Ok i run a lot of stuff on my pc,and after a recent restart i have run 15+tabs in chrome,fraps(not recording),utorrent(for legal torrents),Vlc(running),steam,skype,HWMonitor,a chat program called raptr,task manager,teamspeak, and 2-3 folders open, and it only uses 3-4gb of my ram.
But if i leave my pc on for a while it will slowly use more of my ram over time,example has been 2 weeks since i have turned off my rig and i am running less stuff,and instead of using less ram, i am now using almost 7gb of my 8gb of ram,and i know once before the same thing happened,and it ended up using up so much ram,that i was unable to play any games cause windows would say i am running out of ram.
I know this never happened on my last rig.
Please help me find out the cause of it.
And please don't suggest to tun off my pc,cause i don't like turning off my rig cause i almost always have stuff that i am in the middle of,and i have having to find the point of a tv show/movie i was watching,and i don't want to bookmark everything i am working on,cause i already have to many bookmarks lol.
Ok my current rig is:
Case :CM HAF 932
Motherboard :ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
Video card :Sapphire 7970 reference card
Power supply:Cougar CMX 1000w
Processor :AMD FX-8150
CPU Cooler :CM Hyper 212+
Memory :2x4GB Crucial Ballistix DDR3 1600Mhz
and i am running 3 screens
My old rig is:
Case :Ultra E-Torque ATX Mid-Tower Case
Motherboard :XFX nForce 680i LT SLI
Video card :EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SE
Power supply:Ultra X-Pro 600w SLI Ready
Processor :Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad Q9450
CPU Cooler :CoolIT Systems Domino ALC
Memory :2x2GB Patriot Viper DDR2 1066MHz
I was only running one screen on this rig.
Yeah, I don't bother with AI Suite junk, I'd recommend uninstalling it normally first and seeing if it goes away. If not, try his instructions about manually disabling and/or removing those services.
Worse case, and I can't imagine how it would ever come to this, you can use that little VB script someone mentions in that thread. The script just restarts the service that's leaking memory.
He runs that script on a timer so the leaking service is regularly restarted, making the memory leak less of an issue. It's a kludge, but if for some reason you can't remove those services, it should work.
I like what one guy said there, and agree fully:
"AI Suite II is fun to play with, but it's like running speed tests: you'll do it all the time after you upgrade, but the fun fades after a while, and you'll eventually go back to using your computer for normal stuff."
