    Paging File Size being set to none


    For the last several months, my PC has been suffering from various memory issues. Not returning from idle, low memory warnings, memory allocation warnings, slowness, sluggishness, etc.

    i decided to look into manually changing my paging file size and that is when i noticed that Windows is not managing the paging file size for my C drive; it is set to none.

    i found instructions on how to change this but things got more curious. The instructions say to use chkdsk Q: /R in repair mode command prompt. Oddly, rapair modes are no longer on my PC. i have tried restarting into advanced startup mode and half of what i remember used the be there, no longer is. Startup repair and system restore, for example, are no longer options.

    i am using Windows 10
    16GB of RAM
    SSD C drive
    Intel Core i7

    That suggests your Recovery partition has become disabled or in some manner unavailable.

    I suggest you start from basics, step by step:

    1. First check your disk(s):
    Download and run Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) (includes SSDs)
    (This gives exceptionally good text comments)
    Post a screenshot of its GUI using the Insert Image icon above your post.
    If all disks are reported as good, continue.

    2. Now check your file system:

    From an admin command or powershell prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

    or

    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.

    3. From an admin command or Powershell prompt run
    SFC /SCANNOW
    and report the result.


    4. Install and run Minitool Partition Wizard (free).
    Expand all columns as necessary so all text is visible.
    Post a screenshot of your partitions.

    What is your Windows build? Windows key + R, winver

    Please run this command from an admin command or Powershell prompt

    After completing the above steps:

    In the left lower corner search type: system or system control > open system control panel > on the left pane click advanced system settings
    a) > on the advanced tab under startup and recovery > click settings > post an image of the startup and recovery into the thread.
    b) > on the advanced tab under performance > click on settings > under performance options > click on the advanced tab > under virtual memory > click on change > post an image of the virtual memory tab into the thread
