Okay, this problem is really starting to piss me off. If you are running Windows 7 then I ask you how much memory Audiodg.exe is using on your pc. Well, mine starts off as 13mb of memory usage, but it slowly uses more AND MORE AND MORE RAM. I restarted my computer yesterday, it's been about 26 hours since I did and now audiodg.exe is using 3.9GB of memory (THAT ISN'T RIGHT, IS IT?) so there is clearly a big memory leak going on.
The solutions I tried, but didn't fix anything:
1. Install VIA Sound dock's latest drivers
2. Tried installing a hotfix from microsoft that was supposed to fix it, but didn't do anything.
I'm hoping some of you can come up with some ideas. Here are some specs that will probably be important to solving the problem.
MOBO: ASUS M4N98TD EVO
Speakers: Logitech 5.1 Surround Sound
Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 955
GPU: GTX 570
OS: Windows 7 Professional x64 (No SP1, because it won't let me install it for some reason, I get an "Element not found" error when I try to install it, I also can't install IE9 for some reason. Both give me an error code of 490. But that's another problem I'm trying to figure out)
Oh, and also the copy of Win7 is legit, got it as a free copy from my College's MSDN partnership.
Well, if anyone has any ideas, shoot, I would appreciate something I can try. I've basically lost all hope at this moment, so suggestions are appreciated.
