Windows 7: Ongoing BSOD; dxgkrnl.sys, dxgmms1.sys, and nvlddmkm.sys

Not sure what is going on, and didn't pay much attention when the older hard drive was installed. but now my system is using a lot of cpu and memory when it is essentially sitting idle. As I'm sitting here, the only thing open is Internet Explorer and its using nearly 3gb of memory and the cpu keeps going from around 1% to over 50% usage....

I haven't noticed any unusual processes running or anything, and I recently installed MalwareBytes and ran a scan, but didn't come up with anything. I also ran SuperAntiSpyware and Microsoft Security Essentials, but nothing came up other than some cookies.



Edit: As I finished typing, CPU went down to basically nothing, but system is now using 3.5gb for no apparent reason. I only had 8gb installed before and I don't remember it ever using this much memory sitting idle

Ok Terrek now your pic shows something like 2.83GB RAM being used and I have just checked this machine I am on and it is very similar (8GB DDR3). My processes tab in the task manager is showing not much at all although I do have a fair number of Chrome processes going on so what is your Processes tab showing?

its not a real sp2 like on xp, its those rollup updates. but getting of sp1 to those update takes a long time.
there is a tool like wsusoffline do to that faster.
Yes mate I know of another useful link to speed up the update downloads too following the install of the OS and SP1

during windows update, it eats ram like chrome.
make a screenshot of your process manager, to guess what process is using that.

Yep agree with h1ght and if you open the Processes tab in the Task manager and then open show processes from all users you will see just what all the running processes are showing mine is quite a bit at 28% physical memory but I have the 8GB so I am not worried that much. From what you are saying you have less than 8GB??
In my pic you can see what h1ght means by Chrome chomping on the RAM although in truth it looks a lot but added up is not but compared to some processes it is - if that makes sense. The real eye waterer is the all users tab

Ok, here is what was going on this morning.

first pic is within first 10-20 minutes after computer started up. cpu went over 50% usage and over 3gb of memory. granted I did have a few Internet Explorer pages open, but these websites did not have ads or pop-ups on them.


second is after that, probably after 30 minutes from start up. cpu usage dropped way down, basically 1-2%. memory usage is still 2.78gb. All Internet Explorer pages were now closed.

I have noticed FPS drops while playing games the last few days. Specifically Fallout 4. At first I thought it was do to the latest High Res texture update, which was over 50gb. But I uninstalled it yesterday and my fps is still lower than before I installed it. Game also takes longer to load up too.

I am going to run Memtest 86+ again tonight and see if something is wrong with the new cards....

Sorry late reply mate had a bad night.

Now in the task manager did you try clicking the Show all processes? it will give you a longer listing of the processes that are in use. see pics.

Well the memtest would not go amiss either and if the sticks are new and you do get errors then it could possibly be that one or more of the slots is bad - very unusual but possible and that means finding a good stick and testing each slot in turn.

Ok well the report shows the machine is using 16% of the total memory (in processes) and the maths tells me that is 1.28GB so I am not sure where the other 1.40GB is being used??

Now I am not sure of where to go next and I might ask for some help from the others if that is ok with you.

sure.

It's not causing a huge problem at the moment, it just kind of annoying, and some programs seem to run a bit slow because of it.

Hmm just wondering what is the speed of the DDR3? am assuming it is 1333 Mhz. The only difference between yours an the machine I am on is mine has DDR3 1600Mhz.

Having said that on my Ivy Bridge desktop I can overclock the RAM to 2400 Mhz and even so I am hard pushed to see what difference it makes.
