"Couldn't load data for this visual" and "not enough memory" errors while having plenty of memory

I am developing one complex Power BI report.
There are some issues in that occationally it requires a lot of memory and is slow to develop and debug.

I checked if we should optimize the report or if I should get a new laptop with more memory and the answer was the latter.
So now I got a brand new laptop with 64 GB of memory, but the problem is that I still get the same error in Desktop:


I looked for all of the settings and set them larger, but that didn't help.

And I am using only 22% of the memory according to Task Manager.
Any other settings I could change to use all of the memory for the Desktop?

"And I am using only 22% of the memory according to Task Manager."
Sponsor decided that we will not optimize the data model.

Hi @TimoRiikonen ,


It may be caused by the data model being too bloated(large data model , complex queries...) and low local machine configuration. 

Please kindly check how much RAM and CPU Power BI is taking. And refer the official document to optimize the data model.


Hope these help:


Best Regards,
Rico Zhou
