View Full Version : low memory
2009-08-13, 06:31 PM
I am currently woorking on a 2MB drawing and after about 2-3 hours i get the messages attached below in the order that you see them. After the last message ACAD shuts down.
When I try to save the drawing, it takes upwards of 5 sec to save. I have worked on other drawings that were of similar size with slow save times but no crash. I chalked it up to the file size and i can live with that. The constant crashing I can't live with.
Nothing is being referanced outside the drawing. I have purged, done an audit, and recover.
Running on a HP xw 4600, Vista 32-bit, Intel Core2 quad.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Googling "e06d7363h" shows lots of possible problems like -

Thanks for the possible solutions, but none of them worked. I should mention that I am using 2009 LT. I decided to check my physical memory usage while saving the drawing and noticed that it jumped up 30MB to 40MB every time and never would go down. At about 75% used CAD crashes (see above attachment). Should this really happen for a 2MB drawing? Is this an Auto CAD issue, Vista issue, or (even better) my file is corrupt?

Could you tell us how much phyical RAM you actually have installed in the machine. Before upgradingmy RAM, I regularly opened 150 MB drawings with 1GB RAM, which is probably the limit, using the old rule of thumb that you need 8x the filesize as the available RAM required to open a drawing. I'm no expert despite 20+ years working with AutoCAD, just trying to offer some advice. I find that if memory usage gets above 75% and then you want to save, there is a liklihood of a crash, but i can't see that happening with such a small file size. I'd suggest you run an audit, then a purge, then save and restart the computer. If the problems persists, i'd suggest checking your video card drivers are up to date, and try and minimise the amount of RAM used by closing down any other programs you have running.

I have 4 gb of ram. My computer is less than a year old (8 months), video drivers are up to date. On a normal work day, I will have outlook, autocad, and one or two internet explorer windows open on duel monitors. I wouldn't think that this would be an issue. This problem hasn't occured as of late, but then again I haven't been working on large drawings (1 mb or bigger:lol:). It has been brought to my attention that because vista runs a ton of things in the back ground that this might be part of the problem. When I was going to school (1 year ago), the laptop I had was not as large as my current computer and it was running full autocad and architecture. Any other ideas or input would be greatly appreciated.
