either show "Unpartitioned space xxxMB" or will have "Partitioned space xxxMB". Highlight which partition you wish to format (typically it will be the unpartitioned space or the space with the largest partition by most megabytes). Hit Enter after selecting the space to partition.

The next step is to choose which file system to format the drive with. The NTFS option will be the fastest option. For most formatting purposes, choose the option that ends in "Quick". Press Enter when done.

The computer will then begin the formatting process. This process may take a while depending on the size of the hard drive you are formatting and the speed of hard drive.

As soon as the drive has been formatted, the operating system files will be copied to the hard drive and the operating system will start installing.

1. Wait the long 5 minutes for your computer to boot. Once you're on the desktop, go to the start menu. Select "run..." Type "msconfig" (no quotes) into the box. The Microsoft system configuration utility should pop up (if you're on Windows XP, Windows 2K users visit: www.techadvice.com/win2000/m/msconfig_w2k.htm

Once this handy tool pops up go to the "Startup" tab...
You will see a list of every process that runs on system startup. Some of these should look familiar; if you know what a program on this list is and you know you don't want it loading on system startup, uncheck it. There will probably be items on the list that you don't recognize. Any of the things on this list can be googled; you'll find a page which explains what a process is, and if it's vital to the system or not. Anything non-essential or unwanted should just be unchecked. Without having to load all that additional garbage your aging computer should boot up much faster (depending on how many processes you disabled). When you exit the msconfig utility you'll see a message about restarting now or later; you are not required to restart right after you do this.

Every time I start my computer, a message pops up: "Low Memory." How do I fix this. Thanks.


Check for the hard drive space where the operating system is installed, normally this message comes when the space is low and windows is not able to create virtual memory required to run windows.

Trying to install windows 7. said I needed


Are you installing within Windows? If so reboot your system with the Windows 7 system disc inside your cd rom, you should see message that says Press Any Key To Boot From CD at this point press any key. The system will load the installation files the it will ask you if you want to install or perform recovery you will select install, then it will ask you if you want to format your hard drive. Formatting your hard drive will erase the entire drive so back up any desired files. This will successfully install windows 7.

Low disc space


That means that your hard drive is full and it would be best if you transfer some or delete some files.

My 9 month old computer suddenly freezes up and must be rebooted


Possible cause may be of either of these two insufficent memory or program malfunction.

First, check the space available on RAM on your sistem. The minimum RAM for a Vista PC is 512 but if you have 512 and is running slow you should upgrade to 1G.

Secondly, your hard disc may be getting full and it may also be the cause of the freezing. You may need to get a backup drive and save most of the file into the external drive or get a bigger hard drive for the system.

Thirdly, program malfunction. It may also be the cause.... Note the which program you are using and with that you can get the right program to uninstall. Or you can simply uninstall all the programs on the OS then reinstall them again..

You simply decide to reinstall a fresh Windows Vista or just repair Windows Vista with the Installation Disc.

Goodluck.
