No doubt you have witnessed different errors like "Out of memory" before. For example while browsing the Internet or launching an application.
Most of the time, it is a simple memory corruption. Windows mismanaged memory. Just turn off the computer, unplug the power cable. Wait 30 seconds, then change the position of your memory sticks by positioning them on different slots.
In general, this allows to reset the data possibly still contained in the memory and to make sure that Windows restarts on a good basis.
If the error message does not appear on every startup and you can still access Windows, but the message reappears regularly thereafter then try creating a memory dump:
- click on the Windows icon,
- type with your keyboard "Control Panel",
- on the right, choose "display by category",
- click on "System and security",
- click on "System",
- then "Advanced system settings",
- to the right of "Startup and recovery", click on "Settings",
- under "Write debug information", select "partial memory dump (256kb)",
- finally "OK"
One of the most common reasons is a graphics card driver update issue. This is especially true if, for example, with an Nvidia graphics card, you try to launch Nvidia GeForce Experience and you get an error message stating that the software cannot be launched with your current configuration. You have to go to the Windows settings, in the applications category and uninstall the Nvidia graphics driver. Then download the latest version from the site and reinstall it. It may be an update that installed incorrectly.
If the problem persists, it may be due to a bad Windows update, or your antivirus. This may be due to a physical failure of your memory modules. Perhaps it comes from a manipulation that you have carried out recently or from an incompatible program that you have recently installed or that the operating system has set up automatically. Check the list of recently installed apps in Settings > System > Apps > Programs & Features, sort by installation date.
You can also check hard disk segments with the command:
chkdsk C: /f (where C is the hard drive letter you want to repair).
Run a virus scan by your antivirus software, or Windows Security Virus & Threat Protection. Update your device drivers. Install the latest Windows updates.
Don't forget to make a global backup on a regular basis.
