Audiodg.exe (Ram Usage, NOT CPU Usage)
My Audiodg.exe process is currently using 2,786,070 kB (not just normal bytes, kilobytes) of Ram. 2.66gb+ of Ram! I have searched the web as well as this site for any problems. My audio is working fine though... I have no idea why this using so much ram. Im guessing a memory leak of some kind... I restartand it starts off at a normal pace...

RAM Usage
Now that the whole "bitstory" is clear to me, I've got another question.

At the moment I've got a Windows Vista 32 bit version and 4 GB of RAM.

32 bit Windows 7 requires at least 1 GB of RAM, but can only use around 3.5 RAM.

64 bit Windows 7 requires at least 2 GB of RAM, but can use larger amounts of RAM.

Now whats best for me?

Buy a 64 version so I can use my full amount of RAM (but loose 2GB for the OS)

or just upgrade to a 32 bit version, neglecting the 0.5 RAM that Windows cant use?

(how much RAM does Windows 7 (32/64) use in an idle situation?)

Ram Usage Keeps Going Up?
When I turn on or restart my PC after everything is loaded the task manager says I'm using 25% of my Ram. After two or three days my ram usage goes up to 50% while just sitting there.

It never really goes up past 50-55% but I want to know why it starts at 25% and then goes to 50%.

Slowly RAM Usage Has Been Going Up?
A month or so ago my computer was fine. Gradually, slowly RAM usage has been going up. I used to be able to run multiple aps at once, no problem. Computer has gradually slowed more and more. Can't run more than a couple aps at once without it slowing to the point it is useless. At start up with no aps launched RAM usage is 83+%. What is going on now that was not a couple months ago? I have poked around in Task Manager but do not really understand what I am seeing there. Windows 7. I updated to IE 9. I have Norton Internet Security. I have run Malwarebytes, Smart Defrag 2 and Advanced SystemCare 4.

RAM Usage Is So High?
Whenever I am on my computer My RAM usage is really high. More than I think I could ever use up! When I am not on an App/ Browser my RAM Usage is still above 50-60%. I also think my internet connection has something to do with it because when ever I try to load a video/website it takes more than 10minutes to load a 30 second video!

RAM Usage Seems To Rise
I'm on the RTM build (one of the custom "touched" builds) and I've noticed that my RAM usage seems to rise the longer I'm on.

For instance: Yesterday I came home from work and started my machine. After startup the RAM was at around 27% just idling. I then checked my mails, looked at various news sites, and then browsed this forum, all the while playing music through Winamp.

At this point my RAM was around 31% which seems fine as I was doing various things at once.

I then closed Firefox and , leaving Winamp playing music (no visualization), sat back in my chair to read the newspaper.

After about an hour of this I returned to the pc to put on some different music and my RAM is at 40%!

After another hour or so it was at 42%.

It's not Winamp related or music related as I noticed the same thing the other day when I had literally closed all major apps and just had the desktop up.

So it just seems that it is length of time related.

Minimalist RAM Usage
When I run windows 7 idle, I get somewhere in the neighborhood from 600 MB used (for a second or two after start up) to about 900 MB used. This is from an idle computer running no programs, with Windows Classic theme and thus (I believe) Aero disabled, but it seems a little high. I've heard of people getting their netbooks to run on 250 mb idle and other nice numbers, and I'd like the same for my laptop (if possible).

I'm running an Intel C2D 2.33 GHz laptop with 4GB of RAM with Windows 7 RC 7100 x64. RAM is limited to 3.37 GB, because the motherboard doesn't address that high (turning on PAE and turning off DEP haven't helped the issue).

I understand that the fact I have so much RAM could be why Windows 7 is being liberal with its use, but I thought I would see if there were any tricks I could pull to get such low numbers. I've not gone through Black Viper's service list yet, so that may yield some results, bu I don't think it would yield a 400-700 MB difference.

RAM Usage At 46% Idle
My Win 7 Acer RAM (3GB) is running at 46% idle? This seems to be alot?

Though it does not increase that much with windows open, even when I open WMP and play music it only goes up to 49-50%.

I use the gadget on screen and double check it with task manager, they are the same.

This is more than the previous Vista Basic machine, which I returned, it ran at 40%?

Is there a way to adjust or sort this?

Oh, this morning it went up 99% and I could not switch it off, I had to hold the button to switch off?

CPU And RAM Usage
is there a reason why when i run a programe like antivirus scan or adaware my cpu dosent use all of its capabilities to speed up the scanning process?

for instance with firefox, adaware scanning and what ever progs are in the back ground running my cpu usage is still at a steady 5%, why isnt that upto say 70% so the scan will be done a lot quicker?

High RAM Usage
I just reformatted my computer to windows 7.

And i'm kinda disappointed on its performance compared to some reviews i've seen in the web.
It seems that my computer consumes alot of RAM if i'm not mistaken.

