PowerMac 6100 problem
Posted on 2000-04-16
I have a powermac 6100/80 with only 250 meg HD, 24 megs Ram. Having only run OS 7.1.2 on this machine, I began having trouble with programs that required greater than 7.5. I loaded OS 8.0. Along with IE 4.5. Aparently OS 8.0 activated virtual memory. So in essence I should have 48 megs of Ram capability.
But when ever I run a program I get the message that there is not enough memory and the computer locks up. I've increased the memory of the programs I'm using. The memory that is supposed to be left on the HD was originally 100 megs. Each time I the computer locks up I loose more memory on the HD. I know there are bugs with OS 8. and I'm trying to download OS 8.1. Unfortunately the computer keeps locking up. What are your ideas on what the problem is and how to correct it. Points release with a workable solution.
