Got this email:
Thanks in advance,
All I can think of is make sure to click on the SET button as otherwise the amount you set (if you just click on OK) will not take affect.
What value does it keep resetting to?
I had a problem of this sort a while back, i was told to post a highjack this log and people here fixed it.
I think i had it again as well, but changing the setting worked.
If you have the pagefile on a secondary disk (first, don't tell Perris... ) I think the setting reverts to zero on the primary.
However, I don't think that's your issue.... researching...
Mastershakes brings up a decent point, how about a screenie of his configuration which would show the drive(s) it's configured to.
Also, see if the change will stick if set in the registry. Start, Run, Regedit...
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
Double-click PagingFiles, the entry should appear as
C:\pagefile.sys xxx xxx
With the first value being location, second being minimum size and third being maximum size. Change the values accordingly, reboot and see what happens.
