[x-posting this from CTH in case someone has run into the same issue before]
I recently got a new computer which specs that should easily run starcraft 2 with no problems, yet the program is constantly freezing up, lagging and just in general causing all sorts of problems. Hopefully someone can help me out here.
My system is as below:
Not mentioned is my main hard disk which is a Crucial RealSSD C400 256G SATA3 M4 Series and this is where my OS (Windows 7) and programs (including starcraft 2) is installed. It was a fresh install with the new computer.
I am running two dell 30" monitors off this.
Sometimes when I am running sc2 the following error message pops up (though most of the time it does not):
"Your computer is running low on paged pool memory. Visual quality may degrade. To imrpove performance, some of your graphics settings have been adjusted automatically. Manually lowering your graphics settings further and restarting StarCraft II or closing other applications may also help"
Running the program with lower graphics settings doesn't help, nor does running it with no other programs running in the background.
I googled the issue and some other people appear to be having it too - also with windows 7 and high-end computers - but no clear fixes were posted. Someone suggested disabling my anti virus program (avira) which I tried but that didn't help. Another person suggested running a memory test which I did and it came up with no issues.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game but that hasn't helped.
One time when playing a game, as soon as the match ended both of my screens went bright red and I had to manually force a restart:
I followed the advice of wellju and run my computer as a standard user rather than an administrator. I have tried setting sc2 to run as administrator but that doesn't fix anything.
I haven't noticed any other problems with my computer whatsoever - although I don't play any other games, so I haven't had a chance to test it out in a similar environment.
I'm looking for any help or advice into diagnosing and fixing the issue. It's pretty annoying to have this happen on a brand new computer. I read somewhere during my googling of the problem that it could be a memory leak in the actual software affecting only some people with certain hardware but that wasn't confirmed, and it seems unlikely to be the case for such a huge company to have this problem? I don't know though. Is there a way to test for that?
Thanks for any help!
