I think I'm leaking memory?

#1BlueOverturePosted 12/20/2013 1:02:42 PM
Firstly I'm on windows 8.1 And this problem has only started a few days ago.

I have 8GB of RAM, 3570k and a 760

When I turn my PC on and start browsing the internet it's using around 20-25% RAM.

As the day goes on my RAM usage keeps going up and it all seems to be all going to non-paged pool. Neither task manager or rammap will show me what's using it all.

It will keep using up RAM until it hits 100% and then I have to hit the restart button. This process takes about 7 hours and doesn't seem to change depending on what I'm doing.

I've tried testing my RAM and running an antivirus and antimalware. They found nothing.

In the time from when I've started posting this to when I post it, usage has gone up by another 3%

Any ideas?

What motherboard are you using? I know if you have a Killer LAN adapter, it causes RAM usage to skyrocket to 95-99%.

Yep

The RAM is hardly ever the issue with memory leaks. It's quite often drivers. Try different drivers for your GTX760, and if that doesn't work make sure all your drivers are compatible with Windows 8.1.

Just to isolate, does the problem persist when using linux? If you don't have a dual-boot option set up yet, a live session will suffice for testing.

I'll check on the drivers. I upgraded to nvidias latest beta not too long ago. Around the same time that this problem started cropping up now that you mention it.

I don't have linux installed and I don't know how to do a live session. Although if my driver tests fail then it'll be next my test list.

I had something similar in windows 7 and that was superfetch eating up all my ram.

Try non beta drivers.....

Linux live sessions are easy, burn the disk, pop it in, restart, choose live session.
