    ok before getting a new hard drive and win xp i ran counter-strike perfectly fine with 64mb ram and p3 850 but since i got a new hard drive and win xp i cant play cs beacuse a message comes up after tri\ying to enter a game. "virtual memory minimum to low windows is increasing it during this time some apllication might not work

    I think that my memory is the prob since i know that xp needs alot but is that the problem and will bying more ram solve it

    These are the minimum requirements to run Windows XP

    PC with 300 megahertz (MHz) or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233-MHz minimum required;* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
    128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
    1.5 gigabyte (GB) of available hard disk space.*
    Super VGA (800 600) or higher resolution video adapter and monitor
    CD-ROM or DVD drive
    Keyboard and Microsoft Mouse or compatible pointing device

    I'm still using Windows Me, so I don't have much experience with XP, but I'm sure 256mb is the accepted figure to run XP.

    Yeah , windows xp has used up all your 64 mb of ram and basically cs won't run off your virtual memory cause its too slow.
    Just slot in another 256 mb of ram into your machine and cs should run fine...ram is so cheap atm as well ~ :bounce:

    Alternatively;
    save yourself some money and use the OS you had before.
    No need to throw money at the problem, XP is the fault.

    My rule of thumb is if it don't pull 1GHz and doesn't have at least 256MB of memory then 98SE is a more suitable os if installed properly than XP (waits for flames with fire extinguisher).

    I'd agree with that...switch back to Windows98 as you simply don't have enough memory to run games and applications smoothly on XP.

    Alternatively, if you want to stick with WinXP, go to Control Panel>System>Advanced>Performance Settings>Advanced, click the Change button at the bottom, and set a custom size of around 600MB min/max. You may need more than that, but try 600MB to start with. That will get rid of the error where Windows continually has to resize your swapfile.

    But even with all the candyeye turned off it would still have been painfully slow. :rolleyes2

    I didnt think it was too bad, but the main reason i used it was because 98SE always gave me all it could problemwise
