Solved: OS Paged Pool Memory Reset to high

Q: Solved: OS Paged Pool Memory Reset to high

I have a Compaq Presario running windows XP and 1G of RAM with a game that said the paged pool memory was to low. I subsequently reset it via the " run regedit" and now no applications will run and the computer has to be physically shutdown by holding the on/off button. The error message I get is "you do not have the required memory to run this application". How do get back to normal?

Thanks for the help.

Ive been having this problem for ages now with all Valve games and valve games ONLY. Just as im about to go in-game it crashes to desktop with an error message reading "Internal driver error at Present: You're likely out of OS Paged Pool Memory!"

I had a feeling this was a RAM related issue and considering I only had 2GB, I upgraded to 4 GB - It still does it

Iv'e tried changing the Paged Pool size through the regedit - It still does it.

Ive tried everything, its getting rediculous now, I really dont see what could be wrong, I have a beast of a PC for gods sake it can run crysis.

after installing a new graphics card and trying to play a game, i instead received an error message saying that there isnt enough "Paged Pool Memory".
what is paged pool memory and how can i increase it? do i basically just have to add memory to my system?

A:paged pool memory

Paged pool memory is a region in virtual memory which can be paged in and paged out of the system. Device driver which do not need to access the memory from DPC/Dispatch level or above can use paged pool. it is accessible from any process context.

Hi all,

I am having a non paged pool memory leak.

As far as i'm aware all drivers are up to date.

When playing games via steam I occasionally get a crash followed by the error message.

failed to lock vertex buffer in cmesh dx8

According to the FAQ on steam this is caused by a lack of paged pool memory which is reserved for apps like direct3d.

To get round this issue its recommended that you remove a line form the boot.ini which unlocks the page pool memory. The line is /3GB /Userva=2900

Does anyone know where this line is in windows 7 or how I can unlock the paged pool memory as I'm finding the crashes are starting to interfere with my enjoyment of gaming.

Any help gratefully appreciated.

A:Paged pool memory issues

Paged pool is memory that's "paged" out to the paging file on your hard drive. The easiest way would be (I think) to increase the amount of paging file allowed on your hard drive (see this article for more details on the paged pool: Mark's Blog : Pushing the Limits of Windows: Paged and Nonpaged Pool )

As for the /3gb switch, this is for programs that are aware of the 3gB switch. It won't do anything if the programs aren't specifically designed for it. What it does is allocate 3 gB of virtual memory for user level processes - leaving 1 gB for kernel level processes. And, it only applies to a 32 bit OS. Are you running 32 or 64 bit Windows 7?

I've been having some issues with Windows XP over the last couple of months. It got much worse once I installed StarCraft II on my computer. I get the error "Your computer has run out of paged pool memory" and the program lags or crashes. I looked under blizzards website and they state that this is a Windows XP problem. From what I can find it usually occurs from a bad driver that is taking paged memory and not releasing it. I upgrade drivers for every piece of hardware I could find under Device Manager with no luck.

Microsoft has some tools to track paged memory, but I cant seem to get any of them to work. Some of the tools seem out of date or missing. Is there a program that will identify what is filling up my paged memory?

Is there a way to "empty" the memory pool?

My system exceeds the minimum requirements for the game. I have reduced the video effects in game to the bare minimum with no result.

Hey everyone! I am a newbie PC builder. I have recently built a computer consist of the following spec:

I have nothing but the msi driver utility, process explorer, office pro 2010 and Assassin's Creed II installed. I have updated all MB drivers through the msi utility, updated Windows 7 as much as possible, installed the latest GPU driver from nvidia. When I played AC II, the GPU driver crashes every 10 sec. I also got the message saying my PC is running out of paged pool memory. I tried the method from teamliquid, it doesn't work. I went to process explorer, under system information, both of the paged and non-paged limit have no symbol. That is all I have. Thank you, and greatly appreciate any help.

