My vitual memory

The computer says my vitual memory is low what do that mean

  • gaga08 Feb 09, 2008

    I keep getting a warning that my virtual memory is too low. Than the page goes down and I lose whatever I'm working on. I already tried going in and clicked on system managed size, and nothing has worked. My pages keep freezing up and then the page will crash and go back to my desktop. So frustated..I've asked a million people and no one knows what do do. Can you help??

Your pc's virtual memory works as second RAM. When ever any of your programs are used frequently its temp files are stored in virtual memory so that u can have fast access to it. Its size is 336 MB initially. You can change it by right-clicking My computer->Advanced->Advanced Thank u

It means the amount of hard drive free space is either low or it means you must increase the limit of this space. first remove any un-necessary files by doing the following: 1.) open explorer and click c drive. 2.) right click and select properties 3.) select "disk cleanup" now select the Tools tab above and select "check now" now select "Defragment now" next, right click "my computer" on desktop then select Advanced tab and select "settings" then select next Advanced tab and select "change" in the virtual memory area. type in the maximum under custom size and select "set" and ok out.

How to increase the virtual memory of your computer?

To make a movie using Windows Movie Maker Software.

First and foremost, this is for those person/student having the difficulty in making a long movie or slides for their project using Windows movie maker software because it is very head cracking if you make a long movie and your virtual memory is low you cannot save it. Promise! I have experienced that before. I am successful only after I have increased the virtual memory. Here are the steps:

1. Click Start
2. Go to Settings
3. Go to Control Panel
4. Double-click System
5. On the advanced Tab, look for performance and click settings
6. Under Performance Options dialogue box, click advanced tab and look for vitual memory and click change
7. Under virtual memory dialogue box, click the drive you want to increase
8. Click custom size type size you want and click set and click ok.
9. Then, click ok all.

Olah! good luck!

Laptop Freezes and display low vitual memory

Hi there,

The best option is to find out which RAM it uses and purchase some more, as it was a business computer it is most likly only have 256mb of ram as it dont need many programs.

if you purchase 2 1gb sticks this will sort your problem out for under £40.

To reset your computer back to factory setting, you will need to purchase a windows XP operating system disc from a computer store, this will then take you through the steps.

hope this hels
