Lately, I have been experiencing a slowdown on my computer. As any other person would do, I opened Task Manager and saw that a process called WMI Provider Host took 20-30%, of CPU. I tried to end the task but it continued to open up. I went into my anti-virus software and found nothing wrong. I looked into my Event Manager and got back to a .dll opening the script making WMI Provider Host open. the .dll is called cimwin.dll. That opens it and other Activity Transfers open it.
I'm using Windows 8.1 Pro 64 Bit. If I go to Control Panel/Windows Update/View Update History KB2919442 is shown as installed successfully on the 12 March 2014 "BUT" if I go to Control Panel/Windows Update/Installed Updates there is no KB2919442 listed.
If I download KB2919442 directly from Microsoft and try to install it manually it says "This update is not applicable to your computer"
I'm obviously having no success trying to install KB2919355 as it never shows as available in Windows Update and if I download it manually from Microsoft and try installing manually I get the same error message "This update is not applicable to your computer"
As of late ( 4-5 days ) I've been having issues, where Windows tells me, that I'm running low on memory, and it closes programs, I never had these problems before, my installataion is 6 days old, clean install, all updates downloaded and installed, programs I installed:
Firefox Steam Skype Origin Teamspeak
Code: Operating System Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit
CPU Intel Core i5 3570K @ 3.40GHz 28 C Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology
RAM 8,00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz (9-9-9-24)
Motherboard ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. P8Z77-I DELUXE (LGA1155) 27 C
I have windows 8 pro and when I start the store app it doesn't load and when I go back to desktop it says werfault.exe - application error the instruction at 0xf96ef417 referenced memory at 0xf96ef417 the memory could not be written click ok to terminate the program. idk why this is happening, could it be fixed with a registry scan?
I am having problems with my memory it has jumped to 89% and stays there. I tried to restart i looked at the processes it seems that non-paged tools is taking the most. I used RamMAP tool to find this problem.
Every time i open my notebook for example when i arrive at home,my notebook welcomes me with that error. but after this i can work on notebook , browse, and anything you can do without experiencing any error.
My notebook is: Acer aspire 5742G 4GB ram DDR3 Geforce GT540M (1GB) Intel Core i5 500GB HDD
I re-installed Windows 8 , everything worked fine until today I started having BSOD's saying I have "Memory Management" , "IRQL Not Less Or Equal" , "kernel security check failure" , "DPC Watchdog Violation", So... I attached the files from the Diagnostic Tool.
It started with AMD Catalyst Control Center starting to crash on boot, so I re-installed it and it works fine, but them Google Chrome starts to crash or just the extensions or open tabs
I have a new laptop windows 8.1 (64bit) 8gb RAM i7 processor which should be sufficient for the software I use. However on start-up my memory is already at around 80% and stays like that.
The most seems to be caused by servicehost (network restricted) (11) another program is IAStorDataSvc (32bits) even after i updated Intel Rapid Storage it still seems to take some memory. (My system settings are in Dutch but I guess it's pretty much the same as in English).
What could be the cause of the massive memory use?
When playing games on my laptop, i've been getting warnings that the game (Chivalry and Red Orchestra 2) Use to much memory and should be shut down. I have a Intel HD 4000 graphics and a Nvidia 720m cards in my laptop. Also with 8 GB's of RAM.
My computer was fine one day then, today when I was just browsing the internet it crashes. The computer restarts and then tells me there was a problem, then when I log in I get nothing but a black screen but my mouse can still move around. sometimes when starting up it takes me to the page and asks what to do. I tried refreshing the pc first and it did nothing. I then started it in safe mode and ran sfc /scannow on command prompt and it told me there were problems but it couldn't solve some of them it gave me something to look up but once again it crashed and restarted before I could read it.
I've had the computer for just over a year and it has always had windows 8.
I am dual booting my dell e6420, 8 gb ram. I have windows 8 on my HD and windows 8 on my ssd. Since I do live audio work, I keep the ssd system super clean. It doesn't get on the net, etc.
Recently windows prompted me to upgrade my hd os from 8 to 8.1, which I did. Since then, every few minutes, I get a popup saying I have Low disk space on my system reserved partition. It's 300 mb, which seems larger than most, but there is indeed only 1 mb free. But of course when I run disk cleanup, there is nothing that can be deleted!
It's now popping up about every 2 minutes. Very annoying.
I have 2 os's, do I even need the srp? But why on earth would it run out of memory? Maybe because of the dual boot? But I'd think they'd account for that.
should I expand the volume? That just seemed a little dangerous, and hopefully unnecessary.
