Need help reducing/removing Pagefile

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My Task manager is indicating that my school laptop has 14,7Gb on Ram, Although it only has 3gb of physical memory installed.

So I have come to the conclusion that the Pagefile takes up alot of memory. I set the pagefile to get deleted upon Shutdown to no avail.

How can I stop it from taking up so much space, making my PC sluggish?

it is a Lenovo Thinkpad R61i with Windows XP

Single right click my computer

Properties

Advanced

Under performance hit settings

Then the advanced tab in there

Then you have your page file, you can change your max settings in there

i assume you mean 4GB, which is max for that laptop. if the os is 32 bit, then it will only show 3gb. you can upgrade to vista or win7 64 bit to use max spec.

That removed the Pagefile, like I wanted, but it didnt seem to do the trick. Task manager still gives me weird numbers:

I tried to translate the important numbers from norwegian to English

I harvested a 1gb stick and a 2gb stick from a 1 year newer school computer and put it in my school computer. still really bad ram though.

Did you restart your machine after you changed it?
