    Monitors going black and dwm.exe memory leak *help wanted*


    Hello.

    I had some issues with my pc for a while now. I had some problems before with my monitors going black, as if im installing graphic driver, and I thought my gpu was breaking its fairly new= geforce gtx 1050 and one day I couldnt change any settings in Windows so I deleted and reinstalled Windows.

    Things was going well for a while but then my monitors started going black again and when I was using my browser it ran out of memory and then my monitors went black.
    After I checked task manager and I noticed that my pc was using over 97% of memory so I open up Resource manager and dwm.exe was on top of the list using sh*tload of memory.

    So I googled the problem and saw that it would help to turn off all visual effects. That actually helped alot. From getting this memory leak once or twice per day it stopped. Now it started again but may happen every 2-3 days and now Im just lost on what to do.

    I have read forums and I have done a Windows performance recorder scan, while the dwm.exe was high, but I have no clue on how to read the charts and also I dont know how I can add them to this post as well so if anyone think they could help me and if it would help to have these charts please tell me how to include them in this post :

    Thank you for reading and any help would be appreciated.

    :)

    Memory leak issue

    The term "memory leak" means that an application fails to return all its RAM to the operating system when it exits. The leftover RAM is unusable to the operating system.

    Step one is to identify the application that is leaking memory. Step two is to contact the application's developers and provide as much detailed data on the memory leak as you can. For example: which processes are still in RAM after the application exits
    and how much RAM they occupy. Application developers never want their applications to leak memory and they will be grateful for the details you provide, particularly if they can replicate the leak on their own computers.

    Possible Memory Leaks in Windows 10

    A memory leak occurs when an application closes and fails to release all its RAM back to the operating system.

    The first step in dealing with a memory leak is to determine which application is leaking memory.

    The next step is to contact that application's technical support with complete details of the memory leak, since the developers will want to fix the problem ASAP.

    Desktop Window Manager Memory Leak

    These applications not are compute-intensive, compared to
    CPU speed. "The problem" is the memory leak of DWM.

    As soon as I could observe a high memory consumption by DWM, I started windows performance tool kit and run the diagnose. Then I switch to the game and
    continued playing for a few seconds
    until stop the diagnosis.