Here are my processes and memory usage:

i have 4gb ram installed, but i installed win7 x32bit.

So when i on photoshop or other program that uses alot memory, the ram usage goes to 1.6-1.8 GB.
And during that time i felt some lag.

Ram Usage Issue
I am having a problem regarding Ram Usage in Windows 7. Apparently I am using Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and 4 gigs of Ram. So the problem occurs every times I use Internet activities like surfing or download. The problem is that Ram would get used up; the physical memory percentage when I start the computer is around <50% but it would gradually build up until more than 90% and then my computer changes it's resolution and hangs.

It happens especially when I download gigs of data from Internet. Strangely, when I use torrent, nothing happens. I never encounter the same problem with Windows XP or Vista before. Please help me, I have been searching the Internet for a solution but yet found one.

Windows 7 RAM Usage Error?
I have a Hp Pavilion dv7 with Windows 7 Home premium 64bit. on it. I have the pc now a year and recently it crashed because of a malware program. I backed everything up and restored my pc to shipping options. After this restore I get a lot of problems with my RAM usage (my pc has 3gb ram). When I work with normal things on the computer it mostly lasts for like 1 or max. 2 hrs before it freezes and i have to reboot. When i play a game like League of Legends, it mostly lasts for like 20 minutes and 50 minutes with game booster on. The point is, before my crash , my pc didn't have these RAM problems... I played LOL as much as i wanted to but now i can't play at all.

RAM Usage Surges After Installing
RAM idles at around 25-30% with a Firefox and a few small apps on.

I install a PC game and RAM goes up to 80% usage. The problem is, the RAM usage stays that high (around 80%) even after the installation is finished.

This has happened every time I install a game. Installing normal programs don't do that though.

Wondering why it's like that.

Physical Ram Usage Spikes To 99%?
On occasion my physical memory usage will quickly rise form between 1 to 2 gigs of memory usage to over four until it reaches 98-99% percent of memory usage. I am running on 5 gigs of ram. This problem has even occurred while the computer was essentially idle. When this happens the computer loses almost all functionality. I've tried ending all non-essential processes to alleviate this problem but it makes no difference.

RAM Usage At 96% 10 Mins After Boot Up?
My friend has an HP Presario notebook which she is having trouble with and asked me to take a look at it.In short, its Win 7 x64 Home Premium with 2GB RAM and an Intel Celeron CPU (i forget which model of CPU).Unit boots fine, and logs on, but what struck me was it was very very slow. brought up task manager and checked the performance tab and the CPU was fluctuating between a relatively low level of 4% - 10% but sometimes did shoot up to 50% - to be honest, with it being a Celeron I kinda figured this could be "normal" as its not exactly a brilliant chip. - other opinions welcomed on that pointHowever, the Memory usage as up at 1.35GB and continued to rise to 1.89GB - the machine only has 2GB of RAM and it literally took about 10 minutes to do anything.

I did the usual, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan - found nothing - Removed the rubbish Norton and installed MS Security Essentials - scanned - found nothing.Removed any and all of the HP Cackware and anything else that looked odd. The finally I removed a lot of rubbish from the MSCONFIG.Rebooted the machine and checked Task Manager again - this time, instead of 88 processes running, I only had 63 running - but yet again, RAM usage was up at 1.35GB. The HDD is not full and has plenty of space.So I felt stumpedDid some reading online and set the value to 1 in the registry.After changing the ClearPageFileAtShutdown value, when I booted back into Windows, the RAM usage was down to 837MB and fluctuated upto abour 1.3GB thought I had sussed it. So one more time I ran MS Security essentials for one last scan - it again found no issue but immediateley after doing this, the RAM usage shot right back upto 1.89GB and above and the problem instantly returned.

Upgrade From Xp To 7 To Improve Ram Usage
I am using a school laptop running winxp that has 2 GB ram. But it still uses 1 GB of the page file in addition to the physical ram. I heard that windows 7 has "better" performance that xp.

I was wondering if upgrading to vista and then 7 would help reduce ram usage. I suspect it is the educational crapware loaded on the laptop that is hogging the ram with background processes and the like, but I don't see how it can take up an entire 2 GB ram + 1 GB page file.

Ram Usage While Installing Games And Pc Freeze
I've had this problem only on windows7, for every game I've installed.

Basically, during the installation all of the RAM is used up, and when it ends the system won't free up the RAM, the PC is dead slow and I have to restart it.

It's not a hardware problem, these are my specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.0ghz

RAM DDRII 4GB 800mhz

Motherboard: ASUS P5Qpro

ATI RADEON 4850 Toxic 512mb

Windows 7 RTM x64

has this happened to anyone else?

it's never happened to me with Windows XP, nor Vista, or even Ubuntu.

i used to have 2GB RAM, then when this happened I upgraded to 4 but it made no difference.
