Not Necessarily Not Enough Drive Its Your Virtual Memory May Just Be Set Low. Go To Your Start Menu And Right Click On It Scroll Down To Properties and Click It. Then Once The Prompt Box Pops Up Select The Advanced Tab. Your Gonna Wanna Locate The Performance Settings Button And Click It.

My pc is running low on virtual memory when i use the internet


In general, you want to set your minimum virtual memory to about 3 times the total amount of memory installed in the machine.(3072MB for each gig of ram) The maximum should be 4096 more than the minimum setting.
To check this, right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties". Click on the "Advanced" tab and click the "Settings" button in the "Performance" section. On the "Performance Options" panel, click the "Advanced" tab. The virtual memory button is at the bottom (on xp machines). Selcect "custom" and then set the values according to how much ram you have in the machine. For more, check here.

Virtual Memory too low Warning Trouble in win xp and vista


When there is less physical memory than needed, then some virtual memory (virtual RAM) is created on the disk. When there is a limit set to the size of virtual memory usage and there is not enough of it present there is a warning that frequently comes "Virtual Memory too low". Solution 1 : This problem occurs when physical RAM + Virtual RAM (usually created on hard disk) together are not sufficient to take care of the currently needed RAM size, or this situation is about to arise. This usually happens when some fixed upper limit for Virtual Memory has been set. To solve this problem, you can either upgrade you physical RAM on your computer (recommended), or you can set the Virtual Memory to system managed size or you can do both. Setting Virtual Memory to system managed size means windows will set it to higher size whenever needed automatically,for this, <br /> Right click on My computer --&gt; goto properties, goto advanced tab, click on performance settings, now click on advanced, now click on advanced, now click on change button for Virtual memory. <br /> On this screen select the System managed size, press OK. After this re-start your computer. This will solve the virtual memory too low problem. Solution 2: Recommended solution is to upgrade your physical memory (RAM) according to requirements of the kind of applications that you run on your computer. If you upgrade RAM or not, the following procedure will help prevent this warning by increasing the virtual memory limit. <br /> Right click on My computer icon and click properties. <br /> This will show system properties window. Click on a advanced tab and click on the settings button under heading performance. This will open performance options window. Click on advanced tab and click on change button under heading virtual memory. Check if the space available is set to some custom value or double the RAM size ? If it is not double the RAM memory size , then select the size option set the virtual memory size double the RAM Size and press set button and press OK button. Restart the computer

My system says, (RAM) radon access memory low cpu intel (r) pentium 4 cpu, version 2.80 ghz. RAM 256 mb. What can I do to resolve this problem. Dell 4700 dimension


Windows XP requires a "bare-minimum" of 128MB of RAM, works "OK" with your 256MB of RAM, if you don't open too many programs at the same time, and if you close/re-open Internet Explorer about once an hour of usage.

But, Windows XP would be _much_ "happier" if you added 256MB or 512MB of RAM, because it is telling you ("available random access memory is low") that it is using all the RAM.

Add more RAM -- your computer will run much better.

My acer aspire 5600 warned that I am running out of memory. My "D" drive says there is 30g of free space. How do I use it?


I think the computer actually said you were running low on Virtual Memory ... memory is the physical ram installed in your machine ... virtual memory is an area of hard drive the computer uses to store data when in runs out of "real" memory .....hard drive space is nothing to do with memory.

Ok, that got that cleared up :-) .... now the quickest way to get over low virtual memory problems is to install more RAM. For XP you should really have a minimum of 512mb .... 1gb is probably optimum. For Vista you should really have a minimum of 2gb.

So if your laptop has less than 512mb(xp) or 2gb(vista), the first thing to do would be to upgrade the memory.

Virtual memory problems should only ever crop up when you are running multiple applications .... so just try and keep the amount of programs you have running to a minimum. Instead of just minimizing programs, try to close them down to save memory.

I have an IBM thinkpad T20 running windows 2000. The computer is on and booted up but the monitor is not lighting up. It is running on 256mb ram and I was getting a lot of virtual memory is low warnings...


To determine if the laptop has a problem with the inverter of low virtual memory issues, plug an external monitor in to the laptop and you can change the virtual memory by following these instructions, right click on my computer, select properties, then select advanced, click on virtual memory and change the settings to system detemined, save settings and reboot the laptop without the external monitor to see if it is virtual memory or inverter.
Please keep me informed

I get the warning virtual memory minimum too low how do i fix this


Very simple .just goto control panel >Double click on system >Select Advance tab >Under Performance tab click on Settings >Select Advanced >Under Virtual Memory tab click on Change,
Now select custom radio button
3497797.jpg
Now you will some thing like this
Initial size(MB) = 768
Maximum size -1024

Now here comes the main point and to enter proper values under Initial size (MB) =
and Maximum size =

suppose your ram is of 512 mb than initial size will be
Initial size = 768 ( 512 * 1.5 = 768)
Maximum size = 2304 ( 512 * 1.5 * 3 = 2304)
just enter the values according to calculation and your problem is solved ..if you want you can increase more 'Maximum size' value for faster system optimization .
