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.

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.

tee hee

if you are letting the system manage your virtual memory, then the initial minimum will be permanently increased

this will fragment the pagefile

and sooooooooooooooo

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

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
