iBook and word seems to always quit
I have a 1.2 GHz. 14 inch iBook with 512 mb. of ram, 256 of it being third party. Anyhow I am having a problem with Microsoft Word. When I type a lot of information at one time, go to save the document or try and use any kind of command cut, copy, paste the spinning wheel of death comes up. It then says that the application has unexpectedly quit and would I like to send a report. Also a couple of times when I try and save the document it says that there is not enough memory to save it. I have plenty of room on my harddrive, about 45 gigs so I dont see how that can be a problem. I run the activity monitor and the memory that word seems to be using is never above 50%. When the problems happen I have other programs such as Preview, iChat and Safari on. I am only using Word to type long documents and that is when it acts up. Any information with this problem would be very helpful. It is a pain because sometimes I loose a lot of information when the document quits or will not save. I have turned on the recover every minute option but I still loose stuff. Well again thanks for any help.
