    How to change virtual memory on systems with different RAM via script?


    I have Win10 ENT 1809 systems with 8GB of RAM and now 16GB of RAM. How can I change the virtual memory via a script that reads the RAM amount and changes accordingly ? The WIM virtual memory is set for 8GB 12288/24576 and 16GB machines needs to be set at 24576/49152. I just need a script I can run in a task sequence after image deployment. Using MDT. HELP.

    :)

  2. Turn of Virtual memory?

    I´ve done some benches and there is no difference
    My theory is, that the system do not use pageing when there is enough memory available..?

    (there is an old thread inhere somewhere, about this subject.)

    Turn of Virtual memory?

    if you google it , lots of litrature suggest turning of Page file (virtual memory) if you have enough RAM for example like i have 4GB with Win XP and have almost 1 GB reserve.

    They claim that because the CPU can acess the RAM faster than it can acess the virtual memory in the hrd disk your system will be faster.

    What do you guys think?

    Issues with total memory size of dedicated available RAM

    Hello Gevorg,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community an we regret for the inconvenience.

    From the description provided, I understand that the motherboard you are using has 4 DIMM slots which supports up to 8 GB of dedicated RAM.

    To be able to understand the issue better. let us know how are you viewing the total memory size of dedicated available RAM in your PC.

    Now, in one case, if you are using more than one module of RAM, and the frequencies at which they operate are not the same. There will be two outcomes:

    • The modules will conflict in terms of DIMM frequencies and it will declare memory failure.
    • Instead of downclocking one or more RAM/s, the motherboard will reject the ones from being accepted.

    In order to ascertain if the hardware is correctly configured, I suggest you to check the system information in the BIOS settings. Refer to the manufacturer provided manual to know more about on how to access the BIOS settings.

    In another scenario, your computer may also be allocating part of your RAM to other hardware modules, such as your network hardware.

    As a secondary workout, I suggest you to increase the Virtual Memory and check if it helps. Follow the steps below.


    • Click Windows key + R to open the RUN command utility and type
      msconfig.exe, then press ENTER.

    • Click on Boot option and select advanced options.

    • Check the maximum memory box and change the value accordingly.

    • Click on Apply and Ok to save changes and click Restart the computer.

    Hope the above information is helpful.

    Thank You.
