hi guys i have 6gb ram installed on my motherbaord but windows 8 is only recognising 3.25gb ram i am using 64 bit, my processor is 64bit, so i dont know what i am doing wrong,
i have 2 2gb ram sticks and 2 1gb ram sticks, any help ?
processor: intel core2 duo cpu e4500 @2.2ghz 2.2ghz
intstalled memory (ram) 3.2GB
system type : 64 bit operating system, x64 processor
System overhead and shared DRAM to video is going to take up some - can you post what it shows in system information - right click on my computer and then click on properties
Yes the problem was you had two different brand RAM chipsets in your system. The reason why it wont say 4GB exactly when you took the x2 1GB sticks out is because some of that RAM is dedicated to the OS (Kernal memory) which cant be intervened via program applications. Plus more of that memory will be being used when virtual doing nothing.
This is a screeenshot of my RAM status in task manager. (Sorry you may have to zoom in.)
