XP - 'no pagefile.sys defined or too small' error

  AndyDy 13:23 08 Nov 2004

I have tried several suggestions for a solution.
1. the obvious, redfine the pagefile size
2. try to get Xp to manage page file size
3. registry edit to remove tempfile entry

All started after I used disk defrag! I was running XP Home when the problem started, now it si XP Pro and SP2 but neither upgrade/patch affected the issue in anyway.

I have no tried the reset to zero first option. I'll give it a go. Also found a suggestion to edit the registry item to move the destination for the file but will try this first, thx.

I fixed the problem by editing the registry to move the location of the file. Now I don't get that annoying error message!
