Advice 1: How to allocate RAM for Java

Windows operating system is installed to dispose of the computer memory to run the various processes. But it often happens that some programs aren't getting enough resources – especially for some games in Java. For example, the game Minecraft is very demanding on the computer hardware. To allocate additional memory will need to make some adjustments.
How to allocate RAM for Java
To allocate more memory for a Java application you can edit some of the options installed on your computer Java machine. Go to menu "start" - "control Panel" - "Programs". In the list of partitions, select Java.
In the opened settings window, select the line Java – View. In the parameter string Runtime.Parameters specify the value -Xincgc -Xmx768M. If you have a 64-bit operating system, type the amount of memory you want to dedicate to the app, in its sole discretion. For example, in the setting bar write -Xincgc -Xmx2048M. So you give the Java virtual machine is 2048 MB of RAM to use.
After specifying the desired data, click OK and restart the computer to apply changed settings. After reboot you can launch the desired application.
There is also the possibility to enter the parameters of the memory allocation for Java machine by using environment variables of your computer. Click "control Panel" from the "start menu". Then click on "system settings" - "System". In the appeared section select "Advanced" - "environment Variables". Click on the "Create"button.
Under "Name" enter _JAVA_OPTIONS. Then set need to change settings – write configuration-Xincgc -Xmx3G. It should be noted that in this case 3G means allocating memory in the amount of 3 Gigabytes.
One of the most demanding games on Java was Minecraft. In the settings of her profile you can manually specify the amount of RAM you want to allocate. Click on the Edit Profile tab ("Edit") in the launcher of the game and the relevant paragraph write the number of RAM. After that save the changes. Now you can begin to start the game.
Useful advice
To determine the bitness of the operating system, click on "start" and click on the entry for "Computer" the right mouse button. In the displayed list of options select "Properties". In the description window of the computer properties you will see an indication of the bitness of your Windows.

Advice 2: How to allocate more memory

To your computer worked quickly and without interruption, it is necessary that there was a sufficient amount of operational memory. At any time you can increase with the help of special tools and planks of RAM.
How to allocate more memory
You will need
  • computer;
  • - operating system;
  • - additional strips of RAM.
Those who daily work at the computer are often faced with the fact that their working tool often freezes for a while and then just shut off. But sometimes, sitting at the computer screen, I want not only to work but also to play with favorite toys. This problem occurs because of a lack of operational memory on the computer .
Often it manifests itself in those moments when the computer boots up. Together with the right programs are started is not important, which occupy part of the memory. The system starts literally torn between them, deciding to whom to give priority. Eventually hangs the entire computer. To solve this problem, by removing all lower-priority programs from the menu, which is responsible for startup.
Another reason for the lack of RAM may be insufficient amount of physical or virtual memory. To solve the problem we must first understand which one is more loaded. Check the amount of virtual memory in the file upload using the toolbar. Set its size to make it twice the physical memory. After this operation the computer will need rebooting.
Check the size of physical memory in the following way: "My computer" - "Properties". If you see that the physical memory larger than 4 gigabytes, then the best solution is to install a new, 64-bit OSes. If the limit is memory less, it is best to buy in store additional bar memory and use it to increase the disk space.
Most often in computer stores you can find such types of RAM like DDR2 and DDR3, since they are used in the creation of modern computers. It can be supplied with special tools, then it is necessary to establish acquired strap memory.

Advice 3: How to increase memory for Minecraft

Many gamers loved playing Minecraft, sometimes faced with a situation where everything in it is very basic. If this happens repeatedly, and in fact throughout the gameplay, an engaging thereof is lost altogether. And, often no reinstallation did not help to cope with such a disaster.
Without a sufficient amount of memory Minecraft can't play

Memory bad, even in the game

Often the answer to this and other similar questions lies on the surface. In many cases, the problem with the " freezing "of Minecraft is the lack of memory. No, the forgetfulness of the gamer in this case is absolutely nothing to do with. Talking about RAM (memory or simply RAM) is a kind of temporary storage data that the processor uses to perform the desired at a particular point operations.

