High physical memory usage on new HP notebook

Q: High physical memory usage on new HP notebook

Hi
I bought a new HP Pavilion dv6-3060si Entertainment Notebook, 3 days ago. The physical memeory usage is 50% plus even when I do not have any webpages or documents open.
I am clueless about PC lingo, but here are is some info:
Intel core i3-350m processor 226GHz
4GB RAM
Windows 7 Home Premium
AVG 2011 and AVG PC tuneup 2011 (antivirus)
I have read other threads about high physical memory usage, but I need someone to take me step by step and explain what to do.
I downloaded that Hijack program and ran it. Here is the screen dump. Please help me. Thank you.

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.

Hello everyone, I've been having a very weird problem recently, in which I BELIEVE is involving high physical memory usage. Sometimes I will be doing things such as playing a game, or watching a stream, and my computer will run fine for a little while. But at random times, my computer will majorly slow down and sometimes even crash. If it doesn't crash, sometimes it will get so slow to the point where I have to hold down the power button and manually shut it down. Every time my computer slows down I notice it is using a TON of physical memory. It's actually happening right now. My computer is going very slow and it's using 6.22 GB memory out of 8. There are no big programs running right now, so I don't understand why it's being slow. I hope someone is able to help. Thank you for taking the time to read this!

Update: I just tried to open chrome, and the computer froze completely. It would not unfreeze. After leaving it frozen for a minute or two, the screen went black. This is becoming very frustrating.

Greetings,
 
I formatted my computer, and after installing windows 7 again, my physical memory in task manager is very high, and cpu keeps jumping up and down.
 
I looked at the processes tab, but noticed absolutely nothing taking abnormal memory (private working set.) Then moved on to performance tab> resource monitor, and found svchost (I think it was netsvcs in parenthesis,) hogging all the memory. After ending the process, I still have had high memory usage, and surprisingly, do not see a process anywhere in task manager with high numbers next to it, so I have no idea what's happening.
 
I have noticed that my windows 7 folder keeps increasing in size, currently about 26 gigs, and a helper told me that it's normal because the updates in windows 7 have a different compression method than windows 8 and after, however when I had previously installed windows 7, fully updated... my folder size was normal, so I assume it can be done?
 
I originally posted in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs section, however I did not find malware on my computer, so unless it's very new malware, I am certain windows 7 is causing this problem.
 
For antivirus, I am currently using a free trial of Norton.
 
Advice?
 
P.S. This is probably better for the hardware section, but can constant high physical memory, and cpu usage ruin my hardware? I am avoiding using things that take up high cpu and memory right now, and it's currently about 1.2 g... Read more

Ok, I am literally KILLING myself over this!

I installed Windows 7 64Bit over XP around a month ago and it was so good that I recommended it to my brother who was previously on XP too. We got him a copy of the 32bit version as he has only 2gb of memory, and he installed it on his machine. However, he constantly had high CPU and RAM usage (Even though no programs were obviously taking it all up in his task manager) and it was making his computer sluggish and slow. Everything was freezing and hanging and it was a nightmare.

I spent a day looking all over the net to find out the problem, but could not fix it at all, no matter what the hell I tried. So he reverted back to Windows XP. (A nice waste of money on Windows 7.) His Windows XP now runs smoothly and is all as it was.

Suddenly today, after my brother connected to my Windows 7 homegroup (or workgroup rather) through his Windows XP machine, my computer got the EXACT same problem as he had ages ago! I have been browsing Google all day downloading s**t, changing things in my computer, trying EVERY possible fix that people have suggested and that sound legit. Nothing works!

So now all of a sudden, my computer is sluggish, games are jumpy and jittery, video rendering times are slooooooow.

Here is a picture of my resource monitor:
You can see the physical memory usage being at 45%. I've ordered the memory usage of each service in highest to lowest.
I just CANT see where the problem is!

A:Windows 7 random CPU usage and high physical memory usage!!!

I can tell you what is probably causing your problems. AVG.
When you are looking at memory, do not sort by Working set, sort by Hard faults.
Hard faults is what causes things to slow down. Plus you have plenty of memory not to worry about usage.

