up to 512 is ok, after that you need the patch from microsoft, IU still cant figure how so many peoiple seem to think they need so much ram, now its really cheap people seem to think its required.
Next time you wave - use all your fingers
I was told that win98 can handle up to 512 megs but that it only really utilizes 128 efficiently. They said something about the rest being stored as cache or something. Anyone heard of this? thinking i should go with win2000 with this much ram. thanks for the help
Microsoft supposedly has made a fix to this, "Article Q256015" This is dealing with the good ole "Fatal Exception 0E" error. Here is part of this article:
Alternatively, if your computer has a large amount of memory (for example, 192 MB), the mouse pointer may be displayed as an hourglass over the taskbar and you may be unable to run additional programs. The computer eventually becomes unresponsive to mouse and keyboard input.
I believe MS gives us good tongue & cheek advise along with their micro-fixes. So, here a grain of salt.
