Goto System Properties by right clicking My computer -> Advanced ->Performance ->settings ->Advanced and then you will see virtual memory, ideal to change it less than 2000MB.

My laptop keeps freezing its a dell latitude d610

If you are receiving virtual memory low errors then the first thing you should consider doing is upgrading your physical memory to prevent the use of virtual memory. You may also have too many applications running on the start up of your computer which will cause massive issues.
The D610 comes standard with 256mb of memory (unless you opt to upgrade at time of purchase). To upgrade this you may purchase memory by clicking here.
The above link is to newegg and using Kingston memory. This is reliable memory coming from a reliable distributor. I would suggest purchasing two of these chips to max your system out at 2GBs of memory (YOU MUST BUY 1GB CHIPS).
When you flip your laptop over there is a panel that should have an M or an icon that looks like a micro chip which you will remove. The memory banks will be under here. If you only see one under this panel then the other will be under the keyboard. To remove the keyboard you will find all the screws that are labeled with a K or a Keyboard icon then the Keyboard will lift off. Be careful not to disconnect the keyboard and just move it enough to install the memory (if you need to go under the keyboard at all).
This memory upgrade will resolve many of your memory related issues. If these issues do persist however then your computer may be overwhelmed at startup with various pieces of software launching and you will need your system optimized.

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.

After loading service pack 2, my system is running much slower. memory 512. help

you need to increase your virtual memory (since you upgraded your service pack, most likely it will consume more ram)

from My Computer - Right Click > Properties

Then click on the Advanced Tab > Then click on perfomance settings

Then Click advance > Virtual Memory Settings

You can change it to say, 1000 (since you have 512 RAM ) to support the excess applications.

Let me know what happens.

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.

Want to increase cache memmory .I am not sure where it is on motherboard or what type of memmory to order

L1 & L2 cache memory is actually on your CPU so it is not something you can upgrade.

If you are talking about Virtual Memory, that is different, as it is a file that resides on your Hard disk (not a memory chip at all) the size of your Virtual memory is allocated by your operating system. but is user customisable.
