Untick "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" if it is ticked.
Click the D: drive to select the drive. Put the dot in No paging file. Click Set. Click Yes if prompted. Click the C: drive to select the drive. Put the dot in System managed size. Click Set. Click OK.

Edit: if you are asked to restart your computer after completing the above steps, do so.

Only thing needed to be changed was the tick for automatically manage paging file size. Restarting now.

And it didn't make it to the full boot up :/. Though Im not sure if that was supposed to change anything or not.

Could a need of a defrag be a possible issue? I don't know exactly how but just doing some searching I have randomly some really really large amount of fragmented files.

You should defragment if your fragmentation is greater than 1 or 2%, and especially if it is greater than 5%. Also, you may want to run Disk Check with "Automatically fix file system errors" checked. If this does not resolve issues, run Disk Check with "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" checked.

Recommend running disk check before defragmenting. Bear in mind that disk check will take ~1-3 hours to recover bad sectors depending on your drive size if that option is needed.

Just an update. Running those Disk checks now. I ran a defrag last night for like 10 hours...I dont know how. But my drive had 34% fragmented on it...Now its at 5 which Ill run again later, but yeah. Also this morning i booted into normal fine however it did crash like a minute into it.

Like I said, just an update.

Thanks for the update. Sounds like you're going through the steps, so post back if you get hung up or need more help.

Alright just finished running everything. (outside of last defrag for that last 5%). System boots up fast and launched normal mode fine. However after I just let it sit to see what would happen. it was fine, then I started up skyrim again to push the system. It crashed after sitting for about 5 minutes.

Then I restarted, got to starting windows screen with the icon moving. Then it crashed and didnt boot up fully. :/

Basically same issues on crashing, just now the system is running faster.

It could be a heating issue with the graphics card. Install HWiNFO64 Download in sensor mode and use the logging to save a csv file with the temperatures. Once it blue screens, upload the csv file to the thread and I will take a look at your temperatures.

Also, take a look at the MEMORY.DMP file in Windows. Is it from today? If so, can you upload it to a file hosting site like rapidshare or megauploads for me to download it and take a look? If not, I can try to instruct you through the debugging process so we can get some info about what is causing these issues.

Got the program. Ill try to run it if I can manage to get into normal mode. (its not letting me now). Also memory.dmp should just be in minidump folder, yes? I havent actually been blue screening. The image always just kinda stays stuck on my monitor. I havent managed to get any BSOD data at all.

Booting into normal mode now. Its working now.
