RAM resource critical

I have a question about increasing availabillity of RAM memory for SolidWorks. I'm currently using Solidworks student edition 2015-2016. My notebook has 8GB of physical memory, but when Solidworks is using about 500MB of that, it says that it is running critical and I should close some documents, when I have only two files opened. Besides that only around 30% of the total memory is in use at these moments. Besides that Solidworks is also really slow at moments.


I was wondering if it would be possible to increase the RAM that Solidworks can use. There is enough left unused. If there is no option to fix it then I hope that expanding the RAM will help, but since just 30% is used in the current situation, I'm not exactly sure it will help.


I hope you guys can help me, because I could not find an answer on different kinds of forums.
