Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) review
recently after a new installation of windows xp pro, i leave my computer on usually for a week or so without having to restart it. but since i put a new hdd in, and re-installed windows xp after 2 days of my pc idling i have a major issue. if i go to open any program i have an error saying "Out Of System Resources" anyone know what could be causing this?
my pc specs are:
OS:Windows XP Pro
CPU:AMD Athlon XP 2400
please help me out:)
You may have a reason for leaving your computer on for a week, but it may be a good idea to restart the computer just once a day or maybe once every 2-3 days however you like so that it can clear out and refresh the memory as well.
nope i dont have many processes running, only something like 29, im sure my spec should handle that fine, the reason why i leave my computer on for like a week or so usually, is because its networked, and needs to be on for the other pc to be able to use the internet, i really need to solve it people :(
Another thought, iamlee...
A case of too many periherals connected maybe?
The following taken from click here . Read whole article if you can.
"FREE SYSTEM RESOURCES
Many of the settings within the Integrated Peripherals section can make the difference between a stable and wayward system. As you may know, every single peripheral your machine uses (integrated or otherwise) demands system resources to run. Users often run into problems with hardware conflicts when - unbeknownst to them - two peripherals try and use the same resources. Disabling unused peripherals will free up vital system resources, saving your machine some effort and keeping your frequently used peripherals happy. Disabling onboard Serial, Parallel and Midi ports if they're not being used is a massive save on resources. On the stability front, if you've got a separate modem or sound card and your motherboard has integrated versions of its own ensure they're disabled - the conflict between the two can cause all kinds of havoc."
If it's any consolation, I have similar problems (on Win 98se) from time to time. Nothing seems to help until one fine day, for no apparent reason, the system starts to behave itself again! Funny lot - these computers ; )
Where's Vog, woodchip, Diodorus Siculus, preditor, et al? Any ideas guys?
Will keep posting as & when I find stuff. Good luck, G
nope its nothing to do with the periherals connected :(, and im positive that its nothing to do with my network. my pc was running all fine intill i formatted and had another drive installed, the new drive that i installed is the drive that contains windows xp, do you think it could be a dodgy installation of windows :S, this issue has really confused me badly.
Could be. Some months ago I managed to do 2 dodgy OS installs before getting it right the 3rd time. If you have the time & inclination go for it. Can you possibly wait a few days before taking the plunge? Am hoping some of the forum 'brains' will arrive on the scene to provide some definite answers to this problem. They seem to be on vacation at the moment ; )
Keep 'nudging' this thread every few minutes/hrs - there's bound to be someone who'll know something...
yes im waiting a few days, something like this issue that hasnt been solved, should go on the pc advisor mag :), with an answer added to it :)
Sure - I second that : )
Well, some more ideas...
Try running a full test at PCPitStop: click here . You'll need to register I think, which is free. Tell us what that says.
Give us some details about your motherboard. Also, tell us more about your installed software - the lot. I reckon it's probably some 'rogue' s/w that's stealing those resources. I assume you have DMA enabled for your hard drives - every little helps.
i done some tests on that website, all came up fine. About this DMA how do i check if its enabled?

My System While Freshly Rebooted, The Ammount Of Processes Running = 26, what do you guys think it could be? please help, Thanks! .. Lee
