When you get that message, use Task Manager (with "Show processes from all users" selected) and Microsoft/Sysinternals RAMMap to see what's using up all your memory. – Karan Jun 24 '13 at 8:35
What is the "it" that displays this message? And what is the exact message? Are you sure it's referring to RAM and not virtual memory, video memory, or some other resource? – David Schwartz Jun 24 '13 at 11:44
this message can happen if you've disabled the pagefile. – magicandre1981 Jun 24 '13 at 17:20
yes when i tried running halo the message is displayed "you do not have enough virtual memory or RAM to run the game" – ankan baruah Jun 25 '13 at 3:53
is it possible that my PC is virus infected that is reducing my RAM capacity? – ankan baruah Jun 25 '13 at 4:00
