    I tried swapping around the RAM slots but nothing seems to do anything

    Don't know if this means anything, but the committed memory is 23/23 and usage is now at 7.1GB with nothing running (except performance monitor and tskmgr)

    It become obvious that's a memory leak problem. there are tools to diagnose that as others highlighted previously.I prefer to use Windows Performance Toolkit, you can download here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...d/adk-install- Start Windows Performance Recorder and record a trace for 5 min to 10 min (to collect the max of data) with these values https://justpaste.it/1ewmrShare with us your trace file and we will analyze it.

    The low on memory warning is rather misleading. It does not mean there is a shortage of RAM and Windows doesn't even have a warning for this. The warning occurs when the commit charge is approaching the commit limit. Often this is caused by either a non existent or too small pagefile but there are other causes.

    Post a screenshot of Task Manager- Performance tab, showing memory information. This has important information not easily obtained elsewhere. Resource monitor does not have it.

    Good day.

    Make sure ram sticks aren't dislodged in their slots. Take all them out and reseat them again.

    Before i saw your post, it let me back into Windows, but i could smell something burning and sure enough it was the ram, so I replaced it with a 16gb module and everything seems fine.
