Windows 7: Event Viewer - Diagnostics-Performance

Event Viewer - Diagnostics-Performance

Hello everyone,

I just checked Event Viewer and for me it shows me a lot of warnings.
Each warning contains:

The Desktop Window Manager is experiencing heavy resource contention.
Scenario : Video memory resources are over-utilized and there is thrashing happening as a result. Reducing number of running programs and open windows may help resolve this condition.

My videocard is OC'ed quite a lot. Could that be the cause?
I got a (old I know) GTS450 running at 968/1936/2075

Regards, Mark

Of course as could a lot of other things

Please provide us with your Event Viewer administrative logs by following these steps:


Click Start Menu
Type eventvwr into Search programs and files (do not hit enter)
Right click eventvwr.exe and click Run as administrator
Expand Custom Views
Click Administrative Events
Right click Administrative Events
Save all Events in Custom View As...
Save them in a folder where you will remember which folder and save as Errors.evtx
Go to where you saved Errors.evtx
Right click Errors.evtx -> send to -> compressed (zipped) folder
Upload the .zip file here.

Hello,

Here is the zip file you requested.
You can ignore the Network Location Awareness error, I turned that service off.

I actually can't find any performance errors in that log for some reason.

Two things of note
