Compaq presario sr1320nx slow virtulal memery low


Each program that is simultaneously running on your computer is using some of the RAM. If the sum of the sizes of those programs is larger than the total amount of RAM installed on your computer, then Windows writes some of the contents of RAM to the disk-drive (compare to moving a book off the kitchen table onto the bookshelf, to make room for a different book on the table).
When Windows is finding that "too much" of the RAM has been written onto the disk-drive (because you are running "too many" programs at the same time), then you get the "low virtual memory" message. Windows will reserve additional space on the disk-drive, but this will take up to 1 minute.

My computer displays an insufficient virtual memory notice, even if i am only running internet explorer


You just try increasing your virtual memory in your system. Right click on My Computer, click the advanced tab. Under Performance click on the button called settings. In that popup, you will have an option to edit your virtual memory. Try increasing it and then see whether the problem persists or not...

Opening programs is so slow virtual memory running low


which operating system you are using and what is the ram capacity? and onemore thing to check what is your virtual memory capacity. for that

Right click "mycomputer" > properties > advanced >click settings on performance > in advanced tab > increase virtual memory file size.
generally its size is ram capacity * 2 (ex: for 512mb its virtual memory size is 1GB) check that and we can increase the file size also.

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.

Still wont boot


Disk boot failure is usually a sign that your operating system has become corrupt in some way.
If you've got your Windows disc, put that in the CD rom, then boot the computer.
There's a "repair" option that you can select, instead of re-installed Windows.
That *should* fix the problem.
It's also (thought unlikely) possible that your hard drive has died completely.
