Getting frequent Out Of Memory Alerts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Getting "out of memory" alerts a lot recently even though I have 2gb of ram running an
    XP-SP3 Home Edition System which I've been told is plenty.

    Would appreciate any advise on how to correct this problem as I'm on a tight budget right now and can't afford a new computer.

    The alerts have come even when i am only running 1 application (that I am aware of anyway) as well as with many things running (which is more understandable to me).

  • I suggest increase the size of your paging file.  To do this, right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab.  Under the Performance section, click Settings, and click on the Advanced tab.

    Under the Virtual Memory section, note what the page file size is and post back here.
