Windows – Virtual Memory is Low

April 28, 2007

I am sure you will hate this just like myself when i am doing my things half way through i got this message and there goes my documents which i have doing half way through….sometimes i were even shown a blue screen of death for that event….

Then a further research and realised that either one has to be sacrifice , either the money or the HDD space…

The problem is that you do not have enough RAM (random access memory) installed. Windows first draws from your RAM, but when this runs out, it will then access your virtual memory. When even this runs low, you will start to receive the low virtual memory message. One solution is to allow Windows to increase your virtual memory, but the correct method is to install more RAM to your system.

oh yeah , before that, remember the maximum you can place for the max field is 3 x of your physical RAM while the minimum should be 1.5 x of the current physical RAM

Microsoft Windows XP
1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
3. On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
4. On the Advanced tab, under Virtual memory, click Change.
5. Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file that you want to change.
6. Under Paging file size for selected drive, click to select the System managed size check box, and then click Set.
7. Click OK three times.

When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Yes.

Microsoft Windows 2000
1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
2. Double-click System.
3. On the Advanced tab, click Performance Options.
4. Click Change.
5. Select the drive that you want to use to store the paging file.
6. Increase the value for Maximum size (MB).

For the initial size, we recommend that you use the Recommended value under Total paging file size for all drives.
7. Click Set, and then click OK three times.
8. If you are prompted to restart the computer, click Yes.

Otherwise click Start, and then click Shut Down.
