  1. Windows keeps staying on high RAM


    My computer recently crashed since I tried to screenshot something in a game. With every program (things like discord, steam, chrome, etc...) it still stays on 10gb (I have 2x8 2900MHz). I ran rammap and it's 9gb now. Does anyone know the solution?

  2. high ram usage windows 10 while gaming

    Hi Abhay,



    Welcome and thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.



    I would like to inform that usually when you are trying to play games RAM usage will be high.



    To see if any other Third party software are accessing high usage of RAM, I suggest you to perform the below troubleshooting steps and check.

    Method 1: Run System Maintenance Troubleshooter

    Follow the steps given below:


    • Type Troubleshooting in the Search box from the desktop.

    • Select the Troubleshooting option.

    • Select View All option and select the
      System Maintenance
      .

    • Click on Next to perform the System Maintenance troubleshooter and follow the steps.


    Method 2: If the issue still persists then,

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode.


    • Type Settings in the search box on the desktop, select
      Settings.

    • Here select Change pc settings and then
      General.

    • Scroll down to Advanced startup, click
      Restart now.

    • Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, and Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart, select Safe mode and then press
      Enter.


    Step 2: Perform Clean boot to avoid any third party software conflict.

    Disclaimer: Putting your system in
    Clean Boot
    state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows



    (Applies to Windows 10 as well)

    Refer to "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.





    Hope it helps. Please perform the above methods and update the status of this issue, we will be happy to help you.

    System and compressed memory high disk usage during file copy

    Thank you Amarjeet_Paul.

    I spent many more hours than I had hoped this past week reading and trying others' suggestions from this community on how to reduce high RAM usage due to ntoskrnl.exe. The "System and compressed memory" process remained the top consumer of RAM, using 500-900MB,
    among all other processes running. I deemed it to be the likely culprit in making my computer use frustratingly sluggish. After completing your
    third step, steps 1. & 2. provided no improvement in my case, the "System and compressed memory" process RAM usage has plummeted from the top of the Task Manager Process list to the bottom, running at a remarkable 0.1MB! That's a whole lot less than
    1% of the targeted process' gluttony. You're hired! Ps. I'll be keeping an eye on the process' use as I get back to normal operations, and be back if it floats to high in the list. Or if the registry fix you suggested has compromised use in any way. Please
    explain in simple terms what the insertion of your registry modification is doing.

    Thanks again.

    Geoff

    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.
