    Rylee Smith already solved the problem, but you must not use terms that
    everyone does not understand - what is low memory Ram etc.. The other
    day it took me awhile to get the answers to questions requested because
    no one told me how to talk to you and examineMY COMPTER at same time. I
    am sure you are well aware of all this stuff but not me, I just use my
    computer for email and some web work so I am not aware, nor do I want
    to be, aware of all the ins and outs, I am not a computer geek. I am
    sure other people have same comment, your ad I saw was in AARP magazine
    and that is for people over 55, remember. Thanks.

Actually you need to load high memory ram if u r using the low memory. if u r already using right ram for your system then just reinstall the windows after installation the windows your problem will be solved and remember do not forget to install the anti virus after the new windows then your computer can work longer.

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.

CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME HOW MUCH VIRTUAL MEMORY DOES A PATRIOT 2006 LAPTOP HAVE


Virtual memory?

Virtual memory is created and used by windows operating system.
This value can be changed and solely depends on the hard drive space available.

Simply put There isnt any limit, nor a minimum. The amount of virtual memory depends on how much was set up and can be increased or decreased at any time.

The purpose of virtual memory is to allow windows to use part of your hard drive as rams.

virtual memory and rams (conventional memory are different things)
you can have as much or as little as u need. increasing it improves performance.

So No one can actually answer that question. Simply put any amount you want is the correct answer!.

Virtual memory


Your hard drive is getting to full for it to be used as virtual memory
When normal memory gets used up windows uses the hard drive as memory ans if insufficient room on hard drive is not available you get this message.
Solution.
1) delete programs from hard drive to create more space
2) Install new hard drive and transfer programs to it. creating more room on C drive
3) If hard drive is already partitioned and 2nd partition has a lot of free space transfer Virtual over to it.

Go to Start / Control panel Open The System folder go to "Advanced" "performance settings"
Then to "Advanced " Click on change and set Virtual memory to new disk.
Set maximum and minimum the same at 3 times the amount of normal memory you ave

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.

Virtual Memory Minimum Too Low


Hi!

Here's the procedure on how to increase virtual memory of your PC:

Right click on My Computer > left click on Properties > Advanced > Settings > Advanced. Under Virtual memory left click on Change.

Select (left click) on the Drive on wich Windows XP is installed. In most cases this will be Drive C.

Under Drive:
Space available: Select the radio button labeled: Custom size:

To play it safe, in both the Initial (MB)size: and Maximun size: dialogue boxes type 2560 (i.e. allocate 2.5GB for the pagefile) provided you have the free memory space to spare. If you don't have enough free memory available enter the amount of memory you can spare, and meanwhile seriously consider getting a larger Hard Drive.

Mine is set to 4096MB (4GB), max. allowed by XP. This may seem like quite a lot, but the reason for this is that recent games now require a lot more real and virtual memory to function correctly, even if you have 2GB of RAM. Having a larger pagefile size does not hurt performance as such; it only takes up a bit of additional disk space.

After setting the new page file size left click on
OK > OK > OK. Then restart the computer.
