Clipboard - Out of Memory Notice RRS feed

  • Question

  • SYSTEM: Windows 7 (64 Bit), H-P Compaq Presario CQ56 Computer, Work Area Memory: DDR2= 2.0 GB. Also using the latest SANDISK Memory Stick, 64 GB, half of which is functioning as ReadyBoost.

    QUESTION: When I try to copy short sentences or phrases from my E-mail compositions by using CTRL+"C" (the Clipboard), all I get is the message: "You do not have enough memory to perform this function!" This message usually appears when I have logged-out of E-mail and am already into one of my three Word Processors and try to use CTRL+"V" to Paste the text there.  I can pass text this way from my Word Processors to E-mail (after logging-in). Lucky for me, there doesn't seem to be a BUFFER size-limit going in this direction.

    How can I increase the capacity of the Cut & Paste Text Buffer (the Germans call it "zwischenablage").

  • Today, with a little experimenting, I have answered my own Question. The problem is with WORD 2002 and it's Word Processor which, apparently,  can't handle moving data from E-mail directly to the Word processor. Whether you stay signed-in to  E-mail or not, it still won't work. I even changed the VIRTUAL memory to 24,576 MB on the Hard Drive, and it still didn't help. The solution was to try to use the Clipboard  moving data into OPEN OFFICE 4.0.0  or Microsoft WORD STARTER 2010.  It worked just fine in both those Word Processors and it made no difference whether or not I was signed-in or signed-out of E-mail ! End of Problem. I will just have to scrap WORD 2002.
