Hi there,

First, make sure your drive isn't full. If the amount of free space is under about 10 percent of your total hard drive, you'll need to free up some space. You can use the Disk Cleanup button right next to the free space indicator, or manually move some files , or uninstall unnecessary applications—whatever it takes to get more free space.

Now check out you virtual-memory settings. this may need to be checked. Right-click My Computer and choose Properties. Click the Advanced tab. Click the Settings button in the Performance panel. Click the Advanced tab in the Performance dialog. Click the Change button in the Virtual memory panel. Whew! This setting is buried quite thoroughly! Look for the System managed size option, select it if it isn't already selected, this setting should be 1 1/2 times your RAM memory. then click OK, OK, OK. That should end the warnings. u should be all set.

Try freeing some space using Disk Cleanup. You can also try deleting files stored in the history through internet options.

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...


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.)

When I am playing XENO Assault II, it crashes and says virtual Memory error, I have a 256MB ATI Radeon X1300 Pro video card, and 2 gigs of memory. I was thinking about upgrading my processor to a Intel®...


Virtual memory is actually part of a computer's physical memory that comes in the form of memory chips or RAMs. So what right? Well, it is a necessary evil and in order for your computer to run numerous programs simultaneously (at the same time), it looks for areas of RAM (Random Access Memory) that is not currently being used and it copies files over to what is called page files. This is simply a process that allows RAM to free up space and subsequently load new or additional applications. This process is technically called thrashing and the result of it can cause the computer to react somewhat slower in its functions. However, when the computer hard drive (virtual memory) which is slower than the installed memory chips wants to correct itself, it has to constantly swap between the RAM and the hard disk drive.
What Causes These Windows Out of Virtual Memory Error Messages?
  1. The first and foremost probability is that the Windows operating platform page file maximum file size - is too small. You may think your system has a large amount of virtual memory (RAM) because the person that sold you the computer told you so. Well, this may or may not be the actuality if page files are set too low and you are getting error messages. Obviously if you are getting an error message page files are being maxed out and something needs to be changed to correct the situation.
  2. There could have been a power failure or, you shut your computer off incorrectly which led to a file or files becoming corrupted and this subsequent virtual memory message beginning to haunt you. So the two lessons learned here is to have a back-up source of power and, to always get into the practice of properly shutting down Windows via the start button where it reads "Turn off computer" in lieu of simply hitting the power off button.
Okay, so now that you have an idea of what virtual memory is, system thrashing and how it suddenly became an irritant error message, what can be done to make things right in your Windows operating platform?
Realize that although Windows automatically sets both minimum (the amount of RAM installed on your PC + 300 MB) and maximum (3 times the amount of installed RAM) to its page file sizes if you do get that virtual memory error message - then you can do the following steps to increase these minimum and maximum page file sizes;
Re-Setting Windows 2000 virtual page file sizes
  1. Right-click My Computer , and than click Properties
  2. Within System Properties menu box, click Advanced
  3. Click Performance Options . Within this pane (Virtual Memory), click Change to increase the paging file. Take special note that your Windows 2000 minimal value requires at least 126 MB for debugging.
  4. After you change (increase) the setting, click Set, and than click OK to the following message you will receive;
  5. The changes you have made require you to restart your computer before they can take effect.
  6. Click OK to close the Performance Options menu, and than click OK to close the Systems Properties menu.
  7. When prompted to restart your computer, simply respond to Yes
Re-Setting Windows XP virtual page file sizes
  1. Click Start , right click My Computer, and than click Properties
  2. In the System Properties menu box, click the Advanced tab.
  3. In the Performance menu, click Settings
  4. In the Performance Options menu, click upon the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Virtual Memory menu, click Change
  6. Change the Initial and Maximum Value Sizes to a higher value, click Set and than click OK
  7. Click OK to close Performance Options menu, and finally OK to close the Systems Properties menu
Re-Setting Windows Vista virtual page file sizes .
  1. Click on the Start button, click Control Panel, click System and Maintenance, and then click System
  2. In the left pane, click Advanced system settings. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. On the Advanced menu, under Performance, click Settings
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory menu, click Change
  5. Clear the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box.
  6. Under Drive [Volume Label] , click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.
A CPU upgrade would be a good idea, the core 2 duo is a superb processor.
Also a bit more ram perhaps another gig or two? and maybe a 512mb graphics cards would be good for gaming.
perhaps a better power supply too as E520 was not really designed for gaming.

BIOS update


1. Check your PC or motherboard manufacture for BIOS upgrade and upgrade BIOS firmware.
2. Try to start your PC in a safe mode by pressing F8 before windows starts. Then select a safe mode with or without network support.
3. If your computer starts in the safe mode, check if your hard drive is not full or close to full. If it is close to full you need to remove some data from your disk. Try to remove temporary files and clear your Recycle Bin. Restart your computer.
4. You might run low on your memory. If your PC doesn't have enough physical memory, windows is creating virtual memory by using space from your hard drive.
5. If neither solution works, try to run a "CHKDSK C: /R" from recovery console.

Good luck!!!

Temporary Internet Files


Temporary internet files could harm your pc if the files contents virus, this could also slow your pc because if you have files that was infected with virus specifically the application files. Those files were automatically load into the services and in the processes and also in the start up without your consent. If all these files will run in the system this will cause " a low virtual memory" because the memory speicified was use by these useless and annoying application.

If you encounter these problem i would suggest that scan you computer with a potent antivirus, you should empty the temporary files and the recycled bin.

If you are sure that the computer is virus free and still encountering the "low virtual memory" you can increase your virtual memory by doing these:

1 right click my computer and then properties
2. click the advance tab
3. in the performance., click setting
4. then " advance tab"
5. in the virtual memory click change
6. check custom setting
7. in the initial size double the size of your memory
7. maximum double the initial size you setted.

If these will not solve the problem i would recommend you to format and reinstall your system.

Hope this help

Internet explorer not opening (memory problem?)


if your system is running low on memory, the pc will not be able to run the programmes as normal as it will use virtual memory which enables the system to open up programmes that you use regularly without searching for the start up files reciding on the hard drive, but if your system is low you will get these screen messages. Either upgrade the system with more memory or check what programmes you have running on start up using your memory, press start>run, then type msconfig and look at the start up tab and untick any unnecassary programmes that start up,then click apply for a restart, as this will release some of your memory. On the other hand there may well be a problem with internet explorer itself also, so you can download the latest IE7 from microsoft if you wish and see if this solves the runtime issue
