Speed u your System by increasing your virtual ram :)

Hi friend. Today I am going to tell you about how you can speed up your computer. We all know, the more RAM we have, the more fast is our computer..., so here is how you can speed up your system... :)

  • Hold the 'Windows' Key and with it, press the 'Pause/Break' key 
                                             OR 
       Open 'My Computer' and then Select its 'Properties'.
  •  Select the 'Advanced' tab.

  •  Go to 'Performance' and click on 'Settings'.

  •  Now select the 'Advanced' tab on the button that pops up.




  •  Under the 'Virtual Memory' click on 'Change'.
  •  Select the 'Custom Size' button.
  •   For initial size which depends on your hard drive space, type in anywhere from 1000-1500, and for the Maximum size type in anywhere from 2000-2500. You can also change the parameters depending on your system's configuration and the amount of memory available...
  •   The click 'Set', and  exit.

  •  Now just Restart your computer.

Congrats! Now you have a faster computer with 1-2 GB of Virtual RAM..!

  5. Mac OSX handles this automatically in a rather efficient way. It isn't working too smoothly for me, though, because I lack the raw RAM.

  8. Increasing virtual memory beyond 1 to 1.5x system memory wont do anything but waste disk space. The only useful tip would be to move your virtual memory file to a different physical (and fast) drive than the system files.

  9. Virtual Ram is slow as hell anyway, but it could help if you have a really old computer or laptop or something.

  13. I've never noticed a difference in speed so I don't do this personally. I'm sure it's different for other people though. If you have a very low amount of RAM initially.

  14. this is for people who don't have enough RAM of their own, because while you may have a larger processing power, the speed of a HDD will normally be much slower than that of your RAM...

    look at it like this: if you have a huge basin of water (HDD memory) but only got a little pipe to let it pass through (slower speed) You won't get very much water...

  16. Did not know about this, and is a cool trick to get your computer faster for free. My only concern is if it's safe to do this, like it won't screw over an already slow computer?
