"Windows Virtual Memory too low" #709370

This is a common issue. Let me emplain what is
happening exactly:

Your computer loads your programs into something
called memory (or RAM) when you use them. Sometimes
however, there isn't enough memory to run those
programs, so windows tries to compensate for this by
using something called "virtual memory," which is hard
drive space made to act like memory. This allows you
to run all those programs, though at a speed cost
(which makes me think your computer must be running
rather slow when this happens).

This problem can be fixed easily. First, right click
the "My computer" Icon and click on properties. It
should bring up a box with information about your
computer. Click on the "Advanced" Tab and then click
on the "settings" button under "Performance" which
will bring up another box called "performance
options." Next, click on the "Advanced" tab of this,
and you should see at the bottom a button that reads
"Change." That should bring up one last box with the
title "virtual memory." Now, click on the circle next
to "Custom size" and on where it says "initial size"
type 1024 and on the maximum size type 1536. Then
click on the button "set" (don't forget to do this,
otherwise no changes will be made). Click OK and
restart the computer.


This might seem like a complex procedure, but it's
quite easy. Something I'd actually recommend even more
is to buy more memory for your computer as virtual
memory degrades slightly the computer performance, and
for sure you will not get that same error message. i
hope this helps.

The above can help if your getting the error "Windows Virtual Memory too low"

If your laptop is running slow it can be for many reasons.

Like the original poster said, it is better to buy more ram than to start pushing your virtual memory higher if it is speed you are after, as virtual memory is slower because it is using your hard drive, setting it too high can actually make your computer slower than it already was to start with.
