It can. Here's why. If you have Windows set to manage the pagefile automatically and there is low disk space, this message can happen.

"what are the negative effects of what i've done?"

Forensics are tough here. I can't find exactly what you've done. My thoughts are you need to set the paging file to LET WINDOWS DECIDE or try 2GB for now.
