I have a problem with version 8 running windows 7. I use a dual 2.77 zeon processors with a raid zero config on two SCSI 15k 40 gig hard drives. I nowhere even get near any limit of processor, ram (4 gig 34 bit) or hard drive space. I close all the unnecessary services down to about 43. I don't even have to open a project just the program and I still get the memory message, then it just quits. At that point I am only using 1.2 gig of ram, 30 gig of Raid zero hard drive space left and 1.2% of processor use. Yes i did all the Nvidia and windows upgrades and the patch. I did it twice just to make sure it took.I use O&O to defrag disk off line. Sometimes the program perm 7 just shuts down without a warning.The puter still running just fine.
Video card is Nvidia GeForce 6200 512 ram.
It will do this with just 5 jpeg pics of 3meg loaded. I have managed to even burn a disk after about 18 restarts. It will play video frams just fine if it will stay running long enough.
I believe I looked everywhere in my setup and stats to no avail for a "low memory" problem.
Thanks in advance...

The most common cause of out of memory errors is using photos that are larger than 1000x750 pixels in size, as detailed my books and explained in the FAQs to the right of this forum.
There are several forms of "memory," in play with an NLE (Non Linear Editor) program, like PrE. This ARTICLE will give you some tips on setting up your computer for editing.