Last night after I scanned my computer with mcafee I noticed my comp was acting slow and sluggish, I opened task manager and found that my physical memory was high and i only had 30 some processes running. Still having the same problem after I clean rebooted, disk defragged and checked for updates but sadly nothing has worked. Here's a SS of my task manager, hopefully someone can help me out

I fail to see a high RAM usage in your snip. Look into Resource Monitor > Memory tab. The colored bar will tell you the real story. The sluggishness could have other reasons.

Hello,

Recently I have been having issues with my computer locking up after exiting a full screen game and trying to open any other full screen game. I am fairly confident that it's a video card issue, but through looking through my task manager, I've found that my physical memory usage is at 65% of 4GB (2.65GB) when I'm not currently running any major applications (Currently just internet explorer). I don't know if this is too vague of a problem, but any insights would be wlecome.

Ive recently bought a HP probook 4530s.
Its has Windows 7 Home Premium.
Processor - Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2310 CPU @ 2.10GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 4.00 GB
System type: 64-bit Operating System.

My Laptop is running slow even when there are no applications running. I am not a pro in computers so I asked one of my friend and he said that the physical memory usage is very high and there are many processes (around 105) running. So I am a little worried about this thing. Is everything alright with my laptop? if not what necessary steps I will have to take for the same.
Please Guide me through the whole thing.
Thanking in Advance

These past couple of months my CPU usage has been extremely high and it has never been that way before all my games ran completely smooth and fine on highest settings and now i get lag or take a long time to connect. On start up of my laptop I open task manager and close necessary programs that take up a lot of CPU usage making it hang in between 5-10%. But when i start up League of Legends or any other game it shoots up too 50-90%, i have both Fixcleaner and DriverUpdate so all my drivers should be up to date and my computer is clean of junk (from what i know) I also use Avast and AVG. PLEASE HELP ME GET MY COMP BACK TO HOW AMAZING IT USE TO BE!!! **also at some times there will be 2+ SVChosts.exe that take up most of the physical memory and cpu usage, but the services on them will crash my comp if i stop them.

Heres my specs.

Answer Match 99.12%

Hey guys,

When I start any game like MW3, BO2 , my Physical memory usage goes up to 50%.. My RAM is 4GB..

This wasn't happening to me before.. It started getting like this 2 days ago.. Yesterday I ran a registry clean and it was ok.. Game wasn't lagging, but today it's lagging again..

I used CCleaner, Glary Utilites, MalwareBytes, scanned with AV.. but nothing is happening

A:High Physical memory usage

Hello boki and welcome to Seven Forums.

Windows 7 has a built in tool that can help figure out how your RAM is being used. It's call Resource Monitor. If you could post a screenshot of the Memory tab it will give a better idea of how RAM is being allocated during game play.

Resource Monitor

Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Windows 7 is not like previous operating systems. It has a different way of using RAM. It tries to use as much RAM as you have available because "unused RAM is wasted RAM."

You could also try running the Disk Cleanup utility, especially deleting unnecessary system files (step 5.)

I saw some videos aobut comparing vista and win 7 and both had similar performance. I regretting that I didn't upgraded to win 7 when I had a chance tho..
but by seeing that visata can run pretty similar to win 7 I'm relieved a little but..
in the video that I saw.. he had about 27% of physical memory running on vista and mine is running 70% right now.. I was like "Oh, wow.."
So... how can I make my computer use less physical memory to about down to 20% ~30%?
If I bring down my computers physical memory percentage down will it help on gaming and other operations get better?

and some other questions:
1. I still want to upgrade my computer, if I can, to win 7, so do I need to get win 7 64bit version because I have 64bit OS right now?

2. Say if I buy win 7 and make a back up CD for win 7, can I use it on other computers? or no?

I would appreciate anyone's help

hello guys!

just wanted to ask for your opinions/tips regarding this one..

i have a Gateway MT3707 laptop with a Windows Vista (32bit) OS. lately, i have noticed a weird behavior with regards to my unit; its performance has really slowed down lately. upon startup, and/or even though only one one program is running, the whole unit tends to lag already. as i tried to observe its performance via the task manager, under the performance tab, i seem to notice that the physical memory usage history part is almost at its limit already.. it seems to be fixed at the 80-90% capacity always, whether programs are running or none at all.. (see attached image)

as an effect of this, programs running tend to lag, and also suffer the case of them Not Responding; in short, a very slow performance..

any suggestions on how to lessen/ improve the performance itself? already tried disk cleanup and defragment but after which, still the same.. thanks!

