your computer is low on memory.  Save your files and close these programs:







Skyrim CTD and windows displays attached message.  Anyone seen?

It looks like your ENB is not configured correctly. I've never seen this warning myself, but from what I understand, the ENB memory settings should prevent this. Double-check your enblocal.ini. What Greg said. :-P

This dialog is saying that Windows is running out of memory (e.g. total free memory is near zero) so it recommends closing the application that's using the most memory, and this just happens to be Skyrim.


If you are using an x86 version of Windows, there may not be much you can do since 32-bit architecture is limited to about 3.2GB maximum memory.


If you are using an x64 operating system with at least 4GB memory, you can increase the size of the page file and/or install more memory.

Also, if you happen to be running anything else aside from Skyrim, like say Google Chrome etc, close them.

I 'm at 6GB system ram, Win 7 64bit, 2GB 680 Nvidia GPU, 1280x800 (yes that's right .. low resolution for testing).  I seem to have resolved the problem by closing programs and restarting Skyrim.
