How to Solve Low Memory Problems?

I always get a low memory warning message with my laptop lately. When it shows, my laptop gets so slow and I have to wait for few minutes to continue doing my task. I have to close other programs to speed it up. It's time to add a memory card. But for the meantime, here are some tips on how to solve this kind of problem.

Normally this warning message shows when you run many programs same time than the RAM installed on your computer is designed to support. Your can solve this problem by increasing the system paging file size also called as virtual memory. Using this virtual memory windows moving information to and from the paging file for fast processing. This will free up enough RAM for other programs to run properly.

To increase the system page file follow the give path:


Control Panel > System > Advanced > Click on Settings (Under Performance) > Advanced > Change

Here under Drive (Volume label), you have option to select any of your hard disk drive, but the best choice is, select any drive other than C drive for virtual memory.



Set the double Initial & Maximum Size of your Virtual Memory. Here set initial size 700 MB and maximum size up to 1000MB; you can change this size according to the free space available on your hard drive.
