I need to know if I can configure my pc to adjust to the increase.
It's good to have more "ram Memory" but thats not virtual memory.
You'll find the option in System Propertys/performance/settings.
A pageing file is an area on the hard disk that Windows uses as
if it where ram.
My 20 and 40 gig hd is set to 1500 mb
I set Memory useage to System cache.
Is your dma set to on ?
Memory and # of drives usually isn't the reason for slow startup.
How slow is it ? My 2 take about 1 min.
