Windows 10 Ram Usage (fixed)




I have had this problem for a couple of weeks now and I couldn't really find anything that helps. My ram usage is just crazy. I have 16 gigs of DDR4 Memory and the task manager tells me I use 85% to 95% at random.
When I was running it on Windows 7 for ~2 weeks everything was just fine. Also restarting fixes it until it happens again, but I don't want to restart my Computer everytime.
Here's a screenshot of my task manager when it occurs:

Every programm's usage doesn't add up to 16 GB (counting the ones further down the list aswell.) :V







Download Mawarebytes Anti-Maware and search for any Virus, maybe It might be a virus that is consuming all the RAM, leaving the PC slow.

All versions of Windows NT (XP and after) should have the "System" task, as it is the NT Kernel. Mine only uses 600KB (Windows 7). I'm almost sure Windows 8/10 should use less. Like above, I would say it's wise to check for viruses. If there's none, maybe check your system integrity or the services.
16GB? Are you sure your computer is really with that amount of RAM? First check on system information if your computer is really with that amount of RAM, because looking at the process list there's absolutely no reason to you have such high memory usage, unless if you're using like 2GB of RAM.

And second, it's normal to the System process use that high amount of RAM on Windows 10. Before putting programs's idle memory to pagefile, which has slower load, Windows now is compressing the RAM and putting on System process for quicker access, so you don't have to worry there.

I put 4 sticks of 4 GB Ram in myself.

But it actually closes programms when it occurs.

Edit:
Checked for Viruses, found nothing.







I've had this problem as well some time again, although with only 4 GB of RAM. Windows 10 kept randomly telling me that I was out of RAM, often connected to Firefox crashing. The data in the Task Manager only added up to about 2,5 GB, though. I don't know what was the problem there, since that had never happened before. The problem eventually disappeared. I don't know if that was because I did something specific, but I at least cleared many of my tabs in my Firefox (since I'm one of the people who keeps their tabs open forever, therefore accumulating more and more garbage and therefore RAM usage in Firefox).

I'm not sure, but I suppose this might even be a Windows 10 bug. As long as your system doesn't show an error dialog, you're probably fine, though.
Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!



I guess I fixed it (well Medic did). In my case it might have been a faulty driver, the next days will show if it helped.
(Asrock ships faulty dirvers for Killer LAN on their CDs, so be careful V:)
