Low Virtual Memory Error Message-

What is Virtual Memory?

The process of increasing the apparent size of a computer’s RAM (Random Access Memory) by using a section of the hard drive space as an extension of RAM and treating it like real memory, thus virtual memory.  Basically, when the entire RAM on your computer is in use, Windows will attempt to create virtual memory by using hard drive space to create more memory and treat it as such.

Even though your software can’t make the distinction between virtual and real memory, there is a good chance that you will notice your programs and software are running considerably slower because of the hard drive activity that it requires.

Here are initial steps you can take to increase the size of your virtual memory:

Windows 7

1.       Open System by clicking the Start button , right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties.

2.       In the left pane, click Advanced system settings.  If you’re prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

3.       On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.

4.       Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory, 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.

7.       Click Custom size, type a new size in megabytes in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, click Set, and then click OK.

Windows Vista

1.       Open System by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking 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 tab, under Performance, click Settings.

4.       Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory, 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.

7.       Click Custom size, type a new size in megabytes in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, click Set, and then click OK.

Windows XP

  1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
  3. In the Performance pane, click Settings.
  4. In the Performance Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
  5. In the Virtual memory pane, click Change.
  6. Change the Initial size value and the Maximum size value to a higher value, click Set, and then click OK.
  7. Click OK to close the Performance Options dialog box, and then click OK to close the System Properties dialog box.

Windows 2000

  1. Right-click My Computer and then click Properties.
  2. In the System Properties dialog box, click Advanced
  3. Click Performance Options.
  4. In the Virtual memory pane, click Change to increase the paging file.Windows 2000 requires an Initial value of 126 MB for debugging.
  5. After you change the setting, click Set, and then click OK.
  6. In the System Control Panel Applet dialog box, click OK to the following message:

The changes you have made require you to restart your computer before they can take effect.

  1. Click OK to close the Performance Options dialog box, and then click OK to close the System Properties dialog box.
  2. When you are prompted to restart your computer, click Yes.

If you don’t feel like any of these steps have aided in improving your virtual memory issues and if you continue to see signs of low virtual memory, or if Windows warns you about a low virtual memory problem, you should look in to adding more RAM.  The first step is to check with the information that came with your computer to determine which type of RAM is compatible with your computer and here at Geek ABC we offer in-home computer repair for Home and Business computer customers in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area. We serve customers and clients in Virginia (VA), Maryland (MD) and Washington, DC in areas such as Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax, McLean, Great Falls, Oakton, Springfield, Vienna, Bethesda, Silver Spring, Germantown, Rockville, Olney, Potomac, Chevy Chase and Washington DC.

In-Home Computer Repair – Why Choose In-Home Computer Repair?, Alexandria, Arlington, Fairfax, Herndon, Mclean, Reston, Vienna, VA, Washington DC, Bethesda, Silver Spring, Rockville, MD

Here at Geek ABC, when you use our in-home computer repair services, you know that your computer is priority. Chances are, if you drop your computer off at one of your neighborhood “Big Box” stores, there is no guarantee that the technician is 100% dedicated to your computer. With having one of our technician’s in-home, you know that your computer is their #1 priority. Basically, you have your own personal geek there to explain and answer questions about the little things that you need help with in other computer related areas, aside from the main issue at hand.  We can be reached via our website www.geekabc.com, or give us a call at 1.877.GEEKABC (1.877.433.5222) for more information or to schedule an appointment.

With in-home computer repair you don’t have to worry about disconnecting your computer and all of its parts and haul it in to the store. This saves you time, money and gas. Most issues can be fixed same day and if your computer is in need of more extensive help, we will bring it to our shop, perform all the required maintenance and repairs, and return it to you. Whereas, if you take your computer and drop it off at some random “Big Box” store, there is no telling how long it will take them to fix it, it could be a few days up to a few weeks.

Another reason to choose Geek ABC for your in-home computer repair is that we can schedule and provide services at your convenience and our technicians are on-time, friendly, and knowledgeable, not to mention, we fix the problems right in front of you. There’s no need to worry about your personal information being lost or stolen and if you have questions along the way we are there to answer them. And last but not least, compared to “Big Box” stores, our rates are considerably lower, we give a 90 day labor warranty on in-home service calls and we also provide free over-the-phone support to all of our existing customers.

To Repair or Replace-

Ask yourself these three questions:

How old is my computer?

What do I use it for?

What is it worth?

Computers are ones of the most frequently used devices in our homes and offices today.  There isn’t a day that goes by where most of us don’t use one.  So what happens when your computer breaks down or crashes?  The first thing that crosses our minds is how much is this going to cost me to fix…and if I can’t fix it how much is a new one going to cost?  Or, is it going to be more expensive to fix than to just simply replace it?  Due to all of the competition amongst brands these days, computers are fairly inexpensive, but then we have to think about all of the data that is on our computers.  Transferring data from one computer to another is not only timely but can be costly as well.

