Hi. I have an HP Pavilion DV2000 laptop running Windows XP with the service pack 3 update. Lately, when I boot up my computer, it says that I have insufficent system resources to load my personal settings. I then have to preform a system restore to an earlier time to get the computer to boot properly.

Any suggestions on what might cause this?

Thanks,

Jason

I would go into task manager and goto the processes tab and see whats hogging your memory. On that note how much RAM does the laptop have?

I have 1GB ram with 349MB free. The hard drive has 17GB free. I looked at the Task Manager, but I don't know enough about what's there to know what I can remove. I use trend Micro for virus/spyware

you can reduce system restore to gain space...and some resources
i use trend as well its not a big resource hog...been using it for 3 years now
you can defragment your harddrive
you can disable programs at startup ones that you dont really need at start up does your version of trend has a cleaner built in its program...you can always run cleanup
download it from here give it a run
that will help gain space and some reources

Have you disabled or modified Virtual Memory settings at all?

I've gone through the services and msconfig comands to remove a bunch of un-needed junk.

The strange thing I'm noticing now, is that when it says I have insufficent resources, if I reboot the computer a few times, it actually loads my settings.

I forgot to mention that my virtual memory is set to 1440 MB and the computer recommends 1437MB. Anything else I shouldcheck out with virtual memory?
