Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
I get an error message just before the logon screen that says Virtual memory minimum Too Low. I get the option to click ok. So I click OK and then the screen stays all black. The mouse pointer still moves around. How can I solve this. I can't even log on the machine in safe mode.
Here's the procedure on how to increase virtual memory of your PC:
Right click on My Computer > left click on Properties > Advanced > Settings > Advanced. Under Virtual memory left click on Change.
Select (left click) on the Drive on wich Windows XP is installed. In most cases this will be Drive C.
Space available: Select the radio button labeled: Custom size:
To play it safe, in both the Initial (MB)size: and Maximun size: dialogue boxes type 2560 (i.e. allocate 2.5GB for the pagefile) provided you have the free memory space to spare. If you don't have enough free memory available enter the amount of memory you can spare, and meanwhile seriously consider getting a larger Hard Drive.
Mine is set to 4096MB (4GB), max. allowed by XP. This may seem like quite a lot, but the reason for this is that recent games now require a lot more real and virtual memory to function correctly, even if you have 2GB of RAM. Having a larger pagefile size does not hurt performance as such; it only takes up a bit of additional disk space.
After setting the new page file size left click on
OK > OK > OK. Then restart the computer.
