If you could post the full error message we can provide me useful help. I assume you may have uploaded a file too big to resize. You may have to go into FTP and upload a smaller version of the file into the assets folder.

So the file is just too big for SilverStripe to do anything with. You'll need to login to your server via FTP and manually change the file to a smaller filesize. 128mb of ram should allow you to handle pretty large images so your file could be quite large and resizing down in photoshop to 1000x1000 would be good enough. 3.1 has a patch (?) to stop the backend from trying to resize super large files.
