Performance Settings and pagefile.sys Should be Investigated after Upgrading RAM on Windows

After upgrading the RAM on your Windows XP or Windows Vista computer (laptops and desktops) you should review your performance settings. The primary concern will be your pagefile.sys size to make sure it matches or exceeds the amount of RAM you have in the computer. For those of us that are familiar with Linux more so than Windows the pagefile is also called the swap file in Windows. The pagefile or swap file is used for anything that won’t fit into RAM so technically it is an overflow for RAM so the excess has somewhere to go.

Canon ImageRunner Error Code Reset

These are the steps to resetting error codes on the iR5570/iR6570 and other ImageRunner printers. This also refers to eCopy, so follow the additional steps if you have the eCopy setup. The most common errors that I get are from power outages, sometimes after an outage the printer will not reboot correctly and will be stuck with an error message.
