Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Minimum virtual memory low, keeps poping up on screen. I have 224mb ram. What is best settings for initial and max memory? I play alot of games and watch tv online? My computer becomes really slow and it freezes up.
Ok let me help you, hopefully you have atleast 2GB of hard drive space left.
Step 1: Double-click Control Panel
Step 2: Double-click System
Step 3: Click on the advanced Tab
Step 4: Click the "Settings" button under Performance
Step 5: Under Performance options Click on the Advanced Tab
Step 6: Click "Change" under Virtual Memory
Step 7: Select Custom Size, ( if custome size is grayed out uncheck Automaticall manage paging...)
Step 8: Change Custom Size to 2048, if you have more than 3 Gigabytes on your harddrive available, change the custom size to 3072.
Step 9: Hit the "Set" button then "ok"
You may need to restart your computer after this is complete.
This is really just a temporary fix. I would suggest purchasing more Ram for your computer. If you would like you may reply to this message with the make and model of your computer and I will gladly look up what you need to upgrade.

Let Windows manage your memory and other resource allocation to provide you the best performance of your computer. If this "best performance" suggestion by Windows makes no good effects, then you have to consider upgrading your hardware.
To let windows give you the settings for best performance, try this:
1. Right click on My Computer icon on your desktop and click "Properties"
2. Click the "Advance Tab" and under the "Performance" group, click the "Settings" button.
3. In the dialog box that pops up, click on "Adjust for best performance" option.
