I'm running a 64 bit Windows 10 laptop. On idle, the System process is showing a high memory usage of more than 150 MB, usually more than 200 MB. Using poolmon the pooltag SpDN showed up with a memory leak. It leads to the Intel Matrix Storage Manager driver, iaStorV.sys. How should I go about fixing the problem?
i have recently installed win10 and after a few days i have noticed that it uses all my memory(8gb) in the following scenario:
i let the computer overnight watching a stream and an online radio station.the next morning i have noticed that the computer was a little bit laggy, ind i opened task manager where it showed 97% memory usage.The funny fact is if i added up alll the provcesses memory usage und it was about 1.2 gb ram
i7 - 4770k proc gtx 970 video 8 gb hyperX red memory
after upgrading to windows 10 my laptop fan always working fast when i checked this issue, i see runtime broker in task manager with high resourse usage when i click on end task, everything be normal... but runtime broker run itselft immediately ...i googled this issue but i couldn't find a useful solution.
After installing Windows 10, I have consistently been getting high memory and cpu usage by both the System and Service Host: Local System processes. Usually the usage keeps rising from 1GB to sometimes 8GB. I left my comp on while I was at the gym today and came home to it prompting me with a low memory available message. This must have shut down some processes because now my pc is running at 13% memory and 2% cpu. I have searched for this issue and found similar threads, but none of the solution work for me.
I've had this problem where my disk usage would spike to 100% before going back down to like 2%. I looked at countless forum posts and different sites and I found something which was a temporary fix, which was turning off tips about windows...
That worked for a while, and it just makes the intervals in-between the spikes longer, and now my memory has started to spike pretty high to about 99%, and wont come back down. When it does this I have to do a hard shut down as my pc just slows to unusable...
I also tried disabling ndu.sys in the registry, which didn't work either.
I recently bought a new laptop which had Windows 8.1. After a week of having it I noticed my Disk Space near 100%. I heard this was a common problem so installed CCleaner and did disk space cleaner however none of it worked.
I then upgraded to Windows 10 as a friend said this solved the problem for him, however, since doing so either the disk space, Memory or CPU are high either one at a time or all together, regardless of what I am doing on the laptop.
The first week of having the laptop I don't believe this was a problem so I think it's something to do with an update as all games ran smoothly.
When I run a game or bring up firefox near the top is always 'system (ntoskrnl)' or a few 'service host (svchost)'. I dont believe its the games I play or firefox as like I said it was fine for the first week. It seems windows are running stuff behind the scenes.
I have done a few things that I have found on the internet but none have worked like; disable prefact and superfetch or whatever they are called. Still seeing increase in memory or disk usage whenever i load something and system or serice host are there at the top of performance or the game seems to use alot - however again the game never did this in the first week.
For a while I 'm having problems with locking while I surf the internet after five minutes browsing the facebook the browser begins to catch and is impossible to do anything , I noticed that this occurs when the system and compressed memory reaches 15% use the CPU when closing facebook use immediately falls to less than 1 % and the browser back to normal. I never had it before and started to happen with these recent updates.
A while ago, after upgrading to Win10, my memory usage jumped to 99% percent while watching a movie via VLC player. I couldn't find anything in the task manager that seemed to use up all 16 gb of my memory, the new layout of task manager confused me a bit, so I simply rebooted. Fixed the problem.
Today The same thing happened to me again, except this time the memory usage continues AFTER a reboot, and then another reboot. My desktop computer seems completely possessed by whatever is using up my memory. I consider myself to be a very advanced user, although not a professional, but I can't figure out how to nail down this culprit via the task manager. Nothing seems to be using up a lot of memory, the total of all the apps isn't close enough, yet it does identify my memory usage at 99%. There were no unusual apps running in the background, just VLC running an HD 1080p movie, which I have done many times on that computer.
I can imagine this will happen again if I don't find the issue. Where to start troubleshooting to find a memory hog that only happens once in a great while? Does it have anything to do with windows updating itself secretly and automatically now?
