I recently got a
Dell Precision 220/p3/733mhz/20gb/128mb/dvdrom
off one of those ebay auctions. I am trying to install Windows2000 Pro on it. The boot disk all run smooth until I get to the 4th floppy. It is then when I get the following messsage:

"THIS COMPUTER DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH MEMORY TO RUN WINDOWS 2000. THIS VERSION REQUIRES 32.00 MB OF MEMORY RAM. SETUP CANNOT CONTINUE"

I am confused cause I have 128mb of ram so i really dont know where the hell it comes up and say that I dont have enough RAM. Maybe I am doing something wrong....or this computer doesnt work!

Can anyone help me out or point me in the right direction? I'd really appreaciate it.

Thanks

Did you make new setup floppys? Maybe you have a corrupt disk.

:confused:

Do you have the original 2k pro disk? Try booting from cdrom if you do.

It seems that i've tried it all and nothing works. I re-did the boot disk and that "not enought memory problem" went away but now, I get another error. Now I get a Blue screen saying:

"STOP....

If this is the first time you see this screen restart your computer.........."

Its like if one problem goes away, another one comes up.

can someone help me out?
