It doesn't matter if I'm playing a game or just browsing the web and it seems to happen randomly. All of a sudden, my computer slows to a crawl and task manager says 95-95% of all my memory is being used up even though I don't see any processes using any unusual amounts of memory. It goes away if I restart the computer or wait like 30 minutes but it's really annoying to deal with. I ran memtest and that didn't give me errors so it's not a problem with my RAM. Anyone have any clue as to what could be causing this?
Windows 7 and 4 GB RAM.
Did you click on "Show all processes from all users"? That might show some system processes that are the culprit(s).
Yeah, doesn't show anything out of the ordinary.
Have you used media center to stream anything lately? I ran into a bug in Win 7 where if I streamed to my xbox and then turned off the xbox Meida center would keep allocating memory until there was none left. Pain in the ass.
Nope, I don't use Media Center.
