FS9 On Windows 7 Ultimate - Insufficient Memory Error
Mar 21, 2012
I have a Intel i5 2500k 3.3Ghz, with 4GB memory running on windows 7 ultimate 64 bits. My problem is, since I changed the OS to this "more advanced", I cannot play Flight Simulator 2004 without this error message that closes the game. "Insufficient memory, please check your hard drive..." My system only has Flight Simulator installed, plus microsoft office and Avg antivirus (not counting with all the system updates, drivers etc). I don't understand this problem, because before this OS, I had Win XP 32 bits, with a lot more programs and addons installed and running, and I never had this problem...even with all the graphics pumped up to the max in the game. My graphic card is Asus En9800GT nvidia with 1gb ddr3 and HD with 400GB still to use (same board and HD used with XP).
About a week or so ago my asus laptop messed up and i got stuck doing a clean install of win 7. At first it would go straight to 100% on copying windows files and wouldn't do anything else so i reformated the drive. After that it started saying i had insufficient memory on the drive even though i have two 100 gb partitions.
Just installed office 2013, when I open word I get that error. I read up and one article said"So, following the second set of instructions, we created Old.dotx in the above folder, rebooted the Remote Desktop server, and fired up Microsoft Word The error did not reappear, though there still was not a Normal.dotx in thefolder.
I bought "Far Cry 3" through Steam.I have been getting the error message: "You do not have sufficient access privileges to run the game. Please contact your administrator."Since then I have been trying to fix this issue several hours everyday, opened a support ticket with both Ubisoft and Steam. However no matter what I have done the error is still the same.I have tried to: Run the game as "hidden administrator". Given ownership of "C:" to myself. Changed Steam.exe, farcry3.exe, farcry3_d3d11.exe, Uplay.exe and UbisoftGameLauncher.exe to "Run as administrator" for every user. I have given "Full Control" to "Everyone, SYSTEM, Users (MyComputerNameusers) and Administrator (MyComputerNameAdministrators)" in the Steam and Ubisoft folders. I let Steam, Uplay and Far Cry 3 through the HIPS function (eset nod32). I always have UAC turned off

I'm running Win7 Ultimate 32 bit and I believe it's using too much memory. When the system is idle and not even running Steam or Firefox, memory usage is 1.00 GB out of my 2.00 available. I run FRAPS and DisplayFusion (I have two monitors) in the background but they amount to roughly 20MB.I have also disabled most non-essential services as well as unnecessary boot programs. Usually I have ~45 processes running, 15 of which are user processes.I have already made efforts to streamline my OS, and the total memory usage of all my user processes amounts to just under 400 MB (with Firefox and Steam running). That's nice, and it's about what XP idled on.What the hell does Win7 do with 500-600 MB of phantom memory?
I will start off by stating my relevant PC Specs for this thread:-
Asus P5B Deluxe MoBo Intel Dual Core E6600 @ 2.40GHz GeForce 7900 GS 512Mb 2 x 1GB DDR2 800MHz Corsair Value RAM (original) in Yellow Slots A1 & B1 2 x 1GB DDR2 800MHz Corsair Gaming RAM (NEW) in Black Slots A2 & B2
So I have just installed 2 extra GBs of RAM to bring my total to 4GB. After a successful boot and then checking my 'System' info Windows states 4.00GB of memory is installed but only 2.94GB is usable.Therefore I went ahead into my BIOS to enable the 'Memory Remap Feature'.However on reboot the PC gets to the 'Starting Windows' screen and doesn't get any further. The Windows logo doesn't start to appear. It just restarts going through all the usual screens again, eventually giving two options of:-
Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally. The repair never works and Windows will never start normally again until I return to the BIOS to disable the mem remap.I reset the CMOS to Factory Default settings and tried again but did nothing. Also I have never updated the BIOS from the original version as I'm a bit scared to do so.I have looked hear for info on voltages and clocking but didn't get anywhere. Well got an overclock at 3.60Hz but only ran in Safe Mode. Obviously this is slightly irrelevant the above but was just trying stuff out and trying to learn more.
I am running W7 Pro as a sole user with full Administrators rights on a new PC. I have been installing software such as Word 2002, my scanner and similar but hit a problem when attempting to install Pinnacle Studio Plus 9 when I received the message that I need Administrators rights to install software when I put the CD into the drive. I know that Pinnacle Studio Plus 9 is identified as being for up to XP; could this be the reason for the message? I am unsure as to whether XP Mode has been enabled as yet but am aware that W7 Pro has this facility.
I have windows 7 64 bit and also running a ssd. Just a few days ago I've started to have an issue where after my computer is running for a couple hours all processes continually increase the amount of memory they are using until I get an out of memory error. Here is a pic of it around 75%. I have 8 gigs of ram (kingston) that before this never went above 4gigs of use, so not sure what is causing this suddenly.
I just finished running chkdsk with switches /f and /r on an external drive because Windows backup/restore couldn't use it to store a system image and recommended that I run it. It took a couple of hours and then the program exited with the message 'Insufficient diskspace to fix volume bitmap'. I don't see how diskspace was insufficient as there are 79GB free out of the total 149GB, why did chkdsk say that?
Just bought a used computer yesterday. Came with 4 x 1 Gig ram memory. It's an HP Pavillion desktop with an Asus motherboard in it. The motherboard itself can handle up to 16 Gig (x4 slots at 4 gig a piece) so that's not the problem. The problem is, everything I try to boot it with anything more than one chip in (1 gig) it runs, but nothing appears on the monitor.Just acts like it's going to boot and never does. I've tried using two and four sticks both, properly placed, and same error.