Hey all, this is my first time posting here so please be gentle :)

I, like most gamers/comp sci majors, have fallen in to the trap of trying to get Half-Life 2 to play on my laptop and am dealing with paged pool memory issues. I followed a solution on a previous forum and went in to the registry editor, changing the PagedPoolSize like so:

Quoted from the previous site:

"This is how to fix it
Here's how you open Registry Editor:

Start Menu > Run > regedit

Surf down to this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management

Double click on "PagedPoolSize". Hexadecimal is listed first. Change the "Value Data" to one of these below:
(Note: You only need to enter EITHER Hexadecimal or Decimal. They both are the same.)

Megabytes Hexadecimal Decimal
192Mb 0c000000 201326592
256Mb 10000000 268435456
384Mb 18000000 402653184

I went with the 384Mb option and it worked perfectly.

Once you are done, make sure you reboot your computer."

I followed this solution with the 256 Mb option, restarted the computer, and the computer didn't even load all the way the first time and after shutting down and restarted it again, I barely got to the Desktop with nothing really running. So I painfully went in and changed it back to 0 (the default setting) like it was before and I restarted it and MOST of it is fine again, but I am ... Read more

A:Paged Pool Memory Adverse Effects/How to Fix

As this article says, 'Do not change the size of the paging file by editing the registry.'


Since you did play about, perhaps making a manual change as per the instructions will help 'kick' things back to normal.

Click start, control panel, system, advanced, performance, advanced and under virtual memory click change, then custom size, and set the vRam to whatever value you like (I would recommend equal to the installed Ram as a start) min and max. Click set and ok your way out.

You can always go back and set things to letting Window decide.

Hi Everyone.

I've been searching as much as i could here and there on the internet without any luck so i'm giving it a chance here if someone has an idea how to troubleshoot/investigate this.

I'm Running Windows 8.1 Update 1 Enterprise.
custom built machine :

I7 4770K
32gb ram
Samsung evo pro 256gb ssd
2x gtx 770 sli

the installation was done around end of january, i don't have much running on that computer but games (i have another system for work)

The issue i have is the Paged Pool memory after system is up is at roughly 250mb but keep increasing around 1-2mb per sec and never stops, after roughly 1h uptime, i'm already at 2gb.(after 1day uptime yesterday, i was at 56gb). The non-paged pool is however never an issue and sits between 150mb and 250mb (i would say normal values)

i've read about disabling NDU, disabling killer networks application (my network driver) and many other things but so far still no luck.

i'm willing to run any kind of software or give any traces, my main issue right now is how to find what is causing this. i believe there is a memory leak somewhere but i have no idea/clues how to trace it down.

Many thanks for your time and help.



A:Paged Pool memory constantly increasing

Hello BuG,

With 32 GB of RAM installed, it's not unusual for your page file to get just as large.

If you like, you could use step 11 in the tutorial below to specify a minimum and maximum page file size for your C: drive to prevent it from getting larger on it's own. If you get a low memory or out of memory error afterwards while running Windows, then it means that you will need to increase the size of the page file until you stop getting the error.

If you have plenty of hard drive space, then it is recommended to leave the page file to be system managed though.

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 normal for a pc to use all the RAM because otherwise it's useless RAM. But I don't really believe that something like this is normal. In most threads people talked about a memory leak in the non-paged pool.

I find it also very weird that when I look at my processes they just don't add up to the 5 GB in use. Using rammap or process explorer doesn't show annything at all.
Here are my specs:
Lenovo B5400
Windows 8.1 64-bit (6.3, Build 9600)
Intel Core i5-4200M CPU @ 2.50 GHz (4CPU's)
8192MB RAM

I'm having real problems with League of Legends, I just get too much lag when I play. I have a constant 40 ping so that's not the problem, my fps is 60-70 so that's not really bad. But I just get these random stutters every few seconds. Also when I browse my pc is just acting too slow for it's specs.
I hope someone can help with this problem as I am a noob when it comes to computers. I paid about 700 euros for this laptop and I find it sad that I this stupid problem. I've already disabled superfetch and I really don't want a link to another thread as I've read every single one of them and I'm getting nuts


