    What is eating away my RAM?


    So I have a 8 GB RAM on my laptop and I noticed that 3.7 GB were already used and only a little over 4 GB was free to use. I wasn't also getting good performance in video games. And I also noticed my battery wasn't holding up for more that a few hours and it was declining steadily even if my laptop was idle. So, I followed these things -

    1) Turned off notifications.

    2) Turned off Game Bar.

    3) Turned off all visual effects in Control Panel for better performance.

    I don't know whether these have any effect or not but next I did these -

    4) Removed a lot of bloatware using PowerShell following this guide.

    5) Disabled most of the tings in Startup tab of Task Manager.

    6) Disabled all non-Microsoft related services in the services tab of msconfig run command.

    I noticed that now my total RAM used was 2.7 GB and somehow 1 entire GB was free now. But after restarting my laptop, I found that used RAM was back to 3.5 GB. Even after disabling all those services at startup, my RAM doesn't free up and I don't think my battery holds up either.

    Whats really eating my RAM and what can I do to fix it? Someone, please help.

    Win-10 eating up ram ?...

    I know there is a problem with Google chrome eating up all the ram on my Macs.

    I think it is doing the same thing on my Win-10 computers.

    As soon as I close Google chrome browser my ram usage drops back down to normal.

    How can I print out the list of running processes ?

    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.
