Low VRAM problems

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, sorry to keep bombarding this forum with my problems just I can't figure it out. I'm getting low memory warnings in many games such as BF3 even though i'm only using 43% but it's telling me it's my vram.

It seems random too, likely an SLI issue?

Turn your AA and AF down one notch and see if the problem occurs again.

I'll try but the weird thing is is that i'm nowhere near the maximum vram usage so that's why it's weird.

Have you turned off your page file by any chance? If so, turn it back on. If it's already on, try making it bigger.

This may seem random but my next suggestion after that would be to get a hold of more system ram and try it out (preferably buy it from somewhere you can return it if that doesn't work).

I know it sounds from the message like your vram is the issue, but ... I don't think it actually is. Error messages can be deceiving. And I know you're not 'using' your 8MB of system ram, but a bunch of memory address space gets reserved by your video card(s), so I would try increasing system RAM amount in a temporary, inexpensive fashion just to see if it helps.

I did only because it seems like 8mb seemed like it would be enough. I don't mind getting more and I thank you for your help.

So you did turn off the page file? That's probably the issue then. In my experience, having it off just creates issues, Window's doesn't seem to much like it turned off. It really doesn't help much to turn it off from what I've ever seen, so ... I'd just leave it on if I were you.
