    Random BSOD no Memory.dmp being created, Pagefile not big enough


    I am getting a BSOD every 3 or so days seemingly randomly, but whenever they happen recovery screen gets stuck at 0% and freezes completely. No dump files gets generated. Before I can fix the BSOD I need to be able to get a dmp file. I have looked into windows not generating a memory.dmp which brought me to verifying my System failure settings were correct which they are Imgur: The magic of the Internet. However when I close that window I get this pop-up Imgur: The magic of the Internet . I then double check my pagefile settings which are you can see Imgur: The magic of the Internet . At this point I am pretty stuck

    Hi Nacho21 ,

    Welcome to the BSOD forum.

    1) Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    2) sfc /scannow
    3) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    4) chkdsk /scan
    5) wmic recoveros set autoreboot = false
    6) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    7) Make sure that there is no over clocking while troubleshooting.

    8) For Virtual Memory:
    a) check the box to automatically manage paging file size for all drives
    b) reboot to maintain settings

    9) For any BSOD:

    a) run the V2 log collector to collect new log files

    b) open file explorer> this PC > C: > in the right upper corner search for: C:\Windows\memory.dmp
    > if the file size is < 1.5 GB then zip > post a separate share link into the thread using one drive, drop box, or google drive

    10) update the specs in the "My Computer" section:

    System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums
    In the left corner below in your post you find 'My System Specs'.
    After clicking it you can find a link a little below that says 'Update your System Spec', click on this link to get to the page where you can fill in your system specs.
    System Info - See Your System Specs - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Include PSU. cooler, case, peripherals and anything attached to the computer by wired or wireless (mouse, keyboard, headset, printer, xbox, USB wireless network card, etc.)

    11) Find a flash drive that you can format (> or = 8 GB)

    12) Create a bootable Windows 10 iso:

    In options Startup and Recovery:
    Uncheck "Automatically restart" and "Overwrite any existing file"
    Select "Complete memory dump"
    Check "Disable automatic deletion of memory dumps when disk space is low"

    Most of us do not have ultra fast internet speeds.
    Complete memory dumps can be 4 to 16 GB and more.
    Please do not use complete memory dump and make sure automatic memory dump is selected.

    Full memory dumps would provide us with more information, but good. So be it

    Hey sorry for long reply, didn't have alot of time due to holiday. I set my pagefile manually to get rid of the popup saying my pagefile isn't 800mb or greater. I also did what MrPepka said In Startup and Recovery options. Hopefully this will allow a dumpfile to get created on my next BSOD. Once I get another BSOD I will update this post, until then not sure what else can be done without dump file. Here is the requested information below:

    To increase the likelihood of dump file formation please perform these steps:

    1) For Virtual Memory:
    a) check the box to automatically manage paging file size for all drives
    b) reboot to maintain settings

    2) For startup and recovery system failure:
    a) select automatic memory dump

    3) reboot to maintain the above settings

    4) Post new images of startup and recovery system failure and virtual memory windows after the above changes

    5) Find a flash drive that you can format (> or = 8 GB)

    6) Create a bootable Windows 10 iso:

    You do know this post will be lost after the server move right?

    You might want to copy it quickly to notepad or OneNote and repost after the server move