It is easy to come to such logical conclusion: the more space it allocates RAM for a particular program (particularly Minecraft), the faster one runs and the better the chance that no problems with it arise, in principle, will not. Moreover, it may be not so much in the novelty of the computer gamer, as in what memory the machine emit under various operations.

And in the case of "Minecraft" to make the game function better, you will have to resolve difficulties with software Java platform on which this game (as well as many other applications) works.

Possible errors with Java and Troubleshooting

Sometimes problems happen due to improper installation of its drivers - for example, due to the fact that they do not match the bitness of the system. Spy this indicator by clicking the right mouse button on "My computer" and selecting the "Properties" tab. In one of the opened lines will be written, whether Windows is 32 or 64 bits.

If you find that a gamer has installed the wrong driver for the desired program, then they should be removed. After that, you need to download the appropriate resource (for example, with any of those Internet portals that spetsializiruyutsya on software for Minecraft) such that match the bitness of the system, and install them.

Then you need to go to Java. In XP this is done via a disc or via file Explorer while in Windows 7 by entering the control panel through the start menu of your computer. Going to control panel Java, and on it - on the same tab, click View. In the window that opens, there will only be one line larger number of them can cause problems.

If this occurs, it is better to remove the installed on your computer Java version, and after to clean the registry (such action has a special utility, for example WinUtilities and CCleaner). Will also have to kill Minecraft. Then, you must install Java, which is suitable to the capacity of the system and games.

Overclocking RAM for Minecraft

Next you need to proceed directly to an increase in the allocation for the gameplay of memory. For this you need to repeat the above steps with the sunset on the Java control panel and view the settings of the product. A window with Runtime Parameters there will be empty - it will fill most gamers need equipment.

Their particular value depends entirely on the total amount of RAM. If, for example, it has 4 gigabytes of RAM, you can type in the above window the following parameters: -Xms1024M -Xmx3072M. The first number indicates the minimum amount of memory and the second maximum. It is also worth instead of the first figure to enter-Xincgc (it's Garbage Collector that cleans up unused objects from memory).

However, the above is suitable only for 64-bit Windows. If you have to deal with 32-bit system to allocate it under Minecraft more GB of RAM makes no sense. In any case, after all the changes in the window with Java, you must first click OK and then Apply. Now the game must earn a lot faster and without the hated lag.

Advice 4: How to change RAM in laptop

To quickly change the memory modules in the laptop, we must first find out where are the slots. Then remove the lid and just add a new module. Or change the old to the new memory modules.
the memory modules in the laptop
You will need
  • RAM, notebook, screwdriver
Often the owners of laptops there is the question of the replacement of RAM. It is very often just not enough. So you can not buy a new one, but simply to improve your existing laptop. To change the operational memory, you must first determine where it is located. Looking for this information in the manual to the laptop or the Internet. Often, the operational memory of hiding cover, which is on the opposite side of the device. But in some models the memory can be under the keyboard or near the motherboard. In this case, you will have to partially disassemble the laptop.
If the slots for the memory modules are at the bottom, and they closed the lid, then just take a screwdriver and Unscrew the bolts. Previously remove the battery. Then take out the plastic cover. We may see one or more memory modules SO-DIMM or SO-SIMM. These are the analogues of memory for desktop PCs only cropped length. Move aside the clips and gently remove the modules. Then in the same way set a new and fasten the lid. Ready.
If the operational memory is under the keyboard or near the motherboard, it will be a little difficult. Have to disassemble the laptop. Most often, the disassembly process starts with the front panel. Remove the battery, Unscrew the bolts that hold the panel. Then turn over the laptop and remove the panel. We will be the bolts that hold the keyboard. Unscrew them, move the keyboard. If you want to take it off completely, you will need to disconnect the ribbon cable that goes to the motherboard. Next, look for steel panel that hides the operational memory. Unscrew the screws and remove. Here we got to the memory. Now move the retaining clips and gently pull the modules. Then in their place put new RAM memory. All actions are performed in reverse order.
Important in the process of replacing the RAM is not in a hurry. And be sure to remove the battery. Because RAM is sensitive to static electricity, it can easily be damaged if the battery is connected to the laptop. Keep calm and remove the RAM carefully so as not to damage the small contact group.
