yea:/ already i can see my non paged pool climbing and not going down.
Hmm... Well like i said I'm using very similar drivers to you in regards to chipset etc and I have similar figures. Why did you start focusing on the non-paged pool memory? Have you been having any issues in this regard?
What does your resource monitor say? Here's mine for comparison:
Because previously my non paged pool would rise to something like 12gb. leaving me with only arnd 3 gb to work with and it would constantly crash my pc. and the hilarious part is that all i was doing is watching youtube.
I wonder if you have an app which has a memory leak? I did a little search on Firefox for example and apparently it can gobble up memory. Check out this page: How to Stop a Firefox Memory Leak | We Rock Your Web and this Firefox uses too much memory (RAM) - How to fix | Firefox Help I'm not exactly sure that it's Firefox that's at fault but could be worth checking?
alright ill give it a shot. but abck then when it came up to 12gb ram, you could add up the total amount of ram being used and it wouldnt hit that amount. Not sure if that is caused by ram leak too.
Ok bud, I'll be hitting the sack soon so will check back in the morning.
Aites!. Anyway, I've done as you suggested but even after i turn off Fire fox, the memory doesnt look like it is released. You can see that memory in use is 6GB, but is the resouce monitor, there isnt a particular program that is using up a huge amount of Ram. If it helps, I'm using: MSI Z97 gaming 5 Intel Core i7 - 4790k MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G Samsung SSD 8520EVO 2x 8gb Corsair vengeance 2400mhz
oh this is a old post i did. Big memory leak problem. - Windows 10 Forums
Hey, hmm.. your memory does look a little better tho, did you try rebooting once you'd disabled the browser? It is probably related to something your running rather than the os itself it's just a case of finding it.
I did a bunch more testing, first i unplugged my lan and ran a few games, no changes in non paged pool. when i plugged in my lan and did anything internet related, the non paged pool starts to rise, i plugged out my lan and switch to a wireless usb, and the non paged pool remains the same. I'm pretty? sure thats its cause of the killer network card. googling Z97 gaming 5 memory leak also yields quite alot of results, none of which conclusively pinpoints the problem though
A couple of links which may help you: Finding a Memory Leak (Windows Debuggers) How To Find And Stop A Memory Leak In Windows How big is your Pagefile?
is that the same as tthe non paged pool? if so ive seen it hit 10gb, if not, how do i check it ?
No. This guide will show you how to get there: Changing the size of virtual memory - Windows Help
i think this is it. P.s. i cant seem to find my crash logs on windows 10
just caught this
Thanks for the above. The reason you can't find any dump files is because you've turned off the Pagefile for the C drive. You need a pagefile of at least 200mb but in any case I'd change it so that your running the recommended amount. Why do you have a pagefile on the G drive? This could be why your seeing some odd figures in the Task manager.
Hmmm for some reason its not letting me set System managed size on C drive. it told me to restart and when i came back it was back to the default. and it just hit 100% memory usage and my com stopped responding
Okay nvm scratch that. i was a goof and didnt click set
Ok cool... How come you have a pagefile for the G drive?
