  1. My PC not using all possible RAM.


    Hello people!

    Im having an issue for quite a while with my Windows 10 PCspecialist PC.


    The RAM has been limited by 2.9GB and i've tried looking up every solution and nothing works.

    I even spoke to a Curry's PC World employee and they said it could just be the system taking it, I can see why he said that but I wouldn't expect it to be a whole 2.9 Gigabytes.


    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    :)

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.

    Desktop using 23,9/24GB of RAM

    So recently I installed an additional 16GB of RAM in my pc and everything was runnning fine. I upgraded to Windows 10 and installed all the programs I use etc.
    Now my pc was always using around 30% of the ram, however it soon became 60% and now it is using 99% from startup.

    Here are some steps I already performed with the results from those steps:

    • I ran a virus scan, with nothing showing up
    • I checked my startup programs, nothing wrong with it in my eyes
    • I ran sfc /scannow which showed up with nothing aswell
    • I ran Kasperky AntiRootKit, nothing showed up
    • I ran Malwarebytes which showed up clean
    • I ran SuperAntiSpyware professional, nothing showed up(except some cookies which are deleted now
    • I ran WPR -cancel in CMD, No trace profiles running


    The programs that start when my PC boots are:

    I hope anyone of you can help me find a solution to this. I know windows10 leverages memory better than windows 7, but it shouldnt be 100% use even when idle.

    Here is a screenshot of my resource monitor:

    My PC not using all possible RAM.

    Where is my RAM?

    Hi,





    Cache stored on Windows
    10 restricts your PC
    from working efficiently. If there is a continuous and high volume of cached read requests from any process or from any
    driver, the working set (the number of memory pages in the physical RAM)
    size of the system file cache will grow to meet this demand.
    The system file cache consumes the physical RAM. Therefore, sufficient
    amounts of physical RAM are not available for other processes.

    On 64-bit versions of Windows operating systems, the size of the virtual address range is typically larger than
    the physical RAM. In this situation, the working set for the system file cache can increase to consume most of the physical RAM.

    We suggest that you clear caches on your Windows 10 computer to resolve memory usage issues. Few things that you
    can try clearing are the Windows Store and Temp Files caches. Check out the steps below:

    How to clear the Windows Store cache:


    • Press
      Windows + R keys to open a
      Run prompt.

    • Type
      WSReset.exe
      into the text box, then click
      OK.

    How to clear the Temp Files cache:


    • Open the
      Start menu.

    • Type
      Disk Cleanup, then
      press Enter.

    • Under the
      Disk Cleanup tab, uncheck all boxes except for
      Temporary Files, then click
      OK.

    Hope the above information helps.
    Feel free to contact us if you need further help.
