Windows 10: Bad performance / RAM usage 25-30% with nothing open
Bad performance / RAM usage 25-30% with nothing open
So i built a pc 2 months ago. everything was running perfectly till 1 week ago. Everything is slow now. The ram usage is at 25-30% .
it takes so long to open a web page , videos keep stopping and gaming is almost impossible https://i.imgur.com/7BsjmRk.png https://i.imgur.com/PR1vMMX.png
I tried everything i found on google (didn't fix it ) , Scanned with 4 different antivirus programs but nothing found
However when i start the pc in safemode(no network) the ram usage goes to 10-11 %
I think this happend after an update but i'm not so sure
Quick look at your screen capture indicated only 1 of 4 memory slots is used.
I will assume that you have 4 memory sticks. The question why only 1 is in use?
1. Remove all memory stick and re-insert them carefully. Reboot to see if you have all 4 memory sticks in use. If you see 8 GB in use, you are done.
2. Take a pair of memory, insert them into slot 1 and 3. Reboot and note whether you can see 4 GB.
3. Take a pair of memory, insert them into slot 2 and 4. Reboot and note whether you can see 4 GB.
4. Do the same with the second pair of memory stick. Please note whether you can see 4 GB.
5. You can try one memory stick at a time at one slot. Please note whether you can see 2 GB.
The above tests will tell us whether the memory stick(s) is bad or the slots are bad!
It is a lot of work! Good luck, my friend!
Check your BIOS, are they at version B.5 (released 2016-02-26)? The release note from the last four update, B2, B3, B4 and B5 indicated they improved memory compatibility.
No , i have 1stick of 8GB ,forgot to mention that sorry
And my bios is updated

Can you find in Task Manager what is using most RAM ?
as you can see in the first screenshot, task manager shows a total usage of 207 mb. That can't be 25% of 8GB ram
Not there. Here:
There's also menu on right click on any process. Turn on "More details"
1.8 GB usage on a system with 8 GB RAM does not seem unusual or problematic. And there is 5.9 GB available. Even if usage was high (which does not appear to be case) it would not cause a problem unless there was a shortage, which there clearly is not.
There is a widespread misconception that the more memory a computer uses the slower it will be. The opposite is true, unless there is a shortage.
I don't think the problem is memory related.
That's what I was thinking, I can use almost 100% of memory and still won't be noticeable slowdowns.
Try to perform some cleanup, for starters, run CMD as admin and enter:
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
when it finishes, enter this one and select to clean everything:
cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & cleanmgr /sagerun:65535
msconfig - disable all 3rd party software startups
ramMap, file explorer, nothing looks fishy
scanned system with ESET, malwarebytes, hitman
clean system with advanced system care and CC cleaner.
nothing helps a bit
just cant figure out...
so like the title says i have been using Brinks method to reset Data Usage by deleting the SRU folder contents , now somehow the SRU folder decided to stop rebuilding data , so i would like of all who has any sort of knowledge about this topic to...
I just recently installed Windows 10 on my Dell Inspiron Laptop and so far I am not impressed at all - in fact, I am very seriously debating one of two actions - re-install Windows 7 or switching to an entirely different OS.
Hi, thank you for taking a look at this.
Since I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 (who knows when, within the week of first release) I've had a plethora of issues, and recently I found the source of the problem. My computer spikes to 100%...
