Specs: Windows 7 64 bit, 8G Ramm
I'm running W7 64 bit of a 8G ramm Dell laptop. It is crashing from ever increasing commit charge memory leaks hitting upper limits than goes black screen, and requires a hard boot to regain control. I have Ms SE running, and have a virus free machine.

I need a way to find and fix the source of the memory leaks. Anybody got program or step by step solutions for this issue?

Start with the installed system monitor. It is like the old performance monitor. See also dump logs and event viewer logs. See also sysinternals for more tools.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Personally, I do not understand what could be using memory, but not CPU (especially software), but I think I would start by disconnecting the machine from all external input/output. Then I would manually shut down non-essential programs to see if you can get a handle on this. If this was a desktop I would recommend removing all non-essential internal hardware also to be sure that say a video card is not faulty and using system memory in some unique way. Along that thought, you could monitor your GPU usage and see if that is abnormally high. If it is an internal hardware issue, then you will need to refer the problem to the factory service.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
