So 256MB of RAM is not very much. :sad: The last comp I had only had 32MB and I never got the low on virtual memory message.
And, when I bought this one the guy said that 256MB would be pleny for just doing emails and surfing.
Btw, I no longer get that message with this comp anymore so was it okay to change the size of the virtual memory like I did? ....
After googling and reading several diff websites I changed the size of the virtual memory by going into the control panel. The initial minimum size was 384MB which I left as is and the maximum size was 768MB which I changed to 1152MB. I read that you can increase it to 1 1/2 times the size but would like your opinions as I don't want to end up screwing something up.
