 Virtual Memory can be adjusted in most computers but check out how much percentage ofactual memory you have used.  If you have used more than 75% of your actual memory, adjusting your virtual memory might not help. It sounds as if your pc is getting filled up with data.
     When your computer is running out of memory it performs slowly and will not respond to normal functions at regular speed because it is spending time processing where and how much data go where and not just reading and writing to one area of the hard drive.  When it has plenty of memory to use operations go quickly and no memory messages appear.     This message you are getting is an indication that it is time to buy more memory for your computer.  If your machine is more than 5 years old, it is recommended that you upgrade to a new machine.  Older machines do not process information at the same speed as newer processors, so they are generally not as equipped to deal with software and media storage of today's standards.      The good news is memory is as cheap as it ever was.  You can buy external hard drives for increasingly less every month, so go to New Egg or Comp USA or 6th Avenue electronics or J&R Music World and start shopping for a Hard Drive that meets your needs.  A 100gb Drive will give you lots of usable memory and keep your processing speed up.  Be sure to buy a reliable brand (Lacie) and know how to mount and dismount the drive properly or you will have problems later on.

Can you use a Seagate 500GB FreeAgent GoFlex external Hard Drive with ready boost in windows 7?


Yes, but because it's a hard disk and has low transfer speeds it will actually slow down the pc instead of making it work faster. Ready boost is designed to be used only with memory sticks of the latest generation.

you can try some data recovery software. You can see

It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the memory card (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the memory card and recover your files.

Hi,
first run the samsung diagnostics on the harddrive to check the drive integrity weather or not its repairable. Then you can low level format the hardrive to fix any bad sectors

I can't get my card reader to work on my pc


when plugging into a USB you'll hear one of two sounds
a sound from low to high or a sound from high to low
the low to high sound it that the USB is working fine
the high to low means the USB is not working , on
another note SanDisk uses a utility on everyone of its
cards a troublesome utility that is not easily worked
the older it is the less performance it will have , but ultimately the sound has to be there the sound is the
computer recognizing the plugged in device which you'll find in my computer .
