8GB Memory gets stuck at 100%

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am having a pretty weird issue here, What happens is while i am playing a game( bf3) sometimes, half way through the game starts lagging heavily, so i quit the game, open task manager, and the memory useage is 100% - the full 8gb, and i have no apps open, and its a fresh install of windows 8

resource manager and task manager do not say anything is open that is using so much memory? could it be a hardware fault or windows 8 fault or bios?

What is using so much ram? It should tell you in the processes section of task manager (might have to check the box (show processes for all users).

Could be a memory leak in BF3 or Origin maybe?

Oh Windows 8.. could be that.

They changed task manager layout? I know on Win 7 there is a check box at the bottom to Show all processes.. hmm.

Does it only do this after you launch BF3. Might be able to narrow it down to the game or Origin or some other program like that.
