I got told from the hitman 2 forum cause my hitman 2 games still crashes after I installed ATI catalyst 3.0 and directx 9, thought that had worked but still problems and was told to turn my virtual memory up, my pc has 512mb of RAM thought that would of been enough or is virtual memory something totally different.

Re you on XP if so right click My Computer then properties then performance tab. Then click virtual memory and change it in there, from what i can gather its best to have the max and min at the same value.

Hi Yeah XP, I found it and it says that my virtual memory is set on custom size


initial size 768 MB
maximum size is 1536 MB

total page file size for all drives

minimum allowed 2 MB
recommended 766 MB
currently allocated 768 MB

Have you any idea what I should set them to or do they sound OK at what they are, I dunno if it would make any difference.

Must say that this XP isn't as great as Microsoft made out, my old windows 95 had less problems and thats saying something

Is it partitioned? Let me know what they are and their sizes.

Also how much is free on your main partition(the one windows is installed to)

Sorry I'm a novice where do I look to see if its partitioned
