I've seen a couple of questions regarding this issue, but there hasn't been any responses that has solved my problems so I will ask again and list what I've done to resolve the issue.

Thanks in advance for any help or input on this issue.

I've been having some issues since upgrading from Windows 7 64-bit to Windows 8.1 64-bit. Currently after I've been playing some games for a while my Non-Paged Pool gets filled up with 6GB of my 8GB of RAM. I am unable to clear this up unless I reboot my machine.

I've been trying to troubleshoot this for a while now without much success. The only way I know of how to make this happen less frequent is to "underclock" my gfx card through the Graphics Overdrive in AMD Catalyst Control Center.

What I've tested so far:

Uninstall Catalyst Control Center

  • This helps a little, if I don't allow CCC to boot on startup or uninstall it it feels like it takes a longer time for non paged pool to fill up.

Underclock the GPU

  • So far the best "solution" which isn't at all what I want to do. It makes the game more playable.
  • Changed High Performance GPU clock settings from 800MHz to 500MHz. and Memory Clock Settings to 1250MHz instead of 1300MHz.
  • This will cost me in game performance how ever and I coul just buy a cheaper card... Not a good solution at all.

Went through these steps - which have been suggested on numerous forums. http://answers.ea.com/t5/Battlefield-4/Direct-X-Function-error-Solutions-Compilation/td-p/1741229

  • Solution 1: Change regional settings to English (United States)
    • Doesn't do anything at all to solve the problem.
  • Solution 2: DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_RESET msg pop up, didn't have that. But have shut off Origin In Game.
    • Doesn't do anything at all to solve the problem.
  • Solution 3: dbcdedit / set increaseuserva 2500
    • Doesn't do anything at all to solve the problem.
  • Solution 4: repaired, reinstall Virtual C++ Redist.
    • Doesn't do anything at all to solve the problem.
  • Solution 5: delete PROFSAVE_profile.
    • Guess what, this doesn't do anything at all to solve the problem.

I am aware that from the get go these "Solutions" aren't originally intended to solve this problem. But the link has been posted several times as a solution to the problem. Non of these steps does anything to solve memory leaks and mainly aim to solve problems one experience with DX errors and actual error messages that will help you to trouble shoot correctly.

I have uninstalled both Origin and Battlefield 4. Cleared the registry of any traces of it with Revo Uninstaller Pro Cleared again with CCleaner Installed everything on a seperate HDD from the OS.

My setup:

  • OS: Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit (6.3 Build 9600)
  • CPU: Intel(R) Core i4-2500K 3.30GHz
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6950
  • Main Driver: aticfxi64.dll, Version: 13.251.0.0

For example I play some Battlefield 4 (The game where this problem is most common) and after about 30 minutes to 2 hours of gameplay I experience huge FPS drops and will have to reboot the computer.

The Task Manager will look something like this at the time of reboot.

Win 8.1 Task Manager - BF4 Non-Paged pool

I downloaded poolmon.exe to find out which driver is hogging all the RAM. Turns out it is something called MINI.

The output from Poolmon looks like this:

  • Two pieces of information that would be nice to have is the version of the AMD driver your using and a dxdiag report. Please reference the driver version by the version of the CCC that has been released. – Ramhound Feb 8 '14 at 17:53
  • @Ramhound I have now edited the original post with that information. – duxck Feb 8 '14 at 18:54
  • have you tried the 14.1 beta driver? support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/… – magicandre1981 Feb 8 '14 at 19:16
  • @magicandre1981 No I have not. That wasn't out last time I checked. I will try it. Thanks. – duxck Feb 8 '14 at 19:42
  • @magicandre1981 I have no tested out with the latest drivers, and both the 32-bit and 64-bit version of the BF4 client. Still the same problem. – duxck Feb 9 '14 at 14:17

Okay, I've sorted this for myself now. It is not a solution but more of a fix. I've noticed that if I run BF4.exe in compatibility mode with Windows 8 I don't get these memory leaks.

So if you're experiencing this as well, try the following.

  1. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 4
  2. Right click BF4.exe (or BF4_x85.exe of you run it in 32-bit)
  3. Select the Compatibility menu
  4. Check "Run this program in compatibility mode for: " and Select Windows 8.

Press OK and try it out. Hope that this sorts it for some people as well.

I have the same videocard and also experience this memory leak. The only thing that seems to help is to disable the overlays. After disabling the overlay from AMD Gaming Evolved and the one in Origin the problem hasnt presented itself yet. I also set the compatibility like duxck says, but with the overlays still turned on i still got the leak.
