I have 4GB RAM installed. PAE is off. How do I tell the Windows 7 32-bit kernel to allocate 3GB virtual paging area to user mode and only 1GB to kernel space?
Start a command prompt with Administrative privileges (write
cmd in the Start search and right-click cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator). Write the command
bcdedit /set IncreaseUserVA 3072 This increases the user address space to 3GB and shrinks the kernel address space to 1GB.
Do take care: If you have a badly coded driver this change can cause it to crash.
