I am running Windows XP Home. While using my computer I get a pop up message
WINDOWS VIRTUAL MEMORY MINIMUM TOO LOW. How do I change this setting to get more
virtual memory. Or do I even need to change this setting? And are there
any other setting that need to be changed if I change this setting?

Thanks for any help you can give.

how much RAM do you have installed?

if you go to
control panel
system
click on the advanced tab
click on performance settings
click on advanced tab
down the bottom it should tell you how much virtual memeory you have running

it should say
total paging file size for all drives : XXXXXMB

In all reality, you don't need to worry about that message, unless your hard dirve it getting rather full. If you don't want to see it agian, then post the info that ttoppo asked for, and either troppo or I can help you. That message is just telling you that all your ram is being used by open programs, and the current amount of virtual memory is insufficient, so it's making it bigger.

When I start my laptop it is telling me that there is no virtual memory and then shuts down and tries to retart from set up. Is this similar to your problem or worse? Can i just reboot?
