In the vast world of Microsoft Windows, and its impressive number of tools and services, as well as in many operating systems such as Linux and Mac, with which it also has certain differences and similarities, there are many internal errors with different causes.

It is possible that in the middle of the use that you normally give to your computer with Microsoft Windows operating system, you get a window that says ‘the memory cannot be read’. This obviously gives us the chance to think that it is a RAM memory error, which is a bit uncertain.

We must clarify that this error is not only about RAM memory: it can also mean a problem in storage memory. It is a fairly common error, one that has to do with the location of files within memory.

‘The memory could not be read’ refers to the circumstance or moment in which a file to be installed is being executed as administrator, and it takes an address that takes it to an erroneous memory space, a place in memory where there is no can be.

Like any problem or error that Windows presents, regardless of its versions, there is one or more causes behind it. For example, the ‘Desktop Window Manager has stopped working’ problem has causes related to hard drive infections. And giving the solution is our duty.

The main causes of this error are memory related, obviously, and can be a malware (virus) issue within it; insufficient amount in random access memory; a hardware problem; or it may be related to the incorrect use of the logical resource of one application or of several simultaneously.

The first thing we must do to resolve the error in question is to right click on the ‘My Computer’ icon to get to ‘Properties’. Once there, we are located where it says Performance, and we click on ‘Settings’ and then enter ‘Advanced Options’.

In the ‘Virtual Memory’ window, click on ‘Change’; then, mark the option of custom size, and you are going to put an amount that depends on the RAM memory of your computer. In ‘Initial Size’ half of the RAM capacity should be put, and in ‘Maximum Size’ the total amount of said capacity should be put.

Finally, you just have to accept and proceed to restart the device and wait for it to turn on again to verify if the problem has been solved.

What to do if the ‘memory could not be read’ problem in Windows is not solved?

When it’s open with the ‘Notebook’ option, just write the following, right after the file: buffers=3000. Finally you have to save the file and then close it.

The final step is the same as in the previous process, we just have to restart the computer and after being turned on, verify that the problem is already resolved is what we want on our Windows computer.
