I've a 10+ year old XP PC which surprisingly still works however one of the 256MB RAM finally died. Now I am left with just 256MB. As expected the PC became slower however when I tried to increase the page file to min 4GB max 4GB it become quite fast again to an acceptable level. My question now are:
Will it help if I buy more RAM since the current performance is already acceptable, will it be even faster?
Will just having 256MB RAM but 4GB page file have some implications (maybe the HDD is being pounded or something)?
