 System Resources Dangerously Low Post a Reply  
From: Gil on 01/07/2002
I am running a Dell Pentium III, Windows ME, with 128 MB of RAM. Today I started having serious problems. The first problem was when I tried to open a Word document while running my internet explorer. Other times it was when I just opened up Word, even though nothing else was open.

I have received a number of error messages, including:
"System is dangerously low on resources"
"There is not enough free memory to run this program"
"Explorer General protection fault in module USER.EXE @ 0003:00003bab"

Usually these are followed by a blue screen, telling me to either CTRL ALT DEL or to just hit any key. This usually has a line "Error OE: 0187:BFF8E64B"
I can never get rid of this screen by hitting a key (it just comes back). I have to close the system, often by holding down the power on button.

When I start back up I have display problems.

I also checked my System upon re-boot. It said under System Properties that System Resources are 77% free.

Help!

Good day All,

I am running a HP Pavilion N5150 Laptop using Windows ME with 191 MB or RAM. I am having the exact same error codes as below but I get them while using VB6 sp5. It is driving me nuts as it happens about every half hour while I am debugging some code.

Any Ideas out there? Please email me

The fix worked for me, too. Renamed the Normal.dot file and it was fine. So simple and yet so freaking hard to figure out.

Thanks for sharing solutions.

(FYI, Windows ME on a Dell--actually neighbors computer so I don't know much about it, just get called upon to fix it.)
