Here is what's up. I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with a Quad processor, 4 gigs of ram, 300gig hard drive. Page file set at 32 gigs and /3GB switch on. It is running XP Pro. I have only SolidWorks and Office installed. I use this computer only for solving Floworks calculations. I have a P4 system or design and such. When I run the batch solver with the 4 cpu selected in Floworks I continually get Memory errors, looking for such and such and only finding such and such. I am amazed on how fast the hard drive gets fragmented. What can I do to increase my capacity and to reduce the fragmentation? Would adding a second drive for the page file help? The CPUs have plenty of speed. They show 100% across the board when solving. I really rather not go to a 64 bit system. Simply put, Help
