View Full Version : No Spare Stack Pages

09-03-2002, 11:28 AM
Hi Guys,
Have started to have a problem when I open my hotmail through MSN. The dreaded 'Blue screen' comes up with the following message:

There are no spare stack pages.
Increase settings of MinSps in the system.ini
There are currently 5 sps allocated.

I have gone into System.ini & cannot find any reference to stack pages or sps in order to increase them.
I have a pentium III/550mhz running on win98,56k modem. The problem seems to have started after I upgraded to Internet Explorer 6.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Diana

standard cut and paste MS answer- 'To resolve this situation, add the following line to the [386Enh] section of the System.ini file and then restart your computer: MinSPs=4 If the problem persists, increase the number of spare stack pages in increments of 4 (for example, 8, 12, 16). NOTE: Each spare stack page requires 4 kilobytes of memory.'
