You can resolve the iusse by downloading from Mac app store memory free (Which is an application that on a time based frees your RAM ).

This should give you more free RAM on the day work.
How ever upgrading your RAM from 2 Gb up to 4Gb is the best solution if you are used to run eavy apps.

Now i found that crashing my system not related to full memory. actually  i found my system has 2 type of crash.

1st : when chromium was opened and RAM gets full my system crashed , that solved by reinstall chromium browser.

2st: some times my system crashed that irrelevant any thing. in this case mouse and keyboard didn't work properly and mouse has jumping move.

 

please help me to solve 2st problem.

 

Sorry for my bad English.

Run activity monitor and leave running then wait crash occurts and verify if you could identify process or app crashing ...

This happened to me as well, something was slowly eating up all of my 8GBs of memory and then you get these dialog boxes asking to close applications because there's no more memory, but nothing helps at that point.

 

Like pippox hints at, it's very likely caused by a memory leak in a 3rd party driver or application. I guess something has changed in the way Mavericks handles memory and some drivers or apps need to be updated to work properly. I fixed it by uninstalling something or removing a driver, But I can no longer remember what it was.

 

We have a few other topics here about this same issue.
