I was playing poker the other day and a message box came up saying my computer is low on vitual memory. I don't know what that means other than that my computer has been running slow. Any help you can give me will be appreciated.

Please, post some computer info:
- processor type, amount of RAM (hold Windows logo key, hit Pause/Break key)
- hard drive size/free space (open "My Computer", right click on hard drive letter, click "Properties")


# Click Start, click Run, type sysdm.cpl in the Open box, and then press ENTER.
# Click the Advanced tab, and then under Performance click Settings.
# Click the Advanced tab, and then under Virtual memory click Change.
What are the numbers for virtual memory listed there? Is it managed by Windows?

Well, surely you have very little RAM installed (256MB).
XP will run much better with at least 512MB (1GB preferable).

I have 57.0 GB of free space

...out of?

You didn't say anything about virtual memory settings.
