Re: Memory Error Messages

It could be either one of them. It is hard to tell without actually having the computer here. This may sound crazy but make sure your hard drive is not full. Windows uses a swap file that grows each time your computer is powered up and then deleted when powered down. If your hard drive is getting full it has been known to generate memory errors especially when using memory intense programs such as excel and programs like photoshop. Do a system cleanup and defrag your hard drive. Hope these suggestions work!

HP Compaq 6910p - how do I get the Memory Stick Duo Adaptor to be read by my laptop? I inserted the memorystick pro from my Sony camera into the associated adaptor, but the laptop isn't seeing it. Thanks.

into a adapter that is not built into the pc? or the one on the pc? if it is on on the pc does it say it supports MS DUO or just marked SD MMC?

If its external test it on another PC, if it works switch the usb you are using, on your PC

While i was trying to setup vista in my computer its shows me KARNEL_DATA_INPAGE-ERROR HOW CAN I SOLVE

This Stop message indicates that the requested page of kernel data from the paging file could not be read into memory. This Stop message is usually caused by a bad block (sector) in a paging file, a virus, a disk controller error, or failing RAM. In rare cases, it is caused when nonpaged pool resources run out. It is also caused by defective hardware.
User Action:
If the I/O status is C0000185 and the paging file is on a SCSI disk, the disk cabling and SCSI termination should be checked for problems. Check your computer for viruses, using any up-to-date, commercial virus scanning software that examines the Master Boot Record of the hard disk. An I/O status code of 0xC000009C or 0xC000016A normally indicates the data cannot be read from the disk due to a bad block (sector). If you can restart the system after the error,Autochk runs automatically and attempts to map out the bad sector. If Autochk does not scan the hard disk for errors, manually launch the disk scanner. Run Chkdsk /f /r on the system partition. Restart the system before the disk scan begins. If you cannot start the system due to the error, use the Recovery Console and run Chkdsk /r . Caution: If your system partition is formatted with the FAT file system, the long file names used by Windows 2000 can be damaged if Scandisk or another MS-DOSbased hard disk tool is used to verify the integrity of your hard disk from an MS-DOS prompt. (An MS-DOS prompt is typically derived from an MS-DOS startup disk or from starting MS-DOS on a multiboot system.) Always use the Windows 2000 version of Chkdsk on Windows 2000 disks. Another common cause of this Stop message is failing RAM. Run hardware diagnostics supplied by the system manufacturer, especially the memory scanner. For details on these procedures, see the owners manual for your computer. Check that all network adapters in the computer are properly seated. Use an ink eraser or an electrical contact treatment, available at electronics supply stores, to ensure network adapter contacts are clean. Check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help pinpoint the device causing the error. Disabling memory caching of the BIOS might also resolve it. Finally, if all the above steps fail to resolve the error, take the system motherboard to a repair facility for diagnostic testing. A crack, a scratched trace, or a defective component on the motherboard can also cause this error. For more troubleshooting information about this Stop message, refer to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at

There was a powercut whilst I was at lunch and my laptop was connected via the mains only. When I restarted Excel 2007 complained of memory problems and failed to complete loading. It was fine this...

Are you opening a an excel file and excel crashes or are you opening up excel by itself and it crashes?
If your opening a file then it's most likely corrupted. If it's just excel that is crashing then you might have some files that got damaged during the power outtage. To fix that problem close all your applications, go to my computer, right click on C drive, properties, tool, error checking, check now, click both options and click ok. It might ask you to reboot. If excel doesnt' work after that you will have to reload MS office. Your file system will be fixed though.

Please reboot your laptop then boot it using safe mode then uninstall the latest installation you have and then restore your operating system. Also try to check again your application if its support the kind of operating system you have in your system.

Dell Inspiron 1525 Blue screen & windows error messages/reformat

Do a recovery first and if you are still getting a blue screen on this 1525 call dell and ask for a replacment do not go any further in trying to repair it yourself as anything you do would just make matters worse if its out of warrenty then the only thing you can do is try:

1. clean the unit if there is any dust
2. try new memory modules
3. run a memory diagnostic on it using windos diagnostics
4. recover the operating system.

I hope you have some good luck with this advice.

Getting "Not enough memory available to complete this operation" error message using Sound Recorder


there are a couple things you can try,

First update your windows, xp is limited but can handle more than three GB of RAM. You will need to update to service pack 3 which is available through windows update.

If that doesn't work, go to and click on support, then enter your service tag or express service code(on a white sticker on the bottom of the laptop) then go to downloads for your unit and look for firmware updates that relate to memory and any updates relating to your chipset.

Follow the instructions on the firmware carefully as messing this one up can damage the laptop.

Once you have finished try once again. If it still doesn't work you can try increasing your virtual memory to allow for some overflow, but if the first two suggestions don't work it's unlikely more virtual memory will help, still, worth a try.

Hope this helps FixYa
