Realtek PCIE Memory Card Reader Causes 80% / CPU In System And Compressed Memory

Apr 4, 2016

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.

Performance :: System And Compressed Memory

Feb 23, 2016

Is there any way to stop the "system and compressed memory" from happening? I am so annoyed by it's constant 90% Memory usage! I used to have only 8 GB of RAM and it would use 7GB out of the whole 8GB. I recently upgraded to 16GB and everything was fine. System and Compressed memory was only using 1-2GB but now it's skyrocketed up to using 90% memory (14GB). What the hell is this feature?

System And Compressed Memory Maxed Out

Feb 26, 2016

I have a new Lenovo A740 all-in-one desktop. It has a core i7-4558U and 8GB of ram. It is also running a updated version of win 10 home. For some reason i keep getting a pop up on my screen that says "Close programs to prevent information loss, your computer is low on memory. Save your files and close google chrome". I never have a ton of intensive programs open and it always seems to pop up and tells me to close google chrome and/or Skype.

When i go into task manager and look at my processes google chrome and Skype are using a very low amount of memory. At the top of the processes there is "System and Compressed Memory" which is using 1,942.8MB of memory and my system says i am currently using 75% of total system memory. What could be causing this is how can i fix it.

Performance :: System And Compressed Memory Consuming 1-3GB Of RAM

Feb 10, 2016

Installed Win10 yesterday for free, everything went without a hitch that day. Today after rebooting and having installed new updates, I fire up World of Warcraft and after a minute of playing I get a freeze for 20 seconds, followed by an error message from Windows that WoW is causing memory issues.

I open up Task Manager and WoW is sitting at a happy ~1.5GB RAM usage, while another program called "System and Compressed Memory" is at 3.4GB RAM usage, after a minute it went back down to ~200MB, but kept spiking to 1-2GB

I read up on this process online, but only ever came up threads of people having issues about it consuming too much CPU, mine was sitting at 0-1% usage during that lockdown for that process.

The process is supposed to facilitate RAM usage, but so far it has only caused issues, and I never had any RAM issues on Win7. So, is there a way to shut this thing off?

Performance :: System And Compressed Memory Constantly At 35% CPU

Jan 4, 2016

I am having an issue with System and compressed memory constantly using at 35% CPU, resulting in the fans on my laptop running all the time and being very noisy.

I have read:

Solved Is this normal? System and compressed memory process ALWAYS at 20% cpu - Windows 10 Forums

Why is using so much CPU?? SB, th2, all updated and indexing done. : Surface

System and Compressed Memory Service High CPU Usage - Microsoft Community

and i have also tried adjusting the pagefile from system managed to Initial 2Gb and Maximum 8Gb, and disabling sleep.

But nothing i do seems to stop this usage, some people seem to report that it goes away after 30 minutes or so, or rebooting a few times seems to sort it out, but nothing seems to be working in my case!!!

I am running a genuine copy of windows 10 Pro...

Performance :: System And Compressed Memory Slowing Down Disk Operation?

Feb 23, 2016

I have win 10 64-bit home on a 4th gen core -i5 laptop. I have a WDC 1T 2.5" USB3 drive. It is about half full. It used to do 60-70MB/s write speed. Since a few days ago, I noticed it has slowed down by a factor of 5-6 to 10-20MB/s. While copying large files, I watched what's going go. The System and compressed memory process was doing a lot of read and write on the disk. If the copy speed reported by the dialog is say 15MB/s, then system compressed memory process is reading 15MB/s and writing 30MB/s. It looks like this process is reading back the content written and writes back. It is consistent over reboot with several large files from 200MB to 7GB in size.

A couple of weeks ago I did a file backup. I created a 5GB virtual drive on my SSD and dumped all files to be backed up. Took only 5 minutes to copy the 5GB files to the virtual drive and copy the file to the WDC disk, at around 67MB/s, typical of this type of portable drives. While I was wondering what was going on, I tested the same files with a USB3 dock and a 2TB Seagate drive. Write speed is about 150MB/s. So I thought it was not a problem with all disks. The WDC drive has no compress to save space option, BTW. I wonder what's going on. I have AVG antivirus and I turned it off while copying and same slow 15MB/s speed.

Drivers/Hardware :: Realtek USB 2.0 Card Reader

Dec 9, 2015

When I was viewing my windows 10 updates I saw some unusual update history of my Realtek USB 2.0 Card Reader, (see attachments)I very rarely use this on my Dell Inspiron ONE but thought I would just check it out, and it did of course not work, I tried to find the driver in Device Manager but could not find it? How to know about installing the driver again if it is missing, I tried an external usb card reader and this is seen in File Explorer unlike built in one with sd card inserted.

Drivers/Hardware :: Realtek Card Reader Keeps Disappearing?

Dec 6, 2015

I've just updated my Dell Inspiron 7537 laptop to Windows 10.

All is working fine apart from the built in Realtek card reader. When the PC starts, the card reader appears as a drive and I can read/write to the card. However, the reader will randomly show no content in file explorer and the drive disappears altogether if I remove and reinsert the card. The card reader reappears if I restart the PC. Device Manger shows no problems with the card reader.

I've tried the Dell Windows 10 driver, the latest driver on Realtek's site and the driver installed by Windows update but all fail in the same way. The card reader was fine in Windows 8 so I think it's a software issue.

Need To Specify Folder On A Drive For Autoplay Import From Memory Card

Aug 7, 2015

I'm stumped but before I upgrade to Windows 7. I have 1000's of photos stored on a separate hard drive system. In Win 7 I had set up auto play to save the photos to a folder on the external drive. In Win 10 I can't seem to do this, I've been to Settings/Devices - Auto Play, and in the end the only way round was to change the path of the system folder 'pictures' to the path on the drive. Photos now get imported to the right place but I'm not happy it being a system folder and the photos are imported into a folder named by the date. In Win 7 I could tag the photos on import and the folder & photos would be named with the tag and numbered sequentially. I need this functionality back.

System Process Using Memory

Aug 14, 2015

I see a lot of people talk about the system process and say it uses a large amount of ram when they aren't even doing anything, in my case it stays low except when I launch games.

For example I can run CSGO and system won't budge, then I can run League of Legends and itll jump to around 500-700mb or dayz where I've seen it jump to almost 2gb and dayz will actually go down in memory while system goes up. I also don't see any performance hits and when I close the game out it will shrink down to around 100mb.

My question is if this is supposed to be happening, I've found a fix in where I just disable Superfetch and system will never budge past 0.1mb. However I notice things like Skype will start using over 100mb where if superfetch was enabled it would sit at 35mb.

NT System And Kernel Taking 60% Memory

Aug 22, 2015

Since I have installed Windows 10 on my laptop there has been a significant amount of increase in RAM usage. Main contribution to it is coming from NT system and kernel, which is using around 60% of the memory. Is there any fix for it. I cannot use anything apart from Chrome, otherwise memory usage reaches the maximum limit.

Card Reader On Gateway FX530 Will No Longer Recognize SD Card When Inserted?

Aug 24, 2015

I have installed Windows10 on a Gateway FX530 desktop PC. All has gone well with one exception. The OS seems to recognize that there is a card reader attached, I can see them through Device manager. When I insert a SD card the system completely ignores the device and will not allow me to access it. I have tried to change the drivers, without success. This card reader worked just fine with Windows 7 Pro and there was no indication that they would not work with Windows 10 when I ran the upgrade test.

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.
