unless you have enabled hot add cpu and memory, you will need to power off and shutdown the VM.

Right Click the VM, Edit Settings and change CPU and Memory as per your requirements.

Power ON VM.

No changes are required in the VM, its plug and play. So it will recognise the change of memory and CPU.

Windows 7 VM Change Memory
Windows 7 VM Change nimber of CPUs
One question which gets asked alot, is do I use Sockets or Cores.

Just change the Sockets value, cores is used if you have a specific licensing requirement.

A Socket is 1 CPU (virtual cpu).