So the first thing we need to know before we start to make this decision, what’s wrong with my computer?  Why did it break down or crash?  As stated in my previous blog, the most common reasons for a computer crash are, “Bad Drivers”, “Bad Power Supply”, “Corrupt Files (viruses)” and “Overheating”.

Every case of “should I replace it or repair it?” is very different and there really isn’t a straight-forward, simple answer.  If the cost of repair is going to be more than what a new one would cost then it’s better to replace it, but always keep in the back of  your mind, what I said earlier, the data that we keep in our computers can sometimes be irreplaceable.  The best thing that you can do is always keep a backup of your files.  Should you need to transfer your data from an old computer to a new one, Geek ABC will be there to help.  And, here at Geek ABC it’s our job to help you make the best informed decision of whether to repair or replace your computer.  Our technicians will always be upfront and honest with you about the cost of repair and if we don’t think that it’s worth the time and money to repair we will do our best to help you decide what new machine will work best for your specific needs in the future.

Geek ABC is here to come to you, we service the entire Washington DC Metro Area in cities such as: Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, Fairfax, McLean, Great Falls, Oakton, Springfield, Vienna, Bethesda, Silver Spring, Germantown, Rockville, Olney, Potomac, Chevy Chase and Washington DC.

Should I take my computer to a computer repair shop or choose an on-site computer repair service?

The benefits of choosing an onsite computer repair service
Onsite computer repair companies offer same day computer repair service, whereas computer repair shops typically take a couple days to repair your PC.
You do not need to disconnect any wiring or devices attached to your PC if you choose on-site computer repair service. Taking your computer to a computer repair shop means that you have to disconnect all of your computer wiring and devices attached to your PC. This can be time consuming and if you are not familiar with how all of your PC devices are connected to your computer it may cost you time and confusion on reconnecting your computer wiring and devices.
Onsite computer repair service is much faster overall than taking your computer to a computer repair shop.
When choosing onsite computer repair you avoid the risk of damaging your computer by dropping it when taking your PC to a computer repair shop.
You get to personally meet the onsite computer repair technician that will be doing that actual work on your PC on-site. You can even watch while the computer repair technician is servicing or fixing your PC.
Onsite computer repair services is obviously one of the best PC repair options if you are unable to leave your home or business for any particular reasons to transport your PC to a computer repair shop.
   

When should you choose to use remote computer repair services?

The benefits of choosing a remote computer repair service
Remote computer repair services cost less because a computer repair technician is not required to be dispatched and drive to your location. Obviously if you have a PC connection problem to the Internet or your PC will not boot up, then remote computer repair is not an option for you.
Remote computer repair is even faster than onsite computer repair since you are not waiting for a PC repair service technician to arrive at your location.
Remote computer repair companies offer same day computer repair service, whereas computer repair shops typically take a couple days to repair your PC.
Remote computer repair does not require disconnecting any wiring or devices attached to your PC if you choose remote computer repair services. Taking your PC to a computer repair shop means that you have to disconnect all of your computer wiring and devices attached to your PC. This can be time consuming and if you are not familiar with how all of your PC devices are connected to your computer it may cost you time and confusion on reconnecting your computer wiring and devices.
When choosing remote computer repair service you avoid the risk of damaging your computer by dropping it when taking your PC to a computer repair shop.
You get to personally meet the remote computer repair technician that will be doing that actual work on your PC remotely. You can even watch while the remote computer repair technician is servicing or fixing your PC remotely.
Remote computer repair service is obviously one of the best PC repair options if you are unable to leave your home or business for any particular reasons to transport your PC to a computer repair shop.
   

Computer Repair Service Company Review

Choosing a well known name brand computer repair company does not guarantee that you are getting the best qualified computer repair service. It is always smart to check computer repair service reviews online or look for any negative information or feedback about a particular PC repair company before choosing to use their services. If a computer repair company has a lot of unhappy customers than it is probably not the best idea to use their PC repair service.
 
Computer repair service reviews in Virginia (VA), Maryland (MD) and Washington, DC.
PC repair company reviews in Virginia (VA), Maryland (MD) and Washington, DC.
Computer repair company reviews in Virginia (VA), Maryland (MD) and Washington, DC.
PC repair services reviews in Virginia (VA), Maryland (MD) and Washington, DC.
 
Finding a reliable and trustworthy computer repair company is comparable to finding a good mechanic. In fact, if you think about it, both PC repair and auto repair are very similar these days because all new vehicles use advanced computer systems. A PC mechanic is not much different than an auto mechanic.
 
Actual computer repair company experience, knowledge and expertise levels should also so be considered when choosing a computer repair service or computer repair company. This ties into the qualifications required for the PC repair service technicians to work for a particular computer repair company, but you should look at the bigger picture as well. Does the particular PC repair company offer very basic computer repair services, such as computer optimization, virus removal and data backup? Do they offer more advanced computer repair services, such as data recovery, networking and Server level repair services? You may not need advanced computer repair services, but if a computer repair company is offering advanced level computer repair then you can feel confident that their A+ computer techs are fully qualified computer repair professionals.
