I was normally working on my Adobe Photoshop 7 and suddenly at next session the computer rejects to initialize this programme giving reason of not enough RAM memory despite my computer having 256 MB of RAM, and though I have not kept anything unsaved on my computer. Why this problem, can you help me.
Please check if it is written "low virtual memory".
then use any cleaner software which help to increase the virtual memory of your computer.
And if the problem accured in your ram then tell to your hardware person.

Re: RAM memory and Adobe Photoshop 7
The solution is to increase your virtual memory size...
Considering Win XP SP2 system.. the following procedure may be used to increase ur virtual memory / page file size...
Right click 'My Computer' --> Properties --> 'Advanced' Tab --> 'Performance' Settings --> 'Advanced' Tab --> 'Virtual Memory' Change --> Type in a custom size of 1024MB or something like that (not too much) --> Press 'Set' --> Close the windows --> restart -->DONE!!!

Without your computer specs, it is hard to judge if this is a bug in Photoshop Elements 3.0 or your system causing the issue.
If you are using Windows 7/Vista, please press Shift+Control+Esc to enter your task manager while running Photoshop Elements 3.0. Click Performance. Under Physical Memory, view the "Available." If this number is low, saw under 1,000, your system most likely needs more RAM. In Windows XP, press Control+Alt+Del ONCE to access your Task Manager.
Try calling the company and tell them you bought the program and the serial no. doesn't work. If that doesn't work do a your favorite search engine serial for photoshop elements 7. Warning, do this can cause harm to your computer, with adware, mailware.
I'm sorry but the only way you're going to be able to use CS2 is if you either use less programs on the computer so that you can open it without the error message coming up, or downgrade back to Photoshop 4.0 or buy more RAM for your computer. Adobe Photoshop requires quite a bit of RAM so really, it would be wise to upgrade if you want to continue using their products.
Quite a dilemma. You need to be in Photoshop to adjust the memory preference settings. The memory preference settings prevent you from getting into Photoshop. Catch-22.
The solution: Change the settings through the .ini file.
Important: If you have questions or need clarification at any point, stop and ask. You are my eyes, I want you to understand the process. OK?
Just to clarify a few things (to rule out other possibilities), please respond with the answers to the following:
This just started happening? (No recent changes or upgrades to 7.0?)
What is the size of your hard drive? (Right click the drive icon in My Computer and select Properties. It will show a pie chart. I'm looking for Capacity)
Same place, What is the available space?
Any other recent events that might have something to do with memory usage or disk utilization? (even remotely possible)
Ram - How many megabytes (Giga?)
Are you comfortable navigating with Windows Explorer?
OK, The objective:
Find the initialize file (.ini) that Photoshop uses to save its settings (general preferences, memory, file locations, etc.).
Once found, change the default settings, specifically those involving memory usage, errors and so on.
This should allow the application to complete its initialization.
The changes: Either you can do it with notepad or you can copy and paste it into a comment back to me. Then I make the changes which you put back into the file. Which ever, I prefer to see the whole file, in case something else catches my eye. Don't worry, it's pretty short.
