For some odd reason, my new Windows 7 32 bit laptop is constantly using 40+ precent of it's installed RAM. I checked my computer's properties and found that Windows is only using 2.84 gigs of my computer's 4 gigs of ram. Is there any way I can force it to use 4 gigs? Or at least, force it to use more than my current amount? I have attached a screenshot of my computer's RAM specs.
I have an older desktop, Acer Aspire running Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit, it had 4gb ram installed (I did know that only 3gb could be used)yesterday I took one of the ram sticks out ( had 4 x 1gb) and put in a different computer. Since then it has started crawling along, I have noticed that it says 3gb ram 1 gb usable. is this something that I need to go into the bios for? I ran the memory diagnostic tool this morning but did not get to see a report.
I have quite a new ASUS laptop, which came with 64bit windows 7 and I took off and installed my copy of Windows 7 32bit (I didn't see the point in having 64bit on a laptop).
When I first installed the OS and everything Windows said I had 3.25GB ram usable or something like that which is normal but for some reason I now only have 2.92 usable and I don't know why >.< (this may have happened when SP1 was installed)
The specs are: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU P6100 @ 2.00GHz 4GB DDR3 Ram Intel HD Graphics Mobile Intel HM55 Express Chipset 320GB 5400RPM HDD

I have 4g of ram. In control panel it is listed 4.00gb RAM(Only 2.00gb usable) I have 2x(2g) sticksMemory hole remapping is enabled. Max memory is unchecked.I have an M4A785-M motherboard.I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.This problem started happening a couple weeks ago.
Okay, this is really weird. Previously, I had had a ordered a kit of 4GB ram with one defective stick. After installing Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit with the good stick, I RMA'd the kit back to newegg. The exchange arrived today, and after installing the new kit of ram, windows only recognizes 3.26GB of it! Under the system information panel, it says:
Installed memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (3.26 useable)
despite me having a 64 bit OS.
Whats up with this? I Memtested the ram and it shows up as only 3255 MB in there also.
decided to install hardware with my computer on and i sliped while putting a pci card in and hit su,tin that booted off my computer. now when i got it back on i have this message in my system properties "4.00 GB installed (3.25 GB usable)" anyone know hot to fix this. im using windows 7 ultimate X64. i think i may have either hit the GPU or a capacitor?
I have installed windows 7 64 bit version on new computer with a 64 bit processor Quad CPU Q8200 233 ghz , I have 4x2gb of DDR2 800 RAM 8gb in total all are same frequency but it lists only (3.19 gb usable) after the 8gb in computer properties.
why isnt windows 7 accessing all my RAM as this is why I moved to 64 bit ?
I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.
I have 6144mb of ram on my Compaq Presario CQ62 402AU. So I have the 2GB Hp stick which came with the laptop (2GB DDR3 1066MHz) and I have a 4GB stick from G-Skill). So there should be 5.76GB usable, but I only have 1.74GB usable. This is what is it when I only had the 2GB. The Bios says there is 6144GB in there. Windows says there 6.0GB in there also.
So what I have tried: - Running Mem Tests (HP one which came with my laptop and Memtestx86) - Taking out the ram and putting them in there sorts again - Taking out the ram, running a pencil eraser over the connecters and then putting them back in - Doing testing so Only 1 is in and try that in both slots for both sticks of ram - Swapping the ram positions - Making sure that Max ram is not selected in Msconfig
So basic System info you may want to know (Most of my profile info is there of my computer) Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit SP1 Installed Memory (Ram) (This is from the basic system info page) 6.00GB (1.74GB Usable). The odd thing is that it worked fine for a while. Today I went to school with the 5.76GB and I come back home 8 hours later, the computer has only been on lock for this time and there is only 1.76GB usable.
I have a computer that is running Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. It has 6 GB of RAM installed, but it says that 3.00 GB are usable. My understanding is that Ultimate 32 bit can handle 4 GB of RAM. What do I have setup in correctly?
i am running windows 7 Home premium 64-bit and recently upgraded my RAM from 3GB to 4GB. Windows 7 reports only 3.25 being usable. i have a dedicated video card an my onboard one is definitely disabled. my BIOS reports 4096MB RAM detected. max memory and CPU are unchecked in msconfig. from looking at the resource monitor i see that 770MB of RAM is labeled as hardware reserved memory.also i don't know if my BIOS supports a memory remap feature or not but even if it does its a locked HP BIOS so most setting are inaccessible.is there any way to get my full memory? or does anyone know why this is happening on a 64-bit os?
