Hit ctrl shift esc and click on the "processes" tab (if you don't see it click "more details "on the bottom). Than click on the columns like "CPU" or "Memory" to filter if it has reached the Max CPU or Memory that your computer can handle.

Any given process only runs out of resource when it (or others with it) use all CPU, Disk and Memory. The post above shows a nice picture of Task Manager which is a good tool to use. Mine is always running in my System Tray.
