Memory/Clipboard? Problem

By srasmusen-67964798 ·
Hello

I am having real problems with Windows 95 and Office 97.
I'm not sure what the error messages mean. Can anyone
point me in the right direction?

I have a home network with two PC's and one printer. The
client/server machine runs Windows Me. Everything was OK
then one day the network crashed. I don't know what
happened. I have got the network going again but now get
error messages in Word saying, "This document cannot be
registered. It will not be possible to create links from
other documents to this document" whenever I open a file
and in Word I can't copy/cut and paste. The warning
says, "There is not enough memory or disk space to
complete this work"
In Excel the warning says, "I can't access the clipboard
as it is full".

Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it?

Thanks

Hi

Have you tried to delete your swap file? There may be corrupt information that prevents you from working properly. Right-click My Computer, select Properties, click the Performance tab, and click the Virtuasl Memory button. Select 'Let me specify my own virtual memory settings' and make the maximum and minimum 0 (zero). Close, click yes on the warning dialog box that pops up, then shut down your system. Reboot, follow the steps again, and set your swap file settings to their previous value, shut down and reboot.

If this does not solve your problem, open Word, then select Help, then Detect and repair. This will check and repair any errors in Microsoft Office. Hmmm, well this option is available in Office 2000. Maybe you will have to uninstall, then reinstall office

Hope this helps

Thanks guys.

Both comments were helpful, but neither completely solved the mess I was in. I ended up flattening the hard drive and re-installing Windows 95. I was only running Office 97 and Internet Explorer so it didn't take too long to re-install the software.I lost my network card driver too and that took longer to find than I expected but I'm now back in the land of the living.

Thanks again.

Scott
