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.
