sorry to say it but Cosmo uses LOTS of ram
it can use 800MB or more per work unit
its been talked about in other old threads
the software would need to be updated to change this and last thing i read is that there is no one available to do it and it may be a long tome before there is.

in BOINC manager can you increase the ammount of ram that Boinc and Cosmo can use

How mutch RAM have you got in your PC. machine 102297 is listed as only having 255MB of ram ???? If that is true fit another 1000MB or so and try again, it should work then :)

When I changed the limits in my Boinc Manager. It simply stoped running my Cosmology work units...

If it only want to run them, when I'm not using the computer, it will never finish, because I'm turning off my PC, when I'm not using it.

I guess I have to quit running work units, until it is fixed... :o(

Use a computer that wasn't found at an archaeological dig?
