OS Windows XP on ACER Travelmate 2303LC Notebook. During start up there is a system error message "Insufficient system resources exist to complete the API". Clicking OK on this message causes machine to restart. Any help appreciated.
I had this problem on my Medion Laptop, I went into BIOS and set APIC MODE SUPPORT to Enabled but You have to reload Windows after. It gave me 23 IRQ where 16 is the norm.
APIC Support If the target has at least one IOAPIC (Input Output Advanced Interrupt Controller), RTTarget-32 applications can use it to replace the legacy i8259 interrupt controllers. In APIC mode, the interrupt processing overhead is lower and typically up to 24 (max. 32) IRQ lines are available, requiring less IRQ sharing. While multiprocessor applications always use APIC mode, single CPU programs can choose between the default legacy PIC mode and APIC mode.
I have at last managed to get the machine to start up at the command prompt mode. I managed to do this by switching the pc off a few times during boot up. This forced it to give me the start up options but any of the windows options caused the error to reappear. What is my best course of action now?
