    I suspect the culprit to be System and Compressed memory but haven't found any fixes that I haven't tried yet online.

    Hi, unfortunately your screenshots don't expand so I can't see them.

    Question is, what triggers System and compressed memory to use excessive resources, if that's what's happening.

    There are several threads relating to this on the forum - just search for
    "System and compressed memory"

    Causes are various, the most recent being Chrome using VRAM when accessing multiple pages esp. Facebook.
