32GB of fucking ram and i get the fucking message that im running out of
memory and i need to close programs when i still have 6+GB of ram left!

video is correct and it will work, but how the fuck do i disable that
fucking error without turning on the pagefile?…

This keeps popping up when i’m playing Planetside 2 it’s really annoying I
thought 8GB of ram would be enough.

My gateway laptop had this problem after a certain amount of usage, just
all of a sudden it starting reporting high memory usage and to close apps.
Eventually it started rebooting the laptop.

Laptop has 4GB of RAM. I set the paging file to it’s max, but it did not
fix anything. After booting up, I went into Task Manager and found (1)
app (Task Mgr itself), @ 30 background processes and 20some Windows
processes; all of which added up to @ 205MB, or .205 GB which is @ 5% of
RAM. However, Task Mgr reported @ 90% of memory (RAM) being used??????

Something was causing Windows to think the vast majority of RAM was being
used, such that any app., especially with high graphics content, would make
Windows report “low on memory and close these programs” (all apps I was
running). What was making Windows think 90% of RAM was being used when no
apps were running, I have no idea.

Eventually the laptop did it’s own recovery operation (without any
prompting from me), and this cleared the problem up. The Task Mngr reports
only 15/20% of RAM memory being used when no apps are in progress. That’s
more like it. I wonder if something gets set in Windows software to cause
this low on memory problem, maybe by an app itself. Later if Windows is
reinstalled or recovers itself this “something” is “reset”, and allows
Windows to work as it did originally

Mine already says ‘system managed but since it says its using 3.8 out of 4
RAM then it must be doing something I just don’t understand how using word,
itunes and google can be so draining… Thanks by the way

jewish bunnyrabbits says:

still be a problem?
