how to decrease RAM usage, tried everything but still the same
i just installed win 7 in my acer 2930.
it's look nice and fast installation.
but the problem is, when i play PES 2010, vram detected is only 64 mb.
i've try to upgrade the driver, but nothing change.
fyi, in XP, vram detected: 256 mb.
I spaced out the other night and shut off the power as my computer was shutting down.Everything else seems to be fine, but the minimize, tile, and close buttons in the upper right corner are enormous now. How do I make them smaller?View 5 Replies View Related
I have tried everything and exhausted my knowledge when it comes to hardware, my computer starting giving me random BSOD's, it only works in normal mode, and safe mode with networking for a short amount of time, but works perfectly fine in regular safe mode, I also let it sit in CMOS for about and hour without any reboot, I updated all my drivers which inherently has made things slightly worse (i.e BSOD's are more frequent) and it keeps spitting out different error codes the most recent one is the title and the only other one I can remember involved a "BAD_POOL_HEADER" or something along the lines of that? Also though I have manually backed up my data and have made Norton Ghost Images I would prefer not to reinstall unless someone knows how to restore just my files and programs but not the OS state. And I could not include a system health report as the Performance Logs & Alerts Service fails to run in safe mode but I have included my latest mini-dump files in the zip file attached.

Recently resolved for the second time however on an entirely different machine, an issue wherein Windows Update without any clues refuses to work -- the problem this time was fixed by uninstalling the Intel Matrix Storage Manager.The first time (again, on another machine altogether) it was fixed by installing the Intel Rapid Technology drivers.However now, I am unable to install the latter drivers (the installation throws a nebulous error message about my laptop (a Thinkpad T61p) being incompatible and exits).In other words -- I am unable to install both the Intel Matrix Storage Manager (which even is in the the "auto update software" driver list provided by my laptop manufacturer (Lenovo)) AND the Intel Rapid Technology software this time. will having none of these installed this have a notably negative impact on the performance of my system?View 6 Replies View Related
I have been at this for about 3-4 hours trying to decrease the boot time of my computer I was able to get it from 10 minutes down to 5-6.I biggest thing I noticed is the time between the Windows animated boot screen and the actually blue login screen just shows a black screen about about 2 minutes or so. Anything I can do to decrease this? Logs, etc?View 4 Replies View Related

This tutorial will show you how to increase or decrease the height of the Start Menu in Windows 7 without displaying recently opened programs and without displaying sub-menus. Many users would like to change the height of the Start Menu in Windows 7. There are many reasons for why a user would want this. My personal reason is so that all the programs in the All Programs list of the Start Menu will display without my having to scroll up and down the list. The problem is that the Start Menu is dynamic and, it would seem, cannot be manually sized. Two existing methods of changing the height of the Start Menu are to 1) display recently opened programs; and 2) display the sub-menus that appear on the right side of the Start Menu, such as Documents, Downloads, and Games. However, for those who would rather not display recently opened programs and not have some useless sub-menus displayed, a third, more flexible way exists, and this tutorial will cover that method.View 9 Replies View Related
I want to record Hedgewars, an open source 2D game. I discovered an open source alternative to fraps called Taksi. This seems like a very good option to use, but I cant play/record with it without encountering a significant amount of lag. The game itself though is virtually lagless. What is the best FPS rate/ settings for this, and is there anything else I can do to the computer to make it lag less?View 7 Replies View Related

I recently bought a new laptop and I installed Office 2007 on it (it had already been installed on other computers before). However, pressing Shift + Tab in Word doesn't decrease indent (It does so on PowerPoint). This does so on my other computers, and I assumed it was a default function in Word 2007. I tried to customize the keyboard shortcut for it, but Word wouldn't accept Tab as a suitable shortcut key (instead of registering Tab as part of the shortcut key combination, it performed the normal Tab function and went to the next gui object). Is there any way to fix this? I can live with it, since all I have to do is make a shortcut without Tab, or just simply click the respective buttons, but the Shift + Tab shortcut is ingrained in my memory and will be hard to unlearn, especially since any other computer I use with Word will use the default shortcut.View 5 Replies View Related
I have had my laptop for around a year now, and it's always been pretty fast for a cheapish laptop, It's an advent modena m100 in blue, but recently it has started getting real slow, like my CPU Usage is at 100% all the time and my Physical memory usage is running quite high aswell, without even having any programs open.View 5 Replies View Related
When I first boot up the machine and start using it (win 7 ultimate 64bit) the memory usage stays arround 40%. If I keep using it, the memory usage will slowly increase until it reaches 99%. If I boot up the machine and just leave it there for a couple of hours, the same happens.I try to restart (via windows), it logs off, shuts down the system, the coolers keep spinning, the motherboard lights are still on, but it doesn't boot up again. It remains like that. I have to restart via reset button or power button.View 15 Replies View Related

