  2. Idle ram usage at around 8GB!

    ive seen similair threads, and have tweaked the registry values in similair youtube videos.

    just from a normal startup I peak at around 60% used ram out 16 gb installed ( 10ish gb).

    most of the ram is being used by system prcesses mostly reading anywhere from.1-.2 % for each process. I am very confused what is causing this and would like to know if anyone else has seen an issue like this?

    after registry tweaks dont aolve, is my next step to reinstall windows? Is adding more ram viable instead? Thanks for taking the time everyone

    TLDR: machine idles at 8gb ram usage before and after registry tweaks, whats is my next step in diagnosing the cause?

    High RAM usage while idle


    Hello,
    Basically I noticed that my PC has a lot of RAM used but no program is using the RAM - see attached screenshots. Obviously it doesnt really affect me until I launch a game: eg GTA 5 which before ran happily at 60 and is now stuck on less than 1 FPS when I get into the game (even after spending like 20 minutes in lag hell to try to reduce all the settings to the lowest)
    However Rainbow Six Siege runs at 120 FPS with no issues, so GTA may be an isolated incident.

    (Also important to note I only have 8Gb of RAM, even though it says */16.0GB for the committed memory)

    High RAM usage while idle


    Harna, HI! One screenshot you might want to look at is the detail view in Task Manager. Include the two columns I have indicated and see if you notice anything unusual. You can sort the columns descending to get the highest usage at top of display. Something may jump out at you. BTW, the mem column on Processes shows a quick snapshot of the last usage of memory, not current usage. See what you find. Hover the mouse over the column name to see an explanation of the column.
