If it is saying low memory as in referance to the systems memory (RAM) then you have too many processes going at one time a good way to try to do this one is look on the bottom of your screen on the task bar, close anything that does not need to be open this will ushally fix this error

if you are getting low memory on your hard drive.
have internet explorer opened up and go to tools on the top menu and then go to internet options and then delete you browsing history and then your cookies and temp internet files and whatever else internet related. Also uninstall any programs that you have not used in the last 30 days.

if you have alot of music or videos on your computer burn them off or delete them free up as much space as possible.

hope this helps and if you clarify for me of the low memory if its due to ram or hard drive space then I can give you some more tips ontop of that as well specific to the issue.

Low memory usually refers to the RAM. Low space refers to the Hard Drive. You might have too many applications/programs running at the same time on your laptop. Or have an application or program that is using up too much memory. Viruses/Spyware sometimes do this to put your computer in a state that is not usable.

So what you can do is add more RAM. And check your "Task Manager" for applications and/or programs that is using too much RAM. Look under the column "Mem Usage"

The computer has nothing on it at all! And when I check the system it only says its got 8gb of memory, when it should be 80! So I think it might be the Hard drive itself!!

Low on space

There are 3 different type of software updates. The manacturers software update, service carrier software update, and the operating system software update. The only software specifically made for your phone is the manufacturers software. For instance a samsung galaxy on att. The samsung software is the only one made exclusive. The operating system software (android) and carrier software (att) are not meant specifically for the galaxy but a wide range of phones. When this happens there are incompatibilities that occur because the software isn't made for your phone and the update is usually a lot bigger software file then the previous version. This is the reason your phone can not update. A lot of people think updates are good for your phone, but in reality they aren't optimized and actually cause your phone to slow down if the update is for the operating system. Use the software that came orginally with your phone.

Did you save music files on phone memory? If yes , it is time to move it to your memory card. Also check for other big files that still keep in phone memory. If able , just move also your theme files to memory card. Move / delete also old messages files, games (if any), etc in phone memory.

Like computer, your phone need enough space for caching.

Hope this helps.

My acer aspire 5600 warned that I am running out of memory. My "D" drive says there is 30g of free space. How do I use it?

I think the computer actually said you were running low on Virtual Memory ... memory is the physical ram installed in your machine ... virtual memory is an area of hard drive the computer uses to store data when in runs out of "real" memory .....hard drive space is nothing to do with memory.

Ok, that got that cleared up :-) .... now the quickest way to get over low virtual memory problems is to install more RAM. For XP you should really have a minimum of 512mb .... 1gb is probably optimum. For Vista you should really have a minimum of 2gb.

So if your laptop has less than 512mb(xp) or 2gb(vista), the first thing to do would be to upgrade the memory.

Virtual memory problems should only ever crop up when you are running multiple applications .... so just try and keep the amount of programs you have running to a minimum. Instead of just minimizing programs, try to close them down to save memory.

Okay just to tell you the PS3 has 5 gbs already taken up on it.
I think its because the memories of the Saved Files you have on the Ps3 is usually a big amount of room on the PS3. Btw the Ps3 has updates so if you have a low amount of GBs its probably cuz of updates you should have about 48 GB of room left on the Ps3 try deleting the saved Files or try looking at how big the saved Files are.

Your Welcome