A:Windows 8.1 - Memory leak problem in paged pool

Hello SebaaVH,

You appear to be one of those affected by this Google Chrome bug that only affects "some." Now, since I don't know if they ever fixed it (I don't use Chrome), I would suggest trying a different browser (i.e., Firefox or Opera) to see if that fixes your issue. Now, some have stated they fixed their issue by clearing their browser cache but that would be just a band-aid IMHO:

Massive memory leak, though memory usage does not show for GC in task manager:

Regarding your League of Legends issue, I don't play it myself but your issue (or something similar) has come up several times quite recently and, if you do a Google search for that issue, you will find tons of people having issues when playing it online. You might be better off seeking assistance at a gaming forum for that specific issue IMHO.

Good luck.

So I recently purchased a new motherboard, CPU, RAM and PSU. I kept things from my old computer, such as my hard drives and video card. I formatted my main hard drive that I keep Windows on, and used to run x86, but am now running x64.

I did this all for Borderlands 2, I wanted a better computer to run and play this game on, since I've been a fan of the first one since it came out. Prior to the installation of all of these new parts, everything on the older version of my computer worked fine. I could play games, albeit on low settings, without a problem, but now, games such as Dota 2 and Borderlands 2 will run for about 3-4 minutes before the screen goes black, and comes back three times, before the program itself stops responding.

One of the games gave me a reason as to the poor performance, and said the game had run out of Paged Pool Memory, and would decrease performance. Even when doing so, it still shuts down after a few seconds.

I know that this is a hardware problem, which is why I didn't post about it in Games. It's happening to many programs that require the use of memory, and not just games. If there's anything anybody can do to help me, it would be greatly appreciated.

A:Multiple Programs Crashing, Paged Pool Memory Loss?

Read other 7 answers

I'm just wondering if this is something abnormal. I keep my system up 24/7 just shutting off display without putting it to sleep/hibernate. Every morning when I wake up and check the kernel memory, it's quite high >500mb. I checked with a friend and his is onli about ~300. What does this mean, a memory leak?

A:high paged kernel memory

No, it means your kernel simply has more allocations than his. Unless it's causing a performance or stability detriment or growing over time without shrinking back properly, then it's nothing to worry about. Also note that there are several kernel pools that make up kernel memory as a whole, so to troubleshoot (if that is necessary) it's going to require you being more specific about memory usage, and to where, in the kernel.

good morning forum.

I am running windows 8.1 (x64)
I have the following problem my non paged pool is constantly very high. I have 4 gb. RAM and 1.2 of them are used by the non paged pool.
poolmon tells me that 1 gb of the non paged memory is taged with ECMC. In the most forums is written, that this is connected to a programm called Intellimem which I do not have installed on my computer. Findstr /s ECMC *.sys does not find anything in the system32 folder or even above. Does anyone has an Idea how to trace back this tag to a driver or program to get rid of the problem?

Windows 8 64; AMD A8 CPU; 8GB Corsair (2x4GB) DDR3 RAM. WebrootSA AV, and Comodo firewall.

Something is happening!

I will be playing Battlefield 3, and suddenly the game screeches to a dying studder, with FPS below 0.1

Upon checking task manager, and confirming with other utilities, my non-paged pool is swallowing up all the RAM.. And it sticks around, sometimes for minutes, hours, or days.. I can bring the non-paged pool back to normal 30-60MB from (well, its currently at 5.5GB) by removing and switching up the memory sticks. Sometimes I just let the RAM sit out for some air for an hour or so.. idk, I even bought matching RAM because I thought the different brand names could possible cause it..

I've looked around in the past for solutions but I could never get any idea what is causing the non-paged poop to IMMEDIATELY SNAP from 45MB up to 5.5GB! Is there something I could check at startup of my system to see what is taking the non-paged pool? Or would I need to replicate the original in-game crash?

A:Non-Paged Pool taking 5.5GB/8GB RAM

Well generally this isn't a hardware fault, so replacing or removing the RAM will not fix it.

