    RAM usage problem after "long" use


    Hello everyone
    since I have this new computer, I have several problems including that excessive use of ram
    The screen is capture after a few hours of using the PC with browser closed, it seems to me an too high usage of ram! if i restart the computer the usage back down but then gets up ever
    when I use chrome then, with many tabs risk even reach 95% of ram used
    What uses the ram then? i don't view any "bad" process in task manager...
    I read that W10 uses a lot of RAM but I did not think so much
    I hope that you can help me, sorry for my english
    Thanks

    The problem is the 3.1GB non-paged pool. This is normally a driver problem but I don't know more than that. Hopefully someone else can assist.

    No, it isn't WIn10, you can see the main offenders are bitTorrent and Spotify, though I can't see below that.

    I also was going to say drivers, but it could be the programs themselves, I'm not sure.

    Definitely update those drivers... if you're using MSI motherboard, go to their website for the drivers

    if i close spotify and sync nothing changes.. in task manager there are not application that use too much ram, or at least that's what it says windows
    all of driver are already updated

    Just to confirm, you went to the MSI website and got Windows 10 specific drivers for your system? Also update the BIOS too.

    And what happens if you kill the BitTorrent and all the Spotify processes? Can you see any change in doing this?

    What are below those first processes that you posted in your picture? Is there a program or programs that are hogging resources by duplicating itself over and over again lower down on that list (I've personally seen Java do this, for example)?

    Is your GPU card updated from Nvidia?

    Everything I've read indicates there is a driver memory leak. Make sure Windows itself is updated. And these two tutorials below can't hurt:

    DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Windows 10 Forums
    -next, do this one-
    SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    I used to have the similar problem and I have fixed it. Use process explorer, enable non-paged pool column and sort it you will see what process use excessive non-paged pool memory. In my case it's kaspersky antivirus.

    All of my driver are already updated, the msi update utility doesn't show me any update
    I can close torrent and spotify but nothing change
    Only one process, chrome.. but when i close it, the problem persist

    That motherboard had mem problems. did you update the bios yet?

    I see you have at least 3 Spotify .exe files, are there more? aren't you only supposed to have one? Are there any other duplicates? (things like chrome and antivirus often have similar processes open, but in that case, it's normal)

    You might as well get these two commands out of the way: DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Windows 10 Forums
    -and then-
    SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
