Your computer is low on memory

Hello,
my computer is running too slowly, so I tried several tricks to make it run faster.
the best trick that worked for me is to set 1023 in the virtual memory,take a look at the picture.
after that the laptop runs faster than that, but I get the error message: 'Your computer is low on memory'

Hello NourinE,

What is the model number of your PC?

You system specs show you only have 1GB of memory installed. You should have 4GB installed if you want your PC to perform better.

I wouldn't play around with Windows setting unless you really know what your doing.

Setting the pagefile limits to a fixed value is normally not recommended and in this case it is a very bad idea. A fixed pagefile of 1123 MB is too small on a system with only 1 GB RAM. That will impose a hard limit of about 2 GB on the commit limit and that is likely the problem. I find it highly unlikely that this would significantly improve performance. I would set the pagefile configuration back to default.

There is a huge amount of misinformation on the Internet concerning the pagefile.