So I have an Acer TravelMate 2480 running with Windows Vista. My computer is extremely slow with any opening any program and constantly says "not responding". I have run a disk defrag, disk cleanup, symantec and adware programs, and i stopped the "Windows Search" in my services.msc. I then went and bought an external hard drive thinking the music and photos on my computer were overloading the RAM even though I've have other computers before and this was not a problem. I've backed up my computer and deleted all music and photos. I then went into my programs and deleted all unwanted large programs. My computer is literally running with nothing on it, and is still extremely slow. There has to be something wrong as I do not want to be afraid of downloading some music. I constantly receive a notice bubble saying "memory low close programs to save information". I am the only user ever running on this computer and I have run the msconfig and startup to run on programs that are needed for a healthy startup.

I have attached screen shots for your perusal to help me.

ANY advice is helpful.

dont know if it has anything to do with this, but shortly before this problem started i had trouble with booting my PC from my system HD after installing a new HD

Also, are you using Spotify/Skype all the time? Figuring out what is up with Firefox and stopping Skype/Spotify if you don't need it would help.

You could also simply get more ram. Its not that expensive and its one of the best things you can do to speed up your PC, especially with your specific problem.

Hey,

Wondering if anyone of you more experience Windows 7 users can help me with the system lag problem I've got going on at the moment.

I did a Google search and found quite a few posts on this forum alone re: lag/high memory usage and for the last couple of days Ive been giving my system the once over but as you will see from the screen dumps below, I've still got unusually high memory usage.

Previous to the lag I have now, I was getting BSODs, so I ran GParted and it found some bad sectors and patched them up, it was running sweet as a nut for a few days then *bang*...laggy hell! So now, I've uninstalled a few hungry programs, currently my 120GB disk drive is 79GB free. I've cleaned my PC is spyware using Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition and check for viruses with Avast! - It told me I didn't have any. I've also done a Windows Memory Diagnostic on startup which found no errors, cleared excess C:/program files folders that hadnt been removed by my earlier unistalls, ran disk clean up and defragmented. I also have selective start up via msconfig with just my bare necessities running.

I'm sorry for typing loads, I am a bit stuck, not really sure what more I can do - Any help would be very greatly appreciated as I work from home and my productivity is dismal lol!

Many thanks,

Hi,

about two weeks ago I saw that my computer used a lot of memory (3/4GB). It hasn't been changing a lot in the past two weeks. Now, what could I possibly do to prevent my computer from using so much memory? The only programs I have opened are Firefox, Nettalk (IRC Client), Thunderbird, occasionally uTorrent and Dropbox. Except for Firefox, I don't see anything using too much memory.

Here are a couple of screens of the Task Manager and Resource Monitor:

You have 3 gigs installed, and one is free. Of the remaining 2 firefox is using 627Mb, Thunderbird 138Mb, both are higher than I have ever seen. So that leaves you one left for the rest of the processes.

I would imagine from FF usage that you have quite a few addons? Do you and what are they?

I'm not a tech-adept person, so would really appreciate some help. The physical usage is at 98-99%, then after quite a while it drops only into the mid-80% and when I try to do anything, it zooms back up to 99%.
Can't get my PC to do anything -- tried to open Malwarebytes but can't get past the first screen to activate it or Iobit Advanced System Care.

I force quit (held the on-button on until computer shut down) and now it's doing a disk-check, but it had just done that when this trouble started an hour ago, so I'm not very optimistic.

I don't even know what "physical memory" means.... could the fact that I downloaded a dozen or so 3mb photos to the desktop recently be a factor?

Okay, chkdsk is finished, am waiting for boot up. It's taking a very long long time. I've got just the black screen with the little bar with little green vertical bars running across above "Microsoft Corporation" Meanwhile, I'll post this and hope somebody sees it and can help.

Okay, the first Vista screen has come up (with the three users to choose from). I'm trying one of the other users (they're all me) just to see what happens. It's assembling slowly.

and recently it has spiked to 80-90% when I have nothing open.
Its the worst if I restart.
I have run a lot of virus/malware scans, and I remember removing some spyware, but it didn't help. Might have even been unrelated
anyway, I have tried to do a system restore, that didn't work.
I looked in task manager and nothing unusual is running, and I looked in the process manager, and like...nothing is there using up all the memory???

