How to speed up your computer – Virtual Memory

YouTube channel: www.youtube.com Facebook: www.facebook.com Twitter: www.twitter.com Google Buzz: www.google.com Digg: digg.com For my video on ‘General Windows Shortcuts’: www.youtube.com This video will show you how to change the Virtual Memory/Page File in Windows 7 to speed up your computer. You can change the page file in windows XP and Vista in a very similar way that is shown in this video. Both turning off page filing completely or setting a custom size page file where the initial size and maximum size is the same should increase your computer’s performance. Note that I only press the button ‘Restart later’ for the purpose of the video. You will need to restart your computer for the changes to take effect. Conversion help: Note that in the video I say to multiply/divide by 1000 for simplicity as the custom size of the page file has not got to be exact. These values are for exact conversion: 1024 KB (Kilobytes) = 1 MB (Megabytes) 1024 MB (Megabytes) = 1 GB (Gigabytes) A helpful conversion website: www.csgnetwork.com Ifyou have a question about this video, after reading all of this description, please send me a direct message on YouTube and I will try and get back to you. If you would like to request a computer related tutorial for me to make and upload, please leave a comment on my channel and I will see what I can do. In the unlikely event that anything goes wrong with your computer when following the steps in my video, then it is in no way my fault and I am not

    I have a Windows 7 Starter Acer Laptop with 1 GB RAM, and I noticed in your video, you only have about 20~40 processes running when your computer is not running anything but your Computer properties and Camtasia-

    I know this sounds funny, but, is it normal that when your computer has absolutely nothing open (just the background desktop alone), is it normal to have about ~80 processes running? I find that a little odd.
    Thanks. 🙂

  8. Musicarta says:

    Sorry, I’m not following. Why have you given me two numbers? I thought the video made it clear enough that the number in both boxes should be the same.

    If you give me more information, I may be able to help you.
    4. You are the first person to report a problem on any of my 46 uploaded videos.

  16. Musicarta says:

    1. Anything that you follow in this video can not directly stop a PC from booting up. It is a complete coincidence that something else has cause this problem at a similar time to you following the steps in this video.
    2. It wouldn’t have hurt to be a little more polite in your comment, would it?
    3. Continued in next comment…

    Hey dick Head I tried ur way but now I can’t boot my pc up

  18. Musicarta says:

    Anywhere between 2000 and 4000 (depending on how much you need for your programs. Don’t know? Just put 4000 in both boxes.

  19. Eagle49329 says:

    Hi friend ! I have a 2 gb ram and what number should i put to the boxes?

    RegInOut is a System Utilities program that includes several which allows the PC users to speedup their computer performance. It improves system performance by removing junk files and fixing registry errors. Its additional feature of Internet Optimizer enhance users web browsing experience.

  21. Musicarta says:

    Well, you can try putting an even higher number in both boxes if you want (no harm can be done, only hard disk space is taken up) but I think its the program itself that has got an error of some sort, or another piece of hardware in your computer is not meeting the program’s requirements.

  22. wisehiker says:

    Well. I am using Movie Maker 6.0 that I have added many Transition and effect addons to making the size of the program running 146,332k
    So the program is large I put the recommended Paging file number in at 12154MB
    Did not work. I used the 6335 and that did not work. I have looked at other of these YouTube videos and they all have a different formula to find the number. So I need to put a large number in but what I don’t know.

  23. Musicarta says:

    Well if you have 8 GB of RAM you shouldn’t have to have page filing enabled at all to be honest unless you are running massively powerful programs. You applied the formula correctly. What is the program that you are trying to run? I have a feeling that it is not your available RAM which is causing your program to stop responding.

  24. wisehiker says:

    I am having problems choosing a number to put into the 2 boxes. I have Windows 7- 8Gig. Ram – Paging file recommended 12154MB Currently allocated: 8103 MG. Performance available in Task Mgr is 6263. I added up the Memory usage in the processes inuse (If that is what I am to do) they come to 163,976 k. It comes to 6335. If I use your formula. Is that correct? I tried it but The program I need to run still stops responding…….? Any Help?
