    Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service

    Hi

    I am havinf troubles on our network where users keep getting "Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service".

    We have a windows 2003 server SP2 with few network drives. When users try and access the mapped network drives from their machines (XP SP2), they get the above message.
    Even if i try and log to the server and double click on any of the drives i get that message!!!! Quite annoying and this goes on for few minutes and things are back to normal.
    Have tried a server reboot which fixes the problem temporarily but then after few days this comes back again!!! Argghhhhhh!!!!

    Any ideas on this????

    Thanks

    If you take a look in My Computer, how much disk space do you have free? And if you press ctrl+alt+del and open up Task Manager, how much memory do you have free?

    More than likely you're running out of memory. It's also possible you have a memory leak (an application or driver) which is eating up your RAM. Viruses also have been known to do this too.

    Check the event logs and post the Event ID, if its 2019 or 2020 checkout:

    Event ID 2019 or 2020 or "Insufficient System Resources" error returned when logging on

    If not, post the Event ID.....
