Insufficient memory problem

By KittyM ·
When printing a particular document from WordXP, this error message appears "There is insufficient memory or disk space. Word cannot display the requested font."
When I copy the page which contains the map picture to a new document and try to print that document, the same error appears. She currently has about 1.7G of free space, 64Mb RAM using Win98 OS. Is a memory upgrade required?

Insufficient memory problem

It is quite common for Word to have probs like this.
First, make sure you have the latest printer drivers or download new ones from the manufacturers website.
Second, try using a lower resolution for printing.
Finally: Check Microsoft Knowledgebase article #255177 for a list of other fixes. at http://support.microsoft.com (just search for the article number at the support page)

While not 'required' it would be very worthwhile to add another 128MB of RAM to the system.

Not only will you have more memory for fonts, the system will actually run a lot faster.

I would also take a look at how many programs are running in the background. (all tray icons represent programs running in the background)
And, the number of installed fonts.

Each installed font takes up resources.

Watch the free space on the hard drive. You need at least 3X the largest document as freeHDD space when you save a file with file backup enabled.

Please take note that 98 runs best [bench test] at 196 mg RAM. TheChas in above answer is dead on as usual. Exceeding 511 mgs of RAM in 98 or me is known to cause problems.
