My computer is a Lenovo Ideapad Y570, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit, Quad Core I7 2.2ghzm 8 gig factory ram, 500 gig primary drive and 750 gig secondary, both upgraded in less than a month.


I use my computer mainly for djing and music producing, so majority of programs have been shut down during start up to prevent issues. Recently i have been getting program crash errors that always point to a memory  hang up or crash. I ran the factory diagnostic program and it told me memory reached over 90% capacity and stayed there for over 3 minutes. I know my program uses extra resources but have never had it stress memory this bad. I am curious if a memory leak could possibly be the issue and how i can check for this. I used Passmark software to stress test  my memory and it found no memory errors.


In addition, i check on memory upgrades and found conflicting answers on upgrade space. According to the crucial website, i am at my max memory capacity, but the Lenovo Solution Center program, it says max usable capacity to be 16 gig. I dont want to spend money on memory upgrades if it is going to be unusable. My computer only has 2 ram slots.

http://www.pcworld.com/product/1302834/lenovo-ideapad-y570-08623tu-notebook.html, then see https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-P-Y-and-Z-series/What-is-the-maximum-Ram-capacity-for-Y570/m-p/695443#M52039 .  That latter link makes sense to me.
