W8.1 Memory problems (leak?)

    Windows 8.1 (HOME not Pro) 64bit

    my 2 cents..

    -1st of all this is a game.. totally going to have problems with games.. these programmers today don't do anything they are supposed to.. (look at old games compared to today when they come out with games.. no testing.. beta's this and that.. what a joke..)

    anyway, 4 gigs of ram to be honest in my humble opinion is too small.. i have 16 gigs right now all i paid was like $90-120.. i'm sure its cheaper now even.. but you do get problems when you go with cheaper ram..

    - Do you have any rapid programs on? Intel Rapid technology etc? anything like that? you need to know what you have installed on your system.. if this happened straight after a CLEAN install of windows 8.1 then you definitely know something is fishy.. but otherwise god knows what you have tweaked and installed since your 1st day of using windows..

    go on the alien isolation forum and post about your problem and maybe you'll even find other players have this issue.. i have a strong feeling it's just yet another example of game makers throwing out crap (or non-optimized code)

    below is my cached ram usage right now..

    Oh and yeah, notice my 87 Reserved.. (in picture above post)

    you are screwed up man.. 3 gigs reserved for you?

    time to clean out your computer.. you definitely tweaked something or have something's so clear..

    *edit* - oh and by the way, that picture above was after I've had my system for 5+months and absolutely insanely tweaking and messing with it and installing and removing things I shouldn't and definitely using programs i should not be using that can cause crashing and instability.. and you name it.. i've been messing up my system.. registry hack crap, uninstalling net framework, removing this, that.. and today still i have no major problems like you have.. (*or 3.0gigs reserved)

    Not here in Australia.

    I'm glad I bought my 8GB kit (DDR3 1333) in January 2013 ($50 Au).
    A couple of months after that purchase, the price doubled and it hasn't gone down since.
    As far as I can tell, that price increase was across all RAM sizes and types.

Hello all. New member here. I have had an issue with my PC since I "upgraded" to windows 8.1 earlier this year that is driving me batty. Unfortunately, I upgraded the hardware (motherboard, CPU, and RAM) at the same time, so I can't rule out a hardware issue completely. The issue stuck around...
Been trying to hunt down a memory leak for about a week now and I've finally narrowed it down to the storport.sys driver. Trouble is, this is a Microsoft driver for HDD storage ports.

Recently I started to receive Windows messages asking for closing the game to avoid data loss. I noticed hat Ghosts was using around 28GB of RAM.

Not sure how best to describe this problem other than a temporary memory leak that I can't determine the cause of. It's been happening for about the last 8 months or so, and happens maybe once a month. I'm running Windows 8.1 with all the latest updates installed. Basically, over a period of 2-3...
Hey guys, I have no programs running, just chrome with a couple of websites. On my previous pc with windows 7 i've never had the memory use more than 5 GB just for chrome. Also, the paged pool seems to fill up the longer I use my pc. I've read numerous threads with people saying that it is...

Hello, Since i've upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 on my laptop (Lenovo G500S) I've been getting errors and BSODs while playing games. This are mostly games which use over 1GB of RAM (League of Legends, Chivarly Medieval Warfare and Red Orchestra 2) it gives the error: Please shutdown...
Just got on the computer now, and suddenly everything seems to be slow, I checked the memory and found out that some program is using 94% of the memory, when I was looking for the program I found out that no program is using that amount of memory, 200 at most. I downloaded RAMmap to map out the...
