can you open control Panel
if so
open system
and see how much memory the system thinks you have installed

otherwise you could goto the bios and see how much memory

Also how much free disk space do you have

You could also try using safe mode
Tap F8 as the PC boots and choose Safe Mode

Pirateicechick, I'm assuming you're using Windows XP.

Go to the link below and scroll down to line 12 (left column) and click on "EXE (lnk and regfile) Fix for Windows XP" to download a reg file fix. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it or right click it and choose "merge" and answer yes to the import prompt.

If you can't run the file do the following:

Press CTRL-ALT-DEL and open Task Manager. Once there, click File, then hold down the CTRL key and click New Task (Run). This will open a Command Prompt window. Enter REGEDIT.exe and press Enter. Once regedit is open click File>Import and locate that reg file fix, hilite it and click Open.

Note: If you can't access the Internet with the problem computer use another computer to download the reg file fix onto a CD, thumb drive, or floppy and transfer the file to the problem computer.

thanks that worked!!!! Do you know what could of caused that?
Pirateicechick, Glad to see that it worked and as far as what may have caused the problem it's hard to say. Have you used any Registry Cleaner type programs? It could have been virus/malware related. etc. Update your virus definitions and malware program definitions and run full scans. Thanks for posting back.