I have a new laptop and am trying to work out the kinks
Its a new Windows 8.1 build. But seems to be causing all kinds of problems. And honestly i'm not sure where to start trying to fix it. I think its driver related but have tried updating a few drivers with varying success (as even this has led to some BSODs)
I Installed Windows 8 Pro on my PC and another Same PC of my brothers....
Both PCs are exactly same i.e. Compaq Presario SR1924IL except our RAMs and Hard Disk... He has 1.43 GB Ram and I have only 1 GB... He has 160 GB hard drive and again, I have 80 GB Hard Drive but when We installed Windows 8 Pro on our PCs the System Properties Are Different... We have Pentium D processor which in His Case is 2.80 GHz and in my case it's 2.67 GHz..
After I updated to windows 8.1 (from 8), windows explorer is taking up way more memory than it use to. Windows explorer would only use around 37 MB but now it uses almost 300 MB and it shows through poor computer performance. I have tried ending the process and restarting it but sometimes it works and other times it doesn't.
After spending hoursonline on these BSODs, I finally decided to spit the error out somewhere since BSOD can occur out of nowhere and situation is different for everybody.
My friend and I bought Asus N55 and N56VM on 27th Feb 2013 respectively. We both had Windows 7. Unfortunately, after a few updates, I got BSOD on the very first day. I've had Vaio F113fx/b before.
After days of trials on figuring out problem and experiencing BSODs 3-4 times a day on average, I planned to update to Windows 8. For the first 7-8 hours after install, it was clean and there were no BSODs but right after few games installations and updates, boom, had a BSOD on 'Memory Management 0x0000001a".
Therefore, I installed BlueScreen Viewer to find out what was causing these BSODs and same as before (in Windows 7), it's ntoskrnl.exe.
This pops up sometimes on the desktop after I power on
Your PC RAN into a problem: C:WindowsMinidump-40214-46000-01.dmp C:WindowsMEMORY.DMP C:UsersUserAppDataLocalTempWER-104406-0.sysdata.xml
It asked me to send details to windows and I sent. I don't know what's the problem and these are the only other problems I experienced: 1)Slower cold booting 2)It takes a longer time for the lights to off after shutting down. We can only turn the switch off after the lights off
Recent PC activities: 1) Defragmentation for OS(C) and Data(D) 2) Installed and played The Sims 3 (usage is around 9GB) with Mods 3) OS(C) Disk Cleanup deleted items: Downloaded Program files, Temporary Internet files and Temporary files (not sure if I deleted System Error Memory Dump Files & System Error Minidump Files or not)
I have recently installed fresh Windows 8 on my laptop - HP 6735b. Installation went smooth, it has installed all the drievers on his own, I just installed few more applications and within few days, problems appeared. I'm getting BSOD on startup, but sometimes it starts normaly and after few minutes/hours - BSOD appears.
I have high usage on my laptop lenovo g580 using windows 8. check task manager and I see cpu memory and disk fluctuating up and down to 3% can go up to 100 at times. When I open google chrome. Watch video or play games. I hear my fan turn on and i think my hard drive and i check task manager and i see the problem happening. I did a virus scan and searched everywhere online. I couldn't seem to find a solution. When I am not using the pc its a stable 3 percent but my memory is at 37 which i barely have anything installed but 1 game and a google chrome.
I recently just upgraded to windows 8 and notice that my media card reader is not working. My usb works fine but when I try putting in my memory card on the slot, nothing happens. Is there a program I have to download or a driver??
I'm trying to run MEMTEST86 to test some memory which I suspect is bad so I can RMA it. I have 2x kits of 8GB DDR3 memory. Since I put in the second kit my PC has randomly been rebooting with no onscreen errors. I took that 8GB kit out and now it doesn't reboot anymore. But in order to have it RMA'd Corsair requires me to provide Memtest results.
Anyway, my PC doesn't have an optical drive so I have used memtest's USB Boot installer thing to create a bootable USB stick and plugged that in.
I am running Windows 8 and an Asus P8Z77-M Pro motherboard.
When I go in the BIOS the USB drive is detected there, it is a Lexar drive. If I set my boot order to be USB -> then my SSD it doesn't boot from the USB at all, it just goes straight to booting into Windows.
If I just tap F8 whilst booting to manually choose what I want to boot from I see the Lexar USB stick in there but if I choose it I start to see that Windows 8 blue dot rotating loading thing, then it just freezes in place and nothing happens. Neither the USB or Windows boots at that point and I have to manually reboot the PC.
Something of note in order to get Windows to boot normally I can't specifically choose my SSD as the boot device, I have to choose the uhh..I think it's called Windows Boot Loader or something like that in the BIOS.
