Not enough storage is available to process this command error (and solution)

Hi,

For quite a while, I've had a problem with video calling, with the error "Not enough storage is available to process this command".

I found that changing the IRPStackSize (in my case, to 30) fixed this problem.

I'm running Windows XP SP3, and Skype 5.3.0.116.

 

Check out the MS KB article - search for Article ID: 285089 in Microsoft support.  (can't post html links in this forum).

 

Hope this helps someone!

 

Marcus

Re: Not enough storage is available to process this command error (and solution)

Please follow these Steps:

 

1. Only do Step 1 if you are on WIN7:

 

Stop Skype.

 

Be sure that Compatibility Mode is not enabled (right-click on Skype shortcut icon/launcher and select Properties >> Compatibility) - for Windows 7 users only.

 

Try to launch Skype.

 

2. If Step 1 fails or you are NOT using WIN7 do:

 

Open an Internet Explorer browser, and go to msn.com, what happens?

 

If it fails, Please do the instructions below. Using your Windows Control Panel, please do:

 

Internet Options -> Advanced Tab Please click the "Reset" button.

 

Then, Go to the Connections Tab.

 

Make sure that the only checkbox checked is "Automatically detect settings", then click the "OK" button.

 

Close any open Internet Explorer browser windows, open a new IE browser window and try msn.com again. What happens? If it works, please stop/start Skype What happens?

 

3. If Step 2 does NOT solve the problem:

 

Please install the beta version using the instructions below:

 

You can install the Current beta release by doing this from the top of this page:

 

Get Skype -> Windows -> Choose the beta release, please do NOT remove what you already have installed, simply, install over.

 

These instructions have worked for many and is the quickest thing to try to resolve issues such as this.

 

Also, what operating system are you on?

 

What is the Make and Model of your computer?

 

Do you have all Windows updates and updates to any hardware devices by the manufacturers?

My original post was to alert people with the "not enough storage available" problem that by using registry editor, and changing IRPStackSize (in my case, to 30) fixed the problem for me.  I wasn't reporting a problem, but documenting a solution!

Yes, I was trying to see, if by installing the beta, without modifying the registry also resolves this issue.

Re: Not enough storage is available to process this command error (and solution)

I have recently developed this problem and tried everything to stop it from happening... even raised the IRPStackSize to 50, which I am told is the maximum.  Does anyone have another solution to this annoying problem.  I'm running Windows XP SP3, and Skype 5.3.32.111

Windows 7 Home. Compatibility mode is disabled, but the problem still occurs on a video call after ~5-10 minutes. Any ideas?

 

Skype version: 5.10.0.116

Re: Not enough storage is available to process this command error (and solution)

i just now ran into this problem but only when trying to call my mother.

 

after i quit skype, i found an open instance of a phone call to mother already up and running:  it looks like the call from last night didn't disconnect properly.  

 

i'm thinking that trying to start a second instance when one was already memory-resident is what caused this problem, as i was able to call my daughter no problem.
