    for the last month or so I have been getting loads of total lock-ups requiring hard reset of PC, CTDs, OoM errors & individual page crashes + looooong load times on sites like Amazon, MSN & Outlook.
    This occurs with extensions disabled or enabled; VPN On or Off; Ad-Block on or off.
    Latest drivers on the OS (all Nov 18). Nvidia driver versions seem to make a difference but none solve the issues 100%.
    Using -disable-gpu in CL has no effect
    Hardware is 100%, RAM etc all pass stress testing.
    Visiting same sites on Win7 x64 with same Opera version is error-free.

    Anyone have a solution for this?

  • Sorry, most of us aren't techs - what's a CTD? I'll presume "OoM" means out of memory ...

  • @sgunhouse said in Opera CTDs:


    Crash to desktop maybe? As in, a crash that kills the whole browser, maybe?

  • Thanks for replies.
    CTD = crash to desktop
    OoM = Out of Memory

    Was in a hurry so didn't translate, but...kinda worrying that a tech forum doesn't know tech acronyms 😞 Do Opera staff never read these posts?

    Opera will CTD randomly, sometimes restarting sometimes not; I get 'Page Crashed' msg; I get 'Out of Memory' msg. (ie operas own preformatted error tabs with option to try reloading.)
    Having less than 20% of RAM in use (16gb total) I find it hard to understand why I'd get an OoM error. I don't think changing the RAM heap via the registry would help but I've not tried it....

    I'm inclined to suspect that W10 has patched something that has broken Opera memory management but I'm guessing.

  • Yes, Opera people read these forums and eventually may reply

  • The problems happen in a clean profile?

  • What build of Win 10 are you using?
