There's a few reasons your PC is giving you this message. If you're running too many programs at once it may be using too much virtual memory from what you have. Increasing your RAM on your PC really helps that problem too. If you change the minimum size of virtual memory available that can help. Go to: Control Pannel, System, Advanced system settings, on advanced tab under performance click settings, click the advanced tab and from there you can make the apropriate system changes for the programs you regularly run and what programs may need more virtual memory during usage.

My pc is running low on virtual memory when i use the internet


In general, you want to set your minimum virtual memory to about 3 times the total amount of memory installed in the machine.(3072MB for each gig of ram) The maximum should be 4096 more than the minimum setting.
To check this, right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties". Click on the "Advanced" tab and click the "Settings" button in the "Performance" section. On the "Performance Options" panel, click the "Advanced" tab. The virtual memory button is at the bottom (on xp machines). Selcect "custom" and then set the values according to how much ram you have in the machine. For more, check here.

I trying to play my pc games on my computer but I get an message saying my windows virtual memory is too low. How do I fix this problem?


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.

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

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.

Get message, window virtual memory minimum too low


  1. Right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
  2. Select the Advanced tab, and, under Performance, select the Settings button.
  3. Select the Advanced tab again, and, under the Virtual Memory area, select Change.
  4. Select Custom Size, and set the Initial Size to at least 1.5 times the amount of physical memory, although 3000 is a good number; then set the Maximum Size at least 500 above the Initial Size.
  5. Click the Set button to the right of those 2 spaces and then OK all the way back to the Desktop.

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.
