:( I had my virtual memmory setting set to 1.5X my ram witch is 1 gig. But today while playing AAO my game crashed and I got a message saying that my system ran out of virtual memory! I had it set to 15xx megs minimum and 16xx max, I now have it set to 2500 megs min 2600 megs max to make sure that it doesn't happen again. My pagefile is on my OS partition witch is a 44.5 gig partition, of that 24.8 gigs are available.

My questions are these:

1) With increasing the virtual memory, should this prevent the problem
2) could there be a problem with my pagefile, and if so should I delete it and allow it to rebuild itself? I know it is not fragmented as I have that system defragger program installed that runs at startup.
3) does anyone see a problem with the new virtual memory settings that I have set, and if so what recomendations do you have.

I believe the general belief is that you should set set min to like 2mb and OS to set max :)

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