Something is using too much memory and not allowing it to be paged out. Do you you page file disabled by chance? If you go to the Processes tab and enable the "Show Processes from All Users" which ones show are using the most memory?

If it consistently happens while BF3 than it may be a glitch in the game or a driver issue. Do you have all the latest patches for BF3? Have you uninstalled and reinstalled the latest graphics driver? Updated the sound driver?

I'm running XP SP2, and experiencing a non-paged pool leak of about 150 MBs a day. The pool will fill up after about 42 hours leading to a BSOD (0x000000f4). Poolmon is indicating the tag IRP is allocating ~20 bytes constantly and never freeing it. It's probably a driver, but I can't get any closer than that to finding out which one. I also monitored the leak in safe mode with no networking and it still leaks there. Could anyone perhaps help narrow it down more?

I have attached the ZIP of the SF Diagnostic Tool to this post now

Basically about 3 weeks ago I had some computer issues, I figured it was a good time for a couple of upgrades so I replaced the Motherboard, Processor, Power Supply, and I had my Video Card RMA'd by EVGA (excessive coil whine)

I formatted the hard drive (it was a 300GB partition of a 1.5 TB Raid 0) and reinstalled windows 8 to the computer, everything seemed fine for about a week, I took my computer downstairs to hook it up to a TV so my family could watch some Hulu on the big screen and my computer started getting BSOD every few minutes.

I was unsure as to what was causing it so I reinstalled windows again. After the install I was still getting BSOD... so I went out and bought a SATA 120GB SSD and put it in as the primary Hard Drive and installed windows to that drive instead of onto the Raid partition. Same thing, more BSOD...

At this point I have reinstalled 4 times, I tried allowing Windows to fully update everything and tried turning all updates off and manually installing everything myself. More BSOD both ways... in fact at this point when I try to manually install the NVidia drivers they just Fail during the install and wont finish...

Any help on this would be appreciated - the PC crashes on boot (during the 'loading windows' screen) if I try and do a normal boot. Safe mode works, but then I get Bad Pool Error if I try and browse to any complex website (simply stuff works, but this one doesn't, for example - I assume it's Javascript or Flash crashing it).

Plus running many applications (including Notepad) leads directly to a Page-fault in non-paged area result.

Things I've tried: full scans with Avast and Malwarebytes, startup recovery console from the disc and all the options there including Startup Repair multiple times and SFC -scannow, error checking the drive with chkdsk and Partition Magic.

I tried driver verifier, but that was when the computer would still boot, it stopped it booting entirely (the earlier dmp files will be from that, the ones from today in safe mode), and it took some fixing to get as far as safe mode, so reluctant to try it again.

I'm at something of a loss, I can't even look at the dmp files myself as trying to run the Windbg install tool crashes the PC, and I don't have a second Windows machine. And I can't do an in-place re-install as that's not allowed from safe mode...

Issue: My system is quite "slugglish" and "freezes" quite often while doing seeminly minor tasks (opening or scrolling on simple web pages).

What I've Noticed (sorry if this is irrelevant):

When I play High Stakes Pool in the Pogo site, I have barely been able to distinguish the striped balls from the solid ones. Have written to Pogo several times, not really getting across the problems, assuming the game just looked that way. But...just played on the Pogo site, same game, off anothers computer. Could see the balls perfectly, all colors there, not a problem, so now, must deal with the fact that my system must have something lacking in some way to be unable to see the colors as I did on the other computer. I have Windows XP, the other system Windows 98.
How can I solve this problem...where do I start? Thanks for all help...appreciated!! Parrotplay

I have troubles with system stability, crashes and glitches in software.

This computer is for my work (visualisation/rendering).

-Most full system crashes occur when listening music and high demand software (rendering pre computation, rendering, saving files ~400mb).
-I frequently use ~10gb ram for rendering (of 16gb)
-Occasionally before crashing the system will be stuck in a state, music will continue playing for short while, can still navigate between applications but cannot open anything new.
-Crysis will occasionally crash when I played it.

