    Hi everyone

    Has anyone gotten an error message in Win 98 that suggests increasing the "Minsp" value in system.ini?

    I looked for Minsp and could not find it.

    My computer is pretty unstable right now when on the internet.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    The radical answer: Format and reinstall with all the windows updates. If windows was installed long ago and many programs have been installed/uninstalled, a complete format is the best... if you know how to do! If you do you can install WinXp instead, if you have a PIII 500 with at least 128 meg of ram (minimum), winXP will be able to run.
    Hope that help!

    MinSPs=Minimum Stack Pages
    these errors usually occur b'cos of a bad device driver. try looking for an update for any of your device drivers.
    till then try this
    Go to start-run, type sysedit without the quotation mark and OK to open the System Configuration Editor. Select the system.ini window.
    Go to the section and add the following line to the [386Enh] section of the System.ini file.

    [386Enh]
    MinSPs=12

    Save the system.ini. Exit the System ConfigurationEditor and restart the computer.
    If the problem persists, increase the number of spare stack pages in increments of 4 (for example, 8, 12, 16). Each spare stack page requires 4 kilobytes of memory. There should never be an odd number. It should be in increments of "4" if i m right.

    P.S. Win98 by default handles MinSps by itself. so pls back up your stuff if something goes wrong accidentally.
