Hey folks, how's things? I receive an "out of memory" error while trying to run winamp and realplayer. I'm using a 233Mhz AMD K-6 machine with Windows 98. Nothing is running in the background. Even if we close everything but Explorer and Systray, we still get the following error message: "MMSYSTEM007 There is not enough memory for this task. Quit one or more programs, and then try again." System resources are 88%, the machine has 192MB RAM and 3 Gigs free space out of 8 Gigs total space. Windows is managing virtual memory. What am I missing? Thanks.

if you are using two memory cards, take one out and try the system with one card. then try the other card.

I may give that a try. Unfortunately, I don't know what the heck I'm doing. I usually take my machine into shops for hardware service. But I'll open the case and see what I got. Thanks for the reply.

Hey folks, your help did it.

I went to the Microsoft help sites you suggested and tried some of their recommendations. In the end, I believe that uninstalling RealPlayer8 Basic, as the help site suggested, fixed the problem. Thanks again.