Glitches include;
-Rendering crash (something like error in the pre computation files).
-Recently experienced windows explorer not refreshing files lists/names.
-music pausing or stuttering during intensive application, after closing the application the music will have large breaks between songs and when seeking. (becoming more frequent recently)

Not sure what those drivers are for but they def out of date
Start with updating your system drivers

Now the error you have mentioned about "memory_management_fault in non paged area" and your dump files are referring to memory corruption as well
I know you have tested your memory but what understood was that you ran the test on all the sticks at same time that actually does not work
so follow this
BSODs can be caused by the hardware issues as well. Most common is the memory corruption. It is very important to run memtest on single stick of RAM at a time in troubled computer. Running test on all RAM sticks at once does not give accurate results

I am using...

XP Home
SP 2
Intel Celeron CPU 2.20 GHz
992 MB Ram

I do document conversions. I work with MS Word files anywhere from 6MB to 23MB in size. If I reboot the computer and start a processing task I get no hangs. However, the longer I work on a task like a "find and replace", the slower the computer's processing gets and then I run out of virtual memory. When run out of virtual memory, I can no longer save the file.

Is there a way to reset or empty out the memory of my computer system without rebooting the system? I can copy and paste a small amount of text like a comma, but that does not help the memory problem.

I bought a DP55WG motherboard. It came with a piece of paper saying "Don't use memory that uses more than 1.6V." but online it says 1.65V. The memory I bought is 1.7V. I didn't know this until opening it up. Should I somehow figure out a way to return? Will it definitely not work in the board? Thanks.

Edit: I used inputted my board on Kingston's website and it says the memory I got can be used. http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/hyperx_us/modelsinfo.asp?SysID=57339

I bought the KHX1333C7D3K2/4G.

This page seems to show one with an X at the end of the model number and it says DIMM after that and it is 1.65V, so I'm guessing the only difference is that that one is lower volts so it'll work on the i5/i7 boards: http://www.kingston.com/hyperx/products/khx_ddr3.asp#1375

Can I set the memory voltage down to 1.65V in the BIOS when I first power it on, so I don't need to replace the memory?

A:Solved: Memory Voltage too high?

The voltage won't most certainly be 1.7 V on first boot anyways(most probably stock 1.5), you'll just use 1.6 V and see at how high a frequency you can get them running at. You can with good luck get them running at specced speeds with 1.6 volts.
Or, you'll use 1.7 V despite the paper telling you not to. There is relatively quite little harm possible to be caused to the board with higher VDIMM, almost in all cases the memory will be damaged from overvolts, and in this scenario you aren't even going to overvolt, just going to use the specified voltage.

I am trying to solve an issue that has recently been occurring on my personal PC. On my PC I have been having issues with high memory usage by several programs that I can not seem to resolve. Usually the programs start small and get bigger, sometimes quickly such as the case with outlook and firefox often jumping from 10k to 60k in a matter of minutes and others slowly of the course of a few hours. I am a computer tech myself and the fact that i cant seem to fix my own computer has been driving me insane. Also any help with the trimming down of running process would be greatly appreciated.

The programs with the highest memory usage typically are: Outlook, Word, firefox, rtvscan, vzfw.exe, svchost.exe, yahoo widget engine (konfabulator.exe), ehrecsvr.exe, ehshell. exe.

These processes typically run over 20 mb and under 80 however as you will see in my taskmanager this seems to be a much farther reaching issue that does not always follow what is typical

I have run several antivirus and antispyware checks and have found only one thing. I found 180searchassistant/zango with webroot spysweeper.

I built my computer about six months ago and have been having sporadic BSOD problems since day one. I have tried everything I know to do and gotten nowhere. I'm running 7 Professional x64 retail, and this is the first install of it. My computer seems to give me a BSOD within a few minutes of booting up, sometimes it is memory management, other times it is page fault in non paged area.

