If we have window xp installed . and our ram is only 256 mb and it i had increased the virtual memory till 900mb ????
does it helps increasing the system speed
its quiet tricky to be with most optomised system. but even will the speed will be affected by increasing the system virtual memory
my pc is celeron pc with 1.2 gb processor speed and ram is 256 mb
when the photoshop runs over it sometime all the things just go hand even keyboard lights get still . task manager didn't works
i had increased my virtual memory ..
can it work..
but still i am getting the same prob. but sometimes.
currently my virtual memory is 512-900mb
?? what u think is there any other problem too ???
You should increase your physical memory and let Windows manage the the page file.
Phisical memory is the firs thing that counts for speed. No matter how much you increase, with 256MB ram, it won't make much of a difference.
512 mb physical memory at least, 1 gb is best for programmer.
virtual memory is slower, and damaging to your harddisk, and losing datawhen power off suddenly.
Virtual memory is stored on your hard drive!
Now, which is faster, your RAM, or your hard drive?
Using virtual memory will slow down your computer severely, not the opposite.
Virtual memory is really just the last resort to keep your computer from crashing due to insufficient memory.
You should leave the virtual memory controls alone, and either shut down some background applications or get more RAM.
