Hi
I have the same problem with my dell xps (320 Gb HDD and 3 GB Ram).
The C Drive in HDD has 95 GB free storage.
But when I free more storage in C Drive, for about 10 GB, (now, I have 105 Gb free in C Drive),
The problem solves.
What's the reason to this problem?
It is very weird!

My mean is obvious!
I was working with my laptop, suddenly My Laptop crashed and went to bluescreen and restarted.
I went to BIOS, and under Memory section saw the following error:
"Due to an amount of memory being assigned for system use. Memory available is less than memory installed"
I restarted My Laptop and went to safe mode. looked at C drive free space. there was 95 GB of free space.
I removed some files and free more space (about 10 GB), and restart my Laptop and went to normal mode.

The Windows did not crash and I worked normally with it, and it seems that the problem is solved.
What's the reason of this problem ?


Hope to understand my mean.
Thanks

Memory and hard disk space are two different things.

I don't understand for sure either, but I'm going to take a guess and say by clearing HDD space you allocated more space for pagefile. How large is your pagefile set for? The pagefile setting does affect 'virtual memory'.

I don't think that's it Animal. He had 95Gb free, so the size of the pf would not be relevant - and the message he says he saw was in bios. Anyway, it doesn't seem there's a problem anymore (assuming there was one in the first place :) ).

Good catch. I have to agree with you.



Note to self: Keep browsers under 30 open tabs at a time, and less than 3 browsers open simultaneously. :wacko:
