I had an issue like this. For me it was my Killer Network drivers. I'd start in that area, look up drivers and memory leaks associated with them.

>> No.64498018

Windows by itself takes about 2gigs of RAM. You might be having a lot of tabs on normie Chrome browser. Switch to Waterfox or Firefox. You also could be having a lot of background processes. Uninstall old programs, and have at the maximum 2 virus and malware protection programs.

>> No.64498051

Chrome wasn't open so I didn't have any tabs up. I'm uninstalling killer performance suite and installing just the driver because apparently memory leaks are common with Killer
Also I don't like firefox

Yeah man. That snappiness feels really good when I boot up Manjaro or Debian. The only reason I run Windows 10, is because I have a vidya machine.

Do you know how RAM works?

It loads programs and files from your hard-drive into RAM so that its more easily accessible by your CPU and other processing components.

As you load a program or open a document things get pushed into random access memory. When its full, new data overwrites the old data no longer being used (that game you were playing an hour ago).

for me it's "disk usage"
what the fuck is wrong with win 10 and "disk usage"?

>> No.64500120

Well okay?
Dude that's happening on my dad's computer as well. A fucken 100% disk usage. You probably have some sort of malware reading and writing in the background. Install Malwarebytes and clean out your PC. Found a lot of malware, adware, and Trojans on his PC. Also, try and keep atleast 50 gigs of free storage. Get rid of bloatware, and disable apps which open on startup. Should help.

>> No.64501863

CPU tab. What's the uptime?

Mine slowly leaks memory over the course of a few weeks until it's like that and I reboot. I think it's probably because I'm using VMware Workstation 11, which is not compatible with current builds of Windows 10, and does dick around in the kernel quite a bit. It could also be a crapass driver.

Either way, it's not in any process that Task Manager or Resource Monitor can see, so I assume it's either kernel, hardware, or BIOS. I've looked at kernel allocations with poolmon -b, and Toke, CM31, SeAt and MmSt are large, but like 1 GB total in 11 GB used.

I don't know where it's all going at this point and don't know how to probe it further.

>> No.64501908

For the 100% disk usage it can be viruses and malware, but I saw this happenning on one of my workplace user's computers and they can't install anything so I dug a bit deeper to find the issue.
Turns out windows 10 got some weird issues with the StorAHCI.sys driver
Si I changed a registry key and the disk usage went down to 20%

Just do a quick search on google for "windows 10 100% disk usage" and you'll find solutions, the 7th from drivereasy website is what I used.

Quit it man. I use Linux myself, but I have a Windows system for my vidya. And my Dad uses Windows. It's a system which just werks. No configuration required. I understand it's a breach of privacy, but again it werks. And that's all that matters for the average user. No need to be so salty or hateful. Let people be, and let them use what they want. You use Linux all you want, no one's stopping you. Why do you barge into give your dumb opinion everytime?

after that you have to reseat all your RAM sticks and figure out which one is fucked (if it's actually fucked).

>> No.64503537

I mean, did you get a notification or something when booting that your ram is dead, or you just don't notice it until after you open task manager?

>> No.64503549

Nothing would really happen unless all the sticks failed. If one stick just dies completely then it's like you only have 3 sticks in there and the computer doesn't see any problem with that because you could do that if you wanted.

Check if there's a process (or more) with an abnormal number of threads (more than 500 for example), if any, post result or try to identify what is it, and try to update the software who may use it or remove it from your system.

Don't know what this guy is talking about.

When there is anything wrong with your ram, you are going to notice it. When my 4GB stick died I got kicked from 2 consecutive CS:GO ranked game, the cheat detection found something wrong. After a few bson I just ran memtest and got hundreds of errors instantly. Started popping out sticks until I found which one caused it.
