Having problems with your HP Media Center m1080n (PC099A#ABA) PC Desktop ?


Answers :

The usual recommendation from Microsoft is Pagefile = RAM x 1.5.
That would mean a 6GB pagefile in your case, but this rule comes from a time when people had 256 or 512 MB of RAM.
The safest way to set it up is to let Windows handle the size of the page file.
If yo want to set it manually, the make the initial size the same amount as the maximum size. This results in one large file which is not affected by disk fragmentation.
