XP won't start - virtual memory too low

    Don't know what the teen did, but first Explorer wasn't working, now the machine won't come up at all. As soon as Windows start, a message flashes about virtual memory too low, and it tries to reboot itself. Reinstalling XP hasn't helped. I only have access to the machine via setup (Delete key on a Dell machine) or trying to reinstall XP (can get to DOS via a Repair menu.) Any suggestions?

  2. Hi Barbara,

    Virtual memory and Virtual PC aren't the same things :)

    I'd check with an XP newsgroup
