Pc running slow

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

 

My pc has been running very slow recently and have been told many times to get a ssd. The thing is that the problem is not in disk usage it is in memory usage. Do I need more ram or an ssd?

 

Thanks,

Dylan

Memory = RAM.

You can see in task manager what fails exactly, I guess you have 4GB of RAM?

When you encounter slowness click Ctrl+Shift+Esc and a Windows Task Manager will appear. Check how much "Memory" or "Physical Memory" is used and let us know. Please also tell us how much RAM and how much free space on your disk you have. We will help you out .

Yeah I am aware of that and that is how I know how much memory is being taken up. Disk is normally at 0-10 percent at idol, CPU is at 0-20 percent at idol while memory (RAM) is at 80-90 percent while idol. Not sure what is going on and why. Also I have 8gb ddr3 ram.

That is unusual. Open Windows Task Manager, click on Processes tab and click on Memory column. Tell us what do you see in first 5 rows?

Google chrome, discord, Antimalware service executable, cortana, nividia container. The antimalware service executable thing is always taking up a lot. I tried to look up videos to fix it bit all it did was help with it eating up my cpu and disk usage. I dont have any other antivirus software either so I do not want to disable it even if I could.
