Hi All,

 

I am using Windows 8 and have updated Gadgets for Windows 8. I shut my computer off 36 hours ago because of bad storms in the area. Since I have turned it back on my Gadget shows 0% in the Page file. The computer became unusable last night during a webcast and the only option I had was to turn it off.  How can I find out if I really am having a page file issue or a Gadget issue? 

 

Thanks.

 Go to the System applet of the Control Panel.  Click the Advanced tab -> Performance Settings button -> Advanced tab -> Virtual Memory Change button.  There you will see your paging settings.


Everyone with a computer should back his system up to an external hard drive regularly.  :thumbsup:

If you did a hard shutdown you should run sfc /scannow.

 

The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
 
To run sfc /scannow in Windows 8 you will need to open the Elevated Command Prompt.  The easiest way to do this is to press the Windows key and the X key at the same time.  A menu will open with the option Command Prompt (Admin), click on this.
 
You will see a window similar to the one below.

When the Elevated Command Prompt opens type in sfc /scannow (please note the space between sfc and /scannow), then press Enter.
 
If the scan finds no integrity  problems in the first portion of the scan it should stop, to be sure that the scan has stopped wait five minutes, then type in exit and press Enter to stop the scan.
 
If it does find integrity problems the scan will continue.  This will take a while, please have patience and allow it finish.  
 
When the scan is finished please post the log of this scan.
 
To find sfc /scannow log, type cmd in the Search programs and files box, 
 
cmd will appear above the search box under Apps., right click on it and choose Run as administrator, this will open the Elevated Command Prompt.  This will look simlare to the image below.

copy and paste the following, then press Enter.  
 
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt
 
This will place a new icon on the desktop titled sfcdetails.  Click on this to open the log, copy it and paste it in your topic.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
