Virtual Memory..LACK OF

Hi all,

I hope you can help me. My PC keeps saying its very low on virtual memory and its going really slow and the screen keeps freezing, is there anything I can do to speed up my computer and get more virtual memory ?

Is there any free downloads or tips you think will help...so far I have defragmented, disc cleaned and I have started to use a program called Glary Utilities, but none of his is helping.

I hope someone can help as I'm wasting a lot of time staring at a frozen screen these days and its really frustrating.

Regards,

    Hi Compiz,

    Thanks for that advice on how to change my virtual memory settings. They currently look like this:-

    I have 176MB RAM

    Total paging file size for all drives:-

    Minimum allowed - 2MB
    Recommended - 261MB
    Currently Allocated - 262MB

    And I have set them up as....

    Initial 176MB
    Max Size 264MB

    ...................

    Basically I am still having the same problems, my PC keeps freezing and in general everything is going so slow its unbelievable.

    Any more tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,

My acard technology pro burns dvds but the target dvds end up all scratchy like quality the pixels move and everything


is resolutions pixel problem only on the dvd disks you burn?
you might have to save the dvd to a file first then burn it to a dvd
are you copyning from another dvd or from a saved file ??
you might be burning it as data
this might be a problem with the quality of the dvd disks you are using or might be the software you are using there are lots of free burning sofrware programs on the internet
this might be because you have not selected the option to burn an audio or data dvd or your burning software does not support dvd burning
there are plenty of free burning software programs on the internet

Needs driver for vista or win 7 Sony VRD-VC10 DVD±RW Dual Layer Burner


Sony does not support this burner for any operating system for Win2k and XP. The VRD-VC30 is supported in Win7 but no earlier models (from the Microsoft Compatibility Center). The Vista Compatibility Center lists the VRD-VC20 as unknown for Vista support.

There are work-arounds. Install XP as a virtual computer or in a dual boot configuration on your system and install the hardware on the "XP box". If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download and install the XP mode for a free virtual computer. (This requires you to download two programs from Microsoft and install them (Virtual PC and the XP mode itself). Otherwise, you will need a valid XP license to install in the virtual computer software. The dual boot may work better for you since virtual computers can't share files from the main computer directly. They need to be transfered to external media or a different partition or disc that unmounted from the real computer and mounted on the virtual computer.

I hope this helps.

Windows XP wont read DVDS and resolution sucks.


You will need to restore the original software installation. If your warranty is still in effect you will want to contact Dell for service, this is the best possible opportunity for a complete recovery and a happier outlook

Burn errors cant get drive to write


It looks like from error codes that yoi may have a hardware error, or a disk format problem, if this is only burning problem you have on pc and it worked before, then uninstall and reinstall Nero, info gathered from here,

sense code 5 ASC 2c= 5 / 2C / 00 COMMAND SEQUENCE ERROR

Please give good rating if this helps you or points you in right direction, thanks

Cd rom drive and cd burner drive accidently removed


Not sure what OS you have, have you tried removing the drive in the device manager, and then restarting your machine to see if your OS reports new hardware? Or have you tried removing the new memory and restarting the system to see if you problem goes away? I might try this first.

Was anything else attempted or unplugged when installing the new memory?

System requirements for using LG GSA 4163B to burn DL discs


512 should be enough. As long as you have enough hard drive space windows should take care of creating virtual memory with the swap file.

I see no reason at all why 512 wouldn't be enough ram to burn a disc. If you are running out of memory take a look at what programs are running on the system and try to close some of the larger ones.

Writing to DVD takes excessive amount of time


The problem is that you might not have sufficient memory. Try burning @ 8x. Burning DVDs at 16x is a speed higher than the speed @ which file transfer takes place within the pc. So the lack of availability of memory slows down the proces. I once had the same problem.

I hope u find it helpful sir...
