  1. Desktop Window Manager's memory increases without limit


    As long as I run my computer, Desktop Window Manager increases how much memory it uses. I hit a new record of 1.1 GB earlier. It started after I ran a 3D game on my laptop for a week, and a hardware failure in something called LiveKernelEvent happened a few times.

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    Desktop Window Manager's memory increases without limit

    Increase Memory Usasge After update

    Prior to the windows KB4524244 update my memory usage was right around 7% - Running at 32gb memory I am now using idle 12% memory without Firefox, Chrome, or internet explorer running. I find it a bit annoying that my machine with 32GB Ram/memory is operating
    at idle as if it had 24GB or 16GB memory after the update.

    Hoping Microsoft could help with some advice.

    Here are a few things I tried without any luck of performance.

    • Increase Virtual memory from 4057mb to 10,000mb ( did not really help)
    Fix 5: Set Registry Hack
    This feature can delete page file at shut down to release virtual memory.

    Here is a tutorial.

    Step 1: Press "Windows + R" keys and then type "regedit" to open Registry Editor.

    Step 2: Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > Session Manager > Memory Management.

    Step 3: Find ClearPageFileAtShutDown and right click it to modify its value to 1, and then click OK to save it.
