WIndows 7 are not utilizing all available memory Tags: Desktops Msconfig Windows RAM Windows 7 Computers Kingston Memory Operating Systems Configuration Last response: January 24, 2014 7:57 PM in Memory Share Odysseas Dryjohn January 24, 2014 2:23:53 PM Hello to everyone, and thanks for your time reading this thread. I recently updated my desktop PC with the items you see in the configuration. The system is completely functional, but mostly I use my computer for gaming, so I need all available memory. The problem Despite that I use a Windows 7 64 bit OS, and recognizes all the installed memory, It doesn't use all available RAM. -To be more specific: When I see my system properties (Computer->right-click->Properties) it recognizes 6GB of the RAM that I have installed, but it says only 3.95 are usable. I searched the threads are in the same category with mine, though I didn't find any solution to my problem. Below I give you my system info: Motherboard: GA-990XA-UD3(rev. 3.0) VGA: Asus GT 640 2GB CPU Brand: AMD FX-4130 3.8Ghz quad-core processor Operation System: Win 7 64-bit SP 1 Memory: Kingston KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX DDR3 6GB (3X2GB) PC12800 1600MHZ HYPERX GENESIS TRIPLE CHANNEL KIT Power Supply : 450 W Question? Is there any way, I can utilize memory to its full power? Again thanks for your time For anyone who asks: - The msconfig solution didn't work, sadly . - I checked my BIOS, and reports 6000 MB of memory .
