Hello,

You have used the maximum amount of RAM plus virtual memory that was

assigned in your system.

Solution 1:

Stop non-essential programs from running. You can find the which program

is taking much memory in "Task Manager".

Hold Ctrl and Shift keys and press Esc key. "Task Manager" will be opened.

Click on "Processes" tab and there you can find the which application is taking

high "Memory Usage" under "Mem Usage" Column . If you want to find which

application is taking much "Virtual Memory" then click on "View" --> Select

Columns... --> Check the checkbox "Virtual Memory Size".


Remove the unnecessary items from the startup.

Click on Start --> Run --> Type msconfig and click on OK --> Click on "Startup"

tab ---> uncheck the checkbox for unnecessary applications.


Solution 2:

Increase the "Virtual Memory"

Click on Start --> Run --> Type sysdm.cpl and click on OK.

Click on "Advanced" tab --> In "Performance" section, click on "Settings" -->

Click on "Advanced" tab ---> click on "Change" button --> Change the Initial size

value and the Maximum size value to a higher value --> Click "Set" button -->

Click OK --> OK -->OK.

Solution 3:

You can allow Windows to manage your virtual memory,

Follow the steps in solutions 2 and instead of changing the Initial size

value and the Maximum size values, select the option "System managed size" -->

Click on "Set" button --> Click OK --> OK -->OK.

Good Luck.
