Fix Page File Error Out Of Memory & VRAM Capping In COD Warzone
Call Of Duty Warzone is an awesome free-to-play Battle Royale game, that you can enjoy on your Windows 10 PC or laptop. But unfortunately, all games have their faults and in this post, we will be taking a look at hopefully fixing the Page File error and also the VRAM capping issue.
These two problems can cause a lot of issues within Warzone and can also have an impact on the performance of the game when playing on your PC!
When it comes to the page file error in Warzone you may have noticed that your game will crash to your Windows 10 desktop and display a window saying something like “paging file error out of memory”. Luckily this is normally a fairly simple issue to fix and it could be as simple as you do not have enough space on your hard drive.
With the VRAM capping issue within Call Of Duty Warzone, this can be resolved by editing a file. This will increase the amount of VRAM available to Warzone and increase the VRAM Max bar. It might take a couple of attempts until you do set the correct value, but once you do it will resolve the VRAM capping problem.
Unfortunately sometimes after a Warzone update, you might need to update the file again as it can sometimes be overwritten with the default values again.
