Hello, I just got a new HP laptop on Black Friday: Windows 8, 8gb RAM, Intel Core i5 3210M, and I'm using 32-bit Internet Explorer 10. When on IE10 watching Netflix or playing Minecraft, I have gotten Out of Memory messages. Restarting the tab usually fixes the problem, but this is a new computer so I don't know why it's doing this. I don't have many windows open and the task manager doesn't show anything being maxed out. Can anyone shed some light on this subject? Thanks in advance and Happy New Year!!!

Idk if I was being clear before: The out of memory errors were from Netflix and Minecraft, not from my computer. It would happen in the middle of the video or game. Any help is appreciated!!

When you get these errors, do not close them, and go into Task Manager->Process tab to see how much memory does it show the particular process using? Also go into the Task Manager performance tab and click on Memory to see how much total memory is being used.

Even though you have 8GBs of RAM, 32 bit apps can only use up to 4GB of memory. With that said, I would be very surprised if Netflix/IE 10 or Minecraft was using that much memory, but you never know.
