Windows registry problem

By Wayneymac ·
I have just inserted a new PC133 128mb memory chip into a PC no problems, then i tried to run scan disk and disk defrag only to be told there were errors that needed fixing so i persisted only until scan disk froze up.
Restarted the PC, only to be greeted by Windows can not access the registry due to insufficient memory.
Every time i restart the memory is not counted/checked i get as far as my background screen but nothing else boots ups.
Next steps ?

Windows registry problem

by leo.valmores In reply to Windows registry problem

Two things:
First, did you add a new memory module. If so, re-seat the memory and see if it works. If not, check your motherboard manual and see if 133Mhz memory speed is supported. If still it does not work, try swapping the memory modules.

Second, did you replace an existing memory module with this new one? If so, try putting back the old one. If it works, then maybe the new memory is busted or its speed is not supported by your motherboard.

I hope defrag and scandisk did not screw up WINDOW system files....

These basic functions which were already carried out.
I have now fixed the problem by setting the bios readings back to defaults then getting the pc to run in safe mode and then a thourough scandisk was run overnight this corrrected all registry problems and any others i may of had. I have now reset the bios to my standard and everything is up and running.
Thanks for the advice though Leo
