    Hello. i'm new here.

    my Com specs :

    Geforce 7800 GT 256mb
    Lanparty UT SLI-DR motherboard
    Pc 4400 1 gig ram
    Amd athlon 64 x2 dualcore 3800+

    ok. u see i'm currently using windows xp 32 bit
    and i'm encoutering a huge problem. this computer is only 2 weeks old

    u see. whenever i leave a program on for more then 30 mins. it'll eat
    up 200 000 K - 300 000 K memory usage. why is this so? everytime i play
    game half way it LAGS VERY FAST.. and i must reboot to make it work
    again. its like ihave to reboot every 30 mins. can anyone explain why?
    must i change to a windows x64 bit?

    i've tried scanning with alot of stuff like hijackthis and stuff. i
    reformatted 7 times already. still encoutering the same problem !!

  2. I am thinking, perhaps you need to get a BIOS update to have it conform to
    the Dual-Core? Or you need a processor driver? I cannot be more specific - I
    have no experience with the Dual-Core's - but these are some of the mishaps
    that keeps creeping up here. Search the involved 'sites', (Motherboard,
    Chipset, AMD) to see if they have something you don't.

  3. A BIOS update might be in order, especially if the cpu is an upgrade for
    this board. AMD does provide a cpu driver for the dual core cpu's. The
    symptoms described are very unusual, however. Without knowing what resident
    programs are running (I suspect a P2P file sharing client would do what is
    described) who can say what is going on.

    Open Task Manager (CTRL-ALT-DEL) and have a look in the "Processes" tab. How
    many processes are running when this is going on? Can you see any processes
    in the list that you are not aware are running? What else have you installed
    on this machine application wise?

    I take it that GW.EXE is your game yes? If not, what is it? It's difficult
    to pin anything down from your picture...

    GW.EXE is taking 54% of one of your processors but not both...

    Don't know what your pictures are since they don't load, but the amount of
    memory you list is only a fraction of your ram so I see no reason you should
    have a problem especially in light of what the Collins' have said. Doesn't
    appear to be ram or cpu. What happens to your pagefile during the half
    hour. Where does it start and how much does it grow.

    I think you are missing my point.... (try this link John and the image will
    load http://img465.imageshack.us/img465/1528/example7rc.gif )

    It is your game that is gulping down 51% of the total CPU time whilst IE is
    only taking a massive 2%... (perhaps your game doesn't run so well in
    WOW64?)

    The fact that IE is taking up 222,803K of memory will not, in itself, cause
    your machine to slow down. However, why have you got IE open in the first
    place and what sort of page do you have loaded that is eating so much
    memory? Try closing each of those instances of IE down and then see how it
    goes??

  12. Thank you for that link - I got nothing but add's myself. And I agree about
    closing down IE, but could this be an on-line game with a bad connection? Or
    a misconfiguration of such a connection?

    oh. i was checking some map stuff with my IE. even if i dont open my GW
    FILE. it'll still eat up 200 000K +. well everytime when it hits 200
    000k+ memory. i surely have to restart regardless of what program is
    on. becuz when one of my program eats 200 000K+ ANY PROGRAM i open
    later on. will have the same effect and causes my com to lag like hell
    :/

    You are =still= missing my point...

    A single instance of IE with a basic web page open takes up roughly 26Mb of
    memory for its running process.

    I noticed in the image that the taskbar button showed you had IE open to
    some page related to your game and it seemed to be opening a LARGE data file
    as a web page. =That= is why your IE is using up 200Mb! Do you really need
    that page open while you are playing the game?

    Try something for me, have your task manager open with NO copies of IE
    running. Now click on this link http://www.bbc.co.uk and tell me how much
    memory the single instance of IE that opens up takes?

  15. Hmmm. . .I've never heard of such a thing - I wonder if you wouldn't just
    bite the bullet, reformat and re-install from scratch, if you was me?

    The thing that I cannot get over is that, although it shouldn't lose that
    amount of memory at all, it is not (should not be) a disastrous amount of
    memory to lose to a process, it shouldn't affect the system so severely.

    How many 'Services' (roughly) is running concurrently on your system?

    Guess you aren't going to answer about your pagefile.
    I personally have 21-30 IE open when I am working and they range from 22K to
    61K to start but none of mine grow past about 100K

    Yikes! Do you mean you clicked on the cleaned up link (that was yours
    originally...) that I posted for John to see the page?

    If that is what is happening then something is running on your system that
    you don't know about....

    What about that http://db.gamefaqs.... button that is on your taskbar in the
    screen shot? What is that?
