Dealing with the "Not Enough Memory" Message?
95LX 100/200LXThe built-in applications execute from ROM. However, some System RAM memory known as the "data segments" temporarily gets used. This portion temporarily stores data such as appointments, ToDo's, memos, before they get stored on the C or A drive.
The greater the allocation of System RAM, the more applications you can have open, the bigger the Memo or Lotus file you can work with, etc.
If you get the "Not Enough Memory" message when you try to open a built-in application, you've run out of System RAM. Simply quit one of the other open applications to make more room. No need to quit Filer, it always occupies space whether it's open or not.
Later, if you desire, you can go to SET UP and increase the amount of System RAM available.
Press (&...) to go to AppManager and press (F8) until a list of the applications is displayed.
In the center of the top black bar you'll see a phrase similar to 420K Free / 523 Total. The first number indicates the amount of System RAM currently available. The second number indicates the amount of memory you have set aside for System RAM.
The list shows which applications are open and how much System Ram Memory they are using. You can close applications from this list by highlighting the application and pressing (F6) (Close).
INDIRECTLY INCREASE SYSTEM RAM WITH A MEMORY CARD
Adding a memory card to your HP Palmtop, or buying the 1MB version of the 95LX or 2MB version of the 100/200LX, does not add System RAM memory to your Palmtop. However, a memory card or more internal memory does let you set the System RAM to its maximum (636K on the 100/ 200LX, 626K on the 1MB version of the 95LX, 394K on the 512K version of the 95LX).
