Low on Memory when memory is available

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have a desktop with 2 GB Inter Core Duo processor. 2 GB ram and 180 GB hard drive. I am using Windows 7 as my operating system. There are 2 things happening on frequent basis. When I boot my system it gets stuck on the first screen for about 5 minutes and then when I start an application it gives me a pop up (Low on Memory). As I never use heavy applications and when I check my memory usage it is also available up to 70%. I have tried different remedies but still I am unable to overcome this problem.

I have also experimented the same problem, so what I did,  I just increased the Virtual Memory cache to maximum 6144, which might avoid the problem for you as well. However that not the permanent solution.

You need to check you’re RAM as well whether that is working perfectly or not. If RAM is okay then it’s a Virtual memory problem is not any physical RAM problem. You can also check your running programs through Task Manager, and if any program found running which you are not using you can End the process of that program by right clicking on that program and select End Process.
