    Hi RaduAvr,

    The recommended option is to let the system handle the pagefile, this way the system will ensure that enough virtual memory is present at all times :)
    For BSOD issues it is not recommended to turn off the pagefile, because the pagefile is used in the BSOD process for temporary storing the kernel memory before the system restarts. After the restart the system accesses the pagefile again to dump the kernel memory into an actual file (MEMORY.dmp).

    Hi axe0,

    Thank you for coming to my thread, love your work on the forum. :)

    Regarding having page file set to system managed, yes, that's what I've always had it set to. What I always do when I install Windows is disable the "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" option, and only turn it on for C: (my SSD and operating system drive), with "System managed" option.

    Now, here's the issue. When I choose "Automatic memory dump" in "Startup and recovery", I get this exact warning:

    "Windows might not be able to record details that could help identify system errors because your current paging file is disabled or less than 800 megabytes. Click OK to return to the Virtual Memory settings window, enable the paging file, and set the size to a value over 800 megabytes, or click Cancel to change your memory dump selection"

    Obviously, that makes me wonder if it's able to properly create the dump files under System managed, because it's giving me a warning. Or is this normal?

    Thank you :)

    Could you make a screenshot of the settings (virtual memory and recovery) and the error please.

    I would guess that the problem is the allocated memory, it is lower than the recommended size. Though I don't know if this really is the issue, because I've never seen it happening.

    I would suggest to enable 'Automatically manage paging file size for all drives' while troubleshooting, when your system is stable again we can deal with the error message :)

    Interesting. So, I enabled "Autoamtically manage paging file size for all drives" as you said and now I don't get that error anymore. I'm not sure I like this setting though, because from a performance standpoint having a page file only on the SSD is ideal as far as I know.

    I haven't done the RAM test yet (since it requires a lot of time), but I can say that so far I haven't received another BSOD.

    So, one question is: do I keep Driver Verifier on? Because it makes the experience a bit stuttery and I was wondering why I couldn't get 1 Gbps on Speedtest, but it was stuck around 300-600 Mbps with huge lag, until I turned it off of course. If it's still useful to keep it on, I will.

    The other question is: how exactly do I do the RAM test? Do I do 1 stick at a time, or both?

    Thank you once again, the both of you!

    Driver verifier checks every checked action all checked drivers are doing, by doing this performance can be very sluggisly as probably mentioned.

    How you do it is up to you, I would start with everything at once and if errors show switch to one per test.

    OK so I got one BSOD just now while I tried to run OCCT (I want to run it so I can do a GPU memtest, easier to do first than the RAM test). The reason why I want to do a GPU memtest is because I've been getting this kind of graphic corruption: graphic corruption warhammer - YouTube

    That makes me think it's a VRAM issue, and indeed on the Nvidia subreddit, that's what people assume is the issue as well.

    Anyway, as soon as I tried to launch the program, I got the BSOD. Restarted, then ran program and it didn't BSOD this time. Odd. Here are the files.

    In case it doesn't show what it said, during the error screen it said it was a "page fault in a non-paged area" and pointed to "cpuz x64" or something of the like.

    Likely from CPU-Z, the driver is very old.
    You may want to update CPU-Z to the newest version.
