    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

    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.

    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

    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
