    I don't know why limiting memory through msconfig>advanced would cause that. But you will probably need to do something to address the large amounts of memory issue. Perhaps better to remove a stick or limit vcache in system.ini by using the MaxFileCache entry.


    scanreg /restore may get your display back, or you just may need to remove and reinstall the video drivers.
