Windows 7: Paging File

06 Feb 2010   #1

Win 7
Paging File

When my system boots I get a message that there is no paging file and windows will set a tempoary one. I have 4 gigs of ram so I go through the procedure of setting a page file size and reboot after which I get the same message. Can someone tell me what I must do to correct this?

Thanks, Bob

If you could un-hide protected OS files in folder options and look on the root of the C drive. (just open C) and give us a screen shot, or just see if there is a file there called "pagefile.sys" and see how big it is. This woudl be a good start.

Also, you must remember to click "set" when changing the paging file (or virtual memory). If you don't hit "set" when doing will not take.

Paging File

I did all that you suggested without success I did clicl on SET and I could not find pagefile.sys, I'm wondering if it could possibly be that I do not have full administrative rights. Non matter what I do it reverts back to NO PAGING FILE.
