    Virtual Memory (Win XP Pro+SP2 and Outlook 2003)

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Loungers

    Every time I get my e-mail using MS-Outlook 2003, after a while it pops a message that says something about my machine is low on virtual memory, though it has 1GB of real <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29> memory, and some 21GB worth of disk space. Maybe highly fragmented, but nevertheless it is 25% or so of disk space.

    My question is: I have a 7-in-1 memory card reader with a bunch of old memory cards stuck in it, totaling about 2GB worth of empty virgin space. Could I use these as part of my Virtual memory requirements for MS-Outlook? They are just sitting there doing nothing but extending out of the reader.

    Thanks for any help.

    What are your virtual memory settings? Windows XP appears to be using virtual memory all the time, even if the total amount of memory used is less than the amount of physical memory.

    NO, but when you go to Vista a thumb drive can be used as extra memory.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
