What do you do when you receive “Out of Virtual Memory” message?

Sunday, June 7, 2009

Sometimes you face a common message “Out of Virtual Memory”. When virtual memory becomes full, you have to face this message. If you install more programs, you would be facing this problem. To solve this problem, the best solution is to uninstall unnecessary programs from your PC and then follow these steps:

1. Right-click My Computer and then click Properties.
2. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
3. In the Performance pane, click Settings.
4. In the Performance Options dialog box, click the Advanced tab.
5. In the Virtual memory pane, click Change.
6. Change the Initial size value and the Maximum size value to a higher value [800MB or more], click Set, and then click OK.
  • For best performance, do not set the initial size to less than the minimum recommended size under Total paging file size for all drives. The recommended size is equivalent to 1.5 times the amount of RAM on your system. Usually, you should leave the paging file at its recommended size, although you might increase its size if you routinely use programs that require a lot of memory.

7. Click OK to close the Performance Options dialog box, and then click OK to close the System Properties dialog box.
