Does anyone know anything about virtual memory? I know very little. What's this about changing performance settings? What do you change them to? Help!

Are you getting messages about your memory being too low?

Virtual Memory:

Click on the start button / then Control Panel / then on System/ then on Advanced
Then Performance Options
Make sure the dot is filled in for Applications
Then click change Virtual Memory

The minimum should be 1.5 times your RAM size. The maximum should be three times your RAM. If problems still continue - raise the maximum. Keep raising it until you no longer get the messages.

The best solution would be to increase the amount of RAM in your system since the hard drive where virtual memory resides is much slower than RAM.

best way to do it is do as Enthusiast says but make it the same size min and max. If you got alot of disk space make it a gig so 1000 min 1000 max
