 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.

There's not much that one can "upgrade" on a laptop.
You could install more RAM.
You could install a larger & faster disk-drive.
If you're running Windows XP, you could upgrade to Windows 7.
That's the only components that can be upgraded.

Dell 8400 new memory

If you are using Windows XP, go into your control panel, double click System (from classic view), and look towards the bottom where it says "Processor x.xx GHz, x.xx GB of RAM" and make sure your 2.00 GB of RAM is recognized by Windows. Next I would make sure you are using 400- or 533-MHz DDR2 unbuffered SDRAM. If you are, try removing one of the two modules and see if the computer runs smoothly. If it does, I would install a different brand of memory.
