Hello there.

In Windows sometimes it 'forgets' its window placement but luckily we can set it back to maximised windows by default.

To do this please do the following.

* Double-click "My Computer"
* Maximise window by clicking the icon on the top right.
* Left click "Tools" menu.
* Left click "Folder Options"
* Left click "View" tab.
* Left click "Apply to All Folders" in the "folder view" section
* Finally left click "OK"

This will save your window placement to be maximised by default, for any new windows opened.

Hope this helps.

Virtual Memory is low


To change the size of the virtual memory paging file

You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may also prevent you from completing this procedure.

1.

Open System in Control Panel.

2.

On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.

3.

On the Advanced tab, under Virtual memory, click Change.

4.

Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.

5.

Under Paging file size for selected drive, click Custom size, and type a new paging file size in megabytes in theInitial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, and then click Set.

If you decrease the size of either the initial or maximum page file settings, you must restart your computer to see the effects of those changes. Increases typically do not require a restart.

Note

Right Click on My computer then select properties OR

To open System, click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.

To have Windows choose the best paging file size, click System managed size.

For best performance, do not set the initial size to less than the minimum recommended size under Total paging file size for all drives. The recommended size is equivalent to 1.5 times the amount of RAM on your system. Usually, you should leave the paging file at its recommended size, although you might increase its size if you routinely use programs that require a lot of memory.

To delete a paging file, set both initial size and maximum size to zero, or click No paging file. Microsoft strongly recommends that you do not disable or delete the paging file.

Take three numbers & find the maximum &minimum &draw a flow chart


if a>b and a>c then max = a
if b>a and b>c then max = b
if c>b and c>a then max = c

if a<b and a<c then min = a
if b<a and b<c then min = b
if c<b and c<a then min = c

I had same problem on my new XP Home Edition . It's got 1GB of RAM and I reckon the software is just comparing the raw numbers i.e 1 is less than 3 so it doesn't think it has enough memory. I reset my Virtual Memory and the game works fine.
To fix, try this
Right-click on My Computer icon, and select Properties.
Click on the Advanced tab,
then select the Settings button within the Performance section.
In the Performance Options window, click on the Advanced tab, and then select the Change button in the Virtual Memory section.
Click the Custom size button...
Change the Initial size (MB) setting to 4000
Change the Maximum size (MB) setting to 4000
Select SET to accept the change, which will close the Virtual Memory window. Select OK to close the Performance Options window. And select OK to exit the System Properties window. Oh, and don't forget to restart your computer. I hope this helps.

If you actually have a reason for manually setting the amount of space used by VM then the general rule of thumb is to make it 1.5 times the amount of physical memory you have (eg. if you have 1 gig the set VM to 1.5 - both initial and max). That said you are better leaving it set to automatic and let Windows manage VM.

How to be solve banker algorithm?example


I m providing you this from my college notes

Banker's Algorithm


* multiple instances of resource types IMPLIES cannot use resource-allocation graph

* banks do not allocate cash unless they can satisfy customer needs when a new process enters the system

* declare in advance maximum need for each resource type

* cannot exceed the total resources of that type

* later, processes make actual request for some resources

* if the the allocation leaves system in safe state grant the resources

* otherwise, suspend process until other processes release enough resources



Banker: Data Structures define MAXN 10 /* maximum number of processes */
#define MAXM 10 /* maximum number of resource types */
int Available[MAXM]; /* Available[j] = current # of unused resource j */
int Max[MAXN][MAXM]; /* Max[i][j] = max demand of i for resource j */
int Allocation[MAXN][MAXM]; /* Allocation[i][j] = i's current allocation of j*/
int Need[MAXN][MAXM]; /* Need[i][j] = i's potential for more j */
/* Need[i][j] = Max[i][j] - Allocation[i][j] */

Notation:

X <= Y iff X[i] <= Y[i] for all i

(0,3,2,1) is less than (1,7,3,2)

(1,7,3,2) is NOT less than (0,8,2,1)

Each row of Allocation and Need are vectors: Allocation_i and Need_i



Banker: Example

Initially:

Available
A B C
10 5 7

Later Snapshot:

Max - Allocation = Need Available
A B C A B C A B C A B C
P0 7 5 3 0 1 0 7 4 3 3 3 2
P1 3 2 2 2 0 0 1 2 2
P2 9 0 2 3 0 2 6 0 0
P3 2 2 2 2 1 1 0 1 1
P4 4 3 3 0 0 2 4 3 1



Banker: Safety Algorithm

* consider some sequence of processes

* if the first process has Need less than Available

* it can run until done

* then release all of its allocated resources

* allocation is increased for next process

* if the second process has Need less than Available

* ...

