Question RTX 3070 Smart Access Memory and Resizable Bar problem.

Aug 6, 2022
Hello everyone.

After activating SAM (Smart Access Memory) on my RTX 3070 video card and Ryzen 5 3600 system and running the system, the screenshot goes away after Windows runs for a while. After turning off SAM, there is no problem, Windows continues to work. The same goes for the resizable bar. Video card version is up to date, motherboard BIOS is up to date. Why does this problem occur?

Motherboard: ROG Strix B550 F Gaming Wifi
Video card: ROG Strix RTX 3070 OC V2
Processor: Ryzen 5 3600
OS: Windows 10


Win 11 Master
do you know if your hdd is set up as MBR or GPT?

If you not sure, open command prompt (admin)
type diskpart and press enter
type list disk and press enter
if your boot drive is GPT it will have an asterix under header

One cause of black screen is your PC is set up as MBR. Its possible to swap, but I would confirm it first.
