Hi there,

I have a problem with my laptop currently.
These are the specs btw :

i5 8250
4GB RAM
MX 150
1 TB HDD + 120GB SSD
15.6 inch
Windows 10

I moved the HDD into the optical drive via a HDD caddy and added an SSD (120GB)

My question now is why is my memory running so high in the task manager? When I bootup/idle, its 40 - 50%. When I am using a browser (chrome or mozilla) it gets to around 80% - 85% and thats when my laptop becomes laggy and it finally will freeze ultimately requiring to be turned off and on again.

Is it cause I have insufficient RAM?
Or something else? icon_question.gif

Thank you notworthy.gif

Try using CCleaner to clean temp and use Adwcleaner to scan remove the junk toolbar.

Manual way is type at the search %temp%

Delete all the temp files.

Press CTRL+ALT+DEL button on your keyboard, click on Task Manager and look at the Processes to know what is taking up all the memory. Do check your system for any viruses and malwares. Disable those unnecessary programs running in Startup.
