Title:

Why am I getting a system resources insufficient message?

Text:

When I try to boot up my Acer Aspire One ZG5 it doesn't complete the process.  As it gets to the windows start up, I get an "Insufficient System Resources exist to complete the API" message.

I've tried to boot it up in safe mode to look into the installed programs to see if there's an issue there but I can't even get it to boot up in safe mode.

I took it completely apart and replaced the memory module thinking it had to be that, but it didn't help, I still get the same error message.

Can you tell me what may be causing it.  If it's the motherboard it's probably not worth fixing since it's already 4 years old, but I'd like to know what else it could be that might be a cheaper fix. Any help you can give me with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
