A:High physical memory usage on new HP notebook

One thing you could do is determine if you have a problem or not. When all the physical memory is used and swapping is needed you suffer a performance hit. When some physical memory is just gathering cobwebs you have no (immediate) problem. Windows 7 is pretty good at memory management. It will sometimes keep stuff in memory just because the space is available and maybe you will gain performance by not having to load whatever it is.

Another thing is to use Task Manager to see if there are any memory hogs.

I recently upgraded my Windows 7 laptop from 4GB of physical memory to 8 GB. The Bios immediately recognized the added memory but it appears the Task Manager physical memory has not changed and only recognizes ~3.5 GB of available memory. Is there a way
to have Task Manager recognize the added memory? Is the fact that the Task Manager does not recognize the added memory mean other functions are not recognizing the added memory?

Hey guys,

This is my first post as i can usually find my answers elsewhere, but this time, ive had no luck.

I am running windows xp sp3 professional 32-bit and have recently upgraded my RAM from a 256mb(333) + 512MB(333) to a 512MB(400)+512MB(400) set up. When i did this upgrade i got an enjoyable multi-tasking boost so i again upgraded to a 1GB(333)+1GB(333) set up. Again another good performance boost!

But, over the last three days the pc has become slower and slower, today when i checked 'system information' i found that windows was recognising the 2GB physical memory as it had when i first installed it, but instead of having between 1600MB-1200MB of 'available physical memory' after a boot up, i was sitting on 52MB of available physical memory.

I tried reinstalling the two 1GB RAM sticks, changing their order, then returned to the 512MB+512MB set up but had the same problem, except i now have only 12MB of available physical memory! (Screenshots taken in system information are during this time)

I cannot find anyway to fix this and my computer has slowed to a virtually unusable state. Any suggestions would be fantastic!

Thanks in advance!

It's been a while since I had to troubleshoot an XP system, but I'll give it a shot. it sounds like you have a memory leak, which means a program that uses more and more memory. What process in Task Manager is using up the memory?

My total physical memory (64.00MB) is less than my available physical memory (126.73MB).

That's what System Information is telling me. What gives? "Total" should be more than "available."

I've an old Dell running WinXP which I only use for wordprocessing and email.

Thanks for your help.


A:Total physical memory LESS THAN available physical memory?

Total physical memory is the amount of RAM you have. (64 mb)

Windows xp automatically uses hard drive memory as if it is RAM if necessary. This is called virtual memory. have 64 mb of ram, and an additional 64 mb of "virtual" ram from your hard drive.
There is nothing wrong...this is simply how windows xp works.

my laptop uses alot of memory. around 50%. how can i lessen the big usage? i have 2gig ram.

A:My laptop uses a big part of my Memory (physical memory)

This is normal for windows 7, it uses the memory in order to prevent un needed read/writes from the drive. This is actually something you want with a laptop because unless you have a solid state drive, laptop drives are traditionally very slow.

I don't understand why people get so upset when their memory is actually being used, that's what it is there for.
If you open a large program that requires more resources windows will unload nonessential processes from memory to the pagefile while that program is active.

Windows 7 is much better at managing memory than it's predecessors.
1 gig of used ram is pretty much expected.
This is why 1 gig is the minimum required per microsoft's specifications.

I do have a question?

We have a space in harddisk ,called virtual memory.  In addition to DRAM ,Operating System  uses this  virtual memory to store and run applications. Virtual memory makes up for the need of space required.

I think that the physical memory DRAM is not needed. Virtual memory inside the hard disk is  sufficient. 

By avoiding DRAM we  can save the cost of  physical DRAM. We can also save lot of time that is involved in associating the pages between DRAM and Virtual memory.

Of course , virtual memory provided by the hard disk is slow. But  in current trends we can research , to increase the speed of magnetic drums being used by the harddisk to store data. 

Thanks ,

If I choose to rais the amount of virtual memory the system uses does this meen that the computer will not show as much Physical Memory or not be able to utalize it?

A:Virtual Memory And Physical Memory

Virtual memory is actually not memory. It is simulated memory area on the HDD. When you are using a lot of virtual memory, your system will actually run slower. HDD access is considerably slower than RAM access. The OS will page memory out to the HDD to make more physical memory available to itself or applications, as needed.