I built my PC in 2010. Ever since I have been having intermittent BSOD problems. I've found that if I put the computer to sleep instead of shutting down, when it boots stable, it will remain stable. Otherwise I have BSOD crashes 5-20 minutes after booting. I've run memtest86+ after crashes and had it report errors, but if I remove the RAM, re-insert it, and run memtest, no errors will be reported. It also typically remains stable if I boot after inserting the RAM. Anyway, this is getting to be a pain and I'm trying to work something out. I posted before, and the last piece of advice I received was as follows:

"That is not unusual, electronics are just that way, when memtest86+ shows errors it means there is a problem. Even if it doesn't show any errors the run before and the run after.
An error with 2X4GB installed and then no errors with 1X2GB installed, usually indicates a timing and/or voltage adjustment is needed.

It is still possible that the RAM is faulty, let's try some adjustments and see if it will run stable.

CPUZ is showing your CR at 1T, go to BIOS and select 2T again, save and exit BIOS.
Then check CPUZ Memory tab and see if it says CR 2T.

Go to DRAM timings and change 'cycle time (tRAS)' to 25, this will be the 4th item in BIOS -DDR3 Timings Items.
When changed it should read, for the first 4 timings:

Bump your CPU NB voltage to 1.240v or as close as you can get it to that number.
Save and exit BIOS.

Hi Xenoda.

First of all, the msinfo32.nfo file included in the zip is not complete. So we are not having some very important info there. Upload your MSINFO32.nfo file again.
Click on the start button
Type "msinfo32" (without quotes) in the search bar of the start menu, click the resulting link. It will open the System Information window.
File>Save. In the "File Name" filed, put "MSINFO32" (without Quote), give the save location to desktop, and click the "save" button.
Give the time for processing, it will save a .nfo file on your desktop.
Zip it, and upload it following the instruction.
In the mean time, as the BSODs are memory related (may be a failing RAM or may be any driver passing bad info to the memory), Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Let us know the result.

OK, heres the deal....
Lately, I've been experiencing severe slowdowns on my PC. Yeah I know my pc is an old timer,but it has served me quite well.
The problem started after I uninstalled my HP printer(Real headache that was).... But that I could still live with. The real issue started after I installed my webcam... First of all, the webcam has never once functioned well... After running for a few minutes, it gets stuck.. Even Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn't seem to work (It brings up an error message that I cant remember). The only solution is to restart the PC(which seems to take forever).
Well, leaving that aside, even the boot time has drastically increased. I use Eset Smart Security, and it's startup scan takes about 2 minutes to start, and then another 2 minutes to complete. After the startup, if I right click to refresh, that takes another 2 minutes. I try to open my browser, that takes another 2 minutes. Today, after the startup I opened the task manager and found Services.exe rnning at about 130000 K. This has really become a serious issue for me......

I am not really sure if these are all due to the same reason, just thought it would be appropriate to give the whole background.

My system is not exhibiting any slow down problem or other negatives except for an occasional screen freeze.

Is there a way to address this problem other than unchecking the notification screen in AVG 2012 which I have done?
What is normal memory usage range for my computer?

So a bit of background. I have randomly started receiving BSOD's during normal and gaming use of my PC. This actually started when the weather here in London started to get hot. I do have custom cooling, I have never had overheating issues so I am not sure if it is related. The main OS is on the SSD, which I reformatted to see if it would help. I am now using my old HD with the win7 on it, but it has BSOD on here too.

My PC BSODs many times and will refuse to load BIOS after unless I leave it off for a few minutes (BIOS CHECKSUM errors, I have reflashed the BIOS and still recieve the same error sometimes). I can then either log back on or it would reboot at the windows 7 loading logo. The CPU was originally overclocked by about 10% and unlocked to 4 cores with a the VCORE pushed up by around 10% (1.41vcore). It has also crashed when I reverted back to stock speeds/cores/voltages, but not as frequently.

It has been working flawlessly over the past 6 months, I do not want to replace hardware but I have a feeling it is time for a new CPU/Motherboard.

I would appreciate any insight as to what may be the fault. I have attached the dump file.

thanks in advance.
