-URGENT- My RAM (16gb) always running at 15.9%!

Im also getting very VERY bad hard faulting! Spikes of up to 400+ i think that is bad. Back soon!

If your actually doing something Hard faulting is very common.  And to see a few spikes is normal.

Basically it is when your swapping files from your page file to the actual RAM.

I have had my custom built pc for under a year. The first problem that i had with it was the GPU. It would randomly crash and stop working. That figured out to be because i had a cabletie in a bad spot and it was pulling on the GPU.
 
Now the newest addition to this PC is the RAM, i have 16 GB of DDR3 1600 Mh (auto over-clock to 1866) RAM from Kingston. The model name is Hyper x Fury.
 
The problen that i am having is it is always running at 100%. Even when the pc is at idle, im a gamer and it is making my games almost impossible to play. They will have a solid FPS from my GPU (780), but then i would have very bad lag spikes, causing me to have a unsatisfying experience while playing.
 
If you have any idea how to help plz respond. I have spent a lot of money on this pc and i would hate to ruin it!

 

Here is a screenshot of what i am talking about : http://i.imgur.com/zRDRPqb.png (also attached)

Download and run Malwarebytes.

I second this.

 

Also, uninstall programs you don't use and prevent programs from starting at boot unless they need to.


"In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Shari ‘a Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law. Russia does not need minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'." - Vladimir Putin. Other governments/leaders should take a leaf out of Vlad's book.

Go through the processes tab in task manager and see what's eating the ram.

Looks like Skype is pulling a lot of ram and so is chrome. Also a rather high number of Hard faults/sec

Not a problem, we are all still learning by the day :)

 

It's high because like my system is only having 1 or 2 faults now and then. I would suggest you run that Malwarebytes scan and see what it says.

I have finished the scan. It found one issue and that was in a GTA iv mod called LCPDFR. Its gone now, but no change to the ram usage! Im going to do another scan while i have a shower and we will see what happens then!

I would urge you to look at the picture you posted... AVG has like 8 things going on all at once (same exact .exe)...  I'd say that's a good start.  And if that doesn't work, back up your shit and do a clean install!

Notice how NONE of my processes repeat themselves? (you need to look at all graphs to diagnose problem, not just the memory chart.)

 

 

--- Edit

 

Honestly, why do people still install these 3rd party bloatwar.... I mean "security suites"?  They hinder your performance and often don't perform as well as what Windows gives you to begin with...

My suggestion is a clean OS install anyways...  Im willing to bet my next paycheck it fixes whatever issue it is.

MS security Essentials works fine as a baseline protection tool. Just make sure that you do second opinion scans every once in a while. Glad you solved the issue!
