Re: windows-virtual memory minimum too low
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. Now Select The Advanced Tab And Go Down To Where It Says Virtual Memory, Click Change Up The Number Mines At 384 top and 1500 bottom. Now Click Set After Changing The Numbers And Select Ok,Ok,Ok On All Three Tabs. This Will Do It

The master/slave drive model applies to IDE drives (older) these use a 40 or 80 pin ribbon cable. The newer SATA drives (L shaped connectors) don't rely on master/slave config. If you are using IDE you will need to specifically configure the jumper on the main drive as master and the other as slave, alternately you can set them both to cable select. The slave drive will show up under disk management as Disk 1. If you add a second disk this will give you more storage space, in this case 50GB (think of this a long term storage or data that is saved after the computer is shut down) Ram on the other hand is where the computer stores data and applications for faster access, not all of a program has to be loaded in to ram, parts of it can be swapped out from your hard drive as needed. Having more ram means the computer doesn't need to waste time swapping out parts of a program, it can load it all into ram at once.
had same/similiar problem if your computer is asking for a driver when you insert the windows 7 disc your motherboard might not support windows 7 if its older than 5 yrs also you need a minimum of 2 GB of ram to support windows 7 hope this helps
click start right click on my computer select properties you should how much ram you have installed and how much available it looks like it is capable of 4GB of ram remember when adding more ram try to keep the same brand/type as some motherboards will only work with the one type of ram together and always place the larger ram closest to the cpu central processing unit Toshiba Mk4025gas Pm ...

as you can see there is a contradiction in how much ram but if its a windows 7 it will need a minimum of 2 gb of ram but it could use 4gb
hope this helps
Some of that problem appears to your system hardware requirements, because if the hardware that you've use is not compatible to the software you've installed, it cannot process the installation. Windows XP Hardware requirements.
1. 1Ghz to 2 Ghz (x86), (x32) 16bit/32 bit or Higher CPU - Pocessor.
2. at least 15G to 20G Hard disk space available for the software.
3. 2G RAM memory.
4. minimum of 256MB video graphics card.
There seems to be a misconception here. The virtual memory is a part on the Hard drive that your computer uses similar RAM. It only uses it once you have utilized most of your RAM so increasing it would not do much value at all. I suggest you upgrade the physical RAM sticks. (the memory physically attached to the motherboard of your computer). For your Seagate, it would be used just as a storage for data and not as memory. and since it is external, you could also not allocate some part of it to be used as virtual memory.
you could go to a computer store and ask them what memory (RAM stick) would be compatible for your computer if you want to do an upgrade. I'm sure you could also ask them to put it on for you to have the result or your desired amount of memory installed to your computer.
hope this helps.
Ubuntu works with RAM and CPU Memory instead of a pc like xp that uses Virtual RAM. If the pc that could not load ubuntu doesn't have enough ram to support the reading of the Hard drive and the Operating System then it won't work and Xp will only run on the computer that xp was installed onto the hard drive.
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.
