    Constant low memory warnings after years of no problems.


    I've had this laptop for about 2 years now, with Windows 10 on it. It has 16GB of RAM, and has performed well for things like 3D modeling and rendering videos. However, today I tried to render a video which should've taken 3 minutes, and it was taking 2 hours!

    I tried running CC cleaner and quickly got a BSOD. After restarting, if I try to run CC Clearner I get the low memory error, and rendering videos is still taking way too long. I've tried a system restore to earlier this month, didn't help. Keep in mind, this wasn't happening 2 days ago.

    I've checked resmon, and while the memory usage looks low, the hard faults/sec is almost constantly off the chart.

    Did I fry my RAM or something? =( Is there anything I can do?

    Didn't have to actually "Fry" it but may develop connection problems.
    Some ways to check RAM:
    how to perform a RAM memory scan test on windows 10 - YouTube

    MemTest86 - Offical Site of the x86 Memory Testing Tool

    If tests show problem, first thing I do is to take RAM sticks out, gently clean contacts with clean piece of ordinary printing paper making sure I'm grounded to some large metal piece or sink valve and put them back.
