    I'm trying to install BioShock on my desktop computer, but every time I try to install it, a DOS prompt pops up and says "Program too big to fit in memory.". I have 3 gigs of RAM but only about 30% is being used at any one time, and my computer meets the recommended requirements for BioShock and then some...

    So, what's the problem?

    Make sure that the drive you have significant privligise to write on the drive(as well as the system). If not, give it to them. Also as MysticEyx said, it may be a defective drive, but it is very unlike that much space would be corrupt
