Why will my computer not boot when memory is set above 1333? - Page 2

All I know is my computer acts like an overloaded mom/dad laptop from 2001 with the paging file enabled and it's faster than most SSD based computers without it.

Wow. Something isn't right then because it definitely shouldn't do that. Whatever works though.

It's a computer!

I get that a bunch of helpful bloggers are trying to save less knowledgeable people some trouble by saying "DON'T DISABLE IT!", but if anything on my computer is using 16GB of RAM I have a serious problem. I don't do any rendering so there's no excuse for the computer to use anywhere near that much RAM, unless I was deliberately trying to cause problems by opening 5000 tabs in waterfox or something.

It also takes up valuable disk space.

There may very well be something wrong with my windows install. It seems to happen with all my OSes. Windows, android, zorin, etc... but pagefile disabled is what works best for me.

Are you saying that your computer is using 16 GB of memory at times?

Valuable disk space? In 2016? With a 2 TB hard drive? I apologize for this reaction, but are you serious?! It would've been appropriate to say that back in 1995 or 2000 or maybe even as recent as like say 2005, but disk (err, drive) space today isn't an issue anymore. You can't spare 8 GB or even 16 GB for the page file? Really? I have a hell of a lot less space than you do yet I don't see a problem with it.

It might be worth doing some research on why you'd get significantly inferior performance with it enabled. That just seems like it's a bad sign to me.

I don't think my memory usage ever really goes above probably 6GB. I'd imagine the increased speed would be more beneficial in games than having the extra 8GB it can't use anyway, no?

Extra memory is for stability and accessibility, not speed. That's a different parameter. Some video games may have slightly increased fps (frames per second, not first person shooter) that utilize extra processing (such as GTA V or witcher 3, things w/ a lot of NPCs - non-playable characters). Windows is a bit retarded with managing RAM when it comes to scaling; i.e. multitasking 30 different programs. jk ily windows xD! Now, applications that do use a lot of memory involves rendering/editing videos/music or other content creation/productivity, such as photoshop or 3D modeling, memory does come in handy. Think of memory like a buffer - too little makes your computer laggy, while 8gb is the safe zone. Another situation of using lots of memory involves running dozens of applications at once, like streaming while playing a video game while programming that particular video game for bugs/fixes (developer stuff) and having multiple tabs open on an internet browser, etc.

i.e. you notice the bottom right corner of your taskbar may have like 6 to 9 applications, right? Well, some power users could have like 20-30 applications. Think of the people who use 3 to 9 monitors, like security monitors or people who work on the "breaking news". Basically, if you're a professional -> more memory is appropriate for you. For anyone else, who isn't an enthusiast, more than 8gb of memory is arguably unnecessary.

Lol yea more than 8GB is overkill, ive at most used 12GBs before and I don't know what the hell I did to make it shoot up that much. but playing BF4 and iTunes, loads of IE tabs open doesn't really use more than 5-6 if I do recall

Don't ask me why I have 24GBS cause ive never used anything close to that LOL
