Hi Ronnie.  I'm new to Mathematica, so I'm going through all of the 
messages for the past week to learn what I can from experienced people.  
I tried your problem just to see what I could see.

When input a certain way, it returned an answer of Infinity!  (The sign 
for infinity, actually.)  I tried to input the following line exactly as 
it is below.  It simply returned the same thing--as you said.

Limit[e^x/x^3, x->Infinity]

BUT, instead of typing it out the way I had to in this text message, I 
used the template (that has Pi, e, Sqrt symbols, etc on it) to input 
e^x.  When I did this, it returned the correct answer of Infinity.
