    High RAM usage issue.


    Starting a couple months back, I noticed my surface pro 4 was considerably slower and would need to reload webpages a lot more frequently and stuff like that. I suspected there would be some issues with the RAM so I checked the resources monitor a noticed of 50% do the RAM memory was being used when idle. I tried everything with no luck so I just did a factory reset of the device, deleting every installed program, files and setting changes.

    When I booted the system back up and checked, nothing had changed.

    Here's the memory usage right now as I'm typing. Consider the only things open right now are this tab of chrome and the resources monitor.

    High RAM Usage in Win10


    Thanks alot for your answers:
    @PolarNettles: yes I have a Gigabyte Z170x Gaming-3 Mainboard with Killer E2200 ethernet controller. Are there known issues with this controller?
    @Spectrum: I downloaded the program and got this screen

    is this of some use for you?

    @AddRAM: RAMMap did nothing as I emptied all the lists. At first boot RAM usage is normal, but when I work or play some time it kinda stacks up the RAM. Snip of the resource monitor

    high ram usage windows 10 while gaming

    Hi Abhay,



    Welcome and thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.



    I would like to inform that usually when you are trying to play games RAM usage will be high.



    To see if any other Third party software are accessing high usage of RAM, I suggest you to perform the below troubleshooting steps and check.

    Method 1: Run System Maintenance Troubleshooter

    Follow the steps given below:


    • Type Troubleshooting in the Search box from the desktop.

    • Select the Troubleshooting option.

    • Select View All option and select the
      System Maintenance
      .

    • Click on Next to perform the System Maintenance troubleshooter and follow the steps.


    Method 2: If the issue still persists then,

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode.


    • Type Settings in the search box on the desktop, select
      Settings.

    • Here select Change pc settings and then
      General.

    • Scroll down to Advanced startup, click
      Restart now.

    • Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, and Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart, select Safe mode and then press
      Enter.


    Step 2: Perform Clean boot to avoid any third party software conflict.

    Disclaimer: Putting your system in
    Clean Boot
    state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows



    (Applies to Windows 10 as well)

    Refer to "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.
