No clue and impossible for me to debug redibly without watching over your shoulder.
Try this while you're waiting for more competent windows assistance: Make a copy of the comp you are trying to render. Examine it carefully and try to imagine how you would group it into individual movies that can be stacked up. If you don't understand how to precomp or nest, turn off all layers that cannot be exported as self-ctonatined movies. Render these movies one at a time and see if they will complete. If they don't, try to see if there is something they have in common. There will be something.
if that doesn't sound like any fun, simply tur off half the layers and render. Then tur off the other half and render. Continue to do binary reductive tests until you identify the issue.
alright, i figured out the problem and it is the RAM. After effects wants to use more RAM than windows and that causes it to fail. Is there any way i can fix this?

Not really. You are working on a 32bit OS with 32bit software and only having 2.87 GB for applications is perfectly normal. you can only throw so and so much at that. However, this on a more general level has never stopped anyone from getting work done, so you are probably using some very memory hungry effect or feature or a leaky plug-in. Anyway, without more info this is not going anywhere. That and your computer being a gaming machine certainly doesn't help the matter...
