Hi again Bleeping Computer Community,
My comp's been running great until JUST recently, come to think of it I may reseat some SATA cables tomorrow morning, but for now insomnia is raging, and I have something I can't explain happening. The following is the message I get when clicking 'OK' to close out of System Properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery > Settings (I'm in here to try and figure out how I can get a .dmp file to review after my next random BSOD) after setting small memory dump, and small dump directory.
Windows might not be able to record details that could help identify system errors because your current paging file is disabled or less than megabytes. Click OK to return to the Virtual Memory settings window, enable the paging file, and set the size to a value over 1 megabytes, or click Cancel to change your memory dump selection.
I don't understand it, I have a Paging File of 2048MB set up on a 2nd HDD and all other possible Drives/Volumes set to None in this regards. I believe that my BSOD and freezing problem is related to this, but for IE9 acting a little stangely lately. Sometimes when I click a link on a web page it acts as though I clicked the 'Back' button on the browser. Also, after the Crash and/or Freeze, New Tab > Your Most Popular Sites in IE9 has lost it's memory and is effectively reset (although 'Reopen Last Session' works). Not the end of the world I know, but maybe a symptom that someone's heard of.
So, does reseating the SATA Cables for the 10th time sound right? I've run Memtest86+ as well as Windows 7 Memory Diagnostic, and no problems were reported. I can give any information about the system one might want :
AMD Athlon X3 435 Rana (I have not messed around with unlocking it)
4GB DDR3 RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 (Laughable ikr?)
PSU is Corsair 400W ATX
