Hi Tom, I've been using XP Home since it appeared - now in SP3 and fully updated. The other day, for the first time, I had freeze "Out of Memory" yet I have 2 GB Crucial RAM and a huge amount of free HDD free space. (Steve Bass referred me to you) I would really appreciate your advice on this. Thank you , Bob Bowen (Auldsod) South Africa.
Right click My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Performance > Settings > Advanced tab > Virtual Memory > Change, and make sure 'System managed size' is selected for the drive with the Paging File.
Yes StuartS, I got that Low-High tweak from somewhere - can't remember where - and thought I'd try it. Then did not connect it to my problem. Thanks for educating me some more, which I much appreciate. At 72, I can STILL learn! I am facinated by Technology and PCs but was born way back in 1937, just a bit too long ago... Stay well and happy.
Thank you guys! Since ticking "System managed size" my problem has evaporated, and I reckon I can report a successful fix. Thank you all for the help. The old man greatly appreciates it! It's so easy - when you know HOW! I would never otherwise have cottoned on to this obscure (for me) fix... Funny thing - no warning or error recorded in Event Viewer. Best wishes to you all.
