gpu crash Standby Memory Causes Crashes

4 posts in this topic

Dear Microsoft,

 

You know what's annoying? When you have 8GB of RAM, an i7 processor and 2x NVIDIA GPU's with an SSD... and your game or photoshop crashes BECAUSE YOU RAN OUT OF MEMORY. Opening task manager, only 3 GB used but 5 F***ng GB of memory is in standby. I know you're going to hit me bullshit about how it theoretically speeds up app opening for apps you're LIKELY to use, but what's the sense when THE APP YOU'RE 100% USING RIGHT NOW crashes because ohh, that program you have a 10% chance of using needs the memory more. I don't care how's it's SUPPOSED to work, IT DOESN'T FREE THE STANDBY MEMORY WHEN YOUR APP NEEDS RAM!!!  It doesn't work like you intended it to! It causes crashes!! Programs see FREE MEMORY ONLY and crash with out of memory errors because AN APP I USED A WEEK AGO IS in standby.

 

PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, BEFORE I GO INSANE, please, I want to DISABLE STANDBY MEMORY. I have an SSD. I will load the program when I launch it from disk. Give me the option to disable standby memory. Just put the feature in and see how many of us users will disable it. We are the free thinkers of the world. We don't use facebook/chrome and youtube exclusively all our life. 

 

 

 

 

Sincerely,

A frustrated gamer/programmer

Have got a similar hardware configuration — except for HDD instead of SSD and no GPU, at all.

 

I don't play games but have never had the issue with Photoshop as reported — have 2 different variants (portable and installed — both run fine.)

 

Have also deployed my mirror image to hundreds of client machines (mostly core i3 and a few core i5) with no such problem (even on games.)

I have an i7 with 12 GB Ram plus two SSD's and had a similar problem - what happened here was from sleep it would wake up and immediately reboot - I tracked it down to a problem with the Graphics Card (Nvidia) that had bad contacts in the socket on the Mobo - removed card, cleaned the card and socket contacts and no problems since .
