Devote 512MB of virtual memory on your disk. No more, or it will never work (I found that the hard way). More real RAM is always a good thing as long as you stay below 512MB. Now that I read this again, are you talking about RAM or disk? To get more disk, you simply add another. Get one and we'll guide you through setting it up.
I want to get more RAM so i can run a program
I have my computer set so that it manges the amount, but its only around 30.
I did change the virtual memory to 100 for both drives and i made sure i had enough memory.
But it did not work, the amount of RAM stayed the same, as if the computer was manging it.
It appears you're talking about RAM and virtual memory. To install software, it don't take RAM (other than to run the install program), but it DOES take disk space to hold the files. If that's a bit tight, it'll never fit. The only way to make it work is to then whack your junk that you don't use any longer.
Its aol 8.0 and it haves this program that gets all the system information and sees if it meets the requirements. Its only the RAM or virtual memory (which ever it is) that does not meet the requirements.
Do you know how much memory you have already? You can check that under device manager. To add more ram you usually have to install a physical chip into the computer. Depending on your motherboard will depend on the memory that would fit in there.
Here's another idea. Go WWW.NETZERO.COM and try that ISP. I hear of a lot of problems with AO-Hell. Fortunately, NetZero's always been fairly trouble free. (don't mind if I advertise, do you? I'm not getting paid for this. ). Also, for the complete package, you may want Netscape, especially since I hate using IE.
