Problem with out of memory box when editing video with Ulead 11 plus

I Trouble with out of memory code when using Ulead. I have a Dell Dimension Dim 3000 Intell (R) with a Pentium (R) 4 CPU 2.80 GHz. 2.79 GHz, 1.25 GB of Ram. I have service pack 2. PC graphics upgrade VisionTec X1550 256 MA video card. I have Ulead 11 plus and other video programs and they all have a out of memory warning when I try to insert more than 5 or 10 pictures into the main video. Also when I burn the video, from 30 to 50 minutes long, the DVD will have skips in the finished product. I have tried the same thing on my Dell Laptop and it works fine. I purchased this tower to do videos and as of yet I can' use it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dave

    I tried your solution. My computer has never been this fast before, I believe you have cured the problem. I will try Ulead to make sure but it loads in seconds instead of minutes. Thanks, Thanks Thanks. Your web site is GREAT!!!!!

Hi Dave,

A couple of suggestions:
1. increase your swap file/virtual memory to roughly double your physical memory;
2. defrag your main hard drive;
3. while running Ulead, disable temporarily your anti-virus (and your net connection);
4. Trim/slim down your startup files (msconfig);
5. select "Adjust for best performance" in your Performance Options (System properties);
6. Verify that you do not have any virus or malwares lurking somewhere.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like Faulty RAM modules, Open the box, and Try removing the Memory and re-inserting it, if that does not work, try one at a time and start the machine..**Make sure u close the Box before powering on. It could be bad Memory (RAM) module.

Try unplugging your video card and re-seating it. Sometimes, when they are cleaned, the card gets bumped and isn't quite seated right. If that doesn't work, try doing the same thing with your memory sticks.

Move HD from Dimension 4300 into Dimension 4700 / XP HomeED both.

You can change the hard drive, but it will create major driver issues.
You will have to let the computer tell you which drivers are missing and go back and download them from the manufacturers website or use the software that you have.
You cannot damage the hdd doing this.

The easy way to do this would be to install this as a secondary hdd, this would allow for more storage and less problems.
