Hi,

Two possible reasons:
1. Your harddisk where the swap is located no longer have that much free space to allocate for your desired swap size.
2. You have to click on the Set button after you have changed the Initial & Maximum size, OK, OK, OK

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things went or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Skype kernel32


Skype v6.6.0.106 is the last version which supports XP SP2. If you try install newer version, you will need SP3 installed, or you will get the kernel32 problem "Failed to get proc adress for getLogicalProcessorInformation (KERNEL32.Dll)".

If you don't want to install SP3 for your XP, here is a work around for you to run Skype with XP SP2.
1. Download Skypesetupfull.exe v6.3.30.105;
2. Uninstall your current version of Skype from Control Panel;
3. Block the website download.skype.com in your router or in the
Host file;
4. Delete any auto downloaded skypesetup.msi in %Temp%
folder;
5. Install Skype v6.3.30.105.
Done.

Tip

Reboot and run in safe mode in windows 7,Vista,XP or 2000


Insert the CD then reboot. While the system is booting, hit the F12 key to access the boot menu (this could be a different key depending on your system.
1.) Click the "Start" button from the taskbar. Select the "Turn off computer" option if you are running a Windows OS Operating System before Windows Vista, or select the right arrow in Vista. Select the "Restart" option
2.) Press and hold the Ctrl+Alt+Del keys simultaneously. Do it again. This will reboot the computer
3.) Shut down the computer. Sometimes the computer will not respond to a reboot. Maybe the keys are temporarily disabled or the system has chosen to completely ignore you. In these rare cases, it may be better to shut the computer off using the power button. If you do shut off the computer, press and hold the power button for 3 to 5 seconds. Then be sure to wait a minimum of 45 seconds before turning it back on. This allows the capacitors in the computer time to discharge, which allows the memory (not the hard drive) to do a full dump of data. This allows a cleaner restart when you turn the computer back on.
4.)Disconnect the power cord. Do this as a last resort. Unsaved data may not be retrievable with this option, but sometimes it is the only option. Reconnect the power cord. Turn the computer on. else Insert the CD then reboot. While the system is booting, hit the F12 key to access the boot menu (this could be a different key depending on your system. If you have a problem with your hardware configuration or your computer's display drivers that prevents Windows from loading normally, you may be able to resolve the problem by booting into Safe Mode and changing the relevant settings. To enter Safe Mode in Windows 7, Vista, XP, or 2000:

Note: If you have more than one partition installed, you may need to select an operating system and press Enter before entering Safe Mode.
Turn on or restart your computer.
After the memory test, the words "Starting Windows" will appear on a black background. When this happens, press and hold the F8 key. This will present a screen with the following options to choose from. The exact moment that F8 is pressed will determine the contents of the list, and the list may vary from computer to computer. For example, your computer may not do a memory test or it may have a SCSI BIOS to load in addition to the motherboard's BIOS. If you have trouble getting the list below to appear, restart the computer and then press F8 repeatedly while the computer is starting.
Safe Mode: Boots Windows with only the basic drivers needed to load the operating system. Uses basic drivers for mouse, keyboard, display (VGA), mass storage, and default system services and drivers, with no network components. In Windows 2000, a log file will be created to track the progress of the system boot, which is located in the Windows 2000 folder.
Safe Mode with Networking: Loads the Safe Mode configuration, but also enables network devices and services. In Windows 2000, a log file will be created to track the progress of the system boot, which is located in the Windows 2000 folder.
Safe Mode with Command Prompt: Loads Windows in Safe Mode, and, after logging in, opens a command prompt instead of the normal desktop. In Windows 2000, a log file will be created to track the progress of the system boot, which is located in the Windows 2000 folder.Note: You should try booting to the command prompt only if you feel comfortable operating within the DOS environment.
Enable Boot Logging: Boots Windows with all of the normal files and drivers, but writes their status to a log file at each step. In Windows 2000, this log file is located in the Windows 2000 folder and is named ntbtlog.txt.
Enable VGA Mode: Boots Windows using a plain VGA 16-color 640x480 display driver for the highest level of compatibility with video cards. In Windows 7 and Vista, this mode is called Enable Low-Resolution Video. It is otherwise identical.
Last Known Good Configuration: Boots Windows using the last registry configuration that is known to work. This is a way of undoing problems created by installing incorrect drivers or possibly by registry corruption. It will not, however, fix problems caused by corrupted or missing files.
Use the arrow keys to move up or down this menu to make your selection, and then press Enter. If you need to update software or access the Internet while in Safe Mode, select "Safe Mode with Networking".

