Autocad is running out of system memory.

Hi

 

Can anyone advise how to go about in resolving this error in Autocad 2009.

" Autocad is running out of system memory. Continuing the current command may result in program failure or loss of data. Do you want to cancel the current command?"

 

What I have done:

- Format the entire system and re-installed Windows XP Pro 32but with SP3 + all updates from Microsoft.

- Re-install Autocad 2009

- No other programs is installed except Microsoft Office 2007.

- Perform a DOS Format and using hard disk utility to check - No Problem with Hard Disk.

- Perform a memory test using MEMTEST. - No Problem with Memory.

- Dealing with Photoshop file around 2GB is stable especially with multiple layers etc..

- System Specs: Intel Core 2 Quad, 4GB Memory, 500GB Hard Disk.

 

This problem only occurs when the DWG is in Paper Space.

However in Model Space, there is no problem.

 

I try using this similar DWG file on another computer running Autocad LT 2009 and there is no problem whether in Paper Space or Model Space.

 

Can anyone advise where goes wrong here?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

If you look to the taskmanager, how much memory is assigned to AutoCAD at the time the message come up?

Does this happen also on new drawings when you switch to paperspace?

Do you have some XRef or Image (Logo?) referenced in paperspace (e.g. parts of titleblock?)

If it's drawing specific can you upload one of these drawings?

Is your anti-virus software scanning AutoCAD and/or DWG files?

The 2009 releases were notorious for memory consumption issues.  There may have been a hotfix and/or SP to assist with the problem, but for sanity's sake upgrade to a newer version if you can.
