Page File too small
Posted on 2001-06-30
Each time I boot I get this error-message in the 'Event Viewer': "Configuring the Page file for crash dump failed. Make sure there is a page file on the boot partition and that is large enough to contain all physical memory.".
When I turn off the computer the Windows 2000 closes but the backgroundcolor stays on and the chassis-fan keeps on going. I have to press the powerbutton ten seconds to really turn off the computer. Maybe the pagefile is corrupt and prevents the computer from exiting normally.
All this started after I managed my partitions with Partition Magic from within Windows 2000. Probably the cause of the corruption of the pagefile.
I can't seem to be able to fix the pagefile. I've read somewhere I should have an account 'SYSTEM' to manage the pagefile. When I try to add a 'SYSTEM' acount I get the message that account already exists. I don't know to much about Windows 2000 as you can see.
My final question is how can I get rid of the error-message in the 'Event Viewer' each time I boot and how can I make Windows 2000 exit normal (powering down my system) again.