I have performance problems. Even though I have 4GB RAM installed physically, my hard disk runs like crazy. A moment ago, I encountered the system report below, which says that only 2GB of my RAM is usable.
My motherboard is the ASUS Maximus III Formula, using Intel Core I5 760. And I recently did a dual boot on my system. One copy of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my original hard drive, and a Windows 7 Home premium x64 bit on another hard drive ( Hitachi ) and after a month or two, I had to format that ( Hitachi ) hard drive as I needed it for extra storage and now I'm getting only 2 Gb usable RAM but I installed 4Gb.
I updated my XP 32 OS to windows 7 64 bit professional. Everything works fine on this upgrade. BUT when i go >start>mycmputer>right click and select properties i see 6 gigs but only 3.25 GB usable. Any way i can use the rest of those gigs. When i bought windows 7 two days ago i bought 2 stick of ram with 2 gigs each stick. so i have (2) 1 gig stick and (2) 2 gig sticks.
Like i sed my PC (Alienware was built in Dic2005) originally was made with 32 OS xp if someone can guide me on how to get my info of my mother board I will be glad to follows those steps so i can post them here and hopefully gets some help. If not I just will return the extra gigs I bought.
PS- I reinstall windows 7 from scratched but with OS 32 bit and I could see the same 6 gigs but only 3.25 gigs usable.
My PC says it has 4GB of RAM installed but only 3.5GB are usable, I have windows 7 home premium X64.
CPU: Athlon II x3 Unlocked to Phenom II X4 @3Ghz. Motherboard: Asrock N68-VS3-UCC RAM: 4GB DDR3 generic brand. HDD: 1x 320GB SATA, 1x 250GB SATA and 1x 250GB IDE GPU: XFX ONE 5400 series PSUEM 500w PSU.
Windows recognized the full 4GB and the whole 4GB were usable but when I checked about 2 days ago it said that only 3.5GB were usable. I started to do a little research and I found out that my GPU might be using Hyper Memory so i tuned off my system, removed the GPU and when I went to see how much RAM was usable it said 4GB installed 3.25GB usable. So its not my GPU.
I have a Trust gaming mouse and for all the buttons to work I should install a driver. However on the site they provide only a 32bit driver for Windows7 and clearly state that a 64bit driver will never be available!
I know you've probably seen dozens of threads like this, but here's an interesting twist:
The laptop it's on (the Compaq Presario V2000) only has 512MB of RAM, and is showing only 383 available. Nothing near the level of the OS restrictions. (Besides, it's 64-bit.) I've already tried the solution here, but the "maximum memory" box was unchecked.
Under my Windows 7 performance information it is listed that I have 2.5 Gigs of usable RAM even though I have 4 installed. I think this is because I have 1.5 GB of graphics memory but I don't fully understand what that is. I also don't understand the difference between the listed "dedicated graphics memory(512MB)" and the "shared system memory" that I guess make up the 1.5 GB I'm "missing".I was thinking of installing a 64 bit version of my OS to take full advantage of my installed memory and I think my system is fully capable. I just need to have the right processor and enough memory to make it worth it correct? I assume my motherboard is capable if it is using a capable processor.
Wasn't sure if this should go here or in the security area. My company has given me a year-old Dell Latitude that they were going to throw out because it got a virus. However, the laptop has all of their network security stuff on it, so I can't even get past the CTRL + ALT + DELETE screen. I mean I can't get in and do anything on this computer. I know I have to buy a new hard drive and probably reinstall Windows 7, but how do I know that this will get rid of everything and give me a clean slate? I don't have accesss to the administrator password, either.
Okay so i have a Quad core x6850 Intel CPU, EVGA 280GTX GPU CARD.
Now i installed window 7 x86 bit version ULTIMATE. And i have 6GB DDR3 RAM INSTALLED INTO MY geforce Nforce 790i motherboard. Now the problem is that in Windows 7 it shows "Installed Memory: 6.00GB (2.75 GB Useable)". But in Bios it shows me that 6gigs in installed.
Now does that mean it is WIN 7 that is just reading my DDR3 RAM WRONG? But i am still getting the full performance for all of my 6GB DDR 3 RAM? Since my bios is reading all of the 6GB RAM?
Also i tried doing what other forums indiated i should be doing like type config and check mark or uncheck mark MAX MEMORY. Tried doing that, but noting happened.
Now the only thats left and i am having confusion with is, some people are saying i should Enable Memory remapping in bios? I have a nforce 790i motherboard, and i can't find that exactly in my bios mode. Is there any other way to fix this problem?
