2 PC issues

Just curious if anyone can help me.

My Pc keeps saying it's low on virtual memory. Yet, when I try to use programs to speed it up. The stupid PC says it's a vialation 00000000128whatever it is of writeup adress 000000007575whatever it is and freezes the program. I'm not able to play my one and only Game on the computer too. It shuts that down too.

The sound stopped working. It stopped working before, and I fixed it using the control panel. Now, nothing works with any speakers. The PC doesn't even acknowledge that speakers are connected.

It's an old Pentium 4 windows XP made in 03'/04'.

Any FREE ideas?

Wait...you're using programs to speed up a computer that's low on virtual memory? Shut all other programs down except the one you're using.

Viruses and other malware are famous for eating virtual memory, so run a thorough scan as well. Also defragment your hard drive and run a disc cleanup.

How much RAM do you have?

Press CTRL+ALT+Delete and go to processes and shut down some unnecessary processes. And don't use anything to speed it up unless you know how much your processor can handle.

As for the speakers, I am guessing your default audio device got switched. Turn on some music and right click the sound icon on the taskbar and click 'properties'. Set it to the speaker that is showing as active (bars moving up and down).

yeah. I've done 10 defragments recently and no dice :-\
I was speeding it up bscause it slows down a lot, but it won't let me speed it up.

I know of the CTRL, ALT, DLT thing. I use it to shutdown programs that the PC freezes.

But don't close programs, shut down processes.

it warns me that shutting them down can mess them up. Plus I don't know what half the stuff is. I don't want to risk shutting down important programs... How about safe mode?

Well it depends on what you shut down... Obviously your computer is running too many processes at once, or it has a virus. Safe mode would load with minimal processes, so that might work.

You definitively have something fishy going on in your PC. It can be a virus that is in your PC or it can be that your computer is getting too old and is starting to shut down on you. (That's just the nature of computers) I'd recommend doing a security scan on your PC to check for any potential malware or viruses. If you don't have an anti-virus get AVG free. If there isn't any viruses or bad stuff found then I think your computer is plainly breaking down.

I have 57 processes running on a comparable processor with 1.5 GB RAM. You may just have a virus, or you're running 20 beastly processes.
