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.

I can't install Windows Xp Sp2 For Compaq Presario Cq60 Model. a blue screen error occured after completing the files from cd to ram before entering lience agreement


You need to check your system ram or memory. If you have 2 system ram or memory unplug the other memory and install the windows xp sp2 again. If still having a blue screen try the other memory then run the setup again. Also if you have an extra hard disk drive you can test it that or plug your hard disk drive to the other laptop and run the windows xp sp2 using your hard drive. If you can install the windows xp sp2 on the other laptop that means your hard disk drive are good. If your memory and to the other laptop are compatible plug it and run the windows xp sp2 installer to see and to diagnose what are really causing problem. Have a nice day.

My laptop is a dell latitude d600 it starts up but will not go past the windows xp loading bit then goes back to the start again


Could be a number of issues here.
Can you boot it into safe mode (F8)?
If you can get into safe mode without it rebooting, check to see if any newly installed drivers are causing the problem. (I'm assuming you have not changed the processor etc).
Download and install memtest, this will check to see if you have Ram that is failing.

If you are unable to access safe mode, then try booting from CD using a Linux based boot OS (Ubuntu or Magix), That may give you some idea as to whether it is a hardware fault or a corrupted windows files. (possibly a virus)?

If you have a spare hard drive, try installing that and installing a fresh copy of your OS, again, if this works without issue, then the problem may lie with the original hard drive.

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..

Windows failed to start a recent hardware or software change might be the cause


did you try the safe mode in XP?
when you start the pc, start hitting F8 until the pc prompts the safe mode , in the safe mode there are the minimum of drivers available , so you can see what is causing it often an device driver or a graphics card , you have to work around and check what you have recently changed if this doesnt help try installing xp over the existing version , thus repairing bad files.

when this doesn't help there is only one option, format he c:\drive (but make BACKUPS first ..) and start all over again.

Plz help me with my problem in my computer


Hi, Hardware wise this could be a memory issue. However, more often than not, it would be similar to a video problem that it either freezes or BSOD. Try reseating your mem sticks; OS wise, it may be corrupt drivers or XP startup files. Try to run in Safe Mode and check it if will load fully. If yes, you can start finding out anything out of the ordinary. If no also, then you may have to repair Windows; Virus wise, it may be that you have a virus or malicious software running at startup instructing your PC to shutdown. Try running in Safe Mode. If it will load, go to Start, Run, type "msconfig", Startup. Check all the programs that run at start up and uncheck those that you do not recognize. Reboot. If it will not run even in Safe Mode, you may need to reinstall/repair your Windows XP. Good luck and hope this be of some help to you.
