Runtime errors 7 and 1001 stating
‘out of memory’ are some of the most common. Most of these errors can be fixed by downloading SlimCleaner Plus. Among the
four standard sections of computer memory, these errors are usually
referring to the conventional memory but sometimes it maybe referring
to other sections of memory or even the total memory itself.
Here are some causes for the error
and their solutions.
Computer needs to be
rebooted: Out of memory errors can often be fixed just by
rebooting the computer. Before trying anything else, reboot the
computer and see if it fixes the problem.
Not enough memory installed:
Make sure that your computer meets the system requirement of the
program that you are trying to run. The system requirements for the
program will usually be found on one of the sides of the box that
the software was included in or in product documentation.
Memory management issue:
Some programs require that memory management be installed and
some don’t. If you are using a memory management program, try
uninstalling it as it could be the cause of the issue.
Not enough disk storage:
Ensure that your computer’s hard drive has at least has
100-500 MB of free space. If you have less than that, it may be
possible that the computer’s swap file cannot expand in size
as needed due to low disk space availability.
To determine the available free
space on your hard drive, open ‘My Computer’ (Windows 95,
98, NT, 2000, ME and XP users) or ‘Computer’ (Windows
Vista and 7 users). Here, right-click on the drive you want to check
the free space of and click on ‘Properties’. The window
that will show up will display the used space, free space and total
capacity of the drive.
Software issue: If you
keep on encountering out of memory issues with the program that you
are trying to run, it is quite possible that the program itself may
have an issue. Check that you all the available updates and patches
for the program. If the problem still persists, contact the
program’s developer or vendor for additional support.
Bad memory: If none of
the above solutions help fix the memory issues that you are
experiencing, perhaps it’s the computer’s memory that’s
at fault. Bad or failing memory can cause memory errors in programs
and sometimes even crash the entire computer.
Here’s how you can check for
bad memory. First, if you have recently installed some new memory
modules, remove them from the RAM sink temporarily and check if you
are still experiencing the problem with your previous memory modules.
There are also some software
programs to test your memory. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, a
Memory Diagnostics tool is present which can be accessed by clicking
on Start and typing ‘memory’ in the run command line.
This tool will ask you if you want to restart immediately or test the
memory upon the next restart. Whichever you choose, the computer will
run a memory test the next time it’s booted.
You could also try Memtest86
(www.memtest86.com) which is a
free memory tester.
If you have access to other
computers memory, swap your memory modules with those to check if
your memory is at fault. Also, if your computer’s memory works
in the other computer properly, it’s likely that you have a
motherboard or other hardware issue and not a memory issue.
