Default virtual memory help

I have win xp pro 32 Bit and that meens it can only see 3 GB RAM.

And if I ad more it just wont see it I get this so if I incress my virtual memory will it use it???

I meen if I am at my limit with System Memory and it looks at virtual memory as Extra System memory then I would think it wont use it if it is at it's limit??

If you are really desperate, I suppose you could buy a ver small hard drive, and force your page file onto tht, just make sure the hard drive is internal, not external, only used for page file, and has a decent read/write speed

You realize that by definition, 32 bit OS only supports 3GB of RAM?

You need 64 bit for more to be detected.

if this is an issue, I would consider getting more RAM and a 64-bit S, but yes you can increase the size of the page file.

How on Earth do you have it maxxed? It normally increases itself.
