When i playing online games on my computer it shows a massage of virtual memory low....and the system go to hang.....hw can i solve ths problem...


Virual memory is an area on the Hardrive that "acts" like memory when your RAM gets too full
If your gaming--its better to increase RAM -but here is how to increase the Virtual memory

Go to START> right-click on MY COMPUTER>PROPERTIES>ADVANCED click on SETTINGS under the Performance area-- then click the ADVANCED tab -and you should see an area to change(increase) your Virtual Memory


If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this.

Virtual memory low, not sure how much I have got and what I can upgrade to? My desktop ser no is 11419107876?


I assume that you got a little balloon in the
bottom right-hand corner announcing that your
virtual memory is low and that Windows is
adjusting it. If this happens just once, don't
worry.

As the message said, Windows found a problem
and fixed it. But if it happens repeatedly,
it could be that your settings don't allow
Windows to make the necessary adjustment.

First, make sure your drive isn't overly full.
In Windows Explorer, right-click the drive
icon and choose Properties.
If the amount of free space is under about
10 percent, you'll need to free up some space.
You can use the Disk Cleanup button right next
to the free space indicator, or manually move
some files to off-line storage,
or uninstall unnecessary applications whatever
it takes to get more free space.

If low drive space isn't the problem, the
virtual-memory settings may be wrong.
Right-click My Computer and choose
Properties. Click the Advanced tab.
Click the Settings button in the
Performance panel.

Click the Advanced tab in the Performance dialog.
Click the Change button in the Virtual
memory panel. Whew! This setting is buried
quite thoroughly!
Look for the System managed size option,
select it if it isn't already selected,
and then click OK, OK, OK. That should end the
warnings.

PC won't 4power on.


Failures in the motherboard, memory, or any installed card could cause that symptom. All I can suggest based on the above information is remove memory one piece at a time and retest, remove/reseat video card if you have one, and attempt to reset the CMOS using the jumper on the board. You might also try removing the battery on the board and unplugging everything, then attempt to reboot.

Windows Virtual Memory Minimum is Low


fairly normal occurrence but you should have a look at your performance settings
go to control panel
double click system icon
click the advanced tab at the top
by performance click settings
in pop up window click advanced tab
at the bottom you'll see virtual memory
click change
most common option now is to set the radio button to system managed size
you should then ok each window.....

Vertiual memory


Virtual memory is really hard disk space used as memory.
If you are running low on virtual memory, make sure your hard disk is not nearly full (check in MyComputer). or adjust Virtual Memory settings:

On Windows XP look in
  • Control Panel
  • System, Advanced,
  • Performance,
  • Settings,
  • Advanced,
  • Virtual Memory.(set to a larger number)
I believe it's in a similar location in other versions of Windows.
