Hi..my dell xps M1210 can not read the memory stick pro duo 2 gb what can I do ? can you hel me please..?


Hi! Welcome to FixYa!

Memory Sticks has many types, Memory Stick duo, Memory Stick Pro Duo. Memory stick duo is basically the first generation Memory stick and in terms of capacity and speed, it is slower and low in capacity. Memory stick Pro Duo is faster and capacity is larger, speed is faster..

For your issue, the XPS M1210 can only support Memory Stick Duo since it is quite an older machine and during that time, memory stick duo has just released. Have you tried other memory sticks for you to isolate the issue?

You have 2 options for this, first, try contacting Dell and ask for updated firmware for your memory card reader and other option is to use a USB memory stick pro reader that supports your memory card. Hope this helps.

Solution to Virtual Memory Too Low Problem


This problem was reported by one of our readers that in spite of having a sufficient amount of RAM, he is running out of Virtual Memory and his Windows PC gives the following error:

19f986e.png
Your system is low on virtual memory. To ensure that Windows runs properly, increase the size of your virtual memory paging file. For more information, see Help.
This is a common problem and you may have seen it if you are trying to open many heavy applications at the same time like Microsoft Office.
Let’s see what the causes are and what can be done at this stage.
Windows XP or Vista uses the concept of Virtual Memory that aims at providing the additional memory from the Hard Disk if most of the RAM of the computer is already occupied. This memory used from the Hard Disks is called Paging File. Windows reserve some part of the memory for this purpose only (this is one of the reasons why we see less memory than specified on the hard disk).
Virtual Memory also known as Page File or Swap File can be located at C:\pagefile.sys (it is system hidden and can be viewed if you Uncheck the option of “Hide Protected Operating System Files” inside Folder Options).

Every time I start my computer, a message pops up: "Low Memory." How do I fix this. Thanks.


Check for the hard drive space where the operating system is installed, normally this message comes when the space is low and windows is not able to create virtual memory required to run windows.

Error message Low on virtual memory


Virtual Memory is used by the operating system as an extension to the Random Access Memory (RAM). When the RAM does not have enough space to accommodate the entire running program, the inactive parts of that program are temporarily shifted to the Virtual Memory. These parts are then swapped back into the RAM as and when needed. If the Virtual Memory set on your system is not enough for the computer operations to run smoothly, then you will get the "Virtual Memory Is Too Low" error message.If operating system is xp then this problem can be easily overcome by increasing the Virtual Memory size.This is how you can do it by following instrutions:

  1. Click on "Start" and then click on "Control Panel.
  2. Double-click on the "System" icon in the Control Panel.
  3. Click on the "Advanced" tab in the System Properties dialog box.
  4. Click on the "Settings" button below Performance.
  5. Click on the "Advanced" tab in the Performance Options dialog box.
  6. Click on the "Change" button below Virtual memory.
  7. Click on a drive_letter below "Drive [Volume Label]" in the Virtual Memory dialog box.
  8. Click on the "Custom size" option.
  9. Click in the "Initial size (MB)" text box and type a larger value (for example, 600).
  10. Click in the "Maximum size (MB)" text box, and type a larger value (for example, 1500).
  11. Click on the "Set" button. Similarly change the Virtual Memory on other drives.
  12. Click on "OK" and then restart your computer.

I believe I have a virus or worm that Norton cannot detect


Ok. How much space do you have free on your hard-drive right now? (I'm assuming that you know how to check this).

If its low, then maybe you didnt free up enough space on the drive. If it is high however, then answer this: is the message you are receiving telling you that you are low on disk space? or is it telling you that it is low on virtual memory space?

if its low on virtual memory, then the problem could be many including 1) virus etc 2) a program is running that is using up more RAM than is avaivable 3) you need more RAM on your system.

if its low disk space, then the problem could be 1) You need to free up more disk space (that may mean getting a bigger hard-drive installed)

Try using an updated virus scanning utility. If it says that you are virus free, then try one of the solutions above.

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.
