Welcome to Librarium Online!
i got dawn of war today and i got exited and all installing all the discs i couldnt wait to play it at skirmish for the rest of the day.... and all it took was one pop-up saying "Not enopugh phisical memory to run the game. your system must have at least 256MB of RAM" and my day was ruined i couldnt believe i still had 75% of memory left. im so sad could you help me please id apricate it
All computer techies will say the same thing at this point: Post Your Damn System Specs!!!
Anyhow, tell us what kind of computer you have how much memory, what speeds... blah blah.
Can't really help you until you give us that info.
256 megs of ram FTW, didnt work for me either. my comps a tad outdatedOriginally Posted by Lord of the slaanshe
Keep in mind that whatever operating system you are using will chew up a lot of your RAM. Either DOW doesn't give the option to exit the OS (likely), or it does and the installer doesn't know how to calculate the amount of free RAM (extremely unlikely).
Fork out the $20 - $30 for an extra 256 MB Ram.
Best advice I can give without knowing your specs (Hint, Hint).

Corianis is right,
Just get some more RAM (You are better off investing and getting about 1GB, cause you'll need it for any newer games), throw it in and see what happens. Just be sure you get the right type of RAM or it might be incompatible. You can buy it cheap online, or in any computer/electronics store. You can pick up two 512Mb cards for about Â£120.
Computers have a tendancy to do that; pretend that they have more RAM than they really do and moan at you when you try and use it. I've had 2 do this to me- I tried loading Black&White onto my old ME computer, it had 64 Meg RAM and the game needed 64- troubleshoot said that the comp only had 63.8 megs. Damn machines. The only solution is to buy yourself some more RAM. I have DoW on my laptop, so that was a piece of cake, just unscrew the plate at the bottom and oush the RAM chip into place. Can't be that much more difficult for a PC. I got an extra 256 megs for Â£50.
*phew* am i glad i paid a little extra to upgrade my ram for my new computer ^_^ . but really we need your specs to better identify the problem you have. go with 1 gb of ram as said above, it will allow your computer to run more programs and faster. plus you will be prepared for all the new games that come out.
one thing i hve noticed is this, mate had 256mb ram, but an onboard gfx, so when running with the onboard at 64mb did not have enough left for the minimum spec.
so really to run it you'll need at least 256mb and then a gfx of 64mb.