I can't buy more memory at the moment, and I'm thinking of just getting a new laptop and stuff with more memory anyway. But until then, I reaaaally wanna fix whatever's wrong with this one so I can keep using it.

I could run Paint tool SAI and have SMplayer open and it would use AT MOST 70%, now its 80 to 90% once again..

I'm getting frustrated with all the stuff I try and it doesn't work.

Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong?

I've posted a thread regarding this a month ago here. I had scanned my PC with Malware bytes and turns out I had 4 malwares. Rebooted it and figured it was the end of it. The thing is this happens occasionally when I'm normally browsing Chrome, the memory usage goes up to 3,89GB out of 4GB out of nowhere. I go to the task manager/resource monitor and I can't find anything relevant I wouldn't normally have. Sure I have about 70 tasks but they're all small and shouldn't be causing trouble. Today it happened while I was installing Sniper Elite v2 - lengthy installation, it was using my whole RAM understandably, yet after it was finished I'm still left with about 80% of memory usage?

Hey there. I've just switched over to a new computer, only to find it's actually more sluggish than a computer with similar specs that hadn't be reformatted for two years. For example, sometimes when I type in urls or things in the run bar, there is a delay in the letters appearing. I know that Chrome can be a resource hog, but it's about the most intensive thing I have open right now and there is still noticeable sluggishness. I know that I have a lot more processes open by default than I probably should, but I also don't know which ones are safe to remove. Can someone please help me out?

Hi Everyone,
 
My name is David, and I found your forum through my efforts to resolve a computer problem. Any guidance you might be able to provide would be wonderful. 
 
Here is my basic computer information: Windows Vista Home Premium, Intel Core Quad CPU at 2.67 GHz with 4GB of physical memory and the 64-bit OS.
 
In the past few days, I noticed my CPU fan is running more than usual. I am a quadriplegic and I spend all day on the computer, so I pay close attention to how it's working. 
 
I checked my system performance through the task manager, and nearly 70% of my physical memory is being used. I don't know for certain, but that seems high to me. 
 
I have tried to investigate my processes, but I don't really know what I am looking at. 
 
The only things I have done out of the ordinary lately are download an episode of Survivor from a torrent site and experiment with a VPN service, which I have since uninstalled.
 
To resolve the fan running problem, I have run scans with Malwarebyes and Ad-Aware which removed a handful of suspicion files. I also have Norton Security running at all times. The problem still remains. 
 
I have attached a few screenshots that I hope will be helpful (the Wivik programs are related to my onscreen keyboard). 
 
Please let me know if I can provide any other information that would be helpful. What should I do next? 
 
Best, 
David 

A:Fan running more than usual, physical memory usage high

Hello Ucwheels. I can help you if you will download,install and run Process Hacker. http://processhacker.sourceforge.net/
 
Run as adminstator and lets see what process(s) are eating you ram from here. From there we can dig deeper and see what the underlying problem might be if it's OS related. From your screenshots I can't get a clear picture.
 
Also press Windows key + R type mdsched.exe and hit ok then restart and run the test. Let's check if your ram has become faulty. I will be back on tomorrow unless someone else can help you before then.

Hi Guys.

For the last 2 weeks , as soon as my PC gets switched on the CPU usage jumps to around 52% and Physical Memory to around 58%. I only have one program running and thats Internet Explorer 8.

Anyone know why it is so high? A virus or malware perhaps? I've tried running Spyboy Search & Destroy aswell as Malware Anti-Malware bytes, but no joy. As the CPU is so high, the computer gets very hot with the heatsink (fan) going into overdrive which makes an absulute racket. It doesn't effect the performance much as its a high spec PC but its now getting a tad annoying.

I've also noticed that at night time the internet speed goes down considerably, i'm on a 10Mb connection and the last few nights speeds have been like no better than the old 56k days! Someone perhaps using my machine to attack other machines/users.

Any help would be grand.

Edit: The list of things I have done but the problem is still the same-

Spybot Search & Destroy
Avast Anti-Virus Scan
Malware Bytes Anti Malware
SuperAntiSpyware
Ad-aware wouldn't work, getting a 'System Error 1814'
My sincere apologies if this is in the wrong section.

