Printer gives Out of memory error

Cause: There are multiple possibilities.

Solution: Each printer has a distinct set of drivers that instruct the printer on how a task is to be handled. Your driver or the settings might have been changed. Some printers also require the user to specify the amount of RAM that the printer will be allocated. Hence, check the settings for the printer. Go to Start > Settings > Printers and Faxes, rightclick on the printer and go to Properties. There you will be able to see this option. The setting here should match the rated setting of the printer. If this is not a problem, then it may be that the printer spools all tasks to the hard disk before printing any task; over a period of time, your hard disk may have become clogged with all this data, leaving you with no space to spool tasks. This can be fixed by clearing some space from your hard drive. There’s another, remote possibility: the memory chips might have become loose or perhaps damaged. In that case, you’ll need to contact a technician.
