Ok, 224 MB ram sounds like 256Mb with 32 being used for Video Ram. 854 MB would be a non standard amaount of ram., in other words, it is not divisible by 128. If you have more than one ram stick in the machine, then it is likely that one of them has gone bad an dwill need to be replaced.

Not enough virtual memory


Step 1:
Virtual memory is a portion of your hard drive that Windows sets aside to utilize as memory. When your RAM is over utilized, the operating system can swap pages of data to the hard drive to make more room. Swapping files, or paging, is slow, but it allows your computer to remain functional when your memory space is full. If your virtual memory space, or page file, fills up as well, you'll get an error. Fixing this issue is quick and the process is identical in safe mode or in a typical boot situation.


Change Virtual Memory Settings in Windows XP Click "Start" from the Windows desktop. Right-click "My Computer" and click "Properties." Select the "Advanced" tab and under Performance click "Settings." Select the "Advanced" tab and click "Change" under Virtual Memory. Click "System managed " to allow Windows to automatically adjust your Virtual Memory as needed. Click "Custom " to alter the memory space to your own specifications. Enter a value in MB equal to at least 1.5 times the of your computer's memory for the initial . Enter a value in MB no larger than four times your memory for maximum . Click "OK" and restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

Error message Low on virtual memory


Virtual Memory is used by the operating system as an extension to the Random Access Memory (RAM). When the RAM does not have enough space to accommodate the entire running program, the inactive parts of that program are temporarily shifted to the Virtual Memory. These parts are then swapped back into the RAM as and when needed. If the Virtual Memory set on your system is not enough for the computer operations to run smoothly, then you will get the "Virtual Memory Is Too Low" error message.If operating system is xp then this problem can be easily overcome by increasing the Virtual Memory size.This is how you can do it by following instrutions:

  1. Click on "Start" and then click on "Control Panel.
  2. Double-click on the "System" icon in the Control Panel.
  3. Click on the "Advanced" tab in the System Properties dialog box.
  4. Click on the "Settings" button below Performance.
  5. Click on the "Advanced" tab in the Performance Options dialog box.
  6. Click on the "Change" button below Virtual memory.
  7. Click on a drive_letter below "Drive [Volume Label]" in the Virtual Memory dialog box.
  8. Click on the "Custom size" option.
  9. Click in the "Initial size (MB)" text box and type a larger value (for example, 600).
  10. Click in the "Maximum size (MB)" text box, and type a larger value (for example, 1500).
  11. Click on the "Set" button. Similarly change the Virtual Memory on other drives.
  12. Click on "OK" and then restart your computer.

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.
