Boost your RAM for improved performance!!

Recommended Posts

Fine tune your system memory:

These Settings will fine tune your system's memory management - (At least 256MB of RAM recommended!)(Remember to back up your Registry!):

Go to Start>Run. Type in regedit

Navigate to the following key:

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

 

1.DisablePagingExecutive: Double-click it and change the decimal to a 1. This allows XP to keep data in memory now instead of paging sections of ram to the hard drive. This yields faster performance.

 

2.LargeSystemCache: Double-click it and change the decimal to a 1. This allows the XP kernel to run in memory. This helps to improve system performance ALOT!

 

3. Right-click on the right-hand side of the Registry Editor. Create a new dword and name it IOPageLockLimit. Double-click it and set the value in hex to 4000 if you have 128MB of RAM. Set it to 10000 if you have 256MB. Set it to 40000 if you have more than 512MB of RAM. This tweak will speed up your disk cache.

 

Reboot your machine. Notice the difference?
