NT Crash Dump Disabled


(system) #1
The virtual memory is set to 268MB which is the 12MB over the
physical as Microsoft recommends. The 268MB is a combination of 128MB
and 140MB for our logical C: and E: drives respectively. We increased
the physical memory in this server to 256MB a few months ago, never
made any setting changes, and never had a problem.

MS support says there is the possiblity NT encountered an unhandled
exception which is configured in the Startup/Shutdown tab of the
System Control Panel.(Article ID: Q216491) Also MS says if the file
appears to be set up correctly, I should delete the current settings
and create a new page file.(Article ID: Q242077)

I think I'm going to try a new page file tomorrow morning...any ideas?

We have Vantage 3 patch 32 running on an NT 4.0 SP4 server. This
error was received in the Event Viewer the last time we rebooted:

Erik,

When you open the control panel and go to System and choose the Performance
tab. What does it say your Virtual Memory size is?

Dunno... but this web site:

http://www.jsiinc.com/reghack.htm

Has a really great searchable archive of NT questions & answers, tips,
etc. Highly Recommended for anyone that has to muddle through NT !
