Hi!

It means you might have ran out of space in your hard drive and don't have enough space to create a new file. You need to delete all the temporary internet files and coockies. This will resolve your issue.

Ask for any further clarification.

Thanks for using Fixya

    You can also defragment the disk, then copy them back. Memory keys sometimes lose data.

    The standard XP defragmenter defragments the files, but doesn't
    defragment the free space. This is where JKDefrag is better; it
    defragments the files, and as far as possible conglomerates the free space as well.

    You may download JKDefrag from the following link--

Upgrade memory for Compaq Presario R3000 PC Notebook


What OS are you running? 768 should be enough to run XP and keep you from getting that error message. On laptops their are normally just 2 slots for ram, so you would need to replace the 256 with the 512, which would bring you up to a gig of ram. Do you know if your computer has any spyware/adware on it? Sometimes malware can take up all your memory and generate just such an error. Do you know how many processes are running when you first login? Thank you.

3. Make sure you have enough disk space.

Frequent message - virtural memory is low, increasing memory


Many times upgrading the ram amount will correct this problem. You may also upgrade you Video card for one that has a lot more memory chips(Total Ram) on it, since you have a desk top type computer. I have included a link in case you have misplaced you manual to see the original specifications. Ram and Video cards are available on line for such places as : Newegg.com               or            Tiger.com              to name two.

I need to increase virtual memory


I don't wish to sound rude but if you don't know how to do this, you prolly should just let windows continue managing it. A few wrong keystrokes can have major repurcussions

Getting "Not enough memory available to complete this operation" error message using Sound Recorder


This problem occurs because of a design limitation in Sound Recorder and not because of any problem with the underlying multimedia. That means that the program is unable to access more than 2 gigs of memory by design.
