Windows 7 Home Premium Stop Error 0x000000F4 and Paging File settings are not retained after reboot.

Within hours of getting started with a pre-installed Toshiba Satellite Laptop (L505-S5990), the Stop Error 0x000000F4 BlueScreen occured and after reboot, the Paging File control panel screen is automatically displayed.  The CPL shows that no pagefile is configured and that the system is NOT managing the pagefile.  Attempting the set the pagefile to automatic-system-mananged or manually to a fixed size on the sole physical volume is accepted, requests a reboot, but is not retained.  After every reboot, the pagefile CPL is displayed.

Hi Johnjohn01,

Welcome to Microsoft answers.

This might be an issue if the paging file is not setup properly on the computer, follow the steps below to setup the paging file:

1.      Right click on Computer.

2.      Click on Properties.

3.      Click on Advanced System Settings.

4.      Click on settings in Performance under Advanced Tab.

5.      Click on Advanced Tab in Performance Options Window.

6.      Click on Change.

7.      Uncheck “automatically manage Paging File size for all drives”.

8.      Select C:/drive.

9.      Select “System Managed Size”.

10.  Click Set.

11.  Click OK.

12.  Now restart the computer when it prompts for a restart.

If the issue still persists, then you may try Memory test, follow the steps below:

1.      Click Start.

2.      Type in Windows Memory Diagnostic in Start Search.

3.      Click on Restart now and check for problems.

This will fix any memory related issues on the computer, make sure save all the files before you perform this test.

If the issue still persists, then I suggest that you run virus scan on the computer and check.

You may also run online Virus scan from the link:
