    make windows 10 keep ram reserve?


    can we make windows 10 to hold some ram reserve always free for normal system functionality? i am using fl studio and kontakt 5, and im experiencing freezes of laptop sometimes because of hdd paging after all ram is used.

    and when you click Change.

    Please also complete your specs (see mine for example) and post a screenshot of your task manager
    a. when your system is idle
    b. when it is struggling as you describe

    This should give anyone looking at this a lot more info.
    Thanks.

    It occurs:
    1. I am in FL Studio, I already used 90% of RAM, and it probably started paging on HDD.
    2. I am adding new instrument sample which would usualy take 500mb to 2GB RAM.
    3. Instrument is being loaded half way, and gets stuck.
    4. Mouse cursor, or keyboard is not responsible, but it is responsible, why, it is inside next step.
    5. If I press caps lock, it will turn on after minute or two or 5 or 10 minutes, if I move mouse it will move a bit after 1,2,5,10,20 minutes.

    Note: Loading an instrument sample inside Kontakt 5 uses HDD to load patch inside RAM memory.

    My guess here is, I have used all RAM, I have overloaded HDD usage on loading patch + acting as ram (aka paging file), this caused me to have that hang explained in 5 steps?

    Am I correct in my guess, or I am incorrect in my guess?

    Thanks.

    You can try CleanMem Free that will give you about 10% of memory back.

    But since your problem is more about responsiveness, you should try Bitsum.

    Install more RAM into your system. This is honestly your only solution. You are trying to use more RAM then your system can handle. Everything you do is just going to end in failure. You need more RAM.

    I have 8gb RAM. Idle, I'm using almost 3Gb with a browser open. A video card may grab system RAM.

    If you're using memory intensive processes, as @logicearth says, you need more RAM- you've only 4Gb - at least I assume that's what your specs mean. However, more RAM won't help unless your OS is 64 bits.

    See your resource monitor (you can open that from your task manager).
