Photo Gallery malfunction.."not enough memory error"


Z

zultar

To all,

Whenever I try to open up a photo using photo gallery the following error is
displayed: " the picture cannot be displayed. You might not have enough
memory available." Photo gallery is currently set up as my default viewer
for all my pic's and when I dbl click on any picture file to be viewed,
photo gallery locks up with no picture. you can see the menus and toolbars,
but no picuture. The slide show feature works, but I cannot preview my
pictures. When I right click on a photo file and select "open with" I
noticed that there is two photo gallery options?? one will lock up like I
explained above, and the other will open the photo gallery with all my
thumbnails of my picures folders displayed.. when I double click on a pic
in there, it will not display either.......Is there a way to uninstall and
reinstall only photo gallery?? I have tried just about everything and was
wondering if anyone had any suggestions..

System:

AMD A2-5000
2gb RAM
2 GeForce 8600gt (SLI)
200gb HD
Windows VISTA Premium (up to date)

Hi zultar,

Is this problem seen for a particular image file type (say, .JPG), or for all other types also? If it's a per file-type problem, try this:

1. Download FileExtInfo.zip from here:
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/fileextinfo.htm

2. Unzip the utility and extract the files to Desktop.
3. Double-click "FileExtInfo.exe" to run it.
4. Select the file type from the list box
5. Click "View file association report"
6. Copy the contents of the report and include it in your reply.

This is a problem for all files. Everything works like it's suppose to for
all file types, however I cannot get my pictures to preview. Photo gallery
just hangs with a little blue circle and than the error pops up. I have to
clikc the back to gallery button to get it back.. Photo gallery will play
videos though.

It sure feels like it's something simple. but I'm pulling my hair out.

Thanks for the reply

Zultar,

See if additional information about the error is recorded in the Event Log. To open the Event Viewer, click Start/type "eventvwr.msc" and press {ENTER}. See if there are any events (related to Photo Gallery) registered in the Application log.
