I have a new Lenovo A740 all-in-one desktop. It has a core i7-4558U and 8GB of ram. It is also running a updated version of win 10 home. For some reason i keep getting a pop up on my screen that says "Close programs to prevent information loss, your computer is low on memory. Save your files and close google chrome". I never have a ton of intensive programs open and it always seems to pop up and tells me to close google chrome and/or Skype. When i go into task manager and look at my processes google chrome and Skype are using a very low amount of memory. At the top of the processes there is "System and Compressed Memory" which is using 1,942.8MB of memory and my system says i am currently using 75% of total system memory. What could be causing this is how can i fix it.

Windows 10 is compressing the data stored in RAM because you are running low on available RAM
