This is a brief tutorial on how to resolve low memory pop-ups you may be receiving on your Windows computer.

“Your Computer Is Low On Memory” warnings happen when Windows has run out of space to put the data it needs to store when you’re running different applications. This can be either in the RAM modules in your computer, or also on the hard disk, when the free RAM has been filled up.

The following error message/dialogue box will appear:

On Windows 8/10:

“Your computer is low on memory. To restore enough memory for programs to work correctly, save your files and then close or restart all open programs.

On Windows 7:
Close programs to prevent information loss. Your computer is low on memory. Save your files and close these programs.

When your computer doesn’t have enough memory for all of the actions it’s trying to perform, Windows and your programs can stop working. To help prevent information loss, Windows will notify you when your computer is low on memory.

Your computer has two types of memory, random access memory (RAM) and virtual memory. All programs use RAM, but when there isn’t enough RAM for the program you’re trying to run, Windows temporarily moves information that would normally be stored in RAM to a file on your hard disk called a paging file. The amount of information temporarily stored in a paging file is also referred to as virtual memory. Using virtual memory—in other words, moving information to and from the paging file—frees up enough RAM for programs to run correctly.

Your computer is low on memory problems occur when your computer runs out of RAM and becomes low on virtual memory. This can happen when you run more programs than the RAM installed on the computer is designed to support. Low memory problems can also occur when a program doesn’t free up memory that it no longer needs. This problem is called memory overuse or a memory leak.

This tutorial should work for all major computer hardware manufactures that include Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10 in their products (Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, Toshiba, Lenovo, Samsung, and so forth).
