hi - i'm having some problems with my virtual memory and i can't get a solid answer from elsewhere. i have installed a 128gb SSD into my 2gb RAM notebook. Since then i have a error message regarding the virtual memory.

I've gotten down to that i have to clear 'automatically manage page files' and input an initial and maximum, but i have no idea what to put, can anyone give me some guidance please? I've seen all the 1.5 times but from i've read that's nonsense.

Minimum of 1GB and maximum of 2 or 3GB should work fine unless you need a lot more memory than is currently installed.

rule of thumb, there are exceptions to this, not more than double what you have for ram installed. Go with 3 GB it should be enough.

Min 2048 mb(2gb ) to max 4096 mb(4gb) . Its a notebook so u r not need more than 4gb virtual memory .
Virtual memory means use hdd or ssd space as ram (limited size) (pagefile) because $per gb is lower (4gb 2400mhz ram 50$ but 4gb ssd (size) is only 4$ and hdd and ssds are faster than ram) so we use hdd or ssd space as ram .
