Bad memory?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have Corsair XMS3 1600 2x4GB, so it's two 4gb modules

If I have several tabs open in Chrome then they take 1.3-1.8gb and 52% of the 8gb is used, If I play Crysis2 this popup appears:
Untitled.png
Closing Chrome puts the memory usage at around 30% I can then play Crysis 2 without popup from windows 7.

I had pagefile.sys 3.2gb and hiberfile.sys 8gb, now I removed hiber and put pagefile to 8GB...
OS is Windows 64 ultimate and SSD C300 64gb Crucial now 8gb pagefile and now there is 8gb free space on the SSD.

If that is how your system is configured. you should be fine. There may be other problems within your system.

perhaps something with a memory leak, or some kind of malware.


I do remember seeing this message on a client machine, we couldn't find the issue, turns out there was a hidden service running F@H eating up all of her RAM but not reporting it.


This is on a 71 year old womans laptop.

Yeah maybe some malware.

I was logging with Hwinfo64 + 2instances of GPU-Z, now I briefly tried Crysis 2 without logging and having swapfile.sys at 8gb seems to atleast now once solved my problem.

Maybe I should run memtest86, however I do have a feeling this is software related...

If you think you have malware then use MBAM and allow it to scan and see what it finds. Make sure you update it and do a full scan.

Why not just download memtest86+ and run it to test your ram? Thanks

Just download Hirens boot disk, It has Hirens, memtest, lots of recovery tools... etc. Really recommend it as a good beginners toolkit to working with computers.
