- Tips to fix this issue
When RAM memory and virtual memory are getting full, a low virtual memory situation exists. A clear symptom of this issue is that you will see that your computer is running application programs slower than it did when you turned it on a few hours before. Webpages load slower the longer you have your system on and this is also a symptom of low virtual memory.
Low memory issue in Windows 7 occurs when your system runs out of RAM and gets low on virtual memory. This can also happen when you run more programs than the RAM on the system can support. Low memory problems can also occur when a program does not free up memory that is no longer needed.
When you face such an issue, first you need to wait a few seconds then restart the system. To fix this issue permanently, you need to install more RAM in your system. A virtual memory feature uses hard drive space so try check that you have lots of free hard drive space by clicking on 'My Computer' and right clicking on C:drive. A drop-down menu will appear from which you need to click 'Properties'. It will show the memory status with the help of a pie chart.