My Audiodg.exe process is currently using 2,786,070 kB (not just normal bytes, kilobytes) of Ram. 2.66gb+ of Ram! I have searched the web as well as this site for any problems. My audio is working fine though... I have no idea why this using so much ram. Im guessing a memory leak of some kind... I restartand it starts off at a normal pace...View 9 Replies View Related
Now that the whole "bitstory" is clear to me, I've got another question.
At the moment I've got a Windows Vista 32 bit version and 4 GB of RAM.
32 bit Windows 7 requires at least 1 GB of RAM, but can only use around 3.5 RAM.
64 bit Windows 7 requires at least 2 GB of RAM, but can use larger amounts of RAM.
Now whats best for me?
Buy a 64 version so I can use my full amount of RAM (but loose 2GB for the OS)
or just upgrade to a 32 bit version, neglecting the 0.5 RAM that Windows cant use?
(how much RAM does Windows 7 (32/64) use in an idle situation?)
When I turn on or restart my PC after everything is loaded the task manager says I'm using 25% of my Ram. After two or three days my ram usage goes up to 50% while just sitting there.
It never really goes up past 50-55% but I want to know why it starts at 25% and then goes to 50%.
Ok so my computer is acting up , at first i thought it was a ram issue , but when i am only use 1 gb of ram ( i have 2 gb) my cpu usage goes to 100 then drops to 30 then back to 60 and so on , even on start up it goes to around 50% without anything opened. So i tick the show all process on my task manger and i see alot of svchost , more than 6 running, should i be worried, i heard some of them could be a virus and i also MsMpeng.exe running and it uses 50,000 usage, it uses more memory than google chrome. both svchost and MsMpeng.exe worries me , iknow svchost is safe but it also good be a virus.View 5 Replies View Related
is there a reason why when i run a programe like antivirus scan or adaware my cpu dosent use all of its capabilities to speed up the scanning process?
for instance with firefox, adaware scanning and what ever progs are in the back ground running my cpu usage is still at a steady 5%, why isnt that upto say 70% so the scan will be done a lot quicker?
My Windows 7 laptop has recently been through about a half-dozen supposed "fixes" to malware and registry repairs. It is still running high CPU cycles. How can I fix it (preferably without paying for anything)? I have AVG and will purchase their PC TuneUp when I get a chance, and I just bought SpeedyPC earlier tonight.So, I don't want to spend more money. I have tried Spybot, Malwarebytes, and another one (can't remember).View 4 Replies View Related
A month or so ago my computer was fine. Gradually, slowly RAM usage has been going up. I used to be able to run multiple aps at once, no problem. Computer has gradually slowed more and more. Can't run more than a couple aps at once without it slowing to the point it is useless. At start up with no aps launched RAM usage is 83+%. What is going on now that was not a couple months ago? I have poked around in Task Manager but do not really understand what I am seeing there. Windows 7. I updated to IE 9. I have Norton Internet Security. I have run Malwarebytes, Smart Defrag 2 and Advanced SystemCare 4.View 14 Replies View Related

I recently purchased a small laptop (ASUS X43U increased RAM 4GB) and only in the past 2 weeks or so the CPU usage has been fluctuating up to 100% and as low as 4% ish. The computer is making this horrible noise all the time (I've been told its the cooling fan..) and is driving me insane. I have a fully up to date antivirus software, no games or additives installed, and really only ever have 1 or 2 windows of Google Chrome open at one time.View 5 Replies View Related

am using HP G42-458 TU(launched for india..)
Specs : win7 homebasic 64 bit 4gb ram, 500 gb hdd corei3... for few months my cpu usage rocks to 100% with minimal usage.. i thought it is heating issue.. cleaned fan. it helped only for few weeks then i would just kill process tree from which have high usage from task manager.
this problem happens everytime.. had tried hp recovery, system restore to prev time. factory reset.
I don't know if I'm just overthinking/worrying too much about my laptop, but my CPU usage lately seems to idle between 10 and 30% even when I'm not doing much. I've noticed that TeaTimer.exe (Spybots real time protection) seems to hog some of this, and I'm not sure if I need it since I have Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware installed. I've also noticed Firefox to be very laggy but this could well be a seperate issue. Also on startup my computer does seem to take up to five minutes to settle down after logging in.What can I do or what should I be checking?

Recently installed the 64 bit Windows 7 beta, and my CPU usage is constantly at or near 100%, even with no external programs running. Just to give a quick run-down of my system, I have:-- AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Processor (2.2 GHz)-- 2GB DDR RAM-- 1GB Diamond Radeon 3650HD Video CardThe rest of my setup is a basic desktop machine -- plenty of storage space, etc. It runs XP Professional (32-bit) just fine. I installed the Vista x64 driver for my video card last night; it installed successfully, but did not seem to help much.View 9 Replies View Related
I have installed SharePoint 2010 on my Windows 7 laptop, and it works fine. But all the services that are installed will always start and use a lot of resources, even when I don't use the application.
It is possible to only start all the involved services (like SQL Server, IIS etc.) when I tell it to or to only have them start when I log on with a special user account?

I always wondering why did I have low fps in game until I restart my laptop. After installing MSI Afterburner, I realize that when I turn on my laptop, my GPU won't pass 70% in game(that means low fps). Restart fix the problem(95% all the time and no fps drop), but I didn't want to restart everytime I turn on my laptop. This is not random and happen all the time when I turn on my computer for the first time.
GT 520M 1GB
p.s : Nvidia driver is the latest version, I tried reinstall/rollback new/old driver but it didn't fix the problem.
I Downloaded windows Windows 7 and i like it but it use so much of the ram.
I have 2 Gb of ram and i only use msn, AVG antivirus program and the internet and it use 740 mb of the ram, this is 32-bit.
if i use Windows vista ultimate 64-bit and use the same program then i use about 700-800 mb of the ram..
I'm on the RTM build (one of the custom "touched" builds) and I've noticed that my RAM usage seems to rise the longer I'm on.
For instance: Yesterday I came home from work and started my machine. After startup the RAM was at around 27% just idling. I then checked my mails, looked at various news sites, and then browsed this forum, all the while playing music through Winamp.
At this point my RAM was around 31% which seems fine as I was doing various things at once.
I then closed Firefox and , leaving Winamp playing music (no visualization), sat back in my chair to read the newspaper.
After about an hour of this I returned to the pc to put on some different music and my RAM is at 40%!
After another hour or so it was at 42%.
It's not Winamp related or music related as I noticed the same thing the other day when I had literally closed all major apps and just had the desktop up.
So it just seems that it is length of time related.
