I would say NO.
Just enjoy the POWER! w00t w00t
I'm a power hungry person.
Ive added memory in XP Pro and no you dont have to reconfigure anything.
No there is nothing you have to do as long as when you boot up it shows the correct amount of RAM... yes its that easy.
It's not like the previous versions of windows where you had to re-install the OS just to make it adjust itself to the new resource or memory.
huh? what versions of windows did do that?
From my experience Win95 and 98 slowed down when I added ram to the system. I also read it somewhere on in those computer mags... back in those days.
if you are letting the system manage your virtual memory, then the initial minimum will be permanently increased
this will fragment the pagefile
ypu should probably have to defrag the pagefile after you increase your memory
but on the other hand
everyone else is also right, because you won't notice a hit of a fragmented pagefile unless you are really putting your memory under severe pressure
