Virtual Memory - Changing The Paging File Size
I currently have 4GB of RAM installed, of which in real terms, only 3.07GB is actually being used by my system.

I am wondering, given that my RAM is sitting at max. levels, if there are any reasons, advantages or benefits to be had in changing the Virtual Memory - Paging File Size for all Drives, from the current size of 3369MB to the recommended size of 4603MB, or more....say 4950MB??

FSX And Low Virtual Memory
I am running Vista 32bit with 4gigs of ram, AMD Phenom 9950, just put in an ATI 4870X2 with 8.11 drivers. I have two hard drives, one 250gb with the OS and FS9 and FSX on it and another 500gb with really nothing on it. I have my virtual memory set up as follows:

C: and D: drive set to system managed. Should I set the custom size and to what intial and max size?

Im leaning towards the 4870x2 card the cause of the memory leak not sure if it is a driver issue, might install the 5.8 version and see what happens. Also, plan on moving FS9 and FSX to the bigger drive.

Low Memory On Windows
I am using an Acer Aspire 5290G laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium. The laptop has 2GB RAM but I have been getting Low Memory warnings after which I have had to reload Windows. At the time the only not automatic applications running are Norton Internet Security, Messenger, iTunes and iPlayer from the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

I've tried increasing the virtual memory size to min 4096Mb, max 6144Mb so I'm hoping the problem will go away but it would be useful to know whether this is some kind of known fault or if it is just that Vista is so demanding! I had been running a similar or greater load quite happily under XP Pro on another laptop with only 512Mb RAM. The only intentional difference is that this laptop is running Norton Internet Security whereas the old one was running F-Secure. If the problem persists, is it worth me adding more physical RAM and/or trying a further increase in virtual memory?

Low Memory After Upgrade
After I upgraded to Vista my computer has not worked right. It's slower, needs to be restarted every day, I have no sound and other low memory problems. I have noticed that the windows old file is 43 GB which is almost half of my total memory. Is the best thing to fix my computer to go back to XP or just get rid of large files like the windows old so Vista can run properly. I don't even know where to start.

Constantly Getting The Low C: Memory Warning
I am running Vista Home Basic. I have good computer knowledge and skills although certainly not an expert. I can't understand why I am constantly getting the low C: memory warning. I store all pictures and music, etc. on a separate hard drive, and I have carefully gone over my program files and uninstalled any that didn't seem worthwhile. I have a 70 gig hard drive which seems like lots and is more than any computer I've owned before. Sometimes it seems that if I delete files, etc. to clear up memory and the next time I come back to my computer I'm out of memory again. I often get the "could not complete back up due to insufficient memory" notice. I'm unclear on what is being backed up and if this is part of the problem. I have 3 GB of RAM and the Virtual Memory is currently set at 3242 MB

D Drive Backup Get Showing An Error Low Memory
The C drive is the drive that hold all my programs, the D drive is for extra backup. Yesterday my laptop was showing me an error saying I'm low on memory. I thought that to be odd as I haven't really installed anything. So I uninstalled programs or software that I didn't need or used. Today no matter what I uninstall, and that has been quite a bit, the error keeps popping up saying that I have no memory left. Then it showed me I had 18 MB left and I went back to work. Within a short period of time, I suddenly had no memory left.

Virtual Memory And 12gb Of RAM
This is my first post in this forum, but I was just wondering if any of you had experience with virtual memory in Vista x64 and the page file when you have a large amount of RAM. I recently just build a machine which has 12gb of RAM. I am begginning to think that this was a waste of money, because no matter what I do, I cannot seem to get the ram useage to exceed 30 percent, or roughly 4gb of ram. I am a computer science major and completely understand how virtual memory works and what paging is; however, I was always taught that if the OS (Vista in this case) will only swap memory when the memory is full, but this has not been the case as I know that Vista is paging some of the memory onto the disk even though it has another 8gb of free memory to use.

I was just wondering what your thoughts were on disabling paging in Vista and if any of you have experience with doing so when you have a system with a large amount of memory. Also, I would love to hear anybody's explaination as to why Vista is paging the memory onto the HDD when in fact it's not neccessary in my case. Perhaps I do not understand it correctly? I am currently on a different computer, but tommorow I will disable the paging in Vista to see what kind of performance difference I experience, if any and post what I find.

Changing Virtual Memory Size
I am trying to change the size of Virtual memory on my sisters laptop. It is running vista home and has only 1 gb of RAM. I click on where you change the virtual memory and click CUSTOM (on the C drive, which is only hard drive she has). And i set it to 2048 min and 2048 max. I Click set then ok. then ok again, and once again ok. Then it prompts me to Restart the computer, so I do. But after I restart and check to see if it worked, it still shows that the custom size wasn't added.

Fast Machine Is Slowed Down By Virtual Memory.
Running Vista Ultimate 64-bit on M6400 notebook with 16GB RAM.

