Hi there,

It seems you need help regarding increasing the RAM. I suggest the best method is to buy an additional RAM and then add to your Laptop. 

If you can't pay then follow my steps or methods:- 

1. Download and install a RAM cleaner application. There are 100s of them on the market. I suggest installing the Tune up utilities. Any other RAM cleaner will work.

2. Increase your virtual memory.

Before that let me tell you please post full details regarding your issue. You haven't specified which OS you are using? Assuming that you are on Windows 7.

1. Right click on computer -> Properties -> Advanced properties -> Advanced -> Settings under Performance -> Advanced -> Change under virtual memory -> Select custom and put a bigger size then apply and ok.

2. Now restart the PC.

Right click on computer - Properties Properties - Advanced properties - Advanced - Settings under Performance Settings under Performance - Advanced - Change under virtual memory

I’m sorry but that’s about it. The only option to allow you to run more applications on your laptop is upgrade its physical RAM. If you can do an upgrade on the memory, I would recommend you upgrade it to the maximum amount it supports. To know the maximum capacity of your computer, visit your laptop manufacturer’s website then head down to their support page.

Contact them and ask them about the maximum capacity of your laptop’s memory. Like what I did before, they will provide you a detailed information of your machine’s specifications and the maximum capacity that each component can be upgraded to. Once you have the information, you can go to a computer shop that offers upgrading services and upgrade it to the maximum supported capacity.

If upgrading the memory is not an option right now, an alternative would be to increase the virtual memory of your computer. Though this will not increase the memory of your laptop, it will on the other hand allow you more space to run applications.

To increase the virtual memory, go to Steps for Runtime Error 7 and then follow the steps to increase the amount of virtual memory your operating system uses.
