You have not posted in details so it's kind of hard to say exact answer.
But mostly your problem seem less memory of RAM so you need to update your RAM because vista OS requires at least 1 GB RAM to run it properly.
and if it it RAM problem then get it updated then your problem will be gone.
than you

My face book get hang after 2 or 3 minutes. Why. I am using google crome.

My friend, i understood your problem....this problem is due to low virtual memory of your computer.
Because Facebook is flash based site so that kind of problem occurs.

You have not specified your computer capabilities such as RAM, Processor,FSB etc..

Now best solution is that Download the newest version of "Adobe flash player" or also try new version of mozilla firefox..

I hope you understand and Thank you very much for giving me oportunity to solve your problem..

My computer is getting slow when right button of the mouse is selected

The Virtual Memory on your system may be low and could cause your mouse clicks to respond slowly. Also you virtual memory size is directly related to your RAM size. For Better functionality, your Virtual memory should be 1.5 time the RAM size (150% RAM Size).

To check if the memory is the cause of your problem, right click your task bar (Task bar is the lower ribon at the bottom of your screen), click on start task manager. on the Open window, click on the perfoemance tab. If you have used up more than 90% of physical memory usage, your system will perform slogishly.

To check the Virtual Memory, right click my computer Advanced ( or Advanced system setting if you are using win7), on the performnace menu, click on settings, check to see if the "let Windowns choose what's best for my computer" is selected if not select it. click ok and close all the open windows.

What is a blackberry JVM error 517?

This error is a Java Virtual Machine error which indicates a memory management problem, possibly related to a hardware problem.
In short, the Java Virtual Machine was trying to store information in a place which was already allocated for something else. Since this could be a hardware-related issue, the only recourse is to reset the device. If simply reloading the device doesn't work, try removing the batteries for 3 minutes and then put them back.

Virtual Memory Problem

Virtual memory is a paging file setup on your hard drive. It reserves a spot on your hard drive to use in place of ram memory. You should be able to safely set it to 4096. You don't want to use too much as your computer will use what is available and it's faster to use actual ram memory than virtual memory. I'd leave the min. at 1536 and set max to 4096.

I had same problem on my new XP Home Edition . It's got 1GB of RAM and I reckon the software is just comparing the raw numbers i.e 1 is less than 3 so it doesn't think it has enough memory. I reset my Virtual Memory and the game works fine.
To fix, try this
Right-click on My Computer icon, and select Properties.
Click on the Advanced tab,
then select the Settings button within the Performance section.
In the Performance Options window, click on the Advanced tab, and then select the Change button in the Virtual Memory section.
Click the Custom size button...
Change the Initial size (MB) setting to 4000
Change the Maximum size (MB) setting to 4000
Select SET to accept the change, which will close the Virtual Memory window. Select OK to close the Performance Options window. And select OK to exit the System Properties window. Oh, and don't forget to restart your computer. I hope this helps.

Virtual memory

Your hard drive is getting to full for it to be used as virtual memory
When normal memory gets used up windows uses the hard drive as memory ans if insufficient room on hard drive is not available you get this message.
1) delete programs from hard drive to create more space
2) Install new hard drive and transfer programs to it. creating more room on C drive
3) If hard drive is already partitioned and 2nd partition has a lot of free space transfer Virtual over to it.

Go to Start / Control panel Open The System folder go to "Advanced" "performance settings"
Then to "Advanced " Click on change and set Virtual memory to new disk.
Set maximum and minimum the same at 3 times the amount of normal memory you ave

Low virtual memory

Virtual memory means you're running out of memory, so it's using your hard drive storage as memory. This is slow. This is an indication you: Have too little memory and need to run fewer programs or install more memory; and also increase the size of your virtual memory, which will also make your disk space tighter. If you are really pinching the computer that badly, you may want to consider buying a new laptop altogether -- the prices have come down a -lot- just in the 2 1/2 years since you bought that. Anyway, to work around the immediate problem:

Your Gateway came with Windows XP Home Edition. Click Start: Control Panels. See if you can find the Performance control panel, possibly by switching to "Classic view." In there, look for the memory tab. Find the virtual memory section. It may be set to "Let Windows decide." change it to at least 1000mb.

You can get a bigger hard drive (after buying an external case to move stuff over) and upgrade your memory to as much as 1.25gb; but you may find those purchases to not be sensible relative to the price of a new laptop. Memory is cheap and relatively easy; the hard drive is more difficult and will set you back at least $100 if you do it yourself.
