Windows 7: I set maximum memory to 2 with no pagefile

I set maximum memory to 2 with no pagefile

Ok so I was trying to install dell quickset which doesn't work no matter what I do since I upgraded to 8gb or ram and installed a ssd. The main problem is I don't have the pagefile turned on so windows won't boot and safe mode boots but only has 240MB of ram and it so full you can't run anything.

Can somebody please up, I have no system restore points. All I need to do is undo the max memory setting. Tried last known config, running msconfig in safe mode, bcdedit.

Can you get to System Properties? You can change the pagefile size there.

Poked about a bit and found System Properties IS sysdm.cpl. Use the runbox to load the control panel element. In the Advanced tab under Performance Settings you should find Virtual memory settings.

Hello Fataldesain, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could use the tutorial below to uncheck the Maximum memory box to have Windows use all available memory by default.

Afterwards, you could try to set your page file back to default of having your Windows drive C: managed by the system.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
