  1. PC wont boot after i set a paging file of 5000mb - 10000mb on both drives


    I was trying to increase my vram so i added a paging file of 5000 mb- 10000mb to my C: Drive and bumped the size of my E: Drive from 3000mb - 5000mb to 5000mb - 10000mb. Since doing that 1 of 6 things happen when I attempt to boot up my PC. I have a MSI Motherboard.

    1. The PC Turns on for about 7 seconds and turns off

    2. PC goes into bios loading screen and then screen goes black

    3. PC Boots up and on the bios loading screen it just says "Please Wait"

    4. PC Boots up and bios loading screen says "Preparing Automatic Repair"

    5. PC boots into login screen and when I log in after it says welcome black screen and power to keypoard, mouse etc stop.

    6. I am able to log and the desktop is shown for 2s then the blue screen saying windows has to restart your PC happens


    And for #6 when i saw my desktop all my files were gone.

    :)

    Page File

    Set minimum and maximum to a constant number as suggested by others, that will help reduce fragmentation on the drive coz of different page file sizing.

    How do I resolve the error message: Windows created a temporary paging file on your computer

    I booted my machine, and suddenly got this pop-up:

    When I close the pop-up, I see the Performance dialog saying Total paging file size for all drives: 0 MB. I've never changed pagefile settings, and the Change... button shows that it's set to Automatically manage paging file size for all drives.

    I've tried to set to the different settings belowand reboot, but always got the same popup:

    1. Select drive, set to system manage size
    2. Select drive, set to No paging file
    3. Custom size: Initial: 5000MB, Maximum: 10000MB

    This answers.microsoft.com post suggests I:

    • Disable pagefile - Even if I do, I get the same pop-up
    • Delete c:\pagefile.sys - can't get deleted
    • Set partition pagefile attribute using DISKPART - but HELP ATTRIBUTES DISK says READONLY is currently the only disk flag that may be changed.

    Specs

    • Machine: Lenovo X230, 16GB RAM
    • Disk: Samsung Evo 850, formatted as a single C: drive.
    • OS: Windows 10 (version 1511) 64-bit

    PC wont boot after i set a paging file of 5000mb - 10000mb on both drives

    Low performance after setting the paging file

    Ok, I ll check what happen.

    EDIT:
    Nothing happened.... the bios didnt post.

    The paging file is not my cocern now because I have a new HDD with a fresh OS.