When I am downloading something with utorrent the memory usage in task manager slowly creeps to 100% and makes my computer unusable and even if I shut down utorrent the memory usage does not change and I have to restart my PC. Same goes for browsing facebook or any other sites. Is there a solution to this? I really don't want to reinstall my system.
Task manager says my PC uses 95-100% of its memory, with the process using the most called "system" at only 200MB out of 8GB, if I set it to display how much it's using in percentages, it says 40-60%.
I'm running Windows 10 Home 64bit, on a 4770k with an MSI MPower Max Z87 Board and 8GB out of a 16GB kit of Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz CL10 RAM (I need to RMA the other 8GB, it's broken), CPU overclocked to 4.0GHz, no memory overclock.
I'm wondering whether it's a software or hardware problem, and if it's the former, how can I fix it?
Recently I am getting notification that my memory is low, close some application to free the memory. But I wasn't running any high memory consuming programs. Then I looked into my Task manager and got this :
I am really not sure why this is taking so much memory. This Service Host: Local System continuously taking more and more memory and it moves total memory upto 80% ....
This didn't happen before I am recently facing this problem. How I can stop this so that it doesn't take this unusual memory. I checked windows update but no update is pending.
I have an HP DV4 Laptop(i5, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) that came with Windows 7, I recently updated to Win10. Everything seems fine except of the high CPU usage in System and Compressed memory. I narrowed it down to the Realtek Memory Card reader. I should also mention that right after the Win10 update two Realtek Memory Card Reader entries were in Device Manager with yellow exclamation icons.
I deleted them and had Windows install the drivers from Windows updates, after that everything LOOKS fine. And there's only one entry now.After a while I noticed the fan making a lot of noise, wasn't like that in Win7.Anyway, after hours of troubleshooting I eventually came back to the Realtek reader, sure enough after disabling it CPU went to normal.I have also downloaded the newest driver from realtek site.
I upgraded to Windows 10 about a month ago, aside from the learning a new system issues I haven't had many problems. I first noticed issues with accessing my secondary drive (URL...), then the programs started hanging up. Within the last week or so my computer's memory usage has been been at 98% and up. So much so that just switching from one program to another takes several seconds and opening a new program almost shuts down my computer.
I have windows 10 64 bit, edition Windows 10 Pro, Version 1511, OS Build 10586.104
Processor : i5-4690k Ram (installed) : 16gb Video card : gtx 970 with 4gb vram.
Computer is slow at times lately. Memory Usage in task manager is constantly high when this occurs. Not many Operations are open and running. I am having fps drops while gaming as well that is annoying. Attached image of processes and percent of usage across cpu,memory, disk, and network currently ...
9:45 pm - Just tried to shutdown windows via task bar and windows cycle through shutting down, blink black scree, pc stayed on, windows popped back up. Hard shutup via pc case i/o button and windows still tried to cycle through shuttind down, blinking black screen, pc on still, and windows flicked back on and then shutoff completely.
I have an old VAIO Laptop-VPCEC4S0E, and I really wanna boost it. So it came with window 7 and I updated to window 10 on my hdd. Now the things I wanna do are as follows. The laptop is very slow, and there is nothing at all on it that i need. I need to destroy whatever is on it, and get it back to factory settings. Will that return it to window 7? I dnt know. On the other hand, I want to remove my hdd and replace it with an ssd.
Plus i wanna remove my old memories and put newer ones (6gb into 8gb).Should I start with restoring to factory settings (again not sure if it will be back to win7), then install window 10 on hdd, then clone it to the ssd, then swap the hdd with the ssd? is that the right order of doing these things. And I will fit the memory change with the hdd-ssd swap.In I wanna make my old laptop like a new purchased laptop with an SSD, new memory and a Window 10 on it.
Okay, Well windows 10 is giving me crap. I have two memory slots, 1 is being used. It tells me that i'm using, like 2.0 GB out of 1.6GB. What? I disabled page-file for much faster speed, and it worked. But i'm not even using 1GB in memory, even when i plus all the memory used together.
Btw i cannot turn page file back on, lags WAY to much. And this is a new hard drive.
