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

The MS Knowledge base has an article that addresses this issue http://support.microsoft.com/kb/284893/en-us#appliesto
The article states that there is a 2 gig memory limitation when using MS Sound Recorder but it doesn't have a fix for how to work around this limitation.
I have 4 gig of memory in Win XP SP 2

Is there any way to work with this problem?

    i recently installed a 1 gb RAM . my pc already had 2 gb of RAM installed. After installing new 1 gb RAM suddenly there was no sound coming from my microphone. the microphone is working on other computer.
    any solution?


  • radu_la Apr 24, 2009

    I have the same problem; unfortunately, there's no solution. Microsoft's note re 2GB limit was posted in December 2007, obviously they have no intention of fixing Sound Recorder.
    (side note) While I can understand "brags" frustration, he has an attitude not exactly conducive to asking/receiving help. IT SUCKS!

This problem occurs because of a design limitation in Sound Recorder and not because of any problem with the underlying multimedia. That means that the program is unable to access more than 2 gigs of memory by design.

Have a 85 errors


When you try to connect a drive that was previously connected to a Distributed File System (DFS) resource, you may receive the following error message: System error 85 has occurred. The local device name is already in use.This error message persists for the particular drive letter in that particular Terminal Services session. The same drive letter for other Terminal Services sessions may work as expected. A different drive letter that is not typically used also works as expected. The only way to correct the issue is to restart the Terminal Services-based system.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Microsoft Windows 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 260910 How to obtain the latest Windows 2000 service pack (if you are using windows 2000)

How to fix "Operating System Not Found" error when you start your Windows...


When you try to start a Windows XP-Based computer, you may receive an error message that the operating system is not found.
APPLIES TO
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Symptoms
When you start a Windows XP-Based computer, you may receive one of the following error messages.
Error message 1
Operating system not found.
Error message 2
Missing Operating System
When you start your computer to the Recovery Console to recover functionality, you may receive an error message that resembles the following error message:
Setup did not find any hard drives installed on your computer.
CausesThis issue may occur if one or more of the following conditions are true:
The basic input/output system (BIOS) does not detect the hard disk.
The hard disk is damaged.
Sector 0 of the physical hard disk drive has an incorrect or malformed master boot record (MBR).

Note Some third-party programs or disk corruption can damage an MBR.
An incompatible partition is marked as Active.
A partition that contains the MBR is no longer active.
Resolution To resolve this issue, use one of the following methods, depending on your situation.

Contact your hardware manufacturer
Your best bet may be to contact the manufacturer of your computer or your hard disk. The manufacturer may have a utility that you can use to perform a more detailed scan for damaged areas of the disk and help verify the correct BIOS settings. However, be aware that the damage to your hard disk may be serious. Sometimes this means that your only solution is to replace your hard disk.

If a fix or workaround is not available, you can use the "Advanced Troubleshooting" section to try to resolve this issue.

Advanced troubleshooting
This section is intended for advanced computer users. If you are not comfortable with advanced troubleshooting, you might want to ask someone for help or contact support. For information about how to contact Microsoft support, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/
Method 1: Verify the BIOS settings
Verify the computer's BIOS settings to make sure that BIOS lists and recognizes the hard disk. See the computer documentation or contact the hardware manufacturer for information about how to verify the BIOS settings.

After you verify that the computer's BIOS detects the hard disk, restart the computer, and then test to determine whether the issue is resolved. If the issue is not resolved, or if the computer's BIOS cannot detect the hard disk, you may have issues with your hardware. Contact the hardware manufacturer to inquire about how to resolve this issue. You may have to replace the hard disk.

For information about how to contact hardware manufacturers, click the appropriate article number in the following list to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
65416 Hardware and software vendor contact information, A-K

60781 Hardware and software vendor contact information, L-P

60782
Hardware and software vendor contact information, Q-Z

Method 2: Use Recovery Console
Use the fixmbr command in the Windows XP Recovery Console to repair the MBR of the startup partition.

Warning This command can damage your partition table if a virus is present or if a hardware problem exists. If you use this command, you may create inaccessible partitions. We recommend that you run antivirus software before you use this command. We also recommend that you backup your data before you use this command. If the fixmbr command detects an invalid or non-standard partition table signature, the fixmbr command prompts you for permission before rewriting the MBR. The fixmbr command is supported only on x86-based computers.

My operating system is windows 98, i recently upgraded my memory card from i gigabyte to 2 gigs, but every time i boot my computer there is an error message low in memory, the question is; how can i boot...


CAUSE:
The Windows 32-bit protected-mode cache driver (Vcache) determines the maximum cache size based on the amount of RAM that is present when Windows starts. Vcache then reserves enough memory addresses to permit it to access a cache of the maximum size so that it can increase the cache to that size if needed. These addresses are allocated in a range of virtual addresses from 0xC0000000 through 0xFFFFFFFF (3 to 4 gigabytes) known as the system arena.

On computers with large amounts of RAM, the maximum cache size can be large enough that Vcache consumes all of the addresses in the system arena, leaving no virtual memory addresses available for other functions such as opening an MS-DOS prompt (creating a new virtual machine).

WHAT CAN U DO?
To work around this problem, use one of the following methods:
  • Use the MaxFileCache setting in the System.ini file to reduce the maximum amount of memory that Vcache uses to 512 megabytes (524,288 KB) or less. For additional information about how to use the MaxFileCache setting, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 108079 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/108079/EN-US/ ) 32-Bit File Access Maximum Cache Size
  • Use the System Configuration utility to limit the amount of memory that Windows uses to 512 megabytes (MB) or less.For additional information about how to use the System Configuration utility, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 181966 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/181966/EN-US/ ) System Configuration Utility Advanced Troubleshooting Settings
  • Reduce the amount of memory that is installed in your computer to 512 MB or less.

Lost of Hibernation


his 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 http://support.microsoft.com/support.

Need patch kb959247


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, I tried checking with Microsoft and I was informed that "The Knowledge Base (KB) Article You Requested Is Currently Not Available" pertaining to your required KB959247. Sorry.

However, I checked further and was informed that the actual message is:
"The Windows Vista operating system is not fully up-to-date, and theKB929547 Vista Patch is not present. If you install AVG on your systemwithout the KB929547 Vista Patch, you might experience significantsystem slowdown and internet connectivity issues."

Should this be the case, then what you probably need is KB929547 Vista Patch.

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.

You can't uninstall Explorer, per se. Windows Explorer and Internet Explorer actually use the same base executable files, and Windows will not run without these files. However, if you are having problems with it, you can do a reinstall/repair of Internet Explorer in XP. There is a Microsoft knowledge base article explaining how to do this here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318378/EN-US/ If your Internet Explorer is fine, and you wish to uninstall Windows Explorer, well, that's just not possible, short of reinstalling Windows completely. If this knowledge base article isn't what you need, can you explain why you need to uninstall Windows Explorer? Possibly we can find another solution.
