I keep getting this message on my computer that your virtual memory is low, does that mean that my hard disk is full or that the RAM is corrupted? How can I increase the virtual memory?

Well it could be because there might be some virus making your process shot up or it could be you had open a programe or too many programme that your computer can't handle if that the case you might wanna add more ram to your computer yea .

so you are playing games and you received that error, i think you need to change your video card because that error is based on the performance of your video card.. another thing is that your game or program ur using is so high thats why your video card cannot reach its requirements, in shot buy a new video card.. :)

hi...virtual memory that the OS uses the hard disk space as virtual RAM..... increase it by goin to system properties and so you wont have any problems...

Well, i think this error only comes whenever your computer memory is used by some other processes,, and to avoid this you just have to increase your virtual memory, or buy some RAM,,, i don't think there's a problem in corruption of RAM and HARd disk...
