So, sometimes when i am playing some games like LOL or GTA I listen music from yt on chrome. I've got chrome pages open my browser will say it is out of memory and will stop responding. The thing is, I have 16gbs of ram and when I check the task manager it states that only half of that is being used.
Also I am using discord and after a match for a couple of seconds and go back to normal.
There is ma specs of ram :

What OS are you working with? If Windows 10, please mention the version(not edition) for your OS. As for your motherboard, what BIOS version are you on at the time of writing? Just an FYI, you have a lot of apps running in the background, I'd try and streamline some of it if possible.

what are specs of the PC?
Try updating drivers as often memory leaks are drivers - often network drivers

you can run out of memory and have free ram. Windows counts more than ram as memory, its possibly commitments were full.

next time you run out of memory, can you look on the performance/memory tab of task manager and see how much Paged & non paged pool you are using.

MIght need to use poolmon to identify driver that is cause.

screenshot would just confirm its virtual memory and not ram that is running out

Probably need to run Poolmon to identify the cause
video has both a link to the download site for poolmon and also shows the command you use in Command Prompt to identify the offending driver

You want to sort by Bytes (I think pressing B in the app will sort it in this order
You want to find the non MIcrosoft process that is has the biggest total is Diff as its the difference between Allocs which are how much system has given a process and Frees which is how much the process has given back.
Most of the top processes are normally actually parts of windows as they manage the memory, so obviously use a lot.

here is a list of the more common tags - https://github.com/zodiacon/PoolMonXv2/blob/master/PoolMonX/res/pooltag.txt

I would run poolmon at boot and just get a baseline for usage so when it does have memory problems, you can easily spot the different tags.

poolmon would need to be downloaded. there is a link in the video description. to the windows driver kit, he shows how to install it on video.

See how you go :)

I can't understand language but what did it say to do with page file? delete it? not having a page file will mean memory errors happen faster. Or do you recreate it after a restart?

i don't see how that solves it, it just wipes the page files size maybe.
