My PC keeps on hanging in every interval. It shows an error that "your system is running with too little virtual memory".  What troubleshooting can I do and what fix  can I apply to make my PC run without any obstacles?

Hi,

the problem is most probably in Windows, maybe you have too small memory on your system. Maybe you downloaded some programs such Adobe Reader, Firefox, IE 8, Google chrome etc. But these programs need bigger memory in your desktop RAM. Which has to be at least 1GB.

You can change your size of memory if you go to Device Manager. click on Advanced and then Performance Options.

Check how much space you have on your RAM and change it to something like 192MB. That should solve the problem.

For a future, you can prevent memory problems, you can try to use less fewer programs at one time and try to not run the programs which signs of low memory conditions and try to not run them at the same time.

You can also install more RAM, ask about it your manufacturer.

Right-click My Computer and go to Properties.
Go to the advanced tab in the System Properties dialog box
Under Performance pane, click Settings.
Under Performance Options, click advanced tab.
Here you see Virtual memory pane, click Change.
Change the Initial size value and the Maximum size value to a higher value, click Set, and then click OK.
Click OK and close the Performance Options dialog box

That’s true when your system is having a very low virtual memory. The system tends to become extremely slow. If the problem is with the virtual memory, the system should alert you that your virtual memory is low. If this happens, you only need to increase the virtual memory of your computer. To do this, right-click “My Computer” then select “Properties”.

Go to “Advanced” tab then under “Performance”, click “Settings”. In Performance Options screen, go to “Advanced” tab then at the bottom under “Virtual memory”, click “Change”. Now, in the Virtual Memory dialog, just increase the amount of virtual memory your computer is using. To do this, select “Custom size” then in “Initial size” and “Maximum size” fields, enter the same value in MB.

For example, 1000 is equivalent to 1 GB. According to an old rule of thumb, the ideal page file size or virtual memory size should be double your RAM or 1.5x your RAM but you don’t really need to follow this. Check the actual amount of RAM installed on your computer and apply the rule.

For example, if you have 2 GB RAM, your virtual memory should be 4 GB or 3 GB. In both fields, enter without quotes “4000” or “3000” then click “Set” and then “OK”. When you are prompted to restart the computer, click to restart the machine. See if this works.
