    Windows 10 RAM issue


    I've been dealing with it for months now. RAM fills up very fast upon doing certain things (such as using chrome to download stuff, using windows store, origin, steam, etc). Eventually, it goes up to 95-100% and of course there is nothing to show for it in the taskbar so its probably a memory leak.

    I tried using Driver Verifier, tried using those "fix win10 leaks" videos (one with registry for enabling flushing pagefile, one with network registry hack, one with making the pagefile 16gb and 3x for the max size) but to no avail.

    I don't know how to use poolmon (downloaded the dev kit) so that didn't really help either.

    Make sure you have a paging file and it's system managed. (I've got mine on E: mostly - but you can leave it on C: of course)

    I've seen 2 or 3 cases where they had no page file and even 16Gb RAM wasn't enough. If so, that's easy to fix,so start there.

    It sounds like a memory leak, but those are usually very easy to diagnose. If your memory is filling up, what process is consuming it? That's your starting point.

    Post a screenshot of Task Manager - Performance tab, showing memory info. Without that it is all just guesswork.

    Also post a shot of Resource Monitor showing the memory tab.

    And to clarify, you are saying your IN USE memory eventually goes to 100% ?

    What I mean is that that memory tab you see under resources keeps climbing up and up until it reaches 100 percent and necessitates a fresh reboot. Its easy to replicate if I use for instance Chrome to download say 20 files concurrently. The longer I continue the download, the higher the memory usage climbs. It also doesn't go down when the download ends and I close Chrome.

    It can go all the way to 100% and the computer can't even be shutdown unless I hard-reset it.

    I thought that was the resource monitor? You'll have to guide me to what you mean.

    The window you posted is Task Manager, it says so right at the top of it.

    Click here, then the memory tab and post a snip.
