Windows 10: Resource Exhaustion (VM issue) on new W10 Install

    Resource Exhaustion (VM issue) on new W10 Install


    Can anyone please help me with the following?

    Upgraded an 8.1 install to W10 and since have been having issues with virtual memory / resource errors. This normally requires the closure of all apps / progs but this morning the PC shut down as a result.

    On checking eventvwr I uncovered the following:

Views:	22 
Size:	443.0 KB 
ID:	28826

    Now as far as I can see the VM settings are fine. This is a reasonably capable desktop running 6GB ram that suffered no such issues under W8.1.

    Any ideas appreciated as this is the other half's PC I upgraded for her and it's not gone down well!

    Mods: Hope this is in the right place not being a BSOD issue - please move accordingly if not

    Happened again today and I noticed at the time there was >3GB physical Ram still available!

    Something screwy happening...

    According to your screenshot, it looks like you had at least 200GB of virtual memory allocated, which is quite a lot. You might want to do a clean install.

    Resource Exhaustion (VM issue) on new W10 Install


    200 Gb? Where is that showing?

    I've tweaked the VM settings but still seeing issues. Just caught it mid slow down and discovered this:

    That process running up > 2.5gb memory is Facebook running in Edge. Is this the cause, and if so why? Just keeps climbing until things crash.

Windows 10 resource usage in Installation and Upgrade
One of the good things is the small footprint of Windows 10. In my installation it uses only 8.5GB on the C partition and less than 500MB of RAM. I am sure that willl grow somewhat with the RTM edition, but it is a good start. 72517252
