Pc gets hang despite updated virus and daily cleaning thru various software and self cleaning too

follow this guide to increase virtual memory:
the rule of thumb is 1.5 times the amount of ram so if you have 512mb set it to 768, 1 gb of ram = 1.5 gb virtual memory.

How to solve low memory problems?

Normally this warning message shows when you run many programs same time than the RAM installed on your computer is designed to support. Your can solve this problem by increasing the system paging file size also called as virtual memory. Using this virtual memory windows moving information to and from the paging file for fast processing. This will free up enough RAM for other programs to run properly.

To increase the system page file follow the give path:

Control Panel > System > Advanced > Click on Settings (Under Performance) > Advanced > Change

Here under Drive (Volume label), you have option to select any of your hard disk drive, but the best choice is, select any drive other than C drive for virtual memory.

Set the double Initial & Maximum Size of your Virtual Memory. Here set initial size 700 MB and maximum size up to 1000MB; you can change this size according to the free space available on your hard drive.

My computer displays an insufficient virtual memory notice, even if i am only running internet explorer

You just try increasing your virtual memory in your system. Right click on My Computer, click the advanced tab. Under Performance click on the button called settings. In that popup, you will have an option to edit your virtual memory. Try increasing it and then see whether the problem persists or not...

What kind of memory module can i add to increase my memory for a hp pavilion a305w. when I am playing games online it says virtual memory low..

Virtual Memory (or Paging File) is controlled on your computer and is actually space on your hard drive. In windows XP, go to START, right click My Computer and select Properties. Under the Hardware Tab, select Settings under Performance. In the Advanced Tab, under Virtual Memory, select Change. Set the Paging File Size to "System Managed". Click Set>OK>OK>OK.

This error should go away now, unless your hard drive is getting full. Check to make sure that you have at least 25% free space on the hard drive where the Paging File is set up.

Did this solve your problem? If so, please rate this. ty.

To determine if the laptop has a problem with the inverter of low virtual memory issues, plug an external monitor in to the laptop and you can change the virtual memory by following these instructions, right click on my computer, select properties, then select advanced, click on virtual memory and change the settings to system detemined, save settings and reboot the laptop without the external monitor to see if it is virtual memory or inverter.
