HP ProBook 450 high memory utilization

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

HP ProBook 450 high memory utilization is running constantly at 86% with only the basic applications running such as Outlook and web browsers. This is happening on many laptops of the same hardware in my company. Even after a fresh install and basic applications installed. Machines have 8 gigs of memory installed with SSD drives

Hi,

If you go into Task Manager you should be able to see what processes or services are using the memory.

 

Let me know,

David

I understand. If you go to Task Manager and click on the memory tab you should be able to see what is using the RAM

Example:

Can you click on memory at the top of list so we can get a better view of what is being used. You can see that 3.2GB is being used only by the appplications you have open. If you click on memory at topof list we will be able to see if the system services and processes are using a lot of RAM.

Memory will also be used based on the amount of memory available. So, if you had 4Gb the computer would use less and be slower. If you have more such as 16GB as in my case, you can see that with Firefox open and one other application the notebook is using 6.7GB
