Quick question for pc wizard's
I'm using an old Gateway tower, which is really old. I purchased it new. I've replaced the hard drive 3times and the power switch once.

I keep getting warned that my virtual memory is low and windows proceeds to increase it. I have to reboot several times a day because of this.

How do I go about increasing memory on this? Is this something I can do? What I'm asking is......how difficult is this to do?

No money here to purchase another pc as I can do almost everything on this one that I want. I've certainly gotten my money's worth already.

Sure do appreciate anyone who replies.

Virtual memory settings

Right click My Computer

Click Advanced
At bottom click Change (Virtual Memory)
Increase the paging file size.
You can change it to D: drive if you have it
