    Out of Virtual Memory!?


    i have sis 630 graphics controller, 300MB of Ram on mother board (128MB installed), yet i recieve the message "out of virtual memory" Is there a way to resolve this? Do i need to go to the system bios and install more?

    virtual memory is hard drive space used for extra memory when needed (swap space)
    did you only set up a very small swap partition ?
    you say you have 300mb but only 128 installed ? don't understand
    either increase your swap size or don't have several apps running at once
