"Close programs to prevent information loss" error. Is Vista hogging my RAM?
Posted 13 July 2008 - 11:09 PM
Toshiba A200 Laptop
Windows Vista Ultimate (Re-installed once)
2 Gigs of DDR2 RAM
1.5 Ghz Core 2 Duo Processor
128 Mb Intel HD 2400 GC
200 Gig HD 7200 RPM
I know my system can play it, but it just maxes out my RAM somehow. (It uses about 600mb of RAM. Does this sound right?)
If anyone could tell me what I can do to fix this problem, it would be greatly appreciated. I`ve already been to a different site but no one answered my question. I just want to play my game, so please help! I`m seriously considering dual-booting XP, just so I can play. This problem is making me very sad, and it happend just as I was starting to like Vista. :_|

2 gigs is more than enough for running that game. A usage of 600mb by battlefield2142 seems fine to me, no problem with that.
I think you are getting this error because of low page file. What size of paging file have you kept ?
Posted 13 July 2008 - 11:56 PM
Paging File 1238M / 1984M
I hope this is what you are looking for
Here is some other stuff it says, just for the heck of it:
Processes 73 (I guess I was wrong before)
Kernel memory (MB)
Physical memory (MB)
And my memory usage right now is 1.10 GB and my CPU usage is about 4%
Thank you so much for posting! I hope this is the correct info!
