    Memory 99%

    Okay so lately I have been noticing my Memory spike up to 80% then 90% and higher up to 99% even while playing a game. Even after closing said game the memory would keep spiking. It feels like the longer the computer is on, the more it keeps increasing in Memory load. I have very little knowledge of computers...

    I updated my graphic card drivers already. Here a few screenshots of my problem:

    Also, I went away from my computer for maybe 30 minutes to an hour, and this is what I came back to (apologies for bad picture quality, but I think you can see the problem) it was completely frozen and there were weird things on my desktop, windows wrongly cascading and whatnot, I couldn't do anything so I forcefully shut it down and restarted it. Now it works but I wonder for how long?) :

    I'd also like to mention that this is a 2000 computer and it's BRAND NEW, here are the specs:

    Graphics Card: GTX 980.

    Please help me :/

    Your non-paged pool seems to be the issue, it is normally 100-200MB. Something is not releasing the pool after closing.

    Does this problem happen when you have not yet opened any program?
    Does this problem happen in safe mode?

    Check in resource monitor for pagefaults in the 'Memory' tab, you can find resource monitor below in the 'Performance' tab in task manager,.

    Please fill in your system specs
    Please follow this tutorial and download the tool. The tool will give you detailed information about your system specs, please fill in your system specs more completely including PSU, cooling and other used stuff like mouse, keyboard, monitor, case, etc.
    The PSU, cooling and other stuff are NOT mentioned in the tool.
    How to fill in your system specs:

    A high non paged pool value would normally be caused by a driver problem, possibly malware. Not likely a process. Sorry I can't help further.

    Indeed, but there are many programs who use drivers.
