Why is my LT W7 consuming so much RAM and CPU load?
Why is my LT W7 consuming so much RAM at 76% and CPU load?
Windows 7 64 bit. Lap top.
When the Lap top is initially turned on at the desktop RAMis 22%.connect to internet RAM jumps to 57% then open a word doc. RAM jumps to76%.
My HTPC RAM usallely stays around 25%.
Thephysical RAM of HTPC is 6 GB DDR 3 1333 MHz..
The LT has not slowed down however I have observed higherCPU temps. So I have to close apps. Or open windows.
I have recently observed the CPU load on both cores what is regularly2% load to jump to 48+%.
Thephysical RAM of LT is 4 GB DDR 3 1333 MHz.. which is 33% less than the HTPC.
I resently installed a W7 gaget to the DT where I observedhow much CPU and RAM where being used the RAM seams very high at 76% even w/ noprograms running is this normal?
I have two browsers internet explorer and chrome I normalleyuse explorer because it saves my passwords and user names ect. Chrome doesn’t,I use chrome for a few sites because I like the saved history.
Not sure if chrome is always running even if I’m not usingit.
LT has not slowed down any just curious if RAM is weakeningon my 3 year old Lap top?
I’m real concerned about the CPU load like it’s normalley0-2% load go to a word doc. Or a website like AVS forum and it jumps to 50+% then it will stabilize go back to 0-2% loadthen back up this can’t be normal?
I did a restore point to two weeks in past also did theupdates
still have high RAM and CPU load consumption.
I did a memory diagnose test and memory is fine.
