I have 12 GB of memory... I never thought I would ever run into low memory errors...
After ~20-30 minutes of normal use, I keep receiving low memory errors. I checked in Task Manager, and saw no processes that were using a lot of memory, the highest usage being about 100 MB... After a few minutes after the errors, most of my open programs would crash, and then Windows would become unusable, requiring a forced-restart... I am completely clueless what could possibly be causing these errors... Any ideas?
What I've tried:
> Running Memory Diagnostics [Extended], No errors
> Increasing Virtual Memory, No effect
I'd also run Malwarebytes or any other anti-virus solftware you may have, this sounds like a virus to me tbh. Also what OS are you using ? Win 7 Ultimate, which I use averages 1.5-2GBs *and like you doesn't show in taskmanager*.
I also have 12GBs of ram, but I also run Advanced system care pro, which has a little app that free's up ram. I also noticed that after using apps that use a lot of ram *like handbrake* that my in use ram go's way down, sometime's below 1GB *wish it was always like that lols*. Hope some of this helps .
Alright, I ran a full scan, and my system was clean.
I did find out that Google Chrome is eating up my memory, even though it doesn't add up in Task Manager... [killing all chrome.exe processes]
However, I don't understand why chrome is using up so much memory, I only have two extensions running [AdBlock & Force-Reload]. I'm going to try reinstalling it.
