serious memory leak - radeon 9600 pro AIW

    My PC is an ASUS A7V266 with 1GHz Athlon. The ATI multimedia S/W that came
    with my Radeon 9600 AIW seldom works for very long without hangs or crashes.
    Here is an interesting problem I discovered which might indicate some
    underlying general problem. If I run Windows System Monitor while recording
    a TV progam, SysMon shows UNUSED PHYSICAL MEMORY goes down to almost nothing
    in about 10 minutes. I tested this with two 256 Meg SDRAMS (512 total), and
    then with only a single 256 Meg SDRAM installed. This memory leak happens
    every time I record from TV or VCR etc.

    Has anybody here heard of a problem like this. How to fix it?

    TIA. Bill S.

    I record movies daily and watch nightly. Also run app which shows CPU
    use and mem load. CPU use never goes above 50% and mem use shows no
    appreciable increase during recording or viewing even if I am doing
    other things at same time. If your problem only occurs while running
    win sys monitor, I would suspect that app rather than ATI.

    My sys uses is Intel MB and P4 CPU, ATI AIW 9600XT but that should make
    no diff. BTW, software I use is the CD which came with the 9600, NO
    updates or upgrades; every time I updated or upgraded software, the
    system went bad and/or crashed.

    Hope you solve your problem.
