First, a little explanation: Memory and virtual memory are not the same. Physical memory is what you see when you have 224 MM. Virtual memory is actually a file on your hard drive. You have to reset it to get rid of this message. Here's how:
Right click on "my computer" and then left click on "properties."
Now left click on "advanced." In that window, left click on "settings."When that window opens up, left click on "advanced." At the bottom of this window you will see the virtual memory properties. You will need to click on "change." About halfway down you need to click on "system managed size" and click on "set" just to the right. Then click on "OK"
The paging file will be changed when you restart and you should be good to go.

How to resolve the memory low system


Hi Anon, this is Microsoft's answer to low memory messages, and I would only add the suggestion that you check for viruses and other unwanted programs hogging your computer's memory. How to prevent low memory problems Running fewer programs at one time can help prevent low memory problems and information loss. It's a good idea to observe which programs show signs of low memory conditions and try not to run them at the same time.
However, it's not always convenient or practical to run a limited number of programs. Signs of low memory can indicate that the computer needs more RAM to support the programs you use. Here are the recommended ways to solve or prevent low memory problems:
  • Increase the paging file (virtual memory) sizeWindows automatically attempts to increase the paging file size the first time your computer becomes low on memory, but you can also manually increase it up to a maximum size that is determined by the amount of RAM installed. Although increasing the paging file size can help prevent low memory problems, it can also make your programs run more slowly. Because your computer reads information from RAM much faster than from a hard disk (where the paging file is), making too much virtual memory available to programs will slow them down.
    For more information, see Change the size of virtual memory.
  • Install more RAM
    If you see signs of low memory, or if Windows warns you about a low memory problem, check the information that came with your computer or contact the computer manufacturer to determine which type of RAM is compatible with your computer, and then install more RAM. To install RAM, check the information provided by the manufacturer.
    For more information, see Find out how much RAM your computer has.
  • Determine if a program overuses memory
    If the computer becomes low on memory whenever you run certain programs, one or more of those programs might have a memory leak. To stop a memory leak, you need to close the program. To repair a memory leak, you need to check for updates for the program or contact the publisher of the software.
    To determine which program is using the most memory, follow these steps:
    1. Open Task Manager by right-clicking the taskbar, and then clicking Start Task Manager.
    2. Click the Processes tab.
    3. To sort programs by memory usage, click Memory (Private Working Set).
    You can also check for program errors and troubleshooting information using Event Viewer.
    1. Open Event Viewer by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, clickingAdministrative Tools, and then double-clicking Event Viewer. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    2. In the left pane, click Applications and Services Logs to view error events. To see a description of the problem, double-click the event. To see if troubleshooting information is available, look for a link to online Help.

    For more information, see What information appears in event logs (Event Viewer)?

Over a couple of months my Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop keeps telling me I have very low disk space. Ive removed all my pics, music and alot more! it is pratically empty now! I regulary have to run Disk...


'Low Disk Space' Could be talking about your virtual memory. Sounds as if your RAM is experiencing problems and your Virtual Memory cache is not high enough.

I get a "virtual memory is low" error message. How do I correct


You have two different & independent problems. I will solve them one by one.

First of all, for increasing VIRTUAL MEMORY you should Right Click on "MY COMPUTER" then choose "Properties", then goto "Advanced" tab and then in "Performance" frame click "Settings" and then again goto "Advanced" tab and there you will see a "Virtual Memory" frame and then click on "Set" and increase the size of your virtual memory.

Second problem is due to installing many instances of XP. You can re-format your whole drive again and you will enjoy a fresh & single copy of XP again.

if you finds any difficulty or any doubt is there then feel free to contact me again.

If this solution was helpful to you then please rate 100% (or FIXYA) for this solution, otherwise don't rate at all. It was my pleasure helping you.
