Hello, message appeared on my desktop about 20 mins ago, that my virtual memory is low. I know how to configure it..from reading online, BUT, when i go to the intial and mazimum settings...both boxes are Blank, and i do not know how much to increase my virtual memory to. I have a Pentium 4 desktop running windows XP, SP3, and i have 2Gb of RAM memory..so i just need figures for the minimum and maximum boxes.....i think its meant to be in megabytes. so i just need approximate figures please, thanks
Pagefile (Virtual Memory) -- Rght click MY Computer - select propeties - Advanced tab - Performance - advanced tab - Virtual memory click change, you can put the page file on a differnt drive (if you have one), click custom size and set Initial size to one and a half times the amount of memory you have fitted i.e. 512MB memory = set to 768MB, set maximum to double your memory amount i.e. 512MB memory = 1024MB click ok. If your hard drive is full and there is not enough room for the pagefile this can slow down, freeze or even cause the PC to crash (restart).
