Lsass.exe - Insufficient System Error

Lsass.exe Error - insufficient system resources exist to complete the API

I encountered this error a while ago in a client's pc. Windows will load as usual but when it reach the log on screen, this error will appear:

Lsass.exe
Insufficient system resources exist to complete the API.


At first, i thought that it was just an ordinary error caused by a virus. So i tried to log on using safe mode but the machine restarts before reaching the log on screen.

I searched the internet for a possible solution and it turned out that this error is caused by very low hard disk space. I asked the owner if it is the case and he said yes.

So I boot the PC using the Windows XP installer CD, and go straight to the command prompt. I deleted some files from the C: drive, deleted a total of 50+ mb, then restarted the pc to check if it is already sufficient for a boot start.

It was successful and the PC get past the log on screen. I uninstall some programs that is not important and also moved the My Documents folder to another partition. Mission accomplished.

How To: Port Forward Globe Broadband's Prolink H9200

Here's a step by step guide on how to Port Forward Globe's Prolink H9200 to be use in Utorrent.

Port forwarding in Prolink H9200 is a little bit different in Hurricane 9300G, but it is as easy. Torrent downloads are greatly affected if you do not use port forwarding in Globe DSL.

Step 1. You need to set Port 80 in Utorrent for incoming connections. Any other port is blocked by Globe Broadband. Open up Utorrent, at the upper left menu, click on Options > Preferences.

A box will appear like the one below, put 80 on the box next to Port Used for Incoming Connections. And also, remove the check next to Enable UPnP port mapping


To enable Port Forwarding in Prolink Hurricane's H9200, you need to have Static IP address on your PC.

Go to your desktop, Right Click on My Network Places and then click on Properties. Something like the box below will appear, select Local Area Connection, right-click on it and then choose properties.


Double click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

Internet Protocol Property box will appear. Enter information like the box below:

Ip address: 192.168.1.3 (default assigned ip address when using dynamic ip)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

Preferred DNS server: 192.168.1.1



Now that you already configured Utorrent and your static IP address. It is now time to configure your modem. I will borrow pictures from fortforward.com

Open up your favorite browser like Mozilla firefox, Internet Explorer or Opera browser. Type in the address bar 192.168.1.1 (that is the default IP address of your modem)

A box will appear prompting you for your username and password. The default username is admin and the default password is password. This page will appear (click the picture to enlarge):

Click the Services button near the top of the page (click the picture to enlarge):

Select NAT Rule Entry from the NAT Options drop down box.

Click the Add button near the bottom of the page and enter these information, and then click submit.


Click the Close button near the bottom of the page.

Click the IP Filter link near the top of the page.

Select Low from the Security Level drop down box. Select Accept from the Public Default Action, Private Default Action and DMZ Default Action drop down box.

Click the Submit button near the bottom of the page.

Click the Admin button near the top of the page.

You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Commit & Reboot.

Click the Commit button near the bottom of the page.

Click the Reboot button near the bottom of the page.

And you're done.