Solution to Virtual Memory Too Low Problem


This problem was reported by one of our readers that in spite of having a sufficient amount of RAM, he is running out of Virtual Memory and his Windows PC gives the following error:

19f986e.png
Your system is low on virtual memory. To ensure that Windows runs properly, increase the size of your virtual memory paging file. For more information, see Help.
This is a common problem and you may have seen it if you are trying to open many heavy applications at the same time like Microsoft Office.
Let’s see what the causes are and what can be done at this stage.
Windows XP or Vista uses the concept of Virtual Memory that aims at providing the additional memory from the Hard Disk if most of the RAM of the computer is already occupied. This memory used from the Hard Disks is called Paging File. Windows reserve some part of the memory for this purpose only (this is one of the reasons why we see less memory than specified on the hard disk).
Virtual Memory also known as Page File or Swap File can be located at C:\pagefile.sys (it is system hidden and can be viewed if you Uncheck the option of “Hide Protected Operating System Files” inside Folder Options).

My windows xp sp2 starts very slowly which free software i have to download?


May be in your windows drive there are not enough space. please check out this how many space are free. for windows xp sp2 you need minimum 15 gb space. and the other solution is clear temporary files from your temp folder. just you can go run command then type %temp% then open a folder which contain too much temporary files. select all and delete these. and the other solution is your startup or boot run many software which slow your xp. then follow this solution. go to run and type msconfig then open a new window now go to startup tab then unmark the startup software catagory which are not necessary for you. for doing this job but if you not get any progrees then format your xp. thanks

Windows xp home addition V2002 SP2 gphone.exe not found


The very first thing we do is to solve your problem about the start-up error. For your information, your operating system was corrupt that is why there is prompt error message appear in the windows start-up. The best thing here to do is to start your computer in safe mode and this can be done by pressing F8 key until a operating system menu will appear. Select Safemode and wait until you get into the User Account Login screen. Enter to your account and then restore your computer to an earlier time. Go to All Programs - Accesories - System Tools - and then select System Restore.
But if this procedure failed, the only last thing should be done is to reinstall your computer operating system. Leave comments for further assistants. okay..

Error with cmd.exe


If this is a "blue screen" error then the most likely cause is corrupted or missing files in your Windows XP system folder or you may have faulty RAM memory. Do a system restore from within windows first. If this doesn't solve the problem then do a full system repair using your XP CD. If this fails then you most likely have faulty RAM memory. Try removing all but one of the DIMM modules then reboot with 1 single Dimm module to determine if this is causing the fault.
Feel free to contact me should you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,

My computer Desktop is not running.



Hi hichris_4u

You should be able to replace the Explorer.exe. Type in the command prompt expand C:\I386\explorer.ex_ %systemroot%\explorer.exe This will expand a new copy to the windows directory.

You should also download a new version of SP2 and reinstall it. You also could download a clean copy of SP2 Click the Download button. The file is 266MB. Create a folder on the C:\ root called SP2 and download it there. Create another folder called SP2 files now at a command prompt type C:\SP2\WindowsXP-KB835935-SP2-ENU.exe /x it’ll ask you to specify an directory so point it to the SP2 Files folder and let it extract there. Now type in the command prompt expand C:\SP2 Files\I386\explorer.ex_ %systemroot%\explorer.exe to expand a new copy to the windows directory.

If you get an error on destination, try expand C:\SP2 Files\I386\explorer.ex_ c:\windows\explorer.exe

If you expanding fron the I386 from the C:\ root try expand C:\I386\explorer.ex_ c:\windows\explorer.exe

If all fails, try and download SP2 onto another machine and then burn it to a CD for install.

Good Luck,

Mark
