  1. RAM Memory half being used by system/unknown application -Windows 10


    Hello,

    I need some help/solution for this!
    My problem is the next... I used to Windows 7 and it run well until It got infected so I formated it to Windows 10 (on Feb) and it run like you will expect from a recent formated PC, then I noticed it was almost using 50% of the ram... in Windows 7 it used to just use 300-500MB maximum 1 GB. So it's really weird, I didn't give it attention and continued my life, until now... My PC is sometimes struggling to open some programs and the ram is going up to 80% of 4 GB, I know Windows 10 eats a lot of memory in a lot of cases but this is incredible, I checked Task Manager and some Process explorer (I also tried sysinternals one) and none of them showed something "unusual" everything was ok, I used calculator to make sure every process was consuming what it says "80% of 4 GB Ram" but it wasn't... it was just 1 GB of ram being used.

    When I'm playing some low spec games because my PC is crap, some of them started to get lag spikes, which is really annoying.

    I would like some help I can give you any information!

    Thanks,

    System and Compressed memory using a lot of RAM

    As seen here, it appears that I am suffering from memory leak and most notably, System and Compressed Memory is using far too much memory. I have 8gb RAM and never had over 25% memory usage until i upgraded to windows 10.

    I've tried following the steps on this site: Windows 10 high memory usage (unknown reason)

    By using poolmon I have found that the pooltag "Rtlw" is using an excessive amount of memory, but I for some reason cannot find the driver associated with Rtlw to update

    Windows 10 & Problems With System and Compressed Memory Taking Up All Of The Computer's RAM

    Ive also already ran the Memory Diagnostic Tool hundreds to thousands of times every time System and Compressed Memory is shown to be using all of my computer's RAM/Memory and it too has stated that there are no problems with my computer's Memory/RAM either.
    I've also ran it after many restarts to clear up System and Compressed Memory so that it isn't using all of my computer's Memory/RAM until the next time it does it again and again. It's always after a few hours of use with the computer and it doesn't matter
    if anything is being used or if the computer is idle. It is even worse directly after waking the computer up from it going to Windows 10's login screen or should I say the pictured (screensaver) screen.

    I can easily post a screenshot taken with my iPad of the fact that the Memory Diagnostic Tool shows that there is no memory problems whatsoever either!

    Installed Memory(RAM)

    Hi Jyotirmay,

    Base on the screenshot you provided, it means you have a 3.5 GB usable memory out of the 4 GB memory installed. The amount of usable memory that you see is not exact amount. Usable memory is a calculated amount of the total physical memory minus "hardware
    reserved" memory.

    The reduction of the available system memory depends on the configuration of the following:

    • The devices that are installed in the computer and the memory that is reserved by those devices.
    • The ability of the motherboard to handle memory.
    • The System BIOS version and settings.
    • The version of Windows that is installed
    • Other system settings.

    If you find that much of your RAM is regularly being used, consider adding more RAM if possible, especially if your PC only has 1 or 2 gigabytes (GB) of RAM. To learn more about what kind of RAM your PC model uses, first look at the memory info in Task Manager,
    and then visit the PC manufacturer’s website for more specific info.

    • Type of memory (RAM) PC uses
    • RAM speed
    • Memory slots used

    Here’s some info about the minimum memory requirements for Windows 10:

    • Windows 10 (32-bit) can run on a PC with 1 GB of RAM, but it runs better with 2 GB. For better performance, add memory so you have 3 GB or more.
    • Windows 10 (64-bit) can run on a PC with 2 GB of RAM, but it runs better with 4 GB. For better performance, add memory so you have 6 GB or more.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
