    All of my memory being used? Says 800 mb while i have 12 gigs.


    Hello guys,

    I'm new to this forum though i wanted to ask something.
    So it tells me that 800 mb of my memory is being used, while i have 12 gig on the graph it shows fully used + pc is being really slow because of it.

    Does anyone know why this is happening?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello nuro0o

    You need to look on the Performance tab of Task manager and check the Memory data. Post a screenshot of that and we can see what is going on. You may have a very large non-paged pool which would suggest you have a driver leaking memory somewhere.

    That 875 MB represents only memory used by processes running under the nuroOo account. There are other processes whose usage is not included and there are some very significant users of memory that are not processes. We need to a screenshot of the performance tab.

    Thanks for the answers, here is a picture of my performance tab

    Though the only programs i'm running is Skype, Chrome,Line, Steam and curse. Does that really use 7 GB? Yesterday it was on 10,9GB while everything was closed

    As I suspected your non-paged pool is using up all the memory. This usually happens when a driver is faulty and causes memory leakage.

    It is now a case of finding which driver is causing it and updating it. Often it can be a network card, I would start there.

    Thank you very much! I'll do my best to find it and update it!

    I googled some things about Memory leak on windows 10 and the problem instantly came up. Killer network apperantly has this problem. So i uninstalled it and installed another version from their site, apperantly this fixed it.

    Thank you very much.
