Increase Virtual Memory on Your Computer

Sometimes when using your computer you might get some errors saying that virtual memory on your computer is low. This normally happens when you have many applications open on your system and your computer has run out of virtual memory space. What’s virtual memory anyways – you might be wondering? Virtual memory is a computer system technique which gives an application program the impression that it has contiguous working memory (an address space) while in fact it may be physically fragmented and may even overflow on to disk storage. Systems that use this technique make programming of large applications easier and use real physical memory more efficiently than those without virtual memory. Cool, now that you know what virtual memory is all about, how can you increase it on your computer, so you don’t get those dreaded errors, and hopefully your computer runs a little faster? Here is how you do it:

On your desktop, go to MY COMPUTER right click it and go to PROPERTIES

Select the ADVANCED tab, and under the PERFORMANCE option click on the SETTINGS

on the performance option window click on the ADVANCED tab again

On the VIRTUAL MEMORY option click “CHANGE

Select the system drive, normally C: and make sure Custom Size option is checked. Increase the initial size (MB) numbers to double of what you have. If you have 1024 increase it to 2048 and then increase the maximum size (MB) to double of the initial size number. Click on OK and restart your computer.

That’s it; hopefully, you won’t get those virtual memory errors anymore.
