  1. Windows 10 is using to much of my RAM, how do I fix it?


    So I got some RAM today and I installed it, it was a Patriot 4GB one. Once I finished installing it and booted up my computer, it was fine. But then when I went to System to see if my RAM really did install is see that it says I have 8.00 GB installed, so I know it worked but then I saw next to it that it said I only have 3.49 usable, that's a little RAM! It's using to much of it! I was wondering if there is a way to change how much it uses, I know it uses some RAM for the hardware but not that much! If you comment or view this post, thank you for the advice and tips! *Biggrin

    My PC is using too much RAM but not to much "disk" and is very slow

    Hi Akuma,

    Click your Start Button, type cmd, then in the resulting list, right click Command Prompt and choose 'Run as Administrator'

    Run these commands one at a time:

    (to run these commands, copy the command, then in Command Prompt, right click to paste, then hit Enter)

    sfc /scannow

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    When finished, close Command Prompt and restart your PC

  3. My PC is using too much RAM but not to much "disk" and is very slow

    Don't know if this is the correct place to post this, but anyways.

    Hello, since i updated to Windows 10 my pc has become slower. I saw in the performance that my pc is using too much Memory but almost nothing of "Disk" (idk if that's the correct way to call it). The thing is that when i was in Win 8.1, my pc was more faster
    and instead of too much memory usage, there was more "disk" usage (almost nothing of memory usage, it didn't go far of 20%, while the Disk one was fine with 40% - 100%). Now the thing is reversed and it's causing me problems while working with 3d programs
    or playing games, it's just impossible, i can't even play internet flash games because they're too slow, and sometimes when i watch videos these stucks for 1 or 2 seconds everytime instead of runing smoothly (and i know it stucks because the audio is going
    smoothly and i can still listen to the video while this stuck).

    Right now my memory usage is usually on 65% - 100% while writing this (but when i'm working with 3d programs or . When i stop using the computer the memory goes up to 80-90-100%, getting the screen stuck for like 3 or 5 seconds, something that didn't happen
    in Win 8.1)

    So, how i make my pc use more "Disk memory" instead of Memory usage?

    Is that really the problem of my pc?

    Is it normal that my pc uses more memory instead of "Disk"? (if it is, i hate it and i want it like it was in Win 8.1)

    I have 4GB RAM

    Processor: AMD A6-4400M APU with radeon HD graphics 2.70GHz

    it's 64 bits.

    (And before anyone else ask, yes i have all my drivers updated and installed, i made a full scan of my pc and no virus were found, i use Avira)

    Windows 10 is using to much of my RAM, how do I fix it?

    What you're seeing is not normal for Windows.

    For example: in Task Manager, I get that my machine is using 2.8GB out of the 32 GB installed.

    Not sure what to suggest. Clear the CMOS, maybe?

    Windows is not "using" your memory. It's reserved for some reason. One place to look is to check your bios and make sure you don't have 4GB allocated to your display adapter (which uses shared memory).

    Check for some bios option like "memory hole" "memory hole remapping" or something like that.
