Tony WONG

xp use more than 400m virtual memory shown in task manager

however, the swap file is still 300m as manually set before. No signal in
change of swap size.

am i wrong in understanding virtual memory?

thanks.

Very Likely!
Actually, XP "should" be set to allow XP to manage the swap file instead of
a fixed size. (In most cases, anyway)

How much RAM memory?

Try Ctrl+Alt+Delete to select Task Manager and click the Performance
Tab. Under Commit Charge what is the Total, the Limit and the Peak?

You should be able to gather more information from Task Manager. With
the Processes tab open select View, Select, Columns and check the boxes
before Peak Memory Usage and Virtual Memory size. What are the figures
for the 6 processes using the largest amounts?

If one of your programmes has a memory leak leaving the computer on 24/7
will exacerbate the problem, which you might otherwise live with.

I would be interested in seeing a Disk Defragmenter report. Open Disk
Defragmenter and click on Analyse. Select View Report and
click on Save As and Save. Now find VolumeC.txt in your My Documents
Folder and post a copy. Do this before running Disk Defragmenter as it
is more informative.

Hope this helps.
