You don't say how much RAM is installed on your computer.  Nevertheless, this is error message is telling you that you don't have 2g of RAM to spare.

If you have enough RAM installed, then you could try closing other programs that are running and see if this frees up enough RAM for Stata to load the file.

If you don't have enough RAM installed, you could try a computer with more RAM.

Failing that, do you need all the variables in your dataset?
If not, you can specify the variables you need when you open the file:
use [varlist] using filename, clear
