picture display, low memorey

By suzabunie ·
First jpeg pictures would not display on my computer in any imaging device, but would display using the gallery feature online, now pictures aren't showing up online, when I click on copy and read the clip board I get a message saying either low memorey quit applications, or Windows dosen't have information on this data. I have plenty of memorey available, the computer shows 69% free, and I have quit all underlying programs except system tray and explorer. I have run every diagnostic that I can, run every system tool, unloaded a bundle of programs, nothing has worked. I can still use the online viewer to view the stored pictures.I'm tired of deleting adapters..
Help!!

You need to supply more information about your problem.

1. What type of Windows do you use.
2. What is your computer configuration:
a) processor type and speed
b) memory
c) graphic adapter
d) additional devices (scanner, camera)
3. What software do you use for viewing images.

JPG format is industry standard and is supported by all imaging software. In fact, you can view jpg images using any web browser such as IExplorer or Netscape, Perhaps you need to setup your imaging device and software once again.

Other things to check when something is fishy are:
Virus scan,
Scandisk,
Disk defragmentation.

Sometimes, there could be faulty hardware. Try to test your imaging device (scanner or camera) on your friend's computer.

I already stated I ran all system tools. This answer also does not address the problem of pictures not being displayed on web pages, but being able to be displayed using the aol and cc picture gallery.

It appears to be a caching problem , but without more info it's difficult to determine just how to attack it, so i wil give you a few techniques I use to keep everything zipping. #1 , clean-out the C:\Windows \Temp file , look and see if there is anything you want , and delete the rest, Win wil tell you if it is using anything , and tell it ok if it is. #2 clean out the Documents folder on the Start Menu, #3 at this point reboot , #4 Find a tiny AVI file and copy it to the desktop , Rt click itand select properties , and preview , run it and close it, this goes in the back door and clears the Video cache and video Ram,#5 Paste a single Word into a text file , this clears the Clipboard, #6 run Disk cleanup , this clears the unnecessary file out of Temp I-Net folder. At this point see how it handles viewing a Bmp or Jpeg , if ok , then reboot and then defrag the beast. BUT before you do anything , this sounds like one of the new viruses/worms, Do a Deep Scan with your AntiVirus program just to be sure. The tips on maintence will help , but will not overcome a third party viewer thats a memory hog , or sloppy and leaky. Good luck

I should have read Savatovic's answer closer and not crossed into their answer, so if the problem is what we both said , give the points to Savatovic. Have a good day

Again, this does not address all the problems, and suggests I run my system tools, which I have done. I have used the cntrl-alt-del, to close any programs that are running except explorer and system tray. So these things are not the answer.
Sorry, Sue.

So far I have recieved two answers, neither of which helped. Both told me to defrag and do a disc scan, which I have mentioned I have done. Neither addressed the problem of pictures not appearing on web pages, and the words that are displayed when Icopy the unshown picture to the clipboard.
With windows 98 and a memory capacity of 96 and 69% free, I should think that isn't any of the problem, nor the adapters, which I've deleted, and the cache and temp folders which are deleted everytime I close my browser.
Please Help!

You can keep the points, what is important is that what you discribe is a virus , worm, or a hacker , see if your Antivirus maker has an online scanner that can test your setup, as it looks like your checker has been messed with . Otherwise you willhave to reinstall , I hate to see that happen , but before you do , have you contacted customer support? as this , if it's the way you discribe, is a major bug, I really hope you resolve it without too much hassle. Good luck, and one last thought, if you are able to view the jpeg and other types while off line , which you should try , then attempt to repair Explorer if not already done , that function is in tools in the System config section.

Neither do I need your points Suzabunie.

Like I said before JPG format is such a common standard that it should work right of the box with any browser (IE or Netscape), any Operating system (Windows, MAC) and any software (including Word, Photoshop etc).
If it doesn't then you have a seriously messed PC and like KGosnell said, reinstalling is the best option. It's not that bad option at all. And "what doesn't kill you, gets you stronger", you can actually benefit from it and gain more experience.

One last thing. Concerns Internet Explorer.
On Tools menu, Internet Options ..., Advanced tab, there is a checkbox under Multimedia, Show Pictures. Check that this is enabled. There exists another option for disabling pictures in the browser, but this comes only if you have downloaded "powertoys" for Internet Explorer. Perhaps AOL have them by default. Sorry, I don't know anything about AOL (I'm from another country).

Wishing you and KGosnell all the best in this new year.

Dusko
