    Won't recognize pagefile

    I have been loading a backup computer. It is a Pentium II, 266 Mhz, 125 MB RAM w/6.5 GB HD.
    I loaded Norton Antivirus & Updated and scanned. I installed W2K SP4.
    Every time I boot, I get an error message stating that I don't have enough virtual memory because my pagefile is set to 20 MB. I go to the Performance tab in My Computer, click advanced. I set the pagefile for 150 minimum, 400 maximum. I set this for both applications priority and background priority, settling on applications to use normally.
    OS says I have to reboot to get settings. On boot, I get the same error message. Currently, when I go to view the pagefile settings, they are correct. Nevertheless, the system continues to believe it only has 20MB. When I run applications, I get frequent error messages about the pagefile. There is nothing I can think of to do so I just keep going.

    I love windows. Really, I do. <img src=/S/cooked.gif border=0 alt=cooked width=50 height=46>

    Does anyone know what's up and how to fix it????
    Thanks.

    I have limited knowledge of W2k, but have you tried setting VM to "System Managed". If that takes you can then reset it to your preferred settings. HTH.

    Lisa,
    Are you logged on as a member of the administrator's group or the local administrator? Can you set the pagefile file to 0 and re-boot. That should allow you to delete the file. Then set the file to what you want, re-boot and check it.
