insufficient memory to initialize windows Tags: Windows 98 Hard Drives Memory Windows Last response: January 20, 2003 6:38 AM in Windows 95/98/ME Share Mawhonic January 17, 2003 2:40:04 AM I have formatted my HDD and reinstalled windows 98. Now when I boot up the PC I get this error: Insufficient memory to initialize windows, quit one or more memory resident programs Blah blah. With only 64 megabytes of ram, I am getting this message, similar to the error message I might get if I had over 512 meg of ram. I have tried editing my config.sys file but to no avail. How can I fix this? Please help! J More about : insufficient memory initialize windows camieabz January 17, 2003 3:06:42 AM Quick post of mobo, gfx etc. AGP aperture set at in BIOS? Can you boot in safe mode? If so it's most likely a software/registry issue. If not it's prolly a BIOS setting. <b><font color=blue>~ <A HREF="http://forums.btvillarin.com/viewtopic.php?t=324" target="_new">My System Specs</A> ~<font color=blue></b> :wink: jlanka January 17, 2003 8:53:43 AM Quote:With only 64 megabytes of ram, I am getting this message, similar to the error message I might get if I had over 512 meg of ram. this sentence makes absolutely no sense.

Whenever it tries to restart for whatever reason (coming out of bios, restarting from windows, hitting the reset button) it just hangs in a black screen. What have I done?! Please save me jlanka January 17, 2003 5:50:27 PM so it will hard restart but not soft restart? <i>It's always the one thing you never suspected.</i> Mawhonic January 18, 2003 1:47:25 AM I'm not sure, I just hit the reset button and a black screen comes up with a blinking white line in the top left corner. If I turn the PC off and then on again, it works fine. camieabz January 20, 2003 6:38:58 AM Suggest you remove the gfx card. Give the contact edge a clean and replace. Double check vga connection too. <b><font color=blue>~ <A HREF="http://forums.btvillarin.com/viewtopic.php?t=324" target="_new">My System Specs</A> ~<font color=blue></b> :wink: Can't find your answer ?
