Well, this problem occurs if you are running more than the programs your RAM and virtual memory is designed to or when a program doesn’t free the space when it’s no longer in use.

So first try to run less number of programs at a time.

If you receive that message on your computer while doing something, try increasing the virtual memory. It should alleviate the problem. To increase the size of your virtual memory, right-click “My Computer” then select “Properties.” Next, select “Advanced” tab then click “Settings” under “Performance” section. Next, select “Advanced” tab then click “Change” under “Virtual memory” section at the bottom.

Access virtual memory

After this, select “Custom size” then enter the “Initial size” and “Maximum size” values without the comma. The value is in megabytes or MB. Entering 1000 is equivalent to 1000 MB or 1 GB. Entering the same value in both fields will make the page file in a fixed size and lessens defragmentation in your system drive.

The ideal size according to the old rule is 1.5x or 2x the size of your physical RAM. So, if you have like 2 GB RAM, you can have like without quotes “3000” or “4000”. But you don’t need to follow this. You can adjust this according to your system’s needs. Next, select drive “C” on the list then click “Set” when you are done.

Set virtual memory size

Click “OK” then restart the computer when you are prompted. If you still receive “system out of memory,” increase the size further. If you want a total fix, upgrade the memory of your computer by adding more RAM. For more info about the page file or virtual memory, visit Ideal Page File Size.
