    Hi chanmuangseri ,

    Go to Start/run, and type System.ini, followed by clicking 'OK'.
    Your System.ini will now open in Notepad.

    Scroll down to the [386Enh] section.
    In that section, if you see a line that reads "MinSPs= ", add 4 to the number next to it.

    If you don't find that line, then add the line MinSPs=4 to the section.
    If that doesn't do it, make it MinSPs=8.

    Good luck,
