  1. Standby ram which causes pc freeze


    I recently installed new windows due to a standby ram bug which makes my pc freeze and i have to restart. I reinstalled it and after i downloaded gpu drivers, discord, applied some tweaks in windows and when i opened epic games launcher my pc hanged after a few seconds and i had to restart. So i opened task manager and in resource monitor i saw standby ram was increasing. Currently its now on 2583MB. Anybody knows about how much should i have standby ram and its permanent solution. I have 8gb RAM.

  2. Standby Memory Causes Crashes

    Hello Aileen,

    I did in fact post the question with more detailed specifics on the Microsoft Technet forums here:

    See Thread Here

    So far no one has been able to turn standby memory off and the option you suggested, turning it off from the BIOS/UEFI settings, there is no such setting. I don't need the computer manufacturer to run through all the possible screens of the BIOS and determine
    that such an option does not exist.

    When a game or a program wishes to write to RAM, the amount of FREE space is reported to the program, and only if the amount of FREE space is sufficient, does the program WRITE to RAM, else it throws an out of memory error. Seeing that standby memory is
    only freed if the program WRITES to RAM, the amount of free space would be less that free space + standby memory so the program will NEVER write to RAM if the standby memory is there. Standby memory is not free memory!!! Why on God's good earth would I want
    to keep something loaded into RAM after I close it instead of freeing the memory for the next application I run?

    It's not too hard to ask. When a program is closed, GET IT OUT OF RAM. Leave my RAM FREE. The hypothetical benefits of preloading only work for people who have less than 8GB of programs (the amount of RAM they have installed). The non facebook/youtube junkies
    who have more than 8GB of programs installed (the graphic designers, the gamers, the programmers) need the RAM free!! How much more will I have to crash and black screen before Microsoft realizes its mistake? When a program is done with a block of memory,
    FREE IT GODDAMMIT

    Sincerely,

    A frustrated gamer/programmer.

    Windows 10 hangs/freezes on Restart

    If this happens even during installation, that means that it is probably a hardware issue. To troubleshoot the problem, I suggest doing the following steps:

    1. Install Hard Disk Sentinel and use it to check your HDD/SSD for problems.
    2. Use MemTest to make sure that your RAM is ok. Here is a how to - guide.

    After You done these two steps, give a feedback of the results.

    Releasing Standby memory

    This is the first I have heard of any issues with Standby list memory causing issues outside of games.
    I know there were a lot of reports around 1809 of games having issues where the standby list didn't release memory and games would stutter. There are a few programs that can clear up this issue. I have used both and they do work but I only used it for games, never noticed any issues in windows applications.
    ISLC (Intelligent standby list cleaner) by Wagnarsoft and Processlasso by Bitsum can clear the standby list automatically.