'Cause it is Vista which has known memory management issues. Killing the startup processes in msconfig does not even begin to stop all the junk Vista is doing behind the scenes.

[SOLVED] Physical Memory All Being Used

Recently my computer has been using all of the physical memory available (95-97%) causing it to have small periods where it freezes us. I have 2.4G of RAM and don't really run too many apps at once. My processes usually shows 60 processes running.

I don't think it's a virus or malware issue. I run scans with Avast frequently.

The main culprit seems to be Firefox. When I check the processes it seems to be using up 1,000,000+ of memory and after that is a plug-in container.exe for Firefox. I don't have any add-ons installed other than Download Helper.

I don't understand why firefox is using that much. I do have a number of tabs open but they're mostly forums and some sports related tabs that I like to have open.

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated...

PS: My system is very slow and also very slower when start up. Isn't that less Available Physical memory the source of that slowness?

A:Available physical memory

every program and process uses RAM theres thousands of back ground tasks going on which will all take tiny amount away. which is why you dont have much avaliable.

the fact that your system is slow is because you have such a low amount of ram in the first place. even back in 2001 1gb was the minimum most people had.

nower days 4gb+ is considered the minimum and 8gb+ is recommended for most users other than web browsers and email users.

basically more ram is your friend. its cheap and cheerful these days and an easy thing to upgrade.

A:Physical Memory

Hi RADSHOPBOB and welcome to TSF !

Are these the figures you got from the performances tab in the task manager (press ctrl+alt+del) ? If so it only means that Windows XP and your other running programs are currently using 400 MB of your RAM and that 112 MB remain unused. It's not unusual for XP to use as much as 300-400 MB on its own and there's no point in trying to have the maximum of free memory.

Though 512 MB or RAM is considered a minimum for XP so if you hear the hard drive working constantly or if you see that the peak value is always higher than 512 MB under comit charge in the task manager (still in the performances tab) then it means that your applications would probably work faster if you added some more RAM.

A:How do I get rid of physical memory..

That is what we refer to as a BSOD(Blue screen of Death) The cause could be one of many. If you care to wait it out, your machine should eventually reboot after dumping the contents of RAM to a file(hense the message about memory dump)
Many times you might get one of these and not see another for many months, other times you may get one that is related to a problem with a new piece of software or a device driver and will keep coming up till you remove the program or update/rollback the driver. They can also be related to pieces of hardware conflicting with eachother, missing or corrupt files, virus infections, and just about anything else you can imagine.
More info on the exact error message might be helpful in determining the cause of your BSOD. Also, any recent changes to the system(software and/or hardware) would be very helpful.

I have 512mb physical memory, which came with the machine. I believe somewhere around 64mb, is reserved for video graphics, although somewhere I read it could be as much as 256mb. The computer is a Compaq SR163ONX., 3500+AMD Atholn 64 Processor and a 200 GB hard drive. In the preformance tab of taskmanager, under physical memory, I show Total:457192 (K), Available: 172448(K), and System cache: 255443 (K). My concern is, should there be more available than the 172448 (K), or am I missinterpeting the readings. I have wittled my startup (msconfig) to 7 processes, and my running process to 37 from 47. I would like to get it down further, but I believe those that are still running are necessary as per internet research. I am running AVG Free as my av, I run AdAware and SpyBot at least twice a week as well as ewido, so I believe the machine is pretty clean of nasties. I have no problem with the operation of the machine, just my concern over the task managers readings. What brought this to my attention was the reading on my other machine. It is running Windows XP with SP1. It is a Compaq S6020WM. It had 256 mb of ram with a 40 gb hard drive. I installed another 256mb of memory to total 512mb. The task manager reading in it reads: Total: 515568, Available: 249228 and System Cache: 367220. I be... Read more

The task manager may not give accurate total readings.
If you want to verify what shows as installed and what is being shared by your video card download Everest Home Edition V1.51 from
(you will find it in the utilities section. V1.51 is the last freeware version of Everest that has a software module which is very helpful, so get that and not later versions.

By the way, running XP on a computer without SP2 opens your computer to myriads of unpatched exploits. SP2 is primarily a security update and is critical for you to have installed.

