No problem! This bug is quite stupid, but... yeah, R.I.P.
How many free space is on the disk with page file?
It can be that some software on your rig has a memory leak, which can inflate page file to occupy whole free space.
Also when checking, ensure that your page file is on the same drive as your OS, no slave drive allocation etc. Windows does not like it! I think it's the apps/progs running within windows as opposed to Windows itself that take exception to a non C: drive page file
Sorry your Guru3D profile doesn't let me check your previous comments. What is this issue for?
I hate to ask but I'll need a manual Windows crash dump file to look into this. Make sure you are on the latest driver and configure your PC as described in the FAQ. Then once you reproduce the G-SYNC issue, force a manual crash and then share the dump file with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks. I filed a bug so that our team can look into this.
160gb currently free on my C drive
page file is on my C drive where my OS is currently.
Can you do the following please?
1. Roll back to driver 497.29.
2. With the Asus TUF VG27aq monitor connected to your laptop and monitor set to 144Hz, capture a dispdiag log file as described below and then email it to me at email@example.com
Time differences, mainly.
The timestamp of any running process under system is greatly increased while any driver above 472.12 is installed. The issue can be validated by measuring the CPU counter on the desktop.
@Ben Rich set it to fixed amount of 16384 (both for min and max) reboot and try.
The only time a person needs to use DDU is when downgrading the version of a driver. There, I said it.
It is a pure superstition. Windows does not care where page file is. And applications (no matter MS or 3rd party ones) do not know about paging because paging is a mechanism of OS kernel (not OS API).
In era of HDDs it was a best practice - to place page files on each of HDDs - because OS was choosing for paging the less currently busy disk.
PS Only thing that needs additional configuration in case OS partition has no page file is a dump-file. By default OS creates dump file on OS partition and with page file On.
Or anyone can use it whenever they want and it will affect you in exactly zero ways.
I have a new issue with this driver. Not sure, it might be a new feature.. Anyway.. Normally when I turn my TV off, nothing happens. But now when I turn it off, it seems to automatically switch to 1 monitor mode? Like if I have a media player on my TV, when I turn the TV off it now moves the media player to my #1 monitor...
Any way to fix this behavior?
IMO, no way device driver can do such action as to move app window to another monitor.
Well the app would automatically move window IF I go from two screens to one screen? And thats what started to happen with the new drive i think.
Its like the driver/device notice my TV is off and then disables the dual screen mode or maybe disconnects the HDMI? It still shows as "extended" (win+p) and also shows active in Nvidia control panel. Also when I turn the TV on again, its still extended like it should.
I tried moving the browser to the TV and turned it off, it moves that too to my main monitor.
That should be the feature of Windows itself - how place app on one of several physical monitors. Driver is a low level entity (how videocard ticks and works with monitors). App window is a high level (user interactive) OS entity. Videocard knows nothing about user apps, desktops...
Maybe it was a bug - to leave app window on monitor which goes off? I mean it is logical - to move app window from inactive monitor to active one.
I have never attached several monitors so I speak from hypothetical point of view.
Does anyone have Tekken 7?
I have an awful bug that started after Feb 12, tried reinstalling windows 11,10, reset bios, no gsync, low or high settings, but nothing matter.
The game will run at 60fps(limit though can be bypassed by a mod) but the game feels sluggish, as it's running at 30 fps.
Can anyone check it?
You are not reading what Im writing. If I manually switch from Extended mode to "PC screen only" then any apps on my TV would move. The same thing is happening, but when turning the TV off since the latest driver.
Its not about something moving the APP windows, that just happens when the Extended screen mode switches to PC only mode.
Videocard and its driver do not know about Windows screen modes. Windows manipulates its screen modes (and behavior of app windows). Of course Windows has to cooperate with videocard to maintain the list of monitors and their states.
Maybe I should restrain myself from answering to you, since I am not helping by thinking academically.
PS Are you sure it was only a videocard drivers that got updated?
PPS I will repeat just in case: videocard does not know what it outputs to attached monitors, hence it can`t decide to switch screen modes, but Windows can - after it receives a notification about one of monitors turning on/off . That`s my understanding.
