what has low memory the computer or the printer? whats the printer model number and what size picture were you trying to print?

This might also be caused by a pagefile thats too small.

Can we get a dcreenshot of the task manager performance tab?

let us know if you need help with any of this

Have you tried turning off the printer, unplugging the power and usb for 30 seconds and trying again?

Also, if you right click on a picture and choose print, what happens?

physical memory is fine. Page file is a bit large but still has enough free. The printer seems like it should be ok.

Has this printer worked on another OS?

What driver is installed for it?

Printer does work with written pages but no pictures.
On XP everything was ok.

When right clicking on pic I get same error.

Pic is only 27 KB.

Unplugging...does not help

Now I found out that when opening with "Paint" it prints.
I guess the culprit is the default picture viewer of Microsoft.

Guess I have to install ACDSEE or similar.

As zig said memory on comp looks fine, it's more with the printer memory, also A4 on paper i'm not familar with possible cause. Printers normally use 8X10 letter paper or photo paper as i have an HP printer myself and i never use A4 for printing. Just some things to check, hope this helps.
