Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I recently had a 2nd Motherboard put in my CPU because I kept getting the message that my Virtual Memory was low. After putting it in, however, I was able to use it for a couple of days and then I'd get the message that My Monitor is Working, check you PC and Signal Cable. In looking thru the Internet, I'm thinking that since the Tech I had putting in the additional Motherboard had problems getting it in, that it could be what's causing the problem now. Any ideas?

YES! If he/she forced, banged, staticly-charged the mother board you could in fact have a short on the mother board. Now, because your virtual memory is low... Well, that is no reason to change out anything. That is all software controled and accesses the hard drive (clearning temp. memory durring disk clean up and such.)

Game Running And After 1 Hour Totaly Hang


There are many solutions to this problem.
First- Try to see whether your cpu fan is making loud noise. if this is the problem then try to do the following way. This requires opening of the cpu cabinet. if you are not aware of the following terms then donot open consult a service personnel.
your cpu might be heating up so try to remove the cpu fan and then remove the old white screen on the bottom of the cpu heat sink and on top of cpu, which is the heat sink solution. try to replace it with a new. get the thermal paste and place it on the top of cpu and heat sink and then reassemble.

Second: if you are experiencing a slow perfomance of the game from the starting then you need to increase your virtual memory. this you can do as in windows-XP---> Right click on my computer---> properties---> advanced---> performance settings---> advanced and there in the virtual memory tab set the virtual memory. just google virtual memory and you can find many images to set it.

Third: old Drivers. this can also be the problem. this again depends on the type of game you are using.

try all these and still if this doesn't work then again come back i`ll be always happy to help

Windows XP Virtual Memory is low. How can I regain memory?


Virtual memory is "memory" on your hard drive, not actual memory. The best way to regain this is reboot and shut down some of the stuff that runs automatically when you DO boot up.

(This Virtual memory is space set aside on your hard drive that the processor moves data into and out of like it would put data on a memory module ... but in comparing the two, the virtual memory is SLOW.)


You can increase the size of your virtual memory to anything you want. Some say too large a allocation will slow you down and too little will cause crashing or slow opertion. You are 99.44% probably set to let Windows manage your virtual memory (default) at this time.

Virtual memory


The topic of Virtual Memory can be confusing for some folks, but I'll try to explain it as best I can (starting with the basics).
RAM, or, "Random Access Memory", exists in every computer. RAM are actually pieces of hardware (chips) and are used to store temporary data. The temporary data is then used for computation by the CPU (Central Processing Unit) at a later time.
So, for example: when you double click to view a movie file on your computer, it is first loaded into RAM (a chunk at a time), then moved to the CPU (Central Processing Unit) where it is processed and decoded, and eventually output to the screen and sound card. And voila, you have your movie.
RAM is also known as "Primary Memory". Comparatively, Virtual Memory (also known as Secondary Memory or Page Memory) is used in place of Primary Memory, but only if there is no Primary Memory available at the time.
Since Virtual Memory is stored on the hard drive, it is significantly slower than RAM; therefore, virtual memory usage should be avoided whenever possible. To compare: hard drive speeds are measured in Milliseconds (MS) where as RAM speeds are measured in Nanoseconds (NS). Generally speaking, the more RAM a computer has, the faster, or "more optimized" it is -- especially when switching between tasks.
If you are constantly getting the message that your system needs to increase Virtual Memory settings and you're not overworking the PC, I would suspect a memory leak. This is, of course, assuming that you haven't played with your virtual memory settings in Windows (it's best to leave it alone or restore to default).


FIX
look in Control Panel: System, Advanced, Performance, Settings, Advanced, Virtual Memory. I believe it's in a similar location in other versions of Windows.

Low Virtual Memory problem


For some reason your CPU is not using your RAM for memory. It is going to the .pagesys file, which is a file on your hard drive that holds Virtual Memory. Virtual memory is only used when you run out of RAM. So here are your choices.
You are going to need to buy a copy of Windows XP or whatever operating system you want. Then you try two things: First Format your current hard drive to wipe it clean and reload Windows XP. That should clear up your problem if it is a software issue. If that does not work then it is a bad hard drive (but I don't think it is).
If it is a hardware issue, your hard drive is corrupt, then you will need to install a new hard drive and then partition, format and load WIndows XP. Either one of those options will get you running again.

Please rate this solution.

Virtual memory


Your hard drive is getting to full for it to be used as virtual memory
When normal memory gets used up windows uses the hard drive as memory ans if insufficient room on hard drive is not available you get this message.
Solution.
1) delete programs from hard drive to create more space
2) Install new hard drive and transfer programs to it. creating more room on C drive
3) If hard drive is already partitioned and 2nd partition has a lot of free space transfer Virtual over to it.

Go to Start / Control panel Open The System folder go to "Advanced" "performance settings"
Then to "Advanced " Click on change and set Virtual memory to new disk.
Set maximum and minimum the same at 3 times the amount of normal memory you ave

Unable to start - do not get post.


First of all that is too old system that you are using, problems can be your CPU's golden legs are not connected well on motherboard, second your ram memory is not working good, maybe is slower or faster than that motherboard can receive.
First of all disconnect everything from motherboard ...if it does not work :

1. Remove cooler from cpu
2. remove cpu from socket, turn around CPU and look at those golden legs if they are moved aside
3. if they are moved turn them back on the line use needle or small pocket knife to do it and do it carefully
4. carefully place CPU back in socket
5. put CPU protective grease
6. put back cooler on CPU
7. remove ram memory from slots
8. look at the golden legs if there is no broken use clean cotton swabs and pure medical alchohol and clean the ram golden legs put the ram back in slot
9, do the same with your graphics card if you are using AGP slot
10. put back power cable 20 pins and 4 pins
11. Connect keyboard and monitor cable
12. Use screwdriver to shorten the power on pins

If it does not work than you should say goodbye to that motherboard and old technology that you are using and buy motherboard socket 775 or socket AM2 and new cpu and ram its cheap this days to have real dual core computer.

No Power to Motherboard...


Here are some steps.

Attach the monitor in your CPU and plug it, see if the monitor powers up. If it did, then no problem in your power supply,

Detach the RAM or Memory of your CPU and put it back in, in the different slot. and power up your computer.

Check the cpu power switch if it is correctly attached to the motherboard.