With 16GB RAM does Vista really need any virtual memory?

My quad core, 16GB RAM notebook would be faster without hard drive access due to virtual memory.

Can I turm off virtual memory or set it to some very low value (possibly 0)?

My preference is to use the 16GB RAM and should that be insufficient then I decide which programs to close. I don't want Vista using 4GB, or 6GB RAM, etc., and continually writing/reading to HD which slows things down and does not make full use of the physical RAM present.

Optimal Size The Virtual Memory System
I am running Vista Business x64 on my notebook. It is a C2D 2.00GHz with 4GB RAM and a Geforce Go 7700. My question is, what would be the optimal size of the virtual memory (page file) that my system should use? I currently have min=max=4092MB. Should I lower it or raise it to be 1.5x or 2.0x my RAM? Or should I leave it as 1.0x my RAM like it is now?

Virtual Memory Control And Settings In Windows
I need to know if there is anyway to specifically set Vista to allow a program to see a certain Size for Virtual memory. oracle Products require Virtual Memory to be verified before they go through installation. The problem here is that Windows Vista Paging files are not seen as Virtual memory for some reason. The system I have is set with 4000 plus mb of Paging file but when the oracle check completes it shows 0 mb available. Going to a newer version of Oracle is not an option as this is a required product for a College Course. Going back to XP is not an option since no one ever wrote XP Drivers for this hardware. I've hausted all the resources from HP and Oracle and need to try this end of the problem now.

Cannot Set Virtual Memory Home Premium
I noticed that my virtual memory is set to no pagefile? I've tried setting it to custom, system managed, etc. I always click the "set" button and it will show what I change it to if I set a custom size. When I reboot and go back to the settings, it is back to No Pagefile?

Virtual PC 2007 Windows ME - Place Virtual Disk
Am I correct in assuming that, for Windows ME to run in a Virtual PC 2007 window, the Windows ME virtual disk must be located inside a disk partition that is FAT32? On a test run, I tried to install WinME on a virtual disk in a folder that was in my normal Vista partition (NTFS), and it didn't get far. I tried placing the WinME virtual disk inside an FAT32 partition, and although I didn't finish the installation process, I got that far, with the WinME instalation screen having popped up and ready for installation. One other thing: Is it possible to place the WinME virtual disk inside a logical FAT32 partition? Or must it be a primary partition?

Excessive CPU Usage
After installing Vista Ultimate, I am experiencing problems with processes using an excessive amount of CPU. However when I run the task manager, and clicking on "Show processs from all users", I can't see which process is responsible since none is consuming more than a few percent of the CPU.My computer is obviously very slow and I haven't installed any program yet.

Excessive Disk Activity
For the past few weeks I have been attempting to create a Vista Home Premium configuration on a new Core 2 Duo PC. I though that I had finally created a stable config with all the proper hardware drivers and many of my apps. I then noticed that the disk activity light was on solid - and I couldn't figure out why.I ran a number of process tools, the only one that seemed to provide useful information being Perfmon. Perfmon showed two distinct types of disk activity.......

Excessive Login Time
I have a Dell Latitude D830 with Vista. My computer works fine as long as it is booted up and I have logged in to my profile. The problem appears to be that it does not hibernate properly and takes about 5 minutes to log in to my profile. It boots up normally. My questions on the long login problem are:

1. Can the gadget sidebar have anything to do with the excessive login time?
2. Is there any way I can view the steps of the login process to see what is causing the long delay?
3. Do you have any written procedure that I can use to debug this problem?

Excessive Amount Of Temp Files
I am running Vista Ultimate 32

a couple of weeks ago I had a problem with Disk Cleanup hanging because I had 116 Gig of Temp files.

Today I tried again and Disk Clean up hung again, this time I have 125 Gig temp files.

How can I have 125 gig temp files in two weeks, I do not do a lot of stuff on the Internet, basically I just muck around with Rail and flight Sim programs.

Excessive Disk Writing Is Back
I thought I managed to get rid of the annoying "excessive disk writing" problem by turning off superfetch and readyboost in services.msc. However now it seems like it is back. I've tried turning off ALL my services (background apps), but it's still there. IMMENSELY annoying. When I look at my resource monitor (access it via the task manager), it looks like there is some sort of Vista service still running that is causing all this trouble. See the applied image for resource monitor screen capture. sorry for the large image. I'll scale it better the next time.

Paging File - Why Do I Need It?
I recently bought an expensive new 1tb hdd & bought another 4gb of ram. I decided to turn of the paging file so that it saves wear & tear on my hdd & have had no problems whatsoever. Is there any disadvantage to having the paging file turned off? I heard that it mirrors the amount of ram you have, so mine was 8gb is this true? Also, i know vista only allows 32 bit apps to access 2gb of ram, but if i have a paging file, would windows allow 32 bit apps to use 2gb of ram as well as extra space in the paging file? Or does it only allow 2gb of memory ram or otherwise
