I have a p4p800 deluxe with 1 gig of ddr 3200 RAM (dual channel) -\- running\nwindows xp pro. I don't overclock. Running at 800 FSB. I have PAT and\nhyperthreading enabled.\n\nI notice that when I first reboot my computer, task manager shows a "commit\ncharge" of about 72 mb.\n\nAs time goes on, that "commit charge" figure slowly creeps up. After a day\nor two it stays at around 80 mb. Then a few days later or so it might be in\nthe 90s. After a few weeks it will be around 115 mb (when the computer is\nessentially at rest). At that time, performance seems slower (windows take\nlonger to open, whether exploring my computer or opening IE).\n\nAfter a month or so (with commit charge now in the 120s when the computer is\nat rest), I'll reboot and the cycle will start over again.\n\nI have only two apps that start at start-up (nvidia task manager and the\nsoundmax drivers). Only 17 processes are shown as running in task manager\n(when I'm not doing anything on the computer, other than viewing task\nmanager). I run a lean machine.\n\nSo what is going on? Do I have a memory leak, or is this normal for XP?
