With a 32-bit operating system, Lightroom will limit itself to about a megabyte of memory usage. Upgrading your memory won't do any good unless you go to a 64-bit OS.

This means your computer does not have enough memory to complete the task.

Things to try:

  1. Make sure all other programs are closed (except Lightroom, of course)
  2. Export in smaller batches
  3. Upgrade your computer to have at least 8GB of memory
