I just checked my Event Viewer because I had a BSOD occur while my notebook was "sleeping". I keep it plugged in all the time and use it as a desktop because I have to be mobile right now. I have a HP 2711x monitor hooked up and with a Hauppauge WinTV-HVE adapter and Windows Media Center I watch TV and do some TV recordings. I use both the monitor on the notebook and the HP at the same time almost all of the time.
Over the course of the past 2 months I have gotten multiple entries (like over 1,400) in the Event Viewer of warnings, errors and critical events. All of the warnings are that the desktop window manager is experiencing heavy resource contention and some include "Video memory resources are over-utilized and there is thrashing happening as a result. Reducing number of running programs and open windows may help resolve this condition."
I have a Toshiba Satellite L650 with 4GB RAM with Windows 7 Home Edition 64 bit. It has an Intel Core i3 CPI M380@2.53GHz processor. It is a year old.
Do I need to be worried about all of these Events occuring? Am I just pushing it too hard or could there be a problem that needs to be addressed.
