Upgrade memory for Compaq Presario R3000 PC Notebook

\015 I would like more memory in my notebook. Right now is have 256 & I upgraded with another 512 some time ago. So, I have 768. I'm getting a "virtural memory is low" message lately.\015\012\015\012So, I understand I can only upgrade this one to a total of 2048 memory.\015\012\015\012What do I do? Put in another 512 of memory? Would that be enough to make my computer work better?\015\012\015\012Thanks.\015\012Bonnie\015

Answers :

Virtual memory, is where there isn't enough physical memory, (Also referred to as System Memory), and part of your harddrive's space is used.

Rule of Thumb is virtual memory will be approximately 1-1/2 times the size (Amount) of your physical memory. (You have a 256MB stick and a 512MB stick of physical memory)

I do suggest you upgrade to 1024MB of ram memory, (Physical memory) 1024MB = 1GB.
If your budget allows it, 2GB of ram memory would definitely be the way to go. You won't see much of an increase in just using the 'net, but you sure will when using applications or programs!
What OS are you running? 768 should be enough to run XP and keep you from getting that error message. On laptops their are normally just 2 slots for ram, so you would need to replace the 256 with the 512, which would bring you up to a gig of ram. Do you know if your computer has any spyware/adware on it? Sometimes malware can take up all your memory and generate just such an error. Do you know how many processes are running when you first login? Thank you.
