I have a Toshiba Laptop.
While trying to save a movie I had made with Windows Movie Maker I kept getting different popups basically saying my virtual memory was too low.
This I don't understand :confused: the movie is only about 20 minutes long and is only going to take up about 47mb.
I have very few programs running at start up, and I close Zone Alarm and AVG before I start.
When I go into msconfig, or press control> alternate> delete there seems to be lots of Processes running.
Could these be what are causing my problems?

System Manufacturer TOSHIBA
System Model Satellite A100
OS Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Version 5.1.2600
Service Pack 2
Build 2600

If I right click on "My Computer" I get the following info:

File System: NTFS
Free Space: 25.8 GB
Total Size 37.2 GB

If I go start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system information I get the following:
Total Physical Memory 256.00 MB
Available Physical Memory 14.43 MB
Total Virtual Memory 2.00 GB
Available Virtual Memory 1.96 GB
Page File Space 465.34 MB

Hi schusterjo :)
I had a look and there is 36 running processes :eek:
I have trimmed down the programs at startup already.
http://www.sysinfo.org/startuplist.php?type=&filter=&count=100&offset=0
All I have running are the following:
SynTPLpr
AGRSMMSG
DLACTRLW
avgcc
Logi_MwX
zlclient
ctfmon

BUT all the SYSTEM.INI, WIN.INI and BOOT.INI are still checked.
I don't know where to find out which of those I can safely disable :confused:

I followed the directions from the link in your last post.
1.

Open System by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.
2.

In the left pane, click Advanced system settings. Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
3.

On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.
4.

Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory, click Change.
5.

Clear the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box.
6.

Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.
7.

Click Custom size, type a new size in megabytes in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, click Set, and then click OK.
But got confused as to what figures to put in.
I have attatched another picture of where I am up to

Edited to add that I'm up to No. 5
as it's not obvious in the pic

I have set it to what you suggested and now it will be a waiting game, I guess, to see if I still have any problems.

Thanks again :)

A HUGE Thank You to you schusterjo :up: :D
I am sorry for taking so long to reply but I wanted to try making the movie in WMM before I got too excited :eek:

There was no problems like before, I even still had ZA and AVG running, I was able to save the whole thing in 1 go :up:

I am marking this thread solved now. ;)

I do just have one small question for you though.
Any idea why my image didn't show?
I came back to look at the thread and at one point the image was in the "quote" in you reply, but not even in my post :confused:
I had uploaded the image to a photo album I have online, I had right clicked on it and copied the image location and after clicking on "insert image" and pasted the address there.
That's right isn't it?
