Re: filmscanners: LS4000 reboot problem



It's MS KB Q253912 at
http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q253/9/12.ASP

It's captioned "Out of Memory" error Messages with Large Amounts of RAM
Installed but it's the one.

| I don't know if you have already dealt with this problem, but ...
|
| There is a Win 98/98SE problem where the disk caching locks up the system
if
| you have more than 512MB of physical RAM. There's an article in the
| Microsoft Knowledge database somewhere.
| Their workarounds are if memory serves correct:
|
| 1) Use msconfig to set the machines maximum memory to 512MB in Windows.
| Quite a dumb solution if you ask me.
| 2) FIRST MAKE A BACKUP COPY OF "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM.INI" file then Edit
| C:\windows\system.ini and set a maximum file cache to less than 512MB -
I'd
| suggest something around the size of 16bit 4000dpi filescan which is
approx
| 108MB. So in the file "system.ini" look for the section marked [vcache]
add
| the following line for 108MB :
|
| MaxFileCache=110592
|
| This will leave your system.ini file looking like this:
|
| [vcache]
| MaxFileCache=110592
|
| The value after "MaxFileCache="  is 1024*n (where n is the number of MB
you
| wish to use as cache).
|
| Regards
|
| Steve
|
| P.S. Anyone running with limited memory (less than approx 3x scan_size)
you
| may wish to try setting MaxFileCache to quite a low value (16384 or 8192,
| perhaps). This will leave more memory to your photo-editting application
| which may help it to run more smoothly, unfortuantely it will also slow
| reading and saving large files. It depends what you find most
inconvenient.
|
| Right now I'd say memory is cheap (IMHO) and if your machine can take it,
| and you have the money, buy some more.
