Not enough virtual memory


Step 1:
Virtual memory is a portion of your hard drive that Windows sets aside to utilize as memory. When your RAM is over utilized, the operating system can swap pages of data to the hard drive to make more room. Swapping files, or paging, is slow, but it allows your computer to remain functional when your memory space is full. If your virtual memory space, or page file, fills up as well, you'll get an error. Fixing this issue is quick and the process is identical in safe mode or in a typical boot situation.


Change Virtual Memory Settings in Windows XP Click "Start" from the Windows desktop. Right-click "My Computer" and click "Properties." Select the "Advanced" tab and under Performance click "Settings." Select the "Advanced" tab and click "Change" under Virtual Memory. Click "System managed " to allow Windows to automatically adjust your Virtual Memory as needed. Click "Custom " to alter the memory space to your own specifications. Enter a value in MB equal to at least 1.5 times the of your computer's memory for the initial . Enter a value in MB no larger than four times your memory for maximum . Click "OK" and restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

    2. Make sure the computer hardware is well arranged. See that the monitor, keyboard, mouse and CD drive are properly connected.

    3. Confirm that you have the hardware drivers CD. You will need it for the communication between Windows XP and the components of your computer. This CD should have been provided by your computer vendor.

Installation process Installing Windows XP can take up to two hours. To make the process more manageable, it has been broken up into several sections. When you are ready, install Windows XP:
Part 1: Begin the installation
1.
Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer and restart your computer.
2.
If prompted to start from the CD, press SPACEBAR. If you miss the prompt (it only appears for a few seconds), restart your computer to try again.

xp-setup-1-welcome-to-setup.jpg 4.
On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement page, read the licensing agreement. Press the PAGE DOWN key to scroll to the bottom of the agreement. Then press F8.

5.
This page enables you to select the hard disk drive on which Windows XP will be installed. Once you complete this step, all data on your hard disk drive will be removed and cannot be recovered. It is extremely important that you have a recent backup copy of your files before continuing. When you have a backup copy, press D, and then press L when prompted. This deletes your existing data.
6.
Press ENTER to select Unpartitioned space, which appears by default.

7.
Press ENTER again to select Format the partition using the NTFS file system, which appears by default.

8.
Windows XP erases your hard disk drive using a process called formatting and then copies the setup files. You can leave your computer and return in 20 to 30 minutes.



Part 2: Continue the installation
9.
Windows XP restarts and then continues with the installation process. From this point forward, you can use your mouse. Eventually, the Regional and Language Options page appears. Click Next to accept the default settings. If you are multilingual or prefer a language other than English, you can change language settings after setup is complete.

10.
On the Personalize Your Software page, type your name and your organization name. Some programs use this information to automatically fill in your name when required. Then, click Next.

11.
On the Your Product Key page, type your product key as it appears on your Windows XP CD case. The product key is unique for every Windows XP installation. Then, click Next.

12.
On the Computer Name and Administrator Password page, in the Computer name box, type a name that uniquely identifies your computer in your house, such as FAMILYROOM or TOMS. You cannot use spaces or punctuation. If you connect your computer to a network, you will use this computer name to find shared files and printers. Type a strong password that you can remember in the Administrator password box, and then retype it in the Confirm password box. Write the password down and store it in a secure place. Click Next.

13.
On the Date and Time Settings page, set your computer's clock. Then, click the Time Zone down arrow, and select your time zone. Click Next.

14.
Windows XP will spend about a minute configuring your computer. On the Networking Settings page, click Next.

15.
On the Workgroup or Computer Domain page, click Next.



Part 3: Complete the installation
16.
Windows XP will spend 20 or 30 minutes configuring your computer and will automatically restart when finished. When the Display Settings dialog appears, click OK.

17.
When the Monitor Settings dialog box appears, click OK.

18.
The final stage of setup begins. On the Welcome to Microsoft Windows page, click Next.

19.
On the Help protect your PC page, click Help protect my PC by turning on Automatic Updates now. Then, click Next.

20.
Windows XP will then check if you are connected to the Internet:
• If you are connected to the Internet, select the choice that describes your network connection on the Will this computer connect to the Internet directly, or through a network? page. If you're not sure, accept the default selection, and click Next.

• If you use dial-up Internet access, or if Windows XP cannot connect to the Internet, you can connect to the Internet after setup is complete. On the How will this computer connect to the Internet? page, click Skip.

21.
Windows XP Setup displays the Ready to activate Windows? page. If you are connected to the Internet, click Yes, and then click Next. If you are not yet connected to the Internet, click No, click Next, and then skip to step 24. After setup is complete, Windows XP will automatically remind you to activate and register your copy of Windows XP.

22.
On the Ready to register with Microsoft? page, click Yes, and then click Next.

23.
On the Collecting Registration Information page, complete the form. Then, click Next.

24.
On the Who will use this computer? page, type the name of each person who will use the computer. You can use first names only, nicknames, or full names. Then click Next. To add users after setup is complete or to specify a password to keep your account private, read Create and customize user accounts.

25.
On the Thank you! page, click Finish.

Congratulations! Windows XP setup is complete.

My e2000 keeps diconnecting from two older computer using window xp but my windows vista computer stays very well connected. what is my problem?


I think the type of wireless security on your network might be WPA2. Some times the WPA2 is not supported on Windows XP and the wireless connection will drop.
Open the setup page of the router and check the wireless settings of the network.
Also set the wireless channel to fixed number 6.
You will need to access the setup page of the router.
See if that works.

Laptop powers on, but windows doesnt load


Boot PC from Windows XP installation CD you will be ask to instal fresh copy or repair existing installation - go for "fresh copy" software will analyze you PC and try to find your previous copy of Win XP you will be ask again to repair copy of your existing Windows Xp now go for "Repair" option so installation software restore all Windows files and will keep all your settings*.
This solution is only temporary because IE 7 and 8 will no longer work after restoring - backup all your data and instal fresh copy of Win XP after all and always keep Your Backup up to date!!

Printer prints multiple pages with DPR1260 print server


I was having the same problem when I added a Windows Vista PC to my home network. My older XP systems workd fine, but the Vista system would keep printing. The following fix worked forme in vista, may work in XP also.

1. First, be sure you have the latest firmware in your DPR1260. Version 1.24 is what I am using.
2. From the printer window (or via controlm panel) select your printer, then select Properties (either right click, or from the menu via File-Properties)
3. In the Properties Window, select the Ports tab. You should see your printer highlighted and checked, under the port heading next to thcheck box you'll see IP_192.168.x.x, under descriptio Standard TCP/IP Port, and undr Printer, the name of your printer.
4. Click the "Configure Port" button, be sure "LPR" is selected, not "RAW". Under LPR Settings, check that the "Queue Name" matches that in our DPR1260 status screen, and be sure SNMP Status Enabled is not checked.

The problem on my Vista machine went away when I changed from "RAW" to "LPR" settings.

Hope this helps.
