Without knowing any specs for your system it could be just about anything at this point. Where is the pagefile located? How large are you trying to set it to? How much free space is available on the volume where you wish to place it?

Here is a link with information to get you started:

Take note of the info regarding checking the registry to see if your settings have been recorded.

Cheers.

this is a built it thing that Microsoft does with virtual memory. The default lowest setting for virtual memory is 20MB.

after building a new machine I set the virtual memory to 0 MB, then defrag the hard drive, then set the virtual memory to twice the size of memory install in the machine.

What this does, it set all the virtual memory contiguous, that way you do not have the virtual memory fragmented.

hope this helps you

Good Luck