Microsoft no longer supports computers running anything below SP2 so the absence of it means you also do not have subsequent critical updates.

I'll tell you one thing: I wouldn't want my email address to be in that computer!

Hi, not sure if this was the correct place to put it.

Anyway, I go into Taskmanager and I see three numbers that represent the following:

1. Processes
2. CPU Usage
3. Physical Memory

Now, I understand what the first two are, but what does Physical Memory mean?

On a side not, I also was experiencing crashes with Oblivion after the CPU usage shot to 50%+ for no apparent reason.


A:Physical Memory

Physical Memory = Installed RAM

Keep an eye on the Resource Monitor for CPU usage -
START | type perfmon /res

I have a laptop that says It has a 4GB RAM. But when I check the specs out it says 3GB Physical memory only. What does it mean? I'm concerned about this because I'm trying to use Autocad Civil 3D which requires 4GB RAM. But it keeps hanging up, so I'm guessing this is due to that "3GB Physical memory" note. So I'm planning to use Civil 3d 2009 which requires 3GB RAM. But in the system requirements provided by Autodesk for Civil 3D 2009, it says to use the 3GB switch for 32-bit OS's. What does that mean? By the way I'm using windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit.

A:Physical Memory?

A 32-bit operating system can only access 4GB worth of address space. Into that, we need to factor in I/O devices and any other hardware. The result is that actual physical memory that can be used will range from 2.75GB to 3.25GB, dependant on the hardware.

Hello all,

I installed a Windows XP x86 on my PC. But when I open the system information window in the System Summary tab, in the right-hand pane and at bottom the following are written:

Total Physical memory 768.00 MB Available Physical memory 270.41 MB !!
Why Available Physical memory is 270.41 MB please?

PS: My system is very slow and also very slower when start up. Isn't that less Available Physical memory the source of that slowness?

A:Available physical memory, XP

You have only 1Gb of ram installed on the motherboard and XP is using 768Mb which isn't leaving much over. You need to install more ram. It depends on what you are using the computer for but I'd say you want at least 2Gb ram.

download startup inspector, its a free program with a user friendly interface. just use this for programs that you think you'd want to run at startup and what you wouldnt like to run at startup, it will stop starting all those processes you dont need to start. (just dont stop the windows processes from microsoft from starting at startup)

alternatively press ctrl+shift+esc and then click on the processes tab. every process that's labelled system you dont want to close.

The only advice I got from Dell, who did not really look into the problem (it`s out of warranty) is: "buy a new CPU and see if that fixes it." Is there some way to further diagnose the problem?
I saved a complete dump, but even zipped it is 142MB. I also ran the SETUPPERF version of MPSReports (from on the laptop, which produces a CAB file (only 1.2MB). I know there is a small dump option, but I don`t know if it would do anyone any good.
Any thoughts on what to do from here?

That is perfectly normal, a bit on the high side but not abnormally so. Windows 7 uses memory differently than previous versions.. allocating 1/3 to 1/2 the physical memory for running processes during idle and the rest available for graphics/superfetch

Ive gone out and bought a new computer
Intel Core i7 Cpu
EX58-UD4 mother board
500gb hdd
650 psu
6gig ddr3 ram

So ive always ran XP but i heard from a friend that XP could only read up to 4gig of ram. So not wanting the ram to go to waste ive gone out and bought Vista Home Premium 32bit because he said vista could handle the ram.

After installation ive discovered that my installed physical memory is only 4GB Originally i thought maybe all the drivers have to be installed so i did that but still no difference. Then i googled it and ended up on vista forums, from what ive read 32bit can only handle up to 4gb but the 64bit can handle...well it didnt say a figure but just said "all of your ram"

Just wanted some clarification as to what i am reading is entirely true. And whether its worth going out and buying the 64bit edition.

Also if i did go buy the 64 bit edition is it easily enough to just install it over the top of my current 32 bit?


A:Installed Physical Memory

You are going to need a 64-bit OS to address anything over 4GB of RAM. The easiest fix here, of course, is to get a 64-bit version of Windows Vista.
The “can I simply install over…” question has a pretty simple, but not great answer of: No.
Here’s the info directly from the MSFT site:

If you are currently running a 32-bit version of Windows, you can only perform an upgrade to another 32-bit version of Windows. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to another 64-bit version of Windows Vista.