Thanks alot

Greeting,
Lately i have encountered a frustrating high level of CPU and Memory usage. When i first started my computer with no application running, i noticed the slow loading, and that's when i saw my CPU and physical memory rocket-up to 60% and 2 gigs of ram. To make the matter worse, the physical memory usage increases gradually until it reachs near 4 GB. At some point, the free P/M reaches 0, the CPU usage is unstable ( somestimes its 20% and somestimes 90%). There's another strange thing is the sudden appearance of svchost.exe which i haven't seen since i bought this PC. I've searched through the forums and found several methods ( Virus scanning, process explorer, turning off several unneccessary services and even re-install windows ( C driver to be specific) ) but sadly nothing worked. I've also disabled the apps that i recently added to chrome ( as i thought they were the causes), but the P/M Usage still stays at 4GB. The only thing that i can use with getting lag and stuttering now is google chrome, although its a horror just looking at how slow things are. Please help me to find a solution, i have a lots of important document and i can't stand the thought of having to completely re-boot my whole computer. Thanks a lot!

My Computer:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Hello

Fairly recently, my computer began having performance problems after about half hour of usage and only running a few programs (Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Word, for example). My CPU Usage/Physical Memory both shoot up above 90%. I have uninstalled unnecessary programs, disabled many programs on start-up, and have run virus scans using different scanners, but nothing I've tried has helped. Can somebody please diagnose whether I have a virus?

I am running Windows 7 on a Samsung 900X (Intel Core i5-2467M CPU @ 1.60GHz, 4GB RAM, 64-bit OS).

Thank you very much in advance.

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

Whaaat!!  225 tabs??   Methinks therein lies your problem.  Maybe you are expecting too much from an extension too.  It's not the job of an extension to monitor system resources.

Normally in past it runs at around 10% (600mb or so). I have noticed it mainly when plaing SW: Force Unleashed and Dawn of War 2. Gameplay runs fine for maybe 3 or 4 seconds then freezes for 10 seconds then is fine again for 3 or 4 seconds and so on. I have tried disabling services, clean boots, virus scans, searched every forum maybe in existance and have found no soloution. I have 4gd DDR3 Ram (2x2gb sticks) and a 3.2ghz Quad Core AMD processor. Also i have noticed that my CPU usage is around 1 or 2% which is rather small isnt it?

In my event log, i have been getting multiple errors relating to a bad block in my hard disk. This error repeats about every minute or so. My computer was only put together 3 months and ago and this is rather frustrating me. Any help would be great.

Hi,

Recently, I saw that my computer used a lot of physical memory. Now, what could I possibly do to prevent my computer from using so much memory?

A:High Physical Memory Issues

Welcome to the forum.

When dealing with suspected memory problems the best place to start is a screenshot of Task Manager - Performance tab. This shows important information not found anywhere else.

My 32 bit vista with 2g ram since earlier today has been running at a constant 40-50% physical memory with no programs running!!!

Task manager performance tab it shows my free physical memory at 0. It's usually alot more then that, 200+. Usually when I have most of my usual programs running its still never this low! firefox,msn messenger,utorrent,even a java based mmo game. Before earlier today I could have all these programs running and still have a decent amount of free physical memory,now I have no programs running hardly and it's 0 free physical memory.

This all happened shortly after I installed a number of programs. mostly stuff to mount virtual drives and the like. Daemon tools,ultraiso and somethen else maybe. I have run windows defender scan along with malwarebyts and nothing malicious shows up. I've even disabled indexing and superfetch so those are not the problems.

I'm only running 69 processes with only 3 of them 30,000k or over. I'm the only one who uses this computer. I've even tried a system restore but the mysterious high activity remains. Please help!
I'm new here so forgive me If I'm missing anything important

Also superfetch causes my cpu usage to shoot up extremely and has forced me to disable it,but this is only just recently. Worked fine yesterday.

hi,,,, if it just started to happen after installing new apps then reverse the process and uninstall them and see what you get,,,, do you have a stand alone gpu,,, if not then when your playing games using daemon tools then it could be using your ram for game play,,, whats the make and model of your pc.

Don't know much about computers, but...just started occasionally getting one short beep or two short beeps every once in a while. Read thru a few forums, and found some responses concerning memory. Checked my Task Manager (I'm on Windows 7 on an Acer laptop a few months old) and all the CPU usage was at 0, but the usage at the bottom was changing from 9% to maybe 45%. I checked off show processes from all users, but it didn't make a difference. Also, the physical memory reads anywhere from 35-45%. Aside from a small slowdown in things like typing on a website (or here), there are no significant problems. I ran a virus scan, and rebooted, to no avail. But if it's beeping, there must be something wrong. Is it time to consider repair shop? Any one with any ideas?

