Low memory warning message on Windows 7

Out of the blue, without having made any recent changes to the display hardware, OS, or even the RV presentation, we are now getting a low memory message on the display.  I see an post a year ago that didn't allude to much.  The display PC has 2 GB RAM, 32 BIT OS, and is set to hibernate then reboot nightly.  The presentation has a twitter feed, instagram widget, RSS, google calendar, an image file via URL, and weather gadget.  But again, working fine for months until now.  Any thoughts?  Thanks

IT,

Were you able to resolve this issue? Have you been able to track the system performance using perfmon?

One clear cache on the rise player. This is in case you have a lot data that's gotten saved. Second I have seen widows update cause issues before where it doesn't remove its temp files from the update. If this is the case, I recommend reload. It can be fixed but it's not worth the fix because it will come back. Third if that's not it then check if Windows downloaded 10 update. It's a big file so it could be taken a good chunk of space.

Hope that helps

Steve,

You can see both the Perfmon posts here.

Another thing to check would be to make sure no Antivirus, or real time scanning software is running, they can chew up memory like crazy.

Another thing you may want to try is to shut off any Windows Services that you don't need. This can also save a lot of memory that is being wasted on services you don't use.

Thanks!
