I have a new Acer laptop. Specs are Windows 7 Ultimate (x86), 2GB RAM, Core i5 480M, HD6550 gfx (1GB dedicated memory) card and 600GB HDD.
Whenever I turn on the laptop, the computer is extremely slow and prone to crashing. I checked Task Manager and it seems that despite having no programs running, the RAM is 98% utilised.
The odd thing is the processes listed do not account for the RAM which is used up. I did a memcheck on the RAM and no errors were found.
If I disable Aero then the RAM goes back down to a normal 25%. Any ideas? I like Aero, would suck if I can't use it.
