1- Turn off Auto RAM Virtualization:

1- Press Windows Key + S and enter advanced. Choose View advanced system settings from the menu.

2- When the System Properties window opens, click the Settings button in the Performance section.

3- Performance Options window will appear. Go to the Advanced tab and click on Change.

4- In the Virtual Memory window, uncheck Automatically manage paging file size for all drives option. Now select each drive on the list and choose No paging file option. Click OK to save changes.

Finally: After you make the necessary changes, restart your PC. Once your PC restarts, check if the problem still appears. If not, you can enable Automatically manage paging file size for all drives feature again. Several users reported this solution fixed the problem for them, so be sure to check it out.

2- Modify your registry:

1. Press Windows Key + R and enter Regedit. Press Enter or click OK.

2. Optional: Modifying the registry could be potentially dangerous, therefore it’s advised to create a backup before making any changes. To back up your registry, you just need to click on File > Export.

Now select All as Export range and set the desired file name. Choose a safe location and click on Save button.

If any problems occur after you modify your registry, you can easily restore it to the original state simply by running the file you just created.

3. In the left pane, navigate to the following: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

4. In the right pane, double-click the ClearPageFileAtShutdown DWORD to open its properties.

5. Set the Value data to 1 and click on OK.

6. Optional: Several users claim that you need to set Value data for ClearPageFileAtShutdown DWORD to 2 and save changes. After doing that, set the Value data for the same DWORD to 0 and save changes.

Once you make the necessary changes, shut down your PC and check if the issue still appears.

3- Use msconfig:

1. Press Windows Key + R and enter msconfig. Press Enter or click OK.

2. A system Configuration window will now appear. Navigate to the Boot tab and click on Advanced options.

3. Check the Maximum memory option and enter the amount you have in MB: 1 GB is 1024 MB, and since we have 4 GB RAM on our PC, that’s 4096 MB. For your PC, be sure to enter the correct amount of RAM in MB. After you’re done, click on OK.

Save changes and restart your PC and check if the issue still appears.

If the issue still appears, then do the following:
- Be sure that you’re using an official BIOS! Update your BIOS!
- Change your BIOS settings! Check if BIOS recognizes your RAM! Check if you have integrated graphics!
- Use the 64-bit version of Windows.
- Check if your RAM is compatible with your motherboard.
- Check if your RAM is properly seated.
- Check if your RAM is faulty.
- Rearrange your RAM modules.
