SAMBA share- only one computer has access at a time

Hey all, having a slight issue with SAMBA that's bugging me no end.

Basically as the title says I can only connect to samba from one PC at a time, to connect with a new PC I need to restart the service or disconnect all users via Webmin. The actual error on my windows 7 and XP PCs is "Insufficient system resources to complete the request". From google I gather its a samba RAM issue. I run a headless Debian server with 8GB RAM in a dual core micro server. From what I can gather the server is only using 2.79GB RAM (munin says 2.79 as committed). I'm currently at a complete loss so does anyone have any ideas?
I'm only new at Linux so please ignore any dumb questions from me! Thanks in advance.

Sorry guys just realised this is in the wrong thread area.

Well I've finally solved the problem. I decided to purge samba and start from scratch (again) only this time when I tried to reinstall it there were a heap of dependency problems. After fixing all of these and reconfiguring it everything works wonderfully- multiple computers all accessing samba at the same time!
Not too sure whats happened, the server has been quite happy for months and when I reinstalled samba two days ago everything went smoothly- no dependency problems. Anyway its working so I'm happy.
