In just the last day or two, when booting up I'm getting the message that my system has no paging file or that the paging file is too small. Occasionally I don't receive the message, but the system hangs at the "welcome" screen. But by hitting Ctrl-Alt-Del to get into the Task Manager when this happens, the system continues to boot as normal. Once the system boots up it runs fine, with no problems.
I've gone through the steps to address this. Namely:
Start Menu - Right Click My Computer - Properties - Advanced - Performance - Advanced - Virtual Memory - Change
I've adjusted the settings to both customized with an initial size of 1533MB and a maximum of 4000MB (the recommended size is 1533 for my system) - I've also tried setting it to system managed. However, even after clicking SET, and OK, and the rebooting for the change to take effect, I get the same paging file error when booting up.
I haven't done anything to my system in the last three weeks (installed new software, hardware, etc.) which would bring about this error as far as I know. My Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware programs haven't reported any problems, and drive space for the paging file doesn't seem to be an issue (9 free gigs on the root partition, 56 free gigs on the storage partition - did try setting the paging file up on the storage partition, but same result as above).
Any suggestions? Your help is appreciated.