If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you'll need to back up your files and then perform a custom installation of the 64-bit version of Windows Vista. For more information, see Installing and reinstalling Windows.

For detailed information about installing and upgrading 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows, go to Installation choices for Windows Vista (32-bit) or Installation choices for Windows Vista (64-bit) online.

Hi, I just recently bought a desktop which came with Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. I have one question though. I notice that even when idle, my free Physical memory starts decreasing, while my cache memory starts increasing. At one point, I saw that my free memory had dropped to 0 while running a game.

I found this weird as I figured that my RAM would be sufficient to run most games, while still having some free RAM leftover.

Is this a bad thing? Will having little to no free Physical Memory hinder my playing of games?

With no applications running, my Physical Memory (MB) status shows:

Total: 6134
Cached: 2574
Free: 2750

My other information, although i'm not sure whether it's needed, are:

Hello, I am re-posting this because this seems to be a deeper problem then I had originally thought. This computer is a 2.4 duel core laptop with 3gb of ram. It has worked perfectly for alittle over 6 months with AVG originally installed on it after purchase. This problem just started one day ago. My computer started running really slow from startup to shutdown, partially freezing up whenever a new program is launched. (Lag of around 5s) I checked the physical memory usage, it is constantly maxed even in idle mode with basic programs running. There is no conflictions with any programs, and I have AVG and Ccleaner/malware/defrag constantly running on it with no faults.

The fans are working properly and temp is reading normal at 40c. Services with services.msc through run cmd have been stopped (down to minimal) and tweaks for performance have been done with no barley any improvement. I ran rammap/task manager(with show process from all users enabled) and resource monitor and the image is attached. Rammap is indicating that 2.5gb worth of ram is "driver locked". I have no clue what this is or how to unlock this. Some assitance would be much apprechiated. Thank you.

hi the first thing is not try to play online and install a game no wonder your comp is loopy if you have problems you can try system restore to before you messed up if need be you can use the install disc to do a restore if that fails you may need to run a repair from the disc but we are not there yet so see what happens first as a simple restore may work or even starting in safe mode and trying to undo things from there so lots of options

I have a new Dell inspiron 580 with core i3 processor, 4gb ram and windows 7 home premium x64. Through a dock gadget, I noticed that the physical memory usage never ever exceeds 33%, regardless of the amount of tasks and load placed on it. It seems it would rather slow down that exceed this number. On the flip side, while running fairly idle, never dips below 20%. Testing using task manager confirms this. System info shows 4GB installed and 2.76GB available. When testing under various different scenarios, task manager will max out at 1.15GB used, while showing 0MB free but 2800~MB available. Can anybody give me any input on the situation? Capture shows light load, Capture 2 shows multiple tasks including an HD movie playing.

A:Physical Memory Usage never above 33%

Hi, nickunbc! Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Open Resource Monitor. You can do so either by clicking the Resource Monitor button in the Performance tab of the task manager or typing resmon in the Start search box.

What does it display in regard to "Hard Faults?"

If your HD is not getting thrashed you probably have nothing to worry about.

(note: my hard faults are a bit high right now - they are usually at zero - because AVG and Windows are reindexing files since I just installed Office 2010)

Hi, im a newbie here...
But i have a serious question cause this problem is seriously messing up my computer


This usually starts off with me downloading the Xp updates...
Now lately, my computer shuts down every 2 minutes... now i dont think its a virus cause ive scanned and have gotten the patch.

Anyways... it shuts down.. but before it totally shuts down i get this full blue screen... (not a B.S.O.D) And what it tells me is that its dumping my physical memory.. and that either new hardware or software is messing it up..

I have no idea what to do..

Any responses will be awesome.

A:Too many processes and too much physical memory being used

Hi All,

I have a strange issue with a Toshiba Portege R600-13Z (PPR61E). When I bring the machine out of hibernation it presents the following message:

'No physical memory is available at the location required for the windows boot manager. The system cannot continue.'

At this point I just power off and cold boot.

