    Windows 8.1 Low Memory

    When playing games on my laptop, i've been getting warnings that the game (Chivalry and Red Orchestra 2) Use to much memory and should be shut down. I have a Intel HD 4000 graphics and a Nvidia 720m cards in my laptop. Also with 8 GB's of RAM.

    i've read alot of these problems on the internet and can't be able to find the fix anywhere. Does anyone know what's causing this issue because it's becoming pretty annoying?

    Hello BesottedOrb, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Are you getting real low on hard drive space?

    In addition, double check your page file settings to make sure that it is turned on and not set to low. It's best to allow the page file to be managed by the system instead of setting a size of your own though.

    If the page file is turned off or set to low, this could give you low memory errors.

    Hope this helps,

Lack of needed memory on flash memory Win 8 machines
I've been looking at the Surface Pro and other tablet/laptop convertible machines fitted with Win 8. The top-end models usually offer only flash memory in stead of a hard drive. The standard 128 GB flash memory available seems hopelessly inadequate for storing Win 8, a full range of programs and a...
