What a goose chase. Here"s one possible cause to check out quickly that does NOT involve rebooting in safe mode and all the other garbage you were asked to do:

Simple check questions:

Are you using a laptop AND using Power Options plan that tells your system to SLEEP or HIBERNATE when closing the lid?Did your previous user wait until the logon screen appeared BEFORE closing the lid?

If your yellowcomic.com are YES for 1. and NO for 2. then you solutions are either:

Do NOT close that lid until fully logged off, i.e., until the logon screen appears, orChange your Power Options (get there via Control Panel) plan to "Do Nothing" when the lid is closed. You probably want to do this ONLY when PLUGGED IN.

You are watching: System is running low on resources

Be patient and wait for the logon will work every time.

Hello GMacc,

Welcome to yellowcomic.com yellowcomic.com Forum!

a)Have you made any recent changes on the computer/

b)Are you logged in as administrator?

Try to log in as administrator and check if it works and verify if you’re receiving any error message.

Step 1:

I would suggest you to perform clean boot in safe mode check if you’re getting the same error message. To do so, please follow the steps below:

1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.2.Select Safe Mode when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.

Clean Boot will help you start your computer by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs so that you can determine whether a background program or any of the third party service is interfering with your program.

To find out which startup application is causing the issue. Please follow the steps below:

Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All yellowcomic.com Services check box, and then click Disable All.6. Click OK.7. When you are prompted, click Restart.

If the computer boots fine after clean boot, then there are some non yellowcomic.com applications causing the problem. To find out which application causing the problem refer from step 2 to step 6 in the article this is mentioned in the clean boot article.

Once you find out the application which is causing the issue, i would suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the application.