Hey guys, hi there,
i am running windows 7 ultimate 32bit and everything is fine except my physical memory usage which is very high, sometimes almost finished. i have a 1GB ram and without any applications open its around 700. Lowest i have noted is 550, i was happy, computer was fast and smooth, but i dont know what i did that it went that low. it keeps changing on itself. sometimes very high, sometimes high but computer is running (at a slow/normal speed). i have checked out the processes but am unsure which ones should i end without messing up with the system's processes. Please help on how to manage the physical memory and end unwanted processes. Thanks alot guys.

A:Physical Memory Usage

1 GB of RAM is less than I would like to use.

2 GB would probably make a noticeable difference.

What do you have checked in the startup tab of msconfig? Try unchecking everything except antivirus.

Look at the services tab of msconfig. Put a check in "hide all Microsoft services". How many services are left after you do that?

Hi - first post here,

My laptop (specs below) has been using about 40-50% physical memory continually for a while now, causing the fans to work overtime (?) and the system response time to slow. This occurs even when CPU usage is 0-5%

I've read forums here and elsewhere on this and tried a number of things, but nothing I've done so far has had much effect:
- used MSCONFIG to reduce the number of startup items to 5-6
- Ran disk clean-up to free-up space (+ laptop runs defragmentation weekly)
- Uninstalled unwanted programs using Control Panel -> Add/Remove...
- checked Task Manager -> Resource Monitor -> Physical Memory...and there is not enough committed memory displayed to take up 2GB RAM
- Ran http://www.uniblue.com/software/speedupmypc/, which helped on the margin with some things, but not with the physical memory
- Ran "chkdsk /f", but little change afterwards
- Full scans by fully updated versions of AdAware & Norton Antivirus show no malware

Possible reasons:
- I'm still running about 65 processes (40 mine, 25 system), although most seem very very small on memory usage
- Laptop tells me 290GB of my 320GB hardrive is full. I have a large music collection on there, but I don't understand this - here's what I have counted:
- Music files: 130GB
- Games: 17GB

A:CPU Usage and Physical Memory ~90%

2GB RAM and dual-core CPU is about the bare minimum for a decent experience in Windows 7. Chrome is also known for wasting system resources like crazy (just look how many processes and how much memory consumes each one). I don't think it's a rare thing what you're seeing.
CPU usage should peak while loading sites, but otherwise be low when idle. Memory usage would remain high as long as it's opened. But given the limited system resources and the heavyweight programs running, such high percentages seem normal.

That looks OK to me. Windows 7 will use as much as it needs and manages the memory so that frequently used programs remain in memory unless it is needed for something else. It really is not worth disabling services you will end up doing more harm than good.

Hello,
Recently my laptop started functioning very badly, slowing down suddenly, then crashing, even thought I wasn't running too many processes or taxing it too hard. For a while I thought it might be a virus or malware, but running any scan was an exercise in futility since the computer slowed down so much, even in safe mode, to the point where a single antivirus scan wouldn't finish after 24 hours. I finally managed to scan with spybot overnight and though it found some tracking cookies and other junk, there was nothing that seemed very serious and the problems persisted.

I then tried a different approach, simply monitoring the CPU and memory usage as I used the computer. I noticed that the % of physical memory used did not go above 45-ish% even when more and more processes started running and demanding memory. After a while of that is when the computer would crash.

So basically I have 4GB of memory, but the computer does not use more than 1.6GB or so even when it needs it and this keeps leading to crashes. This wasn't the case a few days ago. I tried switching the port the memory stick is in and that did not help. I added a 1GB memory stick I had lying around and that helped a little, because now the computer goes up to 2.2GB and 50% of physical memory. But expect any more and it crashes.

Why is half my memory unused? Any ideas? I'm leaning towards a physical problem with the memory stick or motherboard.

So I just finished running a memory test in BIOS and it passed. ... Read more

A:Physical Memory usage does not go above 45%

To check your memory run memtest86+ RAM - Test with Memtest86+ It is best run overnight as you should run at least 7 passes which will take quite a few hours.

For a virus check, try running Windows Defender Offline. this will tell you how. Windows Defender Offline

OK - I know my system specs aren't brilliant with only 1Gb RAM, however didn't think when I bought the laptop with Vista Home SP1 I'd be clocking around 850Mb with only IE open!

