Virtual Memory is Low Recently, I received an email from a friend who had a warning appear on his taskbar that said his virtual memory is too low and Windows will increase it and asked for some help. Also, many web sites that he visits, the images will not completely load.
The problem is that he does not have enough RAM (Random Access Memory) installed.
This is what happens:- 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.
If you have 512MB of RAM already then another 512 would be more than sufficient, or adding 256MB will do
