"Not enough printer memory available to print page" when you print a presentation in PowerPoint

Note

Office 365 ProPlus is being renamed to Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise. For more information about this change, read this blog post.

Symptoms

When you print a presentation in Microsoft PowerPoint, you may receive the following error message:

Not enough printer memory available to print page.

Cause

This problem can occur because the memory setting on the Microsoft Windows printer driver is too low. The default memory setting for some printer drivers is the lowest possible setting. Therefore, this setting may be insufficient for your print job.

Resolution

To fix this problem, reset the memory setting on the printer driver to reflect the exact amount of memory installed on the printer in question.

To change the printer driver memory setting, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers.
  2. Right-click the appropriate printer icon, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Device Options tab.
  4. In the Printer Memory list, click the correct setting, and then click OK.
