Equium A60: message error "virtual memory is low.

my daughter has a Toshiba Equium A60 for over a year (now off warranty of course) and had error messages saying that its virtual memory is low. This happens almost every time that she uses his computer now and it cannot open any of its requests at the moment.
any ideas out there?
She cannot renew his subscription of McAfee online because she can't keep usable enough long to do anything. grateful for any advice.

Thank you

the main problem is that it is in a House of the student with 3 others and sounds me for the computer - a mother no-tech tips!

Hello

Unless you are an experienced user, you should allow Windows to manage this setting for you. Your problem may occur if the default settings have been changed somehow. First to diagnose your problem, you must follow these steps to ensure that Windows runs properly your virtual memory settings.

1. find out how virtual memory is managed. Right click on 'My Computer' and choose 'properties '. Click the Advanced tab, and then under Performance click settings.
2. which opens your performance Options. Click the Advanced tab. For private users 'typical' Processor Scheduling & Memory use must be set to "programs".
3. under virtual memory, click change.
4. which opens the virtual memory options. If you have more than one hard drive, make sure that your primary hard drive is selected under "Drive".
5. under "Paging File Size for selected device" check the box indicating the size of the managed system.
6. click OK in all the 3 boxes to close off these settings and restart your computer

Good bye

  • I have a message saying "windows virtual memory is low"

    I'm using windows xp (32) bits and a message keeps coming up saying "Windows virtual memory is low" what can I do about it please can someone tell me? ".

    If you mean that you see a message like this:

    Virtual memory minimum too low: your system is low on virtual memory.  Windows is increasing the size of your virtual memory paging file.

    This means that Windows XP is to let you know that he does his work.  The message is not an error message - this is an informational message.

    If XP thinks that the size of the swap file (usually c:\pagefile.sys) is too small to accommodate your day-to-day transactions, it will adjust the paging file to expand the pagefile and display this message as it does.  It is not necessarily a 'problem', but the message is boring.

    Sometimes, the message indicates someone was tampering with the XP of the paging file settings to try to solve another problem that usually has nothing to do with their paging file and resolve things inefficiently.

    This could mean that the settings have been adjusted for certain values that don't make sense for the configuration of the system.  Unless we know the system better, you can't just pick certain values out of the air and that your system behaves effectively.  You might not see the message again, but this does not mean that the settings are correct.

    This could mean that the settings have never been properly in the first place when you first install of XP and things must be properly configured.

    Sometimes, as your system configuration changes over time and other applications are running and get bigger, you may add additional RAM to your system to accommodate things (or run the number of requests).

    At least that learn you more about managing memory than Windows XP, it is usually best to simply let XP manage the size of your virtual memory paging file.

    To see what your current, make settings right click post work, properties, advanced, performance settings, Advanced tab, virtual memory, and then click the button change.

    Make a note of the current settings in case you need to change their return more later.

    The best setting for the size of swap file is usually going to be:

    System managed size

    Right click my computer, properties, Advanced tab, Performance... Settings, Advanced tab, virtual memory... Change.

    Note the current setting, so you can change things later if you have a problem.

    If it is already done, on the size of swap file:

    System managed size

    Don't forget to click on Set (to be defined), OK (several times) and then restart your computer.

    Windows XP will attempt to affect a swap file approximately 1.5 times the total amount of RAM installed on your system.  To manage the size of paging file Windows XP is enough for most configurations.

    If your system is not set to the size of the managed system, you must determine how it changed and why (usually a bad reason), make a note of the current settings to change them back later if necessary, and then change the setting to the size of the managed system, click on the Set button and then click on apply to apply the changes (you will be asked to restart).

    "Because someone told me to" is not a good reason to start making adjustments to the size of pagefile.  Setting just above to enlarge it by an arbitrary value can ease the symptoms of the problem and stop message, but may not result in the best configuration for your system.

    All the advice to 'Increase the value of the initial and maximum size to a higher value' are misinformed ideas that come from not knowing how to work XP - How do you increase it and what happens if you increase too?

    If you want your system to operate as efficiently as possible, you must understand what is happening and fix it properly and not only begin to try things or make some arbitrary adjustments.

    The size of the pagefile can really need adjustment, but you should at least try to know what you're doing and why you need to do.  It is unlikely that anyone can tell you how to adjust your settings properly without more information.

    If you don't know what are the best settings, or if you are not sure what should be your settings and need help looking at your stuff, follow these steps:

    Since the implementation of the Microsoft Answers forum does not ask for any kind of information system when a new question is asked, we know absolutely nothing about your system.  Not knowing the basic information a problem prolongs the frustration and the agony of these issues.

    Thank you MS Answers, allowing the resolution of simple problems as frustrating and a lot of time as possible.

    Provide information on your system, the better you can:

    What is your system brand and model?

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    Click Start, run and enter in the box:

    Msinfo32

    Click OK, and when the system info summary appears, click on edit, select all (Ctrl-A), copy (Ctrl-C) and paste (Ctrl-V) the information back here in your next reply.

    There will be some personal information (such as the user name and the name of the system), and what appears to be personal information for you, simply delete the personal information of the pasted information.

    This minimize back Q & A and eliminate the guesswork and assumptions.

  • I get an error message that my memory is low, but when I go to delete files from my recovery disc it will not allow me too.

    Original title: recovery Partition

    Stays of complete recovery partition may not free up any space. I get an error message that my memory is low, but when I go to delete files from my recovery disc it will not allow me too. There are 6 total folders on my drive:

    Dell, Program files users tools and windows sources.

    The Windows folder and the program are the most important concerts of 6-7 piece. But when I try to delete them or move only to the recycling it is bin-error right and says Destination folder access denied and I need permission for this action... Any idea would be deeply appreciated. Thank you

    I apolgize if I look tense. That's the way I read your phrase... > if I try yo run an app download anything I get this error...

    I suggest that you contact the manufacturer of your computer. Ask to speak to a technician and explain to that person of the situation.

    I'm afraid that I have no idea why your recovery partition gives you message "not enough memory" If you have never touched him.

    Maybe you'd wait for people with better computer skills to help you.

  • I get a message that the memory is low and needs to close... I have a lot of ram

    Whenever I log in I can use the computer for a little while, and then I get the message that my memory is low... I have a lot of RAM so I don't know what to do next. Do you have helpful advice?

    You can also get this error message if you have disabled the pagefile (virtual memory), depending on what software you are running may at that time.
    Although not always necessary there are still many programs and games that use the pagefile.
    To set up a swap file:
    Go to control panel > system > advanced system settings > performance >
    Advanced > virtual memory and check the size of the managed system, and then click Set.

    If you want to save space on a SSD, you can also set a
    Custom size with the min and max to 1024MB (2048MB) which should be more than enough for most applications that use a PF.
    You can also set Page files on the other HARD drive if you have more than one.
    A PF is also required for mini dumps (error reporting).
