Default Lack of Virtual Memory

My laptop specs:

Dell Latitude C400
Mobile Intel Pentium 3 CPU - M 1200MHz
1.20 GHz
256 MB of Ram
20 GB Hard Drive

I keep getting a "not enough virtual memory" error and I was wondering what I could do to stop the error from happening. Any virtual memory hacks or something?

Telling him to go into the Control Panel isn't of much help is it...

Go to the control panel, and then go to System.
Go to the Advanced tab, and here, select the Settings button under Performance.

Now, go to the Advanced tab on this also, and set to Change the Virtual Memory amount.

You can either select Custom, and select an amount (not too much mind you), or make it set to a System set size (though I guess this would already be ticked).

Cool. Made the changes and I guess I'll see how it goes the next time I'm at the library. Yeah its an old school laptop but I got it on eBay for $80.00. I have desktop computer but flight sim on that one. Laptop does what its supposed to do, get me on the internet wherever I'm at that has available access.
