Out of memory??

  Whitster 09:36 15 Mar 2010

Hi just added an additional 512 mb of RAM to my laptop which which now has 1gb. But when i try to open access 97 which is a program i use everyday. i get an error message "out of memory" close some programs and try again? - Why would this happen, i have tried taking out the 512mb ram and it will then open.
The RAM is the correct one as i have checked on cruial memory, and the laptop recognising the additional ram when installed.

Any ideas??

Right-click on My Computer, then Properties>Advanced> then Advanced again, and check Virtual Memory, click on Change to increase as necessary. Click on Apply and OK out.

Hope this helps.
