Close. It's \0 you would have used but Christian's answer is even shorter.

This might be heat related. Did you already cleaned the inside of the computer? If not, open the computer and use compressed air to remove all dust (and go outside to do the cleaning).

comment SELECT LINE mode in vim
+1 The documentation is great... if you know how to search. I couldn't find it using :helpgrep or plain help and I would never have tried v_ctrl-g so thanks romainl for yet another trick.

comment How to detect who is consuming permanently space on Hard Disk
In the old days, it was recommended to set the pagefile to a fixed value (double the size of your memory). Today, I really don't bother with that anymore. As soon as I notice the pagefile getting used to much, I either don't have enough memory and add some or an application is misbehaving and I'll try to track that down and remove or fix (update) it.

comment How to detect who is consuming permanently space on Hard Disk
If it's using the pagefile that much I would recommend adding more memory. Note that you could track what files get written by using a tool like ProcMon from Sysinternals. That way you can verify it really is Pagefile.sys or some other file(s).
