There was a similar issue reported with another NUC a few months back and this was found to be mainly an operating system issue since other systems, not only the NUC were getting the same message. This was reported in Microsoft communities.
We would suggest having the latest BIOS as well as the latest graphics driver, but it is best to check the following threads for more information.
I am having this same issue with my new NUC5i5RYK which I am using as an HTPC. When I turn off my receiver which the HDMI is connected to, it gives the low memory error when I turn it back on, but there is plenty of free memory. According to the older thread, Intel was able to fix this same issue with the 4th gen display drivers, so it seems as if they should be able to solve it here as well.
Display driver version is 10.18.14.4170.
I am having the same issue when my TV, connectected in HDMI to my NUC5i5RYK is powered back on, i can see the message box "You are running low on memory"
I am on windows 8.1 and every update is done (recommanded and optionnal). The intel display driver is in version 10.18.14.4170. The display adapter is an intel HD Graphics 6000,
It seems to be the same isse that happened on the Intel HD 5000 a few months ago, where there was a memory leak when the display gets disconnected from the graphics adapter.
Any ideas of workaround, or if there is a fix coming?
Add another one to your list. Extremely annoying! Just started happening out of the blue about 2 weeks ago. "Your computer is low on memory"
RAM 16 GB
Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center
I am also connected to a receiver. As others have said, the problem only seems to occur when the receiver is powered off or switched inputs for a period of time. I sincerely hope there is a fix soon. The sole purpose of my NUC is a HTPC.
None of these suggestions help.
When are you guys going to fix the problem?
This is clearly a display driver issue.
Reproduce it yourself.
Plug a NUC into an AV receiver...power the receiver off (so the NUC has no monitor) for several hours (about 6-8) and you'll see the error yourself.
Please try these drivers:
We have a new graphics driver version: 22.214.171.12422, it is posted to Intel Download Center at the following direct links:
Also let me know if you have tested other cables, this is often overlooked and may very well be the issue, make sure you are using good quality HDMI cables.
The only cables connected are power and HDMI.
I've tried one other HDMI cable...same low memory error.
But why would a cable be the cause of a low memory error?
Also, do you have a list of fixes this new driver addresses?
Is this 4222 a beta?
I have seen many errors that have been resolved just by changing the cable, so thanks for testing it.
This driver is not beta; you can find the information regarding this version in the release notes included in the download center link.
Please try it and let me know the behavior.
Still Happening with the new driver version, already tried with a new cable too.
I still don't see any information related to what this driver version fixes.
Just instructions on howto install.
I found it...I didn't see the PDF link at the upper right.
Just to clarify...this low memory warning (after looking in the event viewer) is a low virtual memory warning...but ONLY when the NUC is disconnected from the AV receiver.
Same results as the other two users.