Sometimes when I Open up an Excel attachment in outlook a message comes up "insufficient resources" I am using Windows 7 operating system & Excel 2007. The same problem occurs when I have several Excel files open and run a macro
I have 8 ram slots with one gig sticks in each which gives me 8 gigs of ram, Which my computer uses completely. I recently purchased 8 more gigs on two sticks, but when I install them it gives me a memory mismatch error, but it stills starts up. When I go to my computer properties menu it says 14 gigs ram (4 usable). Like I said there are 8 slots, 4 with white push tabs, 4 with black push tabs. I tried multiple combinations with the ram. Sometimes the computer would beep and not Start, others it would start up but still give me the mismatch errors. Need to update BIOS, Which I did. I have to change my BIOS settings to "Enable dynamic memory remap", but the problem is that I can't get into my BIOS. For some reason windows 7 isn't giving me a BIOS option (DEL) on the POST screen. It only gives me the option of going into system settings F2 or Boot menu F12. I tried ESC F1-F12 DEL END...to no avail.

I just bought a new Windows 7 DVD; I insert the disc and waited until "Press any key to boot from CD". It took really long time and then it gave an error "Memory overflow error". My windows vista disc is working normally but windows 7 gives error.
I'm using Outlook 2007 on a Windows 2007 OS with a gmail account (pop3). When I send and receive I get the error message "reported error (0x8007000E) : 'Out of memory or system resources. Close some windows or programs and try again.'" I don't have any other windows or programs open... Don't know what to do,
Running Windows 7 64-bit. Was using Skype successfully until I got an alert to update. So I started to update and during the process there was a problem with installing, so I cancelled. However, canceling also deleted my Skype and I am having trouble installing the latest version. Specifically, I'm getting and error message that says..."there are insufficient privileges and that I should log in as an administrator." I am logged in as the one and only administrator. Also, another error message said that Skype couldn't create the folder: "C:programdatamicrosoftwindowsstart menuprogramsskype? By the way, I've also have somewhat similar (administrator problems) problems installing ABBYY, Silverlight.
I own a Dell XPS M1710 running Windows7 (5 years old). The graphics card has already been replaced once (after 1 year) due to a well know heating problem (made tolerable by cooling pad). I get Blue screen and Memory Parity Error some of the times I start up but mostly it freezes at the black screen point. Memory check gives all clear and I have tried swapping out all of the RAM with (working) modules but still get the same error message. Tried updating the graphics driver, no change. Tried disabling the Graphics device in Device manager and this had a slightly different blue screen but the same basic result.I suspect the graphics card Nvidia Go 7950 GTX because the fault first happened while playing an MP4 file.
recently from past one month i am having low memory problem. i need to restart my laptop and every things ok for sometime. i have kaspersky internet security and also i did a malware check using malware bytes. nothing came up. i also notice that when playing movies in Internet or vlc the computer the video seems to freeze for about two seconds and back to normal. i am adding the dump files and also a screenshot of resource monitor. my laptop seems very slow for the past month as well. i did a windows memory diagnostics and everything was fine.
here are the specs of my laptop: make: hp pavilion dv-3 2360ee processor: intel i3 m330 2.13 ghz ram: 3gb system: 64 bit
I am trying to use all the 4 GB of RAM that I have for my computer so I decided to "upgrade" to 64-bit. The only problem is that when I boot from the installation CD I get a memory management error. I know that my CPU is 64-bit capable as well as my video card. As for everything else I am not sure of. What is a way to fix this problem because I desperately need to upgrade to 64-bit.
I updated my computer last night using MS update. 250MB of updates and now I'm receiving the error message that there is not enough memory for win live mail to start (0x80041161).
I have around 2GB of free RAM, and the is plenty of HD space.....
Does anyone know how to fix this problem rather than re-installing the software? I have lots of mail that I would rather not be without, and I'm concerned that if I uninstalll Live mail, I'll end up without my mails.
(anyone know what update causes this?) I could just remit that update if I knew which one. Using Windows 7 Home Pro 64. All my updates have been from Win Update in the past.
I have built a new PC, I had it working at the start. for couple of days. i started then to update and install drivers off the chipset support disc. I have a ASUS P5G4IT-M, the installion of these drivers seemed to go alrite. Then when I downloaded the updates through windows and tried to restart the PC it wouldn't restart. i tried repairing the error. The first time it said windows had repaired the errors but it still didn't work. so i tried it again, it keeping saying that I recently attached a device to the computer, such as a camera or portable music device. which i didn't. then i says remove and restart. When i restart after the windows repair it goes down the list of files loading in safe mode and it stops when loading some of the drivers. Is there some way of clearing this error or wiping the memory off my hardrive and loading windows again onto the PC??
i have been using windows 7 for a long time and it works great. but i have a problem. when i install steam it works perfect but when it tryes to update steam and it reach 20 % it says ERROR Steam.exe (main exception): ERROR: deleted steam.exe but the file is still there, so i try to run it as admin but there is no function that allows me to run steam or steam install as a admin. all other things i can run as a admin except steam i guess. and my UAC is not disabled its on recommended settings.
I've recently built a new gaming computer and starting from fresh install with windows 7, I've got tons of "dumping physical memory" blue screens of death. I've tried updating all the drivers, I let windows 7 do all of the automatic updates, scan my pc with avg tuneup pro for errors, etc. None of these have worked it from crashing either while multitasking, playing battlefield 3, or the computer just sitting there.
