Ok, first of all.... this is my first post, so i'd like to say Hi.

I'm formatting a Dell 8500 laptop fresh with windows xp that i've replaced some parts (monitor, video card, hard drive). And when I go to run a program to install drivers, i get "program is too big to fit in memory"

Any ideas? Thanks in advance for help.

I think you are having the same problem as me.
everytime I try to oupen or run a program I get a MS-DOS screen that flashes "program too big to fit in memory"
it's so fast that you barely have time to see it. I'm starting to get frustrated because it happens in safemode as well. There seems to be nothing I can do. So I hope you don't mind me adding this to your post: Is there anything I can do or is my computer dead at this point.
( I have over a gigabyte of RAM and no programs big enough to fill it)
