Low Physical Memory

By geneguy ·
I am running win2000 with 128mb ram. I was trying to import a text file into access 2000. I get an error that I ran out of memory and I couldn't finish the import. I stopped most of the tasks running on the task bar. Still no go. Is there some settings I can do to tweak the performance so I don't get this error again?

I would be real interested in knowing what is sucking up all of your memory because I routinely run large Access2000 databases on a W2K workstation with only 81meg of RAM and I haven't seen an out of memory error since I installed it earlier this year.

You might want to try opening Task Manager just before you try this import, click on the Processes tab and seeing what is running and how much memory it is using (you can sort by memory by clicking on the column header). You might also take alook at your virtual memory settings and make sure you have an appropriate-sized swap file.

Try going to my computer, right click the c drive and select properties. In here it shows the amount of free space you have on your computer. If it is full try deleting un-needed things to free some memory. hope this helps.

Try looking into what you are using on your Quick Launch Task Bar.

This usually uses up a significant amount of RAM.
