Now you will some thing like this
Initial size(MB) = 768
Maximum size -1024

Now here comes the main point and to enter proper values under Initial size (MB) =
and Maximum size =

suppose your ram is of 512 mb than initial size will be
Initial size = 768 ( 512 * 1.5 = 768)
Maximum size = 2304 ( 512 * 1.5 * 3 = 2304)
just enter the values according to calculation and your problem is solved ..if you want you can increase more 'Maximum size' value for faster system optimization .

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.

Virtual memory low, not sure how much I have got and what I can upgrade to? My desktop ser no is 11419107876?


I assume that you got a little balloon in the
bottom right-hand corner announcing that your
virtual memory is low and that Windows is
adjusting it. If this happens just once, don't
worry.

As the message said, Windows found a problem
and fixed it. But if it happens repeatedly,
it could be that your settings don't allow
Windows to make the necessary adjustment.

First, make sure your drive isn't overly full.
In Windows Explorer, right-click the drive
icon and choose Properties.
If the amount of free space is under about
10 percent, 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 to off-line storage,
or uninstall unnecessary applications whatever
it takes to get more free space.

If low drive space isn't the problem, the
virtual-memory settings may be wrong.
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,
and then click OK, OK, OK. That should end the
warnings.

Virtual Memory is the space Windows uses to put information on your Hard drive when there is not enough RAM ( your 512Mb DDR2) to hold it.

To change this you need to Right click on "My computer" and select "properties " click on the Advance tab then click on "Performance/Settings" once in the perfomance section click on "Advanced" again and down near the bottom you will see "Virtual Memory" click on "Change" this will take you to a page hat will show you your C drive and the Paging file Size ( Virtual memory) near the bottom of this pag you will see a minimum allowed a recommended and a currently allocated. above this you need to select "Custom Size " and in the initial size enter the currently allocated number then for the maximum size enter the "recommended" number. Click on "SET" then OK 3 times. You will need to restert your computer for these changes to take effect and once done you should not receive that warning again.

Hope this helps

To determine if the laptop has a problem with the inverter of low virtual memory issues, plug an external monitor in to the laptop and you can change the virtual memory by following these instructions, right click on my computer, select properties, then select advanced, click on virtual memory and change the settings to system detemined, save settings and reboot the laptop without the external monitor to see if it is virtual memory or inverter.
