Hey....I'm new here. I have a problem with my windows XP OS.

Every time I play the game (Space Cowboy) for about 20 minutes, my XP gives me an error message saying that the virtual memory is too low. I know what that means but I can't figure out why it runs the VM down so quickly. I don't know what to do and it's driving me nuts. So....is there anything that I can do?

perhaps increasing your virtual memory may help,,
Start button/right click my computer/properties/advanced/performance settings/advanced.

that will take you to where you can manage your vm size.

It means that your physical memory (RAM) and virtual memory are used up.

Adding additional memory is the key here. Increasing virtual memory will help with the error, but it will not help long term. Virtual memory is actually hard drive space that is reserved for virtual memory. When it's used, your hard drive is being used pretty much 24/7 and will decrease the life span of the drive.

RAM will alleviate the problem.
