There are two pretty simple solutions.
1. Close all other open programs before you try to play your game. You don't have enough virtual memory (RAM) to run multiple programs at once.
2. If you receive the same message when only running your game, then you just don't have enough RAM to handle the game. You need to upgrade your ram - verify which type you need and go buy it! It's very easy to install, especially in desktops.
To avoid this in the future, be sure to read the necessary system specs needed to run the game, and be sure you meet or exceed the minimum requirements before purchasing the game.

Hi. I have windows XP 2007. Each day, when I first log on, a message says: "Virtual memory too low. Windows is increasing memory on your paging files." This takes an hour. If I reboot during the same day,...


Google "virtual memory too low solution." Trusted sources are PC Magazine, Microsoft...

(In my case, I ran "msconfig", go to "Start up" tab and uncheck programs I did not want Windows to load at boot. That would free up memory.).

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.

Juiced wont start because it asks virtual memory to be enabled


the best fix is to open up properties, click run in windows xp and...da da! it works (as long as youre running in vista). this is to do with vista being able to employ more ram than xp.

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.

Every time i try to load the first level my computer keeps crashi


it sounds like you're running low on RAM. Try closing all other programs before you run this game. If it still doesn't work you may need to upgrade your RAM. Has this game ever worked on your computer?

Virtual Memory Minimum Too Low


Hi!

Here's the procedure on how to increase virtual memory of your PC:

Right click on My Computer > left click on Properties > Advanced > Settings > Advanced. Under Virtual memory left click on Change.

Select (left click) on the Drive on wich Windows XP is installed. In most cases this will be Drive C.

Under Drive:
Space available: Select the radio button labeled: Custom size:

To play it safe, in both the Initial (MB)size: and Maximun size: dialogue boxes type 2560 (i.e. allocate 2.5GB for the pagefile) provided you have the free memory space to spare. If you don't have enough free memory available enter the amount of memory you can spare, and meanwhile seriously consider getting a larger Hard Drive.

Mine is set to 4096MB (4GB), max. allowed by XP. This may seem like quite a lot, but the reason for this is that recent games now require a lot more real and virtual memory to function correctly, even if you have 2GB of RAM. Having a larger pagefile size does not hurt performance as such; it only takes up a bit of additional disk space.

After setting the new page file size left click on
OK > OK > OK. Then restart the computer.
