Unsure of the problem, but my fiancee came home yesterday and told me his boss that lives by us is having problems with her computer. Says she is getting some kind of pop up about virtual memory and her local area connection for the internet is not showing up, and I do not think she can even get an internet connection. I thought Ctrl Alt Delete and the processes tab would show what is running the virtual memory, but I am not too smart, so am not sure. I also know how to check the local area connection and fix settings if needed if I know the settings for the connection. Just asking in case there is any info I may need, or possible reasons as to why the problem is. I have been helpful with her computer problems before, but I am not a pro. Most of my info comes from here or other online sources. I have not yet looked at her computer.

Thanks for any info.

Virtual memory - Three questions:
  • How much RAM is installed?

    While holding down the [WinKey], (the key with the Windows logo on it), press the [Pause/Break] key. (If you don't have a [WinKey] or [Pause/Break] key, click Start, right-click My Computer and select "Properties"). Click the "General" tab (if not already selected). Down near the bottom right corner it should list the amount of RAM. (For example "512 MB" or "3.12" GB).

  • How large is the current Virtual Memory setting?

    While holding down the WinKey, press the [Pause/Break] key. (If you don't have a [WinKey] or [Pause/Break] key, click Start, right-click My Computer and select "Properties"). Click the "Advanced" tab. In the "Performance" section, click the "Settings" button. Click the "Advanced" tab. Under the "Virtual memory" section it should list the current setting to the right of "Total paging file size for all drives:".

  • How much free space is there on the C: drive?

    While holding down the WinKey, press the [E] key. (If you don't have a [WinKey], click Start, click My Computer), then right-click the "C:" drive and select "Properties". Click the "General" tab (if not already selected). What is the number of bytes to the right of "Free space:"?