Is there a reason it's so high or is it just the way it is these days with all this glitzy new software? Should I have gone for a better spec?
 

A:84% Physical Memory usage?

I think people normally advise to run Vista with at least 2gb of RAM for it to run quite well. I don't have Vista myself but i would assume it's probably taking nearly 75% of the RAM just to run the operating system and its essential processes.
IE wouldn't take much of your Laptops' resources to run.

First off, I apologize if I am not doing this properly, but I always seem to have a problem of not knowing exactly where to post something, especially with so many pages to look through for a specific topic. That said...

I just bought an emachines T3642, AMD Athlon 4000+, single core and very good, Vista Home Premium. I have a question as to what it actually means when I open up my Task Manager and I read this at the bottom of the Task Manager Window.

Processes running are generally between upper 50's and lower 60's, CPU usage is generally between 2% and 7%, but the Physical memory is rarely if ever under low 60's%. What I'm asking is does that mean that I'm using 61% of my 1 gig of memory that came with this unit and if so, is that a high number. You know a lot of stuff comes preinstalled and I'm always worried about uninstalling anything that I didn't install myself for fear of doing damage to my computer.

Also, when I initially open the Task Manager, in the CPU Usage area, anywhere from 80 to 100% will flash for a moment, and then drop down to the single digits percentage. I am aware of a lot of processes running in background, but should I be concerned about the 80 to 100% that does flash for just that moment.

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.

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)

Initial Issues:
Recently my computer began having problems at startup. The computer would load to the windows start up screen (black with the 4 spinning balls that combine to the windows icon) and then shut itself off.

Initial Troubleshooting:
At first I thought this was the PSU, which I tried replacing from another computer, but this did not change anything. Eventually I tried moving around my RAM sticks. After moving around the sticks, the computer would start up and runs, however I have a new problem.

Current Issue:
My computer is currently running very slowly. Checking resource monitor shows that ~4gigs of my 6 gigs of ram is being reserved by hardware. System properties shows that i have 6gigs of RAM, but only 1.96gigs is useable.

As near as I can tell the first memory slot is broken as any stick in that slot will cause the computer to fail to start up. In fact, the monitor won't even receive a signal. That leaves only the 0xxx configuration for me to try. Even though the memo... Read more

Hi All,

I recently started a new job that requires me to view tons of webpages. I was running Firefox 3.6 without any problems, however when I upgraded to 4.0, I started having issues. After about an hour of working, when I load a page I start to see a flicker of a black screen, and then inevitability a short time later, the black screen remains and Firefox crashes. I was trying to figure out what was going on and noticed that my Physical Memory Usage was running about 1 GB without Firefox and 1.15 GB with it. I thought about downgrading to 3.6, but am concerned that they will stop releasing security updates. Also, when it crashes, I clear my history and cache, which fixes the issue for about an hour until it occurs again.

I have run Malwarebites, AdAware, and Disk Cleanup. My C drive is getting full, which might have something to do with it as well.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

800MB is not too much RAM for W7 to be using... especially with that video card. It takes some system RAM to make use of the RAM on the video card. The more RAM on the video card, the more system RAM needed to make use of it. I don't understand why that is, that is just what I've seen and read.

You can either add more system RAM (if possible) or spend time researching which apps you can safely prevent from starting. What anti-virus tool are you using?

I'm considering throwing my laptop out the second floor window, but before I do maybe someone can help me!
My computer has been acting up for sometime or maybe I should say slowing down. I've read through a number of similar threads and tried a few of the suggestions - running Malware, defraging the disc, without any improvement. In short, the entire systems bogs down even when I've only got a couple of applications running; yesterday it was Word and Excel. This doesn't happen everytime I use it but often enough to indicate there is a problem. Of course there are tons of things running in the background that I don't know how or if it is safe to shut down.

Finally things stopped altogether and after a few minutes I was able to start task manager - I was at 99% capacity of physical memory usage but very little CPU usage. I closed everything and googled the problem, tried a couple of things (above) and had to quit for the day without finding any problems. I've noticed that Word seems to be having problems but haven't had success fixing it.

I sometimes have to run the virtual machine which also seems to all of a sudden to have problems, but maybe that is an application thing, AutoCad 14 has decided to run differently than before.
