I've already checked my task manager, but nothing shows up for the other 6.5 - 7 GB of my RAM that's being used.

 

Here are files, if you need more I will try as I can to show more.

G'day Baitfish, and Welcome to BC.

Go to the Performance tab and check the Resource Monitor (link is at the bottom of that window).

See what's in the Memory tab.

No driver problems, you think that one could be causing a memory leak?

 

And to Usasma, how do I know what's not supposed to be in there? It all looks like it belongs in there.

In short, you look for the stuff that's taking up the most resources.
As there's several different types of memory, it's not always the most obvious one.

For example, my system has about 26 Firefox tabs open at all times - so that'll take up lot's of memory, but it's not a problem for me.

 

If unable to see anything, either post lot's of screenshots after sorting each column (you click on the header for the column to sort by that column)

Or you can tell us the top resource consumers by giving us the image name.

This is only a rough analysis, so don't sweat the details

 

I don't know if this is significant, but you could try this program also:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/588671/approximately-daily-laptop-crash-no-pattern/?p=3834309

I'm just starting with it, but it does have some interesting features for researching memory issues.

What I also noticed in the last picture the system itself is using way over 200mb.

The actual number really doesn't mean all that much in most cases.

Usually it's a a relative thing - and you have to try several of them until you find the culprit.

For example, on my system Firefox consistently takes up the most RAM (as I leave at least 26 tabs open at all times).
But I know that this is somewhat normal based on past behavior.

If I didn't know it, I'd test Firefox first - only to find that it wasn't the problem.

Then I'd move onto the other memory eaters until I found the one that was to blame.
