Hello all - Recently "upgraded" from win 7 on my wife's sony vaio. This system has 4 gigs of ram but since the upgrade 2 or 3 weeks ago the system has crashed repeatedly, usually preceded by a msg saying "low memory". Anyone have a similar problem? Also, after the upgrade and doing a pc reset due to system crashes, all components used to access sony vaio support features were dumped.

  1. Open System by right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties.

  2. In the left pane, click Advanced system settings..

  3. On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.

  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory, click Change.

  5. Clear the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box.

  6. Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.

  7. Click Custom size, set it to the recommended size in initial (it will tell you recommend size )

I've seen windows automatically setting a small paging file  after upgrading, this is the easiest fix for that.

Thanks but I've tried that fix - it doesn't work for win 10.

Let's try looking at these reports:

1)  Please run this report collecting tool (even though you may not be reporting BSOD's) so we can provide a complete analysis:  http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location.
By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.

2)  Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on the "Administrative Events" heading
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504

It appears that internet explorer is where the problems arise. Have been using  microsoft edge for the past day or so and no more system crashes. I will definitely look into the reports as per your post - thx. Needless to say, since installing win 10 the touch pad no longer works, as well as some keys. In contact with sony vaio they say they can reinstall their components for $200 US which I think is a bit excessive. So much for sony compatibility.
