Fatal Error happening randomly with Matlab computing language

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -


I have an issue that I can’t begin explaining because I do not really understand why it happens in the first place. The problem is that there is an error that occurs when I start my computer. I have been playing around with Matlab computing language and maybe this has something to do with the error. I need experts to shed light on this please.

Fatal Error happening randomly with Matlab computing language


If the error on MATLAB happens randomly then it is probably caused by a minor problem. Check your computer’s physical memory. MATLAB requires at least 1 GB of RAM though it recommends using 2 GB maybe for a more optimized processing. If the installed RAM on your computer is below 1 GB let’s say 768 MB or lesser, then this is probably what’s causing the problem.

You need to add more RAM to fix it. Not all programs can rely on the page file because of a low physical memory. There are applications that will require more RAM because of the speed. It is quite slower when using only the page file because data are being pulled out from the hard drive and not from RAM directly.

You should also check if your operating is supported. Since I’m not familiar with your operating system based on the screenshot, just read the supported platforms. For Microsoft Windows, it supports Windows Server 2003 R2 Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2012, Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows XP 64-bit Service Pack 2, Windows Vista Service Pack 2, Windows 7 Service Pack 1, and Windows 8.

For Mac OS X, MATLAB supports Mac OS X 10.7.4+ Lion until 10.8 Mountain Lion. For Linux, it works on Debian 6.x, SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11.3+, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS including 12.10 and 13.04. If your operating system is mentioned among the operating systems, just try reinstalling the program on your computer.

The error is probably caused by a corrupted file or other conflicts in the system. Other possible causes are the updates being installed on your computer like what Automatic Update does in Microsoft Windows. But if in case your platform is not included above, then you have an incompatible program. Try upgrading to one of the supported operating systems to use MATLAB properly.
