I've uninstalled SP1 for now, going to run the laptop again for a while without it.

EDIT: Without SP1, my RAM is climbing up to 4GB again.

EDIT 2: Looks like it was just running some cleanup stuff after removing SP1.

So your saying you've seen a reduction in memory usage after removing Sp1?

For now, yes, as I said earlier, I was never getting the RAM problem before I installed SP1 the first time.

Highly doubt SP1 is the problem.

From the SS you posted memory use doesnt look very high. What does mem tab in resource monitor look like

Same exact stuff running. NOT using SP1.

Total 4028
Cached 758
Available 2825
Free 2183

You explain to me THAT big of a difference? I'm not sitting at 1.27gb not 2.8gb .. I've dropped almost 1gb in TOTAL.

An update to my problem....

It's now happening without SP1 installed. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing the memory usage to go through the roof?

Could be a number of things, show the mem tab in resource monitor and maybe we can help.

Okay, just did a factory reset again, I'm not going to update anything with the OS, so I'm not going to Windows Update at all.
