Virtual memory is the space of your HDD that Windows uses as if it would be the RAM space. This part of memory is highly used on any Windows system. You have to get enough memory for running the game. Also, make sure that the memory is free.

1. Go to Start menu >> Control Panel >> System and Security >> System.

2. From the left pane, select “Advanced system settings”.

3. Under “Performance” section, click “Settings”.

4. Open “Advanced” tab.

5. Under “Adjust for best performance of:”, select “Programs”.

6. Under “Virtual memory”, click “Change”.

7. Uncheck “Automatically manage paging file size for all drives”.

8. Select “Custom size”.

9. Enter the size of the page file size in both “Initial size” and “Maximum size” field. Both should be similar. Recommended size is 8GB = 8 x 1024MB = 8192MB.

10. Click “Set”.

11. Press “OK”.

12. Restart your PC.

Now, check if the game runs perfectly.

Also, another solution could be playing the game under another user account. Create another user account, and try to run the game under the user.

If you have the Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop shipped with a factory installed operating system, then I guess the problem would have to be the installed operating system. The PC game, FIFA 15, is designed to run on x64 Microsoft Windows 7 requiring a minimum of 4 GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 or AMD Phenom X4 9750 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 or AMD Radeon HD 5770 graphics card, and 15 GB hard drive space.

The Lenovo Yoga 2 laptop ships with a preinstalled x64 Microsoft Windows 8.1 [Professional or not], Intel Core i5 or Intel Core i7 processor, and either 4 GB or 8 GB DDR3L RAM. With these specifications, your processor and memory may support the game but not the operating system. There is no way you can run and play it on your computer.

If you want to play it, you need to install a much older operating system, x64 Microsoft Windows 7. Your laptop’s specifications are enough to support the game. It’s only the operating system that needs to be changed. If downgrading your operating system is not an option, you probably want to consider installing x64 Microsoft Windows 7 as a second operating system making your laptop dual-boot.
