Increasing Computer Performance by Modifying Virtual Memory Settings in Windows | HP Computers | HP


Virtual memory allows Windows to compensate
for low physical memory, or RAM, by temporarily moving data from the
RAM to the hard drive. Increasing the amount of virtual memory
can increase system performance and resolve Low Virtual
Memory errors. On your Windows computer, click the
Windows button. Type advanced system settings, and then click
View advanced system settings from the results. Under Performance, click the Settings button. Click the Advanced tab, and then click the
Change button under Virtual memory. Uncheck Automatically manage paging file size
for all drives and select System managed size if it is not
already selected. Alternatively, you can select Custom size
and manually manage the paging file size. Click OK. Click OK again to restart your computer. Windows boots using the updated amount of
virtual memory.

  2. I have a HP Slimline Desktop – 270-p033in PC with 4GB DDR4 RAM preinstalled in it and the Device is in warranty. Now I want to increase it to 8GB. Should I buy another 4GB of RAM Stick and install in the empty slot? Will it enhance the performance of the PC? And will it void the brand warranty? Please help.
