question about virtual memory


Deb and the girls
 

I get this message that I am low on virtual memory all the time.
What is that? Why am I low on it? How can I prevent that?

Either add more RAM (up to 4 Gb in most cases) or increase the size of your
virtual memory.

Are you using XP or Windows 7? That answer will dictate the steps necessary.
I recommend you post this question to a blind computer users list for a
comprehensive answer.

Deb and the girls
 

I am using windows xp.

Okay, Right click on your My Computer desktop Icon. Ctrl+tab until you get
to the advanced page. First button "settings" (there are three, and all
three say settings).

Here there will be a way to adjust the size of your virtual memory (swap
disk on your hard drive).

Again if you don't have 4 Gb RAM installed, you should look into purchasing
and installing to get the most you can. You didn't say, but if you're using
a 64-bit version of XP you could go even higher.

It may be more relevant than you think; I've gotten it once or twice at
the office since last week's upgrade, and that's unusual
