RAM overused?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Lately, while Ive been playing MW3 and Assassin's Creed Revelations, Ive been running out of RAM. Normally i would think to just shut down then boot up again and then the RAM would be cleared. But it hasn't. And rite now im at 5.32GB of RAM at start up. When i play games, i max it out almost and it tells me to stop playing MW3 or Assassin's Creed to prevent progress loss. Can anyone else think of ways to erase the RAM

Ram doesn't hold when the power is switched off. Something is loading it back up when you reboot. Check your running processes in the task manager for anything that is using lots of ram. If you see something suspicious, google it's name and find out what it is. If you can safely close it, then do. Turning off the search indexer and superfetch might help too. Since you have a ssd you should have done this already.
