  1. Memory leak?


    Hello. As the title states, my pc idles at around 2gb (mostly 1,8-1,9gb). Tried resetting, updating windows, drivers , nothing helps. What could be the issue?
    Edit1: Opening discord adds another 1 GB. Opening league of legends adds 2 GBs. (Game runs on very low capped on 60 fps)

    Memory leak issue

    The term "memory leak" means that an application fails to return all its RAM to the operating system when it exits. The leftover RAM is unusable to the operating system.

    Step one is to identify the application that is leaking memory. Step two is to contact the application's developers and provide as much detailed data on the memory leak as you can. For example: which processes are still in RAM after the application exits
    and how much RAM they occupy. Application developers never want their applications to leak memory and they will be grateful for the details you provide, particularly if they can replicate the leak on their own computers.

    Possible Memory Leaks in Windows 10

    A memory leak occurs when an application closes and fails to release all its RAM back to the operating system.

    The first step in dealing with a memory leak is to determine which application is leaking memory.

    The next step is to contact that application's technical support with complete details of the memory leak, since the developers will want to fix the problem ASAP.

    Memory leak?

    Power Toys run memory leak

    There's nothing that anyone here can do about a memory leak. Only the developers of leaking software can fix leaks in their software. This is a community forum. I suggest posting your issue on MSDN.
