    More memory issues...


    Looks like it wasn't fixed. After a few days of replacing the ram with a sixteen gig model, I was using 91 percent of it, idle.
    Here's my old post for some info: mesage on windows Solved - Windows 10 Forums
    I seriously don't understand why my computer is taking 16 gb of memory while doing nothing.

    Memory leak? See my post #5 and try researching the topic on the forum, and post #13. Have you attempted to follow those diagnostic suggestions?

    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.
    Smell something burning is a "HUGE" problem. We are unable to give a lot of help because we are not there.

    Visually check the ram and motherboard for any signs of what is causing the burn smell.
    You might have to use a magnifying glass. Normally once something like this happens you have a bigger problem that cost a lot to fix/replace things.

    Two things:
    Memory leak thing: More memory issues...-capture.png this is taken when my usage is about 30 idle. Will post when it is at 90 later.
    RAM and Motherboard analysis: The ram had a chip where it was black and burnt. The motherboard showed no signs of burning, and the new ram showed no burn marks around anything.

    Did you take your trace with "Heap Usage" and "VirtualAlloc usage" providers ?

    If not you have to take another trace with these providers enabled, we need to see what's happening with memory allocation...
