Since two days I have constant problems with my browser and laptop, as both crash pretty fast (every 30-45 minutes) and regularly, consistently. Now I don't think it is a browser issue, even though I use a Google Chrome deviant and not Google Chrome itself. But it is not the first time I use the browser intensely. Also today my laptop crashed while I tried to record a webcast.
Only then when my laptop restarted the "page file" settings popped-up! Otherwise I would have never noticed: They were set to 167 MB ?! I still don't know how that could happen, as I have 6 GB of RAM!
Browser: SRWare Iron v.16.0.950.0, based on Chromium / Google Chrome v.16
Laptop: Sony Vaio Z11Z9E/B
After I changed the pagefiles size (to 400 / 4000, see : http://i.stack.imgur.com/hmIjd.jpg), it still doesn't work and browser and laptop crash. Now I ran memtest86+ (v.4.20) and Windiag and exported all the browser extensions and their memory footprint (through "about:memory" : http://i.stack.imgur.com/y9Cm5.jpg) plus all the other information (through "about:net-internals") at http://pastebin.com/enQjWtbp. And the ProcessExplorer (v.15.11) task list: http://pastebin.com/qJQjK5w3. I want to mention that memtest86+ ( : http://i.stack.imgur.com/Us1ui.jpg) and windiag (: http://i.stack.imgur.com/TR1qL.jpg) did not find any RAM errors. So either my pagefile size is still screwed or I have to search in another direction. sysinfo file: http://tinypaste.com/5887026e
I want to add, recently (2 weeks), the "explorer.exe" freezes / crashes with every startup/restart of my laptop. (See: : http://i.stack.imgur.com/UaO2j.jpg) First I tried to "kill all processes" on it, but ProcessExplorer tells me it can't restart explorer.exe. Just for your information...
If anyone is expert on this topic, I'd appreciate if you could have a look in my logfiles! Sorry that part of the logfiles are in German. Ask Microsoft why...(or ask me to export and reupload them with another program.)
