  • How to Configure Virtual Memory Usage On Windows 7?

    Share this page via:

    As you may already know, RAM memory (Random-access memory) is the fastest memory device where your CPU can write and read data. All programs use RAM memory and depending on the complexity of their tasks, they may be more or less RAM demanding. 

    RAM memory is managed by a running software and operation system, so it can’t be accessed directly like other storage devices such as SSD/HDD, Flash memory or DVD.

    No matter if you are playing a video-game, surfing internet, watching movie or using programs such as Photoshop or Microsoft Office, your RAM memory is constantly being exploited.

     

    What happens when you run out of RAM memory?

    Well this is the moment when virtual memory takes place. Virtual memory is the amount of memory which will be “borrowed” from a hard disk, to make it possible to continue working even if RAM memory is full. This is usually the moment when your computer slows down drastically, since writing/reading to the HDD is significantly slower. To avoid this kind of behavior, software is usually designed to preserve RAM memory as much as possible, using virtual memory for less prioritized processes.

    When using virtual memory, Windows is designed to put all the data in pagefile.sys file. So if you stumble upon this file in the root level of your HDD partition (usually C:), do not try to delete or move it since this file is protected and locked by Windows OS.

     

    Follow next steps to configure virtual memory usage for optimal working performances

    1. Go to  your start menu and type “advanced system settings” into the search field. Click on the search result saying View advanced system settings.

    2. Select Advanced tab under System Properties window and click Settings button under Performance area. Performance Options window will appear.

    3. Select Advanced tab and click on Change button under Virtual memory area. 

    4. Now you finally reached Virtual Memory window. All HDD and/or SSD partitions will be listed for you to choose where paging file (pagefile.sys) will be created. If selected partition belongs to SSD drive, it will perform much faster then HDD, but keep in mind that you should never drop below, at least 10gb of available space on selected drive. If the size of pagefile.sys exceeds the available disk space, running programs will probably hang or crash, sometimes even reporting memory related errors. If this happens, check the selected drive and try to free some space there. 

    Once you selected where paging file will be created, select System managed size and hit the Set button. After this, go through all other drives and choose No paging file, hitting Set button each time. This way you’ll have only one pagefile.sys file at selected location, which is the best option for optimal performance.

    5. Clicking OK button at the bottom of Virtual Memory window, and all other windows. Restart dialog will prompt saying “You must restart your computer to apply these changes”, select Restart Now and wait for your system to reboot.

  • How To Reinstall, Repair Or Uninstall DirectX (Windows 7)

    Share this page via:

    What is DirectX?

    Microsoft DirectX is the most important software when it comes to handling multimedia content in Windows Operating System. Video games depend on DirectX so heavily that even the smallest error or corrupted library within the DirectX Runtime Components may result in game crashes.

    DirectX related problems usually trigger error prompts at the beginning of the program’s execution, making it unavailable to run any further. To avoid these problems, make sure your DirectX version is always up to date.

     

    Whenever you install a new game, pay close attention to what installation has to offer because it will probably ask you to install/upgrade DirectX. You should always accept this, and if your version is already up to date, installer will skip the DirectX installation and finish installation normally.

     

    Reinstall, repair or delete DirectX

    Whatever you need to do with your local DirectX installation, it is certainly that you are trying to fix some errors or problems caused by damaged or deleted DirectX files. The best way to repair any DirectX related problem is to install the latest version from Microsoft official download site: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35

    Download a DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer (dxwebsetup.exe) to your local disk and run it. If it goes through the installation and finishes normally, it means that your previous version wasn’t up to date, and that should fix your problems. But if installation finishes saying:

    DirectX setup has determined that a newer or equivalent version of DirectX has been installed already. No installation is necessary.

    ,then you will have to trick the installer to overwrite your local version. This can be done by modifying a registry key where DirectX saves its version number. It is stored under:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\DirectX\Version

    Set the key value to 4.08.00.0904 and try running installer again. It will detect an older version and proceed with installation.

    If you don’t want to mass around with registry keys, you can simply download and run this file and it will modify DirectX version number for you: DirectX Version Number Modifier
