mmk... with win2K SP4, i'm trying to change the paging file size from
768MB to 1GB, (the max size is already set at 1.5GB). when clicking on
'set', i get an instant reboot. screen stays black for like 5 secs then
i can hear at least one hard-drive spinng up again. back into win2K and
the paging file size hasn't changed from 768MB. i have dual PIIIs, 768MB
PC-100 ECC ram, two hard drives (pagefile on C). hard-disks check out
fine, ram cycle-checks are ok....

AND..... this reboot problem is happening on another Duron box with a
single hard drive, and 256MB of DDR ram....

yeah at a loss.

waaaa....

So the machine did a bugcheck and found MS Windows, so it rebooted? LOL
Lots of people here will call Windows a bug also

over to the video disk (D), it seems to be running ok...

It it also Win2k, and NTFS on the second machine by any chance? (same
bugcheck error?)

0x00000024 errors are usually NTFS errors, corruption or something. Try
running checkdisk and scan for bad sectors, (chkdsk /f /r)

Can it be done in safe mode? Im curious as i know your *suppose* to be able
to change swap files on the fly, but if you have little physical memory, and
the swap file is already heavily used maybe the kernel has a sad when the
size is changed?

Update SCSI or IDE drivers?

yeah both win2K installs are NTFS. i have run chkdsk on both machines,
it has to reboot to scan the system disk, but it finishes ok so i'm
guessing that means no bad sectors...

i will have a play with the second machine....

cheers
