Hello,
My computer is crashing several times a day. It started a few weeks ago only once every few days and it has increased rapidly since. I thought that it was something I was doing always. But for the last few days it crashes even when no one is using it. And every morning it is at the welcome screen. It skips the BSOD and goes straight to restart every time.

Help!

Hi -

One reason for no BSOD dumps is your page file. The allocated base size of the page file on the OS drive must be > installed physical RAM.

System files show 8 GB RAM, yet page file base allocation - 6142 MB
Code:
AllocatedBaseSize=6142
Caption=C:\pagefile.sys
CurrentUsage=58
Description=C:\pagefile.sys
InstallDate=20110816051704.747237-420
Name=C:\pagefile.sys
PeakUsage=58
Status=
TempPageFile=FALSE
 
 
AllocatedBaseSize=6142
Caption=Z:\pagefile.sys
CurrentUsage=60
Description=Z:\pagefile.sys
InstallDate=20120912100820.990056-420
Name=Z:\pagefile.sys
PeakUsage=60
Status=
TempPageFile=FALSE
 
 
Caption=c:\ 'pagefile.sys'
Description='pagefile.sys' @ c:\
InitialSize=6142
MaximumSize=15000
Name=c:\pagefile.sys
SettingID=pagefile.sys @ c:
 
 
Caption=z:\ 'pagefile.sys'
Description='pagefile.sys' @ z:\
InitialSize=6142
MaximumSize=15000
Name=z:\pagefile.sys
SettingID=pagefile.sys @ z:
Any reason for the page file on drive z: ?

Re-allocate the page file on OS drive c: - use "system managed" settings.

Also check system crash options -- should be set to "Kernel Memory Dump" which will result in a full kernel dump + a minidump upon BSOD.

Please see - NO KERNEL MEMORY DUMP FILES BEING PRODUCED UPON BSOD?

Regards. . .