* then all of the processes will be able to run eventually

* IMPLIES system is in a safe state



Banker: Safety Algorithm

STEP 1: initialize
Work := Available;
for i = 1,2,...,n
Finish[i] = false
STEP 2: find i such that both
a. Finish[i] is false
b. Need_i <= Work
if no such i, goto STEP 4
STEP 3:
Work := Work + Allocation_i
Finish[i] = true
goto STEP 2
STEP 4:
if Finish[i] = true for all i, system is in safe state



Banker: Safety Example

Using the previous example, P1,P3,P4,P2,P0 satisfies criteria.

Max - Allocation = Need <= Work Available
A B C A B C A B C A B C
P1 3 2 2 2 0 0 1 2 2 3 3 2 3 3 2
P3 2 2 2 2 1 1 0 1 1 5 3 2
P4 4 3 3 0 0 2 4 3 1 7 4 3
P2 9 0 2 3 0 2 6 0 0 7 4 5
P0 7 5 3 0 1 0 7 4 3 10 4 7
10 5 7<<< initial system



Banker: Resource-Request Algorithm

STEP 0: P_i makes Request_i for resources, say (1,0,2)
STEP 1: if Request_i <= Need_i
goto STEP 2
else ERROR
STEP 2: if Request_i <= Available
goto STEP 3
else suspend P_i
STEP 3: pretend to allocate requested resources
Available := Available - Request_i
Allocation_i := Allocation_i + Request_i;
Need_i := Need_i - Request_i
STEP 4: if pretend state is SAFE
then do a real allocation and P_i proceeds
else
restore the original state and suspend P_i



Banker: Resource-Request Algorithm [129]

Say P1 requests (1,0,2)

Compare to Need_1: (1,0,2) <= (1,2,2)

Compare to Available: (1,0,2) <= (3 3 2)

Pretend to allocate resources:

Max - Allocation = Need Available
A B C A B C A B C A B C
P0 7 5 3 0 1 0 7 4 3 2 3 0<<<
P1 3 2 2 3 0 2<<< 0 2 0<<<
P2 9 0 2 3 0 2 6 0 0
P3 2 2 2 2 1 1 0 1 1
P4 4 3 3 0 0 2 4 3 1

Is this safe? Yes: P1, P3, P4, P0, P2

Can P4 get (3,3,0)? No, (3,3,0) > (2,3,0) Available

Can P0 get (0,2,0)? (0,2,0) < (2,3,0) Available

Pretend: Available goes to (2,1,0)

Thanks And Regards

Too many connections win xp


In Windows XP Professional the maximum is 10, but you can set this to a lower value. You can use the Shared Folders snap-in to determine the maximum number of users that are permitted to access a folder. In the Shared Folders details pane, click the shared folder for which you want to determine the maximum number of concurrent users who can access the folder. On the Action menu, click Properties, displaying the Properties dialog box for the shared folder. The General tab shows you the user limit. Remember Win SP the maximus is 10. You can also use the Shared Folders snap-in to determine if the max numberof users that are permitted to access a folder has be reached.

Determine the number of connections to the share and the max connections allowed. If the max number of connections has already been made, the user cannot connect to the shared resource.

What is 'd Maximum PhysicalMemory 4 WinXP? How can i speed up 3DMAX Rendering?


Max speed depends on your M/board, dear. If the slots are empty, double what you have for a start. WIn XP doesn't care. You can go past 1 Gig.

Check Bios and open up you AGP or PCI apature to maximum allowed.

Also set your shared memory for VGA to 128 MB or more.

For your processor, be careful. Factory settings come with processor settings preset. Check BIOS first, see what it's set at and compare with listed processor speed for your machine. If they match, leave them alone; work on RAM.
