I wish you could tune up your PC

Start -> run -> temp -> Ok
Delete all the temp files there

Start->run->%temp% -> ok
Delete all the files there

Start -> run-> prefetch -> ok
Delete all the files there

Start -> All programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Clean up
Put a check on Recycle, temp files, etc and continue
Reboot the computer and see the difference..

I keep getting a low memory error and that i need to close some programs or i will loose some files


What you need to do is right-click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab. Click "Settings," click "Advanced" and under the Virtual Memory heading, click "Change." Click the custom size setting and put the minimum at the same amount of RAM you have (ie 1 gb = 1024, 2 gb = 2048, etc...). Put the maximum at double the amount of RAM you have. This should fix that error.

My pc is being slow and comes up with a message about memory not being read


This error message occurs because the operating system does not allocate a large enough buffer for the maximum string length that is permitted. When the data is larger than the buffer size, the Winlogon service stops unexpectedly and your computer generates the error message.

Sounds like you need to take 30min out of your day and download my favorite program called CCleaner. Trash all of the programs you do not use, and it should make a huge difference!

Good chances are, you have a bad memory stick. If you have 2 memory sticks installed, take one out. If it still does it, put that memory stick back in and pull out the other one. If you're still having problems, you might have to reinstall windows.

ERROR MESSAGES ON COMPUTER


Hi,

I just want to check with you - is that the full error message? Usually it's something like: "The instruction at '<address>' referenced memory at '<address>'. The memory could not be read." So, there might be an address missing. Also, what operating system are you using?

You might try running memtest86 to see if there's anything wrong with the physical memory in your system: http://download.cnet.com/Memtest86/3000-2086_4-10524193.html

You could also try this if you have IE7:

1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. On the menu bar, choose Tools > Internet Options.
3. Click the Security tab.
4. Select the Internet zone and click the Custom Level button. The Security Settings window opens.
5. Scroll down to the Scripting section of Settings.
6. Under Allow paste operations via script, select Enable or Prompt.
7. Click OK to close the Security Settings window.
8. Click Yes when asked if you want to change security settings for this zone.
9. Click OK again to close the Internet Options window.

Error: Page-fAULT_In_Unpaged_ area. Diable BIOS


Nine times out off ten this message is caused by defective memory. If you have more than one stick in the computer, pull them and test them one at a time until the problem triggers again.
Try taking the computer into Safe Mode and see if you still get the message. If you do, then its DEFINITELY the memory.

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.

Hi, I get an error message when I try to connect and install a Maxtor 500 GB external hard drive to my computer. The message reads "the device cannot start (Code 10). Can you assist?


What is the error message you get?

What OS are you using?

Depends on your hard drive, some computer commonly ask for a driver when you plug something in it. might as well try reading the manual of your external hard drive, if it doesn't require a driver, then the problem "might" be in your operating system and/or in your computer.
