"Since no one else has mentioned it, 128MB is not much memory. "

Good advice. If I read the post correctly, you (Quilla) were using this machine to run CAD? If so, double the RAM, set the page file to 110% of installed memory, set page file to separate disc volume from OS (not just different disc partition!). Also, MS is famous for cryptic error messages. It's possible that your low virtual memory message is related to the log file size for the Event Viewer Application or System logs. Default log size is 512kb - some applications demand that you increase to 1024kb. The Event Viewer is a good place to look for other problems as well.
Good luck Quilla,

I love cruising along with 512mb pc133. I used 128mb with win2k as an experiment and it was painful. 256MB memory is the minimum for win2k and XP.
