so i have IE and chrome installed on a lenovo laptop with 8gb ram and a i3 processor.
ive noticed recently that opening several tabs in chrome causes it to stall. So all the opened tabs never really load pages, just like you're viewing via a 56kps modem!!! after a few minutes it does load, but the sites are nearly impossible to use, the scrolling is slow as hell.
howwever the rest ofthe computer is fine.
i thought the ram may be corrupt so changed that, reinstalled flash but and cleaned up the browesrs, still no better any suggestions as to whats happening?

also it's good to keep track of I/O reads and writes... enable those columns in task manager and keep an eye out and try to minimize usage of that. also have the delta enabled as well... when stuff gets too out of hand kill it...
I know when I used WMP my Page fault delta and I/O reads were high as hell.... like 6x more then jriver media jukebox.... I got tired of my drive grinding like enrique iglaseas!!!!
also ... STAY AWAY FROM REALPLAYER/REALDOWNLOADER!!! those have high I/O as well
spoolsv.exe is pretty bad about that as well....

What is "the delta" by the way?
Posted 10 October 2012 - 12:36
The change in the number of page faults since the last update
WMP's P/F Delta stayed around 2,000-8,000 and spiked to 15,000 sometimes....
(My music would start stuttering and needing to buffer a good bit when it spikes up a lot)
JRMJ's P/F Delta stays around 250-500 and spikes to 1,300 sometimes....
(very rarely does my music stutter or need to buffer)(JRMJ also has a "play files from memory instead of disk" option but I don't use this)
and I use even larger playlists with JRMJ then I do with WMP.
Chrome spikes to 15,000 loading all 22 tabs resuming from sessions... hovers around 500.
How does yours look?

That's not too bad....

Thank you for the delta PF, it's just what I was looking for, for some reason my browser has not frozen though... but if I see something like that now I know where to check it
