    Crashes, Low memory Warnings after changing Virtual Memory settings


    I've been experiencing sluggish performance, browsers were laggy and non responsive after having many tabs.

    I found that the solution to improve performance was to change Virtual Memory values and disable "paging file size" for all drives.

    Now the computer performance is amazing, everything responds properly but now I'm getting error messages of low memory and getting crashes. A few minutes ago the computer crashed to a black screeen.

    Here are the values I have right now in Virtual Memory, what else should I do to stop these crashes? I already tried a few different values but the problem still persists.

    Any suggestions?

    Proccessor AMD 6300

    GPU Ati Radeon 7790

    8GB DDR3

    Motherboard ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970

    Have you tried to work out what is using your RAM?

    Most days I open 20+ tabs at once once in the day in Firefox, and performance is fine- I've made no changes to paging.

    Check Task manager for RAM usage. Also Performance > Memory.
