    Windows 8.1 memory leak with BSOD


    Since i've upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 on my laptop (Lenovo G500S)
    I've been getting errors and BSODs while playing games. This are mostly games which use over 1GB of RAM (League of Legends, Chivarly Medieval Warfare and Red Orchestra 2) it gives the error: Please shutdown programs to prevent loss off information. (something in that direction I have the Dutch version.) It basicly tells me that I do not have enough RAM left to run the game. I have 8GB of RAM in this machine with a Intel HD 4000 GPU and a GeForce GT 720m. After I ignore the memory message and keep playing it will blue screen giving this error: DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (igdkmd64.sys)

    I have no clue what to do anymore, I know it has to do something with Intel kernel. I've been looking all over the internet for a fix but can't find it anywhere.

    I have uploaded a analysis of the BSOD with a program called Bluescreenviewer, you can see the BSOD's i've had and what it caused.

    Thank you

    EDIT: also some links from the same program.

Been trying to hunt down a memory leak for about a week now and I've finally narrowed it down to the storport.sys driver. Trouble is, this is a Microsoft driver for HDD storage ports.

Recently I started to receive Windows messages asking for closing the game to avoid data loss. I noticed hat Ghosts was using around 28GB of RAM. I am running the game at "extra quality" settings on the specs below. I never had such issue before. Is there a way to limit the game memory allocation?...
Not sure how best to describe this problem other than a temporary memory leak that I can't determine the cause of. It's been happening for about the last 8 months or so, and happens maybe once a month. I'm running Windows 8.1 with all the latest updates installed. Basically, over a period of 2-3...
Hey guys, I have no programs running, just chrome with a couple of websites. On my previous pc with windows 7 i've never had the memory use more than 5 GB just for chrome. Also, the paged pool seems to fill up the longer I use my pc. I've read numerous threads with people saying that it is...
Just got on the computer now, and suddenly everything seems to be slow, I checked the memory and found out that some program is using 94% of the memory, when I was looking for the program I found out that no program is using that amount of memory, 200 at most. I downloaded RAMmap to map out the...
