Re: Win2K Server

Try restarting in safemode.  Shut down your computer, then manually restart tap either the F8 key or F9 key, sorry I don't remember which key it is, but try F8 first.  Then go into safemode, when it's loaded try a restart and see what is does. Good Luck

How to disable and re-enable hibernation on a computer that is running Windows

The Hiberfil.sys hidden system file is located in the root folder of the drive where the operating system is installed. The Windows Kernel Power Manager reserves this file when you install Microsoft Windows. The size of this file is approximately equal to the amount of random access memory (RAM) that is installed on the computer.
The computer uses the Hiberfil.sys file to store a copy of the system memory on the hard disk when the hybrid sleep setting is turned on. If this file is not present, the computer cannot hibernate.
Hibernation is made unavailable when you set the value of the Hibernate after setting to Never by using the Power Options item in Control Panel. To make hibernation unavailable, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate off, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER.
To make hibernation available, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then type cmd in the Start Search box.
In the search results list, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.
When you are prompted by User Account Control, click Continue.
At the command prompt, type powercfg.exe /hibernate on, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window.

How to make Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition see more than 4GB RAM

Issue – After upgrading a server to Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition and adding additional memory, the OS still shows only 4 GB of RAM.

Additional Information – Physical Address Extension (PAE)

In Windows Server 2003, PAE is automatically enabled only if the server is using hot-add memory devices. In this case, you do not have to use the /PAE switch on a system that is configured to use hot-add memory devices. In all other cases, you must use the /PAE switch in the Boot.ini file to take advantage of memory over 4GB.

The newer Dell servers are capable of using hot-add memory devices, but the older servers do not.

If you upgrade an older Dell server and are experiencing the issue above, make the following change to the boot.ini file.

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003, Enterprise" /fastdetect /PAE

Add the /PAE flag to the end of the boot device. Then reboot the server.

After rebooting the correct amount of memory should be displayed

To summarize, PAE is a function of the Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 memory managers that provides more physical memory to a program that requests memory. The program is not aware that any of the memory that it uses resides in the range greater than 4 GB, just as a program is not aware that the memory it has requested is actually in the page file.

Factory reset lenovo g580

Step 1:
There are a variety of reasons you may need to reboot a Lenovo laptop. These can include the installation of a new program, the dreaded blue screen of death or to free up memory that has been hijacked by a program that is now closed. There are three ways to reboot and all are simple to accomplish.

Click on your start menu button on your screen. Click on "Shut Down" or "Turn Off Computer." Click on the drop down box if you are running a version of Windows before XP (such as 2000 or 98). Select the "Restart" option and then click "OK." On XP or later versions, click on "Restart." The laptop will then reboot. Press and hold down the "Alt," "Ctrl" and "Shift" keys simultaneously. This will bring up the Task Manager. Pressing and holding the same keys again will force the computer to shut down. Press the power button to reboot the computer. This feature should be used when the mouse has stopped working and you cannot access the start button. Hold the power button in the "Off" position for approximately 5 seconds. This will force the machine to shut down. Press or slide the button again to reboot the laptop. Use this process when you get the "blue screen of death" or the computer is not responding to either the mouse or the keyboard.

Mamimum RAM for User @ 3GB using boot.ini switch on 4GB Physical RAM

The DOS will always take a percentage of the physical RAM on the motherboard leaving the rest for the User. By default the Windows Operating System will use 50% of the physical RAM installed on the motherboard leaving the user the remaining 50% this can be changed using a switch in the boot.ini file

The /3GB was originally meant to be used in systems that have 3GB or more of RAM something that is no longer quite as rare as it used to be Windows XP SP3 will support upto 4GB although on a 32bit (x86) version of Windows will acually see 3.25gb that is the limitation.

However, even if you don't have 3 GB or more of memory, you can still use the /3GB switch. the switch can have any value between 2048 (2 GB) and 3072 (3 GB) megabytes. It needs to be expressed in decimal notation.

The /3GB switch applies to 32-bit systems only (x86).

Example with Windows XP SP3 Home Edition with the recovery console installed this gives you the option of default 50-50% split or the 3GB switch 75-25% split.

The /noexecute parameter enables, disables, and configures Data Execution Prevention (DEP), a set of hardware and software technologies designed to prevent harmful code from running in protected memory locations using the optin switch enables DEP only for operating system components, including the Windows kernel and drivers. Administrators can enable DEP on selected executable files by using the Application Compatibility Toolkit (ACT).

The /burnmemory parameter specifies the amount of memory, in megabytes, that Windows cannot use in this example, /burnmemory=128 will reduce the physical RAM memory that is available to Windows by 128 MB.

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 3GB Switch" /noexecute=optin /3GB /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition " /noexecute=optin /burnmemory=128 /fastdetect
C:CMDCONSBOOTSECT.DAT="Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" /cmdcons

Check out the noexecute and the 3GB switch plus all available boot.ini switches HERE

I suggest that you use AnalogX MaxMem it is a realtime physical memory management program that automatically ensures that you always have as much physical memory available as possible used with the 3GB switch you should never have memory issues ever again.
