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--

Acer aspire, windows 7, frequently hangs and crashes. Perfmon shows virtually no free memory (<100 Mb) with kernel non-paged memory at 75% of total memory (4096 Mb) available. CPU is idle. Any idea


Something consumes too much memory.
1) If you are running "memory demanding" applications, this might be the case
2) If you have caught some malware, that might be the case as well
3) You might have to check how much virtual memory you have allocated to your system and in case it is low, try to increase it!

First of all, check if there is/are aplications (and what they are..) which consume memory...

Hi,

To make your system run faster there are few things you can try.
1. clean out as much things from starting during system startup.
2. check your user profile, reduce your profile as much as possible. create a folder on the root of the C-drive and move as much stuffs off your desktop and mydocument.
3. Make sure you have enough disk space.
4. you can try to increase the virtural memory a little more.
5. last thing is get more 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.

Windows Virtual Memory Minimum is Low


fairly normal occurrence but you should have a look at your performance settings
go to control panel
double click system icon
click the advanced tab at the top
by performance click settings
in pop up window click advanced tab
at the bottom you'll see virtual memory

most common option now is to set the radio button to system managed size
you should then ok each window.....

Need to upgrade from Windows ME to Windows XP or Viesta


Yes you can upgrade to windows xp service pack 2/3 without problem. I recommend you update the bios (rompaq) from the revision on the compaq site, and install at least a second
SDRAM 256mb memory module in it first or it will run slow and hang up frequently. I've been running mine on XP for years, still using it now;) (with 384 memory-one 128chip and one 256 chip)

Run Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
2. From the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following key: \System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\SubSystems
3. Select the Windows value.
4. From the Edit menu, choose String.
5. Increase the SharedSection parameter.
For Windows NT:
SharedSection specifies the system and desktop heaps using the following format:
SharedSection=xxxx,yyyy
Add ",256" or ",512" after the yyyy number.
For Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003:
SharedSection uses the following format to specify the system and desktop heaps:
SharedSection=xxxx,yyyy,zzz
Increase the zzz number to "256" or "512."

Best Of Luck!!

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
