    Default Memory & System Handle count constantly increasing

    Hi all,

    I've upgraded my PC and reinstalled the OS; spec shown below. The only difference is that now, my OS is on an SSD drive (OCZ Petrol).

    However, I noted that my memory usage was constantly increasing; even with only background apps running, I was up to 7GB. When I check Task Manager, I see that the "System" process's "Handles" count is constantly increasing. As I speak, it's almost at 1,000,000; last night I saw it get up to 4,000,000.

    I've reinstalled the latest copy of system drivers from the ASRock site. One think I note is that, in Device Manager, under "Computer", the generic sounding "ACPI x64-based PC" is shown. Should that show my motherboard instead?

    P.

    RESOLVED

    I think I sorted this one out. It was either 1 of 2 things:

    1. The 60GB SSD was plugged into a SATA 2 port. I plugged it into a SATA 3 one.
    2. My CDROM drive was plugged into power securely, but the SATA cable wasnt'. I double checked this.
