Windows 7: O% CPU Usage, 54 Physical Memory

O% CPU Usage, 54 Physical Memory

Don't know much about computers, but...just started occasionally getting one short beep or two short beeps every once in a while. Read thru a few forums, and found some responses concerning memory. Checked my Task Manager (I'm on Windows 7 on an Acer laptop a few months old) and all the CPU usage was at 0, but the usage at the bottom was changing from 9% to maybe 45%. I checked off show processes from all users, but it didn't make a difference. Also, the physical memory reads anywhere from 35-45%. Aside from a small slowdown in things like typing on a website (or here), there are no significant problems. I ran a virus scan, and rebooted, to no avail. But if it's beeping, there must be something wrong. Is it time to consider repair shop? Any one with any ideas?

HI,

Physical memory increases when many applications run simultaneously reaching a bottleneck.Computers always need enough physical memory for smooth handling all running applications. According to the size and usage of application, consumes more memory. Operating system itself consumes some memory for handling all applications. So running out of memory lead to the unresponsive operating system.
Open Resource Monitor and click on the Memory tab. That will show you how your RAM is being used. Windows 7 is a lot better at allocating and using memory than previous versions of Windows. The basic philosophy of Windows 7 is "unused RAM is wasted RAM." Please post a screenshot of the Memory tab.

Resource Monitor

Please upload full spec of your system and pictures of the services and process running , for detail analysis .

Pedroc-
Keep in mind I am not a computer wiz. I am not sure what you mean by "speccy or cpu id"

AliKhan - How do I upload to this forum, and what screens would help?

Everything is normal with your memory and C.P.U usage . Nothing of concern in that area but that beeping sound you are experiencing need to be figured out.

It doesn't happen over and over...just occasionally. But, as I said, I'm not experiencing any problems...at least yet. Last time I rebooted, shortly thereafter, I heard ONE beep. Several minutes later, TWO. Has been running now for over an hour with no further beeping. Not sure what to do at this point....Thanks.

Hey ... did you check your ram is properly inserted . Try removing it and then inserting it properly in the ram slot.
