    I've got a Lenovo laptop with an i5-10210U CPU @ 1.60GHz, 4 cores, GeForce MX230, and 8gb of ram, but for some reason it lags even when doing the most minor stuff. I've realized that it shoots up to around 90% when doing some more heavy stuff. The laptop is around 4 months old. I'm not running any antivirus except for windows defender.

    Please let me know if this is not the right place to ask.

  2. Unknown Constant RAM Usage

    Hi,

    To explore more on RAM usage by processes and see in-depth I advise you to open the Resource monitor, please follow the below steps.

    Step 1 :

    Open Task Manager

    Step 2:

    Click on Performance

    Step 3:

    At the bottom click on Open Resource Monitor

    Step 4:

    Under Resource Monitor windows click on Memory

    Step 5:

    Click on Working Set to list the top process utilizing the more RAM and then evaluate RAM usage.

  3. High ram usage due to service hosts

    On restarting the PC the ram usage is of about 55-60% which will eventually rise to 90% (in 45min) of memory on idle and not even a single application running

    System and compressed memory high disk usage during file copy

    Thank you Amarjeet_Paul.

    I spent many more hours than I had hoped this past week reading and trying others' suggestions from this community on how to reduce high RAM usage due to ntoskrnl.exe. The "System and compressed memory" process remained the top consumer of RAM, using 500-900MB,
    among all other processes running. I deemed it to be the likely culprit in making my computer use frustratingly sluggish. After completing your
    third step, steps 1. & 2. provided no improvement in my case, the "System and compressed memory" process RAM usage has plummeted from the top of the Task Manager Process list to the bottom, running at a remarkable 0.1MB! That's a whole lot less than
    1% of the targeted process' gluttony. You're hired! Ps. I'll be keeping an eye on the process' use as I get back to normal operations, and be back if it floats to high in the list. Or if the registry fix you suggested has compromised use in any way. Please
    explain in simple terms what the insertion of your registry modification is doing.

    Thanks again.

    Geoff