The laptop is running Win7 Pro x86, is fully updated and has a clean bill of health otherwise. The error is repeatable, the machine never comes out of hibernation without presenting this error. It has 3GB of RAM installed (one of which is embedded and not user replaceable). I have removed the only user serviceable stick of ram (2GB) and tested on the 1GB of embedded RAM but I get the same error.

The system is fully defragged and free from malware or infection and other than this error it runs like a champ.

A shiny Gold Star to any bright spark who knows the fix for this.

Many thanks.

A:After Hibernation.. 'No Physical memory is available...'

In BIOS make sure your first boot device is set to your hard drive

Check on Toshiba's website to see if there is a latest BIOS update (read the notes and see if the issue you are having is listed and if so update the BIOS) if not then do not do the BIOS update yet

Under BIOS check what are your SATA settings are (AHCI, IDE/SATA, Raid) and post it here

Update the chipset drivers for your system to the latest ones
Update the Storage Drivers

Hi Folks,

I've a feeling this may be something to do with windows explorer, or windows indexing -

Latelly, I copied a number of high def movie rips from an external hard-disc to my laptop, to play through my TV via HDMI.

I'm running windows 7 and have 4 gig of ram, an in spite of running very few other applications in the background, when i play one of the movies, the physical memory of my computer hits 96% and stays there.

The movie then occasionally becomes sluggish, and freezes, and any attempt to close windows etc cause the computer to lock up completely and when i try to hit Ctrl, Alt and Del to use task manager - the computer dies a death altogether.

All through this, at the top of the window containing the high def file, the green ribbon/loading bar seems to be struggling to complete.

If i do have the task manager open, I can see that the physical memory is all but maxed out, but yet there is nothing showing in the processes list that is particularly resource heavy.

I'm sure this makes sense to someone, but would love to understand this little glitch better myself.

Many thanks,

Last week I got an Intel message saying one of my Raid-0 hard drives had failed, however the message hasn't come up since.
I checked task manager this morning and it says I have 70%physical memory being used. It wasn't that high last week, so I was wondering if they were connected?

Hey everyone,
I've got a problem with my laptop which is an Acer Aspire 5920G.
The fans on my laptop always seem to be running really loudly, which is kind of annoying.
So i've been trying to find out what is wrong with it.
I've tried cleaning out the fan from dust and lint & changing my startup programs list to avoid programs chewing up CPU.
Then I noticed my rather high Physical Memory which averages around 50% if I haven't got anything open at all, which is rather large.

My System Specs are:

Hello, my PC has been slowing down quite a lot over the last few months, i've tried many different cleaning programmes. I still have 293 of 445GB free on my pc and so i believe this isn't the problem.

What happens is, my CPU used to spike about a week or two ago, and then sit around 80% when i wasn't doing a thing, but after uninstalling programmes i have fixed this, but now the problem is the "physical memory"

As soon as I turn the computer on it goes on to around 65%

Then when i open up one of my games to play, such as "LoL" it goes to around 90+ and causes me to have a severe FPS lag on the game, i really need to get it sorted as it's disrupting my gameplay.

Thanks very much for reading,

By the way i'm very inexperienced with this sort of thing so go easy on me please

Problem: My computer says its dumping physical memory. It showed a blue screen while that was happening. A whole lot of text was on the screen, butt it rebooted before i had time to read it all. What do i do? I'm scanning with Norton 2009, but no viruses or anything have come up. I have Vista, and nothing else was open except for Firefox before the blue screen.

Yoru computer is crashing. You likely have a piece of bad hardware or a bad driver. Make sure all your drivers are up to date. If it continues to happen check with a local trusted non-big box computer repair shop.

Hi there, this is my first post and I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I have a Dell 700m Inspiron notebook and after some update installed, it shut down. When I went to go and get my online I had this error:

first it asked me what mode I wanted to start with, after I clicked "safe" mode, it went to a blue screen with the message:

dumping physical memory
physical memory dump completed
Please contact technical support or manufacturer for more assistance. It stays on this blue screen ALL the time.

I have searched in here for some posts on this, and many people have said go to my control panel and do this and that. But I cant go anywhere. It stays either on what mode do I want to start it with and then goes directly to the blues screen. Can anyone help me with this? And what I need to do? Thanks!!
