Adobe Photoshop CS4 Error: Not Enough RAM

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

I am a designer and I have been using Adobe Photoshop CS4 for a few months now. It’s been working quite fine ever since I started using it until last night as I was working on an illustration an error message keeps on popping out.

“Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended could not complete your request because there is not enough memory (RAM).”

I had no idea what was going on so I just checked the RAM of my computer to find out that it has not been used up and my Adobe Photoshop’s memory preference has been set to 60%. I tried optimizing my computer, deleting all the plug-ins that might be causing the problem but I still have the same issue. I can’t go on like this because my job is at stake.

I am using a brand new Toshiba A200 laptop computer with 4GB of RAM, running with Windows Vista 32 bit Operating System and a Dual Core Processor.

I hope somebody can help me.

Adobe Photoshop CS4 Error: Not Enough RAM


Try to following things:
Set the preference between 60-75. 60 is the minimum limit so you have to lift it up a bit.
See if any program like Mozilla or any other is consuming a lot of RAM space. Mostly what happens is that the program seems to be using few Mega RAM but in the background it is using a lot of RAM for swapping its tasks.
Try to check your hard disk for any possible bad sectors.
Memtest your RAM to figure out if there is any problem with the RAM. Download the Memtest, put it on a USB,plug into your computer and it will start automatically. You just have to set the USB boot first.
Also see if you have any older files that are still in the memory when you closed the Adobe Photoshop before using it again. There are some legacy files that remain in the memory.
