Adjust Level 2 Cache setting

Windows XP tries to detect your level 2 cache during installation. However, sometimes it does not detect correctly, or you might have upgraded your processor.

This will help you change your L2 settings :

  1. Run Regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management
  2. Double-click SecondLevelDataCache DWORD value
  3. Change the value in the Value Data text box to a number that matches the size of your Level 2 cache.
    Level 2 cacheValue
    256 KB0
    512 KB200
    1024 KB400

That's all to it... You might need to restart before the changes will be applied.
